Life Lately || Happy Things

Hello dear readers! Happy Friday everyone! I’m sure my UK readers are excited to have yet another long weekend. Hurray for May Bank Holidays. Another reason why May is the best month!

You might have noticed (if you follow me on twitter) that last week I tweeted once a day with the tag #SHhealthyminds. The team at JoeBlogs and Simplyhealth wanted bloggers to help raise awareness during Mental Health Awareness Week (last week). In exchange, money would be donated to the mental health charity, Mind. I can’t sing Mind’s praises enough.  

The reason why I started doing these life lately updates was to focus on the positive, which was entirely in the spirit of last week. In the spirit of positive thinking Simplyhealth have put together a 5 Step Guide to encourage you to do so.

This weekend Sam and I are heading up to a wedding in the Lake District and I’ve wanted to see that part of England for a really long time.

My birthday is exactly a week from today, so you can bet that I’m super excited. Due to extenuating circumstances (me being foreign, theatre schedules, show runs, etc) Sam and I have never actually celebrated my birthday together ON my birthday so I’m super happy that this year is the year to make that happen.

Last week I saw Delta Rae perform at the Camden Barfly with my friend Emily. They were absolutely fabulous. Their harmonies are just chilling sometimes. They did this amazing thing where they came off the stage and gathered in the middle of the crowd and performed acoustically amongst everyone. I (selfishly) almost don’t want them to get more popular so that they can keep doing that. 

I attended the Jones Bootmaker AW Press Preview and it made me want all things. But seriously, for 9 out of 12 months of the year I live in my boots so it was perfect for me. They are carrying a lot of super gorgeous burgundy leathers this fall which are to die for. Just check out the gorgeous boots below!

On Sunday evening, I went and saw my friend Rob’s comedy show at the Leicester Square Theatre. You can check out any of this other tour dates here. He’s hilarious and I’m not at all biased. 

Earlier last weekend, we had saw a family member we hadn’t seen in ages, who was down in London from Yorkshire for the day. The weather was beautiful that day, so we were able to sit outside at our local pub and get some sun.

I attended the Champagne Jacquart Rose Cube launch at the Clerkenwell Design Week on Tuesday evening. It was a stunning location, and a fabulous beverage. I can easily say that this is one of the first rosés that I’ve truly enjoyed, but I’ll write more on it later. Plus Jess was there and it was great to have some time to catch up. 

I also attended the House of Fraser AW preview yesterday. There was so much variation in textile and fabric, that I was both excited and overwhelmed all at the same time. It made me want to touch everything! Fortunately, for HoF, I kept my grubby mitts off of most of their goods. Who wants to buy me that gorgeous beige and grey striped coat in the picture below?

What are your weekend plans?
