This post would have been up yesterday if it weren’t for my spectacular laziness.
Hello, beauties! How is everyone?
It’s been a while since my last post. Hope you haven’t missed me too much. I can’t lie – I have missed blogging a little bit, but with work and other social endeavours I am always so tired when I get home that the only thing I can do is read or watch a film. Just about. I haven’t caught up on all of my TV shows in a week – *shock horror* – and I am now reading 4 books at the same time. As you do.
This week was a long one for me. The past weekend was the first one I had off in the past 2 weeks, because my fast self decided to do overtime. To be fair, I definitely need to considering the amount of holidays I now have booked.
Discovered this extremely cool bar in Clapham Junction called Rise46 thanks to my friend who held her birthday there. It has a 1920s theme and they do live music until 10pm on Friday and then there’s a DJ afterward. I was not prepared when ‘Work’ came on. At all.
I didn’t get home until 3am, and it’s a wonder I made it in on time the Saturday for 10am. I was extremely hanging. It was not a pretty sight. Thankfully, I only worked until 2pm, but my mum forced me to go food shopping with her afterward. I made her buy me a burrito from the Filishack in Peckham Sq as a reward for even being able to drag my body back out again.

It was soooo good. Their grilled chicken inasal style and the use of spicy sauce had me finishing off my sister’s half as well. After she let me because she couldn’t finish it, of course. I didn’t just take it from her – I’m not that mean.
I also discovered some gems sitting in an old photo album in my grandma’s house. I am 2 kewt 4 yew.
In other news, we had a desk decorating competition at work with the theme of Alice in Wonderland. If you follow me on Twitter then you would have seen my utter excitement at this. Alice in Wonderland happens to be one of my favourite books and my tattoo is a quote from it, “We’re all mad here” with the Cheshire Cat’s grin.
My friend and I took a little trip to IKEA, which is heaven on Earth, to get supplies but the only thing I ended up getting was a lantern for myself and some tea lights and literally one thing on my list ?IKEA is literal house goals. I could happily spend my whole day in there. If I had the money, I would deck my whole room out with IKEA furniture and accessories. Anyway, Despite office politics, we managed to pull off a really good display. We even had a little tea party going on *and* I dressed up as the White Rabbit. AND WE WON.
It was a lot of fun and I am super chuffed that we won because we did put a lot of effort into it. Love a bit of Alice.
Finally, yes finally, I had my first weekend off in 2 weeks and it was the most glorious weekend ever. I went out for Chinese on the Friday evening and then went to the cinema to see Grimsby. The most disgusting, vile, gross film I have watched this year. Yet it has Sacha Baron Cohen written all over it and I couldn’t help but laugh, so much. That Billy Cosby joke got me. Like wow.
The next day, I went galavanting around Greenwich and managed to buy 3 books in the space of about 10 minutes. Do not let me loose in a charity shop for too long because I will literally spend all of my money. I’ve already started ready ‘Diary of a Manhattan Call Girl’ and it is absolute filth. Love it already.
I also had my first ramen burger, which was so good and so tasty and so oh my goodness. I’m always eating, I swear.
We also celebrated Mother’s Day in the UK on March 6th and that was a fun affair. Love posting old pictures of my mum and I – I apparently still the same face in one particular picture of us, haha. Ooooh, I also had my first personal trainer session alongside Mutay on Sunday. MY BODY IS KILLING ME. We went into the weight section for the first time in our lives and at first you’re like, oh this is nothing. Then the next day, you feel it. I mean feel it. It’s crazy. It was fun, though, and I’m looking forward to our next session 🙂
PS. LEO WON A FREAKING OSCAR. FINALLY.
