One of the craziest things to me about Christmas is that we play the same Christmas songs over and over and over every year. It’s hard for artists to release their own new songs because we so rarely accept them. Some of my favorite Christmas songs are the ones we don’t hear on the radio 1000 times per day over the holidays. It is my hope to introduce you to some of these songs. Who knows, maybe you’ll find your new favorite? Christmas Lights – Coldplay This is arguably my favorite non-traditional Christmas song. Coldplay brings you the perfect balance of everything that’s needed in a beautiful Christmas melody! The First Noel (feat. Owl City) – tobyMac I have always loved singing this song in church and this version is great! Owl City and tobyMac, what could be better? Ho Ho Hopefully – The Maine This song is tied with Christmas Lights. I love The Maine’s whole Christmas album, you should definitely check it out! The Man With The Bag – Jessie J Jessie J KILLS this version. I absolutely love her voice! Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays – *NSYNC I couldn’t NOT put this song on here. Come on. Mistletoe – Colbie Caillat I… View Post

It’s been a while since I’ve shared some of my favorite music here on the blog. Music is such an integral part of my day. I listen to it whenever I have a free moment, and it’s also key component of whether I feel good or bad about a workout. I feel so much more motivated to go to the gym when I have a good playlist of songs to listen to while I’m there. A good workout playlist should pump you up and make you feel like you can do anything! The songs on my workout playlist are always changing, but I wanted to share with you all my top 5 workout playlist songs. On My Mind by Ellie Goulding This song got me so pumped the other day that I pushed myself to run for longer than I ever have before! Pretty much any song by Fetty Wap ‘Nuff said. My favorite song by Fetty at the moment is Again. He’s killin’ the game lately! Scavenger by Finish Ticket Finish Ticket opened for Twenty One Pilots when I saw them a few weeks ago and I have immediately become obsessed with them. This song is great and I love when it comes… View Post

  I love music. I’ve been singing since I could talk (everyone says that, but it’s true!) and I’ve learned how to play a few instruments in my lifetime (piano, clarinet, flute, and guitar… in that order). I’ve also been in many musicals, concerts, song fests, county choirs, and I even had the opportunity to sing abroad in Paris and London with my HS choir! Now that I’m in college, however, it’s hard for me to find time to sing along to anything but my Spotify playlists. I’m obsessed with Spotify. I have the student discount so it’s about $5 per month and it gives me access to SO MANY SONGS. I also love Spotify because of how easy it is to make playlists. I love playlists. I love listening to other people’s playlists. I have a playlist for practically every occasion you could imagine. Because I’m constantly listening to music, I’m always coming across new songs that I love and want to share with the whole world. Well, it’d be pretty hard for little old me to share a song with the whole world BUT I can share the songs I love with all of you! Right now I’m… View Post
