It's been a busy week for me. I was supposed to be starting a long term temp job but it hasn't materialised yet so I have been enjoying my freedom and getting in some writing on my memoir. Can't wait to finish it and get in onto the NY Times best seller list! Well, a girl can dream, can't she? What I did do was print it all out and put it in a ring binder. It feels real now. Almost like a real book!
On Monday I participated in a fabulous Women Gathering Project and met some amazing, inspirational women, all doing what they can to change the world around them for the better. We also ate some yummy, delicious food and laughed a lot.
So I thought I would honour women for this weekend's musical artists. First up is quirky, British born, indie pop, singer-songwriter, Paloma Faith. Her debut album Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful? went Platinum and stayed in the UK charts for over 40 weeks. I have it and I absolutely love it! It was difficult to choose one song as they are all excellent. I ended up with New York as it is a fun up-tempo number.
Paloma Faith - New York
Feist - Bittersweet Melodies
Amy Macdonald - This Is The Life
