Your Welcome-to-Summer-Break Pre-Party Playlist

As much as I love the last day of classes every school year, I'll be honest: summer sorta stresses me out. I just never really know what the break will bring.

Your Ultimate Spring Break Pre-Party Playlist

I think there are just one too many excuses to celebrate this month - from Spring Break to St. Patty's Day and even Mardi Gras (even though I will not exactly be there to enjoy it...). Let me tell you, March is really gonna test my stamina.

Your February Pre-Party Playlist

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I thought I’d select songs for this month’s playlist that are all about love. But not in that completely obnoxious, sappy, cheesily romantic way. That's not my cup of tea, ladies.

2010 is officially coming to a close and what a year it’s been in music! This year presented us with an awesome array of new artists, re-introduced us to some ones we may have forgotten about, and of course, left some songs in our heads we wish we would never have to hear again. So let's take a look back and rock out to the 20 biggest songs of 2010. (It’s like my own little Grammy’s!!)

Your December Pre-Party Playlist

Well, I’m just gonna give it to you straight. Despite having some great music to jam out to, this past month was a rough one.

Summer can cause a lot of confusion when it comes to you and your man.

Beat the Summer Heat In Style

As great as it is to finally have the summer weather here, the season can create a lot of problems that tend to lengthen your morning routine. Like that near third-degree burn you picked up at the beach… how are you ever gonna cover that up in time for work?

Salmon Vodka – Who Thought This Was a Good Idea?
