My Week In Photos #3

[1] I saw this cup at Selfridges and instantly had to buy it. I love the simplicity of it and I've always been a great fan of the board game Scrabble. [2] Hunting down a leather jacket for my BF at Spitafield's All Saints. [3] Saw this really cool iPhone photography book in Urban Outfitter. It had some great photos and apps for photography. [4] It has been really cloudy and rainy in London for the past week. I love the texture and patterns of clouds that form after a heavy rain storm. [5] I've had a very strong craving for sushi this week. My salmon Nigiri lunch box from Wasabi. [6] Had a gorgeous meal at Heston Blumenthal's Dinner By Heston Blumenthal at The Mandarin Oriental Hotel. It was the most gorgeous food and amazing presentation - read blog post here. [7] I've been back to making origami stars this week. [8] Browsing around Spitafield Market on my day off. They have a variety of clothing stores, market stores and cool vintage shops.


A change from my previous two posts, I have edited most of these photos as I was playing around with Photoshop. I don't usually manipulate my images, but I had an urge to for this post. Hope you like the photos! I'm super excited to have reached my 100th follower :). Thank you! Will do a blog post soon. Today, I woke up super early considering I went to bed pretty late last night - I was so engrossed in True Blood Season 4 (I love Eric!) that I didn't realise how late it was.  All I have been doing is chilling in my pyjamas and watching TV. I haven't had a day like this for a while now. It feel as though I've constantly been on-the-go, with no rest at all. My body feels so weak and so drained. I vowed to use this weekend to hibernate! So much so, I made a conscience decision to miss a friend's birthday party on Saturday (*cue sad violin music*). I don't think I would have coped well with all the dancing and alcohol.. it would probably have knocked me out cold :(. A well needed rest is all I can think of right now. Sleep is my number 1 priority and nothing else. Saying that, I'm actually off to see the doctors in a bit.. fingers crossed its nothing serious.  Hope you lovely peeps have a fantastic week!
