Wow, has it been cold.

Word on the street is that we’re in for some “wintry mix” tonight.

This week I’ve been keeping warm and ignoring the cold by wearing extra soft, extra long warm crazy socks.  

Like everyone else, continuously dancing to this song…maybe in the shower.

Margaritas at El Mundo. Last night Andrew ordered the prickly pear and it was so good!

Thinking about this hot chocolate from my name is yeh

Reading. I’m on a roll. Currently reading these two:

Loving my new Sorel boots. I have been wanting Sorels for ages and my head about popped off when I found them discounted by 60% at Anthropologie…they had one pair left…which was my size. I had to.

I really should end this post because I’m working on it instead of meal planning/grocery listing for the week. So far, so good on that one..we’ll see how week two goes.

Stay warm!

Yes, I know the blog looks different again. I wasn’t 100% happy with the last look, so I think this is it. Thanks for your patience.

Back to work this morning. Let’s do it!

This song will indeed brighten your Monday…I can’t stop with it…Walk the Moon is so 80s and I love them for it.

 

 

 

best of 2014: music for yoga

Processed with VSCOcam with m5 preset

Instead of just posting about my favorite music of the year, I thought I’d go more specific: music for yoga practice.

I’m very picky about my yoga music. While it’s fine when I’m taking class at various studios, I’m not a huge fan of traditional yoga music when practicing by myself. I’ll admit it, I blast some pretty unconventional stuff. This was a a great year for yoga music. Here are some songs that I cannot stop blasting.

Below is a full playlist via Spotify that I will continue to update.

Sylvan Esso // Coffee

Broods // Four Walls

Coldplay // Magic

Mimicking Birds // Bloodlines

Alt-J // Hunger of the Pine

FKA Twigs // Two Weeks

Where do I even start?

This is both the easiest and most difficult post of the month. I could go on for an entire month on just this topic alone. Because I no longer “work out,” this has to be a yoga music playlist showcase.

First, there a few songs that have held up over time as the best to yoga to ever, in my opinion.

The Lime Tree // Trevor Hall

Intro // The XX

Colors // Amos Lee

Making yoga playlists is fun, but tough. The possibilities are endless, yet you feel stumped at the same time.

In honor of this post, I’ve made most of my Spotify playlists public. You can find 36 and counting 60 minute class playlists here. 

what’s on my playlist

imgp8139

As I’ve shared before, each season I keep a playlist on Spotify full of what I’m listening to at the moment. Everything I remotely like even just a little bit gets added to this list. It’s big and all over the place. Here’s Fall 2014:

Within that playlist, there is always a five or six song rotation that changes every three to five days. Here’s what’s on that list now:

Hozier // Sedated

Nothing but Thieves // Graveyard Whistling

Sam Palladio, Clare Bowen // When You Open Your Eyes

Walk the Moon // Shut Up and Dance 

Trevor Hall // Green Mountain State

And unfortunately I’m really digging the new Taylor Swift song that was released today. Dang…
