A big ol' catch up.

Sunday, 7 September 2014

So I took a bit of a blogging break, completely by accident... starting my new job and the move to London left me with even less spare time than I predicted! Hello to my new followers and thank you so much for coming to say hi - my Bloglovin' followers have shot up over the past few weeks. I promise I'll be blogging more regularly!

The last fortnight has been a total busy blur, but an amazing one at that. I absolutely love my new job, I couldn't have asked for a better team to work with and I actually look forward to Mondays! In the short space of time I've been here I've already gotten to work on campaigns for the likes of Disney and Universal Studios... I can't wait to see what the next few months have in store.

Last week I got to attend a press screening at the Ham Yard hotel in Soho, which was easily one of the most gorgeous hotels I've ever visited. Myself and the other intern, Charlotte, were handed free glasses of wine to sip on at the bar before we went in and the whole experience was quite surreal considering only a week before, in my old job, I'd been sat at a desk in a tiny office out in the middle of nowhere. I still can't believe I get to do stuff like this as part of the job!

Plus, any office which has its own bar is an absolute WINNER in my eyes.

This weekend just gone was the first chance my housemate and I have had to actually do some exploring. We decided to hop on the central line to East London and did a bit of wandering before stumbling across a street food market.
I opted for a Caboose burger called the 3.10 to Yuma, and my God this baby did not disappoint. Shredded beef which had been slow cooked over wood chips for twelve hours, gooey smoked cheddar, pickles, BBQ sauce, lettuce and the most divine blue cheese sauce I've ever tasted, all packed into one nicely toasted brioche bun. It was absolute HEAVEN.

We noticed a lot of people were carrying Vitamin Water bottles, so keen to investigate we wandered further down Brick Lane to find they were giving them out for free (between three of us, we may or may not have taken 16...) we were invited inside to find that as part of the campaign, they'd filled a small swimming pool with polystyrene pebbles. And you were allowed to swim in it.

(Look how unbelievably happy I am!) It was the weirdest thing I've experienced in a while but so much fun. I had the giggles the entire time I was in there because it just felt so bizarre. We were in the company of kids at least ten years younger than us but we were having just as much of a good time!

When we'd finally calmed down (and gotten rid of any stray polystyrene that had been stuck in our hair) we went for a quick drink before making our way back to the flat, quickly getting ready and heading on a night out in Ealing. But that's not a story for the blog...

Thanks again for following and reading- promise I'll have some more fashion/beauty based posts up soon! Does anyone have any recommendations of places to visit/explore/shop/eat in London? Preferably away from touristy hotspots! Working just off Oxford Street has meant I've become one of those Londoners!

Have a great week X

  2. Try some of the cocktail bars in Putney! Be At One or the Toyshop cocktail bar do amazing cocktails! Prices range from £6 upwards but the range of cocktails they have are amazing :) I am at University close by to Putney so am always trying to find a bargain place. Be At One have an app and with the app you can have a happy hour of BOGOF cocktails! :) x

  3. I'm currently in my final year at Uni and planning on moving to London when I graduate, so it'll be interesting to follow your London journey! Wow, that burger looks amazing, I love street food!
