{mix tape} stay in november

mix tape november This month's mix tape would (and should have) been the soundtrack to this past weekend at home. Wake up, enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, plop onto the sofa, read a book, do some light chores, plop back onto the sofa, read some more....you get the picture. It's a little mellow and a little up beat, enjoy it as things wind down for the holiday season.

{mix tape} back in the day september

SEPT mix tape When Joe and I arrived in LA during our last visit and got into the rental car, we immediately tuned into KDAY 93.5. KDay plays all of the old school rap and hip hop songs that we grew up with and for me, it's all so quintessentially LA. Even if they're not all west coast artists, the vibe is there. I'm back in town so it was only fitting that I create my own mix! Some song versions are "explicit" so be warned in case you have little ears around. Though, I turned out alright...you know how we do ;)

{monthly mix tape} road nostalgia august

AUG Mixtape

I was a big-time commuter in LA before moving closer to work and public transportation options. While I can't say that I miss having a car, I do miss the long periods of time when it was just me and my music. There's something about driving that makes everything sound and feel better, isn't there? To satisfy my driving nostalgia I decided to create a playlist of songs from my college days to now that would make me smile, bob my head, and cheer me up even in the worst of traffic jams. That's why there's 17 tracks instead of the usual 10 ;)
