Happy Tuesday and I hope you’re all having a great week so far? How was everyone’s September and what did you get up to? Can you believe we’re now officially in the final quarter of this year? I think October has to be my favourite month, so I’m feeling pretty good about it.
As I was hoping, I had a great month last month. Our little break in East Sussex was exactly what I needed and I enjoyed every second of it! We visited a few castles, museums, went swimming in the sea with the dog, went out for dinner and thoroughly “got away from it all” for a few days. I’ve been thinking of doing a little trip diary on what we got up to while we were there – what do you guys think? Since travel isn’t something I post about often. I might do it anyway because it’s fun to reminisce.
I also stuck to my plans to reach out to brands again, and much to my excitement I do have a few things in the pipeline. This made me do a little happy dance because they’re a little victory for me and the kind of reassurance I needed as of late. Securing any opportunity, big or small, is amazing and I’m always proud of myself when I do!
So given that September has been one of my favourite months of this year, October has some shoes to fill. I’ve said it before but this time of year is my favourite. Halloween, Bonfire Night, Christmas, New Year – it’s just happy and festive and exciting. And so I can really enjoy the closing months of the year I think my main objection and goal for this month is a simple but difficult one at the same time.
This means anything from my blog content to keep the house organised. I want to plan ahead for Christmas and upcoming birthdays. And above all, keep on top of my damn emails (because I’m truly terrible with that) and organising some time for me. So it’s a combination of a few goals all wrapped up into one.
I don’t know about everyone else, but I feel a little unhinged when things aren’t organised. I’m by no means a control freak and I’m very laid back (I think?) – but if things are a mess, or I have put things off I end up unravelling a little bit. It puts me in this anxious place and I get myself worked up over stuff that really never should have been an issue. I suppose it’s just the way my mind works. I like things clear and taken care of since it means I don’t have anything to “worry” about and I don’t end up with nasty surprises!
I’m looking forward to October, I have another good feeling about it and would love to hear what you guys have planned.
Until next time ♡
