I haven’t been by the sea side in years. I miss the salty air and feeling sand against my skin. There is always something so relaxing in the sea air. Don’t these images just capture that casual beachy day. Next year I will reunite with the sun sand and sea. Until then I will just dream.
One of my guilty pleasures when going home for the weekend is catching up with the Kardashian’s. I think the Jenner’s and Kardashian’s are extremely entertaining even if it is slight car crash TV. It’s true you either love them or hate them, but you can’t deny they are all BEAUTIFUL. I really hope Kendall’s model career progresses and we get to see her bloom.
As the bank holiday comes to an end and we all set our alarms for tuesday *sigh* I have taken the time to look over my favourite things I did this summer. I am sure most of you have already seen on my Instagram feed but here is a quick over view of my summer fav’s.
At the beginning of the summer an old friend visited and we went for Afternoon Tea. It was a great way to catch up and indulge on some sweet favourites!
I love this picture, it was before going on a spontaneous night out. This summer has been about saying YES as much as possible. It’s time to stop worrying about the cost, about being hungover on Sunday and just enjoying good friends and new company.
Somerset house always has lots to enjoy during the summer. Thanks to my girls I got invites to see clean bandit and Annie hall at the open cinema. Both were such amazing evenings. To be the first to find out what events Somerset House have join their mailing list via their website!
Of course you are all aware of my excitement of getting to go Hong Kong on my first ever work trip. I might not have managed to go on holiday but I did get to go somewhere new and exciting. I might have been at work the whole time but it didn’t kill my buzz!
One of the most exciting news I had this summer was my PROMOTION! I’m still proud and in slight shock. Now I am an Assistant Designer!!
I visited the Royal Albert hall for the first time, I had a guided tour and watched a performance which was incredible. It’s great to find new things to do in the city. The great part was the performance was free!!
I attended my first mixology lesson, I wrote about it a few days back. Just another fun evening in the city!
I hope you all had an amazing Summer, did you do anything nice?!
This week I was lucky enough to experience a mixology class at The Folly in London. Mixology is just a technical word for making cocktails. This beat any Yoga class and was certainly up my street. Although it wasn’t really much of a “class” more or less a group of 10 girls laughing and throwing in extra shots into our mixer cups!
The guy that took our session was incredibly laid back and friendly. a group of 10 girls it can be difficult to hold our attention that he was patent and didn’t mind showing a demonstration 2/3 times!
I would definitely recommend a class like this for an ice breaker between new friends, a new way to pre-drink before a night out.
My cocktail was delish it had lime juice, raspberry pure and campari. We followed the lesson with dinner. Luckily our lesson was for free (Thanks Folly) you can book yours online for a reasonable cost. Have fun mixing!
I am so excited to share that I am going to New York in the Fall for Thanks Giving. Four years ago I spent 4 and half months in the big city and have missed it everyday since. Due to an amazing promotion I have treated myself to seeing old friends, eating tonns of crazy good American food, and experiencing for the very first Thanks Giving dinner with a very close friend’s family in PA.
I’m saving hard which means eating soup more often than not and putting off getting my winter clothes for as long as possible. Obviously I will need my winter essentials before going to the city. I have been starting a wish list already! I will share in due course.
Have any of you got any super ideas of what I should put onto my list of to do things? I’ve done a lot of the typical touristy things before but I would LOVE to hear any suggestions that you may have!
I’m hoping to avoid the snow this time! Time has really gone so fast, I can’t wait to be sitting on the airplane on my newest adventure! The countdown starts here…..
With summer almost ending lets make the most of all the mini hem garments we have. Get those tanned pins out as it won’t be long until they’re covered in denim and cotton tights. I need to get my hands on this metallic snake effect skirt.
Tuesday was a pretty great day it was my mummy’s birthday (happy birthday Mum) It was the day that Jenna got us free tickets to see Annie Hall at the open cinema at Somerset house. It was also the day I got a PROMOTION!!!!!!!!! I was so surprised and ecstatic that I have reached the next stage in my career. 2014 is certainly looking up.
Although the weather wasn’t great (we got caught in a thunderstorm 20 mins before the movie started) a rainbow arched over the film screen and it stayed dry throughout the movie. We saw Annie Hall, a Woody Allen romantic comedy. It was quirky and silly, a perfect movie to watch outside under the stars.
Tuesday seemed to be my lucky day. I went to get a pizza and dough balls and Pizza Express didn’t charge us!!! It looked like it happened to a few people also getting takeaway, can’t help but love a freebie!
Our guest bands for the VIP area at the movie, we got film4 blankets to help comfort us during the movie and such a great seat to view the movie. it was great that it wasn’t too cramped either.
