Playlist: Weekend in Vegas

I made this playlist for last weekend’s girls trip to Vegas.  Now that I’m back home with a bad case of post-vaca blues, I find myself playing these songs on repeat, daydreaming of our pool party days and club-hopping nights. A mix of country and hip hop, they’re all perfect “windows down, care-free cruising” jams. Especially now that (fingers crossed) the warmer weather is here to stay!

 

Needless to say, the 9 of us (4 girlfriends from high school and 4 from college) had an absolute BLAST and we’re already planning next year’s destination…

Update: Playlist Fundraiser

With nearly a week left until my half, my runs are tapering off and it’s time to work out all the details. One thing I don’t have to worry about is putting together the perfect race day playlist. I asked my friends and family to do it for me and support Dana Farber Cancer Institute in the process. And boy, did they step up to the challenge!

On the list are some favorite go-to running songs, some middle school throwbacks (appropriate since I’ll be running past my middle, elementary and high schools), songs that will remind me of particular memories and probably make me laugh out loud, and some new songs I haven’t heard before. It’s quite the eclectic mix – rap, country, dance, pop and indie – and will definitely keep me distracted as I run, thinking about what song could be next.

Thank you soo much to everyone that donated. The support of the person behind each song will hopefully be just the motivation I need to keep going all 13.1! Most importantly, we already raised over $400 for Dana Farber. And it’s not too late to add a song to the list!

On Repeat: Where the Wind Blows

I know I’m late to the game but I finally saw Great Gatsby – and loved it. I know it got some slack for the modern soundtrack and over the top visuals, but I dug it. I’m a sucker for anything 1920’s and Gatsby was one of the only books in high school I didn’t Sparknote. Add in Leo, who can do no wrong in my eyes (going on a 15 year obsession here) and top it off with some sick beats  – done deal.

Currently have this jam on repeat:
