This is a French Bossa nova playlist for you guys. If you know me you know Bossa nova or French jazz is always playing in my house. I listen to it while I make coffee, do laundry, clean the house…you get it. ALWAYS expect Bossa nova to be playing throughout my home. It was something special between me & The Nanz– we always used to listen to it together. I was introduced to it through my friends Jen & Mike – I love it all… Sérgio Mendes, Diana Krall. It gives me piece of mind & I find it very therapeutic. The Girl From Ipanema is the song I walked down the aisle to & Michael might even get a Bossa nova tattoo because that’s how much I love it. At the end of the day, it brings me peace among chaos & I can’t live without it.
A lot of you have asked about the music that plays in the background of my Instagram Stories so I’ve curated a special, The Skinny Confidential French Bossa Nova Playlist for you. This is something I highly recommend that you listen to while you’re working. I think you guys are …
You guys know I love a good playlist and I like to switch it up.
Michael and I have been driving to and from LA a lot. We’re in the car for 3-4 hours AT LEAST, 2 times a week.
This playlist has totally helped us get through the drive. I love podcasts, but sometimes it’s nice to just chill and zone out – especially when Michael starts asking too many questions- ::turns up volume::
Mimi created this for us AND YOU! Thank you MIMI! Mimi is very much on the pulse. I feel like she always knows what the young, cool kids are doing.
I love every single song on this playlist, but I’m especially loving Crave You by Flight Facilities, and Good Mistake by Mr. Little Jeans.
YOUR WISH IS MY COMMAND. & according to Twitter & Snapchat messages, you want more music.
I’m lucky when it comes to the whole music thing because I have Mimi on my side- thank God. Mimi is very hip & up on all the latest music. So I’m very happy that she helps put together a medley of a playlist that is very evolved. AKA this one. THANK YOU MIMI. We love you.
I mean if it were up to me at this point the whole playlist would consist of Bossanova & Christmas music? Which is creepy I feel?
To be real though, I can be real lazy about my music so Mimi is constantly keeping me up-to-date.
( ….& eer, does anyone else start listening to Christmas music October 29th? I mean The Monster Mash just doesn’t do it for me so I need a I’LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS jingling on my speakers, you know? ).
Anyway, speaking of audio: besides music you know you can find me listening to podcasts when I’m driving or applying makeup. BUTTT when I have my ambience happening ( which is quite a lot ) I love to light candles, diffuse oils…
The sign really popped out of the bushes all weekend, you know. Front & center, it read: SAME PENIS FOREVER.
All sparkly & glittery, reminding me every second while I downed the chilled rosé.
Couldn’t really avoid the sign, it stuck out like a sore thumb.
…Ok, ok, but if we’re going to have the same penis forever, let’s definitely have an INSANE playlist? IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK?
( Some of you asked, you can find the sign on Etsy ).
A little side story: the second I got to the house, the demands started. Not like mean demands. Just micro-managing-the-shit-out-of-my-friends demands. Picture Lady Tremaine, the stepmom in Cinderella in bed with her cat, Lucifer LISTING OFF HER absurd scroll of requests. I mean I didn’t actually have Pixy but if I did I’d be petting her aggressively in an evil, diabolical way. So. I was walking around making my annoyingly anal demands ( “WHERE ARE THE FLORAL PRINTED S’MORE STICKS, MIMI!”, “JORDAN WE NEED TO HAVE A DISCO BALL COCKTAIL MOMENT!”, “ERICA IF I DON’T HAVE PINK SUGARED RIMS ON THE MARGARITAS, WHAT’S THE POINT?” ) & suddenly, amidst demands, I REALIZED there was no music.
Really though, this is the actual playlist I listen to when lifting weights, squatting, driving, working, sipping Pinot Noir, relaxing, reading, ETC.
It’s a plethora of songs.
You should know though: it’s a real medley.
Like, this isn’t a themed genre playlist.
A lot of you guys have asked me: “what’s that music in the background of your Snapchat?”
WELLLL, IT’S RANDOM…& it’s Bossanova. Which is what they play at places like The Beverly Hills Hotel…& retirement homes. Google says it’s “a style of Brazilian music derived from samba but placing more emphasis on melody and less on percussion.”
And it’s been my favorite music for as long as I can remember. The vibe is just so ON. Trust me, once you listen to Bossanova you will understand my obsession. I hope?
