October Playlist


“Hey,” you’re saying, “What happened to September’s playlist?” This is it! It had been bugging me that overtime, with playlists going live towards the end of the month, that the name of the playlist reflected a month nearing its end. So we’re hopping ahead this month to October. Not that September wasn’t wonderful. But with a Hawaiian vacation, weekend trips to Tahoe and Napa, and just, you know, fall, I’m ready for October indeed.

I must admit that I’m really not one for Halloween (all that effort for a costume? Dude, I can barely muster up excitement about diversifying my wardrobe), but I always love October’s gentle welcome into the fall season. You can feel totally cool busting out boots and sweaters this month without that awkward, “Are we still in summer? Is it really fall yet?” debate in your head. Although, the sweaters/boots fantasy might be just that for me this month, since October usually sees some SF’s nicest weather! But I’m feeling good about October generally. How about you?

Back to the music. I’m really digging the playlist this month. Sometimes the songs come together in a very piecemeal way, as I discover things slowly. Other times (like this month) I have a few songs I’ve been saving, then discover a whole bunch over the course of a day or two. I’m loving the mix of fun, work-ready dance tracks, as well as some slower (maybe even sexier?) tunes, perfect for fall. I hope you enjoy it!

I always love hearing what you’re up to — any fun plans for the month? Maybe just taking supplements? I’m so thrilled you guys enjoyed last Thursday’s post so much; thank you kindly for all your comments and emails! It’s made me realize I can talk about my random health discoveries more here, if I feel like it. It seems as though we’re a community who really likes discovering and sharing that info, which makes me feel warmer and fuzzier inside than any sweater will this month. Cheers to you, month ten.

    I picked up the probiotics yesterday (turns out the ones I have been taking probably aren’t doing much for me) and am ordering the other supplements this afternoon! As for October, my fiancé turns 30 on Thursday and then one of my best friends will be joining him at the end of October so we’re all meeting up in Vegas next week to celebrate :) After that, I imagine I’ll need a nice long nap and a detox. I’m looking forward to taking as many Studio Three Torch classes as my body will allow. Hawaii sounds amazing…but then again, so does Tahoe and Napa – enjoy!

      You and me both, sista. I had literally bought a probiotic from Walgreens (generic) that had maybe 5 billion microorganisms per capsule. I thought that sounded like a lot. Little did I know that 50 billion would be a better place for me to start (I was kind of floored when I realized there were ones at Whole Foods that had 100 billion!). Let me know how it goes with the other supplements.

      Sounds like you have a fun October too — enjoy it!! :D

    Yes!! I can’t tell you how much I look forward to your playlists! Your musically taste is so on point with mine that it’s ridiculous haha. Can’t wait to sit down and listen through this month.
