Photos of the Week #29

WEEK 29 OF 52

Last week really kicked my arse. It was unbelievably busy, and I’m lying on the sofa in disbelief that it’s even over?! Two big work projects smashed together, fighting for my attention every day, and I felt like my fingers didn’t stop typing and my feet never stopped tapping. It was a writing-emails-with-a-sandwich-in-your-hand kind of week, and a standing-up-while-I-finish-sending-this-email-as-I’m-so-close-to-missing-this-train week. But a fun week! If that’s a thing.

To counter some of the stress, I’ve taken up yoga, and I love it! I have a two-week introductory membership at a local studio, and so far I’ve tried four classes, and really enjoyed them all. I think hot yoga has been my favourite (I’ve done one beginner class, two hot and one ‘medium’ hot class. Although last Sunday’s hot class was really more like BOILED ALIVE yoga), and I think I might look into the different membership packages that they offer. My only concern is that it’s giving me heat rash on my shoulders. Can hot yoga really do that? Well, I have heat rash on my shoulders (only where I got burnt last weekend though?!), and I’m just hoping it’s not from the hot yoga. I used to get it a lot when I was stressed, so maybe it’s stress rash? I don’t know.

Here’s what I got up to last week.

^^Tuesday was the Tech4Good Awards. I always look forward to the final Awards ceremony – seeing seven months work come together, and celebrating some pretty amazing people, I love it.^^

^^A pre-Awards breakfast, and one I’ve been having for the past few weeks – really need to get back into making smoothies – coconut yogurt, granola, dried fruit, nuts, seeds and ground chia seeds. Yum!^^

^^A post-Awards bon voyage burrito. A friend visiting from Japan was leaving the next day, so we celebrated with burritos and beers at a great pub in Brighton.^^

^^On Thursday I was back in London for the Moretti Gran Tour, photographing Cin Cin’s Italian master classes. It was so much fun! The atmosphere was amazing, everyone was just having such a good time, both throughout the master classes and chilling out amongst the street food vendors and entertainment. The Tour needs to come to Brighton!^^

^^To celebrate my sister’s graduation (SO PROUD!) Trout and I met my Mum and sister for lunch in Brighton. I picked Casa don Carlos, their food is pretty good and it’s a fun place to eat. Plus the location was great for us.^^

^^On Saturday morning, to celebrate the very much needed weekend, Trout made us avocado on toast. I love having something special at the weekend! I forget just how good this breakfast is, too. It’s basically guacamole on toasted bread, which is basically the best food ever.^^

LOVE. Being mindful and really trying to relax.//Enjoying precious evenings at home, reading and getting an early night.//Ticking things off my to-do list.//
LISTENING. Nothing new this week – a bit more Emiliana Torrini, a couple of tracks from Bjork (but I won’t link as I’ve no idea which ones they were!), The Flatliners, Mariachi El Bronx and Strike Anywhere.//
LINKS. Kind of really love these GOLD shoes.//Laura’s recipe for salted caramel chocolate mousse. It looks so good.//This photo set on No Fashion Victims.//
LAST WEEK. Stress.//Smiles.//Yoga.//Breath.//Re-watching episodes of The Thick of It.//
THIS WEEK. Hen partyyy!! It’s my BFFs wedding next month so we’re kidnapping her and spraying her with whipped cream and hiring all the strippers we can get our hands on.//Seeking out some new music to listen to. Any recommendations?//

    I’ve never tried the avocado on toast thing but it always sounds really good.

      You have to try it! You’ll fall in love, I’m sure. Make sure you use nice quality bread (instead of Hovis or something). (Although that will still taste good).

    I have to agree avocado on toast is the bomb!
