A Week In My Life!

Yes, this post heavily inspired (or, as the kids like to say, completely fucking stolen) from Priya’s week in my life. Her post was genuinely really interesting and I discovered a lot about her – like the fact she’s an artist, Priya where have you been hiding this? – so make sure you check it out. This is coming from someone who usually finds “Week In The Life” posts woefully boring. I don’t care how you have your cereal, Sarah.

Hello, beautiful humans! In my Florence And The Machine Inspired Lookbook post, I touched on the fact that I’ve been insanely busy and not engaging as much as I’d like on this blog. However, you know, just the saying the words probably doesn’t explain all that much. So I decided to, a la Priya, show you what is actually going on in my life!

Let’s go.

SUNDAY

  • Clubbing with Deniz!
  • Booking some stuff for Australia.
  • Sleep. Tidy room a bit. Blog.

Sunday was a fun one; I met up with one of the girls I’m going over to Aus with, Deniz, to go clubbing because . . . well, we both love a bit of clubbing and we get along fabulously. (Wait, let’s just be clear: we met on Saturday night to go clubbing, not Sunday night. That would be weird. Although, it’s London – there’s plenty of places to go clubbing on Sundays too.)

After stumbling back to hers at like 6, we crashed for a few hours then booked some shit for Australia! Currently, our plan is to stay for a month on the Gold Coast, then we’re going to stay in a Workaway for another month and then we’re going to hit Melbourne and try to find farmwork out there. Possibly. We set up our Workaway accounts on Sunday and by Monday one of our stays was accepted! Cannot wait to share it with you, it’s freaking beautiful.

Initially, I’d planned to get home kind of early and get some of my room cleared out. This did not happen, we ordered KFC and watched comedy all day (no regrets) . . . then when I eventually did leave I discovered the trains were all fucking cancelled and a 40 min journey took me 3 hours. (Many regrets.)

MONDAY

  • Tidy room more.
  • Meet Luke, take OOTD photos in lavender field

Monday was a good one! I got a lot of blog work done (still behind on comments and reading, but I’m really just trying to get content written up until October so that I don’t have to worry about writing if I’m busy out in Aus) and met up with my friend, Luke, to visit a lavender farm. It was boring as fuck (the farm, not the outing) but I literally don’t know what we were expecting from a lavender farm.

I forgot my SD card (smart one, Mia.) so no “official” OOTD photos, but the photos worked for a different post anyways, so is all good. Plus, you know, “socialising”.

I’d planned to do the room clearing out that I should have been doing Sunday in the evening (plus some blog work), but Luke ended up coming back to mine and we watched South Park til 9.30. Also – and it’s really sad that I’m excited about this, but that’s my brain for ya – I ordered my Australia travel journal and I’m just so in love with it.

TUESDAY

  • Work. Boo.
  • Tidy room.
  • Film ROMWE video!
  • Meet Leila!

For August, I’m meant to be working 4 days a week, but my boss went on holiday without confirming, so I just decided to wait for her to come back and do two weeks 5 days and two weeks with 3 (it works out the same amount of days). So no work today. Let’s cross out that!

However, because I skipped out on work, my room really needed to be sorted out. (To be fair, I’ve been putting this off because my room is the insulated, may I point out, loft and it is honestly disgustingly hot – especially considering London’s been having 30+ degree weather.) I’ve sorted out some clothes to sell in the bootsale and to friends, now to start packing!

My best friend was back from a few months in Thailand today too – I could literally cry with happiness, I love her so much and have missed the pants off her, but I’m so excited she’s living her best life – so I went to go see her and have a ‘lil catch up.

WEDNESDAY

  • Go to Angel to take photos of Dogs Trust installation for work.
  • Meet Deniz for lunch.

One of the parts of my current job is occasionally going to photograph installations that my company does (office installs); this Wednesday was one of those.

I had to go to Angel (North London, about an hour and a half away from me- and actually where I went to college!), which is conveniently one 5 min tube stop away from where Deniz works so we met up for lunch. Random aside: we did this last week because I was up there then too and got burritos. This week we did burgers. Our friendship just goes from strength to strength.

THURSDAY

  • Work. Boo.
  • Blog.

FRIDAY

  • Work.
  • Blog

A lot of you probably won’t know this about me, but I suffer from pretty frequent headaches and migraines because I’m just pretty sensitive to the world. Things like temperature, air quality, noise, lighting, hydration, food . . . it can all really fuck my head up.

