Justin Bieber Purpose Tour with Forever21



"I'm telling you, people. Everyday we wake up is another blessing. Follow your dreams and don't let anyone stop you. Never say never.” 
― Justin Bieber


For the final post in my Forever21 series I have some exciting news. Forever21 have made every Beliebers dream come true this month by announcing that they will be releasing a JustinForever Collection. The bad news is that almost all of the collection is solely US based... Boo! The good news is that us UK dwellers can get our hands on just one select piece, this FAN-tastic satin bomber. The bomber jacket features an embroidered "Bieber" graphic on the chest, and "Purpose Tour" embroidered on the back. It also has a ribbed collar, striped trim, long sleeves with ribbed cuffs, and a snap-button front making it an AW16 essential for all fans, myself included. The jacket is on sale now on the US site and will be on the UK site this month. To celebrate the news I am talking about three times where songs from Justins Purpose album has been the soundtrack to my life  








Love yourself

"Cause if you like the way you look that much
Oh, baby you should go and love yourself
And if you think that I'm still holdin' on to somethin'
You should go and love yourself"


It was Friday night when the text came through. In the Whatsapp group usually reserved for planned excursions to wine bars and the odd cartoon scooped from Facebook and plonked between us all to unified mirth. Someone had been dumped and she needed us. We all gathered together like a bandage over the wound. We stemmed tears with wine as we consoled, ate our combined cliched body-weight in chocolate and ultimately united in the view that she was better off without him. All of this set to the to the soundtrack of JB. He could go and love himself and that was ok. Because we loved her and we sang as much, in much less dulcet tones  



Get used to it

"If you got a diamond for all of your passion
Diamond for your dedication
You could be icy like cake and icy for every occasion
Gotta go hard, babe"


10.30pm and I was sat at my desk. If I poked my head out of my office I could just about see my bed, it looked inviting. The 57 unanswered emails in my inbox told me that it would be a long time before I got to lie in it. My head hurt from staring at the screen and drinking too many lukewarm coffees. Boxes of clothes, shoes and make-up littered the floor and I knew that they would all need to photographed that week. I was at breaking point and then I started to listen, to take in and to process the lyrics that were playing from my laptop. How they were telling me to seize the moment, to go hard and to not do anything unless my hearts in it. And it was. My eyes were sore, my fingers ached and I needed a 24 hour nap but someone had just messaged to thank me for an advice blog I had written and how it saved them from depression. My heart was  still in it, no matter how manic it got. It still would be


Company

"Let's set each other's lonely nights
Be each others paradise
Need a picture for my frame
Someone to share my reign"


Lying, shoulder-deep in a bubble bath at the luxury Glazebrook hotel with Dan, my champagne glass held unsteadily aloft. It was glass number 3. Dan had requested that I put some music on and recoiled at the suggestion of Justin Bieber but the sound of his gentle humming a few minutes later reassured me that I had him convinced. We were each others company, us alone for a change as it was our first ever night away from our daughter. This song always reminds me of that night, of the shared bubble-baths, the laughter, the beautiful three-course dinner, the extravagantly elegant bed and all that went on within its embrace
