It’s been a looong time since I last posted, so I’m here to give you a little life update.
1. I got a cat! We rehomed him a few months ago. We named him Lupin after Remus Lupin from Harry Potter. He loves to follow us around the house and play with his tunnels. He is the first real pet I’ve ever had, and honestly the adjustment hasn’t been as difficult as I thought it would be. If you check my Insta Stories you will see him make quite a few appearances. It turns out I’m kind of a cat lady.
2. I got, and recovered from, severe cystic acne. I think this one deserves its own post, so I won’t go into too many details right now. But this is one of the reasons I’ve been a bit AWOL.
3. I started taking more time for myself. For the past three and a half years I’ve worked two jobs. I really enjoyed them both, but it also meant that I was working seven days a week. I finally reached the realization that this just wasn’t sustainable for me and my happiness, so I decided to leave my second job and spend more time with my family. I now have time to run errands, exercise, read, and get enough sleep.
4. I cut my hair! I’ve had long hair for the past ten years, and I really did love it. But after it took me almost an hour just to wash and brush my hair one day (I didn’t even brush it), I knew I was absolutely ready to make a big change. I cut off over a foot of hair and I haven’t looked back since. My morning routine is so much easier and I no longer have to worry about setting aside enough time to wash my hair.
I think that’s it for updates!
This yellow sweater is an absolute gem! Yellow is my happy colour. Every time I wear it I feel like I can take on anything. This sweater is particularly fantastic because it’s comfortable and it’s from a company that values sustainable, high quality fabrics. I’ve purchased a few items from them and they’ve all exceeded my expectations. This is not sponsored, by the way, I just really love their products. The yellow colour is sold out, but I’ve linked the same sweater in lilac.
Thank you so much for reading! Let me know what topics you would like to see me cover in the comments.
