10 things that have happened recently

Saturday, June 16, 2018

Sorry to toot my own horn, but I can't believe I took this picture on a phone. It's so good! 

1.My mum celebrated her birthday on Thursday so we went shopping. It was a lovely day, albeit a bit windy, and I managed to pick up a few new pieces for my wardrobe.

2.I ordered four things from the H&M website and they all fit me? I am still in shock. I rarely have that much luck with ordering clothes online, especially from a shop that has no consistency in their sizing whatsoever. Proper chuffed. Plus, all the clothes look good and don't make me look like a  bloated potato!

3.June's Birchbox arrived. Got a nice bottle of smoothing balm for my hair and a gorgeously soft eyeshadow, among other things. The box itself is a blue and white floral tin and it is stunning.

4.My step-dad bought me a label maker (half price in Tesco!!!) and it is now the greatest thing I own. I have labelled all the boxes under my bed and my IKEA Alex drawers. Wondering how many things I can slap a label on before it gets weird and/or annoying.

5.I've started using my Bobble bottle more often in an effort to cut down the amount of plastic bottled water I drink.

6.I'm pretty sure I've nailed my skincare routine. The products I'm using all seem to work really well together and don't irritate my skin. I still get the odd spot or two, but I think that's down to my crap diet, heh. At the moment I'm especially loving the Aloe Herbs and Rosewater spray from Mario Badescu, the Purete Thermale One Step Cleansing Micellar Water from Vichy, and the Vitalizing Eye Serum by NZ based brand Platone that I picked up from TK Maxx and I can't find anywhere on the internet, d'oh. It has vitamin C and collagen in it and feels very refreshing around the eyes.

7.I started taking turmeric capsules the other day hoping it will help with my thyroid. Not sure if that's a good idea while I'm already taking thyroid meds but whatever. I see a doctor next week so I'll find out then if I'm making the problem worse or not. 😅

8.I've become obsessed with ralphthemoviemaker and YourMovieSucksDOTorg. I love watching people rip bad movies to shreds but are funny about it. They're both clearly very passionate about film which makes it even more interesting and hilarious to watch.

9.My wildflowers started budding and they look so promising! Looking forward to seeing what they look like in a month's time, see if they start flowering and coaxing the bees in.

10.I read that HBO have ordered a pilot for a Game of Thrones prequel about the Age of Heroes and I am buzzing with excitement. Game of Thrones is mah life.

Hope you have a great weekend.
