Favourite Christmas Songs

Can you believe there are only


Man, this year it REALLY doesn't feel like Christmas! It's partly because of the amazingly mild weather and no snow in sight, but also because of the lack of decorations in stores and around town in general. 

This isn't going to stop me. I'm going to blast my Christmas jams and bake all the BEST Christmas cookies! I decided to make you a list of my favourite Christmas songs.

Growing up my grandmother lived with us and she was ALWAYS singing. Most of the songs (and a few of the singers) on this list I love thanks to her. They are the perfect Christmas memories for me! 

She & Him - Baby It's Cold Outside

Elvis Presley - Blue Christmas 

Otis Redding - Merry Christmas Baby

Bing Crosby - The Christmas Waltz

Frankie Ballard - Run Run Rudolph (Chuck Berry Cover)

And lastly, what kind of Christmas song list would this be if it didn't include a little Mariah. 
Mariah Carey - All I Want for Christmas is You

These are just a handful of my favourite songs for the holidays, what are yours?


What I'm Listening To (September 2015)

Everyone loves getting new music. I know I do! I'm a big fan of many varieties of genres and artists. I thought it would be fun to share the top albums I've been listening to the past little while. Now, I'm not a music critic at all, and these aren't meant to be reviews. They're just some albums I'm playing on repeat and thought I should share.

Check them out, who knows, I may have just given you a new favourite! 

Badlands - Halsey
This woman can do no wrong in my books. New Americana is almost certainly something you've heard. I feel like I can get anything done when listening to this gem. My boyfriend thinks she's a lot like Lorde, but I can't help but think of her as the female The Weeknd. Whatever comparison made, this woman has what it takes to sell out world concerts months away. I'd say she's doing something right. 

Abandoned - Defeater
This band, wow. I suppose for those who don't know them, you could consider them a "hardcore-ish" band. The vocals are unapologetic and filled with emotion, the guitars are tough and the drums are heavy. This band deserves your ears, your heart and your time. 

The Things We Think We're Missing - Balance and Composure
Unlike the other two above albums this one isn't a new release, but that shouldn't sway you from giving it a listen. The newest release (2013) from B&C and probably my favourite. 

No Closer To Heaven - The Wonder Years
What can I say about this? Pop Punk easy going jams. Great for running through the train station or the gym. 

What are you listening to right now? What are your favourite albums? Let me know below or over on Facebook! I'll definitely check them out!
