Charli XCX

I was never a boy crazy kid growing up. I was not a subscriber to Teen Beat nor did I have JTT posters adorning my walls. I did fancy Ryder Strong, I just didn't overly express it all over my trapper keeper. However, in my adulthood, I could spend hours on a Sunday going down a deep rabbit hole of googling photos of my main squeeze Jake Gyllenhaal. Anytime I see his face in a magazine, I stop dead in my tracks and swoon.

When I recently saw the video for Charli XCX's "Boys" it made me nostalgic for my early 20s and giddy at my first discovery of Gyllenhaal. The song is straight bumble gum pop and the video is chalked full of your favorite musical hotties, dips on Riz Ahmed and Ezra Koenig. You can't help but blush at the sight of all of these artists, even buzzfeed put out article ranking then all.

 It's the new digital version of JTT. He just adorns your computer wallpaper instead of your childhood bedroom. Check it out below and swoon for yourself.

Summer 2017 Playlist

I can't believe we are more than half way through the month of July. I know I say this every year, but where does the Summer go? Before I know it, it will be my birthday. But before we jump to another year older, can we talk about the abundance of amazing albums and singles that have dropped this Summer. It seems like every Friday, the music industry is gifting us with joyous sounding gifts and I can't seem to get enough. From Bleachers to Lorde, to Haim, the 2017 Grammy judges are going to have a tough time picking their favorite contenders.

Check out my Summer 2017 playlist to enjoy on your morning commute, a weekend adventure or both. I've got this on repeat until the Fall.

There's been so much good music this Summer, it's hard to pinpoint which artist/band I want to talk about first. I promise to make a Summer playlist soon featuring all my favorite songs that have been on constant rotation as I bop to work or glide into the weekend.

The first band that we need to discuss is Haim. The sisters highly anticipated sophomore album dropped and let's just say those four years of waiting for new material were absolutely worth the wait. They channel serious Wilson Phillips, Bat For Lashes, and Stevie Nicks vibes on "Something to Tell" and I can't get enough. I started thinking about my favorite songs and what I wanted to call out, but truth be told, not one song stands alone. The entire album is just too good. If you don't believe me, head over to Spotify and check it out as you can stream the entire album there.

For now check out their latest video for "Want You Back." I've got a feeling, you will be just as obsessed as I am. Enjoy!
