You can tell it’s been a busy one when I make a post dedicated entirely to my weekend. I’ve been looking forward to this weekend for a long time and on Wednesday evening, I was given all the more reason to be excited which I will expand on later on. Everyone has praised this weekend for the beautiful weather and that has just been a bonus!
- Attended one of my closest friend’s wedding.
I’m at that stage in life now where everyone is getting engaged, getting married, buying houses together. But I was truly blessed to see one of my closest friends get married this weekend. I’ve known her for over a decade now and watching her marry the man of her dreams was something I will never forget. And as far as weddings go, this one was pretty magical. I’ve never been a fan of weddings, and I can’t really pinpoint why. But the decorations were Pinterest worthy (they had big LOVE light letters like in my image above), the song choices enough to make grown men cry (and they did, bless) and everyone looked stunning.
2. Used fake tan for the first time.
Yes, my pasty self succumbed. I’ve never been ashamed of my pale skin but I have always wondered what it would look like if I had a tan. The rest of my family have lovely olive-y skin that darkens all the more when they even so much as look at the sun so I don’t know what happened to me. I’m probably adopted. But I tried the St. Tropez gradual tan for the first time ever. My sister’s used it before so she recommended it to me and I have to admit, I was nervous that I was going to come out looking like an oompa loompa. But the whole experience of fake-tanning was way less TOWIE than I expected. You had to ensure that you didn’t get the tan wet after the first four-eight hours of application so I showered beforehand. You then exfoliate and moisturise everywhere so that it’s all prepped for the tan. When it came out of the bottle, I was shocked. It was so dark even though my sister had bought the lightest colour. When it came out of the tube, it looked like someone had shoved Nutella up there. But once you applied it, you could see immediately that it had a lovely bronzed look. It took a little while for the colour to come out but when it did, I was extremely impressed. It’s a few days later now and it’s still slightly there.
3. Was nominated for a film award.
Dun dun dun! Bet you guys didn’t see that coming because I certainly didn’t. My old tutor messaged me during the week saying that I had been nominated for an award at our local film festival which had been running all week. My film that had been nominated was one of my old student films which I directed, wrote and produced by myself so I was very chuffed. I didn’t end up winning but it felt very cool going up to the ticket-man and saying that I was a nominee so I didn’t need to buy a ticket. Living the high life. I was truly honoured and it left me with the need to produce another film.
4. Applied for my provisional license.
Yes, you heard it here first, folks. Your girl is becoming an adult. I’ve been meaning to take driving lessons for a number of years now but whenever anyone asked me, I always replied that I didn’t want to try until I was completely ready. By nature, I’m quite anxious and I was scared that if I pushed myself into driving too soon, it would end up in a load of wasted money. But now, the longer that I get the bus to work, the more I insist to myself that I should be driving a car of my own. It would make life a lot easier for both myself and those around me so I’m incredibly excited about that.
5. Watched Hook.
By far the laziest thing that I did this weekend. But I enjoyed it so much so it needed its own mention here. I’m pretty sure anyone and everyone has seen this film, it’s an absolute classic. And if you haven’t – you need to ASAP! Watching it for the first time in a long while meant that I could appreciate the screenwriting, the adult humour and the fact that I miss Robin Williams all the more. I’ve been a little obsessed with watching his films at the moment and ‘thank you for believing’ (one of his final lines in the film) made me emotional. I wish he had believed in himself a lot more.
What did you guys get up to this weekend? Do you like these posts where I just tell you what I’m up to?
