Mixtape | Fall at Your Feet

I’ve been collecting music for this mixtape for awhile now and am pretty excited to share it with you all! Not gonna lie … it definitely got me through last week when I was feeling more exhausted than usual. It includes a lot of new stuff I’ve been into lately and is perfect for a morning jump start, if the slow key stuff isn’t cutting it for you on this Monday morning. Plus, Marina and The Diamonds ( two songs of theirs on this mix ) are pretty fun – can’t believe I hadn’t really heard them before. Feel free to listen + enjoy below … and cheers to a fresh new week!!

Mixtape | This Is The Sound | Breanna Rose

After many months of thought + continuing preparation, I’m ready to share a little ( BIG ) secret with you guys. You may think it’s weird that I’m choosing to tell you on a mixtape post, but I promise … there is meaning. For about a year now, I’ve had this never ending urge to take my business to the next level. And I know that sounds a little cliché because as creatives, we’re always wondering what’s next and making plans on how to move forward in the best way possible. But this time, I felt stuck. It’s always been a dream of mine to own my own business, and in a way, I’m doing that just fine, solo. But then it occurred to me : I need to create a base. A base that will allow me to expand in the future beyond just myself and my own name. 2014 is the year that I will launch my own studio with a completely new identity.

Not too much will change right away. I will continue working as I have been, as a freelance designer. There will be a new name ( it’s still a secret – sorry!! ) and a refined process, but my passion + niche will remain the same. I’m not sure when I will officially launch, as there is still much to do, but I promise you will be the first to know as it develops. This is my dream and I want to set the stage in the right way.

So that brings us back to this mixtape. Before I even created the moodboard for this project, I started a new playlist on Spotify entitled “brand.” There wasn’t a name yet, only a feeling I wanted to achieve. This mix expresses the brand experience I am hoping to create. It’s for a drive up north to the woods, filled with inspiration and forward movement. Feel free to listen + enjoy via the links below! I promise I will share much more in the coming months.

Mixtape | Dark Lights, Shine Loud | Curated by Breanna Rose

Well well well, happy Halloween everyone!! Since it’s a special occasion, I thought I would curate a special mix for the day … especially for those of you ( including myself ) who are working the day away. It’s always weird, isn’t it, when Halloween falls on a weekday. I want to be out celebrating and dressing up, but am also so tired from the past week. Since we’re finally in a house vs an apartment and in a neighborhood where children live, we plan on handing out candy for the first time!! I’m pretty pumped. Our front entrance is all decorated ( not pictured : huge black spider web + string lights and gravestones ) and perhaps we’ll even dress up. Walter the pup even has a costume. He’s going to be a blue dragon.

PS. I know this cover photo is a little bit creepy … but it’s All Hallow’s Eve and I just couldn’t help myself. Listen + enjoy the tunes below!

mixtape / female robbery

I had a small playlist going a few weeks back when I clicked on Spotify’s “start radio” button for said list. What ended up happening was me discovering a whole bunch of new tunes + artists, which was pretty neat! I’ll have to hit that button more often, huh?? The result of that adventure is this playlist, combining a few songs I pulled as well as new ones I’ve found. The tone is fairly slow, funky, and a little progressive – so great for a workday. I know this Wednesday is going to need a little pick me up, so that’s what this is for. Plus, the cover of “No Diggity” is awesome. Listen + enjoy below!
