This Week...#3

This week has been a bit up and down for me. Nothing major happened (or didn't happen) but, I've felt like I've misplaced my blogging mojo and the creativity juices are just not flowing at the moment and that's definitely been affecting my mood! After almost 4 years in the game, I know that this happens so, hopefully that spark comes back soon. Of course, there were things that made this week enjoyable so, here they are!

Perfect Presents...It was my birthday the week before last and I got some lovely gifts but, one of my favourites was from Dee because (a) I had been really wanting to try the Oribe Dry Texturising Spray and (b) it shows how much she "gets" me and knows what I would like. That coaster though...hilarious because it's true!

Hannah Maggs...I spoke about my love of mommy vlogs in my last This Week post but, since then I have discovered Hannah Maggs and have watched almost all of her videos! She is around the same age as Dee and I and has just had the cutest little baby. Her videos are so professional and a pleasure to watch, especially as she is so honest about the ups and downs of life as a mother.

NARS...It's too early to call it but, NARS is definitely doing everything right to be my brand of the year. Release after release is so on point and this delivery this week put a smile on my face. The Contour Blush in Olympia is perfect for my fair complexion and I further added to my Velvet Matte Lip Pencil obsession with Dragon Girl, a great, raspberry red.

Meryl Streep...When I grow up, I want to be Meryl Streep. She is everything a woman should be in my eyes; classy, elegant, sexy, refined all topped off with a down-to-earth demeanour and a wicked sense of humour. I saw this photo on Facebook during the week and just loved how it showed all those sides to her; both as she was in 1979 and how she is now. And yes, that is the same dress 30 years apart! Now I feel like watching It's Complicated!

Getting it together...I've tried a million times to write a post about health/weightloss/food as many people have asked for it. However, I'm no expert and it's hard to write it without feeling preachy. This week I finally found a way of eating that works for me; I eat high fat, low carb and feel amazing for it. Oodles of energy, great quality sleep night after night and, yes, I am losing weight! I feel super pumped and motivated!

I'd love to hear what has made you smile this week!


  1. That coaster is priceless haha! :D



  2. You'll get your mojo back Sinead, you're a wonderful writer! That photo of Meryl made me smile, I really hope to fit into the clothes I have now in 30 years time!
