On Wednesday I had another day off (2 days in a row that’s a luxury in retail!) I decided to deep clean my kitchen and bathroom and in the morning I went to the hair salon to get a hair cut. After discussing with my hairdresser for a while we decided it would be the best to remove all the dead ends and the tiny bits of hair dye left on my hair. I said I wanted something classic and Marilyn Monroe inspired since I have curls myself so 12cm is chopped off. I came home kind of insecure and feeling all strange (it such a shame how society puts you in some kind of direction as a woman ….) but in the end everything is fine and I only got compliments. I really wanted to share my haircut on my Instagram, (just curious about the reactions) so I uploaded a picture … after that I closed the app and went on with my day.
Scent of the day: Juliette has a gun Lady Vengeance mixed with Molecules 01 - Later on the day Peau Santal by Miller Harris and after that at night - Amouage Dia (yep I’m the kind of person that likes to mix and switch).
Today I had to work from 11:00 till 19:00, I did check some stories (but not in swipe mode, just people I enjoy talking to in real life) and I answered some DM’s. In the morning I uploaded a picture of me telling I don’t want to share anything “fake” anymore and I made the statement that I won’t be editing my photos again with filters. My work day was fun, thanks to lovely staff. It really amazes me how much I actually care about scrolling on social media and keeping up with everything, I noticed I really like to look at other peoples lives when I know them in real life, not when influencers post something. By the way I lost 12 followers.
I like this low-key social media thing a lot. I feel a lot less frustrated, I have more time, more inspiration, and more motivation!
Friday, Saturday and Sunday
I did check out some DM’s and uploaded some pictures but I did not scroll trough Instagram or watched stories. I have to admit it felt really good to just be more present and not think about Social Media a lot, we are one week ahead now and I have to say it slowly becomes a habit to just check my social media when I really feel like it and to not mindlessly scroll trough my feed while waiting for the bus. I also unfollowed a lot of people that upload content I can not relate to or I just don’t enjoy anymore.
Ps on Sunday I visited the vintage fragrance fair with my friend Nysa and I came home with some really nice items.
