Lauren’s Life

Support your local artists – Birmingham

Hey Guys,

I know I don’t normally blog about music and I know this isn’t Christmas themed so I apologise. Recently an artist sent me his EP via Instagram to give a listen to and some feedback. I just loved the EP so I decided to review it and share it with you all!

I think it’s important to support local and smaller artists in the music industry. I’m a huge music fan and I even used to do grades in piano and singing when I was younger and in high school!


I want to Introduce you to Jake Warner. He is a young musician from Leicester.

Jake started writing music two years ago. He writes his own music and says that he loved creating every song on this EP! Life is a story that inspired his lyrics.

“We’ve got the rest of our lives if we are gonna be together, it’s only hard for a while but when I see you we will say wasn’t that easy because we were meant to be” 

His friends and fellow fans love his lyrics and continue to support him on his journey by attending his gigs and sharing their appreciation.

Jake hosted a headline show last year in Leicester and he was overwhelmed with the love and support that he received and he says that the feeling of the positive reactions, support and after show adrenaline are addictive and something that he hopes will continue to grow!

Jake’s new album will be out in December just in time for Christmas. I really enjoy his music and cute lyrics about love and girls.

He has a very soothing tone with the guitar and his singing and I’ve already added his new EP to my chilled out playlist and favourite songs playlist. His style reminds me of artists such as Ed Sheeran, James Bay and Shawn Mendes.

I think that he’s very talented and produced a high-quality EP with some really catchy tunes included. I’m sure I will find myself humming his songs. His song are all his own too rather than covers which I think is great.

Jakes Social Channels: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube

What did you think of the EP? Please let me know in the comments below!

I personally loved the EP and I can’t wait to hear more of Jake’s music in the future! 🙂


See you next Sunday for the return of my Christmas blog posts!

BoHo Queen Jewelry Review*

Hi Guys,

Boho Queen jewelry recently got in touch with me offering me a statement necklace of my choice available from their very cute and unique website. Boho Queen makes unique necklaces, accessories, and swimwear all at an affordable price whilst still offering great quality.

They say that their website offers products fit for a queen – that sounds good to me?!


I picked out the Simple Shells necklace from their website as I thought it would be perfect for the many beach holidays that I have coming up both this year and next year!

I purchased this necklace and received it three days later bubble wrapped! There was no cost for shipping and I found the price of the necklace to be very affordable.

I am actually an ambassador for Boho Queen so I did receive a discount but even at its original price I find the necklace to be very good quality for its cost!

I would highly recommend that you go check out Boho Queens website. It’s the perfect place to find some high quality yet affordable accessories and swimwear. Whether you’re jetting off on a winter holiday or in need of some new statement necklaces Boho Queen is the perfect place!

DISCOUNT CODE: Get 20% off Boho Queens whole site using the code: BoHoQueen


Let me know what you think of the shell necklace and what your favorite pieces from boho Queens site are?

See you next Sunday at 6pm!

Travel Guide – Menorca

Hi Guys,

Recently I visited one of the Balearic Islands called Menorca. I have been going to this island since I could walk so over the years I have discovered the best restaurants, bars and beaches.  It is a lovely Island that I recommend you visit for a few weeks!

It is an affordable two-hour flight from London, Luton airport. The people on the island are lovely, they speak good English, the island is not too commercialised and everything is very affordable!
