Onwards and Upwards

Im feeling so positive again.

Myself and Ray Estaire had a photoshoot by John Gavin last week and the photos have come through. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I love them.

Have a look at his website

New plan of action, get some recording done, get promo material, and then I plan to be out of the country most of the summer..... I can feel it, this is the plan, let's put it into action....

Thank you so much to John Gavin for the photographer, Kennedy Purple and Designs by Tamaryn for the jewellery.

Shall we for once focus on the beauty of the world..

Everybody needs something to believe in...

Faith is to have hope of better thing's to come
to believe to be assured
to feel comfort something to rely on
does faith and hope get mistaken for each other
to have more faith we shall win
to have more hope we believe more
Faith is a power an individual has
for without that faith you feel alone
Have faith in yourself the power to believe
you can stand tall
fight away the demons believe in your faith
the truth is we all need a guide to keep us from straying
and we all need a little hope at some time
have faith be strong

I just love this photo, I find it so soothing, anybody know who it is by?

So peaceful, I find the colours so lovely

Ring the bells that still can ring.
Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything.
That's how the light gets in.
--Leonard Cohen

 This just feels so classic and timeless, I love it

This just reminds me of those rainy foggy nights where you're so close to home you can almost feel the duvet around you and you're so snuggled up it feels nice to have the rain on your face.

Mark Twain 

Alexander Pope (1688–1744)
Ode on Solitude 

And here's some beauty I've photographed and witnessed...

Christmas Trees in Dodoma

How happy he, who free from care
The rage of courts, and noise of towns;
Contented breathes his native air,
In his own grounds.

Whose herds with milk, whose fields with bread,
Whose flocks supply him with attire,
Whose trees in summer yield him shade,
In winter fire.

Blest! who can unconcern'dly find
Hours, days, and years slide swift away,
In health of body, peace of mind,
Quiet by day,

 Sound sleep by night; study and ease

Together mix'd; sweet recreation,
And innocence, which most does please,
With meditation.

Thus let me live, unheard, unknown;
Thus unlamented let me die;
Steal from the world, and but a stone, 
Tell where I lie

Randomness Relived

Just a few random thoughts and things that make me smile:

False nails should come with a health warning like any other beauty product: side effects may include, but are not limited to, inability to dress oneself and inability to grasp things (objects not concepts) 

Beneath this Mask there is more than just flesh, beneath this mask there is an idea. And ideas are bullet proof.... 
'V for Vendetta' - one of the best films I have ever seen.

Choose your thoughts carefully .. you are a masterpiece of your life

"creation is always happening. Every time an individual has a thought, or a prolonged chronic way of thinking, they're in the creation process. Something is going to manifest out of those thoughts."..Beckwith

Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark. Professionals built the Titanic

BEWARE! It's rude - but absolutely hilarious!! Makes me laugh for days at a time - also helps I love Akon 

It is in changes the we find purpose 

I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.
Kurt Cobain 

Marilyn Monroe - 
"I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."

When the going gets tough

So, as always life is one event after another.

If you don't know, I quit my full time job as a headhunter before christmas. I used to work in the Oil and Gas market and loved it, but decided now is the time to dedicate to and really go for the music career. So now I work three days a week as team support for 4 consultants in the FMCG industry. The rest of my time is spent working on my music and trying to get somewhere with that. I just felt that it's now or never, time to go for it.

Well, the last few weeks have been pretty trying. I actually went to see a psychic recently, who was AMAZING! If you're looking for someone in London I would highly recommend him.. have a look..

So he advised me that I should start a blog, that would get my name out there (which I actually had started just a couple of weeks before), he also said I should be honest and not try to sweeten everything that I write. So I suppose this is the first post where things are going wrong and I will be honest and tell you about it.

I organised a photoshoot for the band, got companies involved that are sending products, which are beautiful by the way, and now I can't get in touch with the photographer and one of the band is having to focus on her career so can't come. You know those times where as soon as something starts something comes in the way to challenge your view and how you are going to do it.

I feel like I've just started again, getting new ideas together of how we can break the market and really do something different, and another obstacle comes. But I guess they always say you have to fight for what you want.

The Divas project were supposed to be playing at an event, and that's now been cancelled. We don't have any upcoming gigs and it's getting so frustrating. I need to organise promotional material, but can't usually get my computer to work with my recording equipment but I will keep trying. Keep my head up and keep going. It will all be worth it I know, but I want to remember these moments as well so when it does happen I know I worked hard to get there and I deserve it...
You know you just sometimes have those days though, oh well... tomorrow is a new day, I


....5minutes later....
Just been contacted by the photographer, it's going ahead... *sigh of relief* we're back on track..
