Redhead Rambles #27

Hello everyone and welcome to ‘Redhead Rambles’. The series does what it says on the tin, it is a redhead (me) rambling about her week. I share what I’ve been up to each week, how I’ve been feeling and what I’ve been listening to or watching. Occasionally I will my share favourite blog posts and links I’ve found useful or interesting.

  • My mood was low on my days off. I felt angry and sad and confused and didn’t feel like talking. I don’t always know how my mood will be from one day to the next but I am feeling more positive this week and think I know what I need to do to keep it positive.
  • I finally figured out how to set the clock in my car after my practice drive last Friday. It had been stuck on 12:00 for weeks and was bugging me.
  • Mum and I tried to go for another drive on Saturday but all the car parks we could think of had cars in them.
  • I painted my nails using Glow Your Own Way by Essie.
  • On Sunday at work I got a compliment on my lipstick (After Dark by Urban Decay) and my hair.
  • July 29th was #NationalLipstickDay and MAC were giving away Hug Me or See Sheer with purchases over $40. I placed online orders with two different places so actually got both shades free. I purchased the Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft & Gentle for myself and a couple of bits for my 1,000 follower giveaway! Both orders arrived on Thursday and I shared swatches of the lipsticks and Soft & Gentle on Instagram stories.
  • On Monday my Beauty Bay order arrived. This also contains giveaway products so I haven’t shared the contents of it.
  • I tried the strawberry face mist from The Body Shop and it smells delicious! The mist isn’t overly wet which is good because you can control how much comes out but you’ll need to use more sprays if you like extra hydration and moisture.
  • Kaily shared *THIS VIDEO* of her Mid-Year Makeup Declutter. She’s donating as many products as she can as well which is awesome!
  • My annual leave at work for Shania Twain’s concert in December got approved.
  • I got a free hot chocolate given to me at work on Tuesday.
  • When I arrived home on Tuesday after work Halo was curled up in her little cat bed. That’s the first time I’ve seen her use it.
  • I started reading Still Me by Jojo Moyes.
  • My mum has been sick which is always horrible as it’s not a normal cough and stuffy nose she gets, it goes straight to her chest and makes her breathless.

How was your week?

    Huge hugs beauty! It is okay to have not so good days, that is when you have to treat yourself with extra love instead of pushing yourself to “Be” happy. I am glad you are feeling better. I am sorry to hear your mom is sick. I hope she feels better really soon! yay for setting the clock! That is always an annoyance of mine…And somehow the hardest thing to figure out lol. I hope this week is amazing for you hun! ❤

      Having not so good days is normal, sometimes I still feel the shock of the breakup and all the feelings come flooding back, I will get better and that’s what keeps me going! About the clock, I’m now wondering if the previous owners never set it and couldn’t figure it out or whether it was reset or something haha 😂 have a beautiful week!

    Hey Chanelle, sorry to hear that you weren’t feeling too well during your days off. :/ Glad to hear you’re feeling better though, that’s great! Also, I hope your mom feels much better soon. My bf’s like that. He’ll get some pretty intense chesty coughs when he’s sick. Last one he had lasted a month!

    I haven’t tried After Dark by Urban Decay but I’ll have to check it out when I go makeup shopping. Their products are always great quality!

    I really love your red head rambles series, so fun to read and it’s like a diary. Really cool ❤

      We all have not so good days but I have felt better this week. My mum doesn’t have a tickly or chesty cough or dropping nose it’s just her breathing this time which in some ways is good because she might not need antibiotics. Hope your bag has recovered from his cough!

      Glad you enjoy the series! ☺️

    I love these types of honest posts! I seem to feel very angry and confused on some days too especially when I am feeling negative and low! I guess I just remind myself that tomorrow will be better and that helps!
    Hope you mom gets better soon! xx
