My Week In Words | #24 2015

"Recreational shopping is the shortest distance between two points: you and broke."
Victoria Moran

Welcome to this instalment of My Week In Words. Another late one, I apologise. Monday kind of suits me better for posting these right now. On Sundays I seem to just be tired, well.. more tired than I am the rest of the week at least. Anyway! This post covers from Sunday 7th to Saturday 13th of June. Enjoy!

I woke up to a fry up on Sunday as usual. For some reason I was shattered all day. I didn't end up writing My Week In Words and just relaxed. My aunt Karen visited as usual and after that I ended up working on a post to mark Edwin's Gotcha Day and to make up for the lack of My Week In Words. After I finished the post I chilled online and then fed Violet and Duro before bed. Right now I'm trying a variety of different foods to see what their favourites are but also so they don't become picky and stuck on one thing. On Sunday they tried snail mix we bought from the same seller I got the them from and some cucumber. It went down a treat.

Treat Yo Self Haul

"The quickest way to know a woman is to go shopping with her."
Marcelene Cox

Yesterday Eva and I decided to have a 'Treat Yo Self' day in Belfast. A day of shopping and good food. I know it probably seems like I've been treating myself a lot lately and I really do need to start taking better care of my bank but I just felt like I really needed a day to enjoy myself with my sister. I've been feeling in a bit of a slump lately and so has Eva, so we just wanted to cheer ourselves up. It was a great day but you'll hear more about that in My Week In Words tomorrow. Today I thought I would show off all the lovely goodies I got.

Shameless Self Love Post

"Self love is the source of all our other loves."
Pierre Corneille

I think self love is one of the most important and probably one of the most difficult things to achieve in life. So many people rely on validation from others to be happy with themselves and in themselves because we're constantly made to think that others know better. Magazines know better. Hollywood knows better. Men know better for women. Women know better for men. Basically everyone knows better than ourselves. Sometimes even when we do meet whatever standards someone else has set we still can't quite believe it because we've made our own standards impossible to meet. We'll never be beautiful enough. Kind enough. Funny enough. No matter how many 'good' qualities we have the 'flaw' will always be what's glaringly obvious to our own eyes.

My Week In Words | #23 2015

"Those who wish to pet and baby wild animals 'love' them. But those who respect their natures and wish to let them live normal lives, love them more."
Edwin Way Teale

Welcome to this week's edition of My Week In Words! A day late but here nonetheless. It's been an eventful week, with some goodbyes and a couple of hellos! I hope you enjoy meeting some of my new family members and reading what else I've been up to.

Pets 'n' Stuff | Happy Gotcha Day Edwin

"A little man often cast a long shadow."
G. M. Trevelyan

Usually I would be posting My Week In Words today but I had a bit of a busy weekend and I've just been too shattered to write it up. I don't know what's wrong with my lately. I'll have it up tomorrow though. Despite being too tired to write My Week In Words, I couldn't let today pass without marking Edwin's first Gotcha Day. This day a year ago I drove with my dad to Newtownhamilton to get my little man. If you want to read the story behind us getting Berty (Eva's chihuahua) and Edwin then check out this post.

If you're not wearing nails...

"...you're not doing drag."
Alaska Thunderf*ck

Okay, so I'm not 'wearing' nails. I mean they're my real nails. I'll have to ask Alaska if you can still do drag so long as my real nails are on point. Anyway! Today was a supposed to be a Bloo's Review but I've been a little busy so I didn't make sure I had something to review. I was going to sack off today's blog post because I've been feeling a bit lazy but then I did my nails and I figured I would show them off. People love nail posts, right? 

What I used for this look was (in order of use):

Television | My Latest Series #1

"If it weren't for electricity, we'd all be watching television by candlelight."
George Gobel

Today's post is pretty self explanatory! Here are five of the latest additions to television shows I've been watching. I really recommend most of these shows and if anyone wants to fan girl over any of them with me then you know where to find me!
