Happy 1st September, lovely people!
Can you believe that fall is almost upon us?!
I’m not sure I’m excited about it, to be perfectly honest with you…
I feel like this has been the longest week ever… I’ve been trying to do so many things, all at once without losing my mind. It has been really stressful and I can’t believe that the week is finally ending!
Here’s what happened this week:
Did you know that you can’t access Google’s shopping tab in some countries? I was pretty disappointed as I rely hugely on this feature to find similar fashion outfits and beauty products at the best price. Fortunately, I was able to find out about Windscribe. It’s a free VPN and Adblocker service. You can easily change your location without changing IPs and other nonsense. So, now I’m using it as an extension to Chrome and switch it on whenever I need to use the ‘shopping tab’ on Google! Hooray!
Actually, while I was searching for a certain outfit I found this beautiful long sleeve wrap shirt midi dress by Asos. It’s absolutely gorgeous, so if you’re looking a last-minute summer dress before the fall season comes along, this is it!
I must say I’m becoming quite the chef at home, although my father is constantly complaining! I’ve already made moussaka and baked chicken with potatoes but I’m especially proud of my fried courgettes with yoghurt and garlic sauce! 😊
Since I’m quite depressed and have constant suicidal thoughts, I try to keep really busy so I can get exhausted. On Wednesday I got up and started cleaning at 11 am. I cleaned the terraces, on one of which I had to get rid of a spider nest… ew… I cleaned the doors, the picture frames, removed the dust, cleaned the mirrors, hoovered and mopped the floor. By the time I finished, it was past 8 pm! I almost died, honestly… yet, I still couldn’t sleep!
I met a friend of mine on Thursday for a cake (or two!) and some coffee. I’ve known him since I was in 9th grade I think. He lives 3 minutes away from me and he helped through I very difficult time once. I also helped him get out of a horrible relationship, so we had a lot to catch-up!
On Friday I went to my second visit to the psychiatrist. You can read more about it here!
Yesterday, I met with my uncle to go and visit the Shipka Monument. Unfortunately, it was closed for some car chase event. Thus, we went to visit the Buzludzha Monument. Quite disappointing as it’s falling apart, yet we managed to take some pictures! We then went to surprise my little cousins in their grandparents’ village. I ate the most amazing juicy tomatoes ever! I then came back home, worked a lot on the blog. Couldn’t sleep until 5 am and missed my alarm, so I got up at past 12 pm…
Today I went for a quick workout (well, 2 hours!). Had a very heart-to-heart conversation with my beautiful friend D and came back home to try and work on the blog. My organic search is still dropping and I can’t seem to find another reason except for those two weeks at the beginning of August when I couldn’t post anything. Please keep your fingers crossed that it will get better!
P.S: Before I leave you to enjoy the rest of your weekend, I really want to discuss the situation with the Amazon rainforest.
The Amazon rainforest is referred to as ‘the lungs of the planet’ and it’s been on fire for the past month. It breaks my heart that this is happening. We are killing our planet but there is still hope!
We just need to be proactive!
We need to start doing the things we’re talking about, not just mention them and forget them.
If you want to help, please read this article!
Apart from the obvious donations, there are two things that will take you less than a minute and you can help a lot!
Firstly, you can sign the Greenpeace’s petition telling the Brazilian government to save the Amazon rainforest and protect the lands of indigenous and traditional communities.
Secondly, you can download Ecosia.org – a search engine extension you can add to your browser. It’s absolutely free and for every new 45 searches, you plant a tree! Ecosia use the profit they make from our searches to plant trees where they are needed most. At the moment, Ecosia have planted over 66 million trees and 8 million active users but I think we can make them more! 😊
I hope you enjoy my weekly catch-ups!
See you next Sunday!
