Weekly Love – Week 77
+ Totally in love with my new Ciate paint pot colour – shame the formula is not as good as my beloved Essie…
+ This fact about Hamlet that Katy left for me in her comment about my weekend in London post: Did you know that when David Tennant performed as Hamlet for the RSC, the skull used for Yorick was that of composer/pianist Andre Tchaikowsky, who, in his will, donated his skull to the RSC and asked for it to be used as a prop on stage, but Tennant was one of the only Hamlet’s who felt comfortable using a real skull. A little bit of nerd theatre info for you there! Incidentally, Andre Tchaikowsky donated the rest of his body to medical science, not just his skull! This is yet another reason why David Tennant is my favourite Hamlet!
+ Betty has posted some pictures from her trip to San Francisco – god I miss that city…
+ Daniela already knows me well enough to know to send me a bbm when she’s in the Selfridges food hall.
+ Penny slot machines at the seaside. Except, you now have to play with 2p pieces not 1p!
+ Recording a pilot for a current affairs podcast with my best friend. It will never go public, but it was a great test run for a podcast that I hope I’ll be able to share with you soon!
+ Maroon 5’s ‘Moves Like Jagger’ music video – so awesome!
+ The smell of the BBQ being lit.
+ Working on my English Breakfast pizza recipe.
+ Taylor Swift’s ‘Sparks Fly’ video – her live shows look like such fun!
+ Listening to Katy Perry’s ‘One Of The Boys’ album – still incredible!
+ Pinkberry frozen yogurt in Selfridges.
+ Some of the best calamari I’ve ever tasted, in Chimichanga.
+ I want this Wildfox sweater in black – why does it have to be so expensive?!
+ An afternoon at Bluewater and dinner out to celebrate my getting into University and my imminent move to London – fantastic, even if my discovering that I was allergic to coconut milk in a very bad way at the restaurant! Thank you to everyone for your such kind and lovely congratulations messages!
+ I want this clutch from Emily Cho – so chic!
