FIVE FOR FRIDAY #36

 
It feels like forever since I typed out a blog post. I've been a bit quiet the past few weeks due to back to back trips for work and for play. It's been a bit of a whirlwind and it's not over yet but that's the exciting part. I was worried when I took on my job that, although amazing, the travel may get too much for me. I can't lie and say I look 100% fresh faced but I'm loving it. I'm loving exploring new places, meeting lots of new people and generally feeling happy in my 'career' (the word still scares me and makes me feel like too much of an adult...)

This week I returned from holiday. Yes, an actual holiday. Not a work trip. It was great and I'll tell you more about it over the coming weeks.

The week ahead for me is basically Las Vegas. Again, for work but seriously LAS VEGAS. I am beyond excited. BEYOND EXCITED. I've never been before and I honestly think it'll blow my mind. I also think that I would only want to go the once and then I'd be ready to leave. I've just got a feeling.

THIS WEEK'S FIVE FOR FRIDAY:

BUDAPEST - God it was nice to have a holiday, like so, so nice I can't even put it into words. It was a scorching 36 degrees for the duration of the holiday which was a tad too much for me but it meant an excuse to laze at the baths by day and drink ice cold G&T's at the Ruin Bars by night. I had massages. We went on a river cruise. It was wonderful and I'm already planning my next trip back to Budapest (maybe when it's 10 degrees cooler...)

COMING HOME - Which probably sounds crazy having this as a highlight of my week but it was really nice to go back to my house after a week away. You see, I only moved in with my friend in June and it actually feels like I have a home now, rather than a place I rent that feels more formal. It was amazing to sleep in my own bed, sprawl out and wake up to my usual routine the following day.

HAVING A TAN - Going on holiday = having a tan. MY FAVE. I feel more confident in my own skin when it's a little tanned. I look a little thinner, healthier and generally just have that glow about me. Plus, freckles galore on my nose!

NEW CDS IN THE CAR - Retro! I got the new Maccabees album, Slaves and Circa Waves before going away and have been playing them in the car to and from work everyday. The Maccabees new album is absolute perfection. I can't get enough of it. And Slaves have allowed me to be a bit shouty this week which has really helped with certain situations that have raised my stress levels!

MIX AND MATCHING OUTFITS - I have a bit of a spending problem 90% of the time. I am frivolous no matter how much money I have and it's dangerous. So, right now, I'm trying to mix and match the things I have. It's working out fairly well so far but I still spend a lot of time browsing ASOS/Forever 21/Boohoo/Monki/anything with clothes/shoes/accessories.

Until next week...I hope you all have a fab weekend.
