The Music

What does music have to do with skincare? Nothing really. But music is a big part of what adds beauty to my day. And if one of your intentions is to add more beauty to your day- why not take a musically inclined route.

Often times music can make or break the task at hand. Here are some songs for dishwashing, laundry folding, shower cleaning, sweeping the kitchen floor, writing your grocery list, insert the next monotonousness activity here.

I am IN LOVE with this song!

One of my favorites. Classic Rock N’ Roll.

4 Smokin’ chicks in a band.

Wham! Wake Me Up Before You Go Go

How can this song not make you smile? Or at least want to wear neon clothes under a black light?

The Bird and The Bee Diamond Dave

Are you already familiar with The Bird and The Bee? I love them. And I love the fact this song is about David Lee Roth. The Bird and The Bee + David Lee Roth= an eclectic mix I appreciate very much.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs Maps  

I hear this song on Pandora and always think “I REALLY like that song”. Maybe you will too.

Chemise  She Can’t Love You

I heard this song sitting in a cafe in Manhattan. Our waitress was too busy flirting with the kid behind the register to bring me more coffee but in the interim this song came on and I was pleasantly distracted.

Thelma Houston Don’t Leave Me This Way

This song makes me want to dance, dance, dance! Preferably with a light up floor and feathered bangs. (Except I don’t have bangs).
