So I’ve been a bit MIA. The last time I managed to publish anything blog related was actually the 4th June. WTF!!
I could come out with a whole list of half baked excuses but to be honest with you I have just been focused on living more in the moment and ultimately having fun.
I work damn hard at work, since my promotion it has become borderline all consuming. In a good way though, I’m not complaining, I love everything about my job. I finally feel like I know who I am, and what I want to be doing with my life. Time off though is more precious than ever. Hence my blog has taken a bit of a back seat.
In an effort to try and pick up on the blog again I thought I would share a bit of what I’ve been up to over the past month. It really has been busy, but fortunately really fun.
Hen Party no 1
My sister in law is getting married in August. We had the first of the Hen parties at Bar Salsa in Charring Cross.
Getting in the salsa spirit we all dressed up in red outfits, apart from the bide who was in white of course! We had a salsa class, ate some really tasty South American food and drank too many cocktails.
Bar Salsa does some great party packages, I highly recommend it as a venue for when you want a great all inclusive experience.
My baby girl is no longer such a baby. I still can’t get my head around the fact she has left school and had her Prom.
I know I’m biased because I’m her mother but my daughter truly looked beautiful.
The dress was from Lipsy VIP. It fit her beautifully other than the fact we did have to have the length taken up. (She is so tiny!)
I did her hair and makeup for her. I’m actually really proud of this creation. A hairdresser I am not!
Hen Party No 2
It was time for round two of my Sister in Laws Hen Party. This time we headed to Cambridge for a spa stay and a go on the punts.
We stayed at the Hallmark Hotel. As hotels go it was comfortable and clean. I can’t say I was that sold on the food. Well that’s a lie, it was my pudding that had let it down. Who puts red cress on an Icecream sundae?
The Thalgo facial I had though was without a doubt the best facial I have experienced. I would visit again just for that! Maybe choose a different dessert?
Punting on the river Cam was great fun. I wish we had more time to explore Cambridge as the College Buildings are amazing. Everywhere you turn there is another little passage that needs discovering.
Pop Choirs ‘Magnificent’ at Electric Brixton
My big sister is part of Pop Choir. I’m not really sure where to begin explaining what this is. If you enjoy singing, just for the sheer joy of it then Pop Choir could be for you. I’ve left a link to the website so you can check it out of your interested.
Last week we went to watch Pop Choirs ‘Magnificent’ evening. It was such a fun evening and truly inspiring to see such a large group of people come together and ‘sing their hearts out’ to raise funds for some really great charities.
I’d love to join myself, sadly there isn’t a group in my local area yet.
Beer Festivals, Hawaiian themed birthday bashes and more!
So all this has been dotted amongst cinema trips, the Cammra Beer Festival, Christenings and not forgetting my Cousin 30th birthday. That one got a bit messy…
I don’t actually have any pictures to share of these as true to living in the moment I forgot to take any. Whoops!
