Let's make this thing, an us thing.


Hey guys,

Lately, more than ever, I treasure relationships that I've built over the years and those that are new that I feel like I don't want to end anytime soon...

When I say relationships, I mean close relationships - like between friends or partners, but mostly the ones that put us in a confusing situation. I'm sure that all of us have a lot of things going on, and time is a luxury so we should be wise on who we spend it with. I'm not one to play mind games, I want the relationship to be honest and open. To be inspiring, motivating and encouraging. Not something that makes my heart uneasy or a reason for me to wake up with a heavy heart. But no relationship will go smoothly, bumps on the roads are normal just as long as you can communicate it. I emphasized on communication because I know how difficult it could be to communicate my feelings. Not until last year I realized how communication is crucial. 

People come into your life so that you can learn. Learn from their mistakes and learn from the mistakes of the relationship that you build with them. Last year's in particular taught me that I need to communicate better, express my feelings and stop overthinking like it's my hobby. How I should stop worrying because everything happens for a reason. How certain things that seems to take you down is actually elevating you. And sadly, I learned that sometimes, it takes us to lose someone to learn about our self-worth - which proved that not everything you lose is a loss. 


You expect relationship to better each other, build each other and grow together but none of this would happen if you are not being yourself. Someone told me that I should be comfortable enough to be myself and transparent to be in a relationship. But being myself means not taking advantage of people, not doing things half ass, so I guess I should forget all about the ego and pride, do what feels right and say what I feel. That way you could see each other true potential and learn their imperfections. 

To enter any kinds of relationship is to know the consequences, to not be scared of getting hurt, to be mature enough to be vulnerable and talk about your feelings. To know that just like any growth, you can't be ready for it. Most of the time it happens in the most unexpected ways possible.

So when things gets confusing, when things makes you feel unhappy, talk about it... Make the relationship to be something worth wasting time on, be comfortable with each other so that you could say what ever it is that's on your mind. You should be able to be yourself and still feel appreciated and loved. But when the relationship took its toll on you and you feel hurt, learn from it - learn what you should avoid in your other relationship and what you deserve. Just know that eventually, it will take you closer to what's yours.

It's been so long overdue but It's finally here. 
A little throwback and some new ones are added to help boost your mood.
These songs gives me so much energy, I could be having the worst mood and these songs would change it within minutes, esp Fucking Problems. 
Makes me want to dance and that makes me happy. 
HipHop has my heart, here are what's on my rotation.

Soulection Sunday

Hey guys,

Ugh, I'm not complaining because it has been such a pleasure and blessing. But, I'm sure you know how I'm feeling, that February is almost coming to an end. I was SO excited about this year's because of SO many things. One of them was because I got to see Soulection's very own Joe Kay live! How insane, I mean I've been listening to Soulection since Show 230 and have never missed a show. I've been religiously listening to them. It's just, they have good music and good music makes me happy.


You have no idea, how I was really looking forward to yesterday, which was the day of the event, I had butterflies in my stomach, that's how excited I was. I first knew about Soulection from ESTA
which he's just on another level. And since then, I've dedicated my Sundays for Soulection & chill.


Soundcloud played a big role of discovering Soulection and other amazing artists that I've been a fan of. And sometimes I'm selfish because I kinda don't want a lot of people to know about them because I want them all to myself but then again their music is amazing and I want to share more about them.

Anyways, this Sunday I want to dedicate the Playlist to SoundCloud, I made a new playlist called 5 for February17. I hope you can vibe to it and have a blessed Sunday, love.




P.S: the Solection Tour was lit, I had so much fun though not many of my friends listen to Soulection thus I don't have my friends with me there but I get to enjoyed it with people that actually appreciate their music. It was a VIBE. You'd already know if you follow me on Instagram ;)

pancakes for breakfast.

"Never underestimate the power of making her pancakes on a Sunday morning" -J.M Storm


I think breakfast dates should be a thing, don't you? Whether it's cooking at home, a picnic or at a cozy pancake house, I think waking up early to spend more time with that special person in your life is lovely. 

