4 things that happened this week

My favorite Primark bag broke. It had just been promoted regular gym bag. Boo. Whatever bag shall I use now?

Jaja, it’s only a seam, but still. That handle is no good to me now.

I was served lots of great vegan food. We had some sort of work conference/lecture + workshop about stress, performance and recovery. It was, surprisingly, really good. The lecturer talked all about the hormones, what happens to the body when you’re stressed, how you should trust your body and not start chugging down lots of water because that’s supposedly healthy—your body will tell you when you need water, it’s called thirst, that yoga and meditation really isn’t necessary—folding the laundry could be just the thing to give you that mental recovery you need. As I was saying, it was really good.

Anyway.

The venue served some v. decent vegan food, despite not being specialized on vegans at all.

Pulled vego, apple and fennel salad, and some absolutely lovely carrot puree. And topped with some greens! Makes the eye happy too.

My foundation started behaving in a really weird way. I’d just started using the Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation, I was quite pleased. It played really well with the Urban Decay Self-Adjusting Complexion Primer, which was just a disaster combined with my previous foundation; it just seemed to enhance the appearance of pores, and who needs that? With the Naked Skin though, while the primer is still not a perfect match for me, it’s zero percent bad. Also, the shade of the foundation was a good match for me, and I’m loving the medium coverage. I can even apply it with a damp sponge, contrary to popular belief. What more could you ask of a foundation?

But then on Tuesday it suddenly started looking beyond patchy. So terrible wearing no foundation was a better option.

Turns out, it doesn’t work with the serum from Codage at all. That’s the downside of indulging in skincare, if something is wrong you can’t for sure say which of all the products are not agreeing. Could be any number, any combination, or the type of application, even using too much or too little of something.

What was good in all this, was that in the process of trouble-shooting I realized that introducing a weekly hydrating mask into my routine is necessary. This is still something I struggle with; because I’m combination on the oily side, adding hydration strikes me as counterintuitive. Even if I know we all need some extra hydration this time of year, still think it can’t possibly apply to me. (Because I’m special, apparently.)

Got myself a mask from No7 without doing any research first. We’ll see how that works out.

Friday workout was cancelled second week in a row. Got to go home early. And had a valid excuse to not go to the gym. Should be happy.

I was not happy.

I was very unhappy.

Super unhappy.

Funny thing: I used to hate the Friday workout class. But exactly two weeks ago I noted that it had suddenly gone from detestable to my favorite class of the week. Should not have as much as thought it. Jinxed it for sure.

  1. That swirly shape of the product in the No7 mask would be enough for me to buy it! Hopefully it will work out for you, it has mostly good reviews!
