Hello and welcome to the fourth weekly edit – A post that comes to you every Friday, rounding up the week that was
I go through phases with clothes – I’ll have a period where I receive hardly any parcels then all of a sudden the urge will become too much and I get loads. Maybe it’s a seasonal thing? I’m not sure but at the moment my ASOS list has a lot of stuff on it – Loads of snazzy new gym clothes, some cosy cardigans ready for the upcoming cooler months and some super cute t-shirts. When we know where we are at with the whole moving/do we have to pay bills thing, I might splash out and buy the lot (maybe).
There, I said it. It’s too hot for me. I’m hot, I’m sticky, I’m sweaty and I can’t deal with it anymore. I’ve drank so much water I feel like a camel and I’m surprised my fan hasn’t blown up from over-use. I don’t mind heat when there’s a slight breeze, the sun is actually out (we’ve had 25 degrees + and clouds for the last few days…SMART) or on a weekend but when I’m trying to work and sleep and function I just cannot deal. I do love the sun and I’m grateful for the magnificent summer we are having, I just wish it wasn’t quite so muggy.
This week the New York Times ran an article on actress and founder of lifestyle brand ‘Goop’, Gwyneth Paltrow. Now I’m not the typical Goop reader/buyer – I’m broke, am a sucker for a budget brand and have no interest in jade eggs up the vadge, putting a rose quartz in my water to make it positive or using frog venom as a healing aid – but I did find the interview fascinating and the reporter/writer did a great job on it. It’s a big old read so I’d find a spare, peaceful twenty minutes somewhere to fully absorb it.
