To Rome With Love

Last night, I went to the everyman in Hampstead to see Woody Allen's fantastic new film: To Rome With Love. Despite awful reviews from film critics, describing the film as extremely cliche, I adored it! The cast was brilliant with Alec Baldwin, Jesse Eisenberg,Penélope Cruz, Roberto Benigniand of course Woody Allen! It was also very funny, and managed to successfully capture the Roman culture and display the wonderful authentic Italian streets. And all through out I could not stop thinking about how excited I was for my trip to the Amalfi Coast in Italy in ten days! Expect many many pictures!

LemonAID stand

Yesterday, using six lemons, two cups of sugar and a few jugs of water; five friends and I made £65 doing a lemonade stand for a charity called Myeloma which funds research for a type of bone marrow cancer called Myeloma and supports families affected by it.
We had loads of fun and met loads of lovely people who generously donated to the charity.

September Sun

Finally developed a disposable camera which I've had since the start of summer. 
*The first pictures were from a lovely day in Kew Gardens where I enjoyed a delicious gooseberry and elderflower ice cream (which I look overly happy eating) as well as a picnic with all my favorite foods, listening to Jack Johnson and The White Stripes. The flowers were beautiful and I took many photos of the water lilies on ponds to use for my art project on Monet's water lilies. 

* A few nights ago I went to see Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds with my friend Samantha. We managed to take a few photos. It was amazing, especially since they sung tons of Oasis songs!

*And finally, my lovely weekend. Saturday morning spent swimming in Hampstead Ponds with some friends and spending hours sunbathing in the park before some yummy sushi in the evening. And today I had a delicious breakfast with another group of friends in a little cafe in the sun. I didn't have my Nikon on me so we took a quick polaroid.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend in the sun!
