Today it's International Women's Day and I want to dedicate this post to a new feature called Beauxoxo Girl that will be interviews and stories from YOU: my beautiful customers and friends!
There's nothing I love more than seeing and hearing of women being kind, supportive and loving to each other. It's so special to see supportive comments and messages exchanged between my beautiful femmes, and the community I am part of from every corner of the globe.
So first of all, let me introduce you to Ruth Merian, one of my darling customers who has always so kindly supported me and the work I do at Beauxoxo. With the voice of an angel, she has recently released her new single called 'Unconditional Love' and she's here today to share her music journey and inspirations with Beauxoxo!
When did you first start singing?
I started singing at the age of 9 when I was noticed by my teacher. I have been singing every day since.
Who are your musical inspirations?
I have so many.. From growing up they are Coldplay, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Christina Aguilera, Sugababes and 90s dance music...I have so many!!
What kind of music do you listen to today?
I listen to everything! If I love it and it touches my soul I listen to it. If I like a song I am really bad for overplaying it!
What was the inspiration for your new single?
Unconditional Love is the best kind of love. I think it’s important to love people for who they are and not what they have....e.g money, cars.
Where would you most like to perform?
I would love to perform at any big festival, this would be my dream!
Who would you most like to open for?
Coldplay would be my goal because when I see them live I always picture myself on stage with them! I would be honoured to open for any band/artist It would be amazing!
If you weren't singing, what would you be doing?
No idea, that worries me so I don’t think about it!
Do you enjoy writing music and/or lyrics?
I love it, I am not the best writer in the world but I write how I feel and it helps me. I am currently working on my writing skills.
What do you think about when you're performing?
Haha, That would be telling! I do often picture myself in the ocean feeling free! It does depend on my emotions and feelings at that time!
What else can we expect from you in the future?
I am so excited. New dance music, covers and working with amazing producers and amazing people in the industry. I am going to push myself and fears further than ever to achieve the best music I can.
And finally, what is your favourite Beauxoxo hair accessory?
I love them all so much Georgie. But it has to be my purple gingham headband. The quality is amazing, Bows are perfect and the service is the best! (Below Ruth wears the Gingham Wire Headband in Lilac)
Thank you so much to Ruth for being my first Beauxoxo Girl! Please do be sure to check out Ruth's music right here.
One of the most important things to me has always been the humanness involved in my business. It's always been the people, the connection, and getting to know you all that really make my heart sing! And I can't wait to feature more of you very soon!
