Over the weekend I took full advantage of the bank holiday and visited my family in Devon for a few days. I had such a wonderful, relaxing time. We went to a few open studios because my Mum is looking for artwork to put up in her newly built extension; one exhibition was outside, my Mum knew the artist actually, and I remember visiting her house a few times when I was younger. It's such a beautiful house, a converted barn, and it's always stuck in my mind from when I was little...but any way, this lady is spending her days outside in a beautiful little hamlet in the middle of nowhere, creating drawings, paintings and sculptures. I couldn't help but feel a pang of jealousy when I compared it to my own unstable lifestyle. BUT, we always want what we can't have ;)
I also walked the dog, baked florentines, ate a series of delicious meals, trawled charity shops in Tavistock, (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's hometown), helped my little brother buy a budgie, and had snuggles with my "baby" pet rat Elfin. A perfect weekend. Back to reality today - back to being a lowly intern once more.
Today I wore my new top, which I picked up in H&M for just £7.99!!!!! It's also available in a wine colour...I may have to go buy that one to. I felt like wearing all black today because to be quite honest it reflected my mood, and I wanted to wear my new purchase, but then I felt a little odd once outside in the beaming sun dressed like a goth. What did you all do this bank holiday by the way?
