This Week I’ve Been… #68


Words. Words are what I should be sharing with you at this moment in time however all I can manage to adequately verbalise is ‘belluhggggh’. Without going into too much detail (aka a small violin required story) my former busy work schedule has managed to triple, wish I was kidding. It’s all part of the industry and the joys of a delivery but I just wanted to give you guys a heads up. I’ve never been at the forefront of ‘trends’ or social media due to my full time hours however things may go a tad quieter than normal. I’m hoping this won’t impact my daily post schedule as it’s the thing keeping me sane! I just hope you understand why I might be a little less ‘everywhere’ for the next couple of months. Maybe I can treat myself with a stupid expensive luxury makeup item once it’s all done ;)

This Week I’ve Been…

Braiding the tresses – with festival season right around the corner and the sunshine starting to heat up the capital, it’s all about fringed tops, denim shots and braids. If you want to create a cute hairstyle without all the faff this new InstaTwist tool from Scunci UK will give you festival ready hair in half the time!

Going to exhibitions – last Saturday I went to the Alexander McQueen exhibition over at the V&A. Wow. It was one of the most breathtaking exhibitions I’ve ever been too and I was left in awe of the rooms upon rooms of gorgeous outfits talking through the history of the iconic designer

Indulging in more brunches – bottomless brunches are become quite the traditional round here and you won’t find me complaining one bit! When I do make it out of the office there is nothing better then having a sea of fizzing bubbles around you. Perfection!

Praising the filter magic – you know when a filter just works all kinds of crazy magic? It’s like an experience photoshoper took over your picture and transformed that dull, tired and sleepless face into something that resembles a human person. Don’t get me wrong, imperfections are beautiful too but sometimes it’s nice to rock a filter on those odd occasions :)

    It would be great if you could show us some pics of the Alexander McQueen Exhibition. Sounds like you’ve had a great time!

    Best wishes,

    • Sadly you weren’t allowed to take any pictures in there! It was fantastic and really breath taking – so many rooms that were fully immersive and showcase so many beautiful designs xx

        That’s a shame – I would love to have seen some. At least we have your word for it! That sounds amazing :D

        Best wishes,

    I’ve started doing these kind of posts as I love them! I’m the same in terms of my blog – things go quiet when I’m busy! xx

    Love the Insta Twist! :) It looks so cool! I saw someone trying it out on Periscope and told myself I needed to buy one. Haha
