Let’s be real: as a result of being tired and uninspired, I didn’t have a post for October. For some reason, I have been experiencing a serious lack of creative writing ideas lately. So, I decided to slightly avoid this blog… but that wasn’t one of my best ideas.
I made this space for a reason, and I want to update it once a month like I planned. But starting next month, I’m going to have photographs accompanying my song recommendations, rather than words. When I started Heliotropism, I wanted it to follow whatever creative flow seemed interesting to me at the moment. Why feel obligated to writing when a picture does say a thousand words, after all?
For now, here are ten songs that made for great companions during these past 2 months. Spoiler alert: I’ve completely fallen in love with Ariana Grande. “Thank u, next” is my new mantra for everything. Autumn has been the season of being grateful and moving on, babes!
- “Hypnotised” by Coldplay
- “breathin” by Ariana Grande
- “thank u, next” by Ariana Grande
- “It’s Not Living (If It’s Not With You)” by The 1975
- “You Know Me Too Well” by Nothing But Thieves
- “Shiver” by Maroon 5
- “Storms” by Fleetwood Mac
- “Ride” by Lana Del Rey
- “The Beach” by The Neighbourhood
- “Edge of Desire” by John Mayer
Enjoy the holiday season, y’all! Happy listening, and see you next month.
