It’s Saturday! Happy weekend! To celebrate the weekend (and to give me some good jams while I pack up for my Cali trip on Wednesday) here are my songs from the week that have just kept me going. I’ve been so busy putting together two weeks of Everyday Enthusiasm, plus the regular life things, so I’ve needed stuff that’s going to keep me pumped up, even when I’m in dire need of caffeine.
Let Song Saturday begin!
5 Songs to Get You Through the Weekend

Somebody take me to a The Vamps concert, I beg of you!Read More
OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS GUYS! It’s been a year of me anticipating this, but the 5 Seconds of Summer self-titled album is finally out! Released yesterday on iTunes, it’s been on replay on my iPod because it’s pretty much musical genius! From reading the articles the boys (4 talented Aussie boys) have put out, they have put so much effort into this album and it definitely shows. I’ve been looking forward to sharing this review because of how much I’ve anticipated this album being released. When it released (9pm PST for me) I was in a car and containing my enthusiasm was a bit difficult. I mean, I am an enthusiast, enthusiasm cannot be contained!
So, please join me as I listen to the 5SOS album and share my thoughts with you all. And make sure to buy it to support these hard working, talented boys (that I may or may not be seeing in 50 days) by purchasing their album here.
“5 Seconds of Summer” by 5 Seconds of Summer
1. She Looks So Perfect
Many music critics have called this song the perfect song for summer, and I would have to agree. It’s catchy, has that perfect amount of rock, and the lyrics make you second guess and laugh. What more do you need in a summer hit? American Apparel is probably feeling like hot patootie after their name drop in the song, and I know I now have the overwhelming need to wear a diamond ring and board a plane! This song is everything that is fun and young and emotionally angsty enough for anyone under the age of 25. (It’s also Morgan’s dad approved.)
It’s time for my March guest post! I have been building up the excitement for this for a week or so now and I am so excited to finally share it! This month I am excited to bring you Haley from Her Mirror! Haley is a new friend on the blogging scene, but I have grown incredibly close to her in such a short time! She is my Blogging Little Sis and it’s been amazing working together with her on this post. You’ll learn quickly while reading this that we have a lot in common. I know you will all fall in love with her as you read, so make sure to leave her super sweet feedback! So, here’s Haley, the fabulous March guest blogger about to grace your screen!
What band has two million Twitter followers, sold out tours, toured with the world’s hottest boy band, and no album? 5 Seconds of Summer!
5 Seconds of Summer, a.k.a. 5SOS (five sauce) ~ an Australian rock band that has melted their way into our hearts and musical souls.
That’s it. We’re finally going to discuss the adorable Australian band that has officially reached VEVO status. Why? Because I am ridiculously baffled/proud of their success and I think it is time to discuss. This is also my blog and I like to discuss my enthusiasms.
Why 5SOS Should Be Your Favourite Band (And Your Favourite People on the Planet)
Earlier this week 5 Seconds of Summer released their first single. While 5SOS has released music before, this is their first actual single before their album release later this year. The single is called “She Looks So Perfect” and is responsible for American Apparel’s recent spike in underwear purchases. It is a bloody brilliant track. Give it a listen
