Happy Friday friends and welcome to another instalment of The Friday Edit blog Series. This week was a challenging one, I struggled with food – for the love of God I CANNOT stop eating desserts – and with the weather as it is getting chillier day by day. On top of everything, I lost my writer’s mojo (thus, the absence of posting much this week on the Blog) and it really got me down thinking I am not doing my job properly. My ultimate goal for Natbee’s is to post 4 times per week including the contributor’s posts. I like having a fresh, new post for everyone to read early in the morning and I make sure that our content is not outdated and that we keep up with the seasons. But this week I just lost it and I felt so much guilt. There is loads of admin stuff going on in the background but I try not to use this as my excuse. So here’s to hoping that next week will be a batter one 🙂
Here are three things that made this week exciting:
ONE// Walking down the beach with Cruz on Wednesday! As a Greek, being close to the sea is my ultimate pleasure and something I am always looking for! I love listening to the sound of the waves and smelling the fresh breeze. It’s not often that I visit Aberdeen beach these days, by the time I finish work it is already dark so I prefer to walk Cruz around the neighbourhood instead of walking the 2 miles route to the beach. So on Wednesday, thermos in hand and camera equiped we head to the beach and it was just lovely. Cruzy played with the stones and digged holes in the sand and then we met another Jack Russell and they started running up and down chasing each other. It was so fun to watch and definitely made me smile way too many times 🙂
TWO// Visiting Marks and Spencer at St. Nicholas centre to try on the new Holly Willoughby clothing collection! I love M&S, from grocery shopping to clothing, this is one of my favourite places to shop, so you can imagine how happy I was when they invited me to come in store and have a look at the collection. I tried on 3 different outfits and was very tempted to get more than one outfits back home with me but eventually I resolved and got this dress! You can have a look at my Instagram Stories for more if you like!
THREE// Heather’s article, 20 Things to Do in Aberdeen on a Weekend Break put a big smile on my face! In case you didn’t see it on my Instagram, Heather on her Travels is a Bristol blogger that visited Aberdeen some weeks ago and she kindly asked me if I could show her around my city so we spent the day together taking pictures of all the important monuments and sightseeing spots of Aberdeen city. Heather was here as part of a press trip and she tried to take in as much as possible in order to write a Travel Guide with her top tips of Aberdeen city. If you are visiting Aberdeen anytime soon then have a look at her article, she has some very useful images and recommendations.
And that is all from me now! I am going to wear my new M&S dress and go meet my friend for a coffee.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
