Cinco de Mayo Playlist

EXTRAS, MUSICKim & Chloe

songs for cinco de mayo

Cinco de Mayo will be here before we know it. It's one of our favorite holidays and we used to throw killer Cinco de Mayo parties. Not only because there's a birthday in the house so it's double the reason to celebrate, but also because it's such a colorful holiday. It's one of the easiest parties to throw together because the theme is built-in for you, the decorations are plentiful and the color scheme is as wild as you want to make it. Piñatas, margaritas, crazy hats… you name it, everything is full of color! It's the perfect party for the whole family.

Whether you are having a fiesta, celebrating spring, a birthday, or just looking for an excuse to party… we have a Cinco de Mayo playlist for you.

Summer Songs, Part 1

EXTRAS, MUSICKim & Chloe

It's finally summer. Full of road trips, beach trips, & pool days. And don't each of these moments need a soundtrack to remember them? Our summer songs got a good workout as we started our road trip and the song that make us dance the most is Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines. I hope the radio doesn't overplay it this summer since it's definitely shaping up to be the "Call Me Maybe" of 2013 but with an effortlessly cool dance video. *love it*  Icona Pop's "I Don't Care" has been getting so much airplay that we introduce you to another hit by the Swedish duo. So put on your sunnies, grab a tall glass of something cool and sit back and enjoy the summer songs!! Summer Songs
