September Round Up

WHOAH! How is it the last day of September already?! This month feels like it’s gone so fast. On my first ‘Motivational Monday’ post of the month (check it out here) I stated a few aims for this month which were the following....
‘start looking at my future, make plans, start figuring out where I want to go what I want to do’
‘Learning something new’
‘Attempt to do a blog post every day for the month.’
Err so I kind of failed miserable at all of these, in terms of making plans I still have no idea how to get to where I want to be. Although I know I want to write, I want to travel, I’d love to meet Mr Right instead of Mr Oh So Wrong.... I just have no idea how to do any of these three!! I lack confidence in my writing, I have no money at all so travelling is out unless some amazing person would love to pay for me to travel and write about the experience??? And as for prince charming, how the hell do you meet hot single boys these days?!
I don’t think I’ve learnt anything new and I failed miserable at blogging every day! However the week where I did manage to blog every day, I’m not sure I enjoyed it that much. Don’t get me wrong I love blogging and have post ideas coming out of my ears but when I put pressure on myself to blog each day I didn’t get the same buzz out of it. Therefore in a good way it’s made me realize I love blogging and I will blog when the mood takes me. No pressure, no ‘I have to post’, no mass commitment. I think this is then reflected in my writing, if I’m happy I think my writing improves.
Do you blog? Do you like to read/write posts daily? I’d be really interested in people’s views on this.
On the plus side, this month’s been pretty awesome, I may not have achieved my aims but I’ve still had a blast! Works been crazy busy but I’ve managed to catch up with so many of my amazing friends. I feel so lucky that I’m surrounded by some pretty talented, lovely, funny, crazy people. As you get older it sometimes feels harder to see people and have regular catch ups, due to the daily grind of life getting in the way. But when we do see each other, it’s like no times past, and I love it. There’s something about good friends that just make you feel so awesome. It may also be due to the large amount of cocktails and dancing that’s taken place this month!
I’ve also done a bit of moon lighting this month, I was very lucky that I got the chance to write a piece for FETED Magazine about my homemade face mask and scrub. It’s so exciting to see my work someone else other than my blog! I also did my first ever guest post for the lovely Gabriella at Brighton Girl Blogger, which you can find Here. I also recommend you check out here bucket list! It’s inspired me to start my own. I’m not sure I’m as brave to put it in the public domain though!
Favourite product...
For September it’s definitely got to be my Moroccan Oil! It ran out about a week ago, but it’s lasted me for months! I’ve been using it most days and since I’ve run out I’ve definitely noticed my hair is more knotty and isn’t as soft at the ends. I’m trying to be good with money at the moment but I’ve got a big argument in my head to order some more. Oooh the dilemma!
Top Tune for this Month...

Please forgive me for such a word heavy post!  I just feel that even though I didn’t quite do what I set out to achieve this months, it’s still been refreshing and fun and I feel like I’m making massive strides down a positive happy path! It’s also been really nice to write this post, to be able to sit down and reflect on things. I think we are all guilty of not taking the time to do that, and it’s so important.

Happy Monday Lovelies! xx



  1. This is such a happy cheery post, made me smile! Happy Monday to you!
    M x Life Outside London

  2. Great post! I'm relatively new to blogging and I see people posting everyday and I thought I was weird for not posting as regularly. Sometimes I just get too busy or I don't really have anything worth blogging about. I'd rather blog less frequently but let each post be full of content I'm happy with, not just blogging for bloggings sake

  3. I tried blogging everyday was really hard! I actually don't think it's necessary to blog everyday. I think it's all about quality over quantity and you should only put your best work out! I also know where you are coming from with not knowing where to go or what do. I grew up thinking that I would have life figured out by now. Nope. Not at all. I graduated from college and still have no idea what to do with my life. That definitely wasn't supposed to happen! Lol, anyways great post! Check out my blog sometime:

  4. I did blog every day during September (I took part in #BlogYourSocksOffSeptember) but I'm quite happy for now, going back to 3-4 times a week! :-) x

  5. Great post! Enjoyed the read. I don't agree with blogging everyday either. When inspiration keeps your posts interesting keep up the good work babes. Im at xxx would love to know if you stop by. Xx
