Weekend Snapshots ~ Vol 2

I used to be one of those people who sat home and did nothing on the weekend, by choice, and now I find myself having too much to do. Seasons of life I guess. This weekend was busy, but not in a non-relaxing way - none of the things I did took too much energy out of me, it was just a lot of things packed in. As weekends go though, it was a good one. 

Here are some snapshots:

Friday after work Sushi
One of my bffs Nads and I grabbed sushi on Friday at a place we never tried. Guys, it was sooo good. I've always loved sushi but this was ridiculous - the best tasting sushi ever. They tasted as good as they looked. I posted a photo on my Instagram on Friday too. Sidenote - I just started using my blog's Instagram. Would love if you'd follow it :)

Took Chanel to the Vet
I mentioned on Friday's post, that Chanel was due for her last set of shots this weekend. Pretty uneventful visit except for the fact that Chanel is a people person and doesn't particularly like cats, or cats having her mama's attention. The vet has a resident cat (a real cutie) that I always play with and Chanel was not having him on Saturday - hisses, puffed up tail and everything. For a four month old kitten, she has some sass.

The third picture was taken at home after the vet. I included it because - well i think my cat is cute.

Visited my High School
I went to a really preppy girl school that happens to also be really old. Founded in 1870 old (hence the older building that's being refurbished). Anyway, I was asked to join a mentorship programme for the Past pupils association and Saturday afternoon after dropping Chanel home, I went to my old stomping grounds for a meeting.

Bought a couple books
At some point after my meeting I stopped by a bookstore and picked up a couple books that everyone (but me) read. I'm currently whizzing through books and needed a few extra. Lets ignore the fact that I have tons on my kindle and shelf that I haven't read.

Late night Starbucks run
My friend Tisha rang me up at around 8:30 Saturday night and asked me to go with her for coffee - Yes coffee at 8:30 - and yes I slept like a baby after. (I still hate milk and couldn't even finish it)

Home with Dad
My mum is not in the country and neither is my bf. Naturally, I spent the entire Sunday relaxing with dad. No photos of that to share, but when I got back to my apartment I spent a good long time staring at the top of my desk trying to figure out what needs to go. In case you're wondering, Im still pondering.... Oh, and I painted that photo at a group painting session - who knew I was artistic (I'm not).


Those are the snapshots of my weekend. How was yours?

Have a great Monday and week!

  5. Oh Chanel is so cute and I'm not even a fan of cats. I'm so allergic to them that I can't even be in the same room as them. Cats do not like me at all, it's like they know I can't be near them. haha

  7. It's been too long since I've had a relaxing evening coffee date. Super jealous you were able to have no problem sleeping after - amazing! Life definitely goes through seasons, I always feel that we're either super low key or super busy too. Cheers to a great week gurlie <3

  10. It looks like you had such a fun filled weekend-- as much as I enjoy lazy weekends too, sometimes it is nice when you have a lot of things to keep you busy! And sometimes no matter how many books you already have to read, you just need to pick up one or two new ones :)

  11. Wait... there's a Starbucks in Trinidad now? What!

  15. Sounds like a very pleasant weekend! My Dad was here for about two weeks while my Mom was still in the USA...and he's a bit helpless when it comes to things like food, so he ate at our house everyday and he and Angel went out to some guy movies. Then Mom came home and now she keeps Dad busy as usual, haha!
