MONTHLY | September Loves

September is over and Autumn has now officially arrived..

Well September whizzed by didn’t it?! I can’t believe that we are now entering Autumn.. As you’re reading this, I am most probably loving life chilling on the beach/by the pool in Morocco! So I’m getting in my last little bit of sun. I hope you enjoy September’s Monthly Loves and apologies if some of my stats are wrong, I’ve had to write this post a few days in advance of the end of September!

Sharing The Love

Blog: Jodie’s blog has always been one of my faves. I can honestly say that I’ve enjoyed reading every post she’s written! This one on being a mindful consumer and blogger was super interesting and has really made me think and take away a few points. Her point about haul’s was spot on and I cannot wait to see more style videos from Jodie. I’m always conscious about how full and unnecessary my wardrobe is, so anything like this spurs me on to have a little clear out! It’s always super hard to choose just one favourite blog post, so make sure to check out my loves section via BlogLovin’ to see all the other contenders!

Instagram: Without a shadow of a doubt, my fave Instagram photo was this absolute beauty by Lucy. Just look how stunning this Brooklyn Bridge sunrise shot is?! Also, the leopard coord completes this photo perfectly and can you tell I’m obsessed yet?!

Twitter: This very funny Footloose tweet made me chuckle! I die when people get lyrics to songs wrong, but when they make them up to be this funny – I can’t cope! Some people’s sense of humour is just great and most of the time, Twitter can be a very entertaining place to be.

My Most Loved

Blog: August Loves! I think there’s only been one month when one of my monthly posts was not my most loved! Which is really awesome. So many of you are constantly informing me that my monthly post’s are some of your faves – which I really appreciate. That makes me feel all warm and fuzzy!

Instagram: Two of my Instagram posts are joint first for the month of September! This one and this one. Both received over 100 likes, which I’m aiming for each time I post.. It looks as if everyone is really enjoying fashion content/more personal photos featuring myself, rather than product shots! I will take this on board.

Twitter: This was my most loved tweet in September. It looks like everyone loves New York and is just as excited as I am! SO many fellow bloggers visited NY in September and I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t at all jealous.. I have been dying to go for about ten years now, so for a date to finally be confirmed is super exciting for me!

Monthly Favourites

Fave Beauty Product: Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lipstick. I simply adore this cult classic lipstick – it’s the best shade!

Fave Skincare Product: Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Cucumber and Green Tea. I recently got back into spritzing this each morning and it’s so refreshing.

Fave Song: Electricity with Dua Lipa – I’m not listing all the other artists, cos I’ll be here forever! Loving this song right now and Dua Lipa is just awesome isn’t she?!

Fave Food: Cadbury Joy Fills – these are delicious and if you haven’t tried them yet, then what are you doing?! They almost remind me of breakfast cereal, a little like Krave.

Fave Restaurant: The Swan. I know there’s quite a few of these, but the one near me serves the most amazing food ever. I went there recently and had baked camembert (of course), but each time I’ve visited I’ve been seriously impressed.

Fave Purchase: This gorgeous beaded jumper from H&M! So big, so comfy, so casual/glam – I love.

Fave TV Show: The Great British Bake Off of course! How could it be anything else?!

Fave Film: The Greatest Showman. I watched this with a couple of friends at an outdoor cinema at the beginning of the month and it was amazing!

Fave Event: Glow in the Park. A few of us did this and it was so much fun! Fun exercise – what’s better than that?!

Fave Place: Center Parcs! Specifically the rapids.. We took a family weekend break towards the end of September and it was so much fun!

New Discoveries

Blog: First of all, Hannah is SO lovely! I love finding supportive people through social media and Hannah is definitely one of those! I’ve recently started reading her blog and I’m loving it. I really enjoy everything Hannah chooses to write about and I really love her writing style. If you need a new blogger to follow then I recommend checking Hannah out!

Instagram: Becky’s feed is super Autumnal right now and it’s giving me all of the Autumn vibes – I love it! If you need to inject more Autumn into your home feed, then I suggest giving Becky a follow. I promise that you will not be disappointed. 

Instagram: I’m loving Patricia’s fashion forward feed! I’m a sucker for a fab outfit photo and completely adore fashion, so of course I was going to love Patricia’s Instagram! If you enjoy following more fashion based content, then I highly recommend checking her account out.

Instagram: I love how Bex edits her images – such a dreamy theme! With a mix of both beauty and lifestyle, Bex’s feed is so lovely and one I’m so glad I found. If you’re a beauty and lifestyle lover, then you’ll really enjoy following Bex’s account. 

Instagram: Siobhan’s feed gives me life! So much colour but still subtle – which is my favourite kind of colourful feed. They’re almost muted and pastel, but still pack a punch. I find this style so clever and I’m in awe of it! I cannot pick a favourite photo because they’re all beautiful. You all need to follow Siobhan!

Looking Forward To

Booking: Hopefully a New Year’s Eve trip away with friends! We were looking at Edinburgh, but it’s turning out to be a bit too expensive realistically.

Celebrating: Halloween! I love Halloween and when I move out I will be decorating my house during the month of October..

Watching: Whitney at the Hippodrome! I’m hoping it will be really good, so I will be reporting back on that one.

Seeing: All of the Halloween goodies in the shops!

Buying: A pumpkin to carve for Halloween! We did this last year and mine turned out pretty well, so fingers crossed that happens again this year.

Eating: At Aluna, Bristol. I will have a blog post coming hopefully this month, so keep your eyes peeled for a review!

Monthly Summary

Instagram: 3.2k. I knew I’d jinx it as soon as I posted last month’s post! I dropped a lot of followers, but oh well! I’m trying to concentrate on loving my own feed and posting photos that I love. I’m making that my main focus from now on, as well as engaging with others more!

Blog Views: 700+. Still not reaching the 1,000 that I really want, but I will soon! Fingers crossed.

BlogLovin’ Count: 610. Slowly crawling towards that magic 1k and I’m so excited. Hello all new followers and I hope you enjoy my blog!

Blog Posts: 10! I’m quite impressed with all the blog posts I produced last month and I’m slowly but surely catching up with my blog, which is making me a lot less stressed!

Twitter: 467. Not sure where that little surge came from, but I love it! I’m slowly remembering to keep using Twitter and I need to keep this up/continue improving on using it more.
