4: Wings by Little Mix
I’ve loved these four since X Factor! Their debut single after the group’s winner’s cover, this song did VERY well for itself on the charts. The whole track is upbeat, fresh and has some really empowering and encouraging lyrics for anybody who listens to this song. These wings are made to fly!
3: Chasing The Sun by The Wanted
Club track and on the soundtrack for Ice Age: The Meltdown, The incredibly strong and powerful chorus is the best part of this song. It’s fun, summery and just wants to make you have a good time! The Wanted made some REALLY good songs!
2: Euphoria by Loreen
This track won the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 and was a huge chart topping hit in Sweden! This will probably sound strange, but I feel slightly magical and festive when I play this song. You kind of do get a euphoria from this track!
It’s been a while since I did a life update, that’s because I’ve been doing a lot of Horsey stuff!
I celebrated my birthday a couple of weeks ago, I got lots of perfumes that I plan to review on here soon.
Usually I ride and work with bigger sized horses, so I’ve been mixing up lately and been grooming and taking care of two Shetland ponies called Jester and Polly!
Polly has a white coat and is quite shy, she likes to be groomed around her mane and if you give her neck an itch, she’ll raise her head up and actually SMILE!
Jester loves attention, and gets green-eyed quite easily. He too likes mane grooming but he just can’t seem to stop wriggling around when you’re doing it!
It’s really fun to look after them, they’re so funny in their own special ways. I’ve taken bigger horses out into the local woods before, but never a Shetland, so I may try that out with Polly (more confident with new things) in the coming weeks! I’m also due to get my haircut tomorrow, look forward to having it a bit shorter!
This brand new fragrance, released during the Valentine’s Season, joins Blue Glow and (fan-made) Green Glow in colour glows in Jennifer Lopez’s very popular Glow fragrance series.
The bottle is glass and in a rose red shade. Speaking of roses, the charm on this glow (The glow bottle typically come with beautiful charms) is a ankle, with a metallic sliver rose hanging from it.
The top is romantic with wild berries, black currents and pomelo keep this top juicy and fresh.
The heart is filled of love, rose, frangipani, apple blossom and violet leaf make the middle, a delicate one.
The base is bursting with beauty, vanilla, skin musk and cashmere woods round off this fragrance of romance.
7: Feel The Love by John Newman
This song is so easy to sing along and it’s one of my personal karaoke classics. I think of hot summery days in my garden when I hear this!
6: 30 Days by The Saturdays
I remember going on evening drives to all the different beaches that we had back when we lived in Scotland, and I played this song during them. It brings back such beautiful memories to me and that’s why it’s on this list!
5: Titanium by David Guetta and Sia
There’s such a good and important message to this song, about getting back up when knocked down, and being stronger than titanium itself during good and bad times alike. It’s in my all-time favourite songs!
Jennifer Lopez’s Glow line, has often taken on the theme of going to interesting cities of the world. L.A Glow, Miami Glow & Rio Glow. Now Jlo goes to England with delicious fruits, British flowers and sensual musks.
The bottle sparks interest with a three long top stripe effect on the Glow bottle. The colours of the stripes of a light red, baby blue and a snowy white, like the Union Jack (a flag of which also appears on the cap of this bottle).
The ‘Jlo’ charm from the original Glow is back, this time in a bright red.
The top is delightful, banana, strawberry, bergamot and orange.
The heart is a floral paradise, peony and rose, come with lavender and poppy.
The base is sensual, ending off the fragrance with white musk, dark chocolate and some sea notes.
10: Diamonds by Rihanna
Rihanna sings beautifully on this romantic ballad. There’s some great visual representations in the music video for this song and one thing’s for sure, I always get chills at the very beginning of this track!
9: Sweet Nothing by Calvin Harris
Wow this song makes me feel a mixture of good emotions, happy, passionate and upbeat are among those emotions. This song’s chorus is undoubtedly my favourite part of it!
8: We Are Young by Fun
The title (and bandname) say it all for this track! There’s a simple message behind the song, very easy lyrics. I really like how there’s nothing about this track that’s too complicated!
And my number 1 song of 2011 is……………
1: Louder. Dj Fresh & Sian Evans
I think of that summer when I hear this song, its high energy, danceable and just made for a good time and fun! It was a close call between this and the others on this list, but Louder beat them out to become my top song of 2011!
It’s the end of my hits of 2011 list, I’ll start my 2012 list soonish and in the meanwhile, be sure to google all the names of the songs on the list if you aren’t already heard them!
The Sixth instalment to the Shakira Elixir line, Sunset Elixir is inspired by the beauty of its namesake and the passion of summers.
The elixir bottle returns, this time with a gradient effect, with a light orange at the top, a deep purple in the middle and the ending is a navy blue.
The top notes represent energy, with pear, lemon, blood orange & peach.
The middle stuns, with cherry blossom, tuberose and lavender.
The base is a graceful one, with white musk, amber and patchouli.
4: With Ur Love. Cher Lloyd & Mike Posner
I think it is an incredibly innocent song, with such sweet lyrics about first loves and being on top of the world with love. Fourth place definitely deserves this amazing song!
3: On The Floor. Jennifer Lopez & Pitbull
Entering the top three with this HUGE hit from 2011. This a great club track and good for parties. I have a perfume from Jennifer called L.A Glow, that makes me think of this song when I wear it!
2: What a Feeling. Alex Gaudino & Kelly Rowland
Oh wow I used to dance in my back garden in Scotland to this song, it was the most played song on my Ipod that summer and I’ll always remember having fun in outside when I hear this song!
