The Sunday Post: Coffee, Cameras &… Ukeleles?

This weekend we bought a Ukelele – I know. What even went through my mind? Josh had been thinking about picking one up for a while, and after we went into store to take a look we found ourselves smitten with dark wooden Makala – nothing fancy but it’s so cute. I’m currently still at the very beginning when it comes to learning, but after I gave up playing instruments 12 years ago it feels nice to start learning again. Oh and that other purchase? I picked up the Canon EOS M in hope of saving my back on days where I need to carry my laptop and camera. It’s just what I needed.

Apart from getting a little spendy, this weekend has mostly revolved around preparing for three days of London-ness this week. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday. Crazy. The flat has been cleaned from head to toe and videos for next week are already in process. After promising I’d be home more in 2014 (to prove I’d be home enough to get a dog), I’m currently feeling like a massive fail. However, I get to see Luce on Tuesday for breakfast so that totally makes up for the lack of pugs in my life!

Seeing as I’ve got a super busy week and a new camera I thought I’d maybe put together a little vlog for you guys? Let me know if it’s something you want to see as I’m really excited to put my new toy to good use!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! x

    I used to play a Ukelele years ago when I was about twelve, I used to be so cool playing the kooks songs to all of my school mates, its a shame I can't remember how to play now! I've also always wanted to get a dog but with my prospective full-time jobs the likeliness of it happening is pretty much zero. Would love seeing some vlogs from yourself, love watching your youtube videos!

    Great buys! πŸ™‚ β™₯ The camera looks lovely. I need a smaller one like that.
    I'm also envious of anyone who can play a musical instrument so it's brilliant that you want to try it out.
