Have fun looking around 🙂

What You Waiting For

by Gwen Stefani
I think this woman is fantastic! Never mind the music – she deserves full credit for being able to dance and strut around in those towering high heels.
This debut solo single is a brilliant first track to get everyone’s attention. I hope the rest are going to be so good. It must be difficult to launch yourself as a solo female performer and be original, but Gwen seems to do this effortlessly. Her voice is totally unique and she’s one of the very few people these days who sings live on Top of the Pops, proving that her talent and funny warbling notes aren’t made up in the studio. I also love her performances and the effort she goes to entertain us – the costumes and the set design and the dancing. I saw No Doubt at Glastonbury a few years ago and I’ve never seen so much energy on stage!
The music video is equally interesting, in which Gwen takes on the various characters from Alice in Wonderland – mixed in with scenes of her making up the song at the piano in some sort of studio. Again, it’s lively and interesting and I’m very impressed.

Entertainment, Music,

Burlesque Wonderland – Alice through the Martini glass at The Fleece in Bristol
October 5, 2016
From blackberries yesterday to burlesque today! And why not? Rain didn’t really know what to do to celebrate her twenty-first birthday. She had originally planned a day of wand-making (yes really) with her two best friends, followed by films and a sleepover. Then Jude spotted this event in Bristol just a couple of days beforehand and we all decided that we’d quite like to go. So the wand-making stopped early for everyone to change into their Alice in Wonderland Costumes….
3 days in Oxford – Day 1. The story of the photographs
September 16, 2016
I was so excited about this little mini-break to Oxford. I love my family to bits, but sometimes it’s nice to be alone and have a little headspace all to yourself! I also find it difficult to relax at home because there’s always so much to do there. I don’t think it helps that I work from home either, so no matter if it’s the evening or weekend, I still always feel I should either be working or doing something towards fixing the house. I was also a little bit nervous because I’m not great at driving and get flustered easily, but the journey was good; I didn’t get lost once and made it to the park and ride with no problems following the sat nav!….
Anti-reflective coating on your glasses – is it worth it?
October 9, 2016
Whenever I’m recording a You Tube video in my work-room, all I seem to do is spin round in circles trying not to have massive white rectangles on my glasses. They somehow even manage to appear with my back to the window! When Chris is taking photos for my Weekly Wardrobe posts, we’ve more-or-less given up with glasses, so I stumble about blind for the sake of not having glaring white blobs in the middle of my face. (Hashtag blogger problems.) I am so short-sighted, I cannot see a thing without them, and I hate that feeling so much. So finally, even though there was nothing particularly wrong with my glasses, I decided to splash out and buy a new pair with anti-reflective coating….
