The Week in Photos

(L-R, 1-9)

So here's what I've been up to this week according to Instagram.

1. Mumma bear and I painted out nails in matching proper paint box red :) Looks so classy..until it chips.

2. I picked up my new specs and despite some reservations when I chose them the week before, I absolutely love them! Can;t believe how much of a difference it made getting the clearer/cosmetic lenses put in instead too. I got prescription aviator sunnies as my free pair, so I will finally be able to see when I'm driving and it's sunny, rather than just squinting. Hurrah.

3. This was the view from my office window on a grey London day last week. Thankfully we've had a bit of sunshine since then. I am in need of a dose of Vitamin D!

4. I've been trying to take my lunch into work every day but it doesn't always work out that way. This my favourite Pret combo though.

5. This little pile of make-up graced my face one day last week after I had a nightmare of an evening and realised I'd left my glasses in my office at work. But obviously didn't realise until I'd taken the train out of London and got back to my car. I can't drive without them so couldn't get myself home and was kind of stranded at a friend's. I stayed with my boyfriend but had nothing at all with me so my friend lent me a few bits to make myself slightly more presentable for work the next day. It was actually kind of liberating not having all my usual stuff with me. Although i won't make a habit of it! Lesson for the future = keep a spare pair of glasses in my car.

6. It was my mum's birthday last week, and hopefully she had a lovely day :) I cooked in the evening and then did the obligatory cake, candles and singing affair. We didn't want a big cake that wasn't going to get eaten though, so I bought this little chocolate brownie bake instead. Yum.

7. Polished this book off on my commutes last week. I love Tess Gerritsen but this was not her best.

8. Saturday I spent a lovely day wandering around Oxford St and Regent St with friends. Although I felt like I was doing my commute when we were on the train, it was actually nice spending some time in London for non-work purposes and perusing the shops which I normally avoid like the plague. We started at Joe and the Juice (good juice!) and ended with late lunch/early dinner at Jack & Rye in Soho. Have the buttermilk fried chicken. It's amazing.

9. And then on Saturday evening I made it back to my home town to spend some time with my boyfriend. Take away food and weekend tv. Perfect. You also get a glimpse of my new bright pink jumper I got in the H&M sale the week before. I'm not really a 'pink' person, but if I wear it then it has to be bright, and I love this.
