    Today's Lively Show episode is the perfect blend of deep introspection, inspiration, practical how-to, and fun!I'm talking with Caroline Rector of the minimalist fashion blog, Unfancy.Caroline's blog focuses on creating a "capsule wardrobe," which - for her - means wearing the same 37 pieces (including shoes!) for three months at a time.I knew I had to have her on the show to share the journey that brought her to the concept... and share her insights for those of us who would like to attempt a similar experiment in our own wardrobes.This show is perfect for anyone interested in trying a creative wardrobe framework, simplifying, discovering their true style, or tackling difficult shopping issues.    IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL FIND OUT ABOUT  The two big limiting beliefs that Caroline had to overcome in her life which eventually brought her to style and fashion blogging. How Caroline reexamined her negative thought patterns and mainstream media messages in order to change the way she looked at herself and reality. (Heads up: we talk about breasts.) The four month long soul journey that Caroline went on between ending her previous career and starting her new one as a minimalist fashion blogger. Where the concept of capsule collections comes from, and the blogs that helped introduce Caroline to the concept initially. Why Caroline has settled on the number 37 for her capsule collections. How Caroline approaches setting the number of pieces in a capsule collection and her suggestions for others thinking to do something similar. Caroline's approach to shopping when she's creating a capsule. The step-by-step guide to starting your own capsule collection experiment. The revelations that Caroline experienced from not clothes shopping for long periods of time. How this shift in shopping and style has impacted the rest of Caroline's life.

  • PB089: The Second Most Important Thing You’ll Ever Do as an Entrepreneur

    · ProBlogger Podcast: Blog Tips to Help You Make Mon

    Note: you can listen to this episode above or load it up in iTunes. How the Story of the Cavanagh Brothers Can Help You Find Blogging Success In today's episode, I share the inspiring story of the Cavanagh Brothers. It's a tale of finding success and glory through stamina and dedication over a long period of time, something that holds true for finding blogging success. It reveals the second most important thing you'll ever do as an entrepreneur. In This Episode You can listen to today's episode above or in iTunes or Stitcher (where we'd also LOVE to get your reviews on those platforms if you have a moment). In today's episode: The story of the Cavanagh Brothers How the story can help you find blogging success The second most important thing you’ll ever do as an entrepreneur The Story of the Cavanagh Brothers The year was 1851 and two brothers stood by a bend in a creek that had wishfully been named by gold prospectors 'Golden Point' in days gone by. The two brothers' surname was Cavanagh and they'd been digging, along with around 600 other miners, in their 'claim' at Golden Point for days. Some gold had definitely been found on this particular bend in the creek. In fact numerous miners had made good, although not spectacular, money from their finds in previous weeks. Most of the gold had been found in the sandy ground to a depth of around 1 meter (3.2 feet) but at that point everyone who dug hit a hard layer of clay and received no reward for their effort. Digging through the sandy ground wasn't hard but as soon as they hit clay it became back breaking work. The result was that the area was littered with abandoned claims. Holes in the ground were everywhere, all dug to a depth of around 1 meter. Miners around the Cavanagh brothers that day were beginning to talk of rumors coming from further up creek of richer pickings and in the 24 hours that followed most of the men had moved on. But the brothers Cavanagh had a hunch. They wanted to see what would happen if they dug deeper and so began the arduous task of digging into the hard clay that everyone else had stopped digging into. They chose an abandoned claim from another miner and began to dig. The work was hard and unrewarding. They dug and found nothing but more clay. Inch by inch they chipped away at the clay only to find more clay. All day they dug. The second morning they continued to dig as the last miners around them abandoned their claims and moved on to chase their dreams up creek. I can just imagine the other miners abandoning their claims shaking their heads as they looked at the Cavanagh brothers and laughing at their foolhardy efforts. But the brothers had a belief and kept their focus. As sunset approached on the 2nd day, and after hours of back breaking work the brothers finally broke through the last of the clay at around the depth of 2 meters. Under the clay they found what centuries ago been the old bed of the creek and in it were pockets of gold which had been washed down the creek from the mountains over hundreds of years. The brothers worked into the night feverishly until the light from their lamps gave up. Imagine how they must have felt as they attempted to sleep that night! The next day they rose early and assessed their work. In the light of day the full reality of what they’d uncovered started to sink in. There was gold down below that clay, and lots of it! In a single day alone the Cavanagh brothers found 27 kilograms (60 pounds) of gold. That day's takings alone earned the men over £3,500 which was more than enough to set the two brothers up for life. Word quickly spread of the brothers' success. One month later, 10,000 miners worked in the area around Golden Point and the wider Ballarat area and it became known as the richest ...

