February Uncut

Hey-ho everyone – it's been a while, and it's been a busy and fun-filled month. I ran away to sunny Madrid for a couple of days and got disillusioned with 'blogging' and whatever that means, so this isn't really a 'how-to' post or any sort of directioned outfit style... to be honest, I wish my life was filled with moments like these, laidback and effortless, which is more of me and less like I'm supposed to instagram every single waking moment.

After a very eventful CNY, we hopped on a very early plane to Espana...

We spent four days in Madrid and walked everywhere, weaving through passageways and rainy alleys. Regretfully, I no longer have the capability of prose like I used to so walking the same paths feels so different than I did five years ago. Everything is more vibrant and less broody, and seeing art in the Prado became more skeptical (sad?) but we did spend ages hunting down delicious tapas, desserts, cakes and tart... nothing I'm complaining about.

Most days, we woke up leisurely and find ourselves a wake-up meal in Malasana before trekking out to one of the many El Corte Inglรจs in the city. There's so many things to do and see, and I love the the vibe and especially the fashion in Spain - nabbed a couple of last-minute clearance from Pull & Bear and possibly my new favourite store, lefties. It's so much more colourful over in Madrid, and I absolutely loved it!

This past week, I've been running errands and 'getting ready' for starting work next week (itself an entire story but I'm too lazy to repeat it here) and enjoying the last of my free time watching loads of TV. Vanessa also sent over some tea (thanks again) and banana cinnamon is the best tea I've had in a while so I'm eternally grateful... until it runs out <3

Yesterday evening was our housewarming and it was great to see so many of our friends and just catching up. Marie brought us some flowers which are sitting very nicely on the coffee table and now it's a nice and (too slow) Sunday for me so we're heading out for a film later on to anticipate the dreaded week...

Nonetheless - let me know what you're up too :-) and tell me how life has been, my friends!
