Monday Musings

Hi guys! I’ve decided to start up a new little series on this blog, called Monday Musings. I simply wanted a way to check in with you guys each week, where I can share all the little goings on from my life! I hope you enjoy it, and I’d love you to share with me in the comments how your Monday is going!…


What the weekend consisted of
:

Staying in pyjamas with Gary, reorganising the office, trying to get over a creative slump, and watching a lot of Netflix. It’s felt good to have a really slow weekend to be honest, and take things easy. I’m always rushed off my feet and just doing things; but this weekend I was forced to STOP. It weren’t all bad. But I’m ready to start this week off productively!

Reading:

Jeffrey Deaver ‘The Burning Wire’. I love the Lincoln Rhyme series (so far) and crime/thrillers are always my fave! Definitely try out Deaver’s books if you love them too.

Loving:

The Guilty Feminist podcast. I wrote a blog post a few weeks ago about podcasts, and someone recommend I try The Guilty Feminist. Oh my word, it’s AMAZING. Seriously so funny, interesting, thought-provoking and different from anything else I’ve heard. I have been binge listening to all the episodes and can’t get enough! It’s also introduced me to so many amazing comedians, actresses, activists and writers.

Also loving my new print, I genuinely had fun creating this one and hope you guys love it too! Get yours here.

Hating:

Having the type of personality that can’t relax. Being poor. Being far away from my closest friends.

Can’t stop…:

Asking Gary to braid my hair (he does it so well!) and eating crackers with Philidelphia on.

Listening to:

A lot of Placebo lately. But that’s nothing unusual really I guess.

Watching:

Criminal Minds (as always) and The Confession Tapes (on Netflix). The Confession Tapes are shocking and something I can’t tear my eyes away from! I’m not even finished

Things that have made me smile:

My friend Stacey sent me the cutest little friendship bracelet, as a surprise in the mail and it really made me smile! It hasn’t left my wrist and I genuinely love it! It’s little things that make a huge difference and knowing my friends care even from across the country is amazing.

This week’s plans:

More hiking, ASAP! I don’t mind going out alone, but I want to enjoy what time I have with Gary this week as he isn’t doing his usual day shifts. He would come with me, but he needs new walking shoes; so we have to wait until he gets some. Either way, I’ll get out at least once this week. I love walking through the forest, the valleys, along the river and seeing the views.

Looking forward to:

Seeing all my friends next month for a Halloween night out! Eep. It’ll be fun to be back in Liverpool again.

Inspired by:

I’m struggling for inspiration at the minute (it happens, it sucks); but I am loving the work of Elyse Blackshaw. Bloggers giving me life lately are Whitney and Lima. Both incredibly talented and amazing, so definitely check them out.

 

How’re you guys? 🙂
