I mentioned in January’s post that the month moved at a snail’s pace. February was the complete opposite – it definitely feels like this month whizzed by!
A new month meant new music for me. One of my favourite artists and a playlist regular Raelynn released a new single ‘Keep Up’. I’m surprised I’ve been listening to anything else throughout February, it’s such a country jam, I definitely recommend.
I don’t normally listen to whatever genre you’d place Wiz Khalifa into, but his feature on a song ‘High Right Now’ is a new addition. There’s also all the usual suspects: Green Day, Taylor Swift and The 1975. Kelsea Ballerini is also popping up more frequently these days, I’m excited for her new EP to come out so I’m acquainting myself with her latest single releases.
Enough of me wittering on, here’s the tracklist and playlist below for you all to peruse. Take a listen, you may find a new favourite song!
Tracklist: 1. Getaway Car – Taylor Swift 2. Keep Up – Raelynn 3. homecoming queen? – Kelsea Ballerini 4. Messy – Fifth Harmony 5. Mayday – Cam 6. High Right Now – Tyla Yaweh, Wiz Khalifa 7. Weather With You – Crowded House 8. Slow Dance In A Parking Lot – Jordan Davis 9. Señorita – Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello 10. Jesus of Suburbia – Green Day 11. Somebody Else – The 1975 12. Whistle (While You Work It) – Katy Tiz 13. Good Times – Roll Deep, Jodie Connor 14. Dress – Taylor Swift 15. club – Kelsea Ballerini 16. No Pride – Green Day

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these monthly music round-up posts, but as you can probably imagine, not a lot has changed. I’ve listened to a couple of new songs, but all by the same people as usual.

Let’s be real here – Christmas cards are a hassle to send every year. Having a pile of cards and envelopes higher than the Eiffel Tower, getting pen smudges everywhere and ending up with a severed tongue from sealing all the envelopes.
Enter Paperless Post. It lets you send cards, invitations and a lot more over email so you can connect with your loved ones and invite them to a Christmas party or other gathering without spending money on 500 stamps and only using 20. The video below shows the plethora of options available for customisation.
To design a premium card (there are a few free options) you have to buy coins, which can be bought in packs – they’re really affordable and cost less than a pack of stamps, which is great value. (For full disclosure: I was very kindly gifted some coins from Paperless Post to create and send a card).
Once you’ve decided on a card or event invitation, they are fully customisable to fit your brand – you can even upload your own logo. There’s options to change the backdrop of the item you’re sending, add motifs for Christmas, Graduation or another special event that your family/clients/favourite people will be attending.
There is also an opportunity to customise the envelopes of your card or invitation, not something you get to do when buying cards in a shop. You can choose the envelope colour (there are some really cool ones, including rose gold), and even the postmark can be changed to your city or state (in the US, I’m hoping they’ll bring out UK ones soon! 🤞🏻).
After designing the envelope, it’s time to choose your special recipients. All you have to do is enter your name and their names and emails, it’s literally as simple as that. You can even upload your entire address book and send it to them in one go. A free preview can be sent to your email to make sure it looks perfect before sending to your loved ones/friends.
Much like Blue Peter, below is the preview of a card I made earlier that will be sent to all of my podcast participants, so you can see what it looks like when sent.
The best part about sending a card is that you can schedule delivery. So for example with my card, it would be too early to send it, so I would schedule delivery for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, but an event invitation or something similar could be made ahead of time and scheduled to send whenever you want.
Sending cards also costs coins, but the total cost of the card is displayed to you transparently throughout the process, with no nasty fees or dodgy charges that you don’t remember paying for.
I would definitely recommend Paperless Post for sending cards or invitations, as they are fully customisable and a reasonable price for sending them over the Internet – no more paper cards and envelopes, so it’s also more environmentally-friendly than the cards that just go to landfill by New Year.
Even better: they even have a mobile app, so you can design and send cards on the go! Find out more on the App Store.
