Redhead Rambles #34

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.

  • I watched a couple of cool YouTube videos: this wardrobe clearout from Jodie Melissa and Too Faced Matte-Tallic lip swatches from Shaaanxo. I personally think the Matte-Tallic colours look really pretty but I’m not sure I’d buy them being matte.
  • Last Friday I didn’t sleep in and started my day by finishing a book in bed.
  • In the afternoon I went out and bought a sleeping bag for an overnight stay I had this week as part of work.
  • In the evening I was watching a movie with mum and fell asleep on the couch. It was a good movie so I’m glad I didn’t miss much.
  • On Saturday I had a big cry and a heart to heart with mum and I don’t know how she does it but she always makes me feel better.
  • After that I did some driving practice and once again I didn’t panic which is good.
  • Work was busier on Sunday than it usually is and I was in a better mood.
  • I had a good makeup day and loved pairing MAC’s Tan pigment with Rimmel’s #12 lipstick (similar to MAC Morange).
  • On Monday after work I packed my bag for the overnight stay. I work for local council and every few months there is a one night stay at a marae (pronounced ma-rye) for staff. It was my turn to go and I spent nearly all of Tuesday and most of Wednesday there. I got home late Wednesday afternoon. The food was nice and you don’t go hungry. I woke up with a headache on Wednesday morning but it was nothing ibuprofen and breakfast didn’t fix. Embarrassingly, I fell asleep during one of the PowerPoint presentations but I wasn’t the only one which was a relief.
  • I had Chicken Kiev and wedges for dinner when I got home and it was delicious!
  • The spring weather is definitely here and we’ve had some warm days already.
  • On Thursday it was nice to have a bit of a lie in and have a chilled, relaxing day. Mum and I went to get the groceries and I sang and read in the afternoon.
  • I also decided to wear my bracelet  on Thursday since getting some links taken out in June. It’s one of the first times I’ve worn it properly since I don’t like to wear jewellery to work as I’m scared I’ll knock it when I’m shelving books.
  • Overall it was quieter this week compared to others but it’s been nice to be slower paced and not manic.
  • I know I keep harping on about it but I’m literally a couple of followers away from 1,000. Follow along and encourage your blogging friends to follow because as soon as I hit 1,000 followers I’ll be running a giveaway! The giveaway features products from MAC, Zoeva, L’Oreal, The Body Shop, NYX + more!

How was your week?

    Congrats on almost reaching 1,000 followers! I can’t wait to see what you include in your giveaway even if I’m not able to enter.

    I enjoy starting my days with reading a book in bed, too. 🙂 It’s so relaxing, isn’t it?

    I hope everything that built you up to Saturday is better now. ♡ It’s always nice to have a little heart to heart with someone. ♡

      I’m literally 1 follower away now so I may be able to launch the giveaway next week, the post is written and all ready to go pretty much! 😀

      Even though I love reading and getting stuck into a book I can’t do it for too long at once, I’d rather have short bursts throughout the day rather than a two or three hour block of solid reading.

      I definitely think most of those emotions were hormone related, I feel different this week.

    It sounds like you had a chill week, overall. 💛Love those relaxed weeks. Hearing about your driving practice is so encouraging and relatable! I’ve been driving more lately too. At first, I freaked out a little but it’s been getting easier with time. Glad to hear driving practice went well!

    Congrats on almost reaching 1,000 followers, Chanelle! That is so awesome!! 💖Hope you’re having a great day today! x

    Your driving panic will soon completely disappear, it’s all a matter of getting used to it (I know it’s easier said than done, but that’s the truth) and it will become a second nature. Sometimes I’m so relaxed driving I don’t even remember how I got home. I’m aware that can be bad lol!
    You’re lucky to be so close to your mum 🙂
