A Simple Sunday || The October Round-Up

October 29, 2017

Another month gone! It seems like the year is moving so quickly! As you might have noticed, I haven’t posted one of these in a little while, because I decided in the end that it might be better as a monthly sort of round of post instead of weekly. So this time round, I’m sharing some great things about the month of October!

Blog Posts I Loved

I’m always really excited to read posts, and the I’m always happy to share when I read great things! This month I’ve got a few great ones for you, starting with Kristabel’s wonderful post featuring 30 Women of Color to follow on Instagram. I sometimes feel a little out of touch with my fellow ladies, so it was nice to see some of the content my pal has been enjoying. I  definitely followed a few of them! Another post I really enjoyed was Liv’s post about doing a shopping ban. I did one at the start of the year and it’s really changed the way I think about the clothing I’m buying. I used to feel like I had to go shopping every week just to have something to share on the blog, but these days, I’m more about investing in pieces and really styling them well! Speaking of shopping and styling, I loved Lauren’s post about sustainable fashion and ethical buying. Her point of view is so interesting and definitely one that I’ve thought about a bit; it’s not just because I took the photos she used, I swear! You should definitely give it a read!

A Little Bit of Life

I checked a big thing off of my 30 before 30 list, and I’m going to do a proper post all about it, but I finally got a tattoo that I’ve been dreaming of for absolutely ages! Years even! I’m so incredibly happy with it, so once it heals up, I’ll certainly share. Other than that big news, I’m having a chilled out (slightly hungover) weekend on the couch with my hubby and our cat, watching Stranger Things and getting excited for next month! We’ll be having friends over for Thanksgiving this year, so I’ve been busy menu planning of course. I’m thinking I might do a vlog about it as well… would you be interested in seeing that? Let me know in the comments!

Pieces I’m Lusting After

Okay, so I’m trying to be a bit better about blowing all my money the second I get paid, but there are a few things I’m definitely going to need in my wardrobe! I’m also slightly determined to not end up in all black this winter. I feel like I do have this habit of doing that, so I’m definitely loving these berry, navy, and emerald kinds of colors that are popping up at the moment! I did a big wardrobe clear out as well, so now I’m trying to really invest in pieces that I love, and will wear a lot! I’ve had my eye on some of these things for a little while now, so maybe they’ll make the cut!

      I’m obsessed with the cat purse! It’s so cute! And thanks, I’m so pleased with how the tattoo came out! I’m only 3 episodes into Season 2. Binged a bit, but then decided to take it slow!
