Summer Playlist- Girl Mix

The last playlist this week is dedicated to songs for you and your girlfriends. It's perfect for road trips, getting ready, and always cheers you up when you need a little boost. Each song was chosen because they're fun and upbeat and are sung by some amazing ladies- many of whom I admire both for their talents, beauty, fashion sense, or accomplishments. 

Again, I'm sure there's tons of great songs I've left off, so PLEASE leave your favorite in a comment below! I'm hoping to add some really great songs this week, just in time for my first summer vacation.

Summer Playlist- Rap

This playlist is dedicated to rap (obvi from the post's title), which BTW was so hard to put together because a lot of artists work together on songs, so it was hard to figure out which artist to credit. So because of this, I'm sure some of these may be wrong, but I did look most of them up to be sure. I tried to choose songs that are old and new and just make you want to dance and have a great time or take you back to a fun memory (Hello spring break 2003 in Rosarito anytime I hear In Da Club by 50 Cent). Check out the Old School Playlist here in case you missed it.

This playlist is great for getting ready to go out, getting pumped in your car, or that magical ride into Vegas when you first spot the strip. Each song was picked because they get my blood rushing, my feet moving, and a smile spreads across my face because "my song" just came on. Or to yell out "rap video" and pour bottles and do a "tough" face for a picture and then laugh at how ridiculous it is.

Every list contains my favorites and I'm sure there's tons of great songs I've left off, so PLEASE leave your favorite in a comment below! I'm hoping to add some really great songs this week, just in time for my first summer vacation.

  1. Snoop Dogg- Ain't No Fun (If the homies can't get none)/Gangsta Luv/Gin and Juice/Nothin but a G Thing/Drop it Like its Hot
  2. R Kelly- I'm a Flirt/Go Getta
  3. MIMS- This is Why I'm Hot/Like This
  4. Fat Joe- Make it Rain (the remix is my fave, but both songs are great)/Drop/Lean Back
  5. Jay-Z- Big Pimpin'/99 Problems/Can I Get A.../Empire State of Mind/Jockin' Jay-Z/Young Forever
  6. 50 Cent- In Da Club/Just A Lil Bit/Magic Stick/Candy Shop/Shake that A**/PIMP/Disco Inferno/How We Do

Celeb Inspiration: Diane Kruger

Diane Kruger's style is one that nearly every woman adores. She's constantly pushing the envelope, trying new styles, wearing bright colors, etc while always looking elegant. She's a great example of trying something new and just going for it.  Her make-up is pretty minimal with some daring lips. I'm always in awe of her hair- she's constantly trying new things, keeps it pretty low key, and a lot of her looks are pretty easy to copy. Diane always looks chic with lots of European style.

Street Chic- Diane's casual style is very feminine, lots of skirts, girly colors, and easy breezy clothes. She's not afraid to wear hats too, which takes her look up a level, but still keeps her casual. Most women don't wear hats, but Diane shows us ways to wear them and still scream chic and girly. Just take a look at the bow in her side braid with the fedora towards the bottom- LOVE it!

Daring Sense of Style- Full skirts? Pounds of beads? Micro minis? Structured shoulders? Velvet? YES PLEASE! Diane is constantly wearing new trends and silhouettes. How many women can completely rock a long jumper or pant suit the way Diane does so effortlessly? Mmmmmmm... not many. Oh! Look at how she wowed with the harem pants- 1. who wears harem pants? 2. of those people, who wears them so chicly? I loved how she pulled them off, I would never dare to rock them.

Red Carpet- Diane is all over the board with changing hemlines, sheer fabric, colors, and amazing bags & shoes. She's one of my favorite stars to see on the red carpet just because of the diversity of her choices. I might not always like her picks, but commend her for never being boring (talking to you J.Aniston!).

My Favorite Looks- These are my the looks that have really caught my eye and forced me to learn the name of this gorgeous blonde. Each fashion choice looks great on her and I love her hair/makeup/accessories with each one. I would love to go shopping with her just to see clothes and outfits in a different and creative way. Diane is one chick who wears clothes as not just an expression of style but as art as well without being ridiculous. Isn't her hair gorgeous? I wish my hair looked as great as hers pulled back.

What do you lovelies think? What's your favorite look? What do you admire most about her style?
Any suggestions for future Celeb Inspirations? I'm already working on some future posts based on your suggestions, Diane was one of them!
