Sweet Beats // April 2016

Permission to completely girl-out for a minute? Christa and I are utterly in love with NBC’s Nashville. It’s just so juicy! We have no shame in it and want to share our adoration with the world.

That said, whenever we’re in the midst of a season, it always makes us wish we had some country flare to our blood. While we’ve never really been into modern radio country, other types can definitely hit home with us. Of course we love the folky stuff, but we’re also lovers of all things oldies and bluegrass. This month’s playlist wanders along the folk path, but if you’re in the mood for something a little more old school and twangy, check out this playlist from a couple of summers back.

Or give this month’s a listen here!

G&M will be reunited this Sunday to see Cheerleader (check out their band profile here), and we’re pretty pumped to meet up with a bunch of friends to cheer them on (ha, get it?). Christa will be visiting her brother at Roger Williams for family weekend, and Reg is going to be having a weekend of hostessing, with her old college from coming to visit on Saturday, and then Christa on Sunday and Monday. We’ll be wandering the streets of Boston on Monday, camera in hand – so hopefully we’ll have a post soon of our galavanting!

cct // Madewell’s sweater tips are much needed for this chilly sweater weather

rkv // Such a pretty Halloween face makeup idea!

cct // So I know that I just mentioned that it’s sweater weather, but I stumbled upon this drink and it’s beautiful and delicious looking, so I kind of want to make it now…

rkv // I’ve been super into watching scary things these days, so I was pretty pumped to see this list of the “25 Best Horror Movies Since The Shining

cct // I always wondered how people had such smooth looking faces back then! 

rkv // I’m a bit of an antsy person, so this list of ways to prep before public speaking

cct // I went to buy a ring on etsy the other day and I realized I didn’t exactly know what size that finger was (not one of my usual ring fingers I guess), and I remembered that Catbird has an amazing ring sizing cheat sheet that every girl should have!

rkv // The best way to store your salad greens so they keep longer

Sweet Beats // September 2014

Mostly, these playlists keep me company during my morning commute, which means easy listening. Not like, light 100.5 easy listening with Kenny G., but rather your indie guitar with soft vocal harmonies and such. I’m just a much more pleasant person in the morning if there’s calming music in my ears and a vanilla latte sprinkled with cinnamon in my hand. Is that so wrong? I didn’t think so.

So friends, if you too need a little soft musica in the morning, click here to listen on spotify.