  • Caroline Hirons: Rock, Reputation and Being Heard

    · PODCASTS - EMMA GUNS

    Rock chicks of the world unite! Caroline and I met at a Mötley Crüe concert, which is why this show starts, not with a deep-dive into all things skincare, but a reverie of our favourite rock bands - and rock gods. We talk about the concerts we were both at in the 1980s, the rock stars that make us go weak at the knees and Caroline's incredible backstage experiences... Music aside, Caroline is famous in the beauty world for her no-nonsense approach to skincare - an objective approach earned from over thirty years in the industry. Her reviews have the ability to sell-out product - dubbed 'The Caroline Hirons Effect' - and leave the shelves of major beauty retailers completely bare. She has worked on the shop floor, has consulted for years with brands and has probably had something to do with the creation of many of the products living in your bathroom cabinet right now.  Because, who doesn't love an instagram story..? Caroline is someone I've admired for a while, not least because she seems true to and at ease with herself. When she speaks people listen and I wanted to unpick when she realised her voice was one that was being heard by a huge audience, as well as by the upper echelons of the industry. As she says in the show, having spent years in corporate business, realising that her true voice was one that was influential felt great. It's a responsibility she doesn't take lightly and Caroline is a bit like your best friend and your mum - and perhaps that's why she's garnered such a massive global audience who really trust her. Her website www.carolinehirons.com is a portal reviews, advice and must-read 'cheat sheets' and you can follow her on instagram @carolinehirons and twitter @carolinehirons. Pic credit: Dan Kennedy Caroline launched her first ever skincare product this year - Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse, £24, and I ask her whether we can expect more products and innovations with her name on it... We also chat about acne and her tips for how to handle it and why it's such an emotional issue. As a qualified facialist Caroline talks about intuition and about the times either putting her hands on someone's skin or seeing something she thought was suspicious has possibly saved lives.   Caroline also started the non-profit initiative Give & Makeup that aims to get everyday essentials into the hands of the women and children who need them. Whilst composing a blog post on beauty essentials Caroline started thinking about the people who have nothing, found this page on the Refuge website, scrapped the blog post and created the initiative. If you want to donate cosmetics, toiletries, clothes and childrens' clothes follow this link >> how to donate. Finally, if you want Caroline to return for a second instalment of the show then email me at thebeautypodcast@gmail.com or tweet me @emmaguns using #EGpodcast.

Rock and Roll Hall of Famers joined current and former members of the Allman Brothers Band for a 26-song salute to Gregg Allman Friday night in Atlanta. Sam Moore, Dr. John and Jackson Browne took turns interpreting Allman’s extensive catalog along with Vince Gill, Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes, John Hiatt, Zac Brown, Widespread Panic and others during "All My Friends: Celebrating the Songs & Voice of Gregg Allman," which was recorded to air on AXS TV in May. For the sold-out crowd at the historic 4,600-seat Fox Theatre, this rainy night in Georgia proved to be a dream jam.

On February 18th Epic/Legacy Recordings will release Play All Night: Live at The Beacon Theatre 1992, a two disc set highlighting this historic run of shows. Kicking off on March 10th, these Beacon shows blended recent fan favorites like “Get On With Your Life,” “End Of The Line,” and “Nobody Knows” with such stone cold classics as “Statesboro Blues,” “Blue Sky,” “Jessica,” “Revival,” and of course, “Whipping Post,” all played with the distinctive invention and muscularity that defined this particular ABB line-up. Play All Night sees the Brothers unplug for a three-song acoustic interlude encompassing bare-boned renditions of Betts’ “Seven Turns” and Allman’s “Midnight Rider,” as well as a buoyant take on the Robert Johnson standard, “Come On In My Kitchen.” Also available on February 18th is Live At Great Woods, a feature-length concert DVD filmed at Massachusetts’ Great Woods Center for the Performing Arts in September of 1991. http://www.allmanbrothersband.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=userpage&file=content&page_id=65 William Hurt has been cast as the present-day version of Gregg Allman in the upcoming biopic Midnight Rider, Variety reports.

