Life-changing Pandora Stations

“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent."

-Victor Hugo

I adore music. It is deeply embedded in who I am and the work I produce. It fuels the flame of my creativity, it serves as my inspiration, my motivation and my therapy. Below are a few of my favorite Pandora stations:

1. Madeleine Peyroux Radio

Born in Brooklyn, raised in California, Madeleine moved with her mother to Paris at age 13. She grew up playing the Ukelele, and her voice was compared to Billie Holiday by a New York Times writer (and they were right!) Madeleine Peyroux's Pandora station will fill you with drama, intrigue, sexiness, sassiness and more. The station moves through jazz legends - male and female - and leaves you feeling tingly all over.

2. Ben Rector Radio & John Mayer Radio

When you're needing some romantic lyrics where everything works out just perfectly or, on the opposite end of that, when you're needing to hear that you're not alone, and that bad things certainly do happen to good people, this station has you covered. It'll pull Gavin DeGraw and Phillip Phillips; Andy Grammer and Matt Nathanson. Full instruments, good lyrics, it leaves your heart feeling healed.

3. Yoga Radio & Heart Meditations Radio

The best meditation music you can tap into. It's calming use of eclectic sounds, piano, harp, acoustic guitar will sooth a raging or distracted mind. It makes you breathe slower and deeper. It slows you down to notice everything around you. It's glorious. You'll also get nature sounds and I dare you to try to be angry listening to the waves crashing against the shore with birds chirping in the background.

4. Brazilian Soul (The Jazzy Joint Mix) Radio

Get ready to move those hips because this station will seduce you. Pour some red wine, turn this station on, and move. It's perfect for cleaning your house because the beat stays joyful and scandalous. This station will also introduce you to international artists you may have never been exposed to, and they're fabulous.

5. Frank Sinatra Radio

Because, Frank Sinatra. Enough said.

6. 90's Pop Radio

Every now and then you need Oasis, Blind Melon, Semisonic, Sublime, and Blink-182. And when your heart craves Counting Crows and Ace of Base, this is home. It feels good, and warm, and welcoming.

7. Hip Hop BBQ Radio

When you need some quality R & B and Hip Hop, this is the station for a perfect BBQ party or just, for life. You'll get R. Kelly, Blackstreet, Juvenile, Ol' Dirty Bastard, Usher and Cam'ron. You'll be dancing even if you swore you weren't going to dance at this particular BBQ party.

8. Film Scores Radio

When you need to feel EPIC, this is the station will be your motivation entourage that follows you around knocking out task after task. It pulls the film scores from all of the big-time Hollywood hits, and the next thing you know, you're achieving literally everything you've ever wanted to in life.

9. Alabama Shakes Radio

It's jazzy. It's a flash of country. It's catchy. It goes straight to your sweet honey soul and lingers. Everyone has a story and a challenge, and this station will take you through it all. It's resilience, it's audacity, it's bravery will pump you up.

10. Beyoncé Radio, Rhianna Radio, Sia Radio

I come to these stations when I need to live like Beyoncé or when I need to collect money or be over-the-top dramatic. These stations get me exactly where I need to be mentally to make big things happen, FAST. No negotiations.

Alright, and now my guilty pleasure stations...

1. Taylor Swift Radio

I mean, how can you not listen to this? I've tried. I've tried to ignore it, but I can't. I always come back to it. In fact, Pandora told me yesterday that I've listened to 717 songs on my Taylor Swift Radio station. Thanks, Pandora. Throw it in my face.

2. Disney Radio

Because these songs - every single one of them - is QUALITY. And I still know all of the lyrics.

3. I Took A Pill in Ibiza Radio

Let's just... move on.

4. Broadway Radio

I need to belt it out sometimes about love, war, loss, grief, witches. There's a lot of traffic where I live.

5. Yacht Rock Radio

I live by an ocean and I date a Captain, so I'm on the water a lot. This station gives us all of the right navigational vibes.

Go and enjoy! Dance, sing, cry, groove, get stoked! Because these stations have got you covered no matter what you need to feel or accomplish or experience.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
