2017 Best in Beauty + Lifestyle, with Music Selections (Top 5 Tracks, Top 5 Albums)

january 3, 2018 | by: mercedes | filed under: videos, playlists

By now I’m sure many of you have had a chance to watch this (long!) video already, but I was delayed getting the music selections posted. Here they are! I chose the 5 tracks that were in my heaviest rotation, and 5 albums I fell in love with. As with the rest of my annual product favorites, these are not necessarily songs or albums that were released in 2017, but rather 2017 discoveries (and loves) for me. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have. If you like any of them, please consider supporting the artists by purchasing their music. Here’s to another great year of crate digging and blissful sounds.

October/November Favorites Playlist + Upcoming website changes

december 3, 2017 | by: mercedes | filed under: playlists

I fell in love with some beautiful new music the past couple months! I highly recommend checking out the full albums these come off of, and supporting the artists by purchasing tracks you enjoy. I just selected some of my favorites for you to enjoy – this is a very relaxed playlist, perfect for a Sunday:

Ok and then website changes – basically no real details yet, just that it’s in the process of happening and I’m reconfiguring how I post and catalogue content, stay organized across the various platforms I produce under and manage. This whole managing an online endeavor has become so increasingly complicated! But it will get sorted out, and then I feel this space will become much more functional and with less repetition (just reposting videos and such). So I hope you’ll stay tuned!
