so i am aware that i have NOT been a great blogger recently. i have been very busy, and as the evenings are getting darker outfit photos are a no no. i have SO many outfits to photograph, so it's all coming - i just have to rope in a friend or family member for a session. anyway, i thought i'd do a quick catch up post for you all, with a few things i'm loving and a few life updates.
i'm not really that great with change. i like a good plan, and i'm not very good at being spontaneous. this can make me a massive pain, and also pretty panicky when things all of a sudden change. but recently, a few of these pesky changes have come into my life, but it's all good. i am changing jobs, which is scary as i love love love my current position, and i will be moving out soon. it's scary, and very grown up, but it's going to be great to have my own space and also to be closer to my boyfriend and my friends. i will embrace the change and try not to be TOO much of a psycho about it...
Learning to relax:
i'm not sure if any other graduates feel this, but coming from university where you could pretty much say half of your degree was relaxing, to having a full time job is hard. i really enjoy working hard, and i want to make sure i do as much as i can to progress, but sometimes i think i forget how to relax in my spare time. i've worked out a fantastic little routine, which may seem obvious to some, but took me some time... going to the gym has REALLY helped me switch off, and putting down my phone. i am ALWAYS in front of a screen, and recently i've been making sure i put my phone away for around an hour and do something else.
this links into the above, but i have a new hobby. colouring. i've seen it around for a while, but it wasn't until my boyfriend's mum (hi sharon!) was doing it that i got really interested. i bought a basic 'colouring for adults' book from amazon, and started to get creative. at first i felt it might be a bit silly, but then an hour passed and i was hooked. time really flew by, and i was absolutely silent and fascinated for the whole 60 minutes. i feel like i'm back at school, and it's fun doing something i haven't done for years. you can get some amazing books, like hipster colouring. don't laugh at me until you try it...
i am SO HAPPY that it's starting to get colder. i know it's horrific to wish cold weather and darker days, but i know that half of you reading this have already picked your new winter coat and eyed up a pair of black boots. let's just say my autumnal wardrobe is full of khaki. i just want to wrap up warm, drink hot chocolates and be the true basic bi$$$h that i am. look out for my instagrams.
i'm glad we caught up. i promise to be a better blogger.
until next time xo
