Name For You

 

I’m currently planning a trip back up to my second home–the Northwest–and “Name For You” is by far one of the highlights on the travel playlist that I am making for my trip.

I’ve always had a special place in my heart for The Shins, as they were my first ever concert. Their music is simply feel-good music, and I have truly never been in a bad mood while listening to them. This song echoes that feeling and is also just such a great song to have on while driving.

Needless to say, I honestly cannot wait to see what else they have in store for us and the March release of their new album “HEARTWORMS”.

A 1000 Times

 

Towards the end of 2016, I was introduced into a lot of good music.

One song that I’ve really been digging is “A 1000 Times” by Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam. It has honestly become one of my go-to driving songs for when I’m out and about or just coming home from work.

With the new year, I am definitely looking forward to discovering more good music.

What are y’all loving right now?

50-and-under-for-her-gift-guide

I honestly cannot believe Christmas is this week!

I’ve yet to wrap my gifts and I need to figure out what I’m going to wear for Midnight Mass and for the big day. In actuality, I just have been putting off a-lot of Christmas related things as it had not felt like that time of the year down here until this past weekend (yay for cooler temps!).

Here’s to the most wonderful and stressful time of the year!

2016-gift-guide-25-and-under-for-her

 

As much as we all love the holiday season, it can honestly be a really be a stressful time, especially when you are shopping for others. Don’t worry y’all, no matter if they’re a a music lover, planner, bibliophile, beauty junkie, cat lover, or a wannabe chef, you’ll find something for everyone who is on your list.

And for those who are struggling to find that perfect gift, I have cultivated a few lists of some of my personal favorites (starting with this one) to help you out. I personally love to go with more quirky gifts, hence the cat coloring book for the cat lover in your life (seriously though…they probably have enough stuffed cats as it is) or a sassy mug for the bibliophile.

Just remember that they’ll be happy just with knowing you thought of them this holiday season.

Happy holiday shopping y’all!

Million Reasons

 

For those of you who’ve followed me for a while know that I’m a fan of Lady Gaga. She is just so talented, and I love how she seems to truly have a good soul.

Speaking of talent, how amazing is this performance?!

Perfect Illusion

 

Whether you love her or love to hate her–Lady Gaga is back and at it again!

For those who’ve followed this blog and my ramblings for a while now, you know that I am a fan of the Lady. So of course, I’m quite excited that she is working on a new album, and rumor has it that the wonderful Florence Welch (among many) is collaborating with her on it.

As for “Perfect Illusion”, it’s definitely a song that took a few listens for me to truly get into it. It is catchy, though, and I honestly see it as good workout song for when I hit the treadmill or even for riding around in the car.
