January Favourites

I started the year full of motivation and ideas ready to be explored, but sometimes (and by sometimes I mean always), life decides to throw some hurdles your way.

These songs bring to mind a cold winter day spent in my favourite coffeeshop, drinking coffee, writing in my journal and reading a book.

Sunshine in the Meadow || A Spring Playlist

This playlist is a combination of all the things that remind me of Spring. It makes me want to go on long drives with the windows down, run aimlessly amongst the trees, eat ice-cream for breakfast and have picnics every other day. I hope you enjoy it! x Blood – The Middle East Willow Tree […]

KAZ BREKKER // A Playlist

Kaz Brekker. Dirtyhands. Lieutenant of the Dregs.  My all-time favourite character deserved a playlist. So that’s what I did. May these songs call out to the words on those red-tainted pages and make him materialise next to me ….oh how I wish….
