I know, I know – it’s now June and the #photoamay Instagram Challenge is over, but I really enjoyed sharing my week in pictures with you all so thought I’d still keep going with these weekly round up posts. Have a look below and see what I’ve been up to this week (and don’t forget you can follow me over at Instagram.com/emsypickle to catch the action as it happens!)
It was my mum’s birthday last week so we all got together to celebrate, starting with pre-lunch nibbles and champagne in the garden
Here’s the big birthday carrot cake I made for mumsy (as you can see I had a bit of a nightmare with the icing melting in the heat, which my boyfriend said “made it look authentically homemade” haha!)
On Wednesday I went to the Blogger’s Love Birthday Party event at Embargo 59 in Chelsea, where I got to meet the lovely Aftab from Fresh and Fearless blog.
Another birthday party! My favourite pizza restaurant Stingray Cafe is celebrating it’s 10th year throughout June, so my friends and I decided mojitos were definitely in order when we went for dinner on Thursday (and I’m sure we’ll be back for more very soon!)
I’ve been trying out my new Dr Organic Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner which I received as part of my #HollandandBarrettBuddies campaign goodies. Keep your eyes peeled for a full review coming soon!
Something very exciting happened on Friday – I won tickets to see One Direction at Wembley Stadium! *All the screams!* I couldn’t believe I won and had such a fab night – thank you so much Little Mistress for the tickets!
To add to the excitement of seeing the 1D boys live, fellow blogger – the gorgeous Stefy Puglisevich – also won tickets! Stefy and I had “met” before on Twitter from the bblogger chat so it was so nice to get to meet her and have a good old gossip in person!
One of my favourite things about the concert were the amazing abundance of fireworks that accompanied the music! I love fireworks!!! It was such an amazing experience and I took heaps of photos and videos, many of which are on my Instagram page.
On Saturday we went for dinner with some friends to Chooks in Muswell Hill and ate quite a lot of delicious fried chicken! Finger lickin’ good!
So there you go, a quick look at what I’ve been up to this week. I hope you’ve enjoyed this post, please leave me your Instagram names so I can follow your adventures too!
