Fail and Prevail: How failure can be the ultimate catalyst for success

Drop it Like it's Hot Not! Failure does not spell the end!

What do Anna Wintour and JK Rowling have in common?  Apart from being publishing powerhouses, they have all plunged to the deepest, darkest depths of failure and have managed to emerge from those depths smelling of roses.

Point of View: Best Dressed Lists

Primetime Emmy Awards 2013
Whenever we indulge in the delights of weekly gossip magazines, it’s always impossible to flick through without coming across the regular best-dressed lists features, which separate the fashionistas from the fashion victims. The lists showing some of the world’s best-loved celebrities who have been looking spectacular and have been dressing appallingly. But is it just a bit of innocent tongue in cheek fun or a form of playground bullying?

My Response to Asda's 'Mental Patient' Costume

A measly 140 characters was nowhere near enough for me to express my anger and disgust at THIS 'mental patient' Halloween costume, hence this blog post.

R.I.P Whitney Houston

Not exactly an ideal start to 2012. A very sad day for the world of showbiz indeed! An extraordinary talent and vocal powerhouse. Whitney Houston was the greatest vocalist of all time who had the unique and astounding ability to transform a song into something very beautiful with her extraordinarily powerful vocal chords and talent. Her music will live on forever and her star will continue to shine. No doubt that this year's Grammy Awards will be a very sombre event. R.I.P Whitney.

The X Factor Semi Finals - The Round Up

Last night, the aromatic smell of victory was floating in the air as the final four took to the shimmering stage and sang their young hearts out for a place in next week's final ( I can't believe it has come so quick!!!). It feels like only yesterday that they were just fresh-faced auditionees wanting a shot at a music career and it is so impressive of how far they have come. Even if they don't win, it does not matter at all -  they are definitely guaranteed a career of some sort in music or any other sectors of the entertainment industry. Last night the pressure was on like Donkey Kong!!! The final four all sang two songs each - one Motown classic and one that they believe will get them into the final! It's crunch time!!!

Song of the Week

Lady Gaga - Marry the Night

My favourite track from Born This Way by a mile!!! Love this song and video (even though you don't hear the song until the end of the vid)! Such a relatable song and also a gem for the dancefloor! Time to wear out this song on my iPod!!! The song is about the recovery from a very dark period in her life where she got dropped for her record label - very raw and emotionally honest!