I'm selfish when it comes to my Sunday and who I spend it with. I want it to be relax, I want it to be adventurous, I want it to be breathtaking. Filled with genuine feelings, good company, good food and good music. Whether it's dancing in the living room or salsa dancing at a Tapas Restaurant. Museum hopping or going to a flea market. 

But it doesn't always about doing something, sometimes it's all about doing absolutely nothing with the person you love. A lazy Sunday.

This playlist is something that I'd play on a Sunday throughout the day; from waking up in the morning, taking a bath, making pancakes, reading a book and everything in between. Bossa nova, jazz, something light and something easy without much thinking.


I hope you feel blessed this Sunday, enjoy!

LOVER

For you thirsty hearts,

Someone who loves love, a hopeless romantic and a beautiful soul.
This playlist, I made wholeheartedly for you who craves love and affection.
If you're lucky enough to have someone to enjoy this day with, I hope you feel loved and special. 
If not, I believe one day you will have that someone. Someone who appreciate love as much as you do, obsessed with you, someone that you can have real conversations with, someone that you can get a lil freaky with, someone that you can be yourself around with. The homie, lover type ;)

All this playlist ever need are candles, dim lights and one passionate love.



Happy love day,

VDAY17

Hey guys,

How's February treating you so far? I hope you feel loved and blessed.
This year, I'm focusing on my inner peace, inner happiness. So, it's important that things and people around me makes me feel at peace and happy.

Starting last December, it began with a music party in the city. That night, I dance and dance and dance. I was so happy because they play my songs and all I can think of is the music and dancing. You have no idea how long I've been longing to just dance to my music surrounded with people who understands the music. After that night, I just have such good vibes around me. I'm more grateful towards little things and just more positive towards life. It;s amazing how music can give such big impact towards you.

I don't have much source of happiness lately, because as I grow older I feel like it's all about the quality not the quantity. One of them is obviously, music. I pretty much listen to music all day every day. I crave good music, I'm always somewhere on the internet digging to find new music. New music in this case is not necessarily new releases, just music that I haven't listen to. And I'm the happiest when I linked up with people that likes the same music as I do. People that talk the same language. People that I can have real conversations with. That's rare nowadays, so if I do I cherish them, truly.

This VDAY17 I set up a playlist for you to dance to. Love or relationship or just you know.... ;) These songs are from the '90s, '00s and new releases. I hope you guys enjoy it. Let me know what you think and leave a comment if you have songs that I should listen to!

BDAY GYAL

Hey guys,

Happy February 5th!! I'm so excited to finally post my first playlist of the 4 playlists I will be posting every Sunday this month.

This year, unlike previous years, I don't have a particular vibe. It's more to just what I'm feeling from the beat, the words or the meaning behind the music.

I had a lil birthday soiree last night with two of my bestfriends and my brother, the music was SO DAMN GOOD and it was perfect... what's missing is only my mom. She was pretty tired so she couldn't make it. But other than that, I was beyond happy.

22, I am praying heavy that you will bring more blessings into my life. More life's best surprises. I can't wait to unravel what God has planned for me this year. I am grateful that God is working on me endlessly and thankful thankful thankful for everything. Also praying to be able to find someone that I can share my love and passion with.

I recently got an advice from a very wise man, to focus on me first and if it's time that special someone will come. And I will do that, I will put my faith in God, in God's timing and focus on what I have now.

I have so many things planned, and this year is time to get back to work. Last year, the first half it was all about university and the second half was all about having fun. This year, is all about balance. Because everything that is 'too much' is never good.

Lastly, I want to thank you for the wishes through social media and text messages. everything has been wonderful and so lovely. Same prayer goes to you! I wish you all nothing but success and happiness this year. Love.

Enjoy!
P.S. leave me a comment or shoot me a message letting me know your favorite song that I should put on my next playlist, greatly appreciate it x
