Fall 2018 Halloween Costume Party Playlist

This fall, I’ve decided to wait until near the end of October to bring you a Halloween Costume Party Playlist!

The following playlist can serve as both entertainment for your Halloween party and a list of generic costume ideas, as each song title is the name of a common costume.

Enjoy!

1. Ghost, VHS Collection. Starting this party off with a smooth ghostly rhythm.

2. I Am Not A Robot, Marina and the Diamonds. Try to convince the computer CAPTCHA that you’re not a robot while in costume 🤣

3. E.T., Katy Perry. “Could you be the devil, could you be an angel?” No. An extra terrestrial.

4. Monster, Lady Gaga. Try not to eat anyone’s heart out tonight, okay monster?

5. Oh Devil, Electric Guest ft. Devin Di Dakta. “Oh, devil, I know you’re afraid…”

6. I Can’t Be Your Superman, Skylar Spence. Uh, yeah you can! No one can stop you from being superman tonight. Literally.

7. Mannequin, Britney Spears. Practice those mannequin dance moves in the mirror before the party and blow everyone’s minds!

8. King, Grades. Enjoy being treated like a king all night.

9. Queens, Rulers. Grab your girl group and dress up like the queens you know you all are.

10. Rocket Girl, Lemaitre ft. Betty Who. “You can call [her] rocket girl.”

11. Cheerleader, Omi (Felix Jaehn Remix). Did you find yourself a cheerleader at the party?

12. She Wolf, Shakira. Beware of the “she wolf in the closet.”

13. Doctor, the bird and the bee. Let’s just hope no one needs a doctor by the end of the night because chances are they’re just in costume.

Have a happy and safe Halloween 2018!

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Mila Kunis @ Cosmopolitan Party in NYC

 

mila kunis fashionIt’s been too long since I’ve done a Wardrobe Wednesdays post! I’m a bit rusty, so just bear with me.

Mila Kunis attended a Cosmopolitan party in New York City celebrating her cover last week in this amazing plaid ensemble. She wore a matching blazer and pant with blue and brown hues, sporting a tan-colored tank underneath.

I don’t think I’d be able to pull off this matching suit myself, but it looks so great on her! I do love an oversized blazer, and Mila Kunis makes it seem so effortlessly cool to wear on a petite frame with this look.

The original pants are completely sold out, but the blazer is still in stock (marked with *). Check out the links below for some other items inspired by this outfit!

Pants:

1. YOOX, $149.00

2. YOOX, $129.00

Guest Blog: Syaza of Hana Blurbs’ Baby, It’s Cold Outside: Christmas Mix and Match

This post was written by Malaysian beauty and lifestyle blogger Syaza over at Hana Blurbs. She’s all about the smiley emoticons and the super cute outfit guides. Be sure to check out her blog, and enjoy the post below!

Hello all! I am Syaza from Hana Blurbs 🙂 I am a beauty and lifestyle blogger and I could sidetrack to other types of blog niche once a while. Hehe. I’d like to thank Dana for the guest post opportunity 😀

Anyways, Christmas is coming soon! Despite not having snow here in Malaysia, people here still celebrate Christmas 🙂 So today I will be coming out with a few recommendations of mine, I hope my style won’t be too weird for you to digest!

Outfit #1: Monochrome Boy Chic

Monochrome Boy Chic

 

Personally, my style is a little tomboy and girly at the same time. Probably with a little rebel rock vibe. Haha. I wanted to do a little twist with the jumper, so I chose an asymmetrical tulle skirt with it. Since it’s rather cold during winter (it is also chilly lately here in Malaysia!), I suggest this Dr Martens boot paired together with long knee-length socks. This is heavily influenced by Japanese style probably, despite the fact I do not read a lot of Japanese magazines. Hehe.

Next one!

Outfit #2: Candy Cane Love

Candy Cane Love

 

Another preference of mine: outfits that do not need to be sexy to look sexy. Get it? Haha. Other than that, I also want to emphasize on comfort, and for me, this set has that factor.

Outfit #3: Cutie Pie Dwarf

Cutie Pie Dwarf

 

I wanted to find something with print, but I guess tulle skirts catches my attention for this season. This outfit is suggested for a Christmas party. There are two options for shoes, same type different heights – in case one feels like dancing or doesn’t. I can imagine all shapes and sizes wearing this dress. The length is not too overwhelming for anyone, in my opinion 🙂 With the kind of hair and makeup I have attached with, it’ll definitely attract a little attention :p

And that’s all for my recommendations! I hope this will at least inspire you a little 😀 Thank you!

Songs to Celebrate Independence Day

fourth of july

Today marks the 237th birthday of the United States.

It’s time to celebrate!

We’ve come a long way since 1776.

It’s a shame though, that the founding fathers didn’t have a soundtrack to go along with their signing of the Declaration of Independence.

Or did they?

In any case, here a few patriotic songs to listen to as you celebrate your independence in America, the land of the free.

1. The American Dream, Allstar Weekend: Because we all believe in the dream, don’t we? This song celebrates the fact that in America, it doesn’t matter who you are and where you’re from, you can make it in this world if you have the dream.

2. Party in the USA, Miley Cyrus: Every Fourth of July since 1776 has been a party, so let Miley remind you to live it up!