Shortly afterwards, it was confirmed that Warren Haynes would also be departing. Both musicians have highly successful touring bands independent of the Brothers, with Trucks winning a Grammy in 2012. Trucks and Haynes were both influential lead guitarists with The Allman Brothers. Trucks, a former child prodigy and now the driving guitarist behind the Grammy-winning Tedeschi Trucks Band, has been with the Brothers for 15 years, since he was twenty. Haynes, the roaring guitar genius behind Gov’t Mule, has been with the band since 1989. The move comes shortly after (incorrect) news from a Rolling Stone Magazine article, from a statement by Gregg Allman, that longtime bassist Oteil Burbridge would be leaving the band. Burbridge and Butch Trucks adamantly denied the rumors, which appear to have simply been a matter of miscommunication. http://www.americanbluesscene.com/2014/01/influential-guitarists-leaving-allman-brothers-band-in-2015/ Last piece of news this week: From Brian MacDonald-Grammy-winning International superstar singer Jack Jones-fresh off his appearance in "American Hustle"-is recording a new CD (produced by Grammy/Oscar legend Rick Jarrard), and has picked one of Brian’s songs as the first single... recording started yesterday, and it should be out before the Oscars.

  • Caroline Winberg

    · Sommar & Vinter i P1

    Supermodell Det fanns ingen bättre känsla än när ens agent ringde och sa du fick det, berättar supermodellen Caroline Winberg om glädjen att bli bokad på sina första modelljobb då hon hade flyttat till Paris för att bli modell. Det var i Paris som Caroline lärde sig att bli vuxen, tiden hon gjorde sina första misstag och såg på löpsedlarna hur journalister och tidningar förvrängde dessa och gjorde henne skeptisk till journalister, något som är sant än idag. Hennes resa tog henne vidare till New York där hon spatserade ut från sin första fotograferin trött och sur. Caroline såg tillbaka på den tiden och tyckte att det var komiskt att hon var mer ”bortkämd” än idag, då hon biter ihop och ligger på ett isflak i en tunn klänning eller väcks extremt tidigt på morgonen för att gå på en fitting med Karl Lagerfeldt. Caroline Winbergs program är även en resa med hennes person – barndomschocken som gjorde att hon aldrig vill ha djur igen; att hon älskar barn men den gången hon var gravid tog hon beslutet att avsluta graviditeten – tills hon kan få det med rätt person. Programmet tillägnar Caroline bland annat styvfadern som älskade henne och hennes syskon trots att de inte var hans ”riktiga barn”, som Caroline själv säger: ”Jag vet inte vad det skulle ha blivit av mig i livet utan er.” Om Caroline Winberg Supermodellen som är programledare för Top Model Sverige på TV3. Har varit på omslaget för modemagasin som Vogue, Elle och Damernas Värld. Har varit modell för många av världens mest kända modehus – bland andra Armani, D&G, Tommy Hilfiger, Valentino och Versace. Upptäcktes som femtonåring när hon var på väg till fotbollsträning. Hon spelade för AIK, Solna. - Mitt Sommarprat kommer att handla om allt annat än att jag blev upptäckt som modell på väg till en fotbollsträning. Producent: Erika Strand-Berglund

  • Devon - Hope Cove to Salcombe

    · Ramblings

    Clare Balding joins Gordon and Caroline Luff and their son, Sam, to walk a section of the South West Coastal Path from Hope Cove to Salcombe. This is thought to be one of the most beautiful stretches of the 630 mile long distance footpath where kestrels and peregrine falcons can be seen flying above the cliffs and seals can sometimes be seen down below. The walk is one that Gordon and Caroline have done several times but, after surviving breast cancer in 2001, Caroline then faced agonising back pain resulting in spinal surgery in 2010. Throughout both her treatment for cancer and surgery on her back, Caroline was determined to continue with the walking that she loves. The last time Gordon and Caroline walked from Hope Cove to Salcombe ended in tears with Caroline convinced that she would never walk again. Along with their son Sam, Clare joins Gordon and Caroline as they return to the aptly named Hope Cove to walk the route to Salcombe, something that Caroline can now do pain-free. And when the group reach Soar Mill Cove, nobody can resist taking off their walking boots and running into the sea for a paddle. Presenter: Clare Balding Producer: Helen Chetwynd.

