Mixtape Monday v1

Nothing I love more than a great playlist to get through the day. I had a couple nightmares last night- you know, the kind where you wake up at 4 AM in an absolute panic, assuming that your dream was actually real life. Lucky for me, it was a dream. Still, nights like last night make the whole next day all weird- like there's this nightmare cloud following me around. So instead of dwelling on this funk, I'm determined to shake it off. Nothing helps me get out of a mood quicker than music. Enter: the mixtape series. Every Monday, you can look forward to a new curated mixtape of my favorite music to help get you through the toughest day of the week. Enjoy :)

  1. This is pretty much EXACTLY the playlist I make to get my study on this morning, weird!

  2. These are awesome! I haven't heard of any of these bands so that's neat :] Ugh and I hear you about dreams - I went through a weird period after I got back from Europe where I would have stress dreams that I would then not remember...I would wake up feeling anxious and scared but I wouldn't know why! It would take me like half the day to remember that I had had a dream, but I never remembered any strange. Music helps though!

  3. Love all of these! I'm back in England so I never listen to the radio, so I love everyone's Music Monday series! They're keeping me in the loop!

  4. I will be adding all of these to my ipod! Love them all! Thankyou xx

  5. THANK YOU!! I am constantly on the hunt for good music that I love (my Pandora station is having an identity crisis) and these songs are so EXCELLENT! Thank you!!


Thank you for taking the time to comment! It's lovely hearing from you :)
