2 nights ago I got to stay in a beautiful house in Palos Verdes, like a ridiculous house, with little hobbit style windows, spanishy vibes, crazy tropical plants and a beautiful terrace and the most insane cliff/ocean/harbour views. It’s funny because it totally related to the video concept I just worked on, from palos verdes you can see the whole of LA in the far distance but you’re like smack bang by the ocean… as soon as I step out of the city and get face to face with mother nature I feel this burst of freedom and relaxation that I don’t get from anything else, it’s amazing when you just slow down and appreciate the planet. We are so lucky and it gives me immediate travel fever, I want to see every ocean and landscape. Anyway I stayed there with my boyfriends family for my last night in LA for a minute, it was perfect. Especially after 2 insane moves in 2 months!!! It’s been a bit hectic lately.
So I just got to London, I’m staying at home with my family right now <3 I haven’t been home in almost a year, it’s a weird thing splitting a life in 2. I have my history, self, family, pets, life long friends, career options in London and the UK and a dog, boyfriend, newer friends, new experiences, dreams I want to achieve and different career options Stateside. It’s a lot for an anxiety ridden OCD crazy town brain like mine. Sometimes I sit staring at a wall wondering how it’s all going to work out. And then when I have spent pointless hours worrying about things I cannot control I accept it will all just work itself out each step of the way.
Most importantly, I need to connect with my roots right now. There’s some really exciting music being born out of connecting with that for me. And also, London and my home is where I get boosted with confidence and the sass that I need to restart a campaign and I feel pretty passionately that it is where I should be starting from with a new record release. So I’m here, to do it right and get this shit goin! This is after all, where it all began. I’m so excited to be releasing new music soon. like sooooooooo soon. and soooooo excited. like your ears should be smiling right now. :))))))!!!!!!
