April Music Spotlight 2017

Breaking News: It Actually Feels a Bit Like Spring?? Welcome to the lovely month of May everyone, the fine line between winter and summer that we tread like a tightrope, praying that our steps are light enough as to not re-awaken the ghosts of winter.  Spring officially started last month, but it hasn't really felt like… Continue reading April Music Spotlight 2017

March Music Spotlight 2017

Nancy Mulligan - Ed Sheeran - ÷ (2017) A rather Scottish-sounding piece, Nancy Mulligan from Ed Sheeran's newly released album ÷  tells the story of Ed's grandparents, William Sheeran and Nancy Mulligan.   The album as a whole draws a lot of inspiration from Ed's personal life, past, and heritage, and this a lovely homage to his… Continue reading March Music Spotlight 2017

February Music Spotlight 2017

Where's My Love - SYML - Hurt For Me (2016)  There's nothing better than discovering a new artist and falling completely, utterly in love with them.  How had I never discovered SYML before??  Their sound is so peaceful and ethereal, haunting and striking, and just wooooow. I love this song of theirs more than words can… Continue reading February Music Spotlight 2017

January Spotlight 2017: Etsy Stores & Music Recs

The Last Spotlight? Hello, my lovely people, today I have a dilemma to present to you.  I'm considering disbanding the monthly spotlight.  You see, the more I think about it, the more sense to makes for me to just put all the content I put into these Spotlights into their own individual posts.  This way, people can… Continue reading January Spotlight 2017: Etsy Stores & Music Recs

December Spotlight 2016

The Final Countdown... Guess who got her learner's permit today?  This gal!  I believe it's only customary to say, "The roads just got a little more dangerous."- though the only roads I'll be driving down are wide, safe, empty ones, since I don't actually desire to commit vehicular manslaughter.  Other than that little bit of… Continue reading December Spotlight 2016

November Spotlight 2016

The Final Month Hi there!  Happy December!  As we approach this final month of 2016, I'd like to take some time to reflect.  2016 has been a notoriously horrible (*cough* US election *cough*), but I think it's still important to realize the good things about this year.  Because, after everything, we've made it!  We've all… Continue reading November Spotlight 2016

October Spotlight 2016

It's November 6th, no longer October, but I simply cannot miss out on a month of Spotlight!  It would be like pouring cereal before milk (yes, I pour milk first, persecute me), or like singing Christmas carols in July- simply atrocious!  Unfortunately, I have procrastinated all of October away, so here I am writing this… Continue reading October Spotlight 2016

September Spotlight 2016

IT'S THE BEST TIME OF THE YEAR And don't we all know it!  October to December are, inarguably, the absolute best months of the year.  You've got Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Boxing Day, New Year's- an truckload of fun, exciting holidays!  Right now, we've got a beautiful array of vibrantly coloured leaves on the… Continue reading September Spotlight 2016

August Spotlight 2016

August is drawing to a close, taking with it the last precious days of summer.  Although I was complaining about the lack of productivity, late August is when I start getting settled into the lax routine of doing next to nothing all day.  And it's just *great* timing, because just when I start enjoying myself,… Continue reading August Spotlight 2016

July Spotlight 2016

July draws to a close, as does the first half of Summer 2016.  Today's Spotlight is probably the longest one so far, since I've had day after day after long, boring day to do nothing except browse the internet in search of entertainment.  This month, I've learned that I might not be a Hufflepuff after… Continue reading July Spotlight 2016
