Week Notes #8

 

Hi all, hope you’re having a wonderful Sunday evening however you’re spending it. 

It’s been a fairly quiet week for me although I did spend Friday at RBSA and Argentea checking out their latest exhibitions which also involved treating myself to a long overdue visit to Saint Kitchen for a chai and a vegan brownie. 

As I’m getting back into the swing of trying to consistently upload content on here, I’m eager to expand on my skills so Lucy Lucraft’s sale on her courses prior to going on maternity leave has come at the right time for me. I’ve signed up for her SEO For Beginners ecourse. 

I’ve also signed up for the Grow & Glow community which launched it’s latest enrollment yesterday (Saturday 3rd August). I’m looking forward to getting inspired by my fellow bloggers who have joined and making use of the vast array of resources.

 

• A woman’s greatest enemy? A lack of time to herself

• Clara from The Balance Collective’s tips on how to read more books

 

WHAT I’VE WATCHED

• This vox pop where a woman from the East End recounts her memories of getting her first television set and the role TV has played in family and community life. 

• The return of Who Do You Think You Are, I’m fascinated by the stories that get uncovered. Daniel Radcliffe and Naomie Harris have featured so far in this series. 

Fosse/ Verndon featuring the ever watchable Michelle Williams in a biopic of director – choreographer Bob Fosse and his wife actress and dancer Gwen Verndon which tells the story of the couple’s troubled personal and professional relationship.
