daisybutter - UK Style Blog: week in photos, baftas, london, afternoon tea

Went to some events, ate a lot of food, made teriyaki udon noodles at home, met and chatted to a crazy amount of bloggers (and took photos in posh toilets with Kim and Steph!), watched people setting up for the BAFTAs tonight, and was denied cakes and scone at TOWIB. And I went to Uni a lot and stayed up 'til the twilight hours with media law reading.

This week has been pretty ridiculous. I haven't had much time to myself, and I wouldn't say this week's photos are representative of my lifestyle at all, aside from eating stupid amounts of food all the time out of boredom. Needless to say, I'm more than ready for a duvet day (kind of) today and some general chilling out, with some Dancing on Ice thrown in tonight for good measure! What can I say? I'm secretly not 20 at all...

In other news, I'm at the "Y's" of my alphabetical playlist after embarking on a personal challenge to sift through my music. I still have a good 400 songs to get through, because I listen to a lot of Chinese, Korean and Japanese music, which haven't come up in my playlist so far! While we're on the topic, so excited for Big Bang to announce their 'Alive' World Tour 2012 dates and locations, got my fingers crossed for something reasonably priced in London! Apparently I hadn't listened to some albums since 2009, and some didn't even have a playcount! It's been a learning curve to say the least, and I've rediscovered some old favourites! Do you listen to old music frequently, or are you a play-once-and-move-on type of person?

I've also officially started at the internship I was interviewed for a few weeks ago! I'm doing some in-house PR and editorial for a luxury jewellery company in London. I'm currently on a one day a week basis, and moving on to a six-month contract when I graduate which is sweet! Going to be a busy few weeks for me with keeping up with Uni, LFW next week, helping my Mama at HyperJapan in London the week after, and finally going home the week after that for my birthday. Can't wait! 


- this week in five:
  • meeting swarms of bloggers who I've been 'following' for ages
  • eating out more than my pursestrings could manage
  • venturing into the world of Kiehl's skincare and thus changing my life
  • eating myself into a sugar coma courtesy of MUA Cosmetics and Love Hearts - thank you so much!
  • taking my first baby steps on my dream career ladder

    Sad I didn't get a chance to say hello yesterday, saw you very briefly (your hair looked lovely) but it was so crowded!! Regarding albums I currently can't get enough of listening to the 'fearless' album on repeat on my long commute! Never gets old!

  11. Ooh that food looks so good!

    Congrats on the internship, it sounds brilliant!

    I find it really hard sometimes to keep up with music. I will forget all about albums that I love and not listen to them for ages, until I hear a song and think 'Why am I not listening to this all the time?!' Haha.

  13. I was in Covent Garden this morning where they were setting up, and I swear about 5 harassed PR's, interns and coordinators on their Blackberrys and shouting into my headsets ran into me!

  16. I've literally had Damien Rice and Taylor Swift on repeat for the past month haha, I'm sure you approve. Bit awkward when I go out though and I'm like what is this song and everyone's like how do you not know it?!
    Congratulations on the internship; you are definitely one of those people who deserve it!! Have fun at LFW x

  17. So happy for you re the Internship and the 6month contract, couldn't happen to a more deserving person!
    I definitely go back to old albums, because I keep all my music on an external hard drive so once a month or so I rotate things around! Some of my music was back when I was 17 or 18 and used napster to download individual songs.... xx

  31. Eee thank you gorgeous! Feels like one weight's been lifted on my shoulders, only to be replaced with small niggling worries about balancing it all! Aw that's a good idea haha, I'd never rotate my music if I did that though... I'm about... 7/8-ths through my library atm, nice 'n precise ;) xxxx

  46. I'm hoping for a chance to see Big Bang too! Though I don't speak a word of Korean so it could be interesting... I'll probably still whoop at everything they say in between songs like a total dork ^^ If 2NE1 came to London I have a feeling I'd keel over!
    I think it was a really clever collaboration for MUA to do, they deserve kudos and a plate of muffins for that one, the nail polishes look SO cute!

  47. I LOVE meeting up with other bloggers, I'm overdue a blog meetup!