Our office has no air-conditioning (again, kids, it’s 30+ degrees at the moment. For reference, England’s summer months are usually early to mid 20s at most – our country really is not built for this heat) is not the best lit (oh, how I miss all the natural lighting of my old place – and yes, this is insanely picky but it massively affects my headaches) and is pretty loud. I like it, but the hours are longer than my old place and . . . in this heat, it’s just not the best setup for my sensitive ass self.

None of this is to complain, it’s just to kind of explain that being at work generally leaves me with a headache by the end of the day, so when I get home it’s “eat, check emails, spend some time drifting in and out of our living room and talking to my parents, resign myself to the fact I can’t concentrate and go to bed”.

SATURDAY

  • Tattoo!
  • Blog

Yay! I finally got some time to actually sit down and blog (guys, I really have been trying but . . . your bitch is busy) in the morning, then in the afternoon I met my friend Luke, got my old phone’s screen fixed (so I can sell it) and went to get my new tattoo! I won’t talk too much about it, because I have a whole post coming up on it, but I’m a happy bunny.

All in all, this was a good week! I didn’t quite get to see as many people as I’d planned because I was just knocked out after work, but there’s still some time left. Plus, I’m having a big leaving party so I can just see ’em all then.

Okay, well, I don’t really know how to end this post. It didn’t really add any value to any of your lives; I can’t imagine it was particularly entertaining. I hope you derived some sort of sick pleasure from watching me live my inane London life? (Although, I might do one or two of these when I’m in Australia so we can see what the contrast is like!) Did you enjoy this post? How about the video? Let me know your thoughts down below!

  1. Aaah this is so fun to read. You with the lavender are just gorgeous! and why i thought I’m the only one who is sensitive to the world…to my surrounds of noise, temperature and even a little dots of light lol. And I love your new tattoo! can’t wait to read about it soon

    1. Thank you lovely 🙂 And oh gosh, does all that affect you too? It’s bloody irritating! Thank you so much, I can’t wait for the post to go up so you can read it 🙂 <3

        Haha yay thank you!!!

  3. H.A.Ivy – I mean, to be frank with you do people actually read these? Undecided. I do know it's an excellent thing to write when you're trying to procrastinate from literally anything else. Technically I'm supposed to write on these for another obligation but you know what-we'll procrastinate on that one too. Mainly because people will be reading and judging that one. Though if you've gotten this far it's probably because you're genuinely hoping to find information about me, and to put it simply, there's not much to tell. I'm a fairly average person who prefers to have panic attacks about small things, and then when something's big I say "ah screw it" and move on with my life because who has time to dwell, not me that's who. Not with college and other stressful life requirements like not procrastinating on things. But in all seriousness, if you have made it this far, kudos to you. I'm H.A.Ivy, or Ivy, or Hazi or random girl that should shut up. I'm old (there's still a "teen" slapped after my age number so I'll let you figure it out), I enjoy writing, playing video games, and annoying my family. And of course, my ultimate goal is to take over the world, after I finish whatever this is.

    I get really bad headaches as well at the minute. The heat just makes me so sleepy too, but I can’t complain because the UK has actually had a summer! This was a nice post. I wish I had more friends nearby me to go to lunch with. I’m starting a new job next week, but it’s away from everyone I know. xxx

    1. Ughhh it sucks, right? And this is true! Productivity has taken a hit, but my vitamin d has had a boost! Thanks girly 🙂 xx

    Hannah says:

    It sounds like you had a lovely week. I totally agree about the lavendar fields but they look so cute! xx

    1. I did actually! Not quite as productive as I’d have liked though 🙁 And yeah like I don’t know what I expected…but I was not entertained xx

  12. LOVED THIS LOVE YOU OMG!!! Girl, first of all. That video. I will forever be in love with your YouTube vids whether it be the fonts you use, the music you put in or the way you act so comfortable in front of the camera, I fkn wish! Secondly, I love the tattoo. So much. I started screaming the chorus in my head when I saw it over on Instagram and am now super duper jealous because I’ve been wanting to get a new one done since practically a week after getting my last two, which is a little while. And um…YES WEEK IN MY LIFE IN AUS!!N It’ll be so interesting to see what you get up to while you’re here!! I’m so keen for all this scheduled content btw, you’re a goddess xxx

