Instagram: October 2014

cosy interiors • breakfast with the paper • elle and essie • chips ahoy dairy milk • not one but two little blue boxes • organising my space • round food for every mood • bathroom inspiration • croissant and #girlboss • autumn classics • new art prints • my pinterest is full of neutral interiors • love the patterning here • pink mojito for a friend's birthday • graduation • wagamama favourite

Phew, I say this every single month but where is this year going? I can't believe we're almost in November but that means we can start talking about Christmas! I've managed to book off all of Christmas and New Year this time around so can fully look forward to the most wonderful time of the year - and I'm already excited to see Christmas window displays and am planning on buying some new decorations this year (The White Company, I'm looking at you!)

October has been a truly lovely month. The weather is finally getting chillier, and the crisp autumn leaves are crunching underfoot which is a sure sign of my favourite beautiful season. I'm still on the lookout for conkers though... Can't seem to find any locally this year, weird! I guess the biggest thing to happen to me in October was that I graduated with a BA (Hons) degree in English and Creative Writing. I won't go into details on this post but I wrote all about it earlier this week (click here). All I will say is that it was the proudest day of my life, and I'm so grateful for everything that has happened the last three years. 

I also did a complete bedroom overhaul and am planning to redecorate at some point. This is pretty much thanks to all the pinning on Pinterest - what else is new? And a confession: I can't stop eating croissants at the moment! They are so delicious but I'm going to have to curb my habit next month. I'm going back to healthy eating and exercise, which is why I'm having a final cheeky Domino's this weekend! It's been a pretty indulgent month but I really want to lose some weight so I don't feel so guilty gorging over Christmas.

Is it too early to start thinking about Christmas, by the way? I've had my list ready for the past month and will soon be buying a new stocking for this year, not to mention taking a trip to Homebase to look for decorations! We've already decided to go with the red and gold theme this year. I want to be so much more organised than I am though. That probably means I should set aside some of my wages over the next two pay days so I can actually afford gifts for everyone, haha! 

How was your October?


  1. You are like a total professional IGer arent you?! It's all so pretty! Love your tartan scarf too, I can't find a one I like :(
    Love your plans for the Christmas decor. I can't wait to see what decor I's been so long since I packed everything away I can't really remember it haha

    Best wishes, Danielle. x

    1. Awh thanks lovely! My scarf was from the Gretna Green sale last winter, made from lambswool so super comfy! They usually have a sale on around this time of year so give it a look! Xx
