Just treated myself on Fair Share Music to a **whole bunch** of albums and eps that i’ve been playing to death on Spotify… Rae Morris, Dan Kroll, Kodaline, Foy Vance, Vance Joy and the new Coldplay song, I’m not patient enough to wait for the album to get it on my iPod! Really looking forward to more music from Rae Morris, her songs are beautiful.

Emily’s Hair

"What makes Emily unique is that by age three her golden [brown] locks were long enough to be made into a wig for a child with cancer. As Emily states in the video, "just cut some off and give it to a kid". What an incredible lesson to learn from a 3 year old, when we have lots of something - don’t hold onto it, give it away to someone else who needs it more. Emily James is just your typical little 3 year old princess. She loves nail polish, frilly dresses and when she can get her hands on it, mums lipstick. Her favourite movie is Tangled and she is especially fond of her Rapunzel dolly, which is why ‘Dolly’ got a hair cut too. When Emily said she would let Uncle Matthew cut her hair, she insisted that he would cut ‘Dolly’s’ hair first.

It was Mommy and Daddy that suggested the idea to Emily to cut her hair and donate it for cancer wigs. They sat down and explained to her that to donate her hair, she would need to cut it fairly short, and that it would be a long time before she had long hair again. They looked at pictures together of little kids with no hair, they looked at pictures of wigs and they also looked at shorter styles - and she still wanted to make the donation. It probably doesn’t hurt that in the final scenes of Tangled, Rapunzel is sporting a pretty cute bob. With that in mind, the two of them, Emily and ‘Dolly’, booked an appointment with ‘Uncle Matthew’. (Matthew Collins, L’Oreal ID Artist, celebrity hairstylist and co-owner at Brennen Demelo Studios).”

My beautiful friend Rach wrote a great blog about buying well for Fairtrade Fortnight. And then she ran a half marathon at the weekend for Christian Aid who she’s interning with. Brill effort! x
