DJ martina on the ones & twos

I’m probably not someone who should give musical recommendations but guess what I’m here today with. Well, maybe not recommendations, per say. More like what I have on repeat lately. I feel like I should put it out there from the get-go: As of late, I can’t handle the regular radio. I like to listen to my local morning show…

bedroom concerts

I can’t dance. I mean, I can, but I suck. Except when I’m home, alone in my room. Then, I’m JLo. My best performances come when I’m supposed to be getting ready.

One Direction, a little BSB, and Band Aid

So, One Direction’s new album, Four, was released on Monday and it is AWESOME! It isn’t like anything they’ve released before. All of the boys have had a hand in writing the songs on this one. Most of all, Louis and Liam. I don’t know how to even begin to review the album, as this is not Rolling Stone. Luckily,…

martina’s (british invasion) mixtape

This post has nothing to do with Blogtober but I don’t have to be at work until 2pm tomorrow so I have some time to whip up a quick bonus post. When I’m working on the computer I like to have something playing. I usually have my television on for background noise and then I have my favorite Youtubers to…
