Wow, can anyone believe its the end of August already?! X Factor started again this weekend, which to me, always signifies the end of summer and the beginning of the autumn/winter months. I actually really love the colder seasons. In particular, Autumn. I love the whole transitional feel of it. The changing of leaves, teaming summer dresses with dark tights and chunky knits, brisk walks in the park with the wind making my cheeks pink….coming home from work and putting my pyjamas on no later than 5pm. (Although, to be perfectly frank, I do this all year round, but feel less guilty about it in the colder months!)
Anyway, August has been a so/so month for me. We are still recovering financially from me not working and my student loan running out. I have been working for 2 months now, however, its taking a little bit of catch up time for us to actually have money again. It hasn’t helped that my car needed fixed and that I was also a bit naughty and got a speeding ticket 😦 Own fault I know!!
So, what GOOD things happened in August?! Here are my favourite things –
I finally got my nose stud changed to a ring! I had been trying to do this myself for a couple of months, ending up a bloody, snotty, teary mess and eventually admitted defeated and paid £5 for my piercer to do it for me. I also went to get my labret pierced but because of my posture and the way I hold my head (on a permanent tilt) he advised me against it. Sob! I’m going to go to yoga and try and to improve my posture then go back again.
Ray and I stayed at my Mam’s new house for the first time and coming in after a night out, this made up giggle. Its in her spare room and we just found it so funny. “Come and stay at Mamma’s B&B in Sunny Seaton”. Haha, she’s such a one off!
Martine Geek Shoes!! Have been drooling over these for a while after seeing them on Caroline of Burkatron. When I learned they were sold out I was so sad…..but after seeing they were back in stock I totally broke the bank and bought them. And I haven’t regretted it for a second. Comfortable from the moment I wore them, I am now a Topshop shoes convert.
Cool graffiti. I like the fact it says “marra”. A local word for friend. (Or so I’ve always assumed!)
Face painting fun with Alfie and Ray in a practice run for Ray’s next Subdue event (more on this in an upcoming post)
And just some general cat cuteness for good measure. Because cats make me happy, a lot of the time.
Hope you’ve all had a great August!!
