Hey daydreamers! I’m alive! Sorry that I disappeared for a few weeks! I have been EXTREMELY busy for the past month or so. Between school, cheer, friends, and ballet (especially with Nutcracker coming up, I’m at the studio 7 days a week), I’ve had almost no time to blog. I might not be able to be as consistent with blogging as I was in the summer, since free time = nonexistent right now. 😛
For today’s post, I thought it would be fun to share my playlist of the month for October – it’s full of cozy vibes and some current favorite songs, so I’m super happy with it! – as well as some fun fall aesthetics and a mini life update to catch up with you guys. Let’s get into it! All of these photos are from Pinterest.
Hey daydreamers! I’ve been so excited to do a post like this, because I always make a summer playlist the second school is over In this case, my best friend and I made it over FaceTime before school was even out yet. 😛 I also made a little collage from Pinterest like I’ve done in my other playlist posts for the *summer vibes*.
Let’s get into it! These photos are from Pinterest unless I say otherwise.
Hey daydreamers! Can you believe that it’s March already?? A year ago this month, the world shut down, which is crazy to think about how everything’s been going on for so long. I had kind of a slump when it came to covid last month, but it feels like things are looking up now, which is super exciting.
Back in January I did a similar post to this where I shared a playlist filled with some of my favorite songs at the moment and a collage that matched the mood/aesthetic of the month and playlist. I liked that post so much that I ending up making playlists for February and March too! I thought I’d share the March playlist for this week’s post, along with an aesthetic collage that reflects the transition from winter to spring and contains a little motivation for your weekend. 🙂
I actually use Apple Music for listening to music, but a follower had an awesome idea to create a Spotify account to share the playlists so I don’t expose my Apple ID! So I kidnapped my mom’s Spotify account (with permission lol), so y’all can listen to the playlist on there. Oh, and I don’t own any of these pictures: they’re all from Pinterest. Let’s get into it!
I know that I literally say this in every single post, but this post was seriously so fun to make! It was super relaxing to curate the collage, and I’m lowkey obsessed with this playlist. Let me know some of your current favorite songs, because I listen to my monthly playlists 24/7 and love making them longer with new music I haven’t heard before!
Also, if you want to save any of these pins, check out my (recently updated) Pinterest account! Is anyone else excited about the new month?
THIS WEEK’S SHOUTOUT GOES TO Maggie Bryan from the nightingale! Her blog is amazing and she came up with the awesome idea to make a spotify playlist. Thank you so much for commenting!
What do you think of the playlist? Excited for the new month? Have you listened to any of these songs? Any music recommendations?
PS – I almost forgot, I turned the collage into a phone wallpaper as well! Feel free to use these on your phone but please give credit if you share. Thanks!
Hey daydreamers! Before the regularly scheduled post, I have a few super fast announcements to make. 🙂
First, if you’re in the reader, I redesigned the blog a little bit! I thought it would be fun to freshen up the fonts and graphics a lil’ bit for 2021, and I’m super happy with it! If you’re in the reader, you can click here to check it out 😉 Also, I redid my Pinterest account to match the new blog design, so make sure you’re following that as well.
I also thought it would be fun to do a follower shoutout at the end of each post, so I’ll be picking someone from the comments of last week’s post to link to their blog or mention their name! Okay, props to you if you actually read that, and now we’ll get into the post XD.
Hey daydreamers! Ahhh, how is it possible that we’re already halfway through Blogmas?! I can’t believe we’re so close to Christmas! This post isn’t very Christmas-y, but I hope you enjoy it anyway 🙂
I’ve been a Taylor Swift fan since, like, forever, and like everyone else, I was so surprised when she dropped Evermore last week! I thought it would be fun to listen to each song and share my thoughts on every one. This isn’t my first time listening to it (haha, I’ve listened to it a ton!) but this will be interesting! I’m also listening to the clean version, and I’m going to do the first few songs today and the rest tomorrow. Let’s get into it!
“life was a willow and it bent right to your wind…”
This one is definitely a standout on the album, and I really like this one! It’s sleepy and mysterious, just like a willow tree. I didn’t really like the music video, but I loved this song and it keeps getting stuck in my head haha. It does get a bit repetitive at the end, but the melody is so beautiful it definitely makes up for it! This one might be my favorite.
“because i dropped your hand while dancing / left you out there standing / crestfallen on the landing / champagne problems”
I thought I wouldn’t like this one (mainly because the title included champagne), but this one’s giving me this is me trying vibes. The piano melody is really simple but pretty, and I like how the lyrics tell a vivid story. I really like the bridge: “but you’ll find the real thing instead / she’ll patch up your tapestry that i shred.” At first I was confused what it meant, but I read something that it was about a relationship where one is planning to end it and one brought a ring. This one isn’t my favorite, but it’s a really cool song that I liked a lot.
“i don’t like that falling feels like flying ’till the bone crush / everybody wants you / but i don’t like a gold rush.”
This one kind of sounds the same as the other ones, but it’s; a little more upbeat. I really like the lyrics to this one, and it’s pretty catchy! I like the nod to her other album: “my mind turns your life into folklore”. This one was my favorite for a little bit, but it keeps changing haha.
’tis the [darn] season
“and wonder about the only soul who can tell which smiles I’m faking / and the heart i know i’m breaking is my own.“
Okay, this one is one of my least favorites just because it has a word I don’t like in the title, and it’s a little bit mature. Most of the time I skip this one, but it’s actually really catchy haha. It’s about the same girl from a later song, dorothea, which I didn’t make that connection before and now it all makes sense, lol!
“tell me I’ve got it wrong somehow / i know my love should be celebrated / but you tolerate it.”
As all Taylor Swift fans know, track 5 is always the most vulnerable song on the album, and this one is no exception. This song is really beautiful, yet sad and melancholy, about giving someone unconditional love but all they do in return is tolerate it. The last part is my favorite, when she starts wondering about what would happen if she left the relationship, but it’s really sad when she ultimately doesn’t. This one’s kind of a downer to listen to, but it tells one of the best stories for sure!
no body, no crime
“i think he did it, but i just can’t prove it…“
Okay, when I first listened to this song, I did NOT like it. I thought it was really weird, and was super confused about what it was. I still don’t like this one that much, but it’s kind of growing on me. My mom likes it because it tells a story like an old country song, and I kind of agree. Still not my favorite, but I like it a little better than before as I”m listening to it before.
“there’ll be happiness after you / but there was happiness because of you / both of these things can be true.”
This is another one that I’m not the biggest fan of. Although the lyrics are pretty cool, the melody is kind of boring, and the background music is really sleepy. It’s the kind of song that you turn on and walk away from and do something else. The line “when a good man hurts you / and you know you hurt him too” is really good. This one is also pretty long.
“hey dorothea, do you ever stop and think about me?”
I like this one! It’s got a fun, playful tune that reminds me a lot of Betty. Like I said above, it’s about the same girl in ’tis the [darn] season, and it’s not my favorite but not my least favorite. 😀My favorite part is “It’s never too late to come back to my side / the stars in your eyes / shined brighter in Tupelo / and if you’re ever tired of being known for who you know / you know, you’ll always know me.”
That’s all I’m going to be reacting to today! I hope that this was fun to read, and maybe if you haven’t listened to evermore yet, this inspired you to. I can’t wait for Part 2, I’ll see you tomorrow!
Have you listened to evermore? Which one do you like better, evermore or folklore? What’s your favorite Taylor Swift album? Do you listen to her?
