My Head is an Animal: A Winter Playlist


Hey y’all!

I hope you guys had a wonderful and blessed week! On Monday, we had a really big snow storm and we were in white-out conditions all day. Sounds awful, right? It was to an extent but it was also so beautiful and I wish that I didn’t have class because I could have curled up under a warm blanket with a steaming hot, sweet cup of coffee and a good book and I would have been the happiest lil’ camper around. Unfortunately, I had to lace up my duck boots and throw on a heavy jacket and trek through the arctic tundra I call my home just to learn about Microeconomics. That part was definitely gross. However, not everything about walking to class in sub-freezing temperatures was terrible. I had actually created the perfect playlist that just fits the mood of winter so well and I thought it would be fun to share it with you today!


First off, am I the only one who makes seasonal playlists? I may be weird but I love matching the mood of a season with music that just sort of fits. Winter is a favorite of mine especially for making these playlists because I adore slow, indie songs that seem like they should be playing off a vinyl in a cabin while you drink a warm cup of hot chocolate and watch the snow fall. I also enjoy a little kick of old country (don’t get me started on Johnny Cash, just don’t) for a little bit of fun and a different, but still fitting change. This playlist, particularly, captures such a wonderful mood and I always enjoy listening to it when I’m studying, blogging and trudging through the snow (and trying not to slip on ice) on my way to class. Please don’t hesitate to give it a listen!

  1.  Dirty Paws – Of Monsters and Men
  2. Cherry Wine – Hozier
  3.  Holocene – Bon Iver
  4.  Saturn – Sleeping At Last
  5.  Atlas Hands – Benjamin Francis Leftwich
  6.  Take Me Home, Country Roads – John Denver
  7.  Josh McBride – The Head and the Heart
  8.  Coffee – Sylvan Esso
  9.  All I Want – Kodaline
  10.  I See Fire – Ed Sheeran
  11.  Georgia – Vance Joy
  12.  Highwayman – The Highwaymen
  13.  Cardiac Arrest – Bad Suns
  14.  Winter Winds – Mumford and Sons
  15. The Girl – City and Colour

I can’t even begin to explain to you guys how many times I’ve listened to this playlist but trust me, it’s so beautiful and mellow. Let me know if you guys want more of these in the future because I really enjoy finding new music and stringing it together! Thank you for reading and please stick around, I have some very exciting things coming to my blogs future! Thank you for all your support and I look forward to hearing from you all soon!

Love Always,

  1. I love having playlists that match the season! I usually don’t really create my own since Spotify has such a wide range of playlists for every mood and time of the day. That way I also find my “new favourite song”.
    Love these pictures! Especially the first! So beautiful. 🙂

    1. I always take advantage of Spotify’s playlists! I love all of the acoustic/coffee shop sounding ones so much! Thank you so much for your kind words, I definitely put a lot of time into my photos this post so it’s nice to hear such great feedback from them! 🙂
