Monthly Mixtape: Bleached Dogwoods and Beach Towels / Bev Cooks

We’re now entering the summer mixtape playlist songs-in-a-row-on-an-internet-platform era! And this one is exactly that. Every month I get embarrassingly excited about these mixtapes, and I hope you do, too. I always try to pick songs that make you feel something. And maybe it’s something long buried, like the way you feel when you hear […]

Okay this is the very last time I’ll do this but – yay, KU!! I had them going the ENTIRE WAY on my bracket and I feel like I’ve won an award. Do I get something? Money? A plaque? A sticker? Never mind. Your April mixtape! It’s divine. It’s upbeat without being obnoxious. It’s relaxed […]

FRRRRrrrrrrri ha-day-ya. Did you see Arkansas BEAT GONZAGA LAST NIGHT? Did you see that? They beat Gonzaga! FLOORED. It ruined my Final Four but I don’t even care because that’s amazing. Also I’ve been saying it like this the entire time: Gon-zah-ga. Like Julie Andrews I guess. And it’s Gon-ZAG (like zig zag)-ga. How is […]

This is what we’ll look like this time tomorrow. And then some. February! Do you ever find yourself thinking, “Okay first month is done, we’re okay, let’s keep nesting” when February hits? No? Just me? Really? I’m not the type to spiral into winter depression. It’s the perfect excuse to stay home and light candles […]

Despite the name of the mix and the photo below, this is actually a pretty cheerful playlist! It’s what we need. Look at that. Look at the peachy purple-y pinky sky. Marvelous, isn’t it? Sunrises like this aren’t often, so I desperately needed to show you. So, this mix! It’s seriously a good one. I […]

Happy November! Out of your candy coma just yet? This mixtape, the vibe of it has nothing really to do with the title. And to be fully transparent, I hadn’t planned on even sharing this playlist with you all. I started it sort of recently when I was craving a specific sound. THIS sound. Mostly […]

Time for tunez! I mean tunes. I mean toons. I mean tunes. Are we okay? I love October so much. To the naked eye, this photo looks like summer in a nutshell, I get it. Bare legs, chlorophyll overload, some pretty blooms tucked to the left. But it’s happening! October and all its brilliant glory […]
