Song Of The Month – November 2018 – Who You Are by Jessie J

LINK TO THE VIDEO When it comes to uplifting songs, this is one of the best of modern times in my humble opinion. It’s such a good message for young boys and girls and even old ladies like me. I also like to pretend I can sing and belt it out like a diva. Move over Miss J! Follow me on YouTube to watch the whole playlist. So here it goes, press play, listen and love it. Let’s keep growing! xx Lee xx Comments welcome below.   Hey, why not follow this blog! There should be some follow buttons somewhere…

Song Of The Month – October 2018 – The Way I Am By Eminem

LINK TO THE VIDEO Do you remember that time when Eminem was literally the most important person in whole entire world of music? I even bought Angry Blonde which was a book about his songs, the lyrics, the inspirations. I loved him but I had friends that were obsessed with him. The way these young whipper snappers are obsessed with One Direction, Fifth Harmony, Taylor Swift and even Queen Bey. I bet if we had Twitter then, they would have been hardcore trolls for him, haha, thank goodness for growing up in the Dark Ages! Follow me on YouTube to…

That Blog Life

Was The Social Media Break Worth It?

I said a Temporary Goodbye to this blog on the 20th July 2018 while I went on my first big family holiday with my kids (which ticked off a place on my travel bucket list) and had a much-needed social media break. The hope was that I would rejuvenate myself while being scared of FOMO and potentially losing some of my inspiration, passion and motivation for the blog.

Song Of The Month – September 2018 – Crawling By Linkin Park

LINK TO THE VIDEO Last year, the lead singer of Linkin Park died and I had an immense feeling of grief, especially for his children, I realised that I hadn’t listened to one of my all time favourite albums, Hybrid Theory, for years. It got me through those awkward teenage years, gave me a feeling of belonging to something. The album will never sound the same again. When it first came out and for a significant amount of time after, it was literally the only album that I owned where I could listen to every single song without having to…

Song Of The Month – August 2018 – I Write Sins Not Tragedies By Panic! At The Disco

LINK TO THE VIDEO This a complete throwback of me from a different time. I remember I went through a phase of mild emo-ness. I loved it. I had a friend at school that used to write song lyrics down on paper and pass them to me in class. For ages, I thought she was some sort of philosophical poetical marvel! Turns out she was just sending me Papa Roach and Incubus lyrics. It made me realise that I wasn’t paying attention to lyrics as much as I should have! And although she never sent me this song because I’ve…

Song Of The Month – July 2018 – Ready For Love By India.Arie

LINK TO THE VIDEO I think this is the 3rd time that India Arie has popped up in my Song of the Month playlist. What can I say but she’s amazing! Songs like this make me wish I never gave up the guitar but it hurt my fingers though! Anyway, this song gives me goosebumps, it’s so sincere and beautiful. If you’ve never heard it before I suggest you listen to the words carefully, if you have heard it before, sit back, relax and be taken away to that place her voice sends you to. Goosebumps! Follow me on YouTube…

Song Of The Month – June 2018 – Should’ve Been Us By Tori Kelly

LINK TO THE VIDEO With a voice like hers, I’m not sure why she isn’t bigger! But perhaps the market is too crowded or people just haven’t given her a chance but honestly, Tori Kelly is so amazing and that hair!! Had to mention the hair, of course! I love this song and did from the second I first heard it but I loved it even more when I saw her perform it at the VMAs a couple of years ago. I first heard of her when she was the featured singer on a Professor Green song (Lullaby) and honestly…

Song Of The Month – May 2018 – On & On By Erykah Badu

LINK TO THE VIDEO I’m just over half way through my headwrapping photo project on Instagram and it’s time for my Song of The Month.  So when it came to a musical artist that inspired me and also I could picture their crowns wrapped in  beautiful fabric, who else other than Erykah Badu. I know these days she is known for flaunting her immense natural hair either loose or threaded up but when I was younger, all I remember where her impossibly high headwraps. She’s quite an intense human being from interviews I’ve seen and read, she is truly a…

Song Of The Month – April 2018 – 2U By David Guetta and Justin Bieber

LINK TO THE VIDEO I am loathed to add Justin Bieber to my definitive list of songs I love because I am a grown ass woman but goddammit, he makes fairly good music (now) especially when he collabs with dance DJs. It’s just a winning formula for the guy, it was a toss up between this or “Where R U Now” with Skrillex but this one caught me in the right mood so here you go. Follow me on YouTube to watch the whole playlist. So here it goes, press play, listen and love it. Let’s keep growing! xx Lee…

Song Of The Month – March 2018 – Stay by Zedd & Alessia Cara

LINK TO THE VIDEO I have to say there is something a little different about Zedd’s take on dance music. From collabs with Hayley Williams to Foxes, it’s clear that he focuses on the song and not just the beat. Which is why this collab works so well! I love Alessia Cara’s voice and I played a few of her songs to the kids but the boys couldn’t care less (their loss) and this was the one that my daughter latched onto the most. We love it, this is our song. As soon as the video starts, she knows what…
