My weekend in pictures: Food, drinks and lots of talking
It feels like my weekend started Thursday evening. My flatmate's parents came to visit and she arranged all of this:Delicious! It was so lovely meeting her parents and I see where she gets her personality from ;)Friday was just another day at work (and the terror attack...) which finished at Smiths across the road.On Saturday I went to Aje Beauty and had a LVL lash lift! More on that in another post. Walked past these beauties and could not not take a picture.After my appointment I sat on my terrace for an hour in the sun which was super lovely and warm! Before showering I decided to do two face masks cause why not? Pure clay detox mask and pure clay glow mask.My skin was all kinds of glowy after! Promise! I made a quick snack. Avo, mackerel and egg fried rice (a random mix with quinoa). Not the tastiest of lunches but hey, I'm counting down to Brazil.In the evening I met Mai who popped over from Dubai for the week. We had drinks at the Diner in Dalston, then walked over to Dalston Junction House where it was "faded". We only stayed till about 1.30 as the crowd was just a little too aggressive, haha. On Sunday I woke up pretty early and it was nice not being hungover. I made a big breakfast and sat on the terrace for an hour.. again.In the afternoon I met this BABE and we stopped by Tinie Tempah's YOUTH pop up in Shoreditch. My friend Kelly, who planned the entire thing (so cool) talked us through it all as both me and Mikaela were pretty clueless. Each room represented Tinie. There was a barber shop, bedroom, a space where you could listen to all his latest songs and some of his fave brands. More pop up's please! We then walked to Hoxton Grill and had a lovely dinner. Emelie joined us later on as well. We spoke about what happened in Stockholm and it felt good talking to someone who's Swedish. No offence to my friends over here (especially since London went through the same thing just a few weeks ago) but what happened on Friday, in "my" country, I truly felt it. It took me back to the terror attack in Oslo and I couldn't stop thinking about both events all weekend, and seeing images made me tear up. But.. I was so incredibly impressed by Stockholm and Sweden. The love everyone showed was just insane. I've read posts about shops feeding those who couldn't get home, people who opened up their homes to strangers, someone who placed his own bank card in a bookshop for parents to buy a book for their kids, free car rides etc etc. Incredible how much love we show when something tragic happens.
