Little Loves, Vol 15 + Updates

in , , by RoyallyPink, 4:00 AM

 It has been quite the week for me! It started on Thursday when I had the most hellish eye doctor's appointment that you can read more about there. On Friday, I was riddled with leftover anxiety but was trying to keep my cool and stay present. I had an appointment with my chiropractor on Friday afternoon and that always feels like such a treat after a long week.

Afterwards, I was refreshed but felt myself fall into a bit of a depression and I went to sleep with what felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest. I woke up on Saturday morning with the same feeling but now there was a reason for it.

My Instagram account was disabled. 

They said that I violated community guidelines, which I didn't think I did, though I did have a post from April 2022 removed on Friday afternoon. Otherwise my account was in good standing. It nearly sent me into a spiral because even though I didn't have a lot of followers, I felt like my identity had vanished. Instagram, social media, and my blog has been part of who I am for over a decade. Without my Instagram account, it feels like everything I have vanished.

I know that sounds vain but it felt really nerve wracking to be wiped from what is the world's town square. It was jarring, upsetting and I was just exhausted at the thought of the fight ahead of me. Because I've run ads on my Instagram and Facebook, I was able to get in touch with the Meta Business Support team and we're working on it but who knows what will happen.

In the meantime, go follow my new account!

Saturday also brought on a lot of emotions around the fact that I missed the Jonas Brothers on Broadway and that I don't have tickets to The Eras Tour. My For You Page has been flooded with videos and I honestly just cried on Saturday because I was so sad.

The rest of the weekend didn't get much better and I took a sick day today, Monday, as I write this because I felt so ill - both physically and mentally. I feel a little better now so let's get into some happier things I've been loving.

It's Girl Scout Cookie Season and I have eaten so many boxes it's alarming. Tagalongs are my ultimate favorite and I think if I had to pick one cookie to eat for the rest of my life, it would be a Tagalong. I don't have any Girl Scouts in my life but they now sell them digitally, through different troops and Girl Scouts so do some digging on Twitter for a random link like I did, or order from Troop 6000, a troop in NYC that gives back to the families within the community. 

As I said, I am devastated that I'm not *currently* going to The Eras Tour but there is always hope I can figure out a way. In the meantime, I've been loving my Mini Stoney Clover Pouch inspired by Midnights - we have a lilac pouch, a Cinderella clock, and a Sapphire aka navy blue glitter star. It screams Midnights Era and I love it.

A new café was opened in my work building a few weeks ago and it was so boujee, so chic and I loved running there to grab a latte. The aesthetic was everything I could want, I mean, look at that cup! It was the perfect midday treat.

Before the eye doctor fiasco, I was trying on different frames and I'm feeling these Burberry ones. Burberry has been on my radar lately and truthfully, I've always loved the brand so I'm happy to see them making a resurgence. I think I might have to go back to the store and get these beige glasses.

I always swore that whenever I got a Chanel bag I would use it. I wasn't going to be one of those girls who babied her bags, left them on a shelf to collect dust. Well, I lied. I did become that girl but last week I decided to grab my beige Chanel and take her on a casual day out. I actually did it two days in a row and it added a little pep in my step and really made the day feel fabulous.

I've gotten a lot of great book mail recently; some were pre-orders, some are from Book of the Month and some are ARCs aka The Last Word by Taylor Adams, the author of No Exit. His new book comes out on April 25th and I can't wait to sink my teeth into it. 

Last week was National Sleep Week and March 17th was World Sleep Day. I filmed a Reel about my favorite sleep products and I definitely owe you all an updated sleep routine. For now, these are all my favorite products that help me fall asleep, stay asleep and wake up refreshed. Shop everything here!

I love my Hotel Lobby Candles so much! I've been burning through the Paris Nuit scent before diving into the rest of my Spa candle from last Spring. They're expensive but give the most luxurious feel, and truly are an indulgence in the best way possible. There are so many scents to choose from and I'm excited to see what is next for the brand. I think my next candle from them might be Miami or Island.

What have you been loving lately?
