Sing Songbird, Sing

Posted on May 4, 2014

Our girl done good!! She’s only gone and sang at the infamous and legendary Bluebird cafe!! I wish I could have been there to see her on that stage. She was invited up onto the stage by Jeff Cohen as a special guest, which is amazing in itself. But actually getting to perform there as a country artist is something dreams are made of. And it seems whilst Lucy’s been in Nashville she’s been rubbing shoulders with all sorts of amazing people. I have to say I am a huge Rascal Flatts fan, so the fact that Lucy was sitting at a table next to the bass player from the band actually makes me slightly jealous. Lucky thing!! Writing and playing with legendary songwriters…

Happy Birthday Lucy

Posted on May 2, 2014

It’s Lucy’s birthday!! But there’s no rest for the wicked (or birthday girl it would seem.) Nope. From our recent conversations it’s apparent that Lucy has been working extremely hard whilst out in Nashville, which is lucky for all us fans over here. For the last couple of days Lucy has been in the studio laying down demos and backing vocals for the songs that she has written whilst over in Nashville. This girl clearly means business!! She’s been working with an array of musicians. All extremely talented and all a pleasure to work with. Lucy describes them as “out of this world.” Apparently they’re so professional that it takes them no time at all to play through the songs, discuss what chords they…

Welcome to Nashville

Posted on April 30, 2014

I’ve heard from Lucy! She seems to be having a wonderful time. Here’s what she’s getting up to in a nutshell… Hey Ya’ll. It’s official, I’m back in Nashville. Honestly so excited to be here, I’m finding it hard to believe. This time last week I was living my life, just waiting for this to happen; and now here I am. Guess my horoscope was right for once. Anyway, its been a busy couple of days over here in Nashville. I’ve spent the days songwriting with two very talented songwriters, Zach Abend and Jeff Cohen. I feel very privileged to be working with them, and can’t wait to get in the studio to start recording. Let the creativity begin! And seeing as I’ve been…

New beginnings and exciting adventures…

So, it’s been a while. Sometimes I think you need to take a step back, reevaluate what it is you want, and go from there. I took a little break from the blogosphere, I had no inspiration, but I knew that I still wanted to write. But writers block was firmly in place. I got so bogged down with life and work that my creative juices weren’t flowing, and no one wants to read about my every day… got up, went to work, came home again. Boring! But I have an exciting project for the next week or so. A very beautiful, very talented friend of mine is jetting off to Nashville to finish recording her album. And it just so happens, that she…

Sun, sea, jellyfish and lifeguards.

I’ve just got back from a brilliant two weeks away with my family. We went where we go every year, a beautiful little seaside town called Polzeath, Cornwall. I can honestly only describe this place as a little touch of heaven. It’s gorgeous, without being stuck up, the people are friendly and down to earth and every time we go the sun seems to grace us with its presence (which is very lucky considering we’re still in England.) And sun we did see. There was rain (a little), sun (a little bit more) and A LOT of hunky surfer dudes, with their muscles, and their tans, and their muscles, and… you get the picture. Needless to say the views were mind-blowing. But it wasn’t…

And then he just fell out…

It’s no lie that I am a clumsy girl. It doesn’t matter what I do, I will always be the girl who knocks her drink halfway across the bar, or the person that walks into the kitchen side, resulting in unsightly bruises. However, recently I have out-trumped even myself on the clumsy stakes. I went to Ascot yesterday (that was a weird jump but you’ll understand soon enough.) I spent ages planning my outfit, I bought three pairs of shoes, ya know just in case, I Youtubed ‘updos’ and when I left my house I’m sure I resembled a lady. Nothing could beat me. Cue a few bottles of wine later (and the rest) and I’m running around Ascot with no shoes on, talking…

We Are FSTVL!!

Posted on June 13, 2013

So, as you can probably guess from my last blog post, I went to a festival. It wasn’t the first festival I’ve ever been to and it certainly wasn’t the biggest (Creamfields, anyone?) But it was amazing!! The day was filled with great music, a brilliant atmosphere and loads of lovely people (we made so many new friends.) The festival was in a huge field in Essex, so was easy for us to get to as we only live the next county over. However, the morning didn’t quite go to plan. I was up at six o’clock because I was so excited I couldn’t sleep anymore. I was like a little kid waiting to see if Father Christmas had been. Because of this I…

Festival Essentials

Posted on May 24, 2013

It’s finally here – I am going to a festival tomorrow! As you can probably tell I am super excited, my friends and I have been waiting for We Are FSTVL for a long time. It’s going to be a chance for us to let our hair down, dance to some brilliant music and celebrate my friend Chloe’s 21st birthday in style; flashing badges at the ready. Okay so we are cheating a bit, as this festival is only a day long, no camping required, but it is still going to be a hell of a long day, and the toilets are still going to be just as dodgy. So while I was getting all my essential bits ready, I thought I’d share with…

Karen Millen S/S13

Posted on April 18, 2013

As many of you know I work for high-end fashion retailer Karen Millen. One of the perks of the job, aside from some of the amazing friends I have made, is that I get to try on a lot of the clothes. I never thought in a million years that I would own any Karen Millen clothes, so trying them on and being paid for it is very exciting. We took some pictures the other day so I thought I would share with you some of the new collection that will be coming into store. Excuse the quality of the photos, they were taken on an iPad… Also excuse my face, it wasn’t supposed to be in the pictures. So there you go, a…

Feel good Friday: When life gives you lemons; add Tequila and Salt.

I’ve always been a glass half empty kinda gal, never the optimist and always seeing the bad in pretty much every situation. I am, unfortunately, a negative thinker. Ever since I was a little girl I have been told to think positive and positive things will happen. My step dad is amazing for this. However, my response has always been, “yeah right, how is thinking positive going to get me outta this one?” I’ve always thought that thinking positive isn’t going to grow me a money tree/make him love me/make me look fab in a bikini, but I’m slowly realising it doesn’t need to do all these things. What thinking positive does do is make you happier within yourself, and that’s all it needs…
