Life | This Week #044...

001) Well first things first, you will notice that I have got rid of the purple design. I still liked it but I felt that after 4 years of having the same design, it was time for a little bit of a change. I still have some things to add in the coming days and a little bit of tweaking but it shouldn't be too long before it is complete.




002) Staying with the blog theme, on Friday I took a day off work to spend some time working at Skene House in their workspace area. I went along with Georgie from The Lipstick Daily and it was really great to sit, drink tea and blog together in a lovely space. Unsurprisingly, I actually got so much more work done as I wasn't distracted by Netflix.

003) On Monday, I finally got to use my Kate Spade Agenda. So naturally, I washi-taped it up and made it look pretty. I really like it and it was great to be able to be creative with something like this.

004) My gym timetable annoyingly changed this week. Nothing too drastic although they have replaced one of my favourite Monday classes but oh well! Anyway this week I tried 2 new additions to the timetable: Body Jam (a Les Mills class nonetheless) and also Velocity. Body Jam was good but Velocity was completely on another level. It involves a 20 min HIIT session in the gym with no break. In the one I did we did 4 x 500m rows on the rowers, Kettlebell Swings, Kettlebell thrusts, Kettlebell Squats, Burpees & Sit-ups. My legs could not cope...but I'm definitely going back for more.

005) On Thursday, I attended the launch of new Thai restaurant Chaophraya where I had the prettiest cocktail that I have ever seen. Honestly, it was so good...but you're going to have to wait for the full post which is coming soon.
