music of the month.

another month, another round of some music i’m loving at the moment! i wasn’t sure i’d even be able to do these posts monthly since when i find a good song i tend to listen to it on repeat until i can’t stand it anymore. turns out i’m still listening to all the songs i shared last month. sorrynotsorry. i did find some more great songs though this month :) hope you like ‘em!

1. Lay Me Down – Sam Smith

(okay Sam Smith in general) i know i’m a bit late to the the party, but i think after he pretty much stole the show at The Grammy’s last month everyone’s noticed how much talent this guy has. now he just needs to come to Indy sometime soon so i can see him in concert!

2. I Knew You Were Trouble – Taylor Swift and Ed SheeranScreen Shot 2015-03-15 at 8.23.54 PM

(insert random picture of Sweeran. click on the link for the song :) )

i came across this mashup somebody created on Tumblr and please listen even if you’re not a fan of Taylor (how dare you).

3. Budapest – George Ezra

i started hearing this song all over the radio this past month, and then i saw the performance of it when i was watching the Brit Awards and fell in love with it.

4. One Last Time – Ariana Grande

to be honest, i’m not a huge Ariana Grande fan, but there’s no denying that this girl can sing. i do love this song though!

5. Earned It – The Weeknd

can’t get enough of this song. i haven’t actually seen 50 Shades of Grey but all the music from the soundtrack that i’ve heard is on point.

weekly workouts.

and just like that i’m on spring break! where has this year gone? i swear it was just the end of summer. the school i work at only has 9 more weeks of school left. say what!?! in other news, i’m off to California this week. ahhhhh. i’ll being singing “Unwritten” all throughout my trip pretending i’m on The Hills ;)

here are last weeks workouts! nothing too exciting, except the addition of my first two runs outside since January. they were much needed and it felt so, so nice to be able to run in the sun, with a tank top on<3Screen Shot 2015-03-15 at 7.56.16 PM
