When Life Becomes Stressful......

Instagram diary blog post

........

It's been a long time since I've last blogged - a whole month! I've never been away from my blog for that length of time before, but sometimes life just gets in the way. I struggled to be away from the blog for so long and I've felt really unhappy over the last few weeks. But now that I actually have the time, I'm lost for words. I've tried to write at least a dozen different posts at this stage ranging from beauty to fashion, to lifestyle, but I decided to strip it back and just have a little chat. It's been a stressful few weeks but there has been a few little things perking me up and I thought I'd share them to get my blogging juices flowing once again......

"You need to let the little things that would ordinarily bore you suddenly thrill you." - Andy Warhol


1. Netflix Marathons: Well, I wouldn't call them marathons as of late, but you gotta have a study break every now and then! And I don't think anyone would disagree that an hour of Netflix can really do the world of good. Okay, exercise or fresh air or reading a book would probably be better, but everyone has to have their Netflix fix ;-) Recently, I've been loving 'How To Get Away With Murder' and 'Revenge'. I'm looking forward to just chilling this week and watching episode after episode!

2. A New Phone: I upgraded my old iPhone to the rose gold iPhone 6! I couldn't get the photo of it into the collage because I took it on my other phone and then lost it when I reset the phone *oops* But you can see it over on my Instagram and as you can probably tell I'm in rose gold heaven. At this stage my room is decked out in copper and rose gold stuff, so why not complete the collection with my phone *wink wink* But other than the look of it, it's a whole lot better than my other one and the camera quality is insane - I hardly ever take Instagram photos with my camera now!

3. A New Lipstick: And the last thing that's been getting me through my exams is buying a new lipstick. My goal for this year was to save more and I'm happy to say I've been sticking to it. I haven't bought anything since the Christmas sales! Cliona: 1 - Shops: 0
But to celebrate the end of my mocks, I'll be treating myself to a new lipstick. I ran a poll on Twitter as I couldn't decide for myself ;-) Charlotte Tilbury got the highest amount of votes so I'll be headed to her counter on Saturday *insert all of the excited emojis*

My plans for my week off include lots of relaxing and taking care of myself. I've been feeling quite exhausted and run down, and my sinusitis has been flaring up again. So I'm taking it as a sign that I need to rest and chill out. I've lots of blogging planned too so stay tuned......

There'll be a new outfit post up on Friday but for now, have a catch-up with my latest outfit:  A New Cosy Coat!

What have you been up to lately?

Love,
