BeatHead Babe:Walking On Fire | Rilan & The Bombardiers

My Sunday is like any other, filled with a lot of planning, rest, relaxation, music, cleaning and just being unproductive. One of my favorite Spotify stations is the Morning Rhythm playlist. It’s a combination of bands, soul, pop, quirky indie and I came across this extremely soulful song as I was reading and stopped to dance a bit. Life has picked up for me and I am currently in the accelerated lane doing 100mph. I am now a full time educator, freelance writer, graduate student, and entrepreneur, so my time has become even more invaluable.

The band Rilan and The Bombardiers are from The Netherlands…go figure right? Since every good thing seems to come from the perfect land of The Netherlands.

Beathead Babe: Rush | Rose Gabor

This holiday break, I decided to put down the laptop. I spend a good 80 percent on my day on the Interwebs searching for my next lead, pitch ideas and producing content for either Saint Heron, Madame Noire or on here for all you lovely readers and supporters, but I decided to go without for the weekend and I woke up this morning feeling extremely rested. It was a quiet morning and I felt really mellow. 

Over the weekend, I had a load of songs I wanted to post for my BeatHead Babe Mondays, but when I woke this morning “Rush” by UK babe Rose Gabor came to mind and it was perfect. The song talks about new love or the curiosity of exploring what could lead to new love and I’m in this season where I’ve been attracting a lot of unusuals. Men, that on the surface I probably wouldn’t notice, but the cupid Gods have been in my favor lately and I’ve been meeting some quality guys who actually are interested in dating and knowing Dej below the surface. So in addition to the smooth vibes of the song, it tells a sultry and sexy story of navigating love/lust/curiosity.

May your Monday be as mellow as mine and for those of you chasing deadlines, don’t let them kill you!

BeatHead Babe: Glass Age | Szjerdene


I rose this morning with the sun in my face and a cool breeze coming through the crack I made with my window and I just felt the need to be productive so I did some ab crunches BECAUSE I REFUSE TO LET THE WINTER FLUFF GET ME and decided to update my Digital Portfolio (if you’re looking for a freelancer, editor hire me!) I also had my morning tea and a scrambled and and I was ready to begin my day in the most mellow way with some banging vibes. I was working on an Audio piece for Saint Heron last night on Equal’s new Sade cover and I stumbled upon this beauty Szjerdene and I fell in love with this song.

My work day will consist of lots of writing, brainstorming and loads of editing! Happy Monday!
