The Sunday Edition

The Sunday Edition

There may be only three hours left of Sunday, but I really wanted to get this post up today. It’s been an absolute whirlwind of a week and my creature comforts include tea, chocolate and writing, so where better to indulge in a little bit of cosy time? I’m drinking a huge mug of lemongrass and ginger tea and snacking on some cookies and cream chocolate that I picked up from the store today {which isn’t that great to be fair}. Grab yourself a snack and a cuppa and cosy up!

How has your week been? I would really love to know. This week brought some exciting {albeit slightly scary} career changes for me as well as a few little life changes as well. Mainly – my new hair! I ended up getting about 25cm taken off my waist-length hair and I’ve never felt so fresh + chic. I popped a couple of photos up on my insta-stories {follow me: @agirlandgrey} over the weekend, but I am planning on writing a post for the blog soon, so keep an eye out.

Here are a bunch of posts I’ve loved from the past week {or two}. I think there’s something in here for everyone to read over that final cup of tea before bed. Enjoy!

I’ll leave you with this little snippet of it to mull over: There are degrees to how good I can look on any given day. After exfoliating, fake tanning, moisturising, having a blow dry and getting my brow gel ~ just right ~, I can rank pretty highly on the CP scale. This takes time, and a lot of free stuff. If I didn’t have said time or said free stuff, then I would most likely navigate the world at a solid 4, sporting 3-day-old greasy hair, no make-up and an assortment of hormonal spots across my chin (so basically my everyday look at uni). Because of the unique nature of what I do, I’m able to achieve the former a lot easier… if you’re browsing your favourite blogger’s Insta feed and lamenting the fact that you don’t have long, luscious locks, model-esque lashes and a natural Bali glow, remember this: those extensions were for YouTube, those lashes were for the ‘gram and that holiday was a press trip. It’s excess for the purpose of excess – to share and to show – but it’s unrealistic and you’re not meant to keep up…
