Weekly Roundup October 2020 #2

So its that time of the week again where I face an empty page with the curser (is that what its called?) blinking at me. It’s like a contest of who will be the first one to talk and obviously it will be me, so I guess I win!.. or lose, depending on which way you’re looking at it.

This week has been a bit of a blur however I remember that it started off pretty shitty. I was feeling very overwhelmed and as if nothing was going my way, if you remember the last two weeks posts I haven’t been feeling very good and the mood followed into this week. I had planned to have Monday off to spend with my boyfriend but work had forgot to take me off the rota so I had to work. I don’t really remember the rest of the week, most days just end up getting mushed together. However today (well yesterday to you) I have been productive, got all my course work done in the morning, got two loads of washing done, changed my bed sheets, showered, dressed and did my hair and makeup. I seem to forget to give myself a rest and then wonder why I feel so tired all the time. This evening (yesterday evening) I have my counselling course zoom class from 5.30pm – 8.30pm so I’ll probably rest after 9pm tonight.

I’ve gotten a little lost on my photo challenge on insta and instead of trying to back track if I’ve missed any days I’m just going to start from fresh today and continue into November if needs be.

Just a quick disclaimer that I am not showing all of these products as 100% cruelty free. At time of buying these products I thought they were 100% cruelty free. I plan on using up the products that are owned by brands with a grey area and plan not buying from them again.

I’m finding this challenge.. well a challenge at the moment. I’m not taking photos that I think “Yes! That is a great photo!” So it feels a little meh as I’m not really showing something I am proud of. However I am enjoying sharing my thoughts and being more interactive with you guys!


I hope you have a great week, I have a feeling that things will be looking up.

    1. Thank you so much! This is a lovely comment. I always want to be transparent on my blog, it only felt right to say they weren’t. I also love The Body Shop, they do so many great things that are mostly affordable. Hope you also have a great week x
