Featured Tastemaker of the Week


Meet Laura: Globetrotting Musician & Lifestyle Blogger

Username: @missbutlin

Location: Jersey Channel Islands

Interests: Beauty, Photography, Food, Travel

Laura’s open-mindedness and ambitious spirit has landed her around the world through her many different ventures. She’s currently a Jersey-based musician who recently released her debut album, “Modern Playground Love”. Besides being a talented songstress, she’s also the co-founder of lifestyle blog “The Life of C and H”.

“I would say the main focuses in my life are music, beauty, traveling and food – I love hosting dinner parties and in the summer, BBQs. I enjoy the simple pleasures that life can bring, and being able to document all my new findings and journeys I take on my blog makes me really happy.”

Which brings us to her favorite Deck ‘NYC l Eats’ – a running record of the must-visit places she comes across when exploring.

“On my recent trip to New York, it was so useful to quickly see which places were nearby that I’ve been longing to visit. Jersey is only 9 by 5 miles so you can imagine there are lots of places I’d like to go and Vurb lets me log the places that interest me as I come across them.”

She has a collection of such Decks featuring different cities around the world – from London to Copenhagen, and more.

“This year I’m really looking forward to more trips. So far I’ve booked Porto Rotondo and Paris, I can’t wait to explore!”

Inspired by her travels abroad, she plans on bringing the different cuisines of the world back to Jersey to share with friends.

“I’ve got an idea in my head of hosting themed dinner parties, picking a different type of cuisine and theming the night around it, but that’s a work in progress.”

“I think in life I just want to say yes to as much as possible, even if something seems challenging at the time, getting out of our comfort zones is good for us. Earlier this year I was the opening performance at the Royal Variety Humanitarian Awards where I performed one of my original tracks off my debut album. It was live streamed by YouTube. That was pretty unforgettable.”
