3. Celebrating Afternoon Tea Week on the river.

|What a gorgeous way to take your tea, am I right?|
I am getting really into my instagram at the moment. I set myself a target of 1,000 followers by Christmas and if I keep up the work I think I might make it. If you like pictures of London, travel, food and home, you can find me over there @cmclaire.
5. The Great British Beer Festival!
|A sunny day for a pint or several!|
6. Catching up with friends, and scheduling even more catch ups in the weeks to come!
The diary had a healthy amount of catch ups with some of my favourite folk in the next few weeks and I'm super excited about it!
7. Time away.
Tomorrow is our second anniversary (time flies), and we are celebrating with a couple of days up in Manchester. Life has been manic recently, so a little pampering and relaxation is very much in order! While we are there we'll be doing lots of planning for the big trip next month too - we are so excited to visit New York and Boston for the first time and to revisit Toronto and Las Vegas!
8. Ctrl + Alt + Delete
A few posts ago I shared a Q & A with Emma Packer, the writer and performer of Ctrl+Alt+Delete, currently running at the Camden People's Theatre. On Tuesday I went along to see the show and was so impressed - her performance was raw, energetic and whip-smart. If you're free tonight or tomorrow I'd encourage you to pop along - I'll be watching to see what Emma does next!
9. Cocktails and canapes at the Victory Mansion.
|Toasted sourdough topped with beef tomatoes and homemade harissa, and artichoke hearts with aoili? Yes please.|
|So many inventive and unusual cocktails.|
