Happy Monday everyone! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend and are ready for the new week ahead. I had a really interesting week last week, as it was the start of my new job and working from home, which is something I’ve wanted to do for a while.
Although it’s not been as warm this week, I’ve been trying to make the most of the sunshine and getting out on walks in the morning and at lunchtime – plus only having cats as colleagues makes you feel the need to leave every so often!
Here’s everything I was loving last week.
As I mentioned, I started a new job on Monday which I’m sure you’ll hear me talk about on social media and on here at some point. It’s very similar to what I was doing in my old role, but the company is much more suited to my beliefs and I’m really excited to be working on some big projects already – watch this space!
As I started a new job on Monday, I spent the next couple of days in London for introductions and some training. It was really lovely to get to know my wider team and put some faces to names (or email addresses at least…) I’ll be down in London every couple of weeks for big meetings, which I’m looking forward to as I love the big smoke!
When I was down in London, I met up with my friend Erin, who lives down there. We had a really lovely wander and drinks on one of the rooftop bars in Covent Garden, and then walked around Seven Dials, before heading for dinner at Wildwood and a walk to the Thames for the sunset. We also walked down the South Bank which has changed so much since the last time I was there about a year ago.
After spending so much time in the week at home, I found a few cosmetic things that I wanted to change with the house, so Jordan and I went to Ikea on Friday evening to pick up a few bits. I’m going to start sharing more home bits on my blog and Instagram so make sure you keep an eye out for those!
I was really lucky to be invited to have my cut and colour done at Reilly Denholm in Leigh. It’s been so long since I’ve had anything professional done to my hair, and I decided to refresh the colour with a bit of balayage and also had about 4 inches off it too! It was all done by Rachel, who was amazing and so patient with the whole process.
After having my hair done, I went to Bluedot Festival at Jodrell Bank, which is a festival I’ve wanted to go for a couple of years. The location was amazing, and the festival itself wasn’t like anything I’ve even been to before. I’ll be writing a whole post on it soon.
On Sunday morning, I went for brunch (the best meal of the whole week) at Gusto in Knutsford with a group of bloggers. My friend Missy was there with her boyfriend Chris, but I hadn’t met any of the others before and it was a great group of people. I went for the Nutella pancake and it was divine!
It was also my cousin’s 8th birthday (and my uncle’s today) on Sunday so we headed to their house after brunch for a party. The sun came out just as we arrived and we got to meet their new Cavapoo puppy, Teddy, who was the sweetest thing ever and was very close to coming home with us! Sundays are definitely my favourite day for seeing family and chilling with everyone in the garden.
Whilst I was at my uncle and aunties, I asked my twin cousins to be my flower girl and pageboy at the wedding next year. They both seemed really excited, and I think they are going to look adorable!
This week we finally unboxed our Leesa mattress which has been taking refuge in the downstairs toilet for a few days now. We’ve only slept one night on it, but it is one of the comfiest mattresses I’ve ever slept up, and I’m already looking forward to going to bed tonight – I’ll be doing a full review with a discount code on it too!
What have you been loving this week?
