My Week in Pictures #2

Today is a lazy Saturday, where I'm sitting inside drinking tea and catching up on some scrapbooking, episodes of Aquarius, and of course watching the Rugby World Cup.

But it's been a busy week. And this weekend's break is much needed. Take a look back at my week in pictures: 

Sunday:
On Sunday I finally committed and moved to .com! I am officially ibelieveinromeo.com
It feels like a really big deal for me and my blog to pay for my own domain name and dedicate financially to the blog. 



Monday:

Monday was a much needed Mindful day, with lots of fun colouring in. I felt stressed, exhausted, and just not myself. I needed to work out my stress in Zumba, and then spending an hour relaxing with my markers. This pattern from 'My Gorgeous Colouring Book for Grown Ups' was my favourite.

Tuesday:
Tuesday was my night off, so I changed all my computer backgrounds to Van Gogh art pieces to get me (even more) excited about my December holiday, and lit my Yankee Candle to help me relax.

Wednesday:
It was Spanish mail day for me on Wednesday, where I got this classy envelope (with a birthday card inside) off to my bestie overseas. 



Thursday:
On Thursdays we wear black. Or at least I do. It was also a day where I felt confident and happy, and a massive change from Monday's very poor mental health day.

Friday:
Niall Breslin has been everywhere lately talking about his new book. Lucky me though, because I won a copy from a Twitter competition last week, and I haven't been able to put it down since it arrived on Monday. It kept me company, and often teary eyed, on the bus journey from Dublin.


Saturday:
I started off my morning with some races and ball fetching in the garden. Nothing like your best friend to get you outside and active. 


Bonus photo! 
I found this lovely Spectre ad in last weekend's papers, and couldn't resist popping it on my noticeboard! Can't wait until October 26th!

What have you been up to this week?

  12. I like the idea of a mindful day. I bought a colouring in book, but have yet to get started with it. Perhaps I will take a leaf from your book on this (pardon the awful pun!)

    1. Haha, you can't beat a good pun though! I really enjoy colouring in the evenings before bed (not every evening, but when I've some spare time). It's a great way to unwind

  13. Congratulations on making the step to .com, it does feel pretty good, doesn't it? I'm not sure I would have the patience to do one of those colouring in books, too fiddly for my liking!

    1. He really has Sandra, and the book has been a fantastic read too. It really normalizes mental illness to have such a well known face write about it so openly and eloquently x
