This week has been a crazy one. For the best part of the week I’ve felt really overwhelmed and here is why.
Originally we were just going to skip the engagement party thing all together…. Well that’s not true we weren’t sure if we going to have one or not. Long story short we decided we would and then there was really only one weekend free until April and, anyone who has a boyfriend or family member who plays football will know, it’s almost impossible to fit an engagement party into the footy season. Now the date is set around a month away and although it’s going to be a low key type of thing it’s still really got me overwhelmed. Deciding on what food, drinks to have and how to decorate our backyard is stressful. It doesn’t help most of my close friends are either away for the summer or don’t live locally to me. Isaac is being a trooper and helping where he can. Officeworks completely F-ED our invites, meaning we had to reorder paper, and the customer service was absolutely shocking making it me feel like it was MY fault when really it was theirs. I asked for 5×7 and they printed them out at A4 then despite being friendly I had managers being rude when I asked for help. That along with an increase in work here on the website, trying to find a wedding venue and the general life junk that happens it hasn’t been a fun week. It’s all gonna be fine and I know that but I can’t help but feel like there is alot to do (the fact I’m PMSing doesn’t help either).
I text my friend and said ‘fuck this is hard when you work for yourself part of the week’ because where do you draw the line? When do you allow yourself time off? How much work is okay? I’m working with some really cool brands in the next few weeks and when I’m working on campaigns it gives me a little anxiety. When I write my usual content that isn’t collaborating with a brand I don’t need anyone’s approval. I write, upload and it’s done. It’s scary writing when you receive a brief, pitch an idea and then hold your breath hoping they like it. On the flip it’s good because I push myself creatively… I guess it’s something I’ll get used to as MTA grows right?
I also decided to start clearing out my make up this week. I have kept alot of press samples for features however it’s starting to overwhelm me so I’ve decided to only keep products I love and donate the rest. I can always re-buy products if I need them from the website! I am considering starting an Instagram for the products I want to get rid of and for press samples only ask for you to cover postage and sell them items I’ve bought myself. Would you guys be interested in that? Let me know because it’s I’ve started with base products and I do have a fair loot of stuff.
Okay so I didn’t mean for this post to be so whinge-y but hey it happens right? I know it’s all going to be fine so I don’t need a pity party but I thought I’d keep it real this week. Oh and the Twitter chat I mentioned last week I’ll be starting on Wednesday 3rd. As you can probably tell from above I’ve had a bit on my plate this week and I want to give that all the love and attention it deserves.
