snapshots of my week – 30th january

self portrait in small round mirror
well, this week was a vast improvement on the last! i wouldn’t say it was good as such, but nothing bad happened and i’m beginning to come out of the tangled knot of depression i have been in. typically this happens in november and december for me, but i guess my mind needed a rest first, ha!

january as a whole has been very trying both emotionally and mentally (and partly physically too, darn you toothache!) and now the metaphorical grey clouds are slowly interspersing and the light is breaking through. making plans to make this year better than the last and purging some belongings and clothes that no longer fit has definitely helped.

i feel like spring may begin to show it’s head a little earlier this year, and i can’t wait to see crocuses and daffodils showing up everywhere. and yes, i will of course take photos of them!

v&a pattern: heals book
e.l.f. mineral lip tint in 'rose'
tray from tiger and crescent moon shaped hair clip
some little purchases this week that have made it a bit brighter:
i’ve wanted this v&a pattern book with patterns from heal’s for quite a while now and i’m glad i can now call it mine! those patterns make my eyes and mind happy.

i also finally popped into the e.l.f shop in town (in morgan arcade i think?) and bought this really nice lip tint. it’s pretty much exactly what i’ve been looking for, for ages now. just a super pretty and natural rosy colour. aaaand finally a tray from tiger. okay, yes it was an impulse purchase but it was only £2 and the pattern was too cute to turn down.

how has your week been?

      i know the one here is the only one in wales ..i don't know if there's any in england, actually. ahh, rubbish mascara sucks! this lip tint is lovely – and like you say – so cheap, so you don't feel quite so bad if its not very good.
