I have never done a life update for a particular month before but I thought hey why not and here we go with October! In fact, I have never written a life update in general but there’s a first time for everything!
October is slowly becoming one of my favourite months, I mean what is there not to love. You get to enjoy things like Autumn fashion, Halloween and colder weather setting in – OK maybe not this one so much but I am a sucker for a nice big jumper during the cold season. One thing I am yet to try and am very excited about is a pumpkin latte. To be fair I have only just begun drinking coffee this year, so a pumpkin latte may have been a bit of a stretch previously, but not this year! I know what you’re all thinking but I really didn’t like coffee that much until I landed a job in marketing last year. My boss said “you will start to enjoy coffee” and at the time, I really hoped so. I was the annoying friend that met you in a coffee shop and ordered a diet coke or a hot chocolate, coffee just wasn’t for me.
To cut a long story short, as I feel like this blog post is turning into a love song for coffee, I started with a mocha and ended up really enjoying the taste so I feel that now I can be a cool cat and try a pumpkin latte. By the way, let me your thoughts on this as I’m very intrigued.
October so far hasn’t been a total crazy month for me to be fair. I have just got back from Doncaster after celebrating my beautiful Mum’s birthday and my gorgeous besties baby shower which was all very exciting. I love going back to Doncaster and spending a little time away from the city, as much as I do love the hustle and bustle. My trip basically consisted lots of dog walks, too much food and great company.
For the rest of the October, Gareth and I are making sure we have all our documents together to give notice of our marriage for next year, so that’s all very exciting (I’ve created a Wedding Diaries category if you would like to check it out). I’m extremely nervous that I forget to take the wrong document or something but I am sure that will all be A-OK. This year so far has been incredible, I have worked with so many different brands and I am so thankful for that. It has been so nice to take a small break which I believe was also very much needed and now I am back in full swing of everything. I have a very exciting collaboration with Weird Ape watches coming up which is a Yorkshire brand and I always love to support smaller companies. Watch out for this over on Instagram this week as I will be showing off their very stylish and sleek watches.
I believe at some stage this week, work and I are off for breakfast at the new Ivy in Leeds city centre and I am so excited about this. It’s crazy how fast they built it, literally felt like two minutes. I have been to the Ivy before in Sydney, it was so beautiful and even had a swimming pool (don’t think Leeds does funnily enough).
In a nutshell, my life update and goals are to try a pumpkin latte, start posting on my blog at least twice a week and carry on with the wedding plans. Also, I really want to shop for a pumpkin and of course whip-up some pretty cool content whilst shopping for a pumpkin.
October might not be super exciting but I have really enjoyed sharing with you and I will probably make it more of a consistent thing. Follow me over on Instagram for all my Autumnal content.
