I don’t know about you guys, but doesn’t it feel like this months has just gone by in the blink of an eye. How are we all the way through January already?
I am sure you have all noticed that I have been a little quiet this month and that The House of Lotz has been closed for guests quite a bit. This month has been a bit hard. I’m pretty sure I have mentioned this before, but my depression, anxiety and some other health issues have been keeping me out of action. For those of you who suffer with this sort of thing, you will understand where I am coming from. All I have wanted to do is hide in my house and never leave. It has been taking every bit of energy to get up and deal with the day. But hey, these things happen and sometimes we need to take a break to take care of ourselves. (As this has been acting up, there will be a post coming up in the next weeks).
Anyway…enough about that….let’s get into the things that have been keeping me going over the last month…..
In the Kitchen:
Over the last few months, my stomach has not been feeling tip top. I suffer with intestinal cramping which is stress related anyway, but the last few months have been really bad! After doing some research and reflecting on the things that make up my home, I discovered I was using plastic drinks containers waaaay past when you should switch them out…..and apparently this could have been adding to my discomfort. In a bid to fix this, I have switched all of these out to glass drinks bottles.
There is nothing more perfect that new sheets. The Boy and I were super lucky and given a lovely voucher for Christmas my Godparents. So….in a bid to make out home even more cozy, we invested in new sheets.
So as you have seen, I’ve not been in the best place, and as a result my usual routines with everything have been thrown in the air! In a bid to get my skin resembling something normal and not a dry piece of toast, I have been relying on my Foreo Luna 2 face cleaning brush.
This little guy is amazing!! It gently buffs and scrubs your skin, but not in a very abrasive fashion. I have even been using the reverse side to reduce my chances of wrinkles and bringing down puffy eyes.
In The Living Room; aka The House of Lotz Spa and Retreat:
So The House of Lotz Spa and Retreat has had a little rework and has a new section. This is now the home of The House of Lotz HQ. Our “office” space is currently wedding central so there is no room for me….sad times!
In a bid to get some more focus and spend some more time with my beautiful guests, The Boy and I have organised a little space in here where I can sit, write and play with stationary.
I am loving my little space, especially the little acrylic drawers that house my happy little stationery collection.
If I am every stressed, or absent for a while, you will find me here, with a colouring book and a cup of tea trying to get my focus back…..it’s great!!
In The Portable House of Lotz; aka Inside My Handbag:
As you saw from my last post, I am head over heels in love with my new planner! I have been living out of this thing for the last 4 weeks, and I could not be happier!
I am working on getting up the post I owe you from my time away, and next month, I am hoping to get back on track!
Sending you all hugs and love xXx Have a great weekend xXx
