Weekly round-up #3


Hello guys,

I hope you've had a lovely weekend !

I did something a little scary yesterday. I filmed, edited and uploaded a beauty tutorial. I know, I know. It's my everyday make-up look, using all cruelty-free brands (because animal testing sucks). If you'd like to have a nosy at the products, see how I do my make-up, or giggle at all the minor mishaps I have, take a look:


Back to the weekly round-up:

WHAT I'VE BEEN LISTENING TO:

  • Dolly Alderton's Love Stories podcast. Author Dolly Alderton chats to guests about their defining relationships: heartbreak, passion, and everlasting love. Earlier this week, I listened to her interview with the epic Emma Freud. As her partner is Richard Curtis, she has plenty of brilliant stories to share. 
  • Paris Summer by The Last Shadow Puppets (feat Alison Mosshart). I've loved this (cover) song for years, but I recently rediscovered it after creating a little Paris-themed playlist to get excited for my upcoming trip! Alison Mosshart is such a babe, too. 

WORTH CHECKING OUT:

  • It was #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek, and I was touched and empowered by how many people shared their stories. So, so many of us have mental health issues and I think that being honest and talking about our struggles will make a big difference. Let's normalise the conversation. 
  • The Happy Not Perfect app, made by Poppy Jamie. Apparently, long-term, it'll help hack your brain to combat stress and anxiety. I've also heard it described as 'mindfulness for millennials'. I've been using it for a few days (it only just launched) and I do like it. Especially the bits where you get to write down what's bothering you and digitally burn it.
My local stretch of sand. Perfect for walking barefoot and relaxing. 

WHAT I'M GRATEFUL FOR:

  • Living by the beach, so I can go for sunset strolls with my best friend. 
  • Discovering bullet journalling, because it chills me right out, is a great creative outlet, and helps me organise my life. 
  • Sunny weekends, so I can read my book in the garden and relax (yep, I'm 80 years old).
My half-finished weekly layout. I'll add my to-do list, fun events and keep track of what I'm eating (don't worry, it's not a diet – I'm just trying to eat healthier and get my 5-a-day in!)

Next weekend will be busy, between prepping for Paris and hanging out with Queenie. But I hope I'll get to post! See you soon xxx
