Weekend Snapshots ~ Vol. 4

I had a travel post scheduled for today, but whenever I actually whip out my camera (or phone) and take photos over the weekend, I feel compelled to share them. So here we are.

These are the snapshots of my weekend:

1. Global Shapers #Heart4Climate

There's a lot I do in my 'real life' that I keep off the blog. Mainly work stuff and my involvement in charities or international organisations. This one was pretty cool though, so I thought I'd share it. An international organization that I'm involved in (its called Global Shapers - there's one in almost every country - and in the US, every state. You can google it and if you wish, contact your local hub; its an amazing organization) ran a Climathon this weekend in light of how badly the Caribbean has been affected by hurricanes in the last couple months. We collected non-perishable items as well as seeds and other agricultural items to help the affected islands and countries regroup and regrow. Our hub along with hubs in some other countries, formed human hearts as we stood in worldwide solidarity for our planet and doing what we can to make a difference. The French Ambassador attended and such made a great speech - it was just an amazing Saturday morning. This isn't the official drone photo of the heart - this was taken with a 360 cam but I quite like it so I posted this one :). (that was a longer paragraph than probably necessary.)

#CurrentlyLoving ~ October Favourites

*This post may contain affiliate links

If you followed me on Twitter (you should), you'd know that for the last two weeks or so, I've been nursing the worst bronchial infection. I'm not even sure how it came about, all I know is that last week for the first time in my working life, I took two consecutive sick days. It was brutal. I'd say I'm about 90% good at the moment, aside from the fact that I sound like a pubescent boy. 

Anyway, today's post ... I've been loving quite a few items this past month and since I was not quite as active this month, I haven't gotten a chance to share them. Today's the day.

Reading lately

I've been on a reading kick for the past few months, but I'm so bad at logging my reads as I should. My goodreads page is basically a deadzone and in no way reflects my reading status. That said, this particular month I didn't read that much, and honestly, Im not even sure the ones I read are worth sharing, but Ive made the decision to share whatever I read from now on, so share I shall.

As you'll see, a lot of these books were lighter reads. My reading taste absolutely depends on my mood, always has. When I have a rough work month like the past month was for me, I tend to read lighter, happier, not-too-much-thought books since my very job involves lots of reading heavy legal material daily.

Anyway, this is what I read this past month.

Coffee Chats ~ Vol. 3 (Christmas in Europe edition)

If we were having coffee, I'd first tell you, I'm sorry that this coffee date, and our chat, will be short, but this week is a hectic one for me. Work and life are both busy and while I'm at my wits end, I'm also very content. Content in the busy-ness and business of life, if that's possible.

Weekend Snapshots ~ Vol. 3

Well, just like that, it's October.

This year man, its flying by. As weekends go, this one was pretty low key. I had tons of work to do so the other stuff kinda just filtered in around that. Still, I did take a few pictures for once so I thought I'd share them:
1. Lunching
Technically, this wasn't a weekend thing, unless you count Friday as the weekend. On Friday after a full morning and early afternoon in Court I stole away for a two hour 'lunch' with a co-worker and a former co-worker. We had wine. We ate. It was a good time. Last week was a rough work week, but its amazing how a little wine and a little weekend can make you forget the woes and recharge.
