Music Rumblings: Music Monday 9.30.13

Happy Last Day of September! I recently re-watched Snow White and the Huntsman and was reminded how mediocre that movie is, but how wonderful Florence  and the Machine’s “Breath of Life” is.  “Breath of Life” is sweeping, epic and spectacular. There is a lot going on in the song, but it all goes together beautifully. One of my favorites!

Music Rumblings: Music Monday 9.16.13

This is going to be a slightly different Music Monday since I haven’t been listening to this song, but it is from the Princess of Pop and it just needed to be discussed. I have been a fan of Britney Spears since her Mickey Mouse Club (MMC) days. I grew up with Britney and I always look forward to her releases. Today saw the release of Britney’s newest single, “Work Bitch”, from her forthcoming studio album. I have mixed feelings about this song. On one hand, I like certain parts of this song and I can see myself listening to this when I am working out or getting ready to go out, but in general, I find it….boring. Boring may not be the word I am looking for, but this song doesn’t excite me. Certain parts feed my music soul, but as a whole, it doesn’t really stick with me. I also think it is too long and a little repetitive. It’s a decent song, but I don’t have the urge to listen to it over and over again.

Even with my lukewarm feelings to the song, I am glad to see Britney make a comeback and I am looking forward to her new album. I mean, after all, it’s Britney Bitch! 🙂

Beauty/Subscription Box Rumblings: Birchbox August 2013

 

This is my belated August Birchbox post. I didn’t post about it when I first received it in mid-August, and since I cannot think of any songs to post for Music Monday today I figured why not procrastinate and write about my August Birchbox…even though it is September…..and my September box is on it’s away….. Oh well it’s my blog and I can do what I want. 🙂 Anyway, the theme for August was “Finishing School.” I didn’t love this box as much as I loved my June and July box (which I will share since I like to be late like that), but it wasn’t a bad box. Check it out!Read More »

Subscription Box Rumblings: Birchbox September Sneak Peek

Birchbox just posted their September sneak peek video and this month’s theme is Heritage. I loved my July box and my August box was okay (hopefully I’ll get around to posting about them).  This month, every subscriber is getting a nail polish from Ruffian, a fashion brand also known for creating the “Ruffian manicure”. I love me some nail polish so I am super excited about that. Also, some subscribers will be receiving a card for 1000 points which is $100 to shop in the Birchbox shop. I am on a life imposed no buy so that would be awesome to receive. I am dying to shop for some beauty and skincare products. Fingers crossed. Check out the video below!

Music Rumblings: Music Monday 9/2/13

Now that I am back in the swing of things and I have a new dedication to my life, likes and hobbies, it is time to start paying attention to this blog. It is a new month and with my current employment status, a perfect time to FINALLY start posting regularly (only took me a year, but whatever…). There are 3 songs that I have been loving for the past week and will probably be listening to a lot in the foreseeable future.Read More »
