Such a lovely day.
MY OUTFIT // Scarf: BURBERRY – Coat: ASOS – Shoes: GUCCI
As you know, on Saturdays both Felix and I keep the day free to only spend it with each other. Since we got back from LA, this hasn’t been possible, as I had to travel, we had guests over, and work/study took over.
But finally, yesterday, we got back to “normal” and spent such a fun, relaxing day together (and the pugs, of course).
We had a slow morning start, as usually we are up by 8am, but we decided to sleep in till 9.30 instead. We have workers outside our building, so only during the weekend we can sleep with no noise at all.
Because the city centre is probably insanely busy – being the weekend before Christmas – we opted to go on George Street, which is a cute little area full of shops and restaurants in Hove.
Often, there is this crystal stand, which calls for me, but I try to keep myself from buying anything cause I know if I pick up something, I will quickly grab more and more items. Look at the amethyst stones tho, so pretty!
We stopped by Lala’s for lunch, which is a cozy restaurant in the same road.
Their menu is unusual, so every once in a while we come here to try out their new dishes. The thing I like the most, is the interior of the place… very quirky!
Lately I haven’t had the chance to update you on my school work, but all my assignments have been going great! I’m putting lots of effort into everything I learn and turn around, so yesterday, since I was out and about, I stopped by Staples.
I’m now studying Module 11, which is about visual communication. It’s probably one of the most advanced modules yet, as I’m learning how to make orthographic projections (elevations, reflected ceiling plans, and basically every kind of drawing needed in Interior Design). And it’s all by hand.
Because of that, I had to grab some specific materials in order to make professional drawings. Unfortunately I didn’t find everything, so I will have to wait a bit longer for the final items to arrive, but that gives me time to get used to sketching.
In the past two modules, I’ve been putting together mood boards. I’ve also learned about all the documents needed once you are contacted by a client, like a Letter of Acceptance, Scope of Work, Project Cost and so on…
I’ve also got to treat my friend Emma as a client, and measured her living-room, drew her floorplan, re-designed the space based on her preferences, and a lot more. It was really fun! And good practice.
Anyway! After getting my supplies, I drove back home.
There, I found this mail box waiting for me. 🙂
Such a cool way to ship out their products! Well done, Bliss.
They included a bunch of spa-inspired products, so – probably tonight – I will make some time to pamper myself.
Felix and I relaxed a bit, playing Overcooked. You know we love this game, and we finally made it to the boss level, which we completed! Have you ever played it?
Looking out the window I saw this amazing sunset, so we prepared the pugs, and went for a walk.
We have been so lucky with the weather lately: lots of sunny days, and not much wind at all.
When we arrived to the beach, people were standing everywhere, admiring the view.
It was almost surreal. So quiet, and so stunning.
Maya and Edgar are always so happy when we come down here, as they get to run around free and meet with other dogs.
And of course play with anything that belongs to me. In this case, a glove – haha.
Any time we start walking back, away from the beach, Edgar freezes cause he doesn’t wanna leave. So cute.
Once at home, I took some time to bake these festive vegan cupcakes. I followed a recipe, but ended up switching 50% of the ingredients. They turned out very good, and super squishy! They tasted great, so I’m thinking of doing a separate blog post on them.
ALSO! A few days ago I noticed my favourite vegan burger place on Deliveroo (which is this website/app/service that delivers food from great restaurants) so we decided to order from there.
And to end the night, we wrapped gifts, and following Felix’s swedish tradition, we made up some rhymes to go with each present.
What are you up to this weekend? Are you all ready for the Holidays? Any specific plans? 🙂
