Hey guys!


HAPPY 4TH BIRTHDAY HOUSE IN THE SAND!


Exactly four years ago I created this website.
I know it's a typical thing to say, but it doesn't feel like four years at all.

I have learned so incredibly much about the music industry, about the craft I decided to make mine, the people I work with and I learned a lot about myself.

HITS allows me to meet new people all the time - and because of that I made some wonderful friends.
To be able to combine my love for music, writing and photography into for this website, and then have people check out what I create, is something I'll never stop being grateful for.

Within these years I got to interview some of my favourite artists and bands, got to photograph some brilliant shows, started portrait photography, went on tour with a band, travelled to various cities and countries, shot single and EP covers and somehow managed to never fall out of love with all the madness behind the scenes.

To all the beautiful and talented artists and bands who are a part of four years of HITS,
thank you - this wouldn't be a home for music lovers without you.

To all incredibly skilled and supportive people behind the scenes - you know who you are and you know I adore you.

To all wonderful and lovely readers - you are the reason we can keep going. Seeing you share, read and comment still feels surreal. Thank you for being interested.

I could say a lot more and I'm sure after I hit "publish", I'll think of millions of things I should've said.

But I hope you know that I sincerely feel like the luckiest little cat lady to do this.

To celebrate today the way we should, here are the highlights of all performances we received this year.

Thank you!

Day 27: Best Of: Birthday Wishes | #HITSBC16




Hey guys!

The performance bit of the Birthday Countdown is over.
I honestly can't believe how fast this month has gone by.

We were able to spend 26 days of incredible performances, which I'm going to talk about tomorrow.
Today I'd like to focus on the lovely, heart warming, supportive and funny birthday wishes we've received for our fourth year of existence.

It makes me so proud to say that I've managed to invite some of the most wonderful people to join us for our birthday party.

There are so many things that I could say now, but I'd rather have you watch this video and come back for some of my cheesiness tomorrow.


Thank you for deciding to spend some time on house in the sand.
It truly means a lot!
