less negative, more positive

i want to take this moment to apologise for the rant in my last post. i was feeling so sorry for myself, and that's very unlike me. i want to say that i'm feeling much more positive, and happy :) and i have a lot to be thankful for!

i've decided that thanksgiving is awesome, and we should have something like that in the UK. it seems that thinking about all the things we have to be thankful for is just what is required at this time of year, in the run up to Christmas which can get stressful and a bit too much. so, i've taken the liberty of cooking up a delicious sweet potato pie, and trying out other thanksgivingy foods to celebrate the occasion on this side of the pond.

i've also posted a nice long list of things i'm thankful for on my other blog, Alissa Loves, which includes a massive thank you to all my readers and subscribers! I wouldn't keep posting if you weren't reading and watching, and I love all your amazing comments and encouragement :)

i would love your ideas on what videos you would like to see on my Youtube beauty channel, I'm a bit stumped for things to film, and it really would be awesome to know what you would like to see. i sometimes come up with ideas, but i don't think they'd be interesting or i reckon they're too bizarre... so p.l.e.a.s.e. tell me what you would like?!

blah blah blah

Well, some of you are probably wondering what's happened to me, and where I've been these last couple of weeks. Have I literally dropped off the planet? No. Have I been abducted by aliens? No. It's quite simply just pure, stress induced time wasting.

I've been stressing out about future things, and I'm sure you all know what that's like. It's my November blues. And it's not fun. I need to start looking at all the awesome things I've done this year, rather than worrying about money and life this time next year.

Basically I applied for a job, that I probably haven't got. Well, the woman hasn't called me about it anyway, and I'm sure she would have done by now if she wanted to hire me. The stupid thing is that I am soooo qualified for the job, perhaps overly so? I won't go into details about it, as I'm sure that breaches blogger sharing conduct! But, needless to say, I don't really really need a job, I just wanted it, that's all.

Another thing that's annoying me is the weather. It's practically impossible to feel good about yourself when the clouds are grey and its super windy and wet. Urgh. I did meet up with a friend last weekend for a cupcake making session, which really was awesome, and I am so grateful for that! We baked pink and white butterfly cakes with edible glitter on. Yummy.

The odd thing is that my skin has been insanely amazing, until today when my first stress spot appeared :( i've been cleansing with jurlique, toning with that fancy rose water i bought in the US and moisturising with the cheap but cheerful natural UK brand 2nature. I still love the moisturiser with all of my heart. But nothing can stop stress spots, even a great routine. hmm. oh, and i've been using the bare minerals foundation and concealer...etc...every day that I go out.

I reckon a dog would cheer me up, and a visit to see my grandparents. Have you any November blues busting tips? I hope you do :)

Sorry this has been such a moany post, but I thought I'd let you in on why I haven't really been posting lately. Lots of hugs to all my wonderful readers xoxo
