Hello! It’s been another crazy week for me with late nights and early mornings… here’s my round-up of this week’s 5 nicest things.
- From Vine to Jar – My garden doesn’t get much of my attention apart from on sunny days, when I can enjoy lunch al fresco (like today!). It has however (through no assistance from me) for the 2nd year in a row provided me with a lovely crop of red grapes which I’ve just harvested. Now, I’m also not very adventurous in the kitchen, so what does one do with so many grapes? Well fortunately my eldest brother did inherit my mother’s passion for cooking and he has come to the rescue, taking the grapes off me to make jam. Thank you Tom!
- Birthday Celebrations – This week has seen a number of birthday celebrations for my school friend and Richmond buddy, Tiffany. We had an impromptu visit to Westfield on Tuesday night for some shopping and Wagamamas, plus a lovely dinner with her family on her birthday at Richmond’s The Duke. Happy birthday Tiff.
- Wining and Dining – It has been a week of eating out in abundance (my bank balance and body are both feeling it!). On Thursday, I had supper with two uni friends – Becca and Jules (who was back for a couple of days from Istanbul). We ate at Tom’s Kitchen in Chelsea and had a lovely catch up over fish pie. We did half expect to bump into some of the cast of Made in Chelsea, who regularly frequent the establishment. 😉
- Award-winning – It’s the awards season for the Event industry and this week saw Event Magazine’s Awards at Camden’s Roundhouse. Our agency was up for three awards for fantastic work for clients such as Guinness, Lucozade and Nissan. And we won two out of the three! It was a really fun night with a great bunch of work colleagues. I wore a sparkly number from French Connection A/W12, and my trusty black patent Louboutins.
- Cinema Night – After a hectic week, cinema on Saturday night sounded the perfect antidote. Tiff, Lize and I went to sample the Odeon Lounge in Bayswater. We watched Prisoners which was excellent. I thoroughly recommend it. The Lounge however was a little disappointing. It’s pretty expensive at £22.50 for a seat (that does recline), and the concept of eating a main meal in the cinema sounded great but in practice was actually a bit distracting. It’s worth doing once but I won’t be going back for a second visit.
Right, I’m off to yoga and I’ll be watching Homeland later…
Have an awesome week everyone!
