This week I felt really off. I was sluggish and exhausted and therefore didn’t get nearly as much as I had hoped done. I was fighting several nights of bad sleep and headaches and jaw pain and overall just didn’t feel like my usual motivated self. I think the pandemic and winter weather have set in all over again when it comes to feeling not myself. Anyone else experiencing this? I’m hopeful for some good rest this weekend! I have some virtual plans with my family and my friends that I know will boost my spirits.
I hope you enjoy this week’s roundup & have a wonderful weekend!
WHAT I DID THIS WEEK:
- I updated and categorized My Closet in The Shop!
- I was so happy to partner with a favorite brand of mine for the first time: Night! Their new skincare pillowcase is so great (my expectations were exceeded!) and I hope you guys will give it a go! You can use code MEGHAN20 for 20% off your whole order! My Night Pillow is my favorite and I love their silk masks – my go to every day!
- Did you guys see I brought back Let’s Make a Drink on my Instagram!? Hope you’ll join me in making my latest drinks!
- I filmed a fun video on showing my favorite clean makeup swaps for traditional favorites that you may have in your own makeup collection!
- Watched the last movie in the To All The Boys I’ve Loved series and oh wow I loved it so much! Did you watch that series? So heartwarming!

My dearest online friend . . . I am sorry you were not feeling your usual perky self. It happens to all of us. However, I think you got a lot done this week! Applause! Take a bow!
Thank you, Judy!! So sweet of you
Oh gosh, I’ve felt exactly the same way this week! It’s like someone sucked all the energy from me! I think the headaches and jaw issues for me are a combo of this insane pandemic life but also all the storms (I’m in CT). I read once that the atmospheric pressure changes greatly with any storm and can be triggering for some. Hope the weekend lifts your spirits….less than 30 days until “spring”!
YES to this Spring countdown!!! Hope we both feel better STAT!
Mercury came out of retrograde and I am hopeful that will help lift the spirits of the world!
It was a hard week. the upside-down world we live in, stars misaligned and anything personal seemed emotional.
Here’s to a new week!!!!
I’m into the spirit of this comment!!
