Another romantic day with Felix.
OUR OUTFITS // Dress: LAZYOAF – Shirt: HERESYLONDON
I feel like, for a little while, my posts have been coming during the weekend, and have been about me and Felix being all cute. I hope it’s not getting too much! 😛
I’ve simply been working and studying and dealing with doctors during the week, so the only free day I get, in which I have time to blog, is either a Saturday or a Sunday.
Either way, here is what I did today!
The i360 tower has been here since the beginning of the summer.
Felix and I, as well as all of our friends, dislike the idea of it – but especially how it looks like.
Now, don’t get me wrong: this could look cool, the design is interesting, and lots of people voted to have this built here in Brighton & Hove, but the thing is that I don’t personally think a tower this modern fits with the victorian look of the city, and if you really wanted to have it, at least don’t place it right by the seafront, where you cannot avoid looking at it.
Another problem I have with it, is that when the “egg”/”spaceship” is up, it looks okay, but most of the time it’s down, on the ground, leaving this metal chimney on its own, looking pretty strange. And some kind of illumination at night time wouldn’t hurt either.
Anyway. Since I have been so harsh on it even before it was built, I decided to give it a chance and go check it out. We went as soon as it opened, this morning, and we were surprised by how long the line was (usually we don’t see many people). Because of it, we actually skipped it, but hey – I will try to give it a chance, sooner or later!
Instead, we went to the good ol’ Lanes. It was a great shopping day, as both Felix and I found a few things we really liked.
We entered this one shop we always pass by but never went inside, and we found the cutest pots!
I forgot to check out the name of the place itself, but if you do like these little planters, you should be able to find them by googling the maker, Atelier Stella.
The owner of the shop told me she had an exposition recently, showcasing all of the artist’s work, and out of hundreds she made for the event, these were the only ones left. Collectors came hours before the shop even opened to grab plenty of them. Isn’t that amazing?!
Any time I’m by the Lanes, I eat lunch at the Loving Hut. Nothing new. Best vegan food ever.
Luckily, back on Wednesday I went to see a specialist (a gastroenterologist) and he gave me medicines that are actually doing miracles. I’m eating more and more, as I normally would, without feeling anything bad afterwards. I can even sleep laying down now. I’m so happy! Although it is because of the meds, at least I can live life as usual, lately, which I thought would never be possible again, to be honest.
I’m still going to get all my exams done soon, and will let you know what the cause of my problems is. But for now, I just wanted you to know that things have improved SO much since last week. 🙂
This is some street art I saw before leaving the centre, and I thought it was beautiful so I had to snap a photo of it. It’s an image of the Royal Pavilion, here in Brighton.
So here are the two plant pots I got for the flat. I LOVE THEM. They look so adorable together.
And this is a cool chessboard we bought!
Oh! I almost forgot! When I arrived home, I found a package. The other day I ordered this little cutie, and I decided to call him Cetriolo (means cucumber in Italian). You can check out the shop I got if from, if you would like, by clicking here.
In the afternoon, of course, Felix and I spent some time drawing and colouring another canvas for our charity shop. The ones for this month are going to be up for sale very soon.
This one, instead, is the first one we made from the new cycle, and will be up in October. What do you think? Any subject suggestions for future ones?
Right now I’m waiting for dinner to be ready. Felix decided to treat me so much today, and ended up with cooking me meatballs (meat-free) and boiled potatoes. He is such a good cook! He doesn’t cook often, but I think that makes it even more special, because when he does prepare a dish, he makes sure it’s as delicious it can be.
I sneakily went into the kitchen to check on him, and here he is, licking his fingers.
Today was such a great day. After feeling sick for so long, now I make sure even more that I enjoy every little in life. It sounds so cheesy, but I’ve spent a lot of time feeling really bad, couldn’t eat, couldn’t do things normally, and felt really down about it. It’s not over, but being able to go on as usual, for the last few days, felt incredible.
I’m so grateful, and looking forward to fully recover soon.
Finally, thank you so much again to all the people that care about knowing how I am doing, and want to share experiences and help. It means a lot!
Have a lovely weekend.
