Don't you hate it when you feel like things aren't really going your way and yet you have nobody to blame for it but yourself! I'm very much feeling that way at the moment. I've sort of lost enthusiasm for everything at the moment... except maybe shopping and eating! I have stopped working on my final university paper completely, I've quit one of my jobs and am trying to find every excuse under the sun as to why I couldn't possibly work a full time job at the moment (and got rather pissy when my boyfriend commented on the fact that I had become a 'lady of leisure, but realise now that he's right), I am currently too lazy to go house hunting, too lazy (or scared) to pursue my dreams of starting my own proper little vintage shop despite having clothes, shoes, bags, furniture practically coming out of my ears, too lazy to start the food blog I have been meaning too for months now, to lazy to exercise, just simply too LAZY! Anyway I've come to realise that one of my biggest time wasters is the internet. I spent countless hours reading blogs, checking and rechecking twitter (yes I have an account but I don't actually post anything, I just use it to read other peoples comments!), and browsing Trade Me, ebay, and etsy! And it absolutely HAS to stop until I get back on track. I am going to put myself on a complete internet ban (except maybe to check emails once a day) until I have at least finished my university paper, so if you don't hear from me in a while it doesn't mean that I have necessarily dropped off the face of the planet. Does anybody else ever feel like this? And if so what do you do when you are stuck in a rut or too scared to pursue the things you really want? Or do you always grab life by the horns and go for it? I would be very curious to know!
Ok enough of the whinging. Here is one thing that never fails to cheer me up...
That's right, a delicious cream donut (yes this is the one I ate about 5 minutes ago)! I'm not at all a comfort eater, nor do I particularly have a sweet tooth however when my day isn't going the way I feel it should this is the one thing I like to treat myself to!
And while we're on the topic of food, last week my sister and I went to check out the very first Top Shop to come to NZ. Sadly we arrived to find it closed because the opening day had been such a success that they had sold out of stock and had to close up shop for a week until a new shipment arrived! Anyway we decided that since we were already in town we may as well grab a coffee and headed to a cute little cafe my sister had heard of by the water.
And in other news (sorry this is such a mish mash of stuff today)...
After having dry cracking lips for months now (and as a result not being able to wear lipstick as much as I like) I have found the magic cure. People have been telling me about how amazing this stuff is for ages now but somehow I never believed it. But they were telling the truth, it's AMAZING!
It particularly came in handy the other day when I did a little shoot for somebody entering the 'Max Factor's next great make up artist' competition. After almost 4 hours of getting my hair and make up done I ended up with red burning eyes (they're not a fan of false lashes), a blinding headache, and hair greasy with setting lotion. Having said that I think the photo's turned out great so I hope she wins! I'll be sure to post photos when I get some.
Oh and lastly here is a blog I recently found that I really quite like The Coveted.
Ok I think I've rambled on quite enough (doubtful that too many people actually read rambles like this) so I will wish you a great weekend and see you in a few weeks when I'll hopefully be fresh and full of enthusiasm.
