Neck Pains & Prepping for Christmas…

Unfortunately I have been away from the blog due to health reasons…and work.

I thought I will get on here and let you all in on what has been happening with me since I have been quite quiet lately. I have recently been having neck issues that have been causing a lot of problems especially with my day to day and it has gotten worse the past week.

About 2 weeks ago I was working out with my personal trainer and my left neck muscle was stiffer than usual. I couldnt sleep and so I decided to see a Naprapat for the first time. I am not one for the sound of cracking nor am I comfortable being in pain…who is? Anyway, after my first visit, as you can imagine, I was still in quite a bit of pain. It got better then.. it got worse. So I went back for a second visit and I am still healing from it.

Many of you know I work in a store but not many of you know that I lift quite a bit behind the scenes and during this time of year, that means Christmas. Christmas boxes, Christmas packaging, heavy Christmas decorations for the store… This in combination with my neck problem has been both mentally and physically draining.

I am still not sleeping full nights and I am still in a tad bit of pain when moving or lifting things but I am feeling better and am even taking a weekend away so I hope that things will get back to normal soon. Thats the update. I have a number of posts I am behind on but I will try to write up once I am feeling better.

Ps. The photo was from a few weeks back… ;)

The Last week of September * Summing up Week 39

It has been a very long week, so long that it has been a full on blur but fun nonetheless. I thought that it has been a hot minute since I spoke a bit about me and what I do when I am free and/or what’s been going on… (which also of course includes trying to catch up on posts haha!)

The Week

I have been hitting the gym early mornings and started my week with getting the worse cramp in my left leg (which after a week I am still recovering from!) Otherwise, my week starts and ends with work work and more work! I am very happy with my job and coworkers so I look forward to coming in every day, despite that I have been extremely exhausted.

I spent Wednesday evening at L’OréalLuxe with my coworkers to learn more about the new products. A few key products I really cannot wait to try is the Yves Saint Laurent Encre De Peau All Hours Primer, Concealer and Foundation. Also, I am in love with the Y for men fragrance!

The Weekend

FINALLY A FREE WEEKEND!! Whaaa! I has been forever since I could actually say that I had literally nothing planned AND the bf was home so we could spend time together!

The weekend was eventful even though I thought I would try to stay at home and just lounge on the couch..but…we took ourselves into the city and ate at La Tentazione, a quaint Italian place that we were lucky to get a table at.

After, we decided on seeing the Book of Mormon (which I have already seen but still a great musical!) I, very spontaneously, booked two seats and hoped for the best that they were good enough to see the show. It didn’t disappoint!

Sunday was spent getting some groceries and getting things ready for the next week. I even replanted our plant that has been having issues with. All in all, a good end of September. I cannot wait for the real fall to kick in – the changing of the leaves and HALLOWEEN!!

What are you looking most forward to this autumn season?

Coming back to a Winning Concept! * Find me at Sephora…Again!

Yes, you read correctly! I am boomerang-ing back to Sephora.
/Ja, du läser rätt! Jag är boomerang-ar tillbaka till Sephora.

Oh…remember this post a year ago? Well. I will be returning to a job and company that I love but had to leave behind (for a short while). Apparently this is a trend I am happy it is trending! In August you will find THIS boomerang employee back at Sephora with an extra spring in her step.
/Åh … kom ihåg det här inlägget för ett år sedan? Well. Jag kommer att återvända till ett jobb och ett företag som jag älskar men var tvungen att lämna (ett tag). Tydligen är det en trend att komma tillbaka så jag är glad att det är trendig! I augusti hittar du den här boomerangmedarbetaren tillbaka på Sephora med en extra spring i hennes steg!

This was an interesting turn of events since I wasn’t really sure if I would want to come back or what if I wanted to chance being away from the beauty industry. I have had many ask me to start my own but I’m just not interested, though I am sure if push came to shove, I would do a good job. But. I wanted to come back to what I am good at and what I have potential for and where better than the place I loved with the coworkers I loved right?
/Det här var en intressant händelse eftersom jag inte var säker på om jag skulle vilja komma tillbaka eller om jag ville ta chansen att vara borta från skönhetsindustrin totalt. Jag har fått många förfrågningar att starta eget men jag är bara inte intresserad att göra det, men jag är säker på om det verkligen sket sig så skulle jag göra ett bra jobb. Men. Jag ville komma tillbaka till det jag är bra på och vad jag har potential för och var bättre än vad jag älskade med medarbetarna jag älskar…right?

Who knows where this will take me, I do know that I would love to stay a year or so and… then? Well. We will just have to see! For those of you who read my blog and are in the area, come by, say hi and I cannot wait to see you at Sephora again soon!
/Vem vet var detta kommer att ta mig, jag vet att jag skulle älska att stanna ett år eller så och sen? Tjo. Vi får bara se! För er som läser min blogg och är i området, kom och säg hej och jag kan inte vänta med att se dig på Sephora igen snart!

Do you think I made a good decision making a U-turn back? What is your favorite brand at Sephora? Which brand are you missing that we don’t have in Scandinavia yet?
/Tror du att jag gjorde ett bra beslut att göra en U-sväng tillbaka?
Vad är ditt favoritmärke hos Sephora? Vilket märke saknas som vi inte har i Skandinavien än?
