Weekend Snaps

Soz for the delay in blogging - been having a total BT-related internet nightmare in the new flat and it's been hellish. Still no official net for the foreseeable but we're managing to intermittently borrow someone else's WiFi so hopefully this blog will reach you...

Thanks for all of the lovely tweets and comments regarding my exciting news that I'm Company's new columnist. I actually wrote my first column today after much deliberation on the subject matter... Hopefully you'll like it! It'll be just like this blog but a bit more 3D. Look out for the May issue (out around April 10th I think)! 

Have had SUCH a lovely chilled weekend with Alex. I've been a good girl and gone to the gym twice but have also contradicted that by eating the most absurd amount of food. Swings and roundabouts, right..?!

Here's what we've been up to in pics: 

Yesterday was amazeballs - we walked along the canal from Islington all the way to London Zoo!  (Making a pitstop for some shopping and tourist-hating at Camden...)

I'm like, obsessed with houseboats.

 You could see Warthogs, Hyenas and birds from the canal! I was so tempted to jump the fence for a free wander around the zoo but good sense prevailed.

 Vintage shopping. Unsuccessful, sadly.

 These boots were made for walkin'. Just as well because we did some srs mileage yesterday!

In the evening we took an exciting trip to the hardware shop to get special plug thingys to put heavy frames on the wall and finally completed our lounge with a frame of Warhol pics and the piece de resistance - a big Amelie poster which shows the restaurant Amelie worked in which we visit each time we're in Paris!  I'll blog more pics of our flat when it's next tidy...
(All furniture Ikea, throw - Primark, Roxy's bed - Amazon (this exact style is sold out but available on eBay)

Dinner was a feast of burgers, chips and onion rings... SO healthy! There's tomatoes in ketchup at least...

Today we got the 73 bus to Marble Arch to try and spend an a Selfridges voucher I got at a press day. It was a bit too overwhelming so I failed at spending it. I was tempted to spend it on some of this adorable Artbox stationery though!

For lunch I took Alex to Bodeans for his first Man Vs Food style lunch experience! We ordered a mahoosive meat platter which was hella unphotogenic, so here's some sauce:

Walked past this glasses shop in Covent Garden which had no obvious name - NEED those dolphin specs!!

Then we went to Blackwells so Alex could continue to feed the book addiction that is putting our bookshelves and indeed relationship under strain! Okay maybe the latter was an exaggeration. But that boy has booky issues.

And that's about it! A lovely weekend of mooching and good food that feels like it has gone on forever. Perfect! 

Have you had a fun weekend? xo

  11. Aww, that houseboat is gorgeous!
    When I went for an interview at the Canal Cafe Theatre in London I found a load of houseboats sitting along that part of the Thames. I think a walk along there will be in order ;)they are so so beautiful!

    It sounds like you had a cracking weekend. BRING ON SUMMER.
