October is my favourite month for obvious reasons. It’s my birthday month and it’s the colder season which means wooly knits, lighting a dozen candles and sipping on chai latte’s. Hell yes!
It’s also not long till Christmas festivities begin too – I’m so excited to watch elf and start christmas shopping!
Reflecting back on September – which has been a whirlwind but exciting month. A lot has happened, big things have happened (to me and Joe) which were kind of unexpected and a bit out of the blue. I also finally feel like myself again.
I feel like I achieved a few things off my goals list this month just gone. I have been a bit more consistent on Instagram (I have a love-hate relationship with the gram though), I’ve been continuing to write blog posts in advance – I’ve had a few spare weekends in September so this has helped massively. I planned something for mine and Joe’s seven year anniversary (which has now already happened) and booked a spontaneous last minute trip to Santorini. AND, I made energy balls for the first time!
My weight and slimming world diet has been a bit all over the place if I’m being honest – need to get back on it! As well as return to the gym (kind of dreading going back).
I also really want to do some charity work at weekends, but this will have to be on hold for a little while.
For October’s goals, I’m not setting myself too many as I have quite a few new things happening this month as well as it being my birthday month. So, I’m being kind to myself and having a fairly relaxing month.
1) Continue to write blog posts in advance
2) Become confident in HTML and CSS (Joe (my hub) is teaching me which will be fun). I’m also going on a course next month which I’m rather excited about
3) Settle into new job
Are you setting any goals this month? If so, let me know what they are in the comments below.

I love making goals for myself each month, too. Sounds like you have a lot of exciting stuff coming your way. Congrats on starting a new job! The calendar in your photo is gorgeous, btw!
Thank you for your kind words 😊 x
I’m so in love with the look of that calendar! HTML and CSS can be tricky but I imagine they must be quite fun to learn, wishing you the best of luck on the courses!
