It’s that time of the month again, where I look back on the memories and joyous times in October.
October has been, overall, a good month! Joe and I celebrated being 10 years together on the 30th September, spent time with friends and family, bought a shit ton of knitwear and binge watched Emily in Paris. Do we love, or do we hate it?
I also had a phone interview with my dream company yesterday, so wish me luck to get through to the next stage. Fingers and toes crossed!
It’s also been a bit of a shit month, my nan passed away and I’m still trying to process the whole thing. And, I’ve been sleeping in A LOT. I think it might just be the change in weather and not wanting to move my butt out of bed.
Any who, let’s look back on the month.
Anniversary – As I mentioned earlier, Joe and I celebrated being together for ten years, I know, cray right? We went into London and dined at SushiSamba and Hutong. And, had cocktails at Purl afterwards. It was such a happy day!
Happy Blossoms flowers – Joe treated me to a gorgeous bunch of dried flowers for my anniversary gift. In LOVE with them!
Roast dinner party – Early on in the month we had a roast dinner party. We cooked a mushroom wellington and chicken roast and I feel like it went down a treat. Cooking for six people is hard work, but it was a success.
Blood orange gin – Finally, this stuff is back in my life and I’m so thrilled about it.
LEON’s Aioli – I’ve been OBSESSED with LEON’s aioli sauce this month, it’s so so delicious.
GBBO – Hooray, it’s back on TV. Makes Tuesdays my fave day of the week.
Seeing my nan and grandad – I haven’t been as busy this month, so I’ve been popping round my nan and grandads every weekend. It’s been lovely! My nan (not the one mentioned above) has been in and out of hospital, so it’s good to have her back home.
Binge watched Emily in Paris – I loved it, but also hated it at the same time. It reminded me of Gossip Girl a little bit.
iPhone 12 Pro – Joe pre-ordered me an iPhone 12 for my birthday. I’ve received it early as I couldn’t wait to test it out. LOVE it!
Random day out in St Albans – Joe and I randomly drove to St Albans last Sunday and had a three course dinner at the Ivy – a little treat to celebrate Joe working for Apple for three years. We also walked around the park, which was rather lovely.
Mum’s birthday – Mid October was my mum’s birthday! We dined at the Florist and it was so dreamy.
Hotel Chocolat advent calendar’s – I know, I know, it’s only October, but I’ve been feeling Christmassy and have started my Christmas shopping early.
Personalised ZARA tote bag – I saw on the ZARA website that you could personalise tote bags, so I caved and bought one! It’s so pretty and brings me so much joy. I don’t have a bag this size, I think it’ll be really good for travelling.
SPACE NK freebies – For my birthday month, SPACE NK sent me an email saying that I could pick up a little birthday treat or two in store for free. I got a Omorovicza Budapest Queen of Hungary Mist, Emma Hardie moisturiser and Dr Dennis Gross blemish gel. What a generous package! Thank you SPACE NK.
Learning After Effects – I needed to refresh my memory on After Effects and I’m enjoying doing a 50 hour online course at the moment. I can animate videos which is so cool. Still a lot to learn, but I’m getting there!
So that’s it for the month! It’s my birthday in two days, so I’ll be celebrating with lots of cake. Hope you’re all well and having a lovely day or eve.
