Santa Pod Raceway

I had the most AMAZING time at Santa Pod Raceway last weekend! I went to Dragstalgia, a weekend dedicated to drag racing, hot rods and bikes from a bygone era with classic dragsters, altereds, hot rods, American muscle and more! There was a Championship Drag Racing and Run What Ya Brung sessions on the track along with a Jet Dragster and 2 seater Dragster Rides. Off track there was Show & Shine, live music, traders and a historic car display. 🏎️🏍️

It was a bit too hot for me, but lucky for me I brought the last Japanese style bamboo parasol! ⛱️

I absolutely LOVED it! The roaring sound of burnouts is something I have never heard live before and it was both terrifying and exciting at the same time! I loved the stalls full of vintage and retro clothing, homeware, jewellery, crafts and collectables. From the 1920s to the 1990s, every era covered for vintage and retro enthusiasts to enjoy! There was also camping, a Fun Fair and plenty of bars and caterers with tasty food and drinks. And the cars were unbelievable!








I have always loved vintage cars! They are like works of art to me... I love the way owners leave their cars open so people can look inside of them. Check out these engines...






Here's a photo of the drivers queuing up around the back before their race...


Cacklefest cars...





I love these beautiful interiors...



If I were ever to own a motorbike, I guess it would have to be one like this one! AC7 :-)


If you have even the slightest bit of interest in cars and/or bikes, I highly recommend going! The atmosphere was electrifying, you really do need to experience it live! Have a look on the website for future events here: http://www.santapod.co.uk/dragstalgia.php 


Absolutely AWESOME!

Multitasking Master

As always, lots going on at the moment! Here's a quick rundown...

I landed my first two narrating jobs with Zeff Music! 😎 I narrated two recordings at Unit 2 Studios with Adie Hardy for their new range of Audio Branding solutions. Have a look here: http://zeffmusic.com/audio-branding.php

Composer/narrator Anna-Christina recording narration at Unit 2 Studios, London
Obviously because of Music Audio Stories, this is the sort of thing Adie and I are really good at but this was a new experience for us and we both enjoyed the session. To be honest, I wouldn't have thought about narrating for other people's projects but it was such a cool experience, I would definitely consider doing it again!

Design Your Ship


I feel blessed to have worked together with Adie Hardy and Founder/Head Trainer at Design Your Ship, Andreea Vasile.

We recorded 3 tracks which include a 20 minute morning meditation, a 2 minute rampage meditation and an instrumental track. These meditations help you to align to the love force and impress on the subconscious mind beliefs which create Gratitude, Joy and Prosperity. I loved every minute of working on this project and I am extremely proud of it!

If you are a Speaker, entrepreneur or someone thinking about recording your meditations, training programs or turning your books into audios but feel unsure of the experience, read Andreea's Blog post here: http://designyourship.com/the-emotional-journey-of-creatin

I'm really good at this!

Soundgirls


I'm extremely proud to now be listed in Soundgirls.org 'Directory of Women in Professional Audio and Production'! SoundGirls supports women working in professional audio and music production by highlighting their success and providing a place for them to connect, network, and share advice and experiences. They work to inspire and empower young women and girls to enter the world of professional audio and music production.

I feel incredibly grateful to be part of this community. I'm like a cat... I've lived so many different lives already but this one, the one I'm living right now, is the best one of all! I'm so grateful for the people who have chosen to work with me and given me the chance to spread my musical wings.

Up and up I go...
