topshop via ebay top
topshop boots (similar here)
I had a lovely weekend away from the internet and I feel like I should do it more often. I dont think I even turned my computer on for a whole 48 hours which is suprisingly liberating when you live/work online! I must do it more often. However today has been spent like everyday, working on blog content, finishing editing a video (which is now live!) and replying to emails. I have my gym session at half 7, which is loads later than I normally go and it feels good to not actually be stressing out about getting everything done before I have to go work out! Maybe I need to replan my days! I also watched the latest episode of Game of Thrones, I cant believe there is only two more episodes of the series left before we all have to wait ANOTHER year to watch it! As someone who's read the books, seriously the next episodes are going to be something else.
I bought these trousers at the weekend because I'd been meaning to get something from the Celia Birtwell for Uniqlo collection for ages now and although I'd originally had my eye on one of the beautiful printed shirts (which sold out so quickly!) I decided to opt for some of the trousers. In a suprise twist of fate I decided to get the blue ones rather than the more neutral options from the collection! I just loved the vibrant turquoise colour and I think they are a really eye-catching and statement piece. Perfect for summer and will be great to wear on evenings out paired with a vest when the weathers a bit warmer!

I bought my Ukulele of ebay one night when I was really bored, stressed and emotional. I dont know why, I've never really had much intrest in playing a Ukulele specifically but I thought it would be something new to do. Ukulele's have a high sucess rate in learning to play as it is actually very easy to pick up. I love my white one as I was going through a white phase at the time and I love the way it looks. You can get them in loads of different shapes, colours and sizes but I opted for this one purely because it was the first that came up. I would recommend getting some new strings for it as well, I use the Aquila ones which were recommended to me by my teacher.
Lina mentioned that we should go to lessons so we decided to book a block of four with Learn to Uke. We decided to go to the absolute beginners class despite both knowing how to play a little before we went. Lorraine is a great teacher and the sessions lasted 2 hours and moved fairly quickly. We'd learn 3-4 songs per lessons as well as new chords each time. Now it sounds like it movers very quickly but I found it much better as it meant a lot at home practice but the more I felt like I had someone to show me then go home and practice the easier I found it. The price was really fair and I think me and Lina have decided to go to the next block of classes when we next have free time.
Other than my Uke lesson I've been watching a host of videos on Youtube teaching you how to strum and do various other things. It's easy to keep watching over and over as everything is repeatable. Their are tons of Ukulele tabs all over the internet as well to keep you occupied and to be honest most Uke songs are very simple to play.
In all I've loved learning to play my Ukelele and I cant wait to keep going with classes and play more. I couldn't believe how far I'd come in just four two hour lessons and practicing for about 30 mins a day. I really want to make background music for my Youtube videos next!
