SEPTEMBER FAVOURITES


I can't believe it's time for another monthly faves post! I swear all these posts do is remind me just how quickly each month goes! I always feel like September is my January. I work in a school so September has always been the month that I see as a new start to the year and I always take time this month to reset myself and reassess where I am and where I want to go.


What I've been buying...

I've been on a bit of a save mission this month as I actually didn't get my first pay check till last week so have been pretty much poor the entire month! However, I have managed to buy a few pieces that I love this month.

So it's no secret that I love vinyl. There's just something about wearing PVC/Vinyl that makes me feel like the ultimate badass goth and I finally added a pair of vinyl trousers to my wardrobe and I AM IN LOVE! As soon as I saw these in New Look I knew I had to have them- they are everything I have ever wanted in a pair of trousers and they just fit me perfectly (which is the first time ever!). I cannot wait to style these for a blog post and they may even be featuring for one of my Blogoween posts.

If there's one thing I love it's a funky hat. I've always had a love for hat and I've always found it quite funny that people often me I suit hats. I tried this hat on in River Island as a complete joke and then fell so in love with it, that I never wanted to take it off! I've seen this hat in a number of pictures from LFW and I love the cool girl off duty vibe it has. Perfect for the Autumn weather and when I have a bad hair day!

Without a doubt, the best and most exciting thing I've brought this month is my outfit for The Bloggers Blog Awards! I had been on the hunt for my dress for so long when I came across the perfect dress on Pretty Little Thing. It's a lil tighter than what I would usually go for (haha!) but I love it and it makes me feel like such a goth queen! I am so excited to wear it on Saturday and see what all the other fab bloggers are gonna look like!


What I've been loving this month...

September means it's finally Autumn- my favourite season! I love Autumn, for me it just has so much more going for it than any other season. I love the cooler starts and how all the leaves have started to fall from the trees. I love the colours of this season- reds, oranges, yellows and browns. Nature is defintely at it's best during this season and I mean it's only one month to go till Halloween so...

I feel like I've definitely been making more of a conscious effort to create and stick to a skincare routine this month. My skin has never been the best, I've always had pretty dry skin and let's just say I've never been the best at looking after it. I'm the kinda girl who sleeps in her makeup, skips her routine and has never really understood the point of cleansing and toning. This month I've really loved establishing a skincare routine that I'm fairly confident I can stick to! For me a huge part of this is making sure my skin stays hydrated and I have loved using this face oil from Botanicals! Already I can tell the difference with my skin, so here's hoping I can keep it up!


A Life Update..

September has been a pretty busy month! I started my first job and am trying to get the hang of having an "adult" job. I've been trying to get the hang of balancing work, blogging and just life in general and I'm not going to lie, it's going to take me a while to get myself into a routine I'm happy with but I feel like I'm balancing it all pretty well so far - so fingers crossed! All that being said, I do absolutely love my job, I love teaching and being able to see that what I do actually makes a difference. There have been times when I've stressed that this wasn't for me or that I wasn't good enough to do this but I'm really happy in my job and I honestly love going to work.

However, my true September favourite hasn't actually happened yet as I'm off to The Bloggers Blog Awards on Saturday! I have been waiting for this for so so long and I can't believe it's nearly here! I can't wait to be reunited with my goth sister Jess and meet a ton of new bloggers and hang out with my faves Jess, Lucy and so many more! I'm also up for Best New Blogger, which is so insane! All the other nominees are incredible so I have no chance but I'm looking forward to celebrating blogging with my best pals!

Next month is October which means only one thing- Blogoween! All my posts throughout October will be Halloween themed and I can't wait for you to see the content I've been busy creating!

Till next time,
