Happy Monday everyone and welcome back to this week’s Weekly Love post! I hope you had a lovely weekend doing whatever made you smile and are ready for a new week.
It seems as though the great British summer is coming to an end, but hopefully, the rain is just for a week or so and it’ll be blazing hot again before we know it!
Here is everything I was loving last week.
Jordan and I came back from Cologne on Monday, which was such a fun little trip. We had the morning there so went in the pool for the last time, and had breakfast on the hotel roof terrace – can every Monday be like this please?
I had my last set of gels on for far too long and my nails had started to split underneath, so I knew it was about time for a new set! I went for a pale pink (very millennial of me) and I love how pretty and girly it is – it’s been a while since I had pink, but now the weather is starting to turn, I thought I best get something summery for maybe the last time *sob*.
On Tuesday evening, I had the pleasure of shooting in Didsbury with the amazing Adel who I met on Instagram. She was so lovely and had some amazing props with her, which meant that we managed to shoot very bridal inspired photographs without even realising. I’ll be sharing some on my Instagram in the next few days so make sure you’re following me here!
This week I’ve been working in my home office, which has been a bit of a dumping ground, so on Friday evening, I decided to get everything out of it and paint it. It took about 3 hours, but it’s now a really lovely shade of pale pink (and looks slightly like a nursery) and I can’t wait to sort it out fully.
I’ve been reading Dolly Alderton’s ‘Everything I know about love’ and this week I’ve been unable to put it down. I’m quite near the end now, and I can see why loads of girls my age have really enjoyed reading it – I would highly recommend.
Jordan and I were very kindly invited to afternoon tea at the new Sunset Terrace at Australasia. The terrace has recently been refurbished and is absolutely stunning. We had the sushi bento box, to begin with, and then had a sample of different cakes for afterwards. I’ve only been to Australasia once for food and it was amazing, and this afternoon tea experience didn’t disappoint either.
My Nan stayed with us on Saturday night and we had a cosy night in whilst it rained outside. We watched dinner date, blind date and a program with Gino Di Campo, and it was so fun to stay in with her and have a chilled evening with lasagne and lots of tea and biscuits.
My mum joined us on Sunday for Sunday lunch where we had fish, potatoes and a lot of cake for dessert. It was really lovely to have a weekend filled with family time and not having to go out anywhere, and it made my heart full.
