Although I might be on my own by saying this, I am really enjoying the darker nights already. October is such a beautiful month in terms of the autumn lighting and colours and it makes me feel so happy and cosy when I spend time indoors – this is the first autumn as well that we’ve owned our own house, which makes it even more special.
On Monday, I fancied something a little bit different for lunch, so when the girls suggested going out to get a few bits from Tesco, I decided to get an avocado and have that on a bagel with some cherry tomatoes and feta. I’m quite bad with making interesting lunches for work, so it was a nice welcome change to have something a little bit fancier!
2. Wardrobe Clear Out
On Tuesday evening, I came back from work and decided to clear out my wardrobe and get some more of my autumn clothes out as the weather is getting a bit colder. I managed to get a whole bag of stuff together for the charity shop and there is much more order to everything now, which is a weight lifted off my shoulders.
It’s no lie that one of my favourite times of the year is when The Apprentice comes back on TV, which was this week. I was out on Wednesday so I didn’t manage to catch it on the night, but it is definitely something I’ll be looking forward to for cosy nights in.
4. Catch Up’s
I was working in Manchester on Wednesday as I was going to a conference in the afternoon, so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to meet up with Hannah for a bit of a lunchtime catch up. We went for a Barburrito, which was delicious, and put the world to rights in the hour we had.
You might recall that I’ve mentioned on here a few times that my best friend is going travelling to South America and then NZ and Aus, and Wednesday was our final meal with a few of her close friends. We went to Byron Burger in the city centre, and it was really lovely to spend some quality time together before she jetted off.
6. Airport Goodbye
On that note, I took Laura to the airport on Friday to see her off on her travels, and although we both got very teary in the car (the fact that it was 4am probably didn’t help…) it made me feel so proud of her that she is following her dreams and I can’t wait to hear all about her adventures.
After a few more hours in bed after the airport, Jordan and I took a trip to Brighton, which we booked only the week before. We had arranged to go back in August, but the dates didn’t fall so well with me starting my new job, so we postponed it for a bit. I’m going to do a full post about what we did when we were there and why I recommend it as a UK trip.
8. Kiehl’s Mask
My skin and the weather change don’t go hand in hand together, and this year I’ve noticed it more than ever. I’d been using a Garnier clay mask when I felt as though my skin needed a bit more TLC, but I found one by Kiehls that I had kindly been gifted, so I gave that one a go. It is the Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque and I already love it.Kiehl’ss products are always so well made.
