If there’s one color that sums up Summer for me, than it must be mint green. This color always reminds me of tropical islands and white sands. Whenever I put on a mint green colored polish on my nails, it gives me an instantly holiday boost.
And the best news? Mint green looks gorgeous with almost any skin tone and matches fabulous with simply white, navy, pastels (like baby pink) and beige. But mint green looks also stunning with more bright colors like coral!

Being a teenager is definitely not easy (and thankfully I’m over that period). From time to time this lifetime can be pretty difficult and confusing, especially when it comes to teenage love. There’s nothing more exciting, passionate, intense than a teenage romance. But it can also be very confusing as well, think about all those mixed emotions that you experience! These emotions are all covered up in the new single ‘Kill The Lights’ of the alternative/ rock band The Dirty Jacks.
They describe the track ‘as a song about teen angst and the roller coaster of emotions you feel when finding love; as fun and exhilarating as the journey can be, it inevitably comes to an end – a night of passion can quickly fade away as the sun rises.’

Last year around October, the British band The 1975 released their impressive self-titled debut album ‘The 1975‘. There are many great song that you can find on this cd, but ‘Girls’ must be my favorite. This song is indie pop at his finest. ‘Girls’ has the sound of a 80’s pop song, awesome electro (pop rock) sounds and not to even mention that sexy British accent… It’s hard not to press the repeat button when you’ve heard ‘Girls’ for the first time. It’s pretty addictive, for real.
This song screams ‘Summer’. I can totally imagine myself already right now, laying on the beach, while relaxing and listening to ‘Girls’. How nice that would be. I know what my summerjam ’14 will be.
As a proud Dutchie, of course I needed to feature The Common Linnets with their song ‘Calm After The Storm’ as this weeks Happy Music Monday song. This duo were the Dutch entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 in Copenhagen. For all other Europeans who also watched last Saturday’s final, probably noticed how outstanding this performance was.
It was quite simple: the song includes only 3 chords and incredible vocals of Ilse Delange and Waylon. The Common Linnets brought real music back in the game. Unfortunately they didn’t won, but still they made it to the second place. Which is an incredible achievement for The Netherlands!!
The Netherlands has proved it: Less is more! Great job Ilse and Waylon!
