Spotted on I Heart Daily ...

Valentine's Day may be over, but that doesn't mean sharing the love has to end. I Heart Daily recently interviewed Hannah Brencher, founder of The World Needs More Love Letters. The site encourages people to write love letters to the world and leave them in places for people to find. I love that idea! I also love that you can request a love letter to be sent to someone.

Azealia Banks. I knew the name. I saw her photos. I heard she played a Chanel party. But what did I really know about her? Not a damn thing. Until now. I came across a recent Complex profile on Azealia a few days ago. Why didn't I know about her before! I can totally relate to her "everything going well then suddenly losing it all" backstory, plus I love that she wants to stand out and bring something new to the scene. I can't wait to hear her debut album, "Broke With Expensive Taste." Isn't that title everything!
