For the last year and two months I have had my show called the Electronic Dance Session on CRY104FM but I grew tired of EDM and it no longer was what it used to be. I never knew what kind of genre DJ I was until I went to Tomorrowland in 2012, after that unbelievable amazing experience I learned what EDM was and I was able to label myself as an EDM DJ and went on to play on a popular pirate radio station in Cork.
Up until recent months I had amazing gigs and radio shows playing only EDM but since the summer I stopped listening to EDM, it wasn’t for me anymore, all I listened to all summer was electronic house music (and some Lana Del Rey) I didn’t like the recent EDM tracks that were being released and found myself playing all the older stuff over and over until I hated it, so…. I made the decision to change my show!
Tonight I called into the station early to join my fellow DJ, DJ Kodexx for a catch up while he was doing his show but like always he gets me on air and we chat and also abuse the life out of one another (yes, on air. Lol) he also asked me “when are you gonna mention me on your blog?” To which I replied “when I have more content and more readers” and in his response it was he, not I that said “expect to lose them all then” so now that he has been mentioned…. bye my fellow readers 😭
We had a great craic on his show called the weekend launchpad, we had such a good craic he has suggested me joining as his co-host, I agreed out of pity cause his show must be doing so bad that he needs my help (I joke 😂) we really do bounce off one another and he too suffers from Peter Pan syndrome like myself but I do have one major issue with Kodexx… while kicking off my brand new show and trying to sound very professional in my first link he threw a ball of paper in my face…. C’mon who does that? Emmm… during a live outside broadcast during the summer he threw a burger in my face while speaking on air!! Anyway he ruined my entire show and I am gonna pay him back next week!
This has been my first music blog post, hope you enjoyed it and maybe made you giggle a bit.
Lots and lots of love…. K 💜 x
I am totally hopeless! I was meant to update this after doing the live periscope with Whatsalon. Well it did go well, I was very nervous at first but the second time we went live I was totally relaxed. You’d think with me being a radio DJ I’d have some confidence being “live” but no, no I do not! Here is the look I did for Whatsalon on periscope.
I had so much fun with Naomi doing this, at one point she was having trouble with her phone and asked a tech guy to come in and help, he had no idea what we were doing and he looked at me with concern, Naomi burst out laughing, not only didn’t she introduce us but didn’t explain what we were doing. I sat there oblivious, it was actually hilarious!
So the last few weeks I haven’t updated on here because I am still trying to get used to blogging but also doing a lot of research on blogging and vlogging. A lot of my followers on Facebook want me to start doing Youtube. Santa dearest is bringing me a Sony a5000 camera this year (such a good girl, I know ;)) and I have been looking into lighting etc as that is my biggest issue, especially this time of year in Ireland when we have very few hours daylight so when I take pictures of my makeup it literally dissolves on camera but I think I found a solution to my problem after much research (now I know what those Youtubers do 😆) I am going to invest in proper lighting and backdrops in time for my Sony a5000 camera.
But before I get all the proper equipment I am embarking in another challenge. A 25 day Christmas challenge starting as of the 1st of December (which I made up again by myself…. proud!) Here is the challenge
There is a typo… Santa’s Little helper (r) I Know but didnt realise until I posted It!
Bare with me, I am only getting used to this blogging world, I will try update more often cause I do have lots to share with you 😘
Lots of love K ❤ xx
Halloween might be over but I still have one halloween/sfx look to do! Last week I had a meeting with Whatsalon, if you haven’t heard of it, it is a new app that you download to your phone and can search salons nearby and book there and then from your phone conveniently and confidentially.
During the meeting, we decided to do a live streaming of me doing an sfx makeup look tomorrow at 2pm on Periscope. Sounds like fun, been looking forward to it all week, even though i think i might be a little nervous 🙈 Still haven’t decided on what look I will be doing yet?!
I will update on here tomorrow night on how the experience was.
Loooooove…. K ❤
My Facebook “likers” I’m sure got sick of me moaning and groaning about trying to get my hair grey for many months but a few weeks ago, after a lot of research and patience I figured it out. First time around doing it myself it turned out.. meh, okay. But I got my mum to help me today cover all the bits I missed. I used schwarzkopf igora toner 0.11 on my mid length and ends and 6.32 on my roots.
It really is a high maintenance colour that fades quickly so if you can’t do it yourself, expect to be visiting your hair stylist a lot!!
While I kept checking myself out in the mirror today, totally loving my locks a man approached me and said “you got your hair done and all for Halloween” in my response I said “excuse me? Thanks very much” 😂
Will be posting again tomorrow night
Much love K x
So it has been a few weeks since I started this blog and the reason I haven’t posted anything since was because I was INSANELY busy during the month of October.
During August this year I decided to do up a 31 day Halloween makeup challenge, I chose all the themes for each day.
I couldn’t wait to get started but once the first of October came around, life got manic!! Meetings, hospital appointments, car needing nct, you name it, everything came at once 😯
I couldn’t dedicate myself to the challenge 100% as I had to rush a lot of the looks because I needed to get them done in daylight as my camera quality is bad enough during the day, it is 100 times worse at night, still though, I managed to post a look everyday and record a dubsmash (that was the fun part) 😉
It was very rewarding though strangers approach me telling me they loved the challenge and couldn’t wait each day to see what I came up with, also a few opportunities have opened up for because of the challenge, I think exciting times are ahead and goes to show if you love doing something and are passionate enough, work hard at it and dreams do come true.
Before I sign off… I have decided to do and have already put together a 25 days of Christmas makeup challenge (just cause I am a glutton for punishment 😂) but I will be prepared this time.
Much love… K ❤ x
