Pop That: Spring Break ’15 Playlist
Djali Brown-Cepeda might be the coolest 18 year old we know. She currently runs Family Swank on Mass Appeal, is a certified yogi and happens to be the cutest DJ ever! There is something so sweet and genuine about her–she doesn’t try to be anything, she just is. That’s why we thought Djali would make the perfect Spring Break playlist for our Galore Girls to party to, and we were right. There is so much fun waiting for you below!

After sifting through over 500 hours of music, I give you (*drum roll*) my Spring Break 2015 Playlist. No matter how you’re spending it—whether you’re going home where grandma is already making you freshly baked cookies because you were always her favorite, or are catching a flight to a sunny Caribbean Island where you’ll get completely wasted, hook up with a local hottie (power to the pussy!) and make (somewhat) questionable decisions—listen to these songs and shake it like a polaroid picture.
To all the unforgettable memories and embarrassing tagged photos that await us, Spring Break ’15, we salute you.

David Bowie is my spirit animal, and he should be yours too.
