This weekend was even busier than last, with Oscars taking all of my attention. What a show, am I right?! Anyway, of the couple of new tunes that I had the chance to listen to were John Mayer’s second wave of tracks, Little Big Town’s new album and a new Zedd and Alessia Cara song.
Check out what was on my playlist this weekend below!
New week, new tunes.This Music Monday has a mix of pop, punk and compositions from Danny Elfman, as well as the return of artists like Lana Del Rey and Linkin Park.
Up first is Ryan Adams with his first LP of original material since his 2014 album “Ryan Adams.”
Ryan Adams – “Prisoner”
Praised by music critics, Ryan Adams’ 16th studio album is a delightful array of songs that lets you sit back and think about life – in a good way. Adams fans will rejoice in having 12 new tunes that they can listen to on repeat.
Fashion Week took over New York City from February 9 to 17. The top designers showcased their latest Fall and Winter collections – and Spring 2017 – which featured a lot of grey plaid, oversized sweaters and coats, suits and beautiful evening wear.
Below are highlights from a handful of collections, starting with my favorite: Oscar de la Renta and the house’s stunning pantsuits.
Oscar de la Renta Fall/Winter 2017
This past Friday, February 10, a slew of great music (in my opinion) was released! First pick has to be Katy Perry’s “Chained to the Rhythm,” which has been on repeat NON-STOP! She performed the single during the 2017 Grammys and killed it!

Lauren Alaina – “Road Less Traveled” album
Known as the runner-up on the tenth season of “American Idol,” Alaina released her sophomore album “Road Less Traveled” on January 27. The country singer describes the LP as having themes of self acceptance and love. “We are all different and that’s what makes us all beautiful. The album will reflect that further,” she told the Albuquerque Journal. “It will have some fun songs and sad songs – a little bit of what my life has been like over the past few years.”
Paris Couture Week took place January 22 to 26 and featured a slew of breathtaking looks and collections from the fashion industry’s top designers.
Exquisite pieces, glamorous ensembles, over-the-top and irresistible gowns and outfits overtook the runways. Among those that stood out for me were – of course – Dior and Valentino. I will continue to follow Maria Gracia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli’s designs, even if they are no longer working together.
