Week Latte #50

ROLLY Mag, Week Latte

Happy 50th Week Latte!

This is a milestone for me, I can’t believe it honestly! And to think, that many of these posts were published in consecutive weeks – pat on the back to past me.

Now they are primarily monthly occurrences, lol so the name ‘week’ latte doesn’t quite means the same but it’s the same vibe, no?

MCo Beauty have launched new brushes that were exclusive to Oz Hair and Beauty at the start of th emonth when I started this post, but as I edit it, it’s actually in store at Woolies, woo! They look very luxe for MCo, and the price tag reflects that. Still affordable, but I’m still keen to get them half price, ya know? They look so fluffy, I’m very tempted to try!

September was an exciting month in the publishing world, with the wonderful women behind @shamelesspodcast and @seize_the_yay all releasing books! So exciting, I had ‘The Space Between’ on preorder, but am yet to pick up Seize the Yay.

The Sephora 15-20% off sale happened at the start of the month, which took me by surprise. I wasn’t emotionally or financially prepared (in my head, I was prepping for the next one to be Black Friday) so I demonstrated great levels of self control and skipped this sale. However, Hannah created a great list of recommended products I’ll certainly refer to next time.

Emma shared this post and so much yes. Lockdown in Victoria was getting the best of me, particularly because I was seeing people in other states doing boomerangs with rosรฉ as if life was normal and was shocked. I actually thought ‘are they posting a memory?’ because that is so far from the reality in Melbourne. And you really can’t understand it unless you lived through it.

I adored Ash Owens’ aesthetic, and have just started reading her blog (late to the party!) This post was beautiful, ‘My Daily Wellness Routine.’

Erika wrote about how she plans to change her life post-quarantine. Such an interesting read, because I’m sure we’ve all learnt something about either ourselves or our way of life thanks to lockdown. I want to write a similar reflective post on this myself.

This episode of Shameless spoke about how friendships are changing during the pandemic. So interesting, and something I had felt but hadn’t considered the long-term effect of. They referenced this article from Man Repeller.

How to build a timeless wardrobe– adding everything to my shopping list!

This blog is a new discovery of mine, love the aesthetic.

Beauty influencers share the products they’ve repurchased!

I am honestly really apprehensive about lockdown being over. I don’t think I remember how to socialise! This post was a good read for making the most of weekends (post lockdown!)

Who else has been too harsh on themselves this year? It’s okay if productivity looks different in this season.

Itโ€™s okay if โ€œproductivityโ€ looks different in this season. Small progress is still progress. You are not weak for needing rest. Iโ€™m writing this note to the one who feels a little overwhelmed right now. You feel the weight of what you *should* be doing, this very second. You keep thinking about what you *could* have done a year ago to have made this season better. I just hope you know it is okay if today didnโ€™t start like yesterday. It is okay if this week felt different than last week. There will be highs and lows here, moments of courage, moments of fear, and through it all you will be free to trust: you do not have to perform or be productive to be worthy of love. I hope you make progress on your projects and dream a new dream or two, but more than that, I hope you are able to see how love has continued to find you, and you still have the chance to give love, even though you feel like youโ€™re not doing enough. I hope you know your post doesnโ€™t have to go viral and your words donโ€™t have to reach everyone before you know what matters is this: you took time to show up with courage, gratitude, and love. Because a year from now, you wonโ€™t remember everything you put on your checklist. You wonโ€™t remember how every single second was spent and every moment you felt the most productive. But you will remember how you felt when you felt loved and seen. You will remember those people you got to show love to, even when it was on the other side of a screen. You will remember that even though you had moments of restlessness, worry, and fear, it took courage, strength, love, and grace to make it another year. You will realize that more than you want to be known for your accomplishments, you want to be known for the way you love. And how, when you choose to love, your love becomes reflected in the life you live, and the work you do. II The second part of this was inspired by todayโ€™s theme of the #MakeThingsApril challenge: โ€œa year from now.โ€ I wrote the first part yesterday. Itโ€™s been taking me longer to write these days, and I am learning to see: thatโ€™s okay. I also didnโ€™t make all the art I wanted to make. Thatโ€™s okay, too. โ™ฅ๏ธ
