And now you are probably thinking “Yeah, but like I have Pandora.. so..” So? Delete it because you will no longer be needing Pandora’s services any longer! You have Songza now.

Think of Songza as your music concierge in the form of an app. When you open it you’re greeted with a screen that says, “It’s Thursday evening, play music for…” (or whatever the day and time may be), and then it gives you several options ranging from “Brand New Music,” to “A Christmas Party,” or “Putting on Your Party Dress.”

Let’s say you pick “Brand New Music.” The next page you see gives you a list of genres such as, “Today’s R&B,” “Brand New Playlists,” or “Today’s Biggest Hits.” You are feeling classy tonight so you pick “Today’s R&B.”

Now you are presented with the finely crafted playlists. Do you want “Modern R&B Dance Party,” “Tonight’s Slow Jams” or “Today’s Club Bangers?”

But you do not have to use the concierge if you do not want to. Maybe you just want to listen to Rihanna. All you have to do is search for Rihanna and Songza will present you with a plethora of playlists that include Rihanna and other Rihanna like artists. Songza allows you to search by “Activities,” “Genres,” “Moods,” and “Decades” because Songza is perfect and knows exactly what you want in your musical life. So go download it! It’s free! It works on IOS, Android, Blackberry and your computer.

The Ultimate Solution to Desktop Clutter

organizer

 

Organizing is honestly probably one of my favorite pastimes. Is that a little bit pathetic? Yes, I suppose so. But my house looks great and it saves so much time when I’m trying to look for something, especially when I’m in a hurry!

I found this great desktop organizer and plan on getting it to really improve some of the clutter that seems to accumulate on my desk. This includes a full-size keyboard that can be used on an iPad or other tablet.¬†There is a hidden storage area under the keyboard that can be used to hold post-its, pens, pencils, stamps, paperclips, rubberbands and more. This is also great because it’s portable, so you can take your desk with you where ever you go! If you travel a lot, this is perfect for you!
