I’m so sad to hear Willemijn Verkaik has had to cut short her performances in London. I was so looking forward to seeing her next month. Of course her health is the most important but I would’ve loved to see her play Elphaba one more time. Wishing her luck in whatever she does next.


On Wednesday night, during my choir show, I sang Brave by Sara Bareilles, solo with my guitar. I was so nervous since it was my biggest crowd so far with hundreds of people in the audience. But it was amazing. That’s what I live for. I sang it the best I ever have and I felt so connected to the song. It may have been the best moment of my life.


Listening to my cat snore is one of the most relaxing sounds to fall asleep to.

Here you go, Lauren! I’m sorry it looks so shitty, the glue hasn’t dried yet. 

My contribution to the Scrapbook for Sara…


My Sara Bareilles phone case arrived courtesy of caseapp.co.uk :) I’m so excited to have a photo I took on my phone case.


In honour of the start of the Little Black Dress Tour last night, here are some photos I took when Sara Bareilles came to visit us in London :)


Having had the week I’ve had, I haven’t had the time or the energy to make any new music. I recorded this a while ago and it’s just been sitting in a folder on my desktop so I thought I’d upload it. I love the song. I love the fairytale idea of love it portrays. I think we’ve all wished for something so easy and perfect at least once in our lives. 


John and Jacob favourited my post. Not gonna lie, I’m freaking out a bit.


I’ve had ‘I’d Go Back’ by John and Jacob on repeat for two days. It feels oddly appropriate. And it’s a great song.


I was super far away because I bought my ticket so late but it was a great night. I’d forgotten how wonderful Kacey Musgraves is and John and Jacob were a fantastic new discovery. they made me smile which isn’t the easiest thing to do these days.


I could write an album about this week.

I wish I could be as chilled as her.

Submitted my entries for the UK Songwriting Contest last night.

I really love how easy it is. Some competitions make it almost impossible to enter but this one is so good. I’ve had two songs to the semi finals so far so hopefully this year will be as good or better. 


Went again with one of my best friends. I’d convinced her to read the book in the first place and we hadn’t seen each other in a long time so it was really nice to hang out again.

I love how summer evenings feel.
