Day 18: The soundtrack to my life // vol. 2017

23 Dec 2017 mixtapes, year summaries

Music is not everything, but it is pretty freaking important. At least in my life, lovelies. What about in yours? Are you dependent upon music to set the mood, give you good vibes, express your emotions, and create feelings of nostalgia + connection? I certainly use tunes to mark and make memories. And, I do it by creating an insane amount of playlists + racking up endless hours of listening to music. At the end of the year, it isRead More

Being present. Day 2: How not to start your (Monday) morning

4 Dec 2017 mixtapes

I almost seriously overslept this morning. You’d think that after a cozy, slow weekend at home, I’d be all rested up, but apparently I turned off my alarm at 5:40 and dropped back into a deep sleep. I blame it on the super full moon. She had me all messed up all night long. In any case, I woke with a start at 6:15 and jumped out of bed. Not at all the most awesome way to start a MondayRead More

The only holiday playlist that you’ll ever need

1 Dec 2017 mixtapes

December is here. And I am pumped. Finally it’s time to bring out the Christmas music + just let it loop and shuffle and play from now until the New Year. Yep. I am that person. I think it has something to with the fact that I live in another country from where I grew up. It’s a nostalgia thing.

And that was not at all how I expected things to go. You see, I suddenly + unexpectedly found myself on vacation a few days earlier than I had planned! So, now I am in full-time vacation mode – and it feels amazing! AndRead More

Easing into summer one day at a time: Songs for days 177 – 183

2 Jul 2017 mixtapes

Summer is settling in now. And I am slowing down. Majorly. Easing into summer is so much better for me than an abrupt switch from a full-speed ahead work week to full-on vacation mode. Instead, slowly moving from busy-ness, stress, and intensity towards a calm, relaxing few weeks at work to 5 weeks of vacation is the perfect step-down balance for me. It’s actually like stretching out the vacation season over even more weeks than usual. This is the secondRead More
