Perfect for when you're daydreaming about Jackson Maine.

So you've seen "A Star Is Born" and now you can't stop listening to "Shallow" on repeat (or at least I can't). Although you could replay the soundtrack over and over, you're looking to branch out into some similar music—but where do you start? I had this same dilemma. Lucky for you, I decided to do a bit of rediscovery and digging to compile a little list of some stuff you might enjoy that has a similar sound and feel to the songs from the film. These artists should definitely help you get into that same mood without forcing you to relive the fifty thousand emotions you will surely feel after seeing this movie.

The Civil Wars

This is probably one of my favorite artists in general. The Civil Wars is a male/female duo whose folk-like songs are simply stunning. They have stuff that ranges from heartfelt ballads to more upbeat tunes. Unfortunately, they don't make music anymore but Joy Williams (one of the members of the group) still does and she just released a couple of songs pretty recently.

Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors

This band I discovered while looking for artists to include on this list. After listening to a few of their songs, I knew they would make a great addition. They also have a pretty folk-like sound about them, but with a bit of mellow pop blended in. The lead singer has a wonderful voice, too.

Taylor John Williams

I already had a song by this guy on my Spotify playlist which has the sound I was looking for to include here so I assumed his other songs must too. I was right. Williams was actually a contestant on "The Voice" and now has a couple of albums and EPs he has released on his own. I could listen to him sing all day. His songs remind me a lot of the sweet, simple songs from "A Star Is Born"; especially Bradley Cooper's "Maybe It's Time".

First Aid Kit

This is another artist I had listened to a little before and felt would be right at home on this list. This female duo's music is hard to pinpoint to just one genre but it definitely has tones of folk, country, and pop (just like "A Star Is Born"). Their voices have that sort of 'twang' (I don't know how to describe it) that reminds you of good country songs.

City and Colour

Another favorite of mine, this artist has an amazing voice and music made for singing along to. The use of acoustic instrumentation in all of the songs makes each feel beautifully raw and emotional. The singer, Dallas Green, probably has one of the best voices in the music industry (in my humble opinion).

I hope you enjoy some of this music! It all reminds me of the same general feeling "A Star Is Born" gave me. If you haven't seen it yet, you definitely should. Just be prepared to cry and think about it for an entire week afterward.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.

Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?

For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
