Tuesday With Moi

So I’m changing up the TWM format a little bit. I love photographing and writing Tuesday With Moi, but lately, life is getting a little crazy on the posting front.  Gradient is growing and so too are our Artists Unveiled obligations. My personal life has also imploded lately and I have a visa to sort, a brother who is– SURPRISE!– getting married in a few weeks, and a subsequent trip back to The States all planned in the next week. Unfortunately, my growing obligations and commitment to my work and my friends means that this wonderful passion project needs some restructuring, so from now on, I will be posting Tuesday With Moi and Tuesday With Vous posts on the weekend.  Hopefully this will be better for me, but also for my contributors.

So Tuesday is now on a Saturday/Sunday. Let’s do this!!

Tuesday, June 10, 2014

Tuesday was a loony-tunes day, so most of these photos were taken a little after the hour. I’m a cheat sometimes. But this is my blog so I can do what I want.


I arrived back from a trip to Switzerland (which you can see photos of here, here, and here) late the previous evening and was tired yet happy to be back home. David was in China at the same time, so Le Chat was extra excited to have me back!  Our morning began with Perk & Pearl coffee and lots of kitten snuggles. I’m always a little fuzzy until the coffee & kitten quota has been met.  <3

TWM.June10.14.9After a few days away, I felt like the flat needed a good airing.  So I lit a Temple Spa mini candle. So fresh and so clean clean!

TWM.June10.14.10Ten o’clock!  Time to get out of my Kimono and into my work clothes.

TWM.June10.14.11Summer is lovely.  When the sun is shining, I mean.  the lavender is beginning to mature and it’s about to get reaaaal good out there!

TWM.June10.14.12I bought some Swiss chocolates whilst visiting my friend in Rapperswil last week. I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, so I brought them to the office so my officemates could eat them. Aaaaand I ate one too. It was delicious!

TWM.June10.14.13On my way to lunch I stumbled upon some cherries. But they weren’t local so I didn’t buy them. I’m holding out for some good local cherries!

TWM.June10.14.14My real lunch was from Gusta.  It’s a local newbie and it is delicious.

TWM.June10.14.16Office. Blah blah blah blah blahhh.

TWM.June10.14.17And then I Skyped with my brother and he was like, “I’m getting married in Minnesota in three weeks! Please come for the wedding!” and I was like, “Oh my gosh, I just broke out into full-body hives and my visa is up in three weeks and I can’t really afford it and ohmygosssssh.”

But obviously I was like, “I am your sister and I will do everything I can to be there.”

Aaaaand fingers crossed it all works out. (Does anyone know anything about the process of applying for residency here in the UK?)

TWM.June10.14.18After my conversation with my brother, I was super stressed.  So I went home and went for a run. Because I’m one of those assholes now and I go for a run when I’m stressed.

TWM.June10.14.19After my run, I had to quickly get changed so I could…

TWM.June10.14.20Hang out with these two!! Yup, I met with Liam and Ed so we could head to The Grey Lady and see my girl Hannah of Kudos fame serenade us with some songs.


She’s the lead singer of the band, which is called When Colours Collide. Isn’t she dreamy?!

TWM.June10.14.22After Hannah’s band finished, a local group called Mercia performed. They were pretty badass. Ed was transfixed…

TWM.June10.14.23After all the music ended, we headed home. My gentlemen friends were perfect gentlemen and they walked me to my door.  Thanks, Nick & Co! 

Since Tuesday, David has gotten back and things have gotten even crazier! But things are on the right track now… I think.  #PleasePray
