When I find new music I put them at the top of a huge, ever-growing list and every month or so, I download n new music and name it after some occasion that’s coming up.
Over winter break last year, my family went to the Bahamas, and this is the playlist that I created just before we left. No particular reason why; I didn’t search and find these songs to fit the occasion. These were just the songs that I played over our stay there and everytime I bring the playlist back, I’m reminded of our awesome vacation.
It starts out with blasting music for a sun party, and gradually fades into really chill, really mellow music for late nights in the tropics.
A whirlwind mix of party alone, party together EDM songs, featuring trap, dubstep, chillstep, and really, really incredible remixes. You can’t find this stuff on Spotify…
Quality speakers/headphones recommended.

Literally just love songs.

Last year I started making playlists for each month to capture all the feelings and vibes that time of year gave me; Catherine and I have decided to include them on her blog. So without further ado, here is the first installment of the Monthly Listening Club, “December”.
Everyone hates on materialists, but a bubble bath is one aspect of a materialist’s obsessions that I promise will only benefit you. Not that everyone should take bubble baths every day, but taking a bubble bath just once will change your life…though indirectly, probably. Continue reading
