Music Monday: Rita Ora

rs-13647-20131202-ritaora-x1800-1386026084Happy Music Monday! The weather’s been crappy but we found a little bit of sunshine to have a barbeque and enjoy our back garden a little this last weekend. We also played lots of music for a house full of friends and family.

One song that I had a lot of requests for is this raunchy electropop beauty, Our Song sung by Rita Ora. It was  recently written by Ed Sheeran and songwriter and producer Steve Mac.  The song is catchy and fun and it’s set to become one of those hits that you can’t get out of your head. So much so that it’s already become Ora’s 7th top ten single with it recently tipped at number 6 on the UK download charts.

Something you may not realise is that Ed Sheeran also sings backing vocals on this song too, if you listen carefully you can pick out his voice.

Tweet me and let me know your thoughts on the song and the video.

Happy Listening!

Music Monday: Ed Sheeran

Ed-Sheeran

Ed Sheeran is currently in the middle of a worldwide tour. This week saw him do his 3 day stint in London so on Wednesday I made my way to The O2 with one of my best friends to see him. It was a fab gig, look just him on stage with an effects peddle and a microphone.  He was quite mesmerising to watch, his energy is amazing and his voice live is really something live. Even though he’s the only one on the stage he owns it and you don’t want to take your eyes off the stage.

One of my favourite songs from his new album Divided is an up beat tune called Barcelona. It’s about Sheeran’s love for the beautiful city and it really does just makes you want to jump up, dance and sing along. The city attracts over a million holiday makers every week and it’s great timing as I’m actually off to Barcelona this week and I’ll be at the airport dancing to this song when this post goes up.

Tweet me and let me know what you’ve been listening to me lately.

Happy Monday!

Music Monday: Ed Sheeran

It’s that time again and this week we have two songs to wet your musical appetite. After a year off writing, this site travelling and exploring the countries that he’d only previously toured, buy information pills Friday 6th January saw Ed Sheehan release two brand new songs ‘Shape of You’ and “Castle on the Hill’.

Castle on the Hill is all about his friends and home town Framlingham, Suffolk.  It’s beautiful song that looks back on his memories and childhood and yes there really is an amazing castle on a hill. The first time I heard it, it really brought a tear to my eye. He recently was quoted as saying that he’s currently in a relationship so he wanted to write about other people that are close to him and his friends and home town seemed great. I think he’s done a great job on this song. It’s reflective, personal and the views on this song on Youtube broke 29.3 million in the first week. Crazy!

The second song, Shape of You was written in collaboration with Steve Mac and Johnny McDaid.  It’s a cheeky song that was originally meant for Rhianna with the mixture of R and B and tropical house beats but he decided part way through the writing process that he wanted the song for himself. The beat kind of entices you in and it really makes me want to get up dance. It’s Ed Sheehan with a bit of a twist and maybe an indication of his writing skills expanding too. Can’t wait to hear more from the album. It should drop any day now.

Let me know what you think of Ed Sheehan’s new songs in the comments below.

Happy Monday!

Tanya Burr lipgloss
This Tanya Burr lipgloss was an August re-release for the blogger/vlogger but it’s a lipgloss that I keep coming back to to. It’s a really pretty coral with gorgeous gold flecks included. It gives a small tint of colour but nothing like the bottle so it’s not as scary as you expect. It has a great texture when it’s on, viagra buy it lasts quite a long time even when I’ve eaten or drink something. The new packaging is so pretty and it’s a bargain price too!

Wetbrush
I’m still really loving this wet brush. Does what it’s title says. You can brush your hair when wet because the in essence the brush teeth are further apart, check made of a denser material which means it doesn’t pull so much. This also means that it will give little or no split ends. I love the blue ombre effect on my expert wet brush too. So pretty. Just wish I had a hair tie and curlers now. :-0

Origins A perfect World Antioxidant Cleanser with White Tea
Origins are a strange company for me, sale maybe I’ve just had quite bad experiences with my local stand but they do great products and I can’t knock them for that.
I had a facial in September where they used this face wash and just loved it. It smells so good with the inclusion on white tea as the main ingredient, it makes you feel like you want to eat this stuff. It leaves your skin feeling really soft and fresh. If also been testing the moisturiser of the same collection and I’ve been quite impressed with this too. Again it makes my skin feel really soft, but it also leaves it feeling like it’s had a good drink and is deeply moisturised. I’m planning on buying the full version of this at the end of the month.

SuperCat eye liner from Soap and Glory
I’ve recently written a post on this product. I find the SuperCat eye liner really easy to use and especially as the nib of the pen quite ridged. This means it’s quite a bit easier to use than any other eye liner product I’ve used so far in my quest for finding my perfect eye liner. A great product to start with for beginners in make up and one to try out if you are looking for something from the high street seeing as it’s just the bargain price of £6. I do find that the product does often move and smudge if it’s put on without any base or primer so you do have to prep the area before applying quite vigilantly.

