Sara Bareilles

Ah, Sara Bareilles. My home girl. A wonderfully versatile singer and songwriter, Bareilles has an incredibly diverse repertoire--particularly for when you need to get in touch with your emotions. Check out this list to find a specific song for when ya really need it!

1. Chasing the Sun

Album: The Blessed Unrest

Favorite Lyric: And the gift of my heartbeat sounds like a symphony/played by a cemetery in the center of Queens

When to Listen: If you are ever looking for a great motivator, this song is perfect! It's a great 'Carpe Diem' tune.

2. She Used to Be Mine

Album: What's Inside: Songs from Waitress

Favorite Lyric: She is Messy/But She's Kind

When to Listen: Honestly, this is my go-to cry song. It'll really getcha. It's a song that explores what it's like to lose sight of yourself. (PS: Waitress is an absolutely incredibly musical wow)

3. Little Black Dress

Album: The Blessed Unrest

Favorite Lyric:Get up off my knees and just remember that I am/ More than just somebody's puppet I can/ Find the cord and then I'll cut it I stand/ A pretty good chance to dust myself off and dance

When to Listen: Rough break-up? Just want to get over a boy? Perfect. Break out that little black dress, girl.

4. I Choose You

Album: The Blessed Unrest

Favorite Lyric: Let the sun fade out to a dark sky/ I can't say I'd even notice it was absent/ 'Cause I could live by the light in your eyes

When to Listen: This is such a cute love song--just a nice, feel-good, I-love-love type of song.

5. Between the Lines

Album: Little Voice

Favorite Lyric: Leave unsaid unspoken/ eyes wide shut unopened/ You and me/ Always between the lines

When to Listen: We've all had those 'almost' relationships--and they suck. This song gets it: it may not be a break up when they fizzle out, but they still hurt.

6. Uncharted

Album: Kaleidoscope Heart

Favorite Lyric: Jump start my kaleidoscope heart/ love to watch the colors fade/ They may not make sense/ But they sure as hell made me

When to Listen: Some of life's happiest moments happen when we step out of comfort zones--this song is all about exploring new things!

7. Bright Lights and Cityscapes

Album: Once Upon Another Time

Favorite Lyric: I'm the paper and you're the pen/ You fill me in and you are permanent/ And you'll leave me to dry/ I'm the writer and she's the muse/ And the one that you always choose/

When to Listen: Unrequited love. Ugh: it's painful, it's confusing. It's tough to love someone who loves someone else.

8. A Soft Place to Land

Album: What's Inside: Songs from Waitress

Favorite Lyric: When your breaking point's all that you have/ A dream is a soft place to land

When to Listen: This is top of my list for easy listening. It's a chill, relaxing melody with a nice message.

9. King of Anything

Album: Kaleidoscope Heart

Favorite Lyric: I'm not the one who's lost with no direction/ But you'll never see/ You're so busy making maps with my name on them in all caps/ You got the talking down, just not the listening

When to Listen: LADY. ANTHEM. Ever just want to dismantle the patriarchy? Now's your chance!

10. Red

Album: Careful Confessions

Favorite Lyric: Made my mistakes, and did a few things right/ But it will take what it will take, baby that's life/ You cannot change what you do not own, everybody knows/ But if you live deep and love strong you get pretty damn close/

When to Listen: We all make mistakes, but that's how we learn: this song is all about growing up and making mistakes and becoming better because of it.

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
