The Weekender Series – 2021 Films, Outfits & New Places

In addition to blog more I’ve introduced a new series titled ‘The Weekender’. I’ll include visuals of what I wore, views, location and food. I’ve introduced a new series titled ‘The Weekender’. I’ll compile images from both the weekday and weekend. It’s a vlog but written, titled, the weekender.

Join me and J as we try out a new spot in the Parkhurst area, watch new films, check out the new Starbucks store and what I wore while we were out and about.

A Friday spent doing work. Nothing else. J and I went to our current go-to spot to get work done in Rosebank which is Vidae Café (also, not a first time on the series). We also did a run to check out some stores and what they have going on especially since the season will be changing pretty soon. Also, how cute is the mini bag from H&M?

Okay, a huge shoutout to a new spot for some good food and most probably the best cappuccino we’ve had (yes, the best!). Coppa is a new restaurant around the Parkhurst area and since we’ve been trying out new places it was a great start to our day. The food was so good and so light and refreshing. J and I both had breakfast meals that we both enjoyed so much. I had a salmon and avocado on toast with cream and J had an omelette which had peppers, mushroom and cheese with a slice of toast on the side. Since we were around the Parkhurst area which if you didn’t know has shops and places to check out and we did exactly did. A few photo snaps around the area and off to Monte Casino we went. We watched Escape Room 2 – Tournament of Champions which is centered around six people who unwittingly find themselves locked in another series of escape rooms, slowly uncovering what they have in common to survive and discovering they’ve all played the game before.

My favourite day as I always say. J and I headed out to watch Candyman which if you haven’t, go give it a try. If you’re not sure what it may be about it’s about a decade after the last of the Cabrini towers were torn down, a guy named Anthony and his partner move into a loft in the now gentrified Cabrini. A chance encounter with an old-timer exposes Anthony to the true story behind Candyman. Anxious to use these macabre details in his studio as fresh grist for paintings, he unknowingly opens a door to a complex past that unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifying wave of violence. I love that it was directed by a black woman and it’s a leading black cast so I highly recommend. We later headed to Parkhurst and checked out the new Starbucks store. We ended our day with supper at Piza Vino.

Monday was a busy-not-busy day. An early start to the day and getting an important errand done, to the day ending slow with work and a early in bed kinda day.
