Thursday Treats: Spending time in the Sunshine

After a glorious start to the week (a bank holiday weekend with actual sun, who would have thunk it?!) it’s starting to become a little less sun-drenched in the UK today, but that’s certainly not going to put a dampener on my spirits. Gareth & I started the week with a trip to Bekonscot model village, a pub lunch and a walk… Christ how old are we!? But it was so lovely spending a whole day outside, away from our computers and spending some quality time together. We definitely need to do it more often.

We also went to my friend Jo’s wedding over the weekend which was awesome (photo above of some of the rainbow instax that I took). We had so much fun and I can’t wait to see David’s photos – especially the photo booth and the dancing shots because, oh boy, did we make a spectacle of ourselves!

Today we’re off to Brighton for a shoot with Lisa which will illustrate one of the many brand new articles that I’m working on right now for issue 3 of the magazine. It’s all coming along so well and so quickly (I’m totes excited!) and I can’t bloomin’ waaaaait to see how it all turns out.

Apart from that it’s been a pretty uneventful week though… And you?
