Music is more than just instruments and vocals, a rhythm and noise. It’s something that’s all around us, whether we find it in the birds chirping, the sound of a baby cooing, or even in the chaos of a big city. Music inspires and heals, and it also brings people together. Brandon and I met at a wedding reception, and I can still remember that “Uptown Funk” was playing. I also remember the song that played during our first kiss. Music gives us memories to hold on to. Sometimes they’re happy and sometimes they’re sad, but they’re always beautiful because they’re part of our story. It’s poetic in a way. For me, music was a huge part of the healing process when I was struggling with depression. At the time, I was really inspired by lyrics and the impact they could have on my mood. I took musical theatre for 6 years and it was the one place I could say felt like home during high school. It’s incredible the way it can change our lives for the better.
I asked Brandon to describe his music taste, and this is what he told me: “My love for music actually stems from the golden age of hip hop. It’s when I learned to actually be really passionate about music for the first time. My brother introduced me to it and from then on it was just something I absolutely loved.” You can find Brandon’s #NowPlaying playlist right here!
As far as my music tastes? Well, I love just about any kind of music there is. It’s something that’s so incredibly healing. So whether I wake up and start listening to an instrumental track to get a comfortable start to my morning, or I’m blasting Lady Gaga’s newest album, there’s always something playing because it truly makes me feel alive.

Because music is such a huge part of both my life and Brandon’s, I was thrilled when Sudio Sweden reached out to collaborate with us as a couple. Sudio creates earbuds which possess studio quality sound in a chic design. I have worked with them in the past, and loved their product so much, that it was a no-brainer to work together again! They sent Brandon and me two pairs of their Sudio Vasa Blå models. These headphones are wireless – perfect to use with the new iPhone 7 – and come with multiple in-ear sleeves (which works out well for my tiny ears). My favorite part? Their anti-tangle cable, which allows me to easily throw them into their sleek, leather pouch or my pocket with no concern of taking a decade to unravel them when I pull them back out! You can purchase these fantastic earbuds for 15% off using my code “SheSawStyle” and I promise you won’t regret it! These would also make a wonderful Christmas gift!
While our music tastes might be incredibly different, I’m grateful that we both love it so much. No matter where we go or what we do, there’s a song on that keeps us moving and grooving together. If you ever pull up next to us at a stoplight, there’s a very high probability that you’ll find us dancing in our seats or singing at the top of our lungs. Tell me a story of how music has changed your life for the better or brought you closer to someone!
