The Sunday Post #44

I’m not sure how I’ve survived this week.

In a handful of hours, my world just flipped and it’s somehow on the mend.

I feel emotionally and mentally drained so I’ve had a bit of a chilled weekend in order to recharge my batteries and start fresh tomorrow.

Celebrate Your Success

Last week, I saw a tweet on my timeline from a blogger called Holly and what she said had really struck a cord with me.

Struggling to feel like you’re not “successful enough?”
Pause and reflect on everything you’ve achieved so far.
Be proud of yourself.

I feel like unless an achievement is celebrated in a big manner, then it’s forgotten about and it’s not portrayed as success but in reality, it is.

Even the small things should be celebrated.

Hydrate Your Skin This Autumn

The colder days are here and that can only mean one thing: keeping your skin hydrated.

I used to use the Johnson’s 24 Hour Day Cream on a daily basis, but for some silly unknown reason, I can’t find it in any of my regular shops and well, that’s no fun.

I asked on Twitter a while ago about which day cream I should try out and a lot of you said the Garnier 24 Hour Hydrating Day Cream is worth it.

The Perfect Autumnal Candle

Autumn is officially here.

Therefore, it’s perfectly acceptable to light all the Autumnal candles.

I dragged the Mr to the mothership that is HomeSense in Aintree a few weeks ago as I was trying to hunt down the perfect Autumn candle and I think I’ve found it.

I’m not a big fan of cinnamon, apple or pumpkin scents at all.

I’m much more of a citrus fruit kinda gal.

The Sunday Post #42

October, slow down babe.

This week has been a lot better in terms of not feeling like utter crap every single day. I’m quickly getting myself into a routine now that I’m in between jobs and to be honest, it isn’t that bad as I have 9-2 looking for jobs, applying, taking phone calls etc and then 2-5, I have time to work on my blog, read books, catch up with family, do a driving lesson and then in the evening, I look at any emails which may have come through in the past few hours before spending time with the Mr.

Nice chunky, accidentalΒ intro for you there.

Your neighbour told you that she didn’t want your six-month-old daughter at the dinner party. Nothing personal, she just couldn’t stand her crying. Your husband said it would be fine. After all, you only live next door. You’ll have the baby monitor and you’ll take it in turns to go back every half hour. Your daughter was sleeping when you checked on her last. But now, as you race up the stairs in your deathly quiet house, your worst fears are realized. She’s gone. You’ve never had to call the police before. But now they’re in your home, and who knows what they’ll find there.
