The week that saw a brand new Princess has been pretty good, topped off by a bloody lush bank holiday. Here's what we've been up to...
I bloody love to be by the seaside and there was nothing more effective than a trip to Brighton to blow away my hangover on Saturday (more on that later). Me and the boyf walked the length of the seafront, wandered around the lanes, played on the pier and ate some awesome food at Smokey's and it was smashing.
Watching Laura Marling...
Laura Marling is my ultimate girl crush and she did not disappoint when she played this week. On Thursday, following a Chilangos and a drink on the Southbank, we went to see her at Queen Elizabeth Hall and it was all kinds of beaut.
I'm a massive fan of Zoe Karssen T Shirts. When The Outnet tweeted that they had a new selection with 50% off, I couldn't resist this bad boy.
Eat. Nourish. Glow. Such a cliche. Here's hoping it has the same effects on me as it did on Sam Smith ...preferably in time for my holiday!
Loving... bank holiday.
Obvs all bank holidays are awesome, but this one has been very fun. Some 'quiet' drinks with RW and friends on Friday resulted in a very sore head on Saturday but the trip to Brighton with the BF quickly sorted that out. Following that there were more pub times with friends, lots more eating, a spot of shopping and catching up on Netflix. Roll on another long weekend (well, for me anyways!) next weekend.
The London Marathon
Last Sunday I headed East to support some friends at the London Marathon. Fi & Suzy were running in memory of our friend James who sadly died running the Reigate Half Marathon last year. It was so inspiring watching the girls and the other runners. Their fundraising endeavours have been amazing and they've raised over £15,000. Watching them almost makes me want to do another marathon, almost.
I made a sign for the girls. Spending the afternoon drawing James was very therapeutic and I know the girls appreciated the effort.
This week one of our ad campaigns at work went live for Sass Intimate Care. Seeing your work in the flesh is always exciting. We definitely celebrated our hard work with lots of bubbles. Well deserved.
My gammy foot
Nursing a metatarsal fracture I have found it difficult to exercise this week. It has taken me months to get back my love of running, so I’m frustrated that I’m bound to my orthopaedic shoe. I’ve also worn flats for over a week now, my daily chirpiness has definitely been affected. I’m hoping my foot will be set free after my hospital appointment on Wednesday. Alas I fear it will be some time before I can wear heels again.
Bank Holiday bants
Who doesn't love a bank holiday. I was fortunate enough to spend most of it with friends or snoozing. Delightful.
A dip in the ocean
I found myself in Oceana, over the bank holiday weekend. I should call it Pryzm but it was Oceana back in our day. As much as I enjoyed the nostalgia, I did feel old. Ok, I’m not OLD but when you are surrounded by 18-20 something year olds who aren’t going to feel their hangovers half as much as you, it is easy to feel past it. Most of the girls were wearing trainers or flats, which was quite refreshing, especially for my gammy foot. My dancing was the same as it was ten years ago, awful.
