Week by Numbers: bruises, birthdays and Breakfast at Tiffanys

My knees are black and blue, I'm exhausted, I'm starved and I'm armed (sorry, Miss.Congeniality references are hard to shake off) and I couldn't be happier.

7 favourites...
1.) Can we just press pause on time for a bit please...how is it June already?! Before the hayfever and sun-drenched pints get the better of me, here's what my May looked like.

2.) This past week, there was the Now Summer Party - Smart Girls Fake It, which was to promote staying safe in out in the sun. It was the first event I was involved in with everyone in my office and it was hectic, unreal and ridiculously fun. I got to have fun with my colleges and work friends outside of the office and get to know them better, have drinks on the house, and even embarrassed myself in front of my 1st ever crush, Mr.Ben Adams off of boyband A1 back in the day. An all round success I'd say.

3.) I never thought I'd see the day when my life was too busy for Netflix, but it has been, but I had an evening free for once and was looking for something new to get engulfed in, and after writing off The Bitch in Apartment 23 completely before ever having seen it, I gave in and absolutely loved it. It's witty and the characters are so well written, and I love that Mr.Dawson's Creek himself can take the piss out of himself. I whizzed straight through them, and before you know it, series 3 of Orange is the New Black had landed. Goodbye social life...

4.) Last weekend was an absolute dream. I spent the day eating ice-cream in the park and drinking beer in the sun, before having my childhood best friend and my best friend from uni unite and going for a gin-fuelled and 90s music hazed night out. I was so happy to dance along to Arctic Monkeys and The Contours with my 2 favourite gals, that I feel over from enthusiasm. The bruise was so worth it.

5.) This weekend that's just gone was a completely different story though, as it was my nephew and niece's joint birthday party with the family. And my god was it a struggle to get there. After missed trains, delayed trains and nearly crying in the middle of Euston station with a mountain of toys and presents in my arms, I got there. It was 3 hour round trip, just to be there for 3 hours, but it was so worth it and I wouldn't have had it any other way - that's how much of a family gal I am y'all. My brothers went out of their way to come home and see my when I was younger, and I that's exactly how I feel about my niece and nephews. 

6.) And the reason why I had to dash off so quickly? I had a date with Audrey Hepburn that evening. My ever-so-chic pal, Rosie, and I had tickets to Breakfast at Tiffanys live at the Royal Albert Hall. While one of my fave films was playing, the Philharmonia orchestra played the music, and we drank G&Ts on World Gin Day. It was bliss. I even cried cus I'm a soppy, romantic sap. It was honestly so dreamy. 
"People do fall in love, people do belong to each other, because that's the only chance anybody's got for real happiness."

7.) I've received my first ever legit payday, as a proper journalist nonetheless! AND,  boys and girls, I've found a new house to move into! After staying rent-free, at my family's place in the dreamy place of zone 1 Angel, I've finally found somewhere more permanent - although, the amount of time I've been living here has been pretty permanent already - and I'm heading down to South London! A good place and people was all that was on my checklist for a new room, and this place has all that, plus a cardboard cut-out of Taylor Swift. What else does a girl need eh?!

3 thoughts...
"So, I used to have your poster up on my wall. And now. You're here.... WHATTTT."
"I don't want to ask how old you are, but I also don't want to have kissed a youth..."
"What - me? You're really happy with ME being at the company? Well schucks..."

1 outfit...
playsuit:Missguided, shoes:Missguided, necklaces:Topshop, belt:ASOS
As a gal who's fond of a pastel colour or 2, a playsuit that looks like a kaleidoscope made out of a Wes Anderson colour palette is a basically all I could want. Oh wait, no, it's not because when there's kimono sleeves and a lace-trimmed plunging neckline involved as well, they're things that I never even thought I wanted out of a playsuit, but now I don't know how I could have dismissed such things. And to top it off, pastel pink shoes that are tied up with tassels - couldn't have asked for a better dancing partner on a Saturday night!

Stay happy!
Until next time...
