GIVEAWAY – Harmony to my Heartbeat

A few weeks ago I decided I needed a night off from blogging and the photography business and just have some downtime on my own. So I drove up the mountain to Katoomba and went to the Sally Seltmann concert at The Clarendon Guesthouse and I didn’t take my camera. I did it on purpose because I really wanted to just sit back and enjoy the show as I tend to want to share everything I do with you guys… well I was kicking myself majorly when I arrived to find the venue was so intimate that I was seated comfortably at a table within arms reach from the stage. I’ll never not take my camera again!
 I made sure I arrived with enough time to catch her supporting act, some people don’t like them but I do. I enjoy finding new music and the support acts are always so complimentary to the artist you’ve paid to see. Seltmann’s support act was the ever lovely Jessica Venables from “Jessica Says“. I’d never heard of her before but I instantly adored her work. She’s also on Seltmann’s album, I loved watching her perform, so musically talented. After her set I went to meet Jessica and gave her lots of excited, giggly praise, mentioned that I was a blogger and she gave me three copies of her single to giveaway… but more details on that later. Don’t read too much into it but her song “World without Men” is one of Aidan’s favourites, he dances and bops along to the music and even claps at the end and says “more”. I have to get it on video one day.
Seltmann’s set was brilliant, she played all the new stuff as well as some of the old New Buffalo songs I liked. I tried taking a photo on my iPhone but it just came out terrible. So instead I sipped my red lemonade, tapped my feet to the rhythm and enjoyed the show. Afterward I hung around, bought a funky bag and a copy of her CD just for you guys and asked her to sign them and told them I was splurging for my readers. She happily signed them and we had a great little chat about blogging and music and I made sure to give her Jess Chalker’s info, I just had a feeling they’d click. I was so bubbly and nervous that I forgot to ask to have a picture taken together… I tend to do that a lot. In the end I had a great night and realised that I can’t just take off my “blogger hat” as it’s now become more like a tattoo… it’s a part of who I am.
I told you I’ve been buying bits and bobs with my Nuffnang pocket money to give back to my readers, I bet you didn’t think they’d be this cool! I have three signed copies of Jessica Says singles, one copy of Heart Thats Pounding CD and a so-cute-I-want-to-keep-it-for-myself screen printed canvas tote bag. Here’s how it will work, there will be 3 winners all up:

    What gets my heart pounding? When you're waiting for THAT phone call- to find out whether you've got the job you were after, or the house that you've been saving for… the answer to all those big questions and moments in life. That's what gets my heart pounding.

    The gym and Sugar free V. I hardly ever drink it but it gets me every time.

    Love the tale. Glad you had a great night. You went without your CAMERA. Shame, my dear, shame.

    {Oh and Hubby gets my heart pounding too of course}

    What gets my heart pounding?…Standing to close to the edge of anything above 6 ft off the ground…As well as watching the snow fly against a starlit night (must be a carry over from my high school days LOL)

    What gets my heart pounding? At the moment it would have to be when I leave the room and a minute later you hear a bang or a thud, followed by the baby screams. Those few seconds it takes to investigate is the moments where I feel my heart is going to pound right out of my chest.
