I meant to post this Nutshell blog post on Sunday but as always time escaped me an the Bank Holiday zoomed on past. 

The first two pictures are from the lovely magazine that Jemma produced for her FMP at University, I'm so happy that she commissioned me to create an illustration for it as it's such a pretty looking magazine. 

I went to see the new Charlie and the Chocolate Factory musical on Thursday evening after work and at the moment it is still in previews but if that is anything to go by it's going to be a massive hit. It was packed full and had a great reaction. It's a lot of fun and very cleverly done.

The weather was perfect yesterday and Sunday. I met up with one of my best friends who I hadn't seen for a while in town. I went shopping a bit before hand and bought some cute outfits (the two above, one very much holiday attire and one definitely our summer attire: the black jumper and skirt.) We walked around London, feeling the sun on our skin and being tourists around Buckingham palace which was surprisingly quiet and really rather lovely, before relaxing in St James park (one of my all time favourite places in London) We then drank cider in Camden by the Lock and ate Chinese food. Pretty much a perfect Sunday. 

I went to the gym tonight for the first time ever, just for a free trial but I'm planning on joining next week. We did a spin class... oh my it was hard! Especially as I haven't worked out for a while. I've been really lazy and just eating everything. Gym is needed!

Such a cute post, very "life-y" (think I just made that word up!) ... All of your photos have such a homely British feel to them, I love them.

I'm completely the same at the moment with eating everything! The gym has been abandoned for 3 months-ish woops :-)
