The Instavixen Roundup #13

Falsies, selfie, delicious churros, yummy quesadillas, remembering Barney the Gerbil
Well, I don't know about you but for me, September got off to a pretty disastrous start. Heading to work after a bank holiday is not the one and any notions I had about healthy eating and getting exercise for the first week seemed to just go completely out of the window. I pretty much forgot what a vegetable was this week and how to use my legs became a mystery.

Yesterday was a lovely day though. I had an insanely long lie in and then dragged myself to the hairdressers for a much needed fringe trim (free, hooray!) and then in for a in-dire-need-of eyebrow threading session. I swear, I emerged like a brand new woman. When I was done, I headed home to pop some makeup on before heading to James'. We had planned to have a BBQ but it was such a grey day very little time was actually spent in his lovely garden! The food and company was good though and I had a really good day.

Today, I woke up ready to take on life again. I got out of bed in relatively good time and had a nice healthy smoothie for breakfast, along with some Arbonne Energy Fizz Sticks to ensure I didn't go crawling back into bed again! On a full stomach, I then did my meal plan for the week and headed out to Tesco. Upon arriving home, I proceeded to clean my fridge after putting it off since the day I moved in and then did the rest of my flat, which is now spotless.

Then I had my first driving lesson in three years.

You guys! I DID IT. I finally got my ass back in the driving seat. I've been putting it off for far too long and because of that, my anxiety surrounding the issue got bigger and bigger. However, I had a good chat with my life coach about how I need to learn to drive now and she helped me work through the panic I was feeling and it worked, I finally booked a lesson and today I drove a goddamn car. I even faced multiple roundabouts.

The rest of the week doesn't feel like so much of a failure now I've conquered this. My next one is booked for next week!

CURRENTLY:

Reading: NOTHING, oops! I am on the last book in the Virals series and I really, really don't want it to end so I've kinda just been avoiding downloading it my Kindle and getting started.

Listening To: a lot of Marina and the Diamonds and a bit of Bourbon Crow

Watching: I'm SO happy from Dusk til Dawn is back, because it's SO GOOD. Really not down with this whole "one episode a week" thing though, ew! Also to fill in my time between episodes of that, I've finally got round to season 2 of Bates Motel. Also amazing.

Playing: nothing! I'm a bit bored of video games again now, which is a blessing in disguise because it means my productivity levels go up!

Eating: I've been way, way, way too obsessed with pancakes this week, oops! Good as a treat, yes, but far too sugary for me to have daily!

Loving: early nights! I've needed so much sleep recently.

Looking Forward To: my next driving lesson?! Also hopefully having a very overdue phone call with my mummy tonight <3

How has your week been? Conquered any fears?
