Hey! How are you? I've had a ker-azy week, these IV drugs are giving me migraines and playing havoc with my brain! I've just been so tearful and depressed, getting upset about CF things that I don't usually get upset about (or try not to anyway.) I have to keep reminding myself that it's just the meds making me feel this way but even though I know that it doesn't stop me feeling sad which is weird! Then my poor nanny in Ireland was in hospital for a few days, she's home and getting a little better but I really wish she and my Grandad were in England. And Freddydog is really ill, he has allergies and the vets have mucked up his blood tests three times already so we still don't know what the problem is. So he's doped up on meds and is really sad, it's so horrible because he's so happy and playful but at the moment he's not himself. So those are my woes of the week, let's all play violins for me haha!  But I did get to see baby Florrie twice this week and she's so happy she can't help but make you feel happy too <3 I'm very lucky that I have such lovely family and friends. And lovely people online like you, thank you! At the moment this is just a bad blip, life is just like and downs! As long as my nan and Freddy get better then it'll all be good and I'm sure they will be soon.

Here's happier things that happened this week:

I watched | Cavalry, because it was set in Ireland and the scenery reminded me of where my nan and grandad live. It was really good, quite shocking and I loved seeing Chris O'Dowd in a 'serious' role. Always good to see Kelly O'Reilly too, she's so talented.

I bought | A new lipstick, might have been a Chanel one. More on that later though, it's so nice it deserves a post of it's own!

I ate | Five Guys (see above) So good! I went for a cheeseburger with BBQ sauce and I'm still dreaming of it now.

I instagrammed | A few outfit pics and other fashiony things...I still don't have a camera so other than the outfits I shot before it died I haven't been able to take new ones for the blog which sucks! So if you're into ootd's and that follow me here :)

I loved | seenbysaar on Instagram. Gorgeous account, this girl has such amazing style! Prepare to have major shoe envy too.

How's your week been? I hope you're good! Do you have any insta links that you think I might like?



  1. Oh Josie!! I'm sorry you've had a sucky time of it recently. I hope you, your nan and Freddy dog feel better soon! It is just a little blip, it's just all come at once.

    I haven't tried Five Guys yet but I've heard good things about their drinks machine. Yay for baby cuddles! :) Remember that adorable little face when you're feeling down.

  2. Awh, sending your family lots of luck and well wishes in the heath department! Hoping everyone has a super speedy recovery :)

    I haven't seen cavalry, but I have heard good things about it, might do that if the essay procrastination gets too real - and ahh I love seenbysaar's account! All the shoe envy

  3. So true, life is full of ups and downs and sometimes it's okay to let yourself feel a bit rubbishy. I hope everything turns out okay! <3

  4. Aww no, I hope everything starts to get better for you, your nan and Freddydog!
    And I love Florrie's name. She sounds like a cutie just from her name - glad that she cheered you up a bit :) Whenever I feel a bit down or crappy with my Fibro, I always try to think of the little things that cheer me up, or attempt to do something that I know may put a smile on my face.

    I really need to try Five Guys, I've only heard good things about it! And I need to watch Cavalry too, come to think of it...

  5. So sorry to hear you've been having a hard time Josie. It's inevitable sometimes that health issues will toy with our emotions and overall well-being, it's just one of the many sucky parts about having a health condition. I really hope you start to feel better soon, always here if you ever want a chat or rant or anything. *insert blowing kiss emoji here*
    Lots of love xxx

  6. I hope you feel better soon! I tried the five guys veggie sandwich a couple of weeks ago and it was amazing! x
