Music is always a good spark to the flame of inspiration and motivation. Anytime I hear one of my favorite songs it makes me want to jump up, pack a bag, and go wherever the wind takes me.

  3. Mr. Blue Sky by Electric Light Orchestra
  4. Coffee by Sylvan Esso
  5. Dress by Sylvan Esso

    I love Sweet Disposition by Temper Trap! I was fortunate enough to see them in concert at Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco. I love Biffy Clyro. Usually my blog trips happen to coincide with one of their tours….coincidentally of course. 🙂

      That’s amazing! I’m so jealous you have seen Temper Trap! I’ve heard Black Chandelier by Biffy Clyro. I love it! I’ll have to give them a listen! How lucky that your trips coincide 😉 haha
