Music and How It Moves Me #SeHablaMusica

Disclosure: I received one of the products mentioned below for the purposes of this post. All thoughts are my own.

se habla música, target latin music

Content and/or other value provided by our partner, Target.

I can’t remember the first time I heard music… but I do remember the first album I ever owned. I was no more than 6 years old and I had hijacked it from my mom’s record collection. I had a little plastic Fisher Price record player, and I would listen for the coast to be clear. Then, I would get Michael Jackson’s Off the Wall album out of it’s massive cardboard record holder, and place the needle down on song #2 and start swinging and dancing “Girl…close your eyes…”

My love of music has remained and I developed a taste for music of all kinds. Lately, my love has been the beautiful rhythmic latin music. From Shakira to Jesse y Joy, my ears know what they like and I still swing around my bedroom to each and every melody.


What better way to envelope myself with the magic of music than by tuning the rest of the world out with a pair of amazing, crystal clear headphones. Emilio Estevez’s Sound Machine by Monster is just the pair to take me away on a musical adventure.


They are noise cancelling, sturdy yet soft on my ears and when I wear them, it’s like my own private concert wherever I am. Plus, I kinda look awesome in them.


With headphones like these, every note, beat and melody is dancing in your eyes and speaking to you in the way only music can. By creating memories and letting your heart remember just how it felt to put that needle on that tiny turn table.


One lucky reader will win one Emilio Estevez Sound Machine Over Ear Headphones valued at $149! Just enter on the form below. Ends 6/26 at 11:59pm EST, US only- void where prohibited. Good luck!

    I tend to find that the best way to discover new music is from people. Music is a global phenomenon that allows people from all over the world share a common interest. Some of the most unique and beautiful music I have ever heard came from someone else. Someone who has lived a completely different life, thus creating a different taste in music that I would not have. People = Music, and music makes the world go round.
