Shuffle Play Questions

Shuffle Play Questions - Lauren Mayhew AuthorI’ve done one of these before, but I’m almost certain I cheated a  little. There were either answers that made no sense at all, or I was embarrassed to admit to some of the music on my iPod. This time, I’m gonna do it properly!

Here are 20 questions that I’m answering with Shuffle Play on my iPod. Hopefully some of them work well enough to be amusing. I’m going to put the title of the song first, then the artist, then the album/ single that it’s from. Continue reading “Shuffle Play Questions”


My Year in Films – 2015

Here’s my 2015 list of films/ concerts that I have been to. I’ll even let you know which were my most and least favourite.

This has been an incredible year for me. Not only have I worked super hard to be rewarded with a great job, I’ve also grown in confidence too. If 2016 is as great as 2015, I’ll be a happy girl! Continue reading “My Year in Films – 2015”

Songs to Write to

Lauren Mayhew Author MusicI know everyone is different when they write and some people like to work in complete silence, whilst others have to have music playing. I personally, cannot write in silence, but if I play familiar songs, I find myself singing along to them and not doing any writing.

I do find a lot of inspiration in music though – I don’t steal people’s lyrics, if that’s what you’re thinking. I simply mean that certain songs evoke emotions that make me want to write certain things. Continue reading “Songs to Write to”

Nathan Sykes UK Tour

You know when I said that Friday the 13th was my lucky day because I managed to get tickets to Nathan Sykes’ UK tour? The gig was amazing and I got to meet Nathan!!

He wasn’t allowed to talk because he was on voice rest but I still got to have my picture taken with him, which was a dream come true.

Here’s a photo from one of the best days of my life!

Nathan UK Tour

Friday 13th is my LUCKY DAY!

I don’t actually know why Friday the 13th is supposed to be so unlucky for people and I’m too lazy to Google it, so I’ll just play along. It seems that for me, it’s quite a lucky day!

As soon as Nathan Sykes announced that he was doing a mini tour for his new music, I knew I had to go! When I looked at the venues, London was the only one that I could get to and the hall itself looked pretty small. When I found out that the tickets went on sale at 9 a.m. I immediately asked my manager if she minded me booking tickets as soon as I came into work at 9. She’s an awesome manager so she said yes!

I must have looked like a crazy woman when walking to work this morning. I don’t think I’ve ever walked so fast in my life and so I arrived at 8.50. It was a nervous wait for the tickets to be available, but as soon as they were I started entering my details.

I’ve recently changed my bank account and it is still in the process of being switched. When my new bank card was declined I almost had a heart attack! Luckily my old card accepted the payment and I managed to get two tickets! One for me and one for my cousin, Donna.

Today could have gone absolutely terribly. It was only a few minutes after I got my tickets that the London venue was completely sold out. I’m a very lucky girl.

I’m also selling something on eBay, so fingers crossed that goes well too! Friday the 13th, you are my new best friend!!!

P.S. Be prepared for any Nathan Sykes spam that may occur on or around the 15th April!
