Highs & Lows From September

This blog has been a massive high! It’s made me take time out from my day and just stop to think about each post. Opening myself up on the internet is sometimes a scary thought. I’ve definitely had moments where I think I should make it private or change my name to something more creative so people I know don’t find me. But you know what… at the moment, I’ll be okay if someone I know asks me about my blog. Sure… I’ll more than likely be a little embarrassed but I enjoy writing about my life and others have enjoyed reading about it.

I witnessed one of my best friends get married and was so honoured to be her bridesmaid. We went to London to see the Harry Potter play. It was mine and Joel’s first year anniversary! It was a month full of love.

The only low points have just been ones created in my head. I trust the wait and embrace the uncertainty.

Grateful for this beautiful month of new beginnings and will continue to have faith in myself.

My Goals For The Next Month

I’ve loved this September but now the seasons are changing and Autumn is almost here, there’s certainly some goals I would like to achieve in October:

Love my Blog
I definitely have some ideas in mind for future blog posts and hope to work on one or even two every weekend and publish them in the week. Daily blogging has been a great achievement for me (as I rarely stick to anything!) but it’s been hard work keeping up towards the end as my personal life’s been a bit busy.

Eat Healthily
I will learn to cook healthy meals and stick to a routine that works for me.

Harry Potter Book Marathon
I want to have read all the Harry Potter books by the end of the year! Just finished Philosophers Stone… wish me luck!

Yoga & Meditation
I will keep up with my yoga and meditation schedule.

Stay True to Myself
I’m getting a few bad vibes lately and I want to be sure not to let any outside influence affect who I am. Advice from others is always treasured by me but I know who I am and what kind of person I want to be in this life.

Let Go
I’m not too old and it’s not too late. TTC is hard work. Mentally and physically I’m drained this month as we’ve not had the outcome we so desire. So we keep going, we keep trying but the magic is slowly dimming. I know we’ll bring it back and today is just a low point. I have to learn to let go and remember that what will be, will be.

Update: I’m going to learn Italian! 🇮🇹

A Day In London

On this post, I had to bullet point my whole day and funnily enough it fell on the day we went to London to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child! So I’ll start from the top:

  • Woke up at 6am
  • Checked my Instagram & Twitter
  • Fell back to sleep (oops!)
  • Woke up again at 8am
  • Watched Tanya Burr’s New York vlog
  • Got out of bed
  • Made the bed (very important! 😄)
  • Started yesterday’s blog post
  • Ate Cheerios for breakfast
  • Got dressed
  • Applied makeup
  • Packed bag for the day
  • Mum came to pick us up
  • Dropped off at the train station
  • Took train from Southampton to London Waterloo
  • We had to stand on the train all the way to London! Disclaimer: my bad as I have to sit in the direction the train is going… Am I alone in this?
  • Arrived in London
  • Bought some lunch from M&S
  • Walked to Trafalgar Square
  • Sat in Trafalgar Square and ate lunch
  • Lost Joel and then spotted him taking selfies on his own by one of the big fountains 😂
  • Walked to Shaftesbury Avenue
  • Arrived at The Palace Theatre
  • Watched Part One of HP&TCC (it was sooo hot in there!)
  • Finished watching Part One (about 2 hours later)
  • Walked to Prezzo and had lots of yummy Italian food
  • Walked back to The Palace Theatre
  • Watched Part Two of HP&TCC (lots of water this time!)
  • Walked to London Waterloo to catch our train home
  • Sat on train (with seats this time)
  • Ate some fruit
  • Finished & published yesterday’s blog post
  • Fell asleep on Joels shoulder
  • Arrived in Southampton
  • Got in a taxi
  • Arrived back home at 1am!
  • Had the coldest shower ever
  • Jumped into a nice cosy bed
  • Slept for just 5 hours as work in the morning

Phew! Okay, it was a day full of walking, sitting, eating and drinking. Just like most day’s really! haha! The plays were amazing and I feel so lucky to have had the chance to watch them in the theatre.

I also have to say I have a new found love for London again. It’s so pretty and the architecture is incredible. We will definitely be back again over Christmas!

30 Day Writing Challenge

This September I will be taking part in a 30 Day Writing Challenge! I would really love to build up my blog and gain confidence with my writing, so thought what better way than this. Some posts will be shorter than others and some might be essays but I figured that would be okay either way because it would be me and it’s just for fun. I love using this space to share my life and some of these questions are going to be so nice to answer!

If you want to join me, here are the questions below:

I know they’re a little blurry but I couldn’t find a better copy. Also, there are most likely more in depth challenges but this one caught my eye the most ♡

I’ll be uploading everyday at 7pm GMT. I’ve already scheduled a few posts that I enjoyed writing over the bank holiday weekend, so I hope you like them and would love to hear your thoughts!
