Firstly a little apology as things have been a rather quiet here on Peonies and lilies - for the last month or so I've been struggling to find my place in the blogging world. Combine that with a busy work schedule and a touch of writer's block and before I knew it it'd been 3 weeks since my last blog post. Thankfully the time away seems to have helped and I'm really looking forward to sitting down and writing again. With it being summer there's been quite a lot going on and seeing as lifestyle posts are one my favourites to read I thought it would be nice to share a few updates:
1. In June I had the pleasure of attending not one but 2 beautiful weddings, one for a close friend and another for family. Although they were both very different it was lovely to see how the bride and groom added their own personal touches to such an important day. I loved that one had lots of lovely homemade elements and the other themed like a country fair with some seriously pretty backdrops. Plus not having a holiday yet this year it was great to get out of London and have 2 weekend mini breaks.
2. The London foodie adventure continues and this month we've been rather obsessed with wings. It all started with the delicious Korean wings at Shackfuyu, followed by their sister restaurant Flesh and Buns (blog review coming soon). Since then we've tried the On the bab as well as these amazing American buffulo hot wings from Sticky Wings in Brick lane. Definitely worth a visit if you're ever in the area.
3. With it being summer I've been trying to tone up and in an attempt to work off all the unhealthy treats I've been getting back into running again. I wouldn't say it's an enjoyable hobby as such but you definitely feel a lot better afterwards and nothing beats the satisfaction completing a 10k run.
4. Finally it''s time to start thinking about summer holidays and I would love to hear your recommendations. So far on the list I've got Dubai, LA, Hong Kong and Rome. Plus with having some time off next year I would love to visit to New York and Australia again.
