InStyle Magazine DJ Playlist

What a week! One minute I’m running around with the Brownlee Brothers, trying my very hardest to keep up with them, the next minute I’m DJing from the most Instagrammable venue in London, Lights Of Soho, playing tunes for Instyle Magazine's Project 13 Awards after party. Now that I've had a moment to catch my breath, let's have a chat.

Instyle UK Magazine Party DJ

Celebrating online writers and bloggers, Instyle Magazine's Project 13 is in it's second year, enabling thousands of people to vote for their favourite blogger in a range of categories (from travel to food, craft to fitness) to win an award. Much to my surprise and delight, I won the award for Best Fitness & Wellbeing Blog. Thank you so much for voting!

Instyle Award

There was even more to celebrate as not only did I win an award but I was also DJ'ing at their after party and got the party into full swing playing a mix of RnB and pop tracks but the following seemed to be particularly popular on the night:

  • Lee Walker feat. Katy B - Freak Like Me
  •  KDA feat. Katy B + Tiny Tempah - turn the Music Louder
  •  George Kwali & Kideko feat. Nadia Rose - Crank It
  •  Eats Everything vs Audion - Dancing
  •  Stardust - Music Sounds Better
  •  Robin S - Show me Love never 
Music DJ London

It was a super fun night, celebrated behind the decks, with friends and a cocktail or few. You can read me gushing over how chuffed I am about being an award winning blogger and see the full list of Project 13 winners by clicking here.

Lovebox Festival 2015 | What I Wore

Lovebox Festival 2015 Boohoo.com

Arh great,  British music festivals. The perfect time to get together with friends, have a few drinks, see some live music and people watch. (Yes, people watching...it's a thing) so when women's footwear brand, Butterfly Twists invited  me to Lovebox music festival in Victoria Park, yesterday in London, I was delighted.

In addition to Skepta,  Dizzee Rascal,  Groove Armarda and Rudimental, I also saw a LOT of female flesh at Lovebox music festival. I too was flashing a plenty of skin so here's what I wore.

It's a dress (a really short dress) by Motel Rocks. I'm 5 ft 7 and (as you've probably gathered) the size small looks more like a top than a dress on me. So, I wore a pair of shorts underneath it, mainly to save the eyes of innocent strangers and the trauma of them seeing my actual derriere...if only my fellow scantily dressed sisters would have done the same (come on girls :).

I started the day wearing a metal head piece and ended it wearing a floral head band. Don't ask me how that happened but I think I prefer the flowers.

I had a great time so now I have one hell of a sore throat and sleepy eyes to combat.

Flash Back Friday: Isle of Wight Festival

Isle of Wight festival kicks off today and I will be presenting a cheeky little video for Malibu Rum. So let's rewind to when I was TV presenting at the Isle of Wight festival. It was three days of fun, interviewing the likes of Katy B, Kelly Jones from Stereophonics and my all time favourite, Kelis - I heart Kelis! All of my interviews were being broadcast live on Sky Arts and Sky 1, which was incredible and so much fun!

I was so excited to be presenting alongside Joe Whiley & Zoë Ball in addition to Tom Ravenscroft, Shaun Keaveny and Mathew Horne. I grew up watching Zoë Ball on Live & Kicking so that was a particular highlight, especially as she's so bloomin' nice. We shared a dressing room together, she drove me around on a golf buggy and she even brought me cake. What a woman! Here's a few snaps from one of the most fun weekends ever.

DJ'ing For Ibiza Rocks

Did you know that Ibiza Rocks celebrated their 10th birthday last week? Well if you don’t know, now you know.

Ibiza Rocks is a hotel and live music venue in Spain that has hosted the likes of Jake Bugg, Tinnie Tempah, Example and Ed Sheran and without sounding too corny, is also a place that has filled me with unforgettable memories. Last year I watched Fatboy Slim and Ella Eyre perform live and I even caught up with Clean Bandit before seeing them on stage their too. Naturally, I was delighted to be part of Ibiza Rocks’ ten year anniversary.

To celebrate, Ibiza Rocks had an exclusive pop up in Shoreditch, London and I was DJ’ing 90s anthems with my girl, Charlotte De Carle. Our tune-packed slot was broadcasted live on Hoxton Radio, where we controlled the airwaves for three hours to kick start the May bank holiday weekend.

90s music may not scream Ibiza Rocks initially, especially when Sigma, Rudimental and Gorgan City are all on their line up this year, but 90s music is nostalgic. Simple. I’ll never forget Creep by TLC being the song that I sipped cheap Sangria to before heading out with my girl friends in San Antonio and Scream by Michael and Janet Jackson was definitely sang in our taxi ride home one night after a full day and night at Formentera beach. 90s music has created the positive vibes for my pre and post-party antics in Ibiza so...90s it was.

Charlotte fed me, danced all over me and made me chuckle throughout the radio show. We were visited by our Hoxton Radio family, who showed some serious crew love and trendy East Londoners popped in throughout the show too. I’m still proud that I was apart of such a great event so Happy Birthday Ibiza Rocks! Here’s to many more musical memories.

You can catch me on my regular Hoxton Radio slot presenting the Chart Show, 2-4pm on Monday’s.
