As you may know, I saw Beyonce earlier this week with the lovely Joelle! I must say it was AMAZING! I would have loved to share this experience with you earlier, but as mentioned earlier I have had a jam packed week, aren’t you lucky that I’m choosing to spend these precious free moments with you lovelies?! Although I cannot do Beyonce justice in words I will try my best, and it just so happens it is international womens day, So if I’m going to post about anyone today, who better than Beyonce?
Whilst awaiting Queen Bey we were discussing how she is so well respected, and how everyone is in awe of her. She is not only an international superstar, with the voice of an Angel, but she also is strong, beautiful and has a heart of gold. She constantly is giving to charity, even helping over our end of the pond with the Prince’s Trust and internationally with the womens charity, Chime for Change.
Bey doesn’t just give you a concert, her shows are a true work of art. The world tour has a pianist of world class standard, amazing dancers and strong messages being projected on huge screens. This is no truer than in the song Flawless. A strong message about feminism, not the classic prejudice view of “men haters” but keeping all people on a level. Which I think is the resounding message of international women’s day.
I probably won’t get much chance to blog this week. It looks to be a bit of a whirlwind of a week, a very exciting one at that. So I’ll give you a quick breakdown of what’s getting me all excited this week:
I’ve been seeing this thing all over the place! The five minute journal looks like an amazing idea, aimed at setting you up with positive thoughts to start off your day! Not exactly a diary, as those I do not enjoy, but a few notes on what you aim to get out of the day and a few motivational quotes here and there for good measure. I think we could all do with taking 5 minutes out of the day to think positively, set goals and appreciate what we have already.
This is definitely an addition I need in my life, plus doesn’t it look super cute and sophisticated – You could imagine the one and only Audrey Hepburn carrying one of these about in her handbag.
So let me fess up, I am not normally a socialite in fact my week often revolves around the free magazines I pick up on the way to and from work (Tuesdays: Timeout; Wednesday: Stylist (although has been missing as of late); & Fridays: Evening Standard (Last week was Deluxe?!)). And yes changes in this routine turn my life into utter dismay. So when I had the opportunity to go out for a meal not once but twice in one day! I grabbed it with both hands!
This is a bit late in the day but, It’s Valentines day, the day where soppy couples get soppier; not so soppy ones become soppy and singletons grow bitter. So here is a quick picture based post for if you are single; in a relationship or somewhere in-between.
“The Excellence of Every Art Must Consist In the Complete Accomplishment of its Purpose”
The problem that I find I constantly fall into, along with most other Londoners is staring at the pavement and refusing to make eye contact with anyone on the tube or in the street. But why not look up and appreciate what is around us? I have often found myself envying other cities, especially those in Italy for their mix of architecture and art littering the streets. However, if I take the time to look to the rooftops on Piccadilly I would notice the Justice by H. Binney or the sculpted details on the De Beers shop building.
