Monday’s Music 29 // Ultimate Jogging Playlist

June 5, 2017

Happy Monday and welcome to another edition of Monday’s Music! It’s been forever since I’ve shared a Monday’s Music playlist so I thought “hey, there’s no time like the present!”. I always have such a blast sharing different playlists (I think my all-time favorites were my Disney Playlists) and hearing/reading about some of your favorite songs as well (don’t forget to comment down below some of your favorite workout tunes!). It’s such a fun way to discover new music! I was going through a few of my older Monday’s Music playlists and realized that around this time last year I shared my 2016 workout playlist. Although I still do listen to a lot of those songs (and they’re still on my jogging/workout playlist), I’ve updated that playlist quite a bit since then. Here are some of my favorite “current” (meaning these songs, with the expectation of the Hamilton soundtrack, were released this year) workout songs:Ultimate Jogging Workout Playlist Continue reading

Monday’s Music 28 // Disney Revival Playlist

November 21, 2016

Happy Monday and welcome to another edition of Monday’s Music! I’m so excited because today (well, tonight) I’m attending an advance screening of Disney’s Moana! Ever since I saw a special sneak peek of Moana at Disneyland last month, I’ve been counting down the days until the film is released (it just looks so good!). In fact, I’ve been listening to the soundtrack on repeat for the last few days. If you’ve been following this blog for a while then you already know how much I love Lin-Manuel Miranda (and Hamilton) and he really nailed it with this soundtrack! Speaking of Disney soundtracks, I thought today would be the perfect time to share another Disney Playlist. So far I’ve shared Disney playlists for the Disney Golden AgeDisney Pre-Renaissance, the Disney Renaissance and the underrated (and frequently forgotten) Disney Post-Renaissance. Today’s Disney Playlist is dedicated to the Disney Revival era (i.e 2009 – the present).Disney Playlist Continue reading

Monday’s Music 27 // Ultimate Halloween Playlist

October 10, 2016

Happy Monday and welcome to another edition of Monday’s Music! I know it’s been a while since the last Monday’s Music (almost three months, yikes!) and I know I ALWAYS say I’m going to do more Monday’s Music Playlists but I promise I DO plan on turning this back into a biweekly feature again (because I really do LOVE coming up with themed playlists!). Since Halloween is exactly three weeks away, I thought it would be fun to share my “Ultimate Halloween Playlist!” This “Ultimate Halloween Playlist” consists of the nine songs that never fail to remind me of Halloween.Ultimate Halloween Playlist Continue reading

Monday’s Music 26 // Ultimate Coldplay Playlist

July 18, 2016

Happy Monday and welcome to another edition of Monday’s Music! I’m so EXCITED because this weekend (Sunday) I’m seeing my FAVORITE band, Coldplay, in concert! Words can’t describe how happy I am. Coldplay has been my favorite band since I was seven years old (so we’re talking about a seventeen year commitment here!). Since I’m (FINALLY) seeing Coldplay this weekend, I thought it would be fun to share my “Ultimate Coldplay Playlist!” This “Ultimate Coldplay Playlist” consists of 27 of my pesonal favorite Coldplay songs but if I’m being honest, EVERY song from ParachutesA Rush of Blood to the HeadX&YViva la Vida or Death and All His Friends and Mylo Xyloto is AMAZING (no offense Ghost Stories or A Head Full of Dreams but you were kind of slacking!).Coldplay Playlist Continue reading

Monday’s Music 25 // 2016 Workout Playlist

July 4, 2016

Monday's MusicHappy Fourth of July and welcome to another edition of Monday’s Music! I know it’s been a while since the last Monday’s Music (almost three months, yikes!) but let me explain. For a while now, I’ve been feeling a little uninspired when it comes to these posts. Not because I’ve stopped wanting to come up with different playlists (I LOVE coming up with these themed playlists) but because I’ve been trying to come up with fun new ways to share these playlists with you all. When I first started my Monday’s Music posts (back in 2013), I would simply share nine songs that went along with a certain theme (i.e favorite albums, favorite 80s songs, etc). Then as time went on, I started sharing little fun facts about each song and why I choose each song for that particular playlist. Still, I felt like something else was missing for these posts — a cute graphic to go along with them! After spending a few weeks trying to come up with a better way to present these playlists, I think I finally found something I like. Now, instead of sharing just album covers, each Monday’s Music playlist with come with a fun little mixtape inspired graphic (yay!).  Continue reading
