Weekly Round-Up: #38


It’s Weekly Round-Up time! As always this week has flown by and I’ve had a horrible sore throat which was the start of an awful cold – I am now sneezing, coughing and spluttering with every other word. 

Not feeling physically well has also had an impact on my mental and emotional wellbeing and I have had a few wobbles this week with anxiety panic attacks. Not good. My road to recovery is going to be more bumpy than I had first appreciated.

Nails, Nails, Nails

At the start of the week February’s Nailbox graced my door which put a smile on my face.


This months theme was funky retro and if you missed out my full first impressions check out Nailbox February 2016: The Unveiling. 


I also gave myself a much needed manicure pamper using this gorgeous deep blue shade by Ciaté. If you’re interested in finding out more remember to keep checking back as I will post my full review this week.

Food: Rediscovering My Love Of Cooking

As you may or may not know living with anxiety and depression is exhausting. Until I broke down I had never realised how much of myself I had lost and been consumed by how unwell I had become.

I used to thoroughly enjoy cooking and preparing meals from scratch & experimenting with new recipes and styles. Over the past week or so I have re-discovered my love of cooking and creating.


The dish I was most proud of was this absolutely delicious pesto topped baked salmon on a bed of risotto with roasted peppers & carrots. I found a basic risotto recipe online which I loosely followed and then experimented with flavours. I really enjoyed myself and found myself feeling proud of what I had achieved – a feeling I can’t remember experiencing in a long long time.

Creativity: Art & Photography

This week I have also found joy in painting and building my confidence with my DSLR camera. 


I have bought four of these small canvases to make a colourful display in our hall way. This is the first section in a selection of yellow hues – reminiscent of sunny days!

I have also been feeling more confident with my DSLR camera, however I have yet to step outside of the pre-programmed settings on the camera and venture into the world of manual mode – little steps, little steps.


 I hope you have enjoyed me sharing my photographs – what do you think?

I hope you have all had a good week, thanks for reading. Let me know in the comments what you have been up to this week. I love reading and replying to your comments.
