On Repeat in 2014

Listening to Music with Paperchase Earmuff Headmuffs

Music's a funny thing. As little as a few notes in sequence can remind you of another time and place. So I thought I'd share the songs that I've been playing over and over this year. Whenever I hear them, they'll always remind me of some immortalised moment. Memories such as...

The Memory: Copying Bruno Mars' dance moves with my roomie, Michelle. From the comfort of our couch we shimmied the night away and harmonised to this song as well as his back catalogue.
The Song: Uptown Funk, Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars

The Memory: Near-yelling the lyrics and getting more than a little teary. I was operating on about 4 hours of sleep, was a ball of stress, and getting buried alive an ever-increasing pile of college assignments. Wallowing in self-pity, this song was the only thing keeping me sane.
The Song: Like I Can, Sam Smith

The Memory: Jogging along the boardwalk of Ocean City, beside the sea and under a newly-risen sun. Pure bliss.
The Song: Liberate, Eric Prydz

The Memory: Going back and forth, behind the camera and in front of it, taking selfies for my blog. Also, writing up many a blog post. I don't know why but I binged on this song while I blogged this year.
The Song Emily, Lower than Atlantis

The Memory: Spending hour after hour editing photos for my final photography project of my degree. My second home was the Photography Mac Labs and with my headphones on I was in my own world.
The Song: I Wanna Feel, Secondcity

The Memory: Another early morning, on the bus, heading to uni to get stuff done. Public transport's not that bad when your headphones are plugged in.
The Song: Easy, Porter Robinson

Also, can we take a moment to appreciate how cute these headphones are?! They look like earmuffs, they are cosy like earmuffs... Okay they are earmuffs... But they are also headphones! They're from Paperchase and they are utterly adorable! Thanks to my lovely grandma for giving them to me for Christmas!


  1. Those earmuff/ear phones are seriously the best! This was such a lovely post to read - it's so amazing how music can evoke such strong memories.

  5. I am totally the same, I listen to songs on repeat for so long I always end up associating them with a time period! It is a nice way to reminisce though :) Hope you have a fab New Year! x
