Is it Monday yet…?












Lipton Ice Tea

Are you one of those people who starts to get a dull niggle on a Sunday night, as you feel Monday looming? A sense of pending doom creeping around the corner, meaning you stop relaxing and immediately feel your brain start ticking over your To Do list in your head… ending your weekend with a bang and mentally catapulting you into the office, even though it’s STILL SUNDAY?

Lipton Ice Tea have decided to nip this in the bud and help us reclaim our Monday mornings… and I love their attitude. They were behind a series of events which took place to inspire us to extend our weekends, shake off the Monday blues and embrace the new week with colour, light, verve and pizazz… And it is down to them that I found myself awake at 4:30am last Monday, en route to Peckham…

At 5am I arrived at the Bussey Building, with my iPhone, juice pack and camera, ready to take part in the Golden Hour Photography session, led by some top London instagrammers and brought to life by some mesmerizing characters…

It was dark when I arrived, but as time ticked on, the sun started to rise and everyone took their turn at capturing the beautiful London skyline which appeared like magic, through the London haze….

Cameras ranged from phones to mahoosive proper pro ones, with everyone’s objective being the same – to capture the stunning sunrise in a way that was authentic to them… and to bask in the light of the early morning sun…

Breakfast was served by way of gooey eggs, delicious quinoa salad and refreshing Lipton Ice Tea, while uplifting beats and hula hoopers provided an almost ethereal backdrop to the morning…

By the time the event was over it had just turned 8am, so there was still time for a coffee and a stroll in the sunshine before Monday had even properly begun.

And when I made it home to my desk, I was refreshed, energised and excited to see what the day would bring… Thank you Lipton Ice Tea, for inspiring me to see my city in a whole new light…

I’ll never view Monday mornings in the same way again.

  3. Love this! Reminds me of my recent holiday to Cappadocia where each day required waking up at 3.30am for sunrise.
    I blogged about it at AmazingFoodAndTravel.com

  4. I used to hate Sundays when I was in school because it meant I had to get up early the next day. BUT! The event looks like so much fun I want to participate in one too! Thanks a lot for sharing.
