Weekly Reflect // #65

It's time to take a minute to reflect on the past week!

Pink Christmas tree

This week . . .

. . . we welcomed in my favourite month of the year, December! I absolutely love how much more festive the atmosphere is compared to the week before. Advent calendar chocolate is still as good as ever and I've been trying my best to keep up with everyone who's doing Vlogmas & Blogmas. Which seems to be a lot of people this year!

The start of the week was pretty quiet for me although I did film a new video for my channel! It was actually my first time applying makeup on camera and I did the five product face makeup challenge - did you see it? It was fun to try something new so let me know what you'd like to see next!

Then on Thursday it was my 19th birthday! I had a lovely day and I'm so grateful for all the kind birthday wishes I received. That night we had the grand switch on of the Christmas tree in our garden's lights which, if you saw this video on my Instagram, you'll know I was very happy about!

My family and I went out for a meal on Friday night. We all had lots of laughs and tasty food together so it was the ideal way the celebrate!

Burger & chips

Although I was pretty exhausted the morning after and probably shouldn't have, I decided I wasn't going to let my illness stop me from going into town to have a catch up with my good friend Roberta. We can't seem to go half an hour without absolutely cracking up with laughter so it was just what I needed! I also managed to do a little bit of shopping so I intend to film a charity shop/Primark haul as soon as I can.

I also feel like I need to mention how delicious the orange spiced latte from Caffe Nero is - I tried it for the first time yesterday and it was nothing short of divine. If you like Terry's chocolate oranges, coffee & cinnamon you will love it!

After a magnificent but draining couple of days, I intend to spend my Sunday relaxing as much as I possibly can. This was definitely one of the best weeks I've had in a while!

So that was my week. Get involved in the comments below and let me know what you got up to!

How was your week?
