Hey guys, happy Sunday, I can’t get over how quickly this year is going! Yet again another week has gone by so quickly and here I am once again writing my Weekly Roundup. This week sadly said goodbye to the sunshine…come back! But I have to say all in all it’s been a pretty good one for me. Lot’s of events and catch ups with friends and some really interesting work related bits and bobs, so let’s dive into it shall we.
Monday started off with a lovely little trip to the Rush Hair & Beauty Salon in Moorgate for a complimentary blow dry. I absolutely adore getting my hair done, I can never achieve quite the same amount of bounce and shine when I do it myself as when I get it done in a salon. So I headed down to Moorgate, coffee in hand and had a relaxing hair wash and massage before getting it styled into curls by the lovley senior stylist Robert. The salon was so cool with a paint splattered wall which I loved and made sure to get photographs in front of! The style held really well and was perfect for a few drinks with my friends later that day. Also a quick shoutout to the gorgeous jumpsuit (pictured below) from Dorothy Perkins, I was kindly sent it a few weeks a go and it has been a style staple for when the sun has been shining – that print though!
Midweek I was lucky enough to go to a couple of beauty events with my right hand woman Yasmin. We headed to the Foreo UFO event in Oxford Circus (loving the gold balloons!) and learnt about their new Smart Mask Treatment. Then we headed down to Covent Graden to the Benefit Cosmetics #BoldIsBeautiful launch. A pop-up charity shop that will be travelling around the country to raise money and support local charities for woman. For the month of May Benefit will be donating 100% of their brow wax proceeds to local charities for woman and girls across 19 countries, so if you’re in need of a little brow maintenance make sure to show your support and head to a Benefit store near you.
Friday was spent at the Barbican centre, I was there super early for a 7.30am call time but it was pretty exciting as I got to assist and be the onsite host for a Miu Miu fashion shoot. I wasn’t given too much information about where the editorial would be seen but it was for their pre-fall collection and was a video shoot using various staircases around the arts centre. The team were really lovely, I spent the majority of time with the camera crew and logistics teams helping them get to various locations and making sure they stuck to time etc. I learnt so much by chatting to the camera men and women on the team and finding out the various jobs they had to do and what shots they needed to get. The guy heading the shoot was Alasdair Mclellan who is apparently quite a ‘big deal’ in the fashion world. The models must have been freezing – as was I but they did amazingly and the shoot was a huge success. It was so interesting to be around and see such a high profile brand in action.
Bringing the week to an end, yesterday I once again met up with Yasmin… Lee was supposed to be meeting us as well but he was still feeling a tad fragile from the Friday night so decided to stay in instead. Me and Yas headed to Pergola Paddington Central, a night-market/beer-garden kind of vibe. It’s a really cool place with loads of tables and benches, we didn’t book but managed to walk-in and get a table anyway. We got our food, me nachos and Yas bao buns, then drinks. Guys, after 2 months and 1 week I had my first alcoholic drink! A glass of prosecco saw me cheers the end to my alcohol free phase. I’m planning on writing a post regarding my relationship to alcohol so I won’t go into it to much here but I’m so pleased I went without it for so long and learnt so much during that time. We made a toast and enjoyed our food before being joined by some other friends. 11pm, kicking out time and we headed back, I decided to saty over at Yasmins as it was far easier than trekking back to North London and her bed is the comfiest bed in the world! We grabbed an apple pie and some custard from M&S on the way back (because we were craving something sweet) then curled up on the sofa to watch an old school favourite – The Sweetest Thing. Basically, a perfect Saturday night!
So there we are, once again another week done and dusted. I’m really looking forward to the next few few weeks and even months for that matter. I have all my fingers crossed that we get a little bit of sunshine back as it really does make a huge difference to my mood and productivity! The week ahead has lots of cool things in store including a mammoth photoshoot with my photographer Zoe. So as always, I hope you’ve had a delightful week yourselves and if you’d like to keep up with my day to day musings do go ahead and follow me on Instagram – @littlemisswinney. Other than that I’ll see you again for another new post on Wednesday. Hope you have a relaxing Sunday night, I plan on running a big bubble bath and catching up with last nights Britains Got Talent…wild!
