Monthly Mixtape // Mellifluous: Sweet and Cute Songs

musical hufflepuff

Monthly Mixtape is a music feature created by Eve @ Twist in the Taile and Evi @ Adventuring Through Pages (check out their blogs!!). Each month they come up with a one-word prompt as inspiration for a playlist.


mellifluous, adjective: 1 : having a smooth rich flow 2 : filled with something (such as honey) that sweetens

Unfortunately I missed last month’s mixtape, but when I saw this month’s theme I was DETERMINED not to miss it. It’s just so sweet and cute?? That’s also what I went with when picking out songs. So I ended up with a lot of love songs lol.


What kind of songs or music do you think of when you hear ‘mellifluous’? Any songs on my playlist that you like? Let me know in the comments!


Monthly Mixtape // Petrichor

Monthly Mixtape is a music feature created by Eve @ Twist in the Taile and Evi @ Adventuring Through Pages (check out their blogs!!). Each month they come up with a one-word prompt as inspiration for a playlist.


petrichor, noun: a pleasant smell that frequently accompanies the first rain after a long period of warm, dry weather.

I absolutely love the word ‘petrichor’ and its meaning. The songs I chose I find really relaxing, positive and/or hopeful in their messages, which is how I imagine petrichor would sound as a mixtape.

I love that last time Hayley Kiyoko dominated my playlist, now it’s Troye Sivan’s turn

How do you imagine petrichor would sound like? Any songs popping into your mind? Did I include one of your favourite songs? Let me know in the comments!


Monthly Mixtape // Schwarmerei

Monthly Mixtape is a music feature created by Eve @ Twist in the Taile and Evi @ Adventuring Through Pages (check out their blogs!!). Each month they come up with a one-word prompt as inspiration for a playlist. I meant to do it last month, but since I was so out of blogging I completely forgot about it.


schwarmerei, noun: excessive and unbridled enthusiasm or sentiment

Sooo throughout the past few weeks I’ve just been adding songs that I thought fit the prompt to this playlist – which means I got 37 songs on here lol. It got a bit out of hand haha. It was SO HARD to choose though! All of these songs are such bops and definitely shout ‘schwarmerei’* to me

* It’s a really cool word but SO HARD TO SPELL

What song immediately pops into your head when you hear ‘schwarmerei’?* Do you listen to any of the songs on my playlist? Are you participating in Monthly Mixtape? Let me know in the comments!

* Or read the definition of it anyway haha

8tracks Playlist to Listen to While Studying

It’s time for that one dreadful time a year: exams. Here in The Netherlands seniors in secondary school (including one of my best friends) are studying their asses off for their final exams. When I took mine last year I found out that apparently May is the month for exams and a lot of people around the world are also studying their asses off, so I decided to share some playlists that I love to listen to while studying.

study mix

hit books

study like a timelord

disney way

studying disney

kpop study hogwarts library  slytherin studying


What kind of music do you listen to while studying? For me it depends. If I’m making a summary I’ll listen to kpop, if I’m actually trying to get things inside my head I’ll either listen to nothing or playlists like the ones above. Anyway, let me know in the comments!

8tracks Playlists You Should Listen To

I already loved 8tracks, but lately I feel like I’ve been obsessed with the website/app. I already shared some playlists I listened to during NaNoWriMo and those are of course among my favourites too, but I won’t repeat them. I decided to share some of my favourite playlists, but when I was looking at the ones I’ve saved so far, I found that I had a hard time choosing, so there will be multiple posts! I think this will be a monthly thing, but I’m not sure about that yet.

We all need a Disney playlist in our lives. Don’t deny it.

This playlist is so nostalgic oh my god every time a new track starts to play I gasp and grab my chest because the childhood feels.

Ace Attorney has the best soundtrack ever okay. Even if you’ve never heard of the games, go listen to this playlist.

Do you guys know how hard it was to choose a favourite K-pop playlist? And I still failed as there are four on this list. Expect a lot more in the next posts.


THIS PLAYLIST. IT’S PERFECT. OH MY GOD. Whether you’re a Hufflepuff or not, you should listen to it. This playlist just sums up my headcanons and feels about my House. It makes me want to create my own Puff playlist (which I will. Hopefully soon)

This playlist sums up The Golden Trio perfectly. I love it.

It’s just really good okay, trust me.

I’ve been listening to this one on repeat lately

I just discovered this one as I was putting this post together and am currently listening to it. Oh my Wizardgod it’s perfect.

Okay so there are all kinds of playlists in this one, from Disney to games to Harry Potter to K-pop. Maybe future posts will have a theme. What do you guys think about that? And do you use 8tracks? What’s your favourite playlist? Do you make any yourself? Leave a link to your profile in the comments so I can check out your playlists in that case!


My Favourite Playlists During NaNoWriMo

So instead of actually working on my novel, I decided to blog! (note: this is written on Friday, so hopefully I’m writing while you’re reading this!)

Except it’s not really procrastinating (ssh hear me out!). I haven’t written that much this week (more about that on Sunday in my wrap up) and while I wanted to catch up today, I’m really tired. I tried writing and I got to 61 words… BUT IT’S BETTER THAN NOTHING RIGHT?!


So I decided to share with you some playlists that I’ve been listening to so far (and that I absolutely love). The first four are all playlists on 8tracks, the last one is on Youtube: entire Badlands album in one video! Basically it’s perfect. The first three playlists are all based on Throne of Glass and they’re so good. They also fit the the tone of my novel and they’re just nice to listen to while writing. Click on the pictures to be directed to the playlists!

Even if you’re not writing, I definitely suggest you check them out! Especially the first three if you’re a ToG fan. They fit the books so well!

What music or playlists are you listening to during NaNo? Or while writing in general? Let me know in the comments!
