My Week In Photos: 8th – 14th August

This week was a pretty busy one for me but I managed to take many photos so I call that a success!

I started the week off with an interview and ended it with my first days in a new job! It was also my first week in London without Dan (him having disappeared off to New York for 6 weeks to be important and learn stuff…), so I’ve been attempting not to go crazy from loneliness. I’ve mostly done this by distracting myself with books and painting and a lot of TV because I’m just that cool. Here’s how I captured the week in photos:

Monday

Monday was a pretty great start to the week! I had my second interview for a digital marketing role at Peppersmith and it went pretty great because I got offered the job! Despite wanting to jump on it straight away and say yes, I figured I should do the responsible adult thing and discuss it with Dan first, of course he was happy for me so I accepted!

I went out to celebrate by treating myself to new make-up:

Also, lets just take a minute to talk about how awesome my twisty hairstyle was for my interview. I’ll never be able to get it this nice again. How did I manage it?!

Tuesday and Wednesday

Both days were fairly boring and uneventful. Mostly I was just sorting out boring house stuff; unpacking / cleaning / getting our broadband set up finally!

This week was great because we finally got a settee and a second bookcase, but the highlight was definitely being awake to see an awesome sunrise from out balcony!

Thursday

Thursday was my first day working at Peppersmith and it was pretty great, I really did enjoy it! The evening was a bit of a lazy one after that but I did see a gorgeous sunset from the balcony – or rather what the sunset did to the sky. The colours and the clouds were so beautiful and I was feeling really inspired by it so I decided to paint for a while.

Friday

The end of the week and we went for lunch in the park at work which was a nice break – it was good to get out of the office for a while on such a nice day!

The Weekend

This weekend involved a little shopping, a trip to the library, lots of reading and a little more painting. Pretty much what I call the perfect weekend!
