summer 2019 playlist

Happy summer! (and sunshine and pool days and sweat and humidity 🥴 ps — that’s my new favorite emoji and you bet your behind I’m going to use it every chance I get 💁🏻‍♀️).

Summer isn’t my favorite time of year (surprise, surprise), but I’m trying to embrace the things about it that I do love — popsicles, longer days, Big Brother being back on air, So You Think You Can Dance (have you seen this performance?! or this one or this one??), air conditioning (hah) … and good music! Also, I shared this watermelon spritzer recipe on the ‘gram a couple weeks ago and it’s my favorite thing on the planet lately:

In a magic bullet (or blender that’ll hold about 16 oz) — blend coconut water, watermelon, 2 drops Young Living Lime vitality and a little stevia — that’s it! So tasty and refreshing for those hot summer days!

 
 

I promise it tastes 10000000% better than it looks 🥴🤪 But back to the music — here’s the soundtrack to my summer so far:

 
 

What have you been listening to lately?

happy spring!

I hate the sunshine. There, I said it 🤭 I love downpours and Christmastime and all things winter, so the minute those little pink flowers start blooming and the sun peeks through the clouds, I get super nostalgic for those three frigid months of cold. (By frigid I mean 50-60 degrees. I’m a Californian, what can I say 😬 However, I do think snow + I would be besties). I’m probably in the minority on that (sorry to all the sun enthusiasts out there), but lately I’ve been trying to focus on the parts of spring I actually love:

1. Easter + Jesus!!!
2. those chocolates that look like little eggs but are coated in different pastel colors but aren’t the Cadbury creme eggs and does anyone actually know what I’m talking about??
3. alllllll the citrus essential oils (I’m looking at you, orange, grapefruit, lemon + tangerine)

bring on the citrus 🤘🏼

I love adding a drop or two of a Young Living Vitality citrus oil to my glass water bottle for the flavor + antioxidant boost!

ps — how cute is this water bottle from Target!? I got it in the dollar section and it comes in a bunch of other colors so I bought this one and a white one because $3 for a glass water bottle is cheap and look how cute!!

**I only recommend ingesting Young Living Vitality essential oils since those are specifically made for ingestion. Also, make sure you’re using glass when ingesting an eo!**

aaaaaand:

4. all the happy music! — technically happy songs are always available, but something about spring makes me want to bust out all the upbeat tunes + have 24/7 dance parties.

Speaking of music, I create a playlist every season based on what I’m listening to, what’s new or what feels right for the season. I made a Spring 2019 one that I’ll be adding to throughout the season AND I also made a ‘dancing in the kitchen’ playlist (filled with every upbeat, feel-good, sing-a-long tune I could think of) … *applause erupts* I know, I know, you’re welcome *takes bow* 😜 I’ve tested that last one out and can confirm it’s A+ material for all your kitchen dance parties or for belting out in the shower 👍🏼

What are you listening to lately?

Happy listening and happy spring! xx Kassi