Good luck next week!! Black-Eyed News: In a year of declining album sales, Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience was the biggest selling album of 2013, according to Billboard. A total of 2.43 million copies sold. While the ranking is certainly an honor for Timberlake, it's less flattering for the record industry as a whole: The 20/20 Experience was the only album to sell over 2 million in 2013, which marks the lowest top-seller in SoundScan's 22 years of tracking sales. The previous low came in 2008, with Lil Wayne's Tha Carter III selling 2.87 million copies. Rounding out the top 10 was Eminem's acclaimed The Marshall Mathers LP 2 (1.73 million), Luke Bryan's Crash My Party (1.52 million), Imagine Dragons' Night Visions (1.4 million), Bruno Mars' Unorthodox Jukebox (just under 1.4 million), Florida Georgia Line's Here's to the Good Times (1.35 million), Drake's Nothing Was the Same (1.34 million), Beyoncé's surprise LP Beyoncé (1.3 million), Blake Shelton's Based on a True Story (1.11 million) and Jay Z's app-backed Magna Carta...Holy Grail (1.1 million). What do we think this means to the future of album sales? Total sold in top 10 14.67 Million average of 1.46 million per but 7 of those albums were not even close to that number. Editorial Aside: What is to blame for the low sales? Piracy claims the record company; the artists say streaming is the villain here. But how about the cost of an album at the store. Not a digital copy but a hard copy. I have seen them for as much as $18 in the store. Also quality some of the stuff is just not that good. Back to the Numbers: The top single sales were led by a different set of artists. Robin Thicke's ubiquitous "Blurred Lines" came in at Number One with 6.5 million sales. Mackemore and Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop" was a close second, with 6.15 million. The other top sellers were Imagine Dragons ("Radioactive," 5.5 million), Florida Georgia Line ("Cruise," 4.69 million), Lorde ("Royals," 4.42 million), Katy Perry ("Roar," 4.41 million), P!nk featuring Nate Ruess ("Just Give Me a Reason," 4.32 million), another from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis ("Can't Hold Us," 4.26 million), Bruno Mars ("When I Was Your Man," 3.93 million) and Rihanna ("Stay," 3.85 million). http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/justin-timberlakes-20-20-experience-tops-2013-album-sales-20140103#ixzz2pZu3Stlq Phil Everly, whose hits with his older brother, Don, as the Everly Brothers carried the close fraternal harmonies of country tradition into pioneering rock ’n’ roll, died on Friday in Burbank, Calif. He was 74. The group’s official website said he died in a hospital near his home in Southern California. His son Jason said the cause of death was complications of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. With songs like “Wake Up Little Susie,” “Bye Bye Love,” “Cathy’s Clown,” “All I Have to Do Is Dream” and “When Will I Be Loved?,” which was written by Phil Everly, the brothers were consistent hitmakers in the late 1950s and early 1960s. They won over country, pop and even R&B listeners with a combination of clean-cut vocals and the rockabilly strum and twang of their guitars. They were also models for the next generations of rock vocal harmonies for the Beatles, Linda Ronstadt, Simon and Garfunkel and many others who recorded their songs and tried to emulate their precise, ringing vocal alchemy. The Everly Brothers were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in its first year, 1986. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/05/arts/music/phil-everly-half-of-pioneer-rock-duo-dies-at-74.html?hpw&rref=arts&_r=0 Blues man Tabby Thomas, a well known & widely influential Baton Rouge musician, club owner, radio DJ and recording artist, and the father of blues musician & actor Chris Thomas King, has passed away. He was 84 and just four days shy of his birthday. Born Ernest J. Thomas in Baton Rouge January 5th, 1929, Thomas owned and operated a blues club called Tabby’s Blues Box and Heritage Hall for nearly three decades until it’s closure in 2004. “There was something about Tabby’s Blues Box,” wrote Chelsea Brasted for the New Orleans Times Picayune, “An intangible quality seeped out of the joint on nights when legends were being made on its stage, solidifying its place in local music lore.” Thomas has long been one of the best known blues musicians in Baton Rouge. Having learned music in a local church Choir as a child, and following an Air Force stint, Tabby relocated to California and began a touring and recording career, notably with Hollywood Records and the well-known Excello Records label. Returning to Louisiana, Tabby’s records were quickly played on local radio on New Orleans’ WBOK. His music earned him a spot at New Orleans’ famed Dew Drop Inn venue — a