Supercat

Jo Malone perfume
I was bought this beautiful Jo Malone perfume in Wood Sage and Sea Salt for my birthday in June. It’s my first Jo Malone scent and boy what a great one to start with. I just can’t get enough, think it’s becoming my all time favourite summer/autumn fragrance. It’s subtle, but really feminine and it looks amazing in photos. Bonus!

Love Necklace – Alex Monroe
The end of September saw my husband and I celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We had a lovely day at London Zoo with a meal at my favourite restaurant Rossopomadoro (Little Tomato) in Covent Garden where I was given this gorgeous gold plated Alex Monroe Love necklace. What a treat especially as it’s my favourite jewellery designer. We saw the night out in the top bar at the Gerkin tower with spectacular views of London chatting about the past year, and our future hopes and dreams. Perfect!

Michael Kors bag
It’s bag love of the month with this little beauty. I have a few designer bags now but I keep coming back to this one, the Michael Kors Jet Set Travel Tote. It’s big, fits everything in including my laptop which handy when I want to take it into work which I often have to do. I can’t imagine I will ever fall out of love with this.

TV programs

Gossip-Girl-S2-shoot
Gossip Girl
In September I was really addicted to this program. I’d sit down after dinner and watch it, so much so that I watched all of the series in just 6 weeks with little to no break in the middle. Eek! Addicted much! The ending just made so much sense too, really very clever.  There was some great writers on this show. I hope they do a come back at some point. It would be great to see how they are getting on 10 years down the line.

reign-1

Reign
This is a new show for me but I started to watch this right at the end of the month and have continued on to watch it throughout October. It’s all about the reign of Mary, Queen of Scots, the life and loves. It’s really done well and the costumes are spectacular. It’s a must watch for everyone!

Music – Ed Sheeran/James Bay
As you can probably tell I have been loving both Ed Sheeran and James Bay this month a lot. I tend to listen to their albums a lot when I’m at work. They’re really easy listening and both artists music seem to make me really productive which is alway a plus. I’d love to go and see both in concert at some point, tickets are like gold dust though. You can just never get hold of any. Both would be amazing though!

What have your favourites been throughout September? Let me know in the comments below.

Emma

1. Could you start by telling us a bit about yourself and your blog.

I’m Emma, pilule the Em behind Country Girl Em. I work full time as a social worker and blog in my spare time. My blog shares my interests and passions (outside of work) which is mainly beauty based, but I also blog about baking, food and my life.

2. How long have you been blogging for and what inspired you to start it?

I’ve only been blogging just over 3 months now, so I am still a relative newbie to the wonderful world of blogging! I have been an avid reader of other blogs and watcher of YouTubers for a while and they inspired me to start my blog alongside my love of writing and wanting to have another interest outside of work.

6. Who’re your biggest style influences?

This is a difficult question as I am definitely not a fashionista. I am vertically challenged and on the curvy side of curvy so I do struggle to find fashionable flattering clothes.

I absolutely love handbags so a good bag is a definite essential. I also love nail polish and have quite an extensive collection and I do feel that a pop of colour on your nails can really sharpen a look!

11.What music are you listening to right now?

At the moment I have been loving the new Kelly Clarkson album, Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran.

Music Monday: No Diggity Radio 1 Live Lounge


Ed Sheeran – No Diggity on the Radio 1 live Lounge

Music-Monday-EdSheeran

 

It’s that time again. Yep, order it’s Monday and this week’s Music Monday is Ed Sheeran. I’ve not been a big fan of Ed Sheeran but recently I started to take a little bit of an interest. This is mainly because I saw the dance for the video of Thinking Out Loud. It’s quite technical and he really impressed me with the song itself and the dance. He’s not a professional dancer but that dance made him look great.

I recently listened to the set that Ed Sheeran did on the live Lounge on Radio 1. I really love it and I also love how amazed Fern is that he’s so talented. They have such great banter. Ed Sheeran keeps very grounded, this site he almost doesn’t believe that he’s talented.
No Diggity is how he finishes the Radio 1 Live Lounge set and it really is something, especially when he goes off on a bit of a tangent and includes trills and rap from Blackstreet, Snoop dog, 50 Cent and Dre. It’s a fab video. Enjoy!

Do let me know what music you have been listening to this last week. I’d love to know your thoughts are in the comments below.

Happy Monday!

Interesting Fact: Ed Sheeran actually comes from just down the road from where I live. I was told recently that my aunty and uncle actually used to teach said singer when he was younger before he moved to London to pursue his career and make it big. He recently went back to the school where they both still work and he did a performance for the kids there. Later he went to the pub with all the teachers. Apparently he couldn’t get used to calling my uncle by his name and not being Sir. Pretty cool story huh!
