Anyway I was asked if I would listen to a bands called Delta Rae's new track Bottom of the River. I have never heard of them before so I gave it a listen and well I love it.
Its short but so addictive the listen to, the lead singers voice is amazing. Its a real southern american gospel song.
I can't find much else they have done in the past apart from some cover versions but I can't wait to hear more.
They have made a really creepy video and its perfect for Halloween hence why I sharing it with you today.
If you want to hear more you can visit their Youtube Channel, you can also download this track for free on their website Delta Rae
So here is Delta Rae and Bottom of the River

I can't put in words what I want to say to Sandy so here is track to show her.
This is for everyone that has ever been made to feel less than perfect.
Pink, F*ckin Perfect (contains swear words)
I am really looking forward it, I love small gigs and its great to have something local to go to. And of course its cool to go to a gig with your dad *cough*.
My Sing Along Saturday comes from Puddle of Mudd and is probably the only one you will know of there's (it is for me!)
Its called She Hates me and is the clean version with the swear words bleeped out (sorry)

I find his music mellow but really catchy at the same time, I can listen to him sing all day. No track is under 4 minutes which I like, you really get a chance to be drawn into the music.
I was really torn between what tracks to share with you today as there is two a really love, The Wolves and Keep You Head up so I have decided to give you both!

This has been a real tough one to choose so I thought I would go with a song from the very first gig that I ever went to.
Me and my sister really wanted to go and see Jason Donovan but my dad refused to take us and took us to see Kylie Minogue instead. Don't get me wrong at aged 11 I was a big fan of both I just like Jason that little bit more.
We had a great time dancing in the aisle at London docklands and my dad was happy to see her in her skimpy costumes!
So in honour of my Daddy's birthday this weeks Sing Along Saturday track is.....

So here it is..
The dress is from Simply Be is the Grazia Lace Tunic Dress and costs £59 and is available in sizes 14 to 32.
Its a two piece dress consisting of a purple under dress with adjustable straps (great for short people like me) and a black lace over dress.
I found it really comfortable to wear and the lace dress is slightly stretchy. It also has a black ribbon that ties at the back which helps pull in the waist.
It washed really well and didn't shrink and the best thing is it doesn't need ironing!
This is going to be my Christmas dress this year, perfect for hiding my big tummy after dinner!
A huge thanks again to Simply Be for providing my dress.

Life has a funny way of bitting you in the arse sometimes, as a young man found out last night.
Me and OH were on the tube on our way to Kings Cross last night when 3 girls and a guy got on. One of the girls has an empty coffee cup and we all know how heavy they can be to carry around. The guy with them decided to come to her rescue and lean out of the door and dump the empty cup on the platform.
As he did this his £280 Prada sunglasses slipped off his shirt and fell down the gap between the train and the platform and then the door shut. It took all my strength not to laugh out loud! A little giggle sneaked out but he didn't hear me.
The moral of the story? Don't litter (or show off in front of girls!)