premiere live blues room that was host to Sam Cooke, Ray Charles, Guitar Slim and dozens more top acts of the time. He caught the attention of Louis Armstrong, who arranged for the Eric Shaw Agency to book Thomas a tour. Tabby’s son, Grammy award winner Chris Thomas King, found his first experiences at the club that he helped his father create. He signed his first recording contract with Sire Records, a subsidiary of Warner Brothers, at Tabby’s Heritage Hall. King went on to sell more than ten million records, earning a Grammy for Album of the Year for his cover of Skip James’ “Hard Time Killing Floor Blues” track on the O! Brother Where Art Thou? soundtrack. King famously played bluesman Tommy Johnson in the film. http://www.americanbluesscene.com/2014/01/famed-baton-rouge-bluesman-passes-away/ Rolling Stone Magazine recently published a story reporting that Allman Brothers bass player Oteil Burbridge, the man who has been providing the lower end for the Allman Brothers for decades is leaving the band. Fans of the band immediately began protesting and about the shake-up. “We’re here to assure you that that is not true,” said Oteil, refuting the claim on Social Media, “and he will be playing with the Allman Brothers throughout 2014. Happy New Year and thank you to all the fans for your support!” Oteil also had this to say on his website: “For the record…. It was an amazing experience recording and playing with the Zac Brown Band and with Dave Grohl in November. It was an awesome time and a reunion of sorts for me with old friends Chris Fryar, Penn Robertson, and Eric Pretto (the drummer, bass tech and guitar tech for ZBB, respectively) who I’ve known for over a decade. I am proud to be part Zac’s record. 2014 will mark the beginning of my 16th year with the Allman Brothers and as we celebrate the bands 45th anniversary, it reminds me what a huge part of my musical life this incredible band has been. I’m really grateful and proud to be such a big part of the ABB history. And we ain’t done yet! I certainly hope to work with the Zac Brown Band again in the future. They are incredibly talented and great guys. Wherever I land in the future, I hope my fans understand that my primary concern is for the wellbeing of my family and will continue to bring you the highest level of groove and improv that I can muster.” http://www.americanbluesscene.com/2014/01/trucks-says-oteils-staying-put-despite-rolling-stone-story/ and Lastly Jack White has a new album in the works, and it looks like it could be coming out soon. In a recent chat with fans on the message board of his label, Third Man Records, White dropped the news: "I'm producing two albums this month, and finishing them," he said. "One of them is mine." Assuming White is referring to a solo album, this could mean a follow-up to 2012's Blunderbuss will be appearing shortly. In an interview with Rolling Stone last February, White mentioned that he had 20 to 25 songs already written. "It's definitely not one sound," he said of the new material. "It's definitely several. Like you heard in Blunderbuss, there's many different styles there. I don't pick my style and then write a song. I just write whatever comes out of me, and whatever style it is is what it is, and it becomes something later." http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/jack-white-finishing-up-new-album-20140105#ixzz2pZxGOBhK Blues In The Area: 1/10 FRIDAY Ronnie Earl - The Katherine Hepburn Center for the Arts (8pm) - Old Saybrook, CT Dan Stevens - Perks & Corks (9pm) - Westerly, RI Johnny Hoy & the Bluefish - Chan's (8pm) - Woonsocket, RI Blues Alley - The Mona Lisa Restaurant (8-11pm) - Wolcott, CT Eight To The Bar - The Knickerbocker Cafe (8pm) - Westerly, RI 1/11 SATURDAY The Alexis P.

  • Caroline Shaw Lives Life Beautifully

    · Meet the Composer

    Caroline Shaw began her love affair with music at the age of two, when her mom started teaching her violin. Throughout her childhood, Caroline had a lesson every Wednesday afternoon, and sang and played in school and at music camps, falling for chamber music by Mozart and Clara Schumann. Caroline always made things; when she was bowled over by a Brahms sonata, she'd try and figure out how to construct her own sonatas. As a young adult, she continued on a rigorous, violin-centric path, earning both undergrad and masters degrees in violin performance from Rice University and the the Yale School of Music. But after Yale, her life took a slight detour; Caroline had never stopped writing, and despite having never had a formal lesson in her life, Caroline was accepted to Princeton University's PhD program in composition. Just two years later, at age 30, she became youngest person ever to win the Pulitzer Prize in music. Tune in to find out how Caroline synthesizes old forms with new techniques to create her arresting, beautiful music.
