♡ I love, love, LOVE Allure's article on no longer using the term "anti-ageing". Language is such an influential thing and the more we are aware of the words we use and what they mean, the better!
♡ I honestly have no words for all the things that have been happening in the world recently. I feel helpless over here in Australia; it's honestly like we're all just watching a ticking time bomb, and with every second that goes passed, things keep getting worse. Kelly from Studio DIY shared some great links and resources in her latest weekend post that will do more helps than I can.
♡ Here's a cute video to put a smile on your face during the hard times, because you deserve a laugh.
♡ Erica from Coming Up Roses looks super cute in this fabulous and important t-shirt, and shares some much needed wisdom with us all.
♡ This person's thoughts about Rachel and Joey's relationship in Friends was quite interesting to read. I definitely think I'm going to notice Joey's character development a lot more next time I watch the show.
♡ I decided to watch Rick & Morty from the start since everyone seems to love it. I was expecting it to be a dumb, immature humour, but it's so much more than that. All the dysfunctional relationships in the family - Rick's drinking and selfishness especially - are so heart-wrenching to watch, but I just can't stop. I refuse to believe that he doesn't care about Morty at all, but it really hurts seeing Morty be let down time and time again!
♡ I've been struggling with my trichotillomania particularly bad lately. Unlike most cases, mine is almost completely subconscious and I don't often realise I'm doing it until it's too late. It comes and goes - sometimes I don't do it for ages, and then I suddenly can't stop - but I really don't understand why it's so bad at the moment. I'm really happy with my life and everything in it, yet parts of my anxiety still act up and affect my daily life. It really just goes to show that mental illnesses are completely random, and can affect anyone - whether they have a "perfect" life or not.
♡ These DIY desk nameplates by Aww Sam are so fun and cute! I've added them to my DIY-projects-to-do list. I think I'll make mine say "The Small Adventurer", but I haven't quite decided yet!
♡ It may only be August, but I am getting so excited about Christmas, and just December in general. I know time is a human concept, but I still find great significance in ending one year and beginning another. It's a great time to look back over the last 12 months and note down what you liked and what you didn't, and what you would like to change for next year. Plus I'm just a sucker for anything to do with Christmas!
Until next time,
