Redhead Rambles #39

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.

  • Last Friday I drew my giveaway winner for Monday’s announcement post. If you aren’t already aware, the winner is Nadine!
  • Late on Friday night I placed an xoBeauty order. I ordered one of the Radiant Glow Highlight Powders and a Detail Fibre Brush. I have heard Shannon mention this brush is particularly good for blush which is what I intend to use it for. As Monday was a public holiday in New Zealand the items shipped on Tuesday and arrived the next day.
  • I was very tired on Saturday but luckily perked for work on Sunday.
  • On Sunday I ordered Dominos pizza online and there was a mix up, I ended up with two deliveries at my door. I went to pay with my card online and it said the transaction could not be processed and it timed out and directed me back to the home page. I started my order again and selected a different payment method this time. Luckily I did because it turns out the first payment and order had gone through and after the first order had been delivered a second one turned up. I explained the mix up and realised I should have phoned the store. I felt bad so I Facebook messaged the company and they told me not to worry, I wouldn’t get in trouble for sending the second delivery man away.
  • On Monday I didn’t sleep in but I was tired again so I had an afternoon nap.
  • Tuesday was very hot and I had a few errands to run after work; go to the chemist and get a few bits from the supermarket. At the supermarket I bought a pain au chocolat for morning tea on Wednesday and it was delicious!
  • Wednesday was also my last day of work for a little while, my annual leave started on Thursday.
  • No sleep in again on Thursday so I got up and made a mocha and an omelette for breakfast.
  • I wrote a list of what I want to get done during my time off and I managed to cross off pluck eyebrows and shave legs within the first day.
  • I bubble wrapped the giveaway items and found a box to send them in to keep them secure.
  • I tried The Body Shop’s Virgin Mojito body butter for the first time and it smells so fresh. The formula is soft and creamy and it’s a gorgeous lime green colour.

What I’ve been listening to:

Ellie Goulding – Ellie released a new track called Close To Me this week and I also played Delirium.

Dua Lipa – Dua re-released her debut album with new tracks.

How was your week?

    Well done to Nadine!!
    The domino’s story, this happens way too often to me, it happened more so with clothes shopping and ebay though… Extra pizza seems like a great shout 🙂
    My week’s been ok tbh, having some crap with work and it seems to be taking over, trying to figure a way around that.
    It’s nearly Friday for me here and super excited for this weekend. House cleaning and DIY’in on the cards and my last weekend of Blogtober so excited to get back to normal blog-wise!

      I’ve never had any issues with Dominos delivery before. I can understand margins of error as technology isn’t always reliable but I hope it doesn’t happen all the time to others. I didn’t keep the extra pizzas sadly, I wouldn’t have been able to eat them 😦

      Sounds like you’ve got a productive weekend planned!

    I’ve had online ordering mix ups happen to me before. I guess that is bound to happen when technology hiccups! I’ve also had it happen to me on the Starbucks app when I go to order my coffee.

    I used to live on pain au chocolate – I had them a few times when I was in France a few years ago. Here we have chocolate croissants which is similar. I don’t eat them anymore because I changed my diet but I used to love them so much!

    Ah! Luckily you didn’t put your card info twice! The mojito body butter sounds delicious! & I didn’t know about Ellie & Dua’s new music– def gonna check them both out. Thanks for sharing, Chanelle. 🙂 Hope you have lovely time off from work!

    Enjoy every moment of your leave. 😃 There is nothing better than a few days of self care and just having a bit of time to do more of what you want to do instead of what you have to do.

    What public holiday was it there on Monday? Random question but I am always interested to hear about what holidays other countries have. Us South Africans have too many to count. I sometimes think that our government will find any excuse to create a public holiday. 😂😂 I’m not complaining though.
