JC Chats: Wonderful Wednesday #2
And we’re back with this weeks Wonderful Wednesday – I’m keeping these every 2 weeks, mainly to go with my new ethos of putting less blog pressure on myself. It’s been a pretty good couple of weeks, work is still really busy, but I did manage to get a filling done! I know it’s sounds silly but I’ve been dreading the dentist for ages and I’m so glad it’s over and done – and it didn’t hurt one bit. Now I’ve just got my hospital appointment for my wisdoms to get through in October! The joys of teeth hey… Well, let’s put that to the side and get on with the proper wonderful bits that have been happening recently.
A bit of a random one, but we haven’t done much to flat since we got the bathroom done earlier in the year. I’ve been inspired by the Hygge book as with every other blogger and now I’m on a rampage of interior decorating. I never really thought about our lights but they’ve always had a off globe lampshades on them and I hate the colour of the light so we just end up using the lamp. I bought these pendant lamps from Made which are white and copper and I’m totally in love. I am firmly jumping on the copper bandwagon and I love it. We are now on a mission to find just the right wattage of bulb to really give us that cozy living room feeling.
Hanger SW6, Fulham
On Wednesday I headed to the opening of Below the Cut, a cool new liquor bar underneath Hanger SW6 in Fulham. The bar itself is very cool, feels very snug with wooden slats and big couches. I went with my friend Lucy and it was so nice to catch up with her. We tried out a few of the cocktails and they were delicious! The ginoncello with gin and limoncello was a definite favourite – can’t beat some citrus. I can’t wait to go back, not only for the drinks but to try the steak upstairs too. I don’t explore Fulham enough, especially when it’s so close by!
I promise I will write something on my current fitness kick in the next few weeks. But I’ve started peppering my workouts with Yoga Camp by Yoga with Adrienne. I adore these workouts for those days where I just want to chill out and be mindful, especially if it’s been a particularly long day at work. Her yoga workouts are just the best – easy to follow and always give me a giggle.
Stuffed Sweet Potato
Need I say more? I’ve become obsessed with baking sweet potato then stuffing them with a delicious concoction. Somehow, so much better than a normal potato. The best so far has been stuffing with a mexican chicken and pepper mix which has been fried off, covering with a little cheese and a drizzle of sour cream. I could probably eat these all day.
On Saturday, I pretty much ate my own weight in food. I headed off to Made London to meet Charlie for her birthday brunch with some of the girls. It was my first official bottomless brunch! Unfortunately the service was pretty lame and it took a little while for the booze to actually start flowing. Though my meal was pretty delish – hard poached eggs (sacrilegious I know, but it’s how I like em’!), loads of smoked salmon and a side of hollandaise to dip it into. Plus, it was so lovely to see all the gals. I see more bottomless brunches definitely on the cards in future. Plus, I then got to have a long wander (to my next meal of course) through Regents Park in some attempt to walk it off!
The next couple of weeks will mainly focus on study as my exam is coming up soon (ahhh) and I’m in mega revision mode. There are posters up in the shower and everything. Though with the weather drawing in a bit more, it definitely makes it easier to study than when the sun is blaring! And then only 3 weeks until my little trip to Paris! Woo!
What’s been wonderful for you in the past few weeks?
