The Sunday Edition

The Sunday Edition

Welcome back to another Sunday Edition! I’m writing this from a café in Noosa and I’ve never felt more like an obnoxious writer in my life.

I will say the vibe here is perfect for this kind of post though – maybe this will become a thing from now on? I dunno. The wifi is questionable at best but omg the matcha lattes they do here are incredible, so we might have to make this work.

This week has been a weird one for me. I had a pretty bad experience with a GP on Tuesday and the stress that caused kind of set me off…

But – out of the bad comes the good, and the good from that situation was that so many of you guys reached out via instagram and email to send some support and say really lovely things. Please know that I am forever grateful for how nice you all are. It’s pretty cool that I can write about my swollen ovaries and anxiety on instagram and still have people that want to follow and interact with me lol.

On Wednesday, a huge box of vitamins arrived that Harry ordered for me from iHerb. They’re all PCOS related and so far so good. I mean, it’s only been five days but I’m yet to experience any negative side effects, and yesterday afternoon I actually had enough energy to get out of the house for an hour-long walk {let’s not talk about the failed yoga attempt beforehand} – so that’s gotta be something. I’ll keep you updated on that, as I promised I would on instagram. Who knows? Maybe I’ve found the secret to managing PCOS {omg imagine?!}

This weeks Sunday Edition is jam-packed with articles galore – I’ve still got a heap of brilliant reads that I bookmarked from my exam-related-hiatus that I want to share with you all, but I’m going to try and spread them out over the next few weeks. Nobody likes being bombarded!

I’m also sharing some skincare essentials that I’ve leaned heavily on this week. Periods of extreme stress usually means awful skin for me, but these products make those breakouts clear up within days, and I actually managed to avoid any blind spots which is major. I’m usually rife with them when I’m feeling anxious.

ARTICLES


I’m still not over palm prints, clearly, so this tropical themed party caught my eye almost immediately.

While we’ve been picnicking it up this July, I’ve never actually gone on a solo-picnic? Have any of you? Carrie’s post totally inspired me to give it a try while the weather is this lush.

I trust Victoria so much when it comes to career advice. I feel like she’s done it all, so her latest post on nailing a job interview is brilliant and a must read for everyone.

As someone who is fascinated with Asian culture, I really enjoyed reading this post on Japanese skincare tips. I’ll take another matcha plz!

23 beauty products the SATC women would use now. I’m totally a Carrie – wbu?

Chloe is one of the most stylish fashion bloggers in the game, so her recent post on personal style was so interesting to me!

Gardening tips for beginners {edit: idiots like me} lol.

Does your coffee table need a refresh? If so, you should totes read this post.

Let’s take a moment to appreciate this incredibly beautiful home. I love the industrial aspects – can you believe it used to be a factory?

I always enjoy learning what wellness professionals eat – especially when it comes to getting enough protein. How does your diet match up?

Finally – the post we all needed to read by one of the best chatty writers on the internet, who also happens to be a mum and a blogger. It’s all about food and body image and it’s v refreshing if I do say so myself.

Strawberry and cream cookies. Need I say more?

If everyone could chat as eloquently about menstrual cycles as Ella does, I think the world would be a better place.

Magazine recommendations from the most talented graphic designer to exist? UM YES PLZ.

Luna by Sunday Riley is still the best retinol I’ve used. It clears and smoothes skin almost overnight, and my complexion looks way more youthful come morning.

It can be easy to focus on super cleansing products when you have a breakout, but putting moisture back into the skin and keeping it nourished is equally important. This hyaluronic acid is crazy affordable and plumps skin like a dream.

If you’re having irritation underneath your eyes, can I recommend the Kiehl’s Creamy Avocado Eye Treatment? I started to experience dermatitis last week from using a new eye cream, but as soon as I realised my skin was inflamed, I switched back to this one and the redness went down almost immediately.

Okay, I’ve never been a Carmex fan – mainly because I’ve never truly experienced dry, chapped lips. As Harry works outside most of the day in the elements, his lips have started getting so irritated and chapped. I went to the pharmacy and picked up a pot of Carmex three days ago and he’s already seen a drastic improvement in the look and feel of his lips. I guess the hype surrounding this cult classic is warranted!

It’s easy to feel like you need an expensive cleanser to remove your makeup, but I’m yet to find anything that is as gentle yet effective as Bioderma Micellar Water. Anyone else?
