Yoga in the Park

Hi guys! What did you guys do this lovely sunny weekend? Me, Tom and Yoko went to London Fields to do some yoga this morning. Yes, yoga in the park! It was such a great way to start a lovely Sunday morning and also it felt so relaxing being outside in the sun! Yoko and Tom had done some yoga before but I am an absolute beginner and I wasn't quite sure if I'd enjoy it at the beginning. Because I am probably the most inflexible person in the world! I can't even touch my toes. (Can you?)

Anyway, the tutor, Pam was such a friendly and lovely lady and she made it very easy for me whilst the other guys were trying some advanced positions like headstand! (My jaw dropped when I saw one of the ladies doing it so easily right next to me!)

Here is Yoko doing it so well. 

This is me trying to relax....

This is me doing my very best to stretch my legs! 

I had enough yoga today. I am going home.

Cheeky Rioters

Hi people, hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. I am sure no one has forgotten about the riots which happened about a month ago. What happened was terrible and unforgivable. As a funny coincidence, shortly before everything happened I made little brooches of a boy and girl wearing balaclavas as a joke which consequently made people think of the rioters. I gave them to my sister-in-law as part of her birthday present and thankfully she liked it. She has told me that she has been getting some good response! So, this weekend I had another go at making more cheeky rioters...

These are the boy and girl in a balaclava that I made as a joke for her! 

Here are the new ones I made today... Cheeky rioters.

They are very very cheeky. 

People got mad at them and made them clear up! 

All the London rioters should have been given a broom to clean up the mess they made!

Have a great and safe week everyone! Gumi x

Broadway Market

Hello guys! Hope you are having a lovely and sunny weekend! Since the recent weather has been so miserable I get so excited just to wake up to a sunny day in the morning lately! (I almost forgot what a sunny day felt like.) To make the most of the lovely Saturday yesterday, me and my friend Yoko went out to one of my favourite markets in London, Broadway market which is now only a 10 min bus ride from our new home (Yay!). Unlike the other local markets, this is definitely not the cheap one but what is great about this market is that you can shop for something special and quality like super stylish handmade lingerie! (Expensive but a great idea for a gift!) Also it's packed with full of good looking boys and girls which is always a good thing. Yes.

As we are browsing the market this one caught my attention. It's a lovely cake stall run by a friendly Japanese lady, Tamayo (here is her blog) who is a full time mother of two during the weekdays but she runs this lovely stall with full of AMAZING cakes!

Check out these ones! Aren't they SO pretty?? 

Loving the birds! All the cakes look delish! 

Something else which caught my attention was these adorable little brothers selling apples in the park! Everyone was so curious what these cute little boys were up to, (good tactic for a business!) and they were actually selling well! By the way, can you spot a man lying on the grass at the back? That's their dad keeping an eye on them (or shall I say "supervising" them?!)

As you might know we recently bought a flat and it's still far from how we want it to look like. I will be posting some more pics as it progresses so hope you stay tuned! In the meantime this is a view of a stunning sunset the other day from a kitchen window in our flat. We were all lost for words....

Have a great week ahead everyone! Gumi x
