I started to write a catchy-uppy post the night before. It will show up eventually but in the meantime I read an article about a woman who didn’t wash her mascara off and a surgeon had to REMOVE GLOBS OF MASCARA FROM HER EYEBALLS.Do you ever find that even after washing your face clean (supposedly? allegedly?), you’ll wake up in the morning and find more mascara shadow? I’ve been spending the limited time I have between baby bedtime and mummy bedtime scrubbing my eyelashes clean of all gunk. And then following up with skincare because I’m already standing up, might as well.
I really think I got ’em squeaky clean this time. I know micellar water is super popular for cleansing but have you ever tried olive oil? I get really good results with olive oil on gauze. And I never run out of it. After that I get a warm washcloth and dab. It’s SO relaxing.
Mercury Retrograde has been tough, more so for some than others. This was taken just a few days ago. You know, January.
Gosh! Majorly glad that Mercury has returned to direct. Did you notice how strange things got? For us, it was drivers on the road being erratic. We saw a lot of car accidents happen. Talk about holiday madness! Another thing that happened quite a bit was people complaining about miscommunications. So we just kept things simple and didn’t make any big plans. I’m thinking the local coffee shop here thought they’d just come back after the craziness. In October.
It’s not procrastination when you’re trying to mitigate for a Mercury Retrograde cycle. Speaking of, I came across this song today. It’s so soothing, I love it! It will be on repeat whilst I go DO stuff. What’s the opposite of procrastinate? Activate? Right, I’m off to go activate, starting by visiting the cafe to see if they’re open yet. What are your plans for today?
I love pink. Always have! It’s just such a pretty uplifting colour, don’t you think so? And those YSL bags! Those HEELS!
But I also love all the other colours. All of ’em.
Including all these dancing colours on my ceiling. I came back to my room after a shower to this little light show this morning, excuse my messy hair, but how could I not be in the best mood after this gorgeousness?
I hope you had something happen to you to make you smile this morning! x
if you follow me on Instagram and came here to check out my tutorial video on arm balancing, you have come to the right place.
The power is out at my place, it is that time of year over here. I’m typing this and rushing down to the coffee shop to finish this post.
Okay, not rushing because stairs. It will be ready in a jiffy, in the meantime please chat amongst yourselves. Have you all met?
Update: Ok the stairwell is pitch black with nary a creepy blinking exit sign therefore it is obviously filled with scary monsters that usually hide under the beds of children. Back inside folks. This will happen EVENTUALLY!
