Christmas Spotlight: Rosie Blake

Rosie’s 3 Essential Christmas Songs Playlist

So first up is OBVIOUSLY Mariah. This song, (ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS) is just genius. It didn’t matter where you are it is IMPERATIVE that you sing along. In fact I believe it is PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE to hear this song and NOT sing along.

After you have grown hoarse from replays of the above you can hot it up a bit with some SANTA BABY (the original 1953 version please by Eartha Kitt). Please focus on your pouting and bad seductive dancing. Best done in very ugly Christmas jumper.

Lastly I’m a sucker for a classic. This one is played by my mother as we all join in the descant around the piano (yes we are THAT family). MARY’S BOY CHILD – a corker of a song and a guarantee of maximum festive cheer in the Blake household.

So there it is… My list of essential Christmas listening. Happy Christmas All!

About Rosie Blake

Rosie spent her university years writing pantomimes based on old classics. The 2003 production of ‘The Wizard of Odd: Search for the Ruby Strippers’ enjoyed critical acclaim. This was followed a year later with a successful showing of ‘Harry Potter: The Musical’ (complete with moving opening number, ‘In my Cupboard I will Stay’).

Rosie went on to write a winning short story in the La Senza/Little Black Dress Short Story Competition and was shortlisted in a few others including the ‘Women and Home’ annual competition and the Daily Mail ‘Opening Paragraph’ Competition. She started writing novels and after some false starts, and horrendous jobs that she wishes to keep a closely guarded secret (or write about in the future), Rosie wrote How to Get a (Love) Life, which will be published in January 2014 by Novelicious Books.

Rosie likes baked items, taking long walks by the river and speaking about herself in the third person.
