Christmas is right around the corner and although I won’t be shaking up festive drinks or making fancy appetizers for friends this year, I’m still going to imagine the party that will be going down next year, complete with this Christmas cocktail party playlist blaring through the speakers! And, until then, I’m going to dance around in my sweatpants instead!
Fall is one of my very favorite times to get in the car, roll down the windows and drive. Either toward a fun destination for a weekend road trip, or just to see the leaves changing colors and to take in the crisp fall air in your own neighborhood. (It also usually involves me tracking down the nearest apple cider donuts). This year, more than ever, lots of people are forced to vacation closer to home, which means more time in the car than usual. One of the ways I like to make the time pass on a long trip is with good music! So today I’m sharing a fun and easy weekend road trip playlist full of tunes that are perfect to listen to out on the open road! [Read more…]
I’ve officially been working from home for two full weeks now and my company is set to stay home for at least another month. (Thanks Corona!) In the beginning, I was allll about working from home. Saving time on my morning commute, strolling down to my desk in pj’s, and happy hours whenever I felt like it. And while working from home absolutely does have it’s perks (like those above), it also sucks feeling like you’re stuck inside sitting and staring at a computer all day. Lately I’ve been trying to find ways to spend the hours after work and during my make-shift “lunch breaks” to get up and get active, which totally helps to keep my mood lifted. One thing that helps? Good music! Today I’m sharing something I put together to inspire you guys to get active too. This get up and move playlist is filled to the brim with songs that always seem to inspire bad dance moves and lip sync performances of the best kind.
So grab your dancing shoes (or cozy slippers, like the ones I’ve been living in), get up and move! [Read more…]
Some of you may have snow already (Utah, I’m talking to you…), but here in North Carolina it’s finally starting to feel like fall. The leaves on the trees are changing colors and I’ve been loving the sound of the leaves crunching under my feet when I take Sophie for a walk. The mornings are crisp and cool and I feel like it makes me appreciate my morning coffee just a little bit more. If you’re craving a little bit more “fall” in your life, and you haven’t already jumped full swing onto the Christmas music bandwagon, I’m sharing the perfect cozy fall playlist today that will want to make you curl up in a blanket, sip something warm, and relax. (Watching the snow or the rain fall while listening is an added bonus).
We’ve officially hit the last month of Summer and while everyone else is prepping for back to school and fall activities, I’m over here trying to squeeze every last drop out of these warm days before they’re gone. And guess what…?! You STILL have time to throw that epic summer BBQ that you never got around to yet. I promise. I have a few more summer inspired posts that I’ll be sharing with you guys next week, but today, I feel like we should focus on one of the important details for your outdoor shindig…the playlist! This printable Summer BBQ playlist is a retro rock montage with all of the greats making an appearance. It’s going to bring you back to your younger days, or you’ll become a new fan if you haven’t heard these songs before. If that’s the case, I’ll just politely excuse myself now and we can pretend I didn’t just age myself with this download.
After an extended Thanksgiving break (which is exactly what this girl needed!), I’m back just in time for the Christmas and holiday season! After everything that I’ve posted for the holidays before, did you guys really think that I would let December pass by without a printable Christmas movie list?! That’s a definite NO.
This week, I’m tackling a lot of those dreaded Thanksgiving hosting questions, and today is no exception. You’ve planned the menu, designed a tablescape to impress everyone in the family, and have the liquor cabinet stocked, but what about the playlist? Have you given any thought about what to turn on in the background while you’re enjoying all of that other Thanksgiving goodness? If not, I’ve got you covered! I’m sharing a printable Thankgiving dinner playlist that is a jazzy retro turkey dinner dream. (Yes, I totally just described a playlist that way).
This playlist features the classics like Ella Fitzgerald, Mel Torme, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, and so many more. It’s a classic. Just trust me on this one guys.
Anyone that knows me, knows that I take holidays very seriously. And creating a must watch movie playlist is ALWAYS on the agenda. There are only 31 days to celebrate my favorite holiday and you can bet that I’m taking FULL advantage of that. I cram as many Halloween themed movies into the month of October as possible. One movie, each night, all October long. Think you’re up for the challenge? I’m sharing my printable halloween movie list with you guys this year and trust me, it’s a good one! 😉
