In case you hadn’t noticed I’m on a bit of a food instagramming frenzy these days. And lets not forget all the coffee – see above evidence. I love cooking [and eating] and it’s good practice for my  [non iPhone] food photography & styling skills. Maybe I should rename ‘weekend in photos’ to ‘what I ate/drank this weekend’.

By the way, went to C Thai this weekend after seeing a great review on Shut up and Eat. It’s not always easy to find a BYOW restaurant that is vegetarian friendly [and affordable] and C Thai did not disappoint. The service was good and friendly, the food was delicious and light, the prices were very reasonable and to top it all off, you can bring your own wine. I will be back.

WOW. I had such a great, full weekend. I didn’t even mind that I barely had time to relax. There will be other weekends for that, this week was for staying up late, listening to loud music, laughing till I cried with good friends and learning some great food photography & styling tips from Béa. You can expect an increase in food photos in the future. I’m even more obsessed now. Who knew that was possible?

We had a unseasonably hot late summer weekend. Despite the lack of proper sleep that the high temperatures and humidity cause, I’m enjoying these few extra days of summer. Being in an air conditioned office far from any natural light mon-fri really makes you appreciate the heat and sunshine. Now if only the weekends were a few days longer…
