This week has been a calm week, we have had the best summer but it’s been wall-to-wall crazy. It’s been nice to just chill out and catch up a little. The weather has been mostly bad but there have been some bright days thank goodness.
This week I have loved
Getting out and walking
We spent last weekend catching up with family, I managed to get to the gym for a swim and we enjoyed a few country walks. That is the wonderful thing about living out here; you always feel motivate to go out for a walk. Getting out in the open is so calming, all that open space. We walk Toby every day, but this week we have gone a little further every night. I am not sure how motivated I will feel to do this when the weather is bad and the nights are cold. But for now I am loving the opportunity.
We have started watching the back catalogue of friends on Netflix. I loved watching them last time round so can’t wait to relive all those amazing old episodes. I honestly forgot quite how funny they were.
After giving up with Why My Mummy Drinks I have started to read The Runaway Wife by Dee MacDonald. I am not far in but so far so good. Already I like the main character and am intrigued to see what happens.
Tried Hello Fresh
We have tried Hello Fresh before and loved it; this time we loved 2 of the 3 meals we were sent. Although 1 of the meals was very high in fat and we found ourselves substituting some of the ingredients to cut some of the fat content out. However the meals are so tasty, just a little labour intensive.
It’s perfect for the weekends when you have a little more time to spend in the kitchen. We cook almost everything from fresh so are well used to cooking from scratch. Maybe it’s a case of the recipes are more labour intensive the first time you cook them as you have to concentrate a little more. I would order again, but at the weekend when I am not trying to multi task as much. If you fancy giving it a go this Hello Fresh Discount Code with give you 50% off your first 2 boxes CHAOS50
Persevering with Curly Girl Method
It’s been a hard week on the hair front, but I feel I had a break through at the end of the week. I am going to be testing out a few products in the next couple of weeks and creating a curly girl product guide, when you are stood trying to choose products it’s so hard as you have to check the ingredients, so I have been doing product research all week.
I will be testing out curly girl products and compiling a post of curly girl approved products to hep new curlies like me.
This week I have been using Noughty hair products and they have felt like a real hair lifesaver. They are all very moisturising which I think is what my hair was missing. My curls seem to be forming much better with more moisture.
My lovely friend Elena has been doing Curly Girl for a year and you can see how amazing her hair looks so I am sticking to it.
On The Blog
I have also been talking about confidence and how it can affect everything this week, and have really challenged myself over the summer with lots of things. Wow I can’t believe the difference overcoming a challenge makes you feel. I don’t suffer with confidence issues, but I do have a few fears and one by one I am overcoming them.
And I think that’s it for me this week. Today Joe and I have planned a shopping day and lunch. The fact that he has agreed means he has a pretty long list of things her wants. This weekend Chris and I will have been married 24 years so we plan to go for a long walk to a lovely pub and enjoy great food and wine. I am hoping for sunshine, fingers crossed. We may even book our 25thAnniversary trip for next year; we are thinking 5 nights hot and sunny just the two of us.
Have a great week whatever you are up too
