Nadia Rae | Good Love Music Video

“TELL ME CAN YOU KEEP A SECRET?”

Nadia Rae is a Singer-Songwriter hailing from the UK with a sound that I feel has been missing on the UK music scene for a while. There are some things you just can’t teach and that’s how I feel about Nadia Rae’s authentic and powerful vocals. If you’re new to Nadia’s music I highly recommend starting with Nadia’s cover/mashup of Medication by Damien Marley. 

It’s phenom!

On Nadia’s latest EP; YOLO you can find songs that showcase her talent for putting together strong narratives through her lyrics and her ability to convey those emotions through her solid vocals. The track Good love”  is one of my personal favourites on the EP. It’s a feel-good dancehall song and my golly is it Catchy ~ It’s the perfect summer jam we’ve all been waiting for. Infused with Summer anthem vibes it’s impossible to resist the urge to get up and dance when you hear it. It’s a fabulously produced song.

“BOY GIVE ME GOOD LOVE”



From the get-go, the energy in this video is electric. The wardrobe, setting, and authentic dancehall choreography sets the tone for the video and complements the song so well. Nadia Rae’s performance is full of fresh vibes and finesse. The routine is executed flawlessly and Nadia’s dance skills really shine throughout. I love the play on words that comes across through movement and how small changes in positions and lighting add dynamic to the music video. I found the breakdown in the song and solo dance performances particularly impressive. Cue wide angles, cut-aways, backlighting, tilted landslide angles and plenty of zooming action. The build-up in the song is mimicked with close-up lipsyncing shots which adds an unexpected but very nice touch. Continue reading “Nadia Rae | Good Love Music Video”

Each Morning I wake up, complete my AM Habits and settle down at my desk to begin working through my to-do list and emails. This pic was taken a while back and I remember on that morning I decided to take my work to a local spot as they do the best Vanilla Chai Lattes in town ( I was caffeine free ~ short-lived!)

Golden Hour

If there is one thing I enjoy about going through my emails, it’s sifting through them to find what I like to call the gems. These gems are the newsletters that inspire me and add value in some way or another. Whether it’s getting notified that one of my wishlist items is back in stock, discovering a new recipe or an article on “How to ____” (fill blank with something about being successful) ~ I’m always learning something new.

Here is a short list of newsletters and mailing lists that I adore. Continue reading “Finally,​ there’s a HelloHenrietta.com Newsletter + Noteworthy Favourites”

What I do when I’m {feeling} anxious or depressed {Mental Health Awareness Month} In Real Time #1

It’s the end of May and I couldn’t let the month go out without highlighting Mental Health Awareness Month. I’m a huge advocate for Mental health and everything that falls underneath that umbrella, so this post is something I felt compelled to write. I am very familiar with mental health issues and am so proud of the leaps that society has taken in terms of creating awareness, slowly squashing the stigma attached and supporting those coming from all different walks of life who need it.

I’ll mention this at the start of the post just in case you don’t make it all the way down to the end. If you are someone who battles with depression or anxiety please know that you’re not alone. Please seek guidance, find a support system and above all else be kind to yourself and stay strong. You are valued. You’re important and your existence is worth fighting for.

I’m starting a new series on this blog called “In real time”. Concept; I sit down, Streamline my mind, write emotively and hit publish. I will, of course, proofread my pros but other than that no tweaking. I love organic content in any form and feel as though in today’s society with social media heavily curating everything, I find myself asking “Where are the real people at?”. If you vibe with me on this one please send me a tweet ~ I could talk about this all day haha!

Just over a week ago I posted my first blog post in over a year and mentioned that I’ll be sharing with you parts of my story. I have several bases to cover so I’ve figured out that the best way to do that, is to let it all slowly unravel through my content. Let’s call this 1st base; Mental health.
