Wow! I nearly fell over when I received this last week! Billboard top 20 AND a bunch of sensational reviews of my album Live It Up including this one in Inhale Magazine. I’ve been on cloud nine!
I have had busy month for a change… Juggling the four kids in the thick of it at four different school’s around London, studio sessions, live performances, award presentations and closing parties – I’ve become a mega espresso addict!
I had a great time attending my friend Spencer Matthews from Made In Chelsea’s book launch with my son.
I had a fabulous gig a few days later at a sold-out prime boxing match in London at Leyton Hall
Juxtaposed with an exciting performance up in Chester for their amazing Gay pride event! It was surreal to see everyone there with their pointing foam fingers for “Pointing Fingers” Hilarious!!
Nothing more fulfilling as an artist than to see everyone singing your words and dancing to your songs! What a great day!
Last week, I was honoured to have been asked to present the Humanitarian Award at the Inspirational Women Awards.
I presented to a lady called Helen Bamber — creator of the Helen Bamber Foundation which helps people who have experienced any form of cruelty.
It was a very emotional but very exciting event. I was chuffed to be surrounded by so many amazing women.
On a much “airier” note — so to speak — it turns out my Pointing fingers video
is playing on in-flight video screens! Look out for it when you’re next travelling!
And for those of you who like games…. It turns out that I’m a trivia question on the Made In Chelsea app! Check out this screenshot! How cool is that!
Well, I really felt like I deserved a vacation after the smashing review my new album received in Hello Magazine in August! "Live It Up is the perfect soundtrack to your summer holiday!" Check this out! South of France was sensational. We stayed in a lovely villa in St. Tropez that was a 5 minute walk to the beach! I'm back only a few days and I'm already missing my favourite steamed artichoke at Club 55. It's probably our top restaurant in France to have lunch (and people watch!) We sat next to Sir Elton John, David Furnish and their two kids one day, Philip Green and Kate Moss the next and the amazing basketball legend Lebron James! http:// http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQrvAld3QOo Then after a whopping two weeks off, I had the pleasure of performing in front of thousands of people this past Saturday at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium for Gay Pride Mardi Gras! It was so great hanging with the fabulous Rylan Clark who was compere for the day! I'm looking forward to seeing him again at a few upcoming events we are doing together. See the tab 'Live' for more live dates. I had such a blast with my two new gorgeous dancers on stage, Gaz Davis and Tobias Mead! Tobias brought the house down on Britain's Got Talent a couple years back -- you won't believe your eyes!! Click HERE to watch the video! Me and my beautiful dancers: Gaz Davis and Tobias Mead Click HERE to watch a clip of me performing at Cardiff Gay Pride 2013! This Friday I am excited to be headlining at Catwalk4Change, a SOLD OUT fashion event organised by Models of Diversity. This fabulous night is to benefit MacMillan Cancer Research and Mind charities.

Well let’s just say my summer holiday started off with a bang! I literally almost did a “Home Alone” with my 11 year old son on the way to the airport – six people, 10 bags — it all got a little too much! Then when I got to the airport I only counted nine bags! Where’s my head at?? I was on my way to the States to drop three of my four kids off at their various summer programmes and I obviously had waaaaaayyyyyy too much on my mind!
I spent a lovely week with my hubby and daughter in Italy but was also excited to perform a weekend of Gay Pride events – first in Brighton and then in Leeds!
X Factor’s MK1!
My beautiful dancers!
MC of Gay Pride Leeds and some of my lovely fans!
What an amaaaaazing weekend! It is still so surreal to see tens of thousands of people dancing and singing the words to the songs I wrote! I don’t think I’ll ever come down from that high!

I’m excited to pick up my boys in the States this week and spend time with the whole family in glorious St Tropez the end of the month! So keep your eyes out for some pictures on my social sites!
Then on August 31st I’m off to perform at Cardiff Mardi Gras! Opening for the amazing Beverly Knight!
Another exciting upcoming show is on the 6th September where I’ll be headlining at an event in LONDON called Catwalk4Change put on by Models of Diversity! MoD is a fantastic, inspirational group of women who believe that fashion should be depicted by “real” women of all races, shapes and sizes! It will be a terrific night of fashion, music and celebs! The evening is to raise awareness for Macmillian Cancer support. So I hope you will come see the show! CLICK HERE to get tickets!
I hope you are all enjoying the rest of this fabulous summer!! Thank you all for your support!
