My Top Ten Feel Good Tunes

I don't know about anyone else, but I feel like I've been through the mill of late - I had both a sickness bug and a cold at the same time around Mother's Day, and still feel a bit lacking in the energy department, So I thought what better way to cheer myself up with a run down of my favourite feel good tunes. I hope you'll all join in and share yours below as well. The sun's come out so let's banish the bugs and make some feel good playlists.

1. Walking On Sunshine - One of my favourite summer tunes which I grew up with, and I absolutely love dancing around to this track. Just full of positive vibes.

2. Living On A Prayer - I'm a bit of an American Anthems/Soft Rock junkie, and this is one of Bon Jovi's classics. Perfect to wake me up of a morning.

3. Reach For The Stars - I've always loved my pop music, so see no shame in admitting I also used to listen to S Club 7 a lot - and I used to do the dance routine for the chorus as well!!

4. China In Your Hand - T-Pau classic, and although not uptempo - I think everyone needs a soaring ballad in their lives, and a beautiful song is great therapy.

5. Matt Cardle - Hit My Heart - Very recent this choice, but it's just so damn catchy it had to make the list.

6. Man In The Mirror - MJ was another artist I grew up listening to, and although funnily enough I only bought a couple of albums after he died - this is one of my favourite songs of all time - and favourite songs always make me feel good.

7. Don't Stop Believing - I only recently got into Journey through hearing a band cover this track, but was instantly hooked. The Greatest Hits album is full of musical goodness, but I love this anthem the best. A song that never gets old.

8. Celebration - Kool and the Gang - I danced to a very funky version of this in a school P.E production and ever since have got a buzz from hearing it. Great vibes and lyrics.

9. Sweet Little Mystery- Wet Wet Wet - Bit of a theme here, as this is another track I grew up with thanks to my parents CD collection, and I can't resist singing along to the infectious lyrics. If I'm skipping tracks this is the Wet Wet Wet track I keep coming back too.

10. Written In The Stars - Although my music loves tend to be more commercial they do veer all over the place, including some R&B. Tinie Tempah has done a great job all round on this track, one for my playlist when I fancy a good groove.

Well that's my feel good playlist, and I am already feeling a little bit better thinking of all the tracks. Would love to hear what music makes you feel good. Feel free to leave a comment below, and if you like my blog you can find me on Blog Lovin - just click the link to the right.

Action Themed Handmade Card - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Hi Everyone, Hope you're all having a good week! Just want to say thanks to all of you that have been reading and commenting on my blog posts, especially the recent craft ones, joining in with the Daring Cardmakers challenges. I don't always have time to blog along, but this week the theme was 'action', and it was the perfect excuse to make a card with a topper kit I have had laying around for ages. The card I made is perfect for sports fans of all ages, and as a big diving fan, I'm sure this one will be a lot of fun for all. My main image and some of the extra bits are from a Hunkydory kit, I just love the image of the guy diving and his reflection shown in the water.  Copyright 2017 - These City Days I found some aperture cards in my stash and I'm enjoying decorating round the edges and adding some dimension to the designs. This time I went for a few sentiments, stars punched from holographic card, and some jute twine from Baker Ross.  I am slight

Cake Of The Week - Weetabix Loaf Cake (Guest Post)

  Have you had your Weetabix?!   As promised in last week's post, I bring you a healthy cake ( well as healthy as cake can be!) that is full of fibre, uses no fat, contains one of your five a day, and is as cheap as chips to make. Has my fab marketing pitch sold it to you yet? The quirk to this recipe? The main ingredient is that old breakfast favourite, Weetabix! I can almost see a few noses wrinkle up but please don't let this put you off. This is a lovely moist, fruity bake with a slightly chewy outer that sits perfectly with a teatime cuppa, and is great for lunch boxes as it travels really well.   I would definitely recommend giving this bake a whirl to share with your nearest and dearest. Don't spill the beans about the main ingredient and see if anyone can guess!   For this week's bake you will need the following equipment:  a 2lb loaf tin, baking paper, a mixing bowl,  a wooden spoon and a teaspoon.   Ingredients: 3 Weetabix biscuits ( own

Daring Cardmakers - Trim The Tree Craft Challenge - Cross Stitch Card

Hi Everyone, It's the start of another week, and I'm fresh from seeing some of my favourite musical friends, for the first time in a long while, at our Christmas light switch on. I have some video, but I have never edited video clips in my life, so while I figure out what I'm doing, time to catch up on some other blog posts. I have joined in and submitted craft projects to the Daring Cardmakers Challenge before, and it's been great fun. So I just want to thank everyone who has commented on my previous posts, and add to this weeks challenge 'Trim The Tree'. I am working my way through a few small cross stitch kits from magazine free gifts, and this tree design really stuck out from my stash. It was easy and fun to stitch, and I even tweaked it a bit to add some gold glitter for the star at the top. Instead of hanging it in the supplied aperture card though, I found a plant pot topper with 25 on, and mounted it on a card just above that. The finished car
