I had been on the hunt for a black and white checkered coat for a long time when I finally found this Missguided coat. It is really so chic, it’s not too heavy but not too light, and the print is exactly what I was looking for. I love layering jackets with turtlenecks because I find they make the whole look seem a touch more dressy. I’ve been stocking up on turtlenecks lately and I’m sorry if I maybe over-wear them sometimes! I can’t help it.
Today I am heading to Vegas for the weekend for one of my best friend’s baby shower, and I am SO excited to see all my lovely girls! One problem, I lifted something heavy in a weird way and messed something up in my lower back. Ever since then it has just hurt SO bad and I am really struggling! Then Thursday night I even hurt it again and now it’s really not happy with me. I know one of my friends has scoliosis, which often makes her back hurt. I asked her for some tips to cope with the pain, but she recently went to visit this scoliosis institute for treatment, so her pain has reduced. However, she was able to give me a few tips that I’d not heard of before. They don’t seem to have worked that well, though. Anyone else know any back pain remedies? So far I’ve tried Tylenol, and a hot compress and occasionally a hot bath with epsom salt and essential oils. A colleague has even suggested that if I see a chiropractor low back pain could become a thing of the past. I’ve also heard from a few people that getting a new mattress might be a good idea. Apparently, an old mattress can sometimes cause back pain. My friend told me to visit simplyrest for mattress for back pain, so maybe I’ll have to have a look and maybe purchase one if my back still hurts after Vegas.
One of my friends has even told me to think about getting a new office chair. Sitting in an office chair for long periods of time can lead to all kinds of problems with your back and therefore it is important to invest in an orthopedic office chair if your job requires you to sit down for the majority of the day. There are lots of places where you can get office chairs today online after all. As a blogger I spend a lot of time in my home office writing and so investing in a comfortable office chair is crucial. I might have to take her advice if my back pain does not improve! That being said, I’m still kind of concerned about the flight and getting to Vegas, but I am going to persevere, because nothing will keep me from seeing my friends!
Get ready for me girls, I’m comin’ for ya!
