A Playlist Dedication // Summer 18/19

Hey friends. How are we?

Summer has officially come to an end here in Australia, but due to the warming of the globe, unpredictable weather, unreliable weather reports/apps and general nature of the way it all is here, the sun has been kicking it up into the next gear, meaning these last few weeks have been spectacular.

We had an incredibly rainy and wet end to 2018, but luckily 2019 showed it’s face with plenty of sunshine and great weather, which has in turn made me that much more optimistic towards this year and what it has to offer. The last three months have been fantastic weather-wise, which means I’ve actually been leaving my house. Yeah.

Also, this has been my first summer with a driver’s license that allows me to drive by myself, meaning I’ve found myself heading to my friends house, planning days out, going away and driving myself to the beach a heap more. It’s been fantastic. I don’t even regret the petrol it all costs, because it’s been without a doubt, worth it.

So with that said, I thought I’d do the first of what I’m hoping to be quite a few posts, a playlist dedication. I mean, my Rye//2019 playlist was the post that sparked the idea because I shared a playlist that I felt belonged to the trip and the getaway with some of my friends, so this is a playlist for this summer. I feel like I might even extend this post to people and places, rather than just times and experiences. Tell me what you think of the idea in the comments below.

The Soundtrack // Rye 2019

Hello, hello and welcome back to another post!

Today’s post is a short-ish one, but one I love a lot. Over the 24th to the 26th, six of my friends and I took a 50 minute drive out of Melbourne to Rye, a popular coastal town in Victoria. We packed the cars with bathers, drinks and board games and hit the road.

It was a really easy drive, considering we left early on the Sunday morning. Because our AirBnB wasn’t available until 2pm that day, we stopped at Sorrento, where one of the boys in our group had his family’s holiday house and spent a little while there. The walk over to the beach was a short and effortless trip across the road, and the few hours we spent at Sorrento beach were incredible. We played beach frisbee, lay in the sun, listened to music and laughed plenty.

Once the AirBnB was ready, we made our first stop at the super-market to pick up food for the stay, before heading to the house, a beautiful little three bedroom, two bathroom AirBnB with the perfect kitchen and dining area for us to dump our things.

The Monday, the one full day we had in Rye, was one of my favourite days of the year. We made the short drive to Blairgowrie, where we walked down amongst the rock pools to get to a deep, blue, beautiful rock pool sitting beneath a huge rock, perfect for jumping off, which is where we spent majority of the day. It was such a beautiful day, the weather was perfect, the water was the bluest I’ve ever seen and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The rest of the day was spent making another stop at the supermarket, an hour or so at another back beach then back to the house for games and drinks.

The following day was a rush of getting the AirBnB clean and out of the house by 10am, with a pit stop for mini golf and fish and chips for lunch on the way home.

 

Music was constantly playing in Rye.

 

As soon as we were up in the morning, the UE Boom was on and it provided the perfect soundtrack for everyone to wake up one by one and come into the kitchen to the smell of bacon and eggs. While we all got ready for the day and drove to the beach, a selection of songs became very prominent for me personally, and of course our games and drinks late into the evening were partnered by the portable speaker sitting on the kitchen table behind us.

Very Specific Pt. 15

Hello everyone! Hope you’ve all been well. Welcome back to another very specific post, one of my favourites to share with you all!

I finally got my license this year, meaning I’m able to drive on my own now, and one of the things I’ve done once and once only, yet am still exciting to do more of, is driving to the beach to just park and listen to music. It sounds way deeper than it is, but it was a fantastic hour of my life.

By all means, maybe don’t play it though your car the whole time, like watch out for the battery, but if you find yourself with a moment at the beach, here’s a playlist of songs, specifically made to listen to in your car on the beach.

Skeletons – Yeah Yeah Yeah
Water On The Bridge – Chelsea Cutler
Home – Dotan
One More Time – Jon Bellion
Watch – billie eilish
Sincerity Is Scary – The 1975
Smoke Too Much – JOY.
Easily – Bruno Major
Feels Like Summer – Childish Gambino
Who Hurt You? – Daniel Caesar
Camped – RINI
comethru – Jeremy Zucker
Sunday Vibes – Masego, Medasin
Have You Ever Been (To Electric Ladyland) – Nai Palm
Adult Swim – Jon Bellion, Tuamie
Jungle – Tash Sultana
Red House – Jimi Hendrix
Once – Maren Morris

Let me know what you thought of this list! I’d love to know if you have any recommendations, let me know in the comments!