3. Made in the USA, Demi Lovato: Anything that has been fabricated here in the US has special meaning, so why not celebrate love as well as independence with this song from Demi’s new album?

4. Americano, Lady Gaga: Think about how hard the soldiers fought when Gaga sings “I will fight for, I have fought for how I love you.” And go a little gaga for America.

5. The Star-Spangled Banner, Frances Scott Key: At some point during the day, you’ve got to remember the national anthem. It’s only right.

Have a happy and safe Fourth of July!

Summer 2013 Playlist

summer playlist

It’s officially summer! Here comes the vacations, the parties and all the fun! But those summer activities wouldn’t be complete without a summer playlist now, would they?

Here are 14 fun, festive and relaxing summer songs to add to your summer playlist.

1. Summer’s Not Hot, Selena Gomez and the Scene: What else screams summer better than Selena Gomez literally screaming “It’s summer!” at the beginning of this track? The song is cute and fun, as she sings about the summer not being hot without her guy. Wink, wink.

2. So Many Details, Toro y Moi: This song is part of the chillwave genre, so it has a relaxing beat. The scenery in the video will make you want to take a relaxing vacation in The Carolinas.

3. Let the Groove Get In, Justin Timberlake: For those of you who know how to dance Samba, I envy you, because this song makes me want to dance the Samba. But I can’t do it properly because I don’t know how to. This song is perfect for an outdoor summer party with its festive beat.

4. Ride, Lana Del Rey: I’m not a big Lana fan but I heard this song for the first time during the Pretty Little Liars season 3 finale. It’s one of those songs you would listen to in your convertible with the top down letting the summer breeze take all your troubles away.

5. Move, CSS: Brazilian band CSS, acronym for Cansei de Ser Sexy (I’m Tired of Being Sexy), brings you a cool dance song that will get you moving at this summer’s backyard parties!

6. Trying to Be Cool, Phoenix: Because that’s all we’re trying to be this summer. Pop this French band’s tune on as you try to cool off in the air conditioning.

7. Fifteen (Oxford Remix), Goldroom ft. Chela: I love this song so much that it’s my alarm sound every morning. Chela sings in the first line “It’s been a long time, wondering why the summer smells like sin and wonder.” Indeed it does. And maybe we’ll never know why.

8. Hey Now, Candy Dulfer: What’s summer without a little bit of jazz? This song has the perfect balance of saxophone to make you wanna get groovy.

9. En la Obscuridad, Belinda: In English, the title would be “In the Darkness.” This song is so cute and the video is even cuter. We all know that one mysterious stranger we meet at a late night summer party that we want more from. This song will remind you of him.

10. I Need Your Love, Calvin Harris ft. Ellie Goulding: This mellow electronic song coupled with Ellie Goulding’s fresh voice is the perfect dose of exactly what we need this summer.

11. She Wants to Go, Something like Kites ft. Patrick: Who doesn’t want to go this summer? Here’s another great party song for your party playlist. The awesome guitar chords in this song will make you definitely want to party it up!

12. Como Te Vas, Trails and Ways: This song is from another Brazilian band. The title in English would be “How’s it Going.” The song is sung in Spanish instead of Portuguese. It has a very relaxing summer vibe to it with its smooth guitar.

13. Scratch, BG5: I heard this song for the first time when they were featured on Keeping Up With the Kardashians because Kris Jenner manages the group. The beat of this song is a lot of fun, just the way summer should be.

14. Don’t Stop the Party, Pitbull: Because none of us want this party called summer to end, so enjoy it with Mr. Worldwide’s festive song!

Have a fun and safe summer 2013 everyone!!

This Week in Music: Mike Tompkins’ “Shake the Ground”

Wednesday, April 24, 2013 was a big day for Mike Tompkins.

Why?Shake the Ground

The genius of a musician released his first original single.

ORIGINAL.

NOT A COVER.

For those of you who have yet to meet the Canadian YouTube phenom, I’ll show you what this guy is about:

Yeah. His voice is his instrument. Literally.

He does covers like this regularly. Most of the songs he remixes with his mouth are of the pop genre, including Demi Lovato, Rihanna, and even Owl City.

You can imagine how excited his fans were when they learned of his original single.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to song beats, since he can rely on his own instrumentation. So would he choose a ballad or something fast paced? Heavy base or loud snare? Vocals or instrumental?

I was itching to know. So I went onto Spotify and listened.

And I loved it.

At first I was kind of disappointed. I stared at my computer thinking, no, Mike Tompkins can do way more than just a chorus of “Oh”s and a steady snare.

And then the beat dropped.

He went electronic on us.

Holy crap, that was unexpected!

“Shake the Ground” is a song about what it feels like to be in the party scene, or even on stage, where the flashing lights transform you.

He sings, “Somehow I feel born again tonight.” The feeling of bursting out of your own skin to show the world who you really are shines through in the lyrics of this song.

This song should definitely be on your next party playlist.

“Shake the Ground” probably describes exactly how Mike Tompkins felt when he performed his original song at Playlist Live.

The lyric video features scenes from his performance at Playlist 2013. No word of an official video yet.

Have a listen here. I dare you to challenge his Skrillex-like capabilities!
