The Pura Vida Playlist: Winter Warmers

Glitter, bubbles and twinkling lights. There is a frisson of excitement in the air as December arrives. Perhaps because it heralds love, hope and playfulness!

Awolnation: Burn it Down Now this is not a new one on my playlist, but going through my post about the Amsterdam marathon made me remember what I was listening to at the time. And this song was on repeat that weekend. You might be able to tell I was a little pissed off. The anger helped fuel my run. I still like the song. AWOLNATION - Burn It Down Video of AWOLNATION - Burn It Down Gorgon City, ft. MNEK - Ready for your Love We also had the privelege of seeing MNEK last year alongside Rudimental (the same gig as Ella Eyre!). So we're fans. And...
