Redhead Rambles #32

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.

  • The weather last Friday was absolutely stunning!
  • I tidied my room, rearranged my desk and got rid of some clutter.
  • Saturday marked the first day of spring in the Southern Hemisphere and I created a simple, pretty makeup look which I shared on Instagram.
  • On Saturday afternoon mum and I went into town. I had a craving for Burger King and then we looked in a couple of shops. I bought a pair of pyjama pants, a shirt and some earrings.
  • After being in town I went for a drive in a new spot that enables me to go straight for a decent amount of time and there’s also a couple of roundabouts which is good to start getting used to those. I drove my car and I didn’t panic this time.
  • I was very tired on Saturday night and Sunday night. (Not sure why).
  • My nail split at work on Monday and I had to pull a chunk of it off. Luckily it wasn’t too far down and didn’t hurt.
  • Mum cut my fringe and it always takes a week or so after it’s cut before I like how it looks again.
  • On Monday evening I ordered two things from ASOS – this dress and this scarf. I saw the dress in one of Fleur De Force’s recent videos and I commented on a photo of her wearing it on Instagram saying how pretty it looked. The scarf was a bit of an impulse buy but I really like the red-pink colour of it. A couple of my other scarves are dark so the colour will pop against black clothing. Coincidentally both items are from Miss Selfridge which is a brand I have never purchased from before.
  • On Tuesday I texted a school friend for her birthday and we both agreed to catch up soon.
  • I entered Rachael’s 500K Views Giveaway. Rachael is one of my favourite bloggers, not only is she beautiful and creates stunning makeup looks, she is a machine at finishing up products and is one of the hardest working bloggers.
  • On Wednesday I felt like sparkle so I wore Fuchsia Fusion by NYX from their Cosmic Metals range on my lips. I’m still adamant this is the prettiest lip colour I’ve ever seen!
  • I sang along to some of my favourite Delta Goodrem tracks and caught up with YouTube videos on Wednesday evening.
  • Thursday I spent chilling, and most of the day consisted of reading. I finished an eBook and started my next novel.
  • I joined Goodreads. My challenge to read 50 books in a year ended last Friday (I managed 45 books btw) and I want to try recording what I read on the site so myself and others can see what I enjoy or what I don’t finish. It’ll take a bit of learning to get used to how the site works but it’s an easy way to track things.
  • Thursday’s dinner was Chicken Kiev with boiled potatoes. I don’t have Chicken Kiev very often but I do enjoy garlic and felt like one when I saw them in the supermarket a couple of days earlier.

What I’ve been listening to:

  • My ‘good vibes :)’ playlist on iTunes – This playlist contains songs that I never get tired of listening to and songs that always make me happy.

How was your week?

    Ah, it’s such a good feeling to be behind the wheel. I miss driving so much. I did my license test three times and failed each time so now I need to rewrite my learners permit and I am not allowed to drive. They are very strict on the parking tests here. It’s the best feeling to have that freedom though! All the best with getting confident on the road. 😃

      I’ll be glad when the nerves completely subside and I do feel confident on the road. I will get there but it’s not something I find easy to learn and not something that can be learnt overnight. I think what worries me is having to react quickly if another driver does something unexpectedly and not being ready for it x

        The best thing my driving instructor did was that he took me driving in heavy traffic and forced me to cross busy intersections, etc, as soon as he felt I was ready to do it. It made me quite a bit more confident on the road because I was in traffic from nearly the beginning so I knew how to deal with a situation if it came to be. I had an incident where a car swerved into my lane when I was behind the wheel with no more than a metre between us and I reacted in time. I slammed on breaks and narrowly avoided an accident and I wasn’t even an experienced driver at that point. I have no doubt you would be able to react appropriately if you needed to. Give yourself time though. You will get there. X

        A few weeks ago I was talking to a friend and asked her where driving instructors take people for lessons and she said the first lesson they are on the main roads etc. I can see why they would do that but if it’s someone like me who is completely new to driving and figuring out everything it could be quite daunting. At some point a few professional lessons might help 🙂 x

        Mine the first few my instructor just took me around an empty parking lot making sure I managed to pull away and the basics. I am lucky though, I have an amazing instructor. He only took me onto busy roads when he felt I was ready for it and reassured me right the way through that I can do it and would just speak through the steps of what needed to happen in that situation. I also wouldn’t advise getting on the busy roads right away, that would be terrifying. Haha 🙈 You will get there all in good time. 😃 All the best. X

    I also split a nail this week, hate it when that happens, it’s always when I’m out the house too and never have the tools to minimise the breakage!
    I admired that dress in Fleur’s video too, I’m way too tall for Miss Selfridge though! everything is half the length it should be on me!
    Thank you for your comments Chanelle, you’ve brightened up my very long week!

      Splitting a nail tends to happen when you don’t have a nail file haha, Murphy’s Law!
      I’m short and the dress looks short-ish so it’ll probably fall a bit lower on me than Fleur and the ASOS model, I’m hoping it fits and looks ok 😊
      I mean what I said, your blog is genuinely one of my favourites to read and I always look forward to your posts! ❤️
