Since I last blogged me and the boyf managed to assemble the Sofa Bed….We didn’t argue once! It felt like a modern day miracle after choosing it nearly broke us! I’ve also been to the doctors. Ironically my Doctor was sick, so I had to see a different one. I couldn’t really talk as openly with her as I normally would be able to with my regular doctor, but she was very helpful nonetheless. She decided it was time for me to increase the dosage of my antidepressants from 15mg to 30mg. Her reason for this was that it may improve my sleeping and my overall mental health. I agreed as I am definitely up for that. Time will tell, we will have to see how it goes.
Today I got up and got ready. I put on today’s challenge lipstick, Mercy by Kat Von D and then made my way into town as I needed to pick up a few bits and pieces. Mercy is so hydrating to wear and has great colour pay-off. I love how it’s metallic with little flexes of glitter running through it, but it doesn’t feel chunky on my lips. It’s a sultry, berry shade and I think it would suit any skin tone. It retails for £17.00 on line at Debenhams.
Whilst in town I popped into the place where I used to work. I left in December of last year, partly to try and figure out what I want to be when I grow up and partly because my mental health had started effecting my physical health…..this is quite common, I’m told. I could barely stand without being in chronic pain. Thankfully I have improved massively since. I firstly lost over a stone in weight by going to the gym and swimming regularly, secondly I had therapy and became more mindful of what I eat in a day. So far so good.
The girls I used to work with were really sweet when they saw me and complimented me on how shiny my hair looked. On my walk home a drunk older guy called me gorgeous. I was getting all the complements today and embracing them instead of shying away from them like I usually do. Although I am currently working on generating my own self-esteem, I’ve learnt it’s still really nice once in a while to get compliments. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t give me a little boost, and in the case of the drunk older guy, it also made me laugh a lot! Which was an added bonus!
Mercy lasted on my lips well, for around about 3 hours. I took it off just before I ate my tea. My boyf was out for the evening Climbing so I was home alone. I read, watched some of my fav YouTubers and did a little bit of writing. I had the TV on in the back ground muted. I looked at it once just before bed, and Naked Attraction was on. I left the sound off and giggled at it like a teenager would, then curiosity got the better of me and I unmuted the TV.
I thought previously when I’d heard about this programme that I would be completely mortified at how many penis’s (peni?) were on show but, to be honest, they didn’t bother me half as much as the lack of pubic hair surrounding one guy’s appendage. That really alarmed me! Thankfully, normalcy was restored as the girl who was picking the guys came out naked, revealing her ample bush. Good for her!!!!
This post is a dedication to all the wonderful peeps I used to work with at my old job. You are all still very dear to me and I miss you loads. x
