Classic(al) Beauty—On Morning Playlists

12:16 PM


I'm a firm believer in the idea that how you start your morning will set the mood for your whole day.


That's not to say that things can't change after that, of course, but I think that if you set aside time in the morning to let yourself breathe and relax, you'll be more relaxed throughout the course of the day.

So, recently, something that I try to incorporate into my morning routine is listening to some kind of music while I get ready for the day. I let the music help build me up into whatever mood I want to be in.


Sometimes it's something to amp me upsomething like "Centuries" by Fall Out Boy or "Revolution" by Diplo. Sometimes it's something poppy and upbeat like "Happy" by Pharrell Williams or something by Maroon 5. Most times it's something light and relaxing.

Instrumental music is the nicest thing to get ready to for me, because it feels luxurious somehow. Soft and soothing. My favorite instrumental music to listen to is video game soundtracks, but classical does the trick, too.


Favorite picks from my current Spring songlist 

1. Arabesque I - Debussy
2. Yuna's Theme (HD Remaster) - FFX OST
3. To Zanarkand - FFX OST (Kyle Landry's cover)
4. This Sailor Moon piano medley
5. Past Lives - BØRNS
6. Fairly Local - Twenty One Pilots
7. All About You - Hilary Duff
8. Pas De Deux - Dodie Clark (or Doddleoddle)
9. Castle - Taylor John Williams
10. Lilac Wine - Jeff Buckley (Miley Cyrus' cover)

What about you? Do you include music in your morning routine or are you more of a "listen to the birds chirping" sort of person?

  5. I do include music in my routine sometimes just to relax myself a little & have fun while getting ready. Yes, there are great compositions of musicians created for video games or movies that are really great to listen.

  6. AHH HiIlary Duff anything is totally therapeutic...I love the comeback she's been making (she's on the cover of Shape Magazine this month!) All of this music is sooo cute...I haven't heard any of these (except for the Hillary Duff one hahaha) it's so relaxing and perfect for the mornings!! I'll admit, I like to listen to really intense house or R&B to wake myself up hahaha but this is 100% my idea of a perfectttt playlist for those lazy lovely Sunday morningss :D soo cute!!! <3333
