It feels like forever since I last did my ‘A Day In The Life’ post and even though that was an absolute pain to make, it’s still one of my favourite posts to look back on. Cue me thinking a ‘Week In Pictures’ post would be a fun idea (*it was actually way harder than I thought*).
No long recaps here because honestly who has time for that? So here’s just a few little snippets of what happens behind The Sunday Mode and some highlights of things I got up to throughout the week, omitting (most of) the painfully boring things and sharing a few trade secrets along the way.
Hopefully you enjoy!
The Commute Routine.
I always feel like I never have time for anything and like I’m always racing against the clock (cue anxiety) but I do actually have sort of a secret weapon routine that really helps me out.
Back in my university days I would use all of my train commutes as opportunities to get things done. That habit has stuck with me like glue so if you’ve ever wondered what I do when I’m on the train or in the car as a passenger, wonder no more. I usually always whip out my phone to try and do things like sort through my calendar/emails, make to-do lists or catch up on blogs. The Bloglovin mobile app + a 20min car journey and I’ve been seriously productive.
The Foodie’s Dream.
In general Tuesday was a honestly a pretty ‘blah’ day (you know the ones) but the highlight was by far this Acai bowl, let’s not even talk about how sad that is. This particular acai was from a really cute little place that does takeaway Acai bowls and a bunch of other smoothies and juices. I got mine blended with almond milk and topped with granola, banana and fresh blueberries. I actually felt a whole lot better about everything after this. Is there anything an Acai bowl can’t fix? What can I say, food must just have that effect on me.
The Clear Out.
I’d been putting it off for a few months but I finally sorted through my wardrobe and got rid of a bunch of clothes, streamlining everything so that choosing what to wear in the morning was no longer a nightmare. I was wildly throwing all the clothes I no longer wanted on my floor and it was actually pretty therapeutic, though in retrospect I probably shouldn’t have thrown the wooden hangers as well because let me tell you, those suckers hurt when they hit your foot.
The Makeup Mess.
For a 22 year old my Saturday was 100% tame and 100% grandma-style. Lately I’ve been in one of those moods where I just want to overhaul my life and clear everything out that I’m not using, so I spent most of Saturday cleaning and organising my makeup stash. It actually felt really good to cull some of my makeup, some of my lipsticks had been there for so long they were starting to develop a fuzz….
The Granola From Heaven.
My Sundays basically include all of my favourite things rolled into one, starting with this incredible granola which I’m just going to spend a few moments drooling over as I edit this post…
If you want to know the nitty gritty details feel free to pop on over to my Day In The Life post, but let’s just say I was happy my birthday fell on a Sunday this year.
Let me know if you enjoy these types of posts, what did you get up to this week?
