If there is one thing that gets me to the gym it's a cute clothes... and a killer workout playlist.  I don't keep a ton of music on my phone but always keep my Soundcloud updated with my favourite tracks.

Since I prefer to lift heavy weights, I like music that's upbeat and pumps me up--often of the hip/hop and EDM variety.  So today I'm sharing what's on my current loop of songs that I play non-stop in the gym to keep me going.

Music after the jump...

I'm a big fan of using Soundcloud to stream my favourite music so I figured there must be a way to create a playlist that is separate from my favourites...and whadyaknow, there is!  

I've compiled a bunch of tracks that I currently have on repeat and that have been pumping since the warm weather arrived.  Some I'm almost sick of because I tend to kill tracks and some simply remind me of this season already.  Hope you enjoy.

On Wednesday afternoon, I left work early and went to Montreal to see The Weeknd in concert.  The show was awesome, the venue was really cool too and just going in itself was such a treat.  We stayed at the Mariott Resident Inn, which was within a short walking distance for the shopping we did on Thursday (more on that later).  For now, I'd love to share some photos with you...

Heading to MTL.

Concert outfit.
Outfit deets:  Zara dress & "Bekket" hi-tops.

Wednesday night: turkey dinner (I had just been craving it one day earlier!)  |  Shopping outfit for Thursday.

Lunch at Romado's (massive chicken plate for $9).

So exciting: I'm currently en route to Montreal to see The Weeknd in concert tonight! I cannot wait.  I have been a big fan for a few years now and unfortunately missed the chance to see him in my hometown when he was here in the summer, so this is a dream.  

I'm going with someone who is pretty awesome too, and a big fan, plus we're staying over night and going to go shopping tomorrow!  Eep!  So fun to get away for a night and just be care free.

If you don't know who The Weeknd is, he's a 22-year old (so young!) R&B singer from Toronto, Ontario, Canada who has been on a scene for a few years but is just starting to blow up (and if you're a Drake fan, guaranteed you'll like this one).  I could go on and describe his smooth voice or pensive vocals but instead I leave you with a few favourite tracks:

  The Weeknd - Trust Issues (Drake cover)


 Alainn Bella sweater (last seen here), Joe Fresh dress/skirt (last seen here),
Aldo wedges (last seen here), Mexx necklace & Bay ring

What kind of music do you like?  I'm a huge fan of hip-hop, rap, dance/techno, r&b and urban pop (in that order).  I was recently turned onto The Dream's (aka Terius Nash) new album (listen here; my fave is, 'Long Gone').  It. Is. So. Good.  Apparently it's somewhat dedicated to his ex-wife (that he cheated on) Christina Milian.  Have a listen, you will understand.

I often have a habit of killing tracks.  If I like a song, I will literally kill-the-track (aka play it over, and over, and over again until I can't stand it).  For instance, I have listened to the above track, oh, about fourteen times within the last two days.  Um.  Ya.

Here are a few other tracks I'm 'killing' at the moment:

* Black Eyed Peas - Someday
* Pitbull feat. Sean Paul - Shake Senora
* Kelly Rowland feat. Big Sean - Lay It On Me
* The Weeknd feat. Drake - The Zone
* Gums - Don't Give Up
* Remady - No Superstar


And this one which isn't available in a zippyshare just yet...

* yes, that's me as a child; check that hat & seal sweater.
...this track.  Morning, noon and night. (It's becoming an obsession, really).

We went out last night to a club in town where hubs' Best Man was DJ'ing.  I was able to get one lonely shot from the entire evening, and here it is.  Share-worthy, I thought.  The high-light of the night was probably hearing this song, which we'd never heard before (is that weird?) and hubs and I burst out laughing.  It was great.
