Favourite Things: Carole King & Sara Bareilles at the 2014 Grammy Awards

I’m a total sucker for a kickass singer songwriter. I LOVE music, and rarely don’t have something playing in the background, and my favourite is women with strong voices and swoon worthy lyrics. I think that’s why I loved last night’s performance by Carole King & Sara Bareilles – a simple, spare, but totally powerful medley of Carole’s ‘Beautiful’ and Sara’s ‘Brave’.

It’s the perfect Monday morning kickstart. Brave and beautiful? You are that, every day, all the time. Show the world.

I’m the sort of girl who you meet for coffee and end up pouring your entire heart out to. The friend you come to when you need someone to call it straight. No bullshit. No extras. Just truth.

I’m a communicator. That’s a PC way of saying I like to talk, but I also spend a lot of my time listening, and over the years, I’ve developed a sense for subtext – how one or two words can change your entire message, what people are really trying to say and how to weave the varied layers of your story into one cohesive brand message that your clients fall in love with.

When I'm not acting as editor in chief for Vivid & Brave, you can find me geeking out over words here.
