It looks like we did a lot, but we didn’t. 

jump, yasmine, jump!

jump, yasmine, jump!

september 15 } yasmine and i get a mani-pedi at a very seedy nail salon called lily’s nails. they sort of do the job. best thing about this place is the massage chairs which give a new meaning to ‘deep tissue massage’

i get a message from an IG friend informing me that his eves have arrived. he lives in ‘rural america’ with his three eves. i love what he did here. if you’re on instagram and would like to check his account, it’s 48_stars

september 16 } yasmine and i head to covent garden to meet with david dobson. it turns out to be a bit of a mouse and cat chase hunt, and in the rain no less

IMG_7774

we finally find him at jamie’s italian

IMG_7776

he’s with helmy (from cac) and his wife victoria. i didn’t really know helmy in school but was friends with his sister when i attended AUC

IMG_7777

yasmine, victoria, helmy, an excited umbrella, me and david in the pouring rain. yasmine and i are so pooped after this. we go home, order a netflix movie and munch on a week’s worth of pret sandwiches and salads

september 17 } we visit tareq at work. thankfully it’s a clear day today

on our way to the hair dressers, yasmine and bottlecap art

after the salon we go back home to pick up the tap and take her with us to green and stone’s to test a bag i saw earlier and feel is perfect for her. the tube is empty so we seize the opportunity

IMG_7800

hurry, yasmine, hurry!

IMG_7802

we spend too much time at dinner so miss green and stone’s. we go to battersea park instead

a plane flies by, disrupting the peace

eve and buddha are buddies
