The Sunday Brunch Post, Episode VIII

DISCLAIMER: Brunch still not included.

I can't believe how quickly time is passing now that I'm in the full swing of full-time work. Surely it can't be two weeks already since I sat down and rambled about life?

Mildly interesting things that happened this fortnight:

I had the most amazing time in London with Tom last weekend. We stayed in a hotel in Southwark and mostly spent the two days eating and wandering around some of our favourite parts of the city. I vlogged the whole weekend, which will be up on my YouTube channel next week!

This weekend I'm visiting my cousins in Newcastle; it's so lovely to see them as I don't get the privilege often enough, and we always have so much fun when we're together. Thanks for having me girls!

Things that have kept me entertained:

My entertainment shout-outs are music based this week, as sadly I haven't really found the time to read, and I'm still catching up with Dickensian and War and Peace on my train journeys. 

My favourite album at the moment is Sia's This Is Acting, and at this point I'm going to direct you to Joe's review, because it brilliantly sums up everything I feel about the album. 

I've also discovered the soundtrack to the musical Hamilton, which I've listened to every day since. At first I really wasn't keen, but somehow that's turned into a full-on obsession...

This fortnight’s haul:

Whilst in London we popped into Primark and I couldn't leave without this shirt-dress, which is a great addition to my work wardrobe. 

I was super happy to see that this Topshop dress that I'd been eyeing up for a while was in the sale. I bought it in petite (which is normally right for me as a girl of 5ft2), but I've found that the length is much too short to wear with just tights if I want to be able to lift my arms above waist height. It looks great with leggings though!

I also bought #Girlboss by Sophie Amoruso, which I've been wanting to read for ages. Review to follow, I'm sure!

Posts I’ve loved:

And finally, here’s a round-up of what I posted over the last two weeks, in case there’s anything you want to catch up on:
