Today I am doing something differently. For months I have been struggling with posting content on the the Fridays that made sense. I always had it saved for fashion posts, but as my tastes have changed I felt less and less inspired and so I started filling it with more beauty content. That also didn’t feel right. So I had a bit of a brainstorm and have decided to dub Fridays: Free for all Fridays. This means that this is the day in the week where I will not post beauty content or a video, but do something a bit differently. And I thought, what better way to change things up than to bring back my oldest passion to the blog: music!Read more
Since October was one of the worst months for reading again this year, I figured than instead of a post about books, I could share some music with you again. The other week I finally went through my playlists and added tons of new songs, which inspired me to create a new Music ABC playlist. I made one a few years ago, but that was more than 2 years ago and was a playlist I made based on my all time favorite songs mostly. But I figured I could also share a playlist with some of my more recent favorites and some more all time favorites thrown in the mix. So that’s what this is, I hope you enjoy!
Music ABC 2.0

It’s been ages since I last posted a blog on music, but my love for music has never wavered. I have just felt greatly uninspired by what’s out there. I am still trying to find new music, but pickings are scarce and it feels like I have heard everything before. Which is why, recently, I have been going over some old favorites. And today I figured I could inform you of some of my favorite R&B tracks. A style of music I have not written much about, so it was about time I changed that. Here are 10 of my favorite R&B tracks.
Babyface – Never Keeping Secrets
It’s spring! And with that comes music! I selected 10 songs that completely give me that spring time feeling. Most of these I’ve already featured on here before, but it doesn’t hurt to share your favorites now does it?! Leave a comment down below with your favorite spring songs!
Janelle Monae – Dance Apocalyptic
A few weeks ago I posted a message on Facebook: please help me find new music. I live for new music and by new I mean stuff I have never heard before, that are not mainstream and more out of the box. I am that person who knows the bands in the tiny print on the festival announcements. Or as my friend posted: “I listen to bands that don’t even exist yet”. That is something I’ve done for years and when my SD Card crashed last fall, I figured that I would move on to Spotify. Now, 6 months later I’m seriously debating unsubscribing from the service and as of this week I’m back to using an SD card for playing music on the go.
Why I stopped using Spotify
This blog post was inspired by my recent commute. I listen to loads of music on a daily basis and sometimes, I come across song after song that I would love to sing along to no matter how out of tune it might be. Last Friday was one of those days that I had a string of songs coming on that I lipsynched along to all the way home. Here are some of my favorites.
Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes – I had the time of my Life
Last day of the month and you know what that means: music favorites! November 2017 will officially be the month I finally switched to Spotify. I will always love my analog and carry along music, but I cannot deny how easy it is to have all the music of the world available to you at just the click of a button. I have been mainly listening to playlists that are premade lately and not too much has been standing out yet. But I managed to select a few songs that I love nevertheless.
