Good Morning and Happy Friday, everyone!
After a busy work week (that came with plenty of snow!), I’m looking forward to a long holiday weekend to unwind, decompress- and also head back into NYC for a day away!
Leading up to this weekend, I’ve compiled a quick, 10-track playlist of the songs I’ve been listening to over and over lately- typically when I’m in my bedroom and getting ready for work and/or to go out for the night. They get me dancing, or singing along- usually both- and I’ve dubbed this my honorary Spring playlist for 2017- even if we haven’t quite reached Spring yet!
We’re almost there, though- right?
Featuring tracks from Fitz & The Tantrums, Warpaint and Kings of Leon- among others- here’s my latest mix, courtesy of 8Tracks: “Bedroom Dance Party!”
Have a great weekend!
Good afternoon from my couch, where I’ve been recuperating from a pretty intense battle with a flu that’s been spreading around! I’m slowly on the mend, feeling a little better with each day that passes, but I took yesterday afternoon and today in it’s entirety off from work to rest and stay hydrated. I’m hoping to be back in my office again by tomorrow- since I don’t want to fall behind in my work- but we’ll see how it goes.
With my downtime today, I took the opportunity to go through my 8Tracks account, mending and re-uploading any broken links/songs that I’ve included in some of my playlists I’ve created throughout the past couple of years- so everything should be in working order again.
I also put together a Springtime playlist featuring some upbeat (and dreamy, since I like to keep it balanced,) songs I’ve been listening to as of late as I prepare to come out of hibernation. There’s some Bleachers, some Jenny Lewis, a little bit of BØRNS and Lucius- among others. I hope anyone who gives it a listen enjoys it!
And people say you can’t be productive during a sick day!
I can’t even put into words how wonderful it feels to be able to shed my jackets and sweaters and enjoy perfect temperatures (and a recent streak of sunshine!) in my floral dresses or a comfortable pair of flats instead of my usual boots. The pollen? Not nearly as enjoyable- but it hasn’t stopped me from rolling my windows down whenever and wherever I’m driving and enjoying the breeze blowing through my hair while I listen to music.
I compiled this little playlist of songs, some slow and dreamy, others more upbeat and dance-able, but each of them feel perfect for Springtime- and I hope anyone who gives it a listen enjoys it as much as I do!
