So I had a pretty busy week last week so I thought I would do a post walking you through my typical week, well this would be a typical week when I'm not on a shoot - when I'm in development stage, taking meetings, and doing other bits and bobs (the biggest difference between I actually have time to cook!) Apologies for the dodgy pictures, I wasn't taking my camera out with me on most days and I usually only had 30 seconds to try and take a quick snap!
Had a meeting/brainstorming session at the Ace Hotel, Shoreditch with a director I work with. This is a really good place for meetings, though can get pretty busy at times so grab a seat early! It is also a little like an Apple showroom - I have never seen so many MacBook Pro's in my life! (Jeans from New Look)
Friday night's dinner. I'm obsessed with salmon, if I could eat it three times a day I would: smoked salmon scrambled eggs for breakfast, salmon salad for lunch and a big fat salmon fillet for dinner - heaven!
Pretty chilled out day today spent tidying and reorganising my room. As you can tell from my last blog post I'm a book addict and currently have two bookshelves in my room (thinking of doing a book shelf tour..?) and I'm always re-ordering them - top shelf is dedicated to the Kay Scarpetta series from one of my favourite authors, Patricia Cornwell.
Tried out a new pancake recipe and they turned out pretty awesomely light and fluffy! Definitely gonna try and do some recipe posts because as you can see, I love to cook! Later on Sunday I had a meeting with a really great young female director who I'm planning on working with.
Working on budgets on a Sunday night - aww yeah! And I'm clearly very serious about hydration.
Today I had a couple meetings - one a very exciting one at the cinema where the film I'm a producer on is being premiered in November (find out more here). Tried to take a quick cinema selfie but alas the lighting was not on my side (Jeans and boots-New Look, T shirt-Primark, cardigan-H&M, sunglasses-freebie with Tatler magazine!)
Another day another meeting. This one was in Soho where a lot of film stuff happens - so eloquently put. (Nail polish-Barry M Raspberry, Ring-Primark, Notebook-Tiger)
After my meeting I met a director friend for dinner at Mele e Pere, a lovely Italian restaurant in Soho. I obviously scoffed the lot before I remembered I should have taken a photograph. But instead I do have a classy toilet selfie. (Dress, bag, scarf-Primark, Boots-New Look)
Today was a quieter day working from home. I was meant to go to a film event in the evening but the day before I got caught in the random freak hurricane so was feeling ever so slightly under the weather. So instead I baked a peach cobbler, had a raspberry Crabbies and caught up on Homeland.
Thursday I went to a film screening in Soho for a super cool young director who made a really cool short that was partly in English, partly in Portuguese. There was also a free bar which, ya know, is always welcomed. (Lipstick-e.l.f Matte lip colour in Rich Red)
Had a meeting today in my house which was pretty cool - the cool part being no public transport of course. Worked on a project I'm trying to develop with another producer so lots of figures and budgets! Dinner was a turkey loin wrapped in bacon, sweet potato mash and veg. And wine. Always wine.
Another pretty chilled one on Saturday - lie in, fry up, and went for the crispest autumnal walk. The evening was spent watching X Factor which I haven't done for years but for some reason it's becoming my Saturday ritual. That and snacks and nail painting. (Polish-e.l.f in shade desert haze)
Sunday I got my head shots done, and I hate having my picture taken so it was pretty excruciating! well let me quantify that, I don't mind posing for casj pictures where I'm smiling with friends or what have you, but as soon as I hear the words "hey just relax and be natural" I turn into the wooden man. We had a super awesome photographer though so I can't wait to see them when they're ready!
That pretty much rounds up my week! What did you guys get up to this week? I love being nosy at getting a look at what other people's daily lives look like to fill me in!
