2 Shoes Essex Duo
I’m sure you all remember the bubbly Essex girls that got through to the judges houses in Xfactor last year. The two lovely ladies that make up the band 2 shoes are Charley Bird and Lucy Texeira. From the heart of The only Way is Essex territory, the girls hail from Basildon and Brentwood. The girls started out as a band in 2009 but raised to the public’s attention in 2011 as the bubbly contestants in Xfactor. They managed to get through to Tulisa’s judges home in the beautiful Greek Isles.
Although they never got through to the finals they have really capitalised on their Xfactor fame and have a manager, agent and are gigging regularly which they are both over the moon with.
We invited them to talk beauty, tans, cosmetic surgery with me on our current Beauty Show “Harley Street Beauty”. Their agent Dean Midas Maynard said how bubbly they are and great on camera but I wasn’t anticipating how easy they would be to interview and their fab infectious laughter.The girls say that the X Factor experience was absoloutely
The girls admitted the journey was extremely hard phsyically and emotionally, but they enjoyed every single minute of it. Now the girls are optomistic of what the future holds, they are in the studio now working on releasing a single this year and also a new found career of TV Presenting could be in the pipeline or maybe some reality TV.
Where better to meet them and chat everything gorgeous and glam than the glossiest nightclub in Essex renowned for its positioning as one of the best clubs in Essex but also heavily popular in TOWIE..The obvious choice had to be The Sugar Hut in Brentwood owned by Mick Norcross one of the main characters in TOWIE and ran by BB and TOWIE star Kirk
While myself and the crew were in Brentwood we noticed Amy Child’s salon shame I was in a rush and couldn’t try a bejazzle and the boutiques of TOWIE stars Lucy Mecklenburgh (Lucy’s Boutique) and Sam and Billie Friers (Minnies Boutique), we had to then shoot off to Chingford for filming at a salon. Anyway sure I’ll be back shortly and get a chance to checkout the boutiques and salons soon when we attend Essex Fashion Week.
Anyway thanks to 2 shoes, Money North the girls management, The Sugarhut and Dean Midas Maynard the girls agent. We had a fun few hours oh and I can’t believe you have a pink car to match with my pink iPhone Charley haha REEM!!
