In May, I travelled to Madagascar with WaterAid where I was lucky enough to meet two amazing girls, Solo and Ze. In their village, access to clean water on tap was just a dream. Every day, they had to walk down a difficult path to a dirty pond to collect water for their families.
My decision to go to Denmark was based largely upon proximity as my life in London was particularly busy that month. My first take from Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, is that it is the most livable city I have visited on #12countries12months, even if it is very expensive.
Living as I do at the side of a river and with many beautiful lakes in the area I have no shortage of inspiration. Painting in oils is my preferred medium although I must admit oil painting can get a bit messy at times! I often work as a motivational speaker aboard cruise ships enabling me to travel the world, but always carry a sketchpad and paints in my luggage.
I may have left New York, but I was still keeping tabs on my Chelsea pals and especially on my roomie, Binky. Alex made the right decision leaving New York, and with the support of her sister, AL, Alex will soon be a faded memory.
What I'm saying to Sam Smith is that he might not want to be a spokesperson for gay rights, but as far as I care he doesn't really have a choice in the matter. If he wants to sit next to Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus at the VMAs, then he's going to have to face up to the fact that his words have weight to them now.
A quick check on twitter confirms that she's spent the past year flying across the globe daily, for tours and promo, as well as having been nominated for loads of global ''ones to watch'' and awards this year. So, she's a bona fide singer songwriter that's flying that British flag globally.
Yes, the rumours you've heard are correct. The one and only Ms Hopkins is putting her body through its paces as she consumes over 6000 calories a day in a bid to put on 3 ½ stone for a new TV documentary... Katie will then attempt to regain her previous body, showing us loosing weight ain't so hard.
When I think about Paul Gascoigne I think about his sheer resilience. His determination to provide for those he loved something that has eluded him his entire life. Yes he fell, hard. And he picked himself back up. Countless times. And as it stands he sadly has fallen more times than he has risen. But not because he had it all then threw it away further down the line.
It was evident that this photo was meant to be art (whatever that means). And the fact that it was shot by one of the world's leading photographers is meant to reinforce that claim. But while it is a powerful and strong image, it also shows that this image isn't 'feminist' as Claire Cohen, writing for the Telegraph, says, or a 'victory for small breasted women'.
Targeting Jennifer Lawrence has left us collectively wounded. She's everyone's dream BFF, the goofball next door and to invade her privacy brings the issue closer to home. It's as if it happened to a friend or even ourselves.
I sat the boys down for one of these increasingly frequent 'Brazier planning meetings' and it was clear that choosing was the easy part. I placed recipe books in front of them and was really surprised by how interested they were in making dishes they had never had before as well as some of the old favourites.
I just returned from my long summer, far away, when I saw a surprise text message. My dear friend had invited me to the friends-and-family preview night of the most hotly anticipated show in London for years - the amazing Kate Bush!
Nobody made you do this you stupid self obbssessed excuse for a women, the only person responsible for their weight gain is themselves...even I can admit that. You overate perpousfully for no other reason that no prove a point, how irresponsible and what a great example to your daughters.
Venue 13 on the Annie Get Your Gun tour and unlucky for some, you might say. This week we've been in beautiful Brighton, a cultural and theatrical mecca on the south coast and frequent keeper of my heart. I've lost count of the number of times I've considered moving here and, after some unscheduled extra time in the city, I'm understandably contemplating it once again.
We use the death of our heroes to reveal our humanity, but that Sunday morning in 1997, the death of Princess Diana did what death used to do (if only for a while): it silenced us.
Kellie's been open about her public declaration of her new identity, admitting she was pushed to speak to the media after a journalist discovered "the story" - so why has she chosen to continue being in front of the cameras, when it's plainly obvious to viewers that she still has a number of personal, emotional issues to work through?
