Met Fred Armisen with my friend @lydjuhthedino after his show at Berklee last night! Such a good time! Laughed a lot. He’s literally the sweetest and so soft spoken! ☺️ haha.
This is my new original song "No Other Man!" I entered it in Guitar Center’s Singer Songwriter 3 contest! This is probably the biggest contest I’ve ever entered. The grand prize is a 4 song EP produced by Don Was! As well as $25,000 and a ton of cool gear! This is an incredible opportunity… and, I need YOUR help! :)
Please, watch my video and SHARE it from MY GUITAR CENTER CHANNEL, to help me gain points! I have one week to try to make it into the Top 100! If I do, I have a chance at being hand picked to compete in the Top 10!!!
If you like it then, PLEASE! Watch, share, reblog! Literally… ANYTHING helps! Thank you so much! <3

t-t-tiapet asked: Hey Brittany, So I watch your videos all the time on you tube for inspiration and because you're amazing! (obviously!) but I was wondering how you record for your videos and piano stuff (btw I have the same piano!). I really want to get started putting covers up except I don't know where to start. If you could help me, I would be extremely greatful and It would pretty much make my dreams come true about sharing my voice wit the world.
Hi!! :) Well, for my past YouTube videos I’ve just recorded straight into my camera! Nothing fancy! But, I’ve since got a MIDI cable to connect from my keyboard to my UX2 audio interface so that it can record the keyboard at more of a studio quality! So, that’s something to look into! but, so far I’ve done fine with recording straight into the camera like normal! Just make sure it’s a good quality camera, of course!! :)
Thanks so much! <3
HOW TO: Make a Homemade Starbucks Strawberry Smoothie!
After watching my smoothie be made every morning for the last four years, I finally stopped to notice that they use ingredients you can pick up at the local grocery store. What I’ve come up with tastes as close to exact as I can get, I think. Very happy with it, annnnd I’m saving $5 on my breakfast everyday!
Ingredients / What I use:
- Large Blender (I got mine at a dollar store for $20)
- Grande cup from Starbucks
- Strawberry Perserves
- 2% Milk
- One whole Banana
- 1 scoop of protein powder (I use EAS Lean 15 - Vanilla Cream flavor, and the measurement cup that comes with it.)
- 1 cup of crushed ice (It blends better.)
The steps are basically in the same order I listed the ingredients.
- Scoop out the Strawberry Preserves until it’s thickly coating the bottom of the cup. (Or as much as you want, but not too much!)
- Add 2% milk until it reaches the second black measurement line.
- Mix with a spoon until milk is pale pink.
- Add mix to blender.
- Add one whole banana.
- Add one scoop protein powder.
- Add one cup crushed ice.
- Blend until very smooth!
And, that’s it! Haha, there you go!! Enjoy!!
After achieving the exact recipe… I got Starbucks cups to drink my homemade strawberry smoothies in! Haha. #savingmoney
Here’s a Before & After of one of my favorite shots of Brendon from yesterday! :) I’ve never done a B&A before… But, I thought some of you might be interested.
Anonymous asked: You just edit the coloring of your photographs? With photoshop right? Can you post a tutorial someday? Thanks in advance if you do. Because i love it!
Hi! I think editing a photo and taking a photo are two different things. In my experience, the photo has to be decent to start with. And, then the editing just helps take it to the next level.
There’s different editing tools aside from coloring that I use. (i.e. Curves, Levels…) But, as a poor college student I use the free website Pixlr to edit my photos. It’s like a free alternative to photoshop if you’re looking to use mostly the basic tools. (Which I’ve found to be just fine for me, personally.)
So, yeah! :D I’ve never thought about doing a tutorial before.. But, hum. Maybe! haha. Thanks!! <3
she-looked-like-death asked: PS your photography is amazing. You're extremely talented, and i can holy hope I can be like you :b
…Oh, yes! hahaha. Wow, thank you so much! <3 :’)
