I can't believe I'm sitting down to write another weekly roundup post again already. Like, bloomin' heck can we just slow down a little?
Pretty please. I really don't like how quick the weeks are going at the minute. I think it's because everything is a little hectic, with a rolling to-do list that never seems to end, a constant battle with keeping my emails under control, and lets not even forget that Christmas prep has now officially begun, too.
One of the things I do like to keep free though, are my evenings. My evenings are my officially designated 'me time'. The few hours of my day where I can do things for me. And it's been really lovely the past few weeks in using my evenings to get to know my new flatmate, too. We've been out for walks, grabbed coffee and taken a tour of the Liverpool Christmas lights...
My new flatmate has been moved in 3 weeks & she's already stopping at anything remotely pretty & asking;— Soph 🌸 (@sophierosie) November 14, 2016
'Do you want to take a photo?' 😂🙈💖
Then, after a day of working from my bed and in my pyjama's on Tuesday, I decided that it was probably time I invested in an actual desk, now that I've created the space for it in my room and everything. However, there's just one problem with this idea..
Considering getting a desk/work space for my room now I work from home a lot.— Soph 🌸 (@sophierosie) November 15, 2016
BUT if I do I wouldn't have the space for mirror selfies 🙄💁🏻🙈
Maybe I'll just keep working from my bed, huh...? I have gotten to like taking outfit photo's in my mirror!
Speaking of my bed, sometimes it's just REALLY hard to leave it in a morning. My bed is so, so comfy, and now the morning's are so dark and cold and wet, it just makes getting up early nearly impossible.
Every morning I set my alarm to give me plenty of time to get ready & every morning I snooze it until I have 15 mins till I need to leave.😴🙈— Soph 🌸 (@sophierosie) November 16, 2016
Then, on Wednesday, my colleague was writing a piece of content on the Oxford Dictionary Word of the Year, and the words that had made the shortlist. It made me so happy to see this (even if I did have to explain it's meaning to her!);
And so has 'Adulting'.— Soph 🌸 (@sophierosie) November 16, 2016
I'm a lot more successful at one of these than the other & I'll give you 2 guesses which one I prefer. 😂🙈🙆🏻
Also, did I mention that my blog turned 2 last week? ;)
Can we also just take a second to talk about the weather this week? We've had snow, like actual snow! I drove out of the car park one morning this week to see the ground covered in the stuff (I was since informed it was just a hell of a lot of hail, but I don't care, I'm pretending it was snow!).
Which was great and everything, but made this even more of a problem...
As always, part of my week this week involved shopping. H&M did have a little bit of a surprise in store for me though when I went to try this jumper on.Forever double checking that the cyclist I've just overtaken is still upright once I've past them 🙈🚴🏻♀️— Soph 🌸 (@sophierosie) November 17, 2016
And also unsurprisingly, my shopping trip did involve pretty new underwear. I discovered the Forever 21 range, and at just £9 for some of their most beautiful and feminine pieces (like this one), I'm literally in love. Totally.
How was your week?
