Finals Week Jams.

      Finals is officially upon me! Although I guess technically it has been upon me for over a week now. I have the strangest schedule this semester. Finals Week at my college doesn't start until this coming Tuesday, but after Tuesday I only have one exam (the following Monday). All of my exams, final papers, and projects were due last week and this week this year. It's nice because next week will be an easier week for me. I can instead give my focus to packing my room and doing important last minute things like mailing back my textbooks and getting my car serviced (and doing some last-minute shopping in Charlotte!). But it meant that this week was terrible for me. #TeamNoSleep haha!

      Since I didn't have time to prepare an outfit post for today, I thought that instead I would share some of the songs that have been at the top of my Spotify playlists lately. With all of the work that I've had to do, I've definitely been listening to more music than usual! If you've seen any of my past music review posts before, then you know that I have interesting music tastes. 90s/early 2000s pop music is my favorite, but I listen to everything from Top 40, Christian pop, Bollywood, Country, 80s music, Dance, Rap... etc. Look below to see what I've been jamming to lately!

Tove Lo - Talking Body (radio edit)

Zedd ft. Selena Gomez - I Want You To Know

Duran Duran - Come Undone

Shaggy ft. Mohombi - I Need Your Love

Londonbeat - I've Been Thinking About You

Dave Matthews Band - Crush (I could only find the accoustic live version on Youtube but I like the original!)

Lady Antebellum - Bartender

Hilary Duff - Sparks Fly (LOVE this song! Queen Hilary is BACK y'all!)

      What songs are y'all loving right now??

      Do y'all have any fun weekend plans? I'm excited because my sorority's annual formal, Black Diamond, is tomorrow night! It's no secret that I love any excuse to dress up. ;-) So this is always a fun event! 

      Also- I am participating in another loop giveaway on Instagram!! It's tonight- at 7 p.m. EST. Be sure you're following me @miss_alk!

  1. Love Bartender, I want you to know, and the new song by Shaggy. I think it's hilarious that he's making a comeback so many years after his first couple of songs.

    Enjoy your formal!

  3. In less than two weeks, my AP exams start. Two weeks after that my finals start, so I'll be needing to listen to this playlist as well! Good luck with finals :)


  4. I always thought we had a weird finals schedule and none of my friends at others universities had anything even close. The worst was having a final on the second or last day and having to wait which meant waiting to pack/move out etc.

    I'm LOVING Hillary's new song! I'm all about her right now because I love her show Younger, so good choice! Good luck with finals and have fun at Black Diamond!

  5. Yay I'm so excited Hilary is back! I have really been loving "I Really Like You" by Carly Ray Jepsen. I can't believe I just said that. But I love it haha. #guiltypleasures

  7. Wow. Thanks for sharing. My finals start on the 6th of May and I need to create a playlist like I always do. Thanks again for the suggestions

  8. Ahh, those are all great up beat songs! Thanks for sharing. :)

  9. Hilary has a new song?!! I can't wait to listen to it! Good luck with the rest of your finals, packing and all that! I'm on the quarter system so I'm in midterms right now. Eep can't wait for this year to be over!
