So here we are again. Sunday, Sunday, Sunday, you creep up on me like a champion ‘what’s the time Mr wolf’ player. Yet I feel as if I haven’t really achieved much this week.
This has certainly been the week of work and blogging. I’ve been feeling so inspired, with loads of ideas buzzing around my head , that I almost feel as if there’s not enough days to fit it all in. I’ve also been hugely overwhelmed by the support I’ve been getting. I know I’ve said this previously, but it was so daunting putting myself out there. Not to get into a thing , but I’m actually quite shy, especially when it comes to expressing my thoughts and feelings.So I’d just like to quickly say a huge, massive thanks to everyone who’s taken the time to read this and put up with me waffling on and on.
In the spare few hours I’ve had where I haven’t had to work on this blog or my day job, I have turned to the tv. We started watching ‘The Returned’ and although we’re only a few episodes in, we are both already hooked. I know in my last Sunday Summary I said I loved the American version called ‘Resurrection’ I have to sadly eat my words, as the French have done it far far better. It’s much darker and way more sinister than its American counterpart and that in large part is why we both prefer it. It is subtitled and that may put some off but don’t let it, because to be honest it’s pretty darn awesome.
This week my baby brother and his girlfriend have come to stay, which is always lovely. Although it was a whirlwind of a visit its always a joy seeing them both and catching up. Laura my brothers girlfriend, bought me some new beauty goodies, that I can not wait to try.
Speaking of beauty, my big shout out for the week needs to go to Tanya Burr and her absolutely, friggin amazing lip glosses. I have 4 or maybe 5 of these beautys and they never EVER fail to impress me. I don’t want to speak about them too much as a future post is most definitely on its way but I would like to say that they are most probably what is on my lips all the time.
If I have a Saturday morning where I’m not at work, Chris and I will usually try somewhere new for brunch. This weekend was no expection to the rule and we went and checked out a little cafe called ‘Hello Sunday’. It’s located on Elgin St near the Colombo st mall. I’m so pleased that we tried it out. Again we both opted for a chai latte and it was pretty up to standard. Chris had the hash stack, which must have been amazing as he didn’t even come up for air once it arrived. I went for the fried brioche with mascarpone, stewed apples and maple syrup (as pictured below). It was divine, but so filling I couldn’t finish it all. The staff were really friendly and service was pretty prompt. What I did love about other than the great food was the decor. They’ve gone for a shabby chic kind of vibe, that I was very much feeling. Also the cabinet food looked incredible, especially the cakes. The only downside was that it’s pretty small inside, which would be fine if it wasn’t the middle of winter, as they have plenty of outdoor seating. I’d recommend either going really early to ensure you get a table or if you don’t mind sharing you can always pull up a pew with someone else.
I’ve also made a few pay day purchases this week (as pictured) all from Countdown. I’m super excited to give these a try over the week and see if they all live up to the hype and expectations. Talking of purchases I’ve also been into my local bolt of cloth again, along with spotlight and mitre 10, gathering bits and bobs for a current D.I.Y project. I’m really excited to get it completed and up here!
Sebastians weeks been pretty same old. Once again he’s mostly been snoozing, eating and attacking us, out of love we hope. Although he has been venturing outside a little more, we think he’s slowly becoming not so scared of the giant grey cat next door.
And finally our week ended last night with a trip to see my oldest and bestest friend Alyx compete in a pole competition. I’m so proud of her and all the hard work she put in. I had only been to one event like this in the past and again I was blown away with the skill and ability that the girls and 1 boy showed on the night. Chris was pretty excited too when I asked him to come along with me ( I think he thought it was going to be a different kind of show). My hightlight of the evening had to be, when one of the competitors took her jacket off and tossed it into the crowd landing in Chris’ face, I really wish I’d filmed that it certainly was priceless. I also did Alyx’s hair and make up for the event and had Chris take pictures so a post on this will be up shortly.
To sum up the weeks events it’s not been all that eventful but it’s definitely had a few highlights here and there. As I write this I’m actually away for work. So I’m really sorry if it’s a little disjointed and muddled. Also our Sunday Selfie was a little bit rushed as it was literally taken just before I rushed out the door for work (the joys of doing shift work). So thanks for sticking with me if you’ve made it this far.
The week ahead again is pretty busy, I’ve got a few D.I.Y projects on the go and a few beauty posts that I can’t wait to get up. We’ve also got friends coming for dinner and my dad is here from the UK. Once again thanks so much for taking the time out of your busy days to read these little post, it honestly means so much!
Stay cool and keep reading,
