Crissy Chats #2 Weekly Favourites ♡

My week on Instagram, featuring Ed Sheeran, new lipstick and randomness!

Hello lovelies!

How was your week? Mine was a bit exhausting and eventful. I started the second semester (eek!) although I'm quite motivated! However, I'm SO not looking forward to waking up at 6 almost everyday...

On the bright side, I'm going to Barcelona this following weekend! I'm super excited about it. I have already talked about this on my previous Crissy Chats. My best friend and me are seeing Fall Out Boy and also some friends who live in Barcelona because they study there, so I can't wait! I see my friends often because they always come here for holidays and random weekends but I wish they were here sometimes! We grew up together so I always miss them. At least we keep in touch no matter what!

I've been going to the gym again, I'm trying to see how can I merge my university schedule with my gym hours and I think I'm going to be able to make it! I like gym, I like taking care of myself. I like feeling sore because it's the kind of sore that pays off. I think it's sort of therapeutic, too. Everytime I feel stressed I think that going to the gym, running a bit even if it's just sprinting for 30 seconds, helps a lot! And of course, a good playlist helps. If you're interested, I could write a post about a healthy lifestyle and share with you some of my favourite tunes for gym! Let me know down below!

Hammam Mint (20 bags) RRP: 4,50€
Tin from Rituals RRP: 3,50€

Of course, I've been drinking tea a lot - as it's usual with me. I love tea, any kind! Green tea is my favourite, I must confess, and yesterday I got this awesome tea as a present from my best friend! I bought the tin for my mum (she loves tins for some reason) and my best friend got me the 20 tea bags. It's from Rituals, a brand I've been dying to try on in every aspect and hopefully I'll be buying more and more things from them.


I also got a lipstick that I want to talk about tomorrow - it was also a gift. I have the post half written and I can only show you how it looks but if you want to see more about the brand, name and price you'll have to come back tomorrow! (Yes, that's the pic from above!)

Overall, I had a pretty nice week!

  6. I drink tea all the time, but always just regular builder's tea (I hope you know what I mean by that haha!). I want to branch out into other flavours though, what would you recommend? xxx

    1. Aw Chloe! Thanks for passing by! I love your blog so I fangirled a bit hahaha! I understood the reference thanks to Google (at least I learnt something more!) Mmmm... I love tea and I think this tea is great because it's refreshing and you don't need to add sugar. I don't know if you drink it with milk or not, I simply boil the water and add the tea bag, as simple as that and it's delicious. However, the brand Lord Nelson (sold in Lidl!) they have plenty of flavours and I love any fruity one like peach flavoured or berry flavoured! <3 xxx

Hello, thank you for taking your time to comment! I read them all and I usually reply! (Unless I forget, but I do read them!!!)

However, please don't do follow for follow - I will most likely follow you if I like your blog and everything about it but don't ask for a follow for follow! Thank you!

PS. Leave your links though, I love reading new blogs! xx
