CURATED BY LISA MARIE BASILE
Maybe you just got barked at by the lady who sells wooden roses (they're actually pretty, though) on the 2 train? Maybe you still smell like Sunday's last-call bar-bathroom sex. Or maybe you just need a bit of a slow-start morning--something soft, something that at least sort of feels like that dreamy, colorful world you so wish you could inhabit if it weren't for your desk job. Yes?
So here's a heady, beautiful, visually-stunning video playlist (you're welcome to plug in and start your work without watching the vids) to make your fluorescent lackluster morning a bit less soulless and bit a more cooly splendid. Also, this Monday's playlist is 100% babe.
