Appreciating The Good || Weekly Edit

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you may be familiar with some health issues that have really been getting me down lately. I'll admit that I have been a bit vague on the exact details, but that's just because I don't have any answers for what it is yet. I go into a bit more detail in this post if you'd like to read it. In it, I mention how I think it is dissociation - which is one of the options my doctor recently told me as well - but I am still undergoing some tests. I had an EEG recently to see if it's a type of epilepsy (such as absent seizures) as that is another option as well, but I've still got to wait over a week for the results.

I bring this up as it has been getting me down. I go through stages where I have these "episodes" of mine constantly, and I'm in the middle of a pretty bad cycle of them at the moment. They leave me feeling incredibly drained, confused, exhausted, and often with a headache. One of them occurred before work on Monday, and I felt so sick at work that they sent me home. I then had another one afterwards, and then pretty much slept from that afternoon until Tuesday. It was not fun.

Anyway, I don't like to be negative, so I've been trying extra hard to focus on the good things in life lately. I genuinely love my life and I am not going to let something that is out of my control bring me down. I am doing everything in my power to figure out what's wrong and try to fix it, and that is all I can do. So, here's to soldiering on through the hard times and knowing that brighter days are ahead! What better way to do that than to share some of my favourite recent online finds? Hope you enjoy them! ✨

♡ I have recently discovered Lovepop Cards and have re-fallen in love with pop-up cards all over again. They even have burger, ice cream, AND donut pop-up cards! I need them all 😍

♡ For someone who was never taught any basic survival or adulthood skills, Wife Sense's Teach Me To series is an absolute life-saver. Not many people think to teach people such basic life skills, but I really appreciate it, and thought I'd share it here in case any of you are in the same boat as I was. There are so many topics covered, from changing a tire to setting the table! It's definitely worth a look at.

♡ After getting my first watch last year, I have been DYING to start a collection, and I have completely fallen in love with Klasse 14's gorgeous range. I especially love the colours mustardpowder, and coral. I want one so bad!

♡ In case you missed it: Sushi Roll Cake PopsPizza Sugar Cookies, and a Palm Springs "That Pink Door" Pillow are just a few of the creations I have shared on the blog recently! I am hoping to get a lot more baking and creating done this weekend as well, as my mind is absolutely bursting with ideas!

♡ Something very important to remember regarding Fergie's performance of the American National Anthem.

♡ You should all know by now how much I adore anything that is miniature and/or shaped like food, so naturally Bakery Charms is my new favourite shop. They have necklaces with pendants shaped like some of the best foods out there, such as peanut butter cupschoc chip cookiesrainbow cakes, and pizza. Now, my birthday isn't until September, but there's no harm in getting my presents a little early, right? 😜

♡ Ever since I began purchasing kid's toys to use as decor, I just can't stop, and this wooden pastel baking set is not making it any easier! How adorable is it?!

♡ How to turn a bad day around - even if it's 8pm! This article is filled with so many wonderful, simple, but often overlooked, tricks on how to make any bad day better. It has honestly changed the way I think in my day-to-day life!
