It's Still You EP - Out Now + GIVEAWAY!

it's still you ep hayley solano
I'm so thrilled to announce my first EP, "It's Still You" is out now!

It’s Still You is a small collection of songs that tell the story of how it feels when your heart relentlessly pulls you back to the same person. It’s a peek into the pages of my diary, a glimpse of my dearest memories, and a piece of my heart. 
As I reflect on the creation process of these songs - from the very first sparks that flew to the days I spent in the recording studio last summer - I’ve come to realize something I’ll never forget: 


Whether we’re on cloud nine or longing for the courage to tell someone we love them, we’re supposed to feel the way we feel. There’s no use in being afraid of what our hearts tell us. 

I hope these songs remind you of the things in life you simply couldn't live without, the ones that still make your heart light up after all this time. I hope you're reminded to cherish and celebrate those special things because one day you might wake up wishing you had. But most of all, I hope these songs inspire you to have the courage to listen to what your heart tells you. ❤️ 
Listen: Spotify |  Apple Music |  iTunes





Let me know if you're listening! Leave a comment with your favorite song off the EP to be entered to win a physical copy :)

What My Heart Beats For | No. 2

valentines day

Hello friend! You may recall I introduced a new post series last month titled, "What My Heart Beats For." As it is the month of February & Valentine's Day is tomorrow (!!!), I'm particularly excited to share what I've been loving lately. 


What My Heart Beats For


1. Thrift stores. I recently went thrift shopping downtown with my little sister and good friend  - we came upon SO many nostalgic treasures! That afternoon is easily one of my favorite 2017 memories so far.
2. Sugarfina candies (especially this time of year). 
3. Z: The Beginning Of Everything. I watched every episode of this series on Amazon and was so mesmerized by Zelda Fitzgerald's glamour and strong will. 
4. The Best of Mandy Moore album. There's not much more I can say. 
5. Kisses in the rain. 
6. Moments in life that feel as though they came right out of a movie. 
7. Meeting for coffee. 
8. The feeling of finding the perfect gift for someone.
9. Red lipstick. 
10. Valentine's Day of course! ❤️

I would love to hear what your heart has been beating for lately. Wishing you the most magical Valentine's Day!

Hello, February + Valentine's Giveaway

valentines day giveaway
Oh February, you're finally here! For as long as I can remember, February has always been my favorite month...admittedly due to the arrival of Valentine's Day. As a hopeless romantic, my heart always lights up during the time of year when heart-shaped everything is everywhere and I have a viable excuse to celebrate  l o v e.

February makes me nostalgic for the days I would bring a shoe box to school to adorn with glitter and fill with sweet cards from my classmates. It takes me back the porch step of my first boyfriend's house where he gave me my very first real Valentine's gift, the sweetest little teddy bear that made my teenage heart skip a beat. It makes me think of the people I adore most. But most of all, it makes me excited to think of ways I can make their 14th of February a little sweeter.

Over the years, I've found most of us have strong feelings about Valentine's Day. Some allow this holiday to make them feel sad if they aren't in love while others make extravagant plans with their loved ones. I've come to realize the reason I adore Valentine's Day so much is because I've never associated it with an expectation of any kind. I love this day because it gives me an excuse to celebrate all kinds of love. 

That being said, I've been so enjoying browsing through Valentine's cards and picking out favorites for those I adore as well as the lovely people who have sent sweet notes to my P.O. Box! I can't wait to send them out, celebrate, and make memories this 14th of February.

What do you love most about Valentine's Day? Share your favorite thing about this holiday to be entered to win the adorable "P.S. I love you" trinket dish pictured above ❤️

What My Heart Beats For | No.1

Hello dear friend! Today I'm welcoming the first installment of a new post series titled, "What My Heart Beats For." From cupcake recipes to songs that bring me back to another time and place, these posts will detail, as the title suggests, what my heart beats for.

I couldn't be more thrilled winter is in full-swing and 2017 has arrived. This morning I sat down with a cup of hot chocolate and (snowflake) marshmallows to reflect on recent special moments & inspirations I've experienced.

What My Heart Beats For


1. Moments shared with my little sister, singing 80's boyband music in the car.
2. The box of old things I kept from high school (love letters & embarrassing pictures included).
3. Grey's Anatomy. I'm just starting the 3rd season & am already grieving the loss of characters I know will inevitably be leaving the show via Tumblr spoilers. 
4. Everything glittery. These days, if it's sparkly, chances are I'm  o b s e s s e d  with it. 
5. The excitement of new beginnings: when you know something wonderful is about to happen, but you have no idea what it may be.
6. The Sugar Paper gift wrap collection at Target.
7. Hidden Gems. 
8. Going out to breakfast in the morning (and the moment you convince yourself the chocolate muffin won't be that bad for you). 
9. Open-mindedness.
10. The rewards that often come along with escaping your comfort zone ❤️


What has your heart been beating for lately?
