One Lovely Day

lovelydayugclaire
Here is one of those photos-of-my-day posts which I must get into the habit of doing more. Monday was a gorgeously sunny bank holiday which means a day off! My first port of call was for a haircut at Umberto Giannini (Selfridges, Birmingham). Claire has been my stylist for 4+ years and she's awesome. That day we spent a lot of time laughing at this Bad Hair book they had in the salon.

Afterwards, my little sister and I stopped for Sushi. Yo Sushi isn't the most amazing Sushi but....it does the job especially on a Blue Monday. I love Sashimi, Salmon and avocado handrolls but one of my favourites is the Tamago nigiri which is the sweet egg sushi. After we had our fill, my sis and I shopped  and then stopped at Yorks Bakery for a tea and cake break. I went for green tea naturally.

My sis and I wondered around the city taking plenty of random snaps in the sunshine. Of course I managed to take advantage of the quieter streets and got a few photos for my next post...here is a sneak peek!

The day ended with a nostalgic Twister ice cream on the walk home from the train station and attempting to juggle my ice cream when I took the photos of the pink blossom above. It was such a lovely day and I'm already looking forward to the next bank holiday...fingers crossed it will be just as sunny!
