August Playlist

In just a little over a week, I’ll be heading on a long road trip back home and I’m going to be in desperate need of some new music to get me through the journey. As a lot of you are heading back to school, traveling for Labor Day Weekend, or making a permanent move for a new job in a new city, I wanted to compile a Road Trip Playlist to get you on your way. Feel free to include some of your favorite hits of the moment in the comments section to give myself some more tune inspiration!

1.) Shake It Off by Taylor Swift (I had to start with this one, I just had to)

2.) Gooey by Glass Animals

3.) Cool Kids by Echosmith

4.) Coffee by Sylvan Esso

5.) Buttons by The Weeks

6.) The Way We Touch by WE ARE TWIN

7.) The Face by Kings of Leon (an oldie, but a goodie)

8.) The Fire by French Horn Rebellion & Savoir Adore

9.) Welcome Home by Radical Face

10.) Take Me Home, Country Roads by John Denver (it isn’t a road trip without listening to this!)

11.) Dreams by the Cranberries (My personal favorite)

12.) Rivers and Roads by The Head and the Heart

13.) Highway Don’t Care by Tim McGraw

14.) Free by Rudimental feat. Emeli Sande

Motivation Station

We all know it’s important to stay active and exercise at least 2-3 times a week, but if you’re anything like me you need some good tunes to get you into the groove. I find that I’ll set out on a run thinking, “Yeah! I can do this – I’m going to go even longer today than I did last time!” and then fifteen minutes into the run, I hit a plateau because I’ve been listening to the same Top 40’s playlist on repeat all month. 

This happens to me WAY too often. I try to remember to refresh my workout playlist every two weeks or so, but life happens and I get too busy and completely forget to do so. Therefore, in order to motivate myself to stay inspired during my workouts I thought I’d compile a fun, energetic, upbeat, workout playlist to share with you all and maybe even help you get out of your own “fitness rut”. 


1.) Alive by Empire of the Sun

2.) Thunder Clatter by Wild Club

3.) Boom Clap by Charli XCX

4.) Love Never Felt So Good by Michael Jackson & Justin Timberlake

5.) Empire by Shakira

6.) Starry Eyed by Ellie Goulding

7.) Diane Young by Vampire Weekend

8.) Lay Me Down by Avicii

9.) One Day/Reckoning Song by Asaf Avidan

10.) Summer by Calvin Harris

Cheers to a happy & healthy workout!
