I had one of the busiest weekends of my life this weekend, and it went by with a flash. I can’t believe I’m at Monday already. A busy weekend in the heat, has also meant I am absolutely exhausted and so ready to hit the hay, just as soon as I’ve written this blog post…
Although it was jam packed, I had to take advantage of the gorgeous weather and take some photos, what do you think of this white off the shoulder ASOS dress? I’m completely in love with it, and I think it’s perfect for British spring days with its long sleeves and slightly chunkier material. I don’t know about you but I am loving the off the shoulder trend this season, although I do find it very hard to not keep pulling it up to my neck. I’m never going to be the best at fashion!
This weekend kicked off with a work night out on our building’s newly opened rooftop bar. Then on Saturday I celebrated my birthday with my friends. When I arrived at my boyfriend’s house, my best friends had decked it out in pink decorations – there were sequins, balloons, pink cocktail glasses, Pimms and even flamingo drink stirrers! Only boys live at my boyfriend’s house so it was quite a change to see it bathed in pink!
After cake, drinking Pimms in the garden, dancing, table tennis and games, we headed off to Kensington Roof Gardens. Although we never got to meet the flamingos who live there (I think we were a bit late for that in the end!), we still loved it. We danced to bongo drums, relaxed on deckchairs in the gardens at 2am, ate a cheeky BBQ snack and even snuck into the VIP area. It was the best night, surrounded by my favourite people.
Then Sunday came rather quickly, and was the hottest day of them all! We were too late for brunch so made our own (with the genius addition of hash browns!). And Sunday also involved iced frappacinos, lounging in the garden, binge watching TV and quickly realising it was 4pm and time for me to head to work. Although I’m not sure you would call it work in the traditional sense of the word – I was covering the BAFTAs! As you can imagine the red carpet was ridiculously hot, but I can’t really complain. I still feel so lucky to be doing the job I do, and watching Justin Timberlake take selfies with fans in front of me was a particular highlight.
And just like that it was Monday morning and I was posting on my blog one day late. Hope you all had lovely weekends too, what did you get up to?
