We all love Mariah Carey’s iconic ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ and we can’t imagine a December without classic tunes such as ‘Jingle Bells’ and ‘White Christmas’.

Is there anything more impressive than listening to a beautiful piece of piano pop? While bands and guitars and electro pop are still popular on the airwaves, it’s still a welcome sound to listen to a big piano anthem on the radio.

It’s hard to believe but the undisputed classic album, ‘Starfish’, from legendary Australian band The Church, commemorates its 30th anniversary this year.

Not gonna lie; its been quite a low key week for me. I’ve currently saving super hard for my trip to Baltimore next month among other exciting things but it really has got me thinking about things happening. I realised that unless the occasion involves alcohol I’m often not partial to attendance. I spent Thursday & Friday drinking away at the local pub; drinking the night away with colleagues and smoking just a little too much. We’ll look back on these occasions with such fondness, even if they do end with myself jumping into the back of a cab enroute to a hook up I 100% should not be pursuing.
P!NK’s eighth studio album ‘Hurts 2B Human’ is set for release on April 26th via RCA Records and is available for pre-order today.

We’ve hit February! I’m sure January was longer than the entire of 2018? I had a lovely Saturday having brunch at Bao and Bing. It was so cool! It’s this cute little Thai cuisine restaurant just off Baker Street. You pick two buns and then your pieces inside the buns… Bao is like this fluffy, steamed bun and it’s absolutely scrumptious. I had salmon, avocado and vine tomatoes with me and a glass of prosecco or two. They also do this really fun thing where you can pick a number between 1-150 and if your number is called from this bingo box, your meal is free.
