Winter in Brittany

I love the "country lifestyle".

Right now, I live in central London, but when I was growing up in Brighton I always had unlimited access to both the beach and the countryside. I also spent my summers in rural France, exploring everything on my own. I always relish going to stay with my Dad, so here's a little taster of what I got up to on my very relaxing trip to stay with him, this winter.

It was the perfect way to convalesce after my operation. I'm on my way back to health, and looking forward to a productive, healthy, and happy new year. This year, I'm getting married, and lots of other exciting things are going to happen too! Keep your eyes peeled, friends!

Autumn Resurrection.

Salut encore mes amis!

August and September flew by in a flurry of trying-to-be-employed-but-not-succeeding-to-be-employed, and here we are already, in October. I have a couple of lovely posts lined up for you, including a Rainbow Cake Tutorial, so stay tuned for that!

Me and Daddy Dearest

Here's a picture of my father and I (taken by my dear friend David Elbaz of GamraProductions) at Letchworth Station after a day of recording for my Dad's latest musical project. This is going to be a post in which I update you on the various musical endeavours with which I've been involved in the recent months. My Dad's old band, The Perfect Disaster (facebook and wikipedia) have somewhat reformed in order to record some new music. It's all on the horizon as we've been busy mixing and recording and doing technological magic on it, but if you can't wait here's a sneak peak of some of the new material.



So there's that. In addition to collaborating with mon père, I sing backing vocals for Robin Grey, a wonderful man who writes beautiful nu-folk tunes. I am very lucky to get to sing with him and other incredible musicians such as Basia Bartz and Caitlin Roberts who also play in Robin's band. I am aware that I am using many superlatives, and may be approaching 'gushiness' (a word I may have just invented...) Nevertheless, if you want to know what we sound like when we play together, watch this video:


Or listen to this:


Well, that's what I've been up to. I'll be posting some outfits soon, but until then, forgive me for plugging music I've been involved with! I am very excited about these projects and I want you guys to be excited too! (That's an order!) Until next time, here's a "cheeky" shot of Robin in the Abbot Street Studio recording some vocals for the new album. You should like us on facebook to see when we're playing shows, although I'll undoubtedly remind you!

Adios! Stay tuned like I said, for the RAINBOW CAKE TUTORIAL, and to find out my AUTUMN GOALS FOR 2012!

My 18th Birthday- 'tis the season to be jolly!

On the 21st of December it was my birthday! I had my first ever party. Loads of pictures were taken, but I haven't managed to get my hands on many of them yet, I am afraid. Quite a few of my friends brought their instruments along and we had lots of jamming. It was great. Patrick and I played 'Hallelujah' by Jeff Buckley, and we also played Scarborough fair, and some others. I received some amazing presents from my friends too, including
  • felt tips,
  • a teapot for one,
  • scarves,
  • hats,
  • mittens,
  • biscuits,
  • mugs...
  • a CD: 'The Magic Position' by Patrick Wolf (check him out!)
  • a top,
  • my Evenstar pendant! (yes yes, i am a Lord of the Rings geek!)
  • and of course, my Dress! Elbe made it for me!!!
My dad gave me some red converse, and my mum and her boyfriend gave me some perfume. 'Flower' by Kenzo.

After the party, Kim, Tasha, Elbe, Tilly, Kat, Hannah, Alice, Zoe, Becca, Dan and Richard all went to Pablo's for pizza, and after that, i went for my first legal pub-drink. I felt all grown up! Becca gave me money to get Pear Cider, and beer, and we all sat outside. Unfortunately, we got moved along because I was the only one with ID, so that was a bit annoying. The bar-guy did give us plastic cups to be going along with though!!

here are a few pictures: I don't think the evening could have gone any better! although the day was a bit ropey, as our car broke down in the middle of the motorway, and it was mightily stressful!!!

In other news:

Elbe managed to get us second row tickets to see 'The Mighty Boosh' in November! And I got another university offer. Cardiff wants me to get two Bs and a C! wowee!
