This week has been confusing. It started well, with the New Moon — I did a ritual, set some intentions, meditated & felt amazing. But then, I felt… lost. I think I’m still feeling the fresh grief from losing Harley, but there’s just something else that’s been… off. I have spent days after each other, doing my usual self-work and writing/journaling/talking to myself, and I couldn’t figure out what it was that was bringing me down. I asked for tips to feel better on my Instagram story, and thought it would be helpful to share what everyone else wrote to help to feel better:
- Sleep hygiene
- Drinking enough water
- Meditate + breathing exercises
- Best coffee (or tea) you have
- Best perfume
- Towels in the dryer before you shower
(All the points above were by one beautiful person, Kaitlyn, what a gem).
- Self love
- Venting to someone
- Take a bath
- Treat yourself like you’re sick
- Write it all down
- Play your happy songs
- Call a friend
- Have a close friend over for movies & snacks
- Morning walk
All day Thursday, I slept. Like, I mean all day. I woke up just before 2pm, fell asleep not longer after, and properly woke again at 5:30pm. This was much needed and it was nice not to make myself feel guilty for not doing any work. It is okay to rest! It is also majorly okay to be sad and allow yourself to feel it! Doing so helped me get myself out of bed this morning and get out of the house.
I got myself completely ready to go into town on Wednesday, got to the door to leave, and just… turned around. I realised I didn’t feel like leaving the house, so I… didn’t.
But I made it out of the house today! And felt cute, so here’s a selfie:
I finally received all the bits and bobs to make my wonderfully popular Daisy pieces, so I spent all day Tuesday & Wednesday making, making, drinking coffee, finishing Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and making. Launched Wednesday and been busy with the orders from you beautiful people!
Words written in my book: 200. That’s 200% more than the past few weeks!
I ate a healthy dinner every night this week!
I rewatched all of Younger in anticipation of the last season coming to Stan this week, and while I still love it… I just, realised how manipulative so many of the characters are? But what can I really expect from the creator of Sex and the City & Emily in Paris, lol. My love for Hilary Duff will stay with me for my whole lifetime, but Kelsey actually sucks sometimes. I have read that the creators have said the real love story of the show is Liza & Kelsey’s friendship, but I disagree… the real love story is Diana and Enzo. Also, Diana and Maggie are the best parts of the show.
Still working hard on the tarot designs, of which the preorder finishes in two weeks! Preorder now so you can get your chance at some extra magical freebies.
Use this weekend to do some of the self care tips from above. Rest, write, read and remember you rock. As always, look after yourself x
