Mucic Monday ~ Disclosure Sam Smith Latch Acoustic

music monday, sam smith, latch, diclosure, acoustic, remix

Latch by Disclosure featuring Sam Smith was (still is - in my opinion) a huge floor filler. As much as I love the original I've recently found the Acoustic remix. Sam Smith is undoubtedly a breakout artist, his vocals are slick and soulful, I could listen to them all day.

I think it's really easy to get lost in the beat and the track and not take in the lyrics of an up tempo number. The good thing about this acoustic version of Latch it that you get the sentiment of the song, it's actually romantic and sweet, I genuinely feel moved by this version, it gave me a new found love for a song that I'd always taken to be a club banger.

Well you've heard my thoughts what are yours, have you heard the acoustic version of Latch before? And how impressive are Sam Smith's vocals?

Thailand Vlog Part 1

You may have seen my Thailand Photo Diary post where I shared with you a few snaps from our trip in April. We had the best time in Phuket and wanted to capture as much of our trip as possible so did some vlogging. I have to admit neither of us are pro bloggers but we gave it a go (and actually had fun in the process). The best part was being able to look back at our footage and have all the beautiful memories from our trip come flooding back.

I hope you enjoy the blog, let me know in the comments if you'd like to see more follow me around style vlogs. If you haven't already, head over to my YouTube Channel WhatReneeMade and subscribe.

I'm so excited to share today's post with you. I was invited to the Michelle Keengan For Lipsy Launch on Tuesday, at the very glitzy ME Hotel.

As I approached ME I was hugely impressed with the shiny light fixtures. A suave gentleman on reception guided me to the lift and told me to go up to the 9th floor, a little high up I thought - but Oh well lets roll with it. When the lift opened, I thought I was in a swanky night club. I was greeted by black floors and shiny black walls. After a little wonder along the corridor I found the entrance to the suite where the Lipsy Love Michelle Launch was taking place.

There was a real buzz as I walked in people were so excited to meet Michelle and to get the low down on the collection. As I was was dutifully doing my bit for health and safety by signing in I looked up and the lady herself Michelle Keegan was standing in front of me chatting away to a journalist. Michelle looked incredible great tan, flowing locks and a cracking jumpsuit from the collection. Once in the suite I took the spiral staircase that lead to a roof terrace and bar with the most stunning panoramic views of London. The city really does look beautiful in the sunshine.

As lovely as the hotel is and the whole reason you're here is to hear about the collection. Michelle Describes it as being sophisticated. I would say it's definitely that. Lots of neutral tones and lace accents peppered the collection. Many of the pieces would be great to wear for a special occasion, however there are lots of versatile items to. My favourite being the black biker jacket, a wardrobe staple by most standards. I also really loved the monochrome double breasted shirt dress, I've always wanted a piece like this! Special nod to the pale pink perforated pencil skirt. It's a brave option but I think would look brilliant with a pair of barley there heels and a cami top. The collection will be available from Lipsy soon so keep your eyes peeled.

It was also Michelle's Birthday, to celebrate she was presented with a lovely cake featuring her modelling an outfit from the collection. We all piped up with a chirpy rendition of Happy Birthday, Michelle looked genuinely surprised and overwhelmed. It really couldn't have been a more perfect Launch; stunning location - check, Fab collection - check, happy designer - check and beautiful London sunshine what more could you want?
