Five Things – Week 102

Five Things – Week 102

Five Things I Did Last Week

  • On Monday I had a self-indulgent evening in where I did some work prep and then relaxed on the sofa with some (naughty) comfort food and watched a mindless movie which was really nice.
  • On Wednesday I headed to my nan’s after slimming world to have a catch up with her and my auntie.
  • On Thursday evening I headed into London to an event with Megabus and despite feeling a bit anxious beforehand as I didn’t really know many people I had such a fun night. Keep your eyes peeled for a post coming soon.
  • I had a few interviews and calls with companies and recruiters this week and in my mind they went well but the proof will be later this week when I find out more.
  • On Friday morning me and Luke headed to Luxembourg where we had a really relaxed and chilled weekend away seeing a bit of the city and just having a well-deserved chill-out.

Five Great Things To Happen

  • I made an order of IGK haircare products from Space NK just as they launched. I was going to wait until I went to New York as the prices are a bit cheaper but thanks to a good discount code I managed to get them for pretty much the same price and I can try them out before I go.
  • I’ve finally got my full outfit sorted for Valentines Day including a brand new pair of heels as I realised I pretty much don’t own any wearable heels. When I say wearable I mean low and chunky enough for to be comfortable in.
  • As I had some time off before going to the event on Thursday I managed to have a bit of a catch up on work and get to a point where I didn’t have anything outstanding meaning I’ve come back from my trip without a lot hanging over me.
  • I booked tickets for me and Luke to head to a tribute night in Camden including Green Day, Fall out Boy and Busted tribute bands and I am so excited for the night.
  • This technically happened the week before but I forgot to mention it, I managed to bag tickets to see Eminem and while they were pretty pricey I am so excited about the show.


Five Four Things Which Sucked

  • I put on two pounds at Slimming World this week. To be honest I wasn’t surprised at all as I hadn’t eaten the best but it was a shame after losing most weeks since Christmas.
  • After one of my telephone interviews, I did feel a bit disheartened that perhaps I’m just not good enough to be going for the jobs I am. I know it’s just my insecurities screaming out to me but it’s something I need to make myself feel happier about.
  • I bought a really nice pair of trousers for work but they didn’t fit and it made me really sad as I am trying to mix up my work wardrobe but everything new I buy just doesn’t suit or fit me.
  • I tried making an order from Ulta Beauty but they wouldn’t accept it through and my mailbox delivery service is currently not working to buy it for me. #firstworldproblems

Five Things To Do Next Week

  • Prep and schedule my content from my recent trip to Luxembourg
  • Head to Ikea to pick up my Alex drawers which are going to be for my brand new and improved makeup storage. I am so excited to have a proper area and get everything out of my ensuite bathroom.
  • Book facials for when we are in New York. There’s a salon which do a beard facial and I want to treat Luke for his birthday when we’re there, and of course, I am going to get one too.
  • Prep a bit more of our New York plans so I can book a tour I want to do
  • Have a wander around New Look when I go to Milton Keynes on Sunday and see if I can find some goodies to spend my gift cards on.
What have you been up to this week?

    What some awesome things you have had going on. YAY for booking Eminem tickets and a beard facial?! I wonder if I could tempt Ash into one at some point though do they do such things over here hmm.

    Looks like you did so much and have a lot more planned for the coming week. What caught my eye from your list was the tribute night tickets in Camden. You are going to have a great nite jamming to Green Day, Fall out Boy and Busted. Enjoy it.

    I so want to get back to IKEA soon, I love their little green mazipan style chocolate cakes!! You seem to fit so much in to your weeks, I wonder if I write mine down it will make me feel better. Those facials sound great!

    Green Day and Fall Out Boy are now the subjects of cover bands? I am rather saddened by this for some reason…
    Just make sure you put enough money aside to buy yourself a Yankees cap!

    Hope all those interviews went well and that you’ll have lots of good news next week!

    Sometimes you just need an evening to zone out, eat junk food and watch a crappy (but awesome) film.

    Sounds like you are a busy bee like me. The Megabus event in London sounded fun. Also I love an evening in on the sofa chilled with naughty treats x

    Can’t wait to read about your recent trip to Luxembourg and you are going to love New York! I am so excited for you to go there!

    Seems like you had a lovely week. I would love to go and see Eminem, so it’s great that you manage to get tickets!

  10. February 14, 2018 / 4:24 pm

    Wow so much in a short period. Sounded great though.

  11. February 16, 2018 / 7:59 pm

    Sounds like you had a pretty busy week! It’s great that you write this down. It’s so easy to forget what you do in a busy week and take stock.

  12. February 16, 2018 / 10:03 pm

    It sounds like you’ve had a very busy week! Don’t worry about gaining 2 pounds, it’s devastating though when you work so hard. It’s so annoying how easy it is to gain weight but how bloody hard it is to lose it! Have a great week next week 🙂

    You have accomplished alot this week and you have set really great agenda’s for coming week too. I feel like being productive now.

  15. February 17, 2018 / 12:56 pm

    You really had a memorable week.. Cant even remember how my week was aside from the fact that i met up with an intending employee . the week was a little messed up and stressful for me.

  16. February 18, 2018 / 10:30 am

    Oh New York will be amazing and how lovely that your OH can join you and have a beard facial. I have put on weight this week after lots of exercise and its disheartening isn’t it. I am putting it down to hormonal changes :/

  17. February 18, 2018 / 10:57 am

    Seems you’ve had a very busy week! Weight gain is easy but when you have to lose it become painful! Have a great week!

    It is frustrating to find out you still gained weight after all the dieting and exercise. That always happens to me which is the reason why I no longer do dieting. Exercise for me is walking around the neighborhood. Wishing you a better week ahead.

    You seem to be giving yourself a lot of pampering. You deserve it! Don’t worry too much about your weight. You’re doing just fine. 🙂
