Soundtrack To My Month Of January - Track 13

o0o0o.. Track 13.. unlucky? I hope not!

Today I've chosen this track as it's my 3 year anniversary with my Beau. It's a song that gets me dancing and keeps me smiling.

Yes, she's making yet another appearance this month... I give you, Katy Perry - Hummingbird Heartbeat, enjoy!


Soundtrack To My Month Of January - Track 12

You'd be lying if you said you didn't love this song at one point in your life, and if you can honestly say that you've never loved it then.. well.. I'll be slightly embarrassed because I adore this song!

I give you, Counting Crows ft. Vanessa Carlton - Big Yellow Taxi, enjoy!


Gwen Stefani - Because She's Worth It!

I got to see this thanks to my sister and cocoperez. Gwen Stefani has joined L'Oreal Paris as the new face of their Infallible Le Rouge lip colour, which is perfect for her, or rather she is perfect for the advert campaign! In the background there is the classic Hollaback Girl, by Gwen herself.

Thought I'd share this with you, because I am a massive fan of hers and let's face it, she makes "because we're worth it" sound badass, take a peek!


Soundtrack To My Month Of January - Track 11

Another song from Katy Perry, I suppose I'm in love with her album Teenage Dream, this song really reminds me of a friend at the moment, I think she's going through this phase, so this one is for her. I give you, The One That Got Away, enjoy!


Soundtrack To My Month Of January - Track 10

One of my favourite artists of all time. I really respect her for what she does, how she does it, and the way she voices her opinions through her music. I often get emotional at her lyrics, and her songs always remind me of a point in my life which probably makes me feel the words she sings more. This song is no different. I think a lot of people can relate to this track. I give you, P!nk - Perfect, enjoy!




Soundtrack To My Month Of January - Track 9

This track is such a tune! I give you Jessie J - Do It Like A Dude, enjoy!


Soundtrack To My Month Of January - Track 8

I actually walked into my sister's room this morning and she was playing this, and I'd forgotten all about how much I love this track, and this band for that matter! I give you, The Offspring - I Want You Bad, enjoy!



Soundtrack To My Month Of January - Track 7

An old song I adore, I give you, No Doubt - Don't Speak, enjoy!


Soundtrack To My Month Of January - Track 6

Next up is a track I think is quite sweet, I give you, Michael Jackson & Akon - Hold My Hand, enjoy!



Soundtrack To My Month Of January - Track 5

Next up is a song from an artist who I think has a beautiful voice, I hope you appreciate this song as much as I do, I give you, Bruno Mars - Grenade, enjoy!


Soundtrack To My Month Of January - Track 4

Fourth up, now I've already warned you some artists might have more than one mention and this artist deserves another. This song I can't help but get up and dance to. I give you, Katy Perry - Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.), enjoy!


Soundtrack To My Month Of January - Track 3

Third up is a track by Kate Voegele, who I fell in love with thanks to One Tree Hill. I can really relate to this song sometimes, when the world's weight is on my shoulders I do feel like I, too, am simply 'just surviving', I give you, Sweet Silver Lining, enjoy!


Soundtrack To My Month Of January - Track 2

Second up is a track from Katy Perry, even though I've never felt like a plastic bag, I really do love this song, I give you, Firework, enjoy!


Soundtrack To My Month Of January - Track 1

Not going to lie to you guys, I've been busy with exams like I said I would be, so instead of doing Soundtrack To My Day, I figured I would do, Soundtrack To My Month. I've been listening to mainly albums from a few artists so I shall post up a few songs from the same artists, but their songs are totally worth listening to.

First up is.. possibly one of my favourite from Kings Of Leon's new album, I give you, Pyro, enjoy!

When I began compartmentalizing my ideas and goals in regards to writing, it was done so with the intent, knowledge, and support that I could theoretically write whatever the fuck I wanted to write, and not have to worry much about criticism because, in all respects, writing isn’t always done to convene the traits of the real identity of the author.
In fact, my High School English teacher, Mr. Duffy, always encouraged me to work on my scribe however I feel, and if people couldn’t accept what I presented in word, that it would be their loss, not mine. After researching and reading as much as possible of respected works with suggestive content, I came to the conclusion …

Happy Birthday Aaliyah

I'm hoping those of you reading this will remember her or at least know of her, and that those of you who were too young to remember her, have at least been told about her or heard one of her tracks. For those of you that don't know, she was known as the Princess of R&B, and today would have been her 32nd birthday.

When I was growing up she was one of my favourite artists and I remember the day I found out she had died. I was sitting in the same spot I am now, and my sister came in having heard it on the radio and told us - my mum was beside me. There was great hope for her, and it's a shame her eagerness cost her what would have been a remarkable life.

To commemorate her birth, life and career I think it's appropriate that one of her songs be my track of the day today. It's one of my all time favourites and it's a shame that it was after filming this video that she passed away but I'm grateful that the final one, was a good one.

Ladies and gentlemen, I gi…

XXMI

At the end of the year or at the start of a new one it’s expected that one must reflect on the year that has past and focus on how they’ll improve on themselves or their lives. I wish I could say I’m any different but I like to take this time to think and reflect too.

I know this might sound like a get out clause but I think my year will really start at the beginning of February. You see, as a university student, my life revolves around the academic year and semesters. My second semester of my second year will start at the end of January. Until then I’ll mainly keep doing what I’m doing as I have exams to revise for and making any giant pledges would be depressing as I know I wouldn’t be able to keep them.

I’ve had an amazing year, it’s gone by too quickly and I wish I savoured some of the moments more, but one shouldn’t dwell on the past. I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with my friends - making new friends, and making stronger bonds with old friends. I enjoyed the result I got at th…
