FIVE ON FRIDAY!

My, oh, my am I glad it's Friday! This week has been particularly busy at work and outside of work! I'm ready for some relaxation, shopping, and catching up on Scandal (Olivia Pope= my hero). I've got a few things to share for my Five on Friday so let's get started!

1) Lee's grandma Carole came to London this past week and we got to have dinner with her Tuesday night. We all went out to our favorite Indian restaurant in London, Amaya. Seriously, if anyone is ever visiting, you must go here! Simply amazing. Check out the dessert that our table got:

2) Since moving to London, I've noticed a big difference in my hair. It's become more dry and limp due to the high concentration of limescale in the water here. I picked up this OGX macadamia oil shampoo last week and what a difference it's made! My hair is shiny and soft again! 

3) Yoga has always been something I've been interested in, but never really explored. This Sunday, I'm trying out a yoga class at this amazing studio. It looks like such a calming, beautiful place and I'm hoping to make it a weekly thing to do. 
How gorgeous is this room?!
4) Lee and I finally hung up some prints in our living room and I'm loving how they turned out. Our flat is a work in progress, but definitely becoming more and more cozy:

5) Since moving to London, I've come to realize how much I love NC also. The Southern way of life is simply the best; from the hospitality to barbecue to biscuits, I'm so thankful to call North Carolina home. Every time I listen to this song, it makes me smile. 


" And if I die in Raleigh, at least I will die free" 

Happy Friday, everyone! I hope you all have a great weekend :)

  11. I'm interested to hear about your yoga experience. I went to a couple classes in college but they always were different due to the teacher.
