happy summer + a little party mix…



Happy Summer guys! Last weekend, I threw a surprise birthday party for Bob at Heirloom LA. It was such a great start to the summer—delicious dinner and great conversation outdoors with friends while celebrating his 35th birthday. Since summer kicks off (officially) today, I thought I'd share the mix I made for his party. It makes me feel like dancing everytime I listen to it. It's a mix of my current favorite jams with a few otehrs from my favorite music decade of all time…the 90's. It's a little cheesy, and a whole lot of fun. Click here to play my Summa Time Party Mix.

Also, please share your favorite summer songs with me. I want to keep adding to this mix for a Super Summa Mega Mix! Have a great weekend all!

  1. Nice list!
    For the summer, I’ve been listening to: ‘some place’ by Nick Waterhouse, ‘in the summertime’ by mungo jerry (classic!), and ‘party and bullshit in the USA’ which is a mashup between Miley and B.I.G. And, of course, ‘diane young’ by Vampire Weekend!
    Just fun songs that will make you wanna dance 🙂
