Eggs, shoes and a baby shower // 6 January Faves

New year 2016 glasses
Happy New Year! 

Welcome to Warsaw’s World in 2016 – I’ve actually been writing on here since 2012, so at some point this year I’ll be celebrating a full four years of posts on such a varied range of topics. However with that said, it’s that time of the month again, so here’s the January faves:

1/ Poached eggs; an absolute fave this month, I’ve been popping these on top of everything for a little protein boost! Below are a few photos of my favourite recipes: sweet potato and kale hash, which did originate with a fried egg but I poached mine instead; pesto courgetti with bacon and egg and finally the classic avocado on toast with a little egg popped on the top – the perfect post morning run breakfast.

2/ Taking my own advice; normally something I’m rubbish at, BUT after posting about keeping new year’s resolutions/goals/plans I thought I better do as I said. Luckily, I received a late secret santa present from my lovely friend Tasha, who knows me so well and bought me London Underground tupperware from Paperchase; it’s really been lifting my spirits when packing salads and sandwiches for lunch. In typical Paperchase loving style, I invested in a lovely little diary and water bottle to keep me on track at work and with drinking that water – it’s working an absolute treat šŸ˜‰ How’s the new year treating you and your goals?

3/ Lumiere London; the city was lit up beautifully this month with lights all over the city. Here are a couple of posts that I did with photos from a number of different London locations.

4/ The V&A Museum – Shoes; pleasure & pain. Having found out that this exhibition was ending this month I headed across London to check out this fantastic display of shoes. As I visited at 3pm on a Saturday, the exhibition was very busy, a little too crowded for me and there were queues of people looking through the display windows.

Despite the hustle and bustle, the different sections showcased shoes through ages in a number of different contexts; transformation, status, seduction, creation and obsession. With over 200 pairs of shoes, some dazzled, some told stories of pain and some even dated back to Egyptian times. If you consider traditional stories such as Cinderella & The Wizard of Oz – shoes really do play a huge part in the transformation of the wearer, and today is not at all different in many ways.

5/ Rugby; the 6 Nations kicks off this month and as I’ll be working on the social media side of things through work, I headed to Twickenham to view an open training session last Friday. Look out for a few photos I took during the session on the blog this week and I’ll be tweeting throughout the 6 Nations – C’mon England #carrythemhome.

6/ Babies; my best friend of over 21 years is due in the next three weeks. We had a lovely baby shower over the weekend, guessed the weight, gave gifts and had an incredible cake made by a friend of Kirsty’s. Now we’re just playing the waiting game for the newest member of the girl gang!
