✿ What else I've been up to this week ✿

1. First Summer Job Week. I'm sorry that I didn't post that much this week, but I have been just so exhausted after work that I've just slouched on the sofa and tried to catch up with my reading, but it feels so hopeless. I just ate and slept and worked the whole week. I'm sure it will get better though as I get used to working full-time.

2. Get-away Weekend. Like I already mentioned, my week was pretty consuming work-wise. So,  I decided to do a small get away and de-stress myself completely. I went to this family summer cottage with some family and I ended up having wonderful time. Good food, hilarious company, and some homemade peach wine were spot on!

3. Watercolour painting. I mentioned some weeks ago how I wanted to try out using watercolours, and now my equipment finally arrived in the mail! It has been pretty fun trying out different things, but I have to say it is rather challenging at certain areas as well - I feel like things to learn will never ends which is of course a good thing!


  1. I've always wanted to try watercolour painting but I'm not that artistic... Show us some pics of your masterpieces? :)


  2. The quizz marks me as an Assassin ;) My sister uses watercolors, she says it took her some time to handle it and finally get what she wants. I'd love to see your paintings ! Have a great week !

  3. Getaways are always nice. I see We were Liars on your Top Ten list and that sounds pretty good- I've been seeing that one pop up so must be popular. It does looks like a good beach read. Have a great week ahead and good luck with the painting!


You can't see me, but I'm totally doing my happy dance as I read your comment!
