10 songs for confinement.
The 30 Day Song Challenge… in three posts
I’m sure those of you on Instagram have seen the “30 day song challenge” floating around for quite a while now, and it seems to have recently resurfaced due to this lovely period of confinement we’re all enjoying so. much!!! right now. Lol.
Well, rather than boring my Insta followers with a daily story (perso, I’m totally guilty of just skipping through all the challenges people are doing at the moment. I mean… un-muting the sound just to listen to a three-second snippet of a song? Um, forget about it, man.), I’ve decided to share my selection of thirty songs here. 10 at a time (3 posts in total), because my indecisive ass couldn’t settle on only one song for each category… I created a ‘lil hierarchy: first, the song that takes the cake and then a runner up. Wait, so I’m technically sharing twenty songs for confinement. Whatever.
I’ve selected songs which mean a lot to me on a personal level, some old, some new. I’ll admit I have pretty trashy taste in music guys (I’m all about the top 40, lmao), so I kinda doubt you’ll be discovering anything new here. But you never know? And some of these might be fun to revisit during quarantine, no?

(Oh, and as for the photo… that’s my third and newest tattoo, which I just had done at the end of January. I finally had time to snap a decent photo of it… here’s the artist’s Insta.)
This is a great idea! I saw the story on Instagram but I was too lazy to try to post something every day there, but having it in one blog post is a lot easier.
Isn’t it so much simpler this way?! I hope you’re well, Mai, sending all my love. XOXO!
I love how much Tay Tay makes it into this list! true classics of the era. Hope you’re keeping safe and well. Happy Easter! xx
Thanks, Lucy-Claire! And omg, Taylor is EVERYTHING. I hope you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy, too, sending lots of love! xx
