A Few Things That I Just Can’t Justify Buying For Myself

A Few Things That I Just Can't Justify Buying For Myself

[dropcap]J[/dropcap]ust a quick one from me today because, in all honesty, I have zero to blog about at the moment. Next week there should be a few seaside-themed posts, and maybe a photo or two of me at a wedding looking average, but for now I’m really sorry. Nothing exciting has happened and I have no thoughts in my head. I’ve also been quite ill for the last week or two. Not ill like ‘I’m really ill’ but my ears have been blocked for over a month now, with no reason or relief, and it’s upset my balance and general quality of life somewhat. All I can hear constantly is the whooshing of air in my ear and I have the desperate need to swallow constantly. Oh and my head feels like it’s going to explode from all the pressure.

The doctor gave me something but it hasn’t really helped so I’m going to have to go back and have my head trepanned or something…

Enough about me.

Or rather, enough about my ears. Let’s talk about things. Things that I want right now but can’t really afford.

There are some absolute gems in this little pile of affiliated links, and I’ll leave you to browse and peruse in your own precious time. What I will say, however, is that it’s my birthday in less than a month so, y’know. Cough. Wink. etc.

    Those maps are so similar to ones my friend Claire rossiter draws and she sells them on etsy for less than the rifle paper does. Plus, I commissioned her last year to do me a personalised map of Plymouth and Falmouth with all our favourite places on! I love them! link to her site is here – https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/clairrossiter?ref=pr_shop_more Alice xxx

    Hope you feel better soon!
    These all look like things I would love to buy as well =o) Especially the book about 36 hours in Europe =o)

    Everything here is so beautiful – I’ve wanted the CT Film Star Bronze & Glow for ages but just cannot justify buying it for myself, bit too pricey!

    Gosh, everything on here is just so beautiful. If you ever need an excuse, I use ‘I got through the day’ as my regular justification 😉 xx

    I have the same problem with my ears, apparently my tubes are narrower than usual so more prone to blocking (gross). If you haven’t tried it already then I would recommend putting olive oil in your ears. It sounds strange but it softens the wax and relieves the pressure a little bit. I’m going to get mine syringed next week, maybe you could try and get that done? It’s awful though, I totally understand what you’re going through! (also all the things you’ve put here are really pretty especially the pink new look trainers)

      I feel your ear pain! My issue isn’t actually wax at all! I tried all the wax blockage solutions and when they didn’t work I went to the doctor and he said I didn’t have any wax at all, and that it was a problem behind each of my eardrums 🙁 He gave me a prescription and it hasn’t worked so I’m going to have to go back. Ah well! Hope your ears feel better soon! xx

    It’s like you looked in to my brain and just pulled out my whole wishlist, so much pretty. I hope you feel better soon, and manage to get some relief xx

    I’ve heard a lot about NEOM candles but they are so expensive!


  • Amber Davey says:

    I loooove Neom candles! I need some candles for my room, but I’ll probs stock up on some cheaper ones for now 😛 I also love the pink trainers, and I’ve heard great things about the 36 hours in Europe book! 😀

    Daaayyuuum I want those pink sneakers – they look sick! Also that NYT travel book has been on my radar for a few years now lol. My friend has it and I’ve had a flick through and it’s really cool… Think you should threaten, I mean, gently remind Oli to get you it 😉 also ugh about the eardrums shizz. My ears are also pretty effed up, and I actually found out through one of my desyringing visits to the doctor that I have a perforation in my eardrum :X
