Redhead Rambles #33

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.

  • If you know how much I love the number 3 you’ll understand how satisfying it is that this is ramble #33!
  • Last Friday I got called into work. It was so windy outside and sitting at the traffic lights on the way in I could see them shaking in the wind.
  • I saw Sophie Hannah’s new Poirot mystery on the New Release shelf at work and issued it instantly. I finished it over the weekend and absolutely loved it! I’m hoping for more!
  • After work on Friday mum and I went to the mall and I found a brand new book for only $3.00! It’s called Match Me If You Can by Michele Gorman and it sounds like it will be a good laugh with a hint of romance.
  • I applied for Annual Leave at work during the last week of October which is the same week Harry and Meghan are in New Zealand. They will even be visiting my city which is pretty cool!
  • On Monday evening I placed a MECCA Beauty order which arrived less than 48 hours later on Wednesday afternoon. I created a makeup look with the three makeup items on Thursday and absolutely loved it. A blog post will be up sharing which products I used next Monday but I shared an image on Instagram if you want to see in advance how the look turned out. Spoiler: I love the products and I’m super happy with how they looked on my skin!
  • On Tuesday my ASOS order arrived and sadly the dress was a disappointment. It was big around the shoulders as mine are quite narrow but the elasticated waist didn’t fall in the right place on me and it wasn’t flattering. I posted the dress back on Thursday. The scarf is amazing though! The colour and pattern are really pretty and I’ve worn it already!
  • For most of this week I’ve had a sad feeling and I think it’s mostly hormone related but I’ve felt really uneasy. I’ve been missing my ex again as around this time two years ago we met for the first time and everything was new and exciting and I remember being so happy at that point in my life. I don’t know if this is TMI but the idea of physical touching, kissing and hugging makes me feel sick and like it’s dirty/wrong to think of that now. Maybe it’s because I’m associating it with the person who hurt me but I don’t want it to be a hurdle in the future. Let me know if you’d like a post exploring that a bit further, I think it could be interesting and honest, personal stories and experiences are what I do well on this blog. It could even turn into a Hey, It’s Okay…
  • Alongside the uneasy feelings and sadness there have been moments of anger and confusion relating to online dating this week too. I’ve never slammed dating apps in the past as that’s how I met my first boyfriend (so it can work) but this time round I have had a different experience. I didn’t expect it would be the same as before and I was going to get a boyfriend quickly and we’d meet and hit it off and that would be it. I can barely have a conversation, let alone get to the point of actually meeting up with somebody. I’m not afraid to ask what kind of thing they’re looking for or ask questions to try and get to know the person better but 90% of them only seem to want one thing, unmatch me or just stop responding. I see it as an indication that they aren’t worth getting to know but in today’s digital, online world it can be frustrating. Everything is done behind a screen and they would rather message on Facebook than meet for a bite to eat or see a movie. I’m a bit more traditional and prefer to get to know someone in person. I feel like I could write a whole post on this subject too so again, let me know if you’d like one.

What I’ve been listening to:

Silk City and Dua Lipa – Electricity – Dua Lipa is like Ellie Goulding 2.0 for me. Nearly every song she makes I love, her tone is distinctive and she’s British! Dua teams up with Silk City and Mark Ronson for this catchy house offering.

How was your week?

    What’s Sophie Hannah’s book called?😊 Aaw awesome about Harry and Meghan, are you hoping to see them?🙂 You know I love the Asos scarf you got! It looks great on you💕 I’m sorry to hear you felt bad this week. Certain times of the year can bring back memories and feelings. I’ve never used a dating site but I can imagine there’s a lot of frogs until you find a prince. You know what you’re worth and what you want. You’ll meet a decent guy who’s more traditional xx

      The Mystery of Three Quarters 😊 it would be nice to see Harry and Meghan but not the end of the world if I don’t. So happy with the scarf, it’s funny how unexpected finds can sometimes be the best! Tbh dating sites and apps wouldn’t be my preferred method of meeting someone but it’s a sign of the times and lots of people use them so you’d think there’s more potential to find somebody haha x

    A book for $3 sounds like such a steal girl! Would know to your thoughts on it! I’m sorry you are having these feelings and to be honest, I feel they are completely normal! It will probably take you some time to move on and reach that point with some body else! I’m sure you will find someone amazing and worth your time soon! xx

      Especially a new book too! I’m sure those types of feelings are completely normal but sometimes you can get bogged down and forget other people probably have felt the same too. I find talking about feelings can be difficult because some people are quick to judge but if I can help someone else or make them realise it’s okay to feel like that it’s a good thing 🙂 I’ll put some thought into a post
