Week in Photos - 3rd September 2017

The past week has been crazy busy, so I’m feeling pretty wiped out at the moment. I’ve been doing some work experience (more of which I will go into later on), so that has been quite hard with my health. And then I’ve also had my three-month review at Stanmore, which brought up a lot of mixed emotions. Thankfully, this weekend has been a lot quieter, so I’ve had some time to take it easy and rest. I can’t quite believe we’re in September now. It still feels like it was only yesterday that I had my last day at university before the summer holidays. They just seem to have flown past and now it’s only a couple of weeks before I start my third and final year – eek!

I’ve been signed up with Savvy Circle for a few years now and it’s always exciting when you get to do product reviews! This time I’ve been incredibly lucky to receive all of these bottles of shampoo and conditioner from the new Herbal Essences bio:renew range. They smell amazing and I’m excited to get trying them all!

That time of the month always feels pretty darn crappy. But thankfully Pink Parcel has my back and makes life a little bit better. I always get excited when my box arrives; as the products they pick are consistently spot on. And this month was no different. It will be great to try out everything.

I saw this quote on a biscuit tin when I went shopping with my Mum, and I instantly felt a connection to it! Biscuits can definitely fill that missing gap in your life.

I absolutely love these flowers that I treated myself to from Tesco - the bright colours really cheer me up. I don’t think I’ve had irises before in an arrangement, but I’ll definitely be getting them again. They’re so pretty.

I spent Bank Holiday Monday over at Richard and Lisa’s with my Mum and Dad, helping them with a bit of gardening. Well, when I say helping, I sat on the floor and did some weeding – that’s about as far as my skills (and energy) will go! While us girls were out in the garden, my Dad and Richard were doing some DIY jobs in the house. It was nice to spend time with them and also lovely to see the bunnies, Benjie and Beatrix. They were so cute all snuggled up together.

I think my life is now complete – I’ve managed to get my hands on my first Bath and Bodyworks candle! And there’s a couple more too. I can understand what all the hype is about now – I can’t wait to burn this and feel all autumnal. And the lid is so pretty – I think I’ll be using it as a coaster once I’ve burnt the candle. Please come to the UK soon Bath and Bodyworks!

So, as I mentioned, this week I was lucky enough to do some work experience with Happiful Magazine. It’s been hard managing it with my health and I’m feeling pretty wiped out now, but I had such a good time! Everyone was so lovely and it was great working on a magazine where I really believe in the message it’s communicating (the whole magazine is based around mental health and wellness). I definitely came away feeling like I’d found a job I would love to do. I’m hoping to go back for a bit more experience soon! This is the newest magazine, featuring the lovely Denise Welch – I’d definitely recommend getting a copy.

I’m very proud of my ‘little’ brother, Richard, for graduating as a fully-fledged paramedic on Friday! Unfortunately, I was up in London for a day at Stanmore Hospital, so my Dad and I couldn’t make it, but my Mum sent me this lovely photo of Richard and Lisa.

I went to the hairdressers yesterday for a treatment and haircut, and while I was there I read some more of this book by Ruby Wax. It’s very interesting so far.

These are the other two Bath and Bodyworks candles I treated myself to. I’m definitely ready for autumn now and am a little bit too excited about them releasing their Christmas candles. Sorry for mentioning the ‘C’ word already!

I think I also got a bit too excited when I found the Moana DVD with limited edition shiny cover in Tesco recently. After not being able to see it in the cinema, my friend, Charlie, lent me her copy, but then I picked this up the following day. I can’t wait to finally watch it!

You can check out my YouTube channel here, where I have recently uploaded a few new videos (and hope to continue doing!)

I’m also trying to post on Snapchat a bit more, so if you fancy following me, my username is Jennycole44.

If you don’t already, please give me a follow on Bloglovin here - I can’t believe I’ve managed to hit 800 followers now! Thank you all so much. I’m planning a giveaway very soon!

I also want to apologise for the slightly shabby state of my blog at the moment. I’ve had problems after Photobucket changed their terms, but am gradually sorting things out and hope to also have a new layout fairly soon.

What have you been up to this week? I always enjoy hearing about your news and adventures!
