Adele! A Smart “Hello”!

7 Nov

  
Adele transcends everything.  4 years waiting to hear from her and she gives a wonderful sneak peak of what’s in store, by releasing the first single off of her Adele 25 project!

“Hello” has become the first song to sell one million tracks in a week, the power of download. The beautiful, heart-wrenching ballad also debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart., where in a few weeks it will be available on Nov. 20.

YouTube is already filled with videos of fans singing the songs and a few artists already doing covers! 

The Nov. 20 date has even caused some artists to change their album release dates, for the anticipated sales are going to go through the roof.  30 million sold from her last project, so the question is which way is Adele and her management going to go? 

Allow the “25” album stream online or the old fashion way; releasing the CD? Anyway you look at it, she is going to win!  By releasing the single without any heads up; was genius!!  A smart young woman she is!

Adele also looks so amazing in the “Hello” in the monochrome video, I’d analyzed each of the scenes, the set design and how wonderfully I will from now on admire wind blowing!   The vocals are amazing and the chorus is so heart felt, relatable.

25 is about knowing who I’ve become, without realizing it! I’m sorry it took so long, but you know life happened.

Fashionably, women will be looking for a faux fur coat, a simple plaid shirt and the longest eyelashes to put on!  For this beautiful gal makes you want to just try! 

So you know, Adele will be live in NYC on Nov. 17 and a TV debut of her smash hit “Hello” will air as part of an hour-long BBC special on Nov. 20. But a teaser from the taped performance is now out — and it’s worth a viewing.

The 27-year-old British songstress both sounds and looks stunning in the snippet, released Friday by BBC Music.  It marks her first TV appearance since performing “Skyfall” during the 2013 Oscar ceremony.

Can you tell I’m a lovely fan! 😉.  Ladies and Gentleman….ADELE

Jackie Kennedy-Onassis her Fashion Style! A Roland Mouret Design!

1 Dec

I was thinking of Jackie Kennedy-Onassis today, she was such a classy lady!  There are so many styles in her play book!  While looking for dresses, her style just popped up again!  I said to myself…this is so Jackie O!

Designed by Roland Mouret! Its named the Myrtha folded Sheath dress, a very popular design!  Is it not absolutely gorgeous???!!!!

This designer’s dress is premiered at Neiman Marcus, Lyst.com and other flagship stores.   However…for those who love to sew or know a person who loves to sew, a vintage Vogue® pattern can be modified where needed to give you the same look with a beautiful fabric choice!  Although I’m still looking, a sheath dress never, never, ever goes out of style!

Vintage Vogue Pattern V8768

French born Roland Mouret is noted for the wonderful storm around his now legendary Moon dress made famous by Victoria Beckham.

Such is the popularity of the design that the first batch at Harvey Nichols in London sold out within days. In March 2008 it was announced that Roland would start working with Victoria Beckham on a limited edition capsule collection of little black dresses.   From there, it has been nothing but up for this designer, shoes, parfums and a flagship store located in London, 8 Carlos Place, Mayfair, London W1K 3AS.

Royal Baby, Kate and William’s Bundle of Joy! London is Waiting! It’s A BOY!

12 Jul

royal crownLast  have been calling back and forth to the UK, awaiting the news on the arrival of a princess!  Wanting to know what her name will be! Duchess of Cambridge’s due date was yesterday!  <I’m so wanting the child to be a little girl, but it’s a boy it is ! A prince has arrived!>

Following the newborn’s arrival, William will take a two-week paternity leave before resuming his Royal Air Force duties. Middleton and the baby, meanwhile, will shuttle between London and her parents’ home in Berkshire.  Come September, the entire brood will move into Kensington Palace’s Apartment 1A, where the royal mom-to-be has been putting the finishing touches on a redecorated nursery.

The royal baby is to be born in the private Lindo wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London where Prince William was born 31 years ago.  Prince Harry was born there also.

Prince Charles, the heir apparent, was present for the births of his sons and Prince William, second in the line to the throne, plans to be there for his first child.

I’m told from a reliable source, my Auntie Mum! She’s say it’s stated that bundle of joy is set to hit the road with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on a spring 2014 royal baby tour.

I happy for the couple!  Yayyyyyy!   Let’s see what will be the young prince’s name  🙂

Congratulations!

Congratulations!

Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, are expecting their first baby! An early announcement because she has been hospitalized! Wishing her a speedy recovery and a healthy pregnancy! As my Aunt Vadney (she called me from London, just now!) would say “Simply lovely and bloody good news”. I wonder if they have a baby girl, will they name her Diana… 🙂
