Blog Every Day in May: Bank Holiday Fun

I love bank holiday weekends.  Turns out a three day weekend is a thing of genius!  Here it has been a weekend of catching up with friends, visiting pop up shops, haircuts, dinner, reading, cats and silliness.

a. Last night Matthew got home from his break.  It’s so lovely to have him home for a good long while now.  And the occasion certainly merited cake and prosecco!
b. Some beautiful work on display at the pop-up shop my Vixie is running.
c. Miss Paws has been in a really cute mood this weekend, which has been lovely to see.  She’d been having a bit of a shy, hide-y phase, so it’s lovely to see her more chilled again.
d. Friday was Mexican food at Wahaca with Eileen.  It was great to catch up on all her wedding chat!  I can’t believe that it’s less than a month till her and Rory’s big day.  Eeeeee!
e. Katzen awaiting Matthew’s return.
f. The view on my walk across to Eileen’s on Friday.  Love the city.
g. On Sunday Kaz and Hannah popped over for coffee….and left at eleven after wine, pizza, and chat.  Love an impromptu girls’ night!
h. I popped across town for a haircut Sunday lunchtime.  My stylist, Harry, is awesome and cracked me up with his ‘pre wedding hair attack plan’.  I know very little about hair, so am more than happy to play along.  Basically, we’re growing the life out of it, so next year, when it’s decision time and I have a dress etc we can choose any kind of style.
i. James and Phil at the pop up shop on Saturday.
j.  Vixie (and a very yummy cupcake, trust me) at her pop up shop. If you’re in East London you should definitely pop in – loads of cute stuff!
k. Amazing display of items by my talented friend Emily.
l. Balloons made by Vixie – I bought the love hearts one.  Love a cute brooch.
m. Speaking of cute brooches 🙂

All in all, a lovely weekend.

And a whole other day to enjoy now – house stuff, chilling with Matthew, and dinner with Dan and Brigitte.  Lord bless Bank Holiday weekends!

PS  If you love Emily and Vixie’s items, their etsy stores are here and here.  Vixie’s also on not on the high street. I bought most of my birthday gifts for the next few months at the pop up shop – way to combine, friends, shopping and getting it done, right? 🙂
