My Favorite Love Songs…

Posted in happyness, Love, music, playlist, rant, sadface, The Holidays on 02/14/2011 by asante

Yes folks, it’s that time of year again. When everyone you know is either cuddling up to the one they love or really like, or cursing this ill-begotten red and pink holiday.

Valentine’s day :)

I’ve spent the majority being mildly (ok more than mildly…) bitter at the entire concept of this day, but with a glass of wine in my system, I’m ready to be a bit more civil. I’ll admit, my first single V-Day in 4 years was awfully strange. You know how you don’t notice certain things in others until you don’t have them? Yeah well it seemed like EVERYONE was getting flowers or obnoxious balloons or surprise gifts. Like, everywhere. *vomit*.

I think the low point of this day was when an aging hobo asked me to be his Valentine. Talk about rock bottom. lol. #singlelife.

Anyways, back to the point, where was I?…. Right, love songs. Most days of the year, I’m perfectly optimistic about the concept of love, and I am a big fan of great love songs. So below (after the cut) are some of my favorites, and if you’re late on the boat and haven’t put together a playlist for your special someone or other, hope this helps. Celebrate the Love :)

….or if you’re still bitter, holler at my good friend Modi for his Singles Awareness Day Mixtape #3, which is a great ode to those of us without someone to snuggle with tonight. (Or check him out anyways, he’s mad talented!)

Anyways, Happy Valentine’s Day, folks. I’m off for a much deserved bubble bath. And to refill my glass. lol.

despite my slightly gloomy mood, as always…

Hey blogfriends!

It’s officially “Cuffing Season” folks. lol. Getchu a piece!!!

It’s that time of year when everybody wants a boo-piece to keep them warm through these chilly winter months (and probably to buy them something nice come ChristmaHannuKwanzaaKah). Can’t hate. Do I have one? Not so much, at the moment. lol. But, for those of you that do, I’m here to help facilitate your boo-loving moments.

Y’all who read regularly or who know me well are fully aware that I LOVE music. It gets me through life, and in a lot of ways it’s just EVERYTHING to me, lol. Music is a great way to set the mood with you and your seasonal boo-slice. So here’s my playlist of songs that will make you want to cuddle juuuuust a little bit closer this winter. All aboard for a list of  lazy, soulful, and sultry tunes. Hope y’all like it, and feel free to suggest any great songs I may have missed!

Summertime Tunes

Posted in happyness, Life, music, playlist, summertime on 06/30/2010 by asante

Hey y’all!

So I don’t know about you all, but as crazy as this Atlanta heat can be, I’ve been finding every available opportunity to put my sunroof and super-big sunglasses to use….

I love-Love-LOVE sunlight. I really think I may have been some sort of plant in another life… I definitely get an energy boost in the sunshine.

(SIDENOTE: Seriously, Evolution, photosynthesis definitely should have been one of those things we got to keep. Oops, my nerd is showing… lol)

Anyways, let me stop rambling off topic. The point of this post was for me to share some of my favorite songs to blast in the car on one of those awesome, beautiful, top-down/windows open sunshiney days. You all know the type of song I’m talking about. Great beat, lyrics you can’t help but sing along to, the type of tunes that have you bouncing around in the driver’s seat looking like a total dork on the highway… Oh wait… maybe that’s just me. lol. Here’s some of my tops, feel free to add your own :)

Check out the list after the cut.
