    I'm still not used to this life of routine and consistency motherhood has given me. There are times I find myself aching for something new. Most every morning I wake up rubbing my slit-eyed face as Lila is jumping up and down telling me she's hungry. We do our routine morning shuffle. There are mornings the hot water just isn't boiling fast enough, I need something to help Lila and I get on the same level. I need to set a vibe. MUSIC. Lately, I've been obsessed with Ásgeir Trausti. I'm always a sucker for Icelandic, Swedish or Danish singer song writers. But where oh where will I find my next perfect mood stabilizer?

    While in Tulum we ate at a restaurant called Casa Jaguar and I fell in love with their whole situation. But most of all I fell in love with their playlist. I wanted to know who was responsible for the fantastic music I was hearing. I couldn't have gotten a better answer. It could all be found via their Spotify playlist, they have both a 2013 & 2014 list going. My favorite is the 2014 list but you make your own mind up. They frequently update both with new stuff and I really don't listen to anything else, except for of course my friend's "Shitty 2000s" list, but we'll save that for a rainy day. If you don't have Spotify you can still access the link, you'll just have to create an account. You can choose to go without paying and listen to ads every few songs. I'll jot down some of my favorite artists below nonetheless:
