Music Thursday ~ No.4

Have you had a chance to see the movie Chef yet? It’s on Netflix (I am a huge Netflix fan) and I highly recommend it. Jon Favreau is absolutely hilarious. It is a perfect Sunday night, laying around, type of movie. Here’s a little synopsis – a once very famous Chef get’s stuck in a rut because he kept on cooking the same boring foods in recent years which left him uninspired. He decides to start a food truck and the rest is history (I don’t want to spoil the movie if you end up watching it)!

The soundtrack is pretty awesome and throughout the movie I found myself wanting to baila (= dance in spanish) and eat the entire time. I loved this partciular song from the soundtrack and I have been bopping around to it as I commute to and from work in this frigid Manhattan weather. It reminds me of the sun, the beach, good food and only smiles — which is just one week away. That’s right… I am heading down to sunny Florida next week and I.cannot.wait. Happy Thursday (New Yorkers stay warm or stay inside today) and hope you enjoy the song!

PS. Here’s Music Thursday No.3 in case you missed it last week!

Music Thursday ~ No.3

Earlier this evening, I had drinks and a quick bite with an old friend whom I haven’t seen in years. It was so fun catching up, chit chatting and hanging out like old times. She’s a very successful entrepreneur and it was amazing hearing about how she’s been able to grow her business (by triple) just this past year. She’s also a fellow blogger so I loved picking her brain on how she got started and how she evolved in the blogosphere. I’m fortunate enough to be surrounded by such talented, successful, amazing people. From artists to designers to wall streeters, it’s truly inspiring how much young talent surrounds me.

Speaking of young talent, who else is in love with Ed Sheeran? I just can’t get enough of this cutie patootie red head. This song + acoustic version = to die for. Hope you love it as much as I do and Happy Thursday!

Music Thursday ~ No.2

It’s almost the freakin’ weekend, wahoo! Full disclosure, I have a pretty eclectic taste in music so the Music Thursday series will probably be all over the place in terms of genre. The Rihanna/Kanye/Paul song last week was perfect because it suited the exact poppy mood I was in at that moment in time. That’s usually how it works for me, my mood dictates the music I listen to.

This week, I wanted to share this new band I’ve very recently discovered, Run River North. They are an indie folk band and all six of them are extremely talented. I really like this particular song and it’s been on repeat this week. Something about it is catchy and soothing, I’m sure they are amaze live. Enjoy & let me know what you think!

Music Thursday ~ No.1

I am so screaming happy that it’s almost Friday. AND this weekend… is a much needed long weekend. I can’t seem to get this song out of my mind since I heard it on the Grammy’s Sunday night. It is pretty amazing and Rihanna is such a force to be reckoned with. I have officially decided that Thursday’s will be Music Thursday because everyone should be celebrating the day before Friday. Only one more day till Friday.