    1. THANK YOU SO MUCH PRIYA, YA BABE! I’m so glad you enjoyed because…like i literally stole the idea off you x_x And awww that means so much, I always think of myself as painfully awkward on camera so I’m glad you like em! YAAAAAAS FOR RENT, i’m surprised how many people instantly got it and it’s given me faith in humanity tbh. plus dw, i will fully be the influence to getting you that next tattoo when I’m out there 😉 THANK YOU BBY xxxx

  13. K.M. Sutton – I am a country girl living on the Upper East Side of the concrete jungle. My friends call me a modern day Renaissance woman. I have dabbled in a little bit of everything, from being a yoga instructor to holistic chef, to skating coach, to glorified nanny, to student. I am a self admitted coffee junkie. A wannabe mermaid. A wanderluster who dreams of other countries. A fashionista who really does need a bigger bank account. But most important of all, I dream of living in a bungalow by the ocean and being a published writer (in style of course) sipping coffee in the morning and a martini in the evening. I love to meet my readers, so feel free to comment or email me. Happy reading!
    K.M. Sutton says:

    I LOVED this! And it was NOT boring at all! I am OBSESSED with your new tattoo I love it so much! I really want a tattoo or a piercing…or both 🙂 <3

  14. I find it really interesting to read I hope you make more posts like this in Australia. I hope you have an amazing time. I also liked the video and loved the lavender field My room is always messy so I understand you. I hope you also feel better soon. I also got headaches of the heatwave here in Spain. Fortunately, it’s gone. In Holland it was also hot and that country is also so not made for heat. I’m also sensitive for everything. I also love your tattoo so much omg can’t wait for your post about it.

    1. Awww thank you so much lovely girl <3 I will definitely make posts like this so that you can see what we get up to 🙂 And omg it's such a struggle *sigh* I'm glad you're feeling better love! x

    Wow this was so much fun to read and a great idea!!
    I can’t wait to read the tattoo story, I always find tattoos so interesting

    1. Thank you so much – I can’t claim credit for the idea though, I nicked it off priya 😉 Post goes up on the 14th about the tattoo lovely <3

  16. I love “Week in my Life” posts even if it’s about how Sarah has her cereal LOL.

    I’ve never heard of Workaway but that’s amazing your request was approved! Can’t wait to see where you’ll be staying. Also farmwork?! That sounds so fun! It’s awesome that you & Deniz are already getting along so well! ♡

    I loved this post, Mia! Looking forward to the post on your tattoo! ♡

    1. I have to be really invested in the blog author to enjoy them! My favourite bloggers I’m like “yes, yes I want to know everytihing you get up to” … but otherwise they just don’t do much for me 🙁

      Honestly, Hunida, I hadn’t either but it’s absolutely AMAZING. It connects you to people willing to host you and feed you for free in exchange for work (so we do two hours a day in bellingen). And I know, I kinda thought I’d end up just being roommates with them instead of friends, so I’m really happy we get along so well!

      Thanks for reading lovely! <3

  17. I love this so much!! May have to steal this idea off you/Priya, I honestly love finding out what people get up to day to day. You’ve had such a busy week and I looove your new tattoo, I can’t wait to read the story behind it, I’ve been wanting to get a tattoo for so long I’ve just got to pluck up the courage! Amazing post as per <3 <3

    1. Thank you so much! And definitely do, I’d be v v curious to see what you get up to 😀 Honestly, it wasn’t as busy as normal but I’m glad I had a few things to blog about. And oooooooh what do you want to get? I warn you, they’re addictive as hell! <3 <3

    It’s my dream to find a lavender field like that! Gorgeous your tattoo is stellar as well, can’t wait to hear more about it

    1. I’m not sure where you live, but you could try “lavender fields near me” in Google maps (that’s what we did and we were actually really surprised by how many there were!) & thank you lovely! x

    Love this post. I’ve always wanted to do something like this because Ryland Adams constantly does “X for a week” on YT lol. But this was fun to read. And so cool that there’s a lavender farm near you too, yes they’re a little boring, but for me the picking was the fun part and taking in the scent.
    Also, loving the tattoo!

    1. Thanks girly 🙂 And omg I love Ryland. And see the one we went to you weren’t allowed to pick any lavender so it was just….walking… x

        No problem. And ah, well that totally sucks!! I don’t think I would have enjoyed it either if I wasn’t allowed to pick some lol.
