Happy Monday everyone, but where did that come from? I swear I closed my eyes on Friday night and it’s already Monday, but having a bank holiday to look forward to this weekend is really exciting. I’ve had a bit of a whirlwind week both workwise and personal-wise, but there are always things that make me smile so here is everything that I was loving last week!
I was back in London this week for work, which was really exciting in itself as I got to be briefed on some amazing projects coming up. My parents were in London too, so when I finished work, I walked down to Exmouth market to meet my mum for a drink which is about 10 minutes away from my office, and from there we went for dinner with my Dad at Charlotte Street Hotel, which was delicious. I really do love London and discovering new areas every time I go.
This week my collaboration with Move GB started, which meant that I was free to try some classes that I usually wouldn’t get the chance to. I tried out Boxfit on Friday evening and Yoga on Saturday and although both were completely out of my comfort zone, they were so fun and I’m glad I went to them.
My friends from work and I booked tickets to see Britney back in January and this Saturday it was finally time. It was her Vegas ‘Piece of Me’ tour and it was incredible. I’ve loved Britney all through my life, and we were all able to reminisce about the good times to her classic songs. Pitbull supported too and reignited my love of his music.
As we’re getting married in a chapel, one of the prerequisites is that we have to attend 10 services before our wedding day and this Sunday we went to our second service. It was really lovely to meet the lady who will be performing it on the day and she gave us some ideas of what we can do decor-wise that we hadn’t thought about. I can’t believe how fast the wedding is coming round, but I’m getting excited!
On the theme of weddings, this weekend I started to have a look at dresses online with my maid of honour and bridesmaid. I’m not 100% sure how it’s going to work getting them and altering them as my MOH lives in Australia at the moment, but it was exciting to see whats out there and what styles are available.
I had a bit of time to kill on Sunday so I decided to go to Aldi to pick up a few bits for the week. The one near us is always super busy, but I decided to brave it on a Sunday as I really wanted to try some of their special buy range, and ended up coming out with a quiche, vegetarian pies, hummus and a lot of other random stuff, but our fridge has never looked so full!
Jordan and I are huge fans of Lebanese food and decided to treat ourselves to our favourite restaurant, Yara on Sunday evening as it felt like we hadn’t been out together for a while. We shared some mezze starters and the food was amazing, as always. That type of cuisine is inspiring our wedding menu too!
This week I’ve had a couple of really exciting emails land in my inbox and I can’t wait to share the results with you in the next coming weeks. It’s been a bit of a struggle the last couple of weeks getting blog posts together and scheduled, but I’m hoping to have more time to focus on the future soon and the exciting things I have planned for Eleanor Graceful – watch this space!
