I visited Somerset House on my day off to check out the Sony World Photography Awards exhibition.
These were a few of my faves <3
Burgers at Meat Liquor to celebrate Sadie’s 28th birthday!
Dream team meeting.
Organising the donation rail at Auto trader, a few highlights from Sew for Shelter during Craft Week where anyone could embroider what home means to them and a few outfit shoots for our work Instagram.
Team work makes the dream work.
My girl, Tina, got involved with Style for Shelter – doesn’t she look great?!
We also treated ourselves to Dishoom for lunch and it was absolutely delish!
Tucka Burger’s truck came to Granary Square and my God, best burger I’ve had all year.
Well done, lads!
Cute dinosaur plants at Wolf and Badger.
Loved the light in my room after work.
As did Sophie!
I didn’t know what to do for dinner after work one day so James ordered me a Thai takeout.
What a dreamboat!
Spotted another @notestostrangers poster.
Cool lunchtime views.
Some good books I read this month.
Yum Chinese food with Tina and Hermina at Café TPT.
The first time that James met my family and we had a Taiwanese feast at Leong’s Legend.
Cute new panda keyring from my fave aunt <3
A 16-piece orchestra performing Destiny’s Child’s greatest hits?
Til’s first exhibition! <3
Til’s hen weeknd in Dorset, featuring big art attack to make Til’s face out of what we could find on the beach, keeping an egg in-tact (Til is no longer my friend), swimming and hot-tubbing, delicious home-cooked food, an Abba dance class and a walk and a roast to top it all off!
I got this card for James’ birthday because:
- He loves udon.
- He loves Etsy more than anyone I know.
- Who doesn’t love a good pun?!
We went to Bournemouth, had fish and chips, lazed around on the beach and wandered around the aquarium.
The best laksa at Laksamania <3
At the Lush on Oxford Street, they can show you the effects of the bath bombs which was cool and super helpful when it came to deciding which ones to get as birthday presents for friends.
In the wake of her brother’s suicide last year and mother’s death 3 years earlier, Ella turned to her sketchbook to heal, reflect and motivate herself through her grief. The result is a vibrant collection of work celebrating love, life and empowerment through difficult times.
A percentage of the profits from the series of beautiful prints, postcards and other original work were donated to The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM), a leading movement against male suicide, the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK.
Ella: “On the 28th April 2018 I decided to take myself off to the art shop and buy a cheap A6 sketchbook and a pack of Posca pens. My idea was to draw one page of illustration a day in this sketchbook as I needed to give myself at least an hour a day to switch off to concentrate on myself. My Brother wasn’t just my brother, he was an incredible writer, supporter of my work, passionate film critic and someone with endless potential. He was creative and kind and the loss of that was painful and I felt it was all such a waste. Rather than spend my time being angry, I wanted to take myself away and fill my time with something that was going to help me focus and my #ella365project gave me that.”
I wanted to record the first time that James properly cooked me a meal that he hadn’t just bunged in the oven/microwave, haha!
A few of my favourite photos from the Photo London exhibition at Somerset House.
The view from inside was beaut too!
Glad to see that the coaster that I got James last Christmas is still keeping a watchful eye over him at work.
