Hi Guys, the start of a brand new month...I love it when a brand new month starts at the beginning of the week..the 1st on a Monday..makes the start even better...September always gives me a back to school feeling..even though I left school a long time ago...but you sense the change in the air...summer is sadly leaving as behind...as we approach Autumn....September is a good month for reflection, I feel....a chance to look through your goals..did you achieve the ones you set out too? Are some of your goals no longer important anymore? These are some of the things I'll be doing this month.
Buying New Stationery Again back to the old school feeling...but I always love a fresh notepad/book. There's no better feeling than listing dreams and goals on a fresh clean page...makes things seem more *official* when they are written on nice writing paper. Almost as if you are taking them more seriously and are investing in yourself and your goals.. I was surprised actually by how many other people feel the same. I always thought people just typed everything straight on to their computer..but it still seems us bloggers are the old fashioned types who can't get enough of good old fashioned pen and paper method.
Have A Good Clear Out This is something I have been meaning to do since erm January of this year. I tend to collect things like a little magpie and am then unsure as what to do with them!!...You know when you buy things and in your head, it's going to look like this...but it doesn't, well that tends to happen to me a lot, particular regarding clothing!!...I did start a list earlier this year about buying new clothes in blue/grey/white..which I kinda have stuck to...but I feel like I want to remove everything that doesn't fit in with my new choice completely... forever! I'm thinking of having a little sale of some sort...so I will keep you guys posted on this.
New Hobby I need a new hobby and I want a new hobby that will put me in contact with other human bodies!! A lot of things seem to happen via social media which is great but sometimes you can't beat a good old fashioned conversation with like minded people. Lots of colleges will be starting their part time courses this month...so I feel it will be a good way to kill two birds with one stone, I will learn a new skill, I will meet people with similar interests and oh...I may even gain a recognised qualification...that means I've killed three birds with one stone!
Food Posts I did initially start my blog as an intention as a beauty blogger but this isn't working out for me. As much as I love beauty I love lots of other topics as well. I do feel it's harder to keep coming up with posts for just one subject, especially if you are not spending a lot of money on items. I am in the process of using up all my odds and ends stuff...some of the packaging is little tatty..and I can't really photograph it..and no one wants to keep reading me harp on about the Boots Botanical Facial Scrub....AGAIN! The type of blogs, I love to read our lifestyle blogs..I love to read a mixture of things..and this is what I intend to do with my blog..once I get going in some sort of pattern. I haven't put up an food posts yet..just pinterest finds...so this is something I want to rectify as soon as. I also need to improve the presentation of my food before I show you guys...I don't want anyone vomiting after seeing my pictures!
Walk I have mentioned in previous posts, I love walking..I know walking sounds a bit dull but you haven't walked with me....then it's all action...baby!! I'm a very quick walker..as anyone who knows me will testify..I am also known as the *Human Hovercraft* yes that fast. However I do find myself walking to the same places..day in, day out...even over the weekend. I want to start walking in areas I've never been to before...even though I have lived in London for a while..I still feel I haven't really touched the surface of this wonderful city..so I am going to buy a London A-Z and each weekend go visit an area, I've never been too...somewhere different rather than Brick Lane, Shoreditch, Kings Road...possible explore more the outskirts...such as Richmond...Highgate, area's I don't normally visit....What are your goals for the month?
