Somebody take the blender away from me! But seriously, I love this banana peanut butter smoothie I made. It's really easy to make. 

First, I froze the banana the night before so I wouldn't have to put ice cubes. So, I chopped it into chunks and placed them in the blender. Along with half a cup of milk, a heaping tablespoon of peanut butter and a tablespoon of agave. I used agave instead of honey because it's healthier and we didn't have any. And there you have it, a banana peanut butter smoothie. Perfect to start your day.

Listen to this brand new song, Tête-à-Tête, from Walk The Moon. I am absolutely loving it! It has such a great hook. I'm already singing along to it! I can't stop singing, "I want you just as bad. Why can't you see". They're so good, one of my favorite bands. Make sure to also check out their Tightrope EP coming out January 22nd. I'm excited!

Breakfast and Music

A smoothie and a great album,  that's how everyone should start their days. It's a great combination and just puts you in a very pleasant vibe. And, you can never go wrong with The Beatles. I've been making a lot of these smoothies these past few days because 1) we have an abundance of fruits at my place, 2) they're easy to make, and 3) they taste really good. I just love these. They're absolutely amazing plus extremely healthy. Get on it!

Current band crush/es:
Alt-j and Alabama Shakes. Listen to them. You might like them too. Check out Alt-j's Matilda and Alabama Shakes' Hold On.

Listen to this playlist I've put together. Enjoy.

Heart of Gold

     I'd like to think my taste in music is pretty diverse but the sad truth is that it's not. I lean towards more on the indie genre and like the occasional pop, techno, and rap. I really like indie rock and indie folk such as Vampire Weekend, Walk The Moon, The Shins, Best Coast, Noah and the Whale, Mumford & Sons, Freelance Whales and the list goes on. There's nothing really wrong with liking just a specific type of genre. I guess, I just know what I like and don't like. But for me, I really want to expand my musical taste because there's so many different kinds of music out there that I have yet to discover and hopefully love. There's afrobeat, worldbeat, blues, ska, trance, soul, and so much more. I mean, I haven't even given jazz a chance yet, maybe now I will.

     Well, recently my dad got a record player for Christmas and he's dug up some of his old records and has been playing it for some nights now. It's relatively different from what I usually listen to but having gone through his little stack of vinyl records, I saw a few that I was already listening to. Which is pretty awesome, I might add. He has some Neil Young and Alphaville which I like. So now, I really want to try and listen to some of his old records. It's a bit diverse but that's the challenge then. Although, I probably won't be going into something like worldbeat or ska. I don't think I'm quite ready  yet.
