The Instavixen Roundup #9

Big love for Genghis, my Wednesday 13 tickets arrived, more Genghis love, delicious lunch times, Arbonne delivery and a gorgeous meal featuring my beloved Chinese dumplings
Well, what a week it has been! I started July in a bit of a mess, who even knows why, but I suddenly went into a downward spiral again; my mental health was poor and any thoughts of self care and healthy living just went totally out of the window. And then, a strange thing happened. I woke up on Monday morning and I felt different. For the first time in god knows how long, I got out of bed when my alarm went off and actually had a shower and washed my hair before work. I felt ready to change, ready to shift.

By Wednesday, I had turned a corner. I had a Skype call with my life coach that evening and something just clicked for me during that call. It was honestly like all of a sudden, I had totally had enough of the person I had become and I decided to change. I was ready to stop making excuses for why things weren't happening for me and just start living the kind of life I want.

I am now firmly back into the routine of eating healthily, getting exercise, going to roller derby, spending my time in ways that I actually enjoy and being a happy young lady. And I feel good. I don't feel scared or trapped any more, I feel powerful and capable. No I haven't got everything I want overnight or anything like that but I think I've finally realised that everything I do want is well within my reach and the only thing that ever stops me reaching out and taking them is myself.

Long may this feeling continue!

CURRENTLY: 

Reading: You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay (yeah, still haha)

Listening To: Marina and the Diamonds to celebrate the fact I finally have tickets to go see her as well as a bit of Wednesday 13, ofc

Watching: I finally finished watching Buffy in its entirety AGAIN this week and oh man, there were tears. I love that show so much. Now I'm getting the last two seasons of Charmed out of the way before I start something new. I also finished watching Vikings with the boyfriend which I am devastated about, I love that show and can't wait for the next series.

Planning: Holidays!

Lusting After: this dress but it's sold out! I need it for my stepsister's wedding!

Obsessed With: Coconut water and Chinese style dumplings (as demonstrated above)

Loving: having a whole boat load of Arbonne nutrition back in my life again. Seriously so good! It makes a difference from day one.

Looking Forward To: getting stuck in with a project I'm working on, seeing what the week ahead in store has for me, moving into my own flat!

I hope your week has been as lovely as mine xoxo
