Two months captured with instagram

1. The stress of my marriage ending caused my skin to go crazy. I have pretty temperamental skin at the best of times and in the recent months I've turned to REN to help me. I'm putting the condition of my skin post break up totally down to them, it's so much better. 2. Mum's stew with champagne to celebrate my brother's house move. 3. My new bedroom set up. Got home from work one day to find a bed in my bedroom (I slept on the floor on a mattress for the first month at my parent's), the next night I got home to find fairy lights, new bedding and Lush bath bombs on my bed. I'm being well taken care of. 4. First pay day post split. I did what any self respecting woman would do and spent it on pretty dresses. 5. Started trying to take more care of myself, including getting out some gorgeous nail colour. 6. The best way to give my brain a break is to either watch an excessive amount of TV or to read, Harry Potter being my book of choice.

7. Started making travel plans. Currently pondering a trip to Dubai in 2014. 8. A girl can never have too many dresses, surely? 9. New purchases, the toner and foundation have become favourites straight away. 10. More pay day purchases. I've not really been able to wear perfume for a few years as my ex is ridiculously allergic to scents, unfortunately I'm not able to wear my two favourite perfumes (Alien and Coco Mademoiselle) as I associate them with happier times - the latter was my 'wedding perfume', I adore it but it's too soon. Hopefully I'll reach a stage where I can smell it again without my heart aching. 11. I was having a very mopey day so my dad suggested going to the Newport Wetlands to watch the mummuration, I'm so glad I went. If you get the chance to go and watch the starlings - go! 12. Sunset at the Wetlands.

13. Part of trying to get back to being me is colouring therapy. It was suggested in a book I've been reading and it definitely helps, especially when my mind is stuck on a negative loop of thinking. 14. On what would have been my third wedding anniversary the girls in work took me for lunch, I consumed the 'small' burger with fries. It was the size of my head. It was very good. 15. Not content with eating lots of food for lunch that day, I visited a friend who I used to work with along with another friend and her baby. She had decorated her house for Christmas early for us, it was a lovely night. 16. I don't work in the main uni building for our school so sadly I don't get to see this beauty of a Christmas tree everyday so this was a treat. 17. Hunters on for a muddy trip to the Ty Cerrig Christmas Tree Farm. 18. Me with our tree. I'll be doing a proper post about our trip to Ty Cerrig in the next few days.
