Happy February everyone, congratulations for surviving all 257 days of January!! January always feels so long, doesn’t it? But now it’s over, we have spring to look forward to and lighter evenings!!
Well 2020 felt like a whole bloody decade crammed into a year, didn’t it? Things were going pretty great, then the first lockdown happened and life hasn’t really been normal since.
August is always a good month for me as there’s usually loads of warm sunny days, I take a couple of weeks off at the end of the month to relax and it’s also my birthday month!!
The end of April/beginning of May didn’t exactly go particularly well for me. I was really struggling with anxiety so I ended up having to phone my GP and got put on Sertraline. The side effects made me feel pretty sick for the first week but luckily I started taking them over the bank holiday weekend (and I’d taken the Monday off which I was super grateful for) so I mostly sat on the sofa watching Murder, She Wrote! Thankfully I’m now starting to feel less sick and less anxious all the time.
Well, what a bloody year these past 3 months have been, right?? This year has felt so unbelievably long already and we’re only at the end of March!! If you’re a blog regular, you might have noticed that I haven’t done a catch-up post since December, so I thought I’d catch you all up on the past three months!
As usual, I’m massively late with my round up! I do have a fab excuse though, J and I discovered that our entire house has started going mouldy, so we’ve been cleaning ALL the things, washing the walls and ceilings, plus installing a ventilation system into the roof space! It’s been taking absolutely ages and we’re not really even halfway through yet 🙁
A few months ago I posted a review about some products that Dermalogica very kindly sent me to test as one of their skinfluencers. One product that, unfortunately, I really didn’t get on with was the Skin Smoothing Cream (a moisturiser).
March has seemed incredibly long and pretty cold (apart from Friday and Saturday last week)!! I’m more than a little excited for April because I’m hoping the weather will start improving and we’ll get some warm sunshine 🙂
For the shortest month of the year, it dragged almost as much as January did; although at least we had the added benefit of some glorious sunshine towards the end!!
One of my 2018 highlights was being contacted by Dermalogica to work as one of their skinfluencers; which means I get to try out some of their products and tell you guys what I think about them!
