VLOG: MY RECENT TRIP TO IKEA WEMBLEY & SOME MONDAY MOTIVATION
It's Monday evening and you, sunshine, have made it to another week! (and another blog post- WOO). I always feel such a sense of accomplishment when making it through another Monday still smiling and happy as always. But to be fair I'm not really the miserable type when it comes to Monday's or weekdays and generally, I love the fresh energy of a new week.
Last week, I spent most of the time feeling a little under the weather, so I'm also grateful to be feeling like my usual perky self. But I also had some great moments throughout the week, like the arrival of my new bed (which I'll show you in a future post), a fab gym sesh with my mumma and sister, and discussing some potential new opportunities (fingers crossed they come through).
Anyway, I thought I'd share a #MONDAYMOTIVATION post with you all before getting into my little IKEA haul, because I love little reminders to make sure I'm living and expressing my full potential and if I could inspire just one person to feel that way I'd do it over and over again...
So this weeks' inspirational words are:
Ain't that the truth, hunnay! YOU are entirely up to YOU; noone else. Yet, we allow the words, attitudes, expressions, feelings and a whole bunch of other external sh*t influence the way we feel; not only about ourselves, but sometimes the way we feel about life in general.
My advice to anyone feeling out of depth with themselves, or current circumstances, is to look within and remind yourself of your power... NOW GO ON DUST YOUR SHOULDERS OFF *Jay Z voice*
I thought I'd share the sexy new additions to my home, and yes I did just use the word SEXY to describe the new IKEA products I bought a few weeks ago. You'll understand why!
If you know me, you know I pretty much end up at Ikea at any given chance, and most definitely every time I book leave at work. Don't ask me how or why because it's as if some force takes over me and convinces me that I NEED to be there... and it's pretty ridiculous when you go so often that you know exactly where to find every product, what popups are where and even...wait for it... most of the menu in the cafe; Oops!
This time around I did have some specific items in mind when going to shop, like a new dinner set, a storage unit and some cushions. Did I end up with any of it? NOPE! Well, to be fair I did purchase some new bowls and side plates, so I wasn't totally out.
Here's a quick look at how I spent some of my time in Ikea and what I took home with me. I've linked all the items featured in the video below.
