Happy TunesDay: Collection 62

Ya girl’s back.

For real.  At least for another week.

It’s been a legitimate mess trying to get my life organized again, but I finally had a bit of time to whip out a new TunesDay mix.

I have to say, this heat wave in the ‘burgh is making me miss California. At least it’s not humid there. I will be sitting and sweating alone in my room this whole week with only this cool playlist to keep my body temperature regulated.

xoxo.

Happy TunesDay: Collection 57

This week’s playlist is a medley of pop and dance pop beats with feisty womxn singers.

It starts out a little more mellow, but the playlist works its way up in energy, then back down, then up again, just like how my mood is right now.

I woke up early, was a bit tired, got energized from starting my day with some pals, and now am feeling a bit slow…but it’s definitely because of the benadryl I took. My allergies are going a little haywire today, but hopefully my energy will pick up because I’m conducting two interviews for my podcast today! YAY! So exciting.

In the meantime, this playlist will keep me from falling into a deep, allergy meds-induced slumber.

Happy listening, folks!

Happy Tuesday: Collection 56

Another TunesDay is here.  It feels like I blinked and a whole week already passed.

My podcast launch was successful, though I’m constantly reminded my friends are always 1.35 hours late to anything I ever plan.  Next time I need to start things later than I anticipate!

Anyway, thanks to everyone who listened to & supported Seats At The Table so far.

Sessions will be posted bi-weekly, so nothing new will but up tomorrow, but next Wednesday, expect to hear an awesome new podcast!

For today’s TunesDay, I’m mentally preparing myself to see The 1975 with my dear pal, Zareen… granted the concert is still a couple of weeks away, but I always like being prepared.  So, I put together a mellow, soft rock/pop playlist with some of their songs to help me recharge while I drive around in my car.

Hope you have a lovely week, friends!

Happy TunesDay: Collection 55

This week has kept me insanely busy, but that’s nothing really new.

Today, my friend, Lili, invited me onto her radio show, Where’s The Chase? It’s a fun talk show about dating and relationships–why she asked me on again…I have no idea.  But, it’ll be cool to chat about how I relate to friends in relationships and me being ready for a serious relationship (cue the shock & awe).  Her show is on KUCI 88.9FM for those in Orange County.  But, you can listen online here.  I’ll be on from 4-4:30PM PST!

And in other news…

Tomorrow, I am launching my podcast, Seats At The Table!! I am way super excited to finally be sharing this with everyone.  But, in preparation for the launch, I decided to have an impromptu launch party at the behest of my friend, Meymuna.  So, I’ve been frantically cleaning my apartment and rearranging furniture, because of course that’s a great idea the day before you’re hosting people at your apartment.

It’s become an intensive spring cleaning of sorts, but it feels good to dust and physically clean the clutter out of my life.

I’ve lived in this place for about two years, and I’m just finally getting around to making it home-y for myself…three months before I’m leaving California.  I have the worst timing, but better late than never, right?

Anyway, I hope that you can tune in tomorrow to Seats At The Table.  It’ll be available on Soundcloud and I’ll launch on iTunes in the next couple of weeks after I have more sessions uploaded.

And now, to the music, which is probably why you came here in the first place.

This week’s playlist is a soothing mix that lowers my heart rate, because to be honest, my mind is moving so quickly and I need to take some time for myself to be present and focused.

What are some songs that help you relax?

Sending you all peace and inner calm,
Christina

Okay.

Before you get all dramatic and say, “Christina, what happened to TunesDay? You left me hanging for two whole weeks!” Let me explain.

I HAD IT ALL PLANNED OUT.  I set up a whole month of TunesDay Takeovers. But, unfortunately it didn’t pan out.

This is what happens when I give people very loose guidelines and don’t follow-up with them.

So, from the bottom of my heart, I profusely apologize to the approximately 8 people who listen to my playlists on a regular basis.

I’m back in the US of A, so you can count on me to crank out some hip n’ happenin’ playlists. For those interested, I’ll probably write a good, old reflection about my time abroad in Greece, but until then, let your petite lil’ ears feast on this week’s playlist.

Happy TunesDay: Collection 47

This week’s set is a medley of folksy, pop, mixed-up goodness.

I forgot how calming folk and acoustic music can be.  It has been a little while since I actually listened to this kind of music, but it’s been nice to revisit a genre of music that I sort of neglected in the past year.

I find it so interesting to see what types of music we like over the course of our lives.  It’s pretty much a representation of what’s going on in our lives and reflects our outlook.  I’m going to do my best to revisit all the music I’ve loved over the last several years.

Sending you relaxing and introspective vibes,
Christina

Happy TunesDay: Collection 46

Happy TunesDay!

This week’s set is a melding of happy, upbeat, synthpoppy goodness.  Some are new tunes I’ve just stumbled upon and some have been sitting in my “likes” portion of Soundcloud, waiting for their time to shine.  I thought I’d dust some of them off and put them into a little list for your lovely ears!

What are some songs you keep coming back to even if you first heard them years ago?
