Welcome to the very first edition of Boop’s Week! This is a new lifestyle feature I’m aiming to share with you on a weekly basis, every Friday. Something little to look forward to 🙂 Basically every Friday I’m going to share five impressions from the week gone by – be it news, photos from the Bec Boop Instagram, meaningful quotes, experiences, favourite products – fashion/beauty or something totally random! Who knows; and I really hope you enjoy this new weekly feature, let’s call it a little insight into the world of Bec Boop. “Click to View Post” under the image to continue reading and see what I got up to this week…
You know the story, you go to bed at a reasonable hour…next thing you know it’s two hours later and you’re browsing Pinterest on your phone! Story of my life anyways. I consider myself a bit of an early bird and a night owl. Right now I can function quite fine on 5 hours sleep, that’s all I need and I crazily see sleeping as such a waste of time. I guess when you’re running a blog and working full-time as an accountant you get by on the minimum zzzzz’s. Before the lectures start I know this will catch up with me eventually and I’ll learn to enjoy the occasional sleep-in. This little quote which I shared on Instagram during the week made me smile one of those late nights when I was browsing the interweb *looking for blog inspiration of course*.
It would be impossible to talk about the week gone by without reflecting on the horrific attack in Paris and the after-effect of solidarity we witnessed worldwide. I was absolutely shocked by the videos which were shared online and this attack on freedom of speech can never be justified. There were so many images shared on twitter under #CharlieHebdo or #JeSuisCharlie but nothing demonstrated the true impact of this more than the video above where the lights of the Eiffel Tower were switched off for 5 minutes on Thursday 8 January as a mark of respect to the 12 innocent victims of the terrorist attack.
I was interviewed on Galway Bay FM radio during the week on the Keith Finnegan show which was such a fantastic and exciting experience. You all know how much I love Galway city and to be interviewed on the radio station which I grew up listening to was such an awesome feeling. You can listen to the full interview in the podcast at 01:53.
During the week I had my first consultation with David McConville Orthodontics for the invisalign treatment. I’ve always had a thing about my teeth and you might have noticed I usually tend to do the Bec Boop pout in photos. I’m super excited to be starting the invisalign treatment over the next few months with the Sligo clinic of #McConvilleOrtho who I’ve heard fantastic things about. During the consultation I learnt all about the process and it is exactly what I was looking for, as the braces are practically invisible so don’t really impact your day-to-day habits or appearance at all while wearing them. You can clearly see how thrilled I looked in the dentist chair 🙂 I’ll be blogging about the treatment fully over the next year and you’ll be able to follow my invisalign journey over on the David McConville Orthodontics facebook page. Here’s to straight teeth in 2015.
I first tried these hair product’s New Year’s Eve before I went out that night and I’ve been using them this week since then. Oh my god – the shine! I had been using the Garnier Ultimate Blends ‘The Sleek Restorer’ previously but it is not a patch on this one – ‘The Nourishing Repairer’. The avocado oil and shea butter leaves your hair feeling super super soft and with such a healthy shine. I was really impressed.
Whittling it down to only five items from the past week was a lot more difficult than I expected! I really hope you enjoyed the first edition of Boop’s Week and look forward to another little update next Friday. I’d love to hear from you in the comments below. What did you get up to this week?
