Spring 2019 Carnival Fun Playlist

The weather is finally getting warmer in NYC, and I cannot wait until it’s consistently 60-70┬░ F out!

Springtime brings the gorgeous weather, pretty flowers, and fun outdoor carnivals and fairs. I’ve created a spring playlist with a carnival theme for your spring enjoyment. From Ferris wheels to carousels, let’s take a ride with these ten carnival-themed songs:

1. Fairground, Leo Kalyan. “Lose your cares in the afterglow, and spin me around, round.”

2. Carousel, Skylar Spence. This tune will have you “spinnin’ like a carousel.”

3. Round & Round, Selena Gomez & The Scene. Don’t go getting dizzy on me now.

4. Mannequin, Britney Spears. Don’t “scream your lungs out” on that ride.

5. All That’s Left, Manila Killa ft. Joni Fatora. “When we go ’round and ’round on this carousel.”

6. Carousel (Bobby Green Remix), Melanie Martinez. Go ahead, just dance your way through spring with this beat.

7. Merry Go Round, Kacey Musgraves. Doesn’t Kacey go so well with a beautiful spring day at the carnival?

8. The Real Thing, Phoenix. “Turn the eternal carousel on.”

9. Reforget, Lauv. But whatever you do, don’t let your “head [spin] like a carousel, over and over.”

10. All Stars, Martin Sloveig ft. ALMA. A spring anthem.

Happy Spring!

Gallery Mondays: #MacysFlowerShow 2017 @ Macy’s Herald Sq

I somehow managed to squeeze some time in after work to navigate the maze that is Macy’s Herald Square in order to see the carnival-themed Macy’s Flower Show 2017.

I wasn’t able to see it last year (for reasons I cannot remember) but this year, I was determined to check it out, and I wasn’t disappointed.

The store’s street level and store windows were filled with floral arrangements, sculptures of carousel horses and clowns, and loads of other carnival-related display┬áitems. There were even unicorns!

My favorite was this spotted horse near Louis Vuitton. The flowers really brought its neutral colors to life. I can imagine how torturous it must have been for kids that were in the store with their parents, because even I wanted to hop on this horse for a ride around the carousel.
