"What is a Plaid Brixx?"

The Nashville Knack: Plaid Brixx

Plaid Brixx are one of those bands that you think more about the name at first, but you are drawn in to listening to their music out of this curiosity. The after effects of playing a song by Plaid Brixx is pure and joyful, but simply listening to a song by the band does not complete the character of this energetic, fun, and lively trio of talented musicians.

The first member of the band that I met was Chris Duggan (Lead Vocals/ Guitar). Chris certainly stood out with his uplifting charisma and high amounts of energy ready to be used on stage (See picture below for a visual representation). I soon met Mark LeRose (Drums) and Jared Sawaya (Keys).

Mark was the first person that Chris convinced to join his band, after asking him a few times to cover Blink 182 songs in high school. The unique nature of the band makes their music stand out more. An interesting fact about Mark is that he is a substitute teacher, and has been recognized by his former students at shows.

Jared has an interesting back story coming from United Arab Emirates to move in the United States. After coming to the United States, he went to Chris and Mark's show. He was welcomed with open arms after the show. He wanted to play music with Chris and Mark so he started by learning to play keys just to be in the band.

It is one thing for a band to have incredible music, but having personality to back each performance makes the experience that much more enjoyable. Even before I sat down to do the interview, Chris was jumping up and down with excitement ready to play the show (Note this was three hours before their performance).

After their start in 2013, the journey that the band has been on has brought them to many great journeys playing in the smallest venues imaginable, being nominated for an independent music award in 2015, and now on their dream tour with the hit band We The Kings (Listen to "Check Yes Juliet" for a flashback).

Of course this did not come easy, but with songs like "Don't Look Down" they have yielded amazing results racking up over 100,000 views since the start of their tour. The question of what these songs are inspired by are girls and aiming to make people happy with every play. Goal achieved.

Plaid Brixx brings a unique combination of fiery spirit, energy, and character in every song. The band holds a lot potential with the future to come. With the tour with We The Kings, Plaid Brixx will rise to take over the future of the music industry.

We've all been there. You see that super cute guy on your dating app of choice, his bio is funny, and then, the gut-wrenching feeling hits when you see their political views don't exactly line up with yours. He loves Trump, you can't stand him, or vice versa.

A lot of people will say you can get over politics, but I know from personal experience, as well as this survey, that politics play a huge role in whether a relationship will work or if we're even willing to swipe right on that profile.

CBD Lip Balm Is The Calming Presence You Need In Your Life, Trust Me

I tried lip balm, sleep gummies, and an oil dropper from CBDistillery. Here's the final verdict.


CBD has been on making waves within the wellness space for the last few years. Generally related to the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, it's growing easier to find small CBD companies who are making products specifically designed to fit your needs. As FDA rules for CBD production can be a little hazy, it's true that not all CBD products are created equally. That's why it's important to look into the manufacturing of whatever you're deciding to try, especially if you're new to taking CBD.

As someone who has tried a variety of CBD products — some victories, some failures — I was thrilled when CBDistillery sent me a package of their favorites. They included a Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture, their Nighttime Gummies, and a CBD Lip Balm.

Kamala Harris Is The Biggest Hypocrite Of The #MeToo Movement

A vote for Joe Biden is a vote for Kamala Harris — and no one wants a hypocrite for a vice president.

Joe Biden just chose Kamala Harris to be his running mate against Donald Trump and Mike Pence in 2020. Now, for many reasons, this is hilarious as I think Biden just solidified his fate and gave the election to President Trump, but that's for another time.

With no sign of the pandemic going anywhere, brides and grooms who planned to be married in 2020 are forced to opt for plan B — if not plan C or D. While some are downsizing their in-person weddings to meet coronavirus guidelines and state restrictions, others are choosing to cancel theirs until further notice and some, well, they're embracing the virtual "I do."

A few weekends ago, I had the pleasure of attending a Zoom wedding for my friend and fellow editor and writer, Kristin Magaldi, and the short-but-sweet ceremony left me in happy tears (surprise surprise). In order to get the scoop on what exactly went into planning a virtual wedding, I asked Kristin to share her best tips so other couples know exactly how to have a Zoom wedding in case they're looking to lean into the video chat vows, too.
