Well it’s the end of another week already, so it’s time for this weeks’ Sunday Weekly Top 5 post! I’ve been really busy working extra shifts this week, which has actually been great as I feel completely settled in with my new job now 🙂
I had a pretty good week up until yesterday. I was supposed to be going to an all day and night hen party, but came down with terrible anxiety and didn’t / couldn’t go. My anxiety creeps up on my like a thief in the night, I’ll be fine for ages then all of a sudden I’ll just feel terrible. After cancelling on my friend and being eaten up by guilt I ended up sleeping the whole day. I woke up feeling much better but had to just write the day off in the end, which was a shame.
Onwards and upwards anyway hey! Here’s this weeks top five –
Ghost Adventures – Ghost Adventures is actually a long time favourite of mine. My husband records them and we seem to be watching an episode pretty much every night now. If you haven’t heard of Ghost Adventures, it’s basically like a modern day, real life Ghostbusters! The team; Zak, Aaron and Nick take their high tech equipment to haunted locations and try to catch ghosts on camera or voice recorder. I was actually a bit spooked by this when I first started watching it, but I think I’m used to it now!
Freya Starlet Vertical Seam Bra in Electric Blue – (£36.00) You really can’t beat new undies to make you feel good! The Freya Starlet Vertical Seam Bra is a first for me from Freya and it’s just gorgeous! It has electric blue coloured sheer cups with a geometric lace pattern and contrasting polka dot bows to complete the look. I love that it’s so bright and pretty, and it fits like a dream. I just need the undercrackers to match now! 😀
6 Vitamin Shot Drink – (£24.99 for 12) I’m quite partial to the odd energy drink, so it’s great to come across one that’s actually been crated by expert nutritionists. 6vitaminshot is described as your one stop vitamin energy shot, giving you your recommended vitamin allowance as well as much more. The precise mix of ingredients has been developed by expert nutritionists to offer six key benefits;
- Supporting energy release
- Supporting concentration
- Reduction of tiredness and fatigue
- Supporting the immune system
- Mental function and performance
- Sugar free
Malin + Goetz Lip Moisturiser (£10.00) – I’ve tried countless lip balms in my time, and this is officially the best I’ve found so far. This lip moisturizer is a hydrating gel which provides lips with daily protection helping to prevent dryness and chapped lips, as well as acting as a treatment to restore and replenish already dry lips. Unlike other oils and balms, this Lip moisturiser contains absorbent fatty acids which nourish upon impact whilst providing a continual layer of hydrating protection throughout the day. If you have dry lips, I really can’t recommend this enough.
And lastly, this week’s go-to eyeliner of choice has been Empire by Urban Decay. Empire is a gorgeous deep aubergine shade with a metallic finish. I usually go for blue shades over purples but fancied a change and popped this little beauty in my makeup bag. I’ve been using it every day and I think I’ve found a new love for purple eyeliners! Please let me know if you have any other brighter purple shades you can recommend to me as I’d love to get some more.
In case you missed it –
This week’s most popular blog post has definitely been Eight Accessory Ideas To Improve Your Blog Photographs where I’ve included a few ideas to inspire if you’re looking to up your photography game. Take a look and let me know what you think!
Other things worth mentioning –
I want to give massive thanks to Charlotte from F and R Designs for making my awesome new media kit! I actually never thought I needed a media kit up until recently, but over the last few months I’ve had a few requests from PR’s and companies for me to send my kit over so I thought it would be a good idea to get one done. If you’re thinking of getting a media kit made, I’d highly recommend Charlotte, apart from being lovely, she’s very talented and will listen to you to achieve what you’re looking for. Her Media Kit design services are currently on offer for £25 until the end of the month.
And lastly, it seems there’s been quite a lot of ‘blogging issues’ posts going around lately, from blogger burnout, to ‘we’re not appreciated’ type posts and discussing the difficulties blogger face (Which I completely agree with by the way) This is why I wanted to mention Jemma from Dorkface, I’ve recently discovered her blog, which is a mixture of beauty, lifestyle and kawaii cuteness! And I especially love her 10 Favourite Things About Blogging post, which focussed on the positive aspects of blogging. It’s always great to remind yourself why you blog, and what you enjoy about it.
I hope you enjoyed my post xxx
