28/09/2013 – Final Frock Fitting

Travelling up to Wilmslow today for my final dress fitting before my cousins wedding next weekend! It’s very near now and I’m excited to be one of three bridesmaids. Quick journey up in first class Virgin train, disappointed the service is so different from the weekday trains, but hey ho, better than nothing, and theContinue reading “28/09/2013 – Final Frock Fitting”

27/09/2013 – Back and Breathless

I’m back on the running, but gosh it’s hard! I go through phases of how consistent I am with my running, with my last run being 12km to work, then suddenly, nothing. But no, I’m officially back on it! With a 40 minute startup run 🙂 here’s a photo from my route this morning. NiceContinue reading “27/09/2013 – Back and Breathless”

26/09/2013 – From one Capitol to the Next

.. And in style! Headed back to London today as I had a meeting at 5, and then a hootsuite meet up or “HootUp” later on. Met some lovely people at the latter! All in all a busy day of travelling and meeting new people.

25/09/2013 – Bore Da Cymru!

Good morning Wales! It was absolutely lovely waking up in sunny Wales this morning! A day and a half to thoroughly chill out. I got my hair cut this morning and then chilled out with mum in the living room, bliss. Walked into town and noticed it’s most certainly autumn, lovely! Then dinner and drinksContinue reading “25/09/2013 – Bore Da Cymru!”

24/09/2013 – Wandering Warsaw

The weather was absolutely stunning today in Warsaw. Mum and I spent the time before our flight exploring the city, indulging in ice cream, and naughtily returning to the Michelin restaurant again for lunch! I’m back in Cardiff tonight to visit my family home after a long time away in London (for me anyway!). BusyContinue reading “24/09/2013 – Wandering Warsaw”

23/09/2013 – Blustery BaiƂystok

Today was our last day in BaiƂystok, a lovely polish town that’s far from touristy. We did a spot of shopping and meandering through the park before our drive back to Warsaw where we’re spending one last night before leaving Poland. This hotel is phenomenal – we ate at a Michelin restaurant that has complimentaryContinue reading “23/09/2013 – Blustery BaiƂystok”

22/09/2013 – Finding Our Roots

Another lovely day getting to know our extended polish family. We’re out here meeting my mum’s cousins, which means I also get to meet my second cousins! It’s all pretty exciting and nerve wrecking as my polish is appalling (read: non-existent after please and thank yous). We found my great grandparents grave today, it wasContinue reading “22/09/2013 – Finding Our Roots”

21/09/2013 – The Big Polish Day!

After taking so many photos I found it so hard to chose just one for this post, but here it is! Polish weddings are something else, I’ve had so much fun – with so many surprises! This wasn’t a cake with sparklers in it, it’s a boar.. with sparklers in it.. that the grandad ofContinue reading “21/09/2013 – The Big Polish Day!”

20/09/2013 – Heading to Poland

After a wonderful night, I have a killer hangover to follow. But no time to wallow on that – we’re off to Poland! My grandad is polish, and thus we have a huge polish side to our family I don’t know much about. But we’ve been invited to a wedding here, so what better wayContinue reading “20/09/2013 – Heading to Poland”

19/09/2013 – Bright and Colourful

My new favourite skirt – you know when you buy something and straight away it becomes an ‘old faithful’? That’s how I feel about this! Big news today, this is my last day at my current job! A big goodbye party left with a huge hangover, but it was definitely worth it. End of oneContinue reading “19/09/2013 – Bright and Colourful”
