Once again another month is over and we are creeping up ever so quickly to the end of 2018 – I mean where has it gone?? As the end of November is in sight this Friday and we will be saying hello to December it means autumn is officially DONE for another year. Well to me anyway. Autumns prime time = October and now we are going into the full on Christmas mode (yes I have already started listening to Christmas music!!). I keep walking past houses and seeing Christmas trees and you do that little “OHMYGOD It’s actually Christmas in less than a month” panic. December for me is my favourite because its my birthday, Christmas and New Years ~ one big celebration basically ~ but I will miss all the autumnal colours on the trees.
November has been a bit of an odd one, because things have ramped up a level at uni but the month has gone sooooo fast that I am like what has just happened?? Some small things include me deciding to stick to on Instagram theme and way of editing and accepting my photos are OK (!!), I’m A Celeb has just started and I now totally revolve my evenings around that, and that Starbucks is my new gem – soz Costa.
I have always tried to go to the gym at least twice a week, because this time last year I let my body go a little and then decided NO I need to do something! After Christmas last year I started prioritising my body and the way I looked as I wanted to feel GOOD about myself. And I toned up and was super happy with the way I looked. Uni has not helped though, and Christmas is fast approaching and I know I will end up eating and drinking triple my body mass so I am going to try to stick to a consistent and rigorous exercise routine to make sure I don’t let myself go.
I have also settled this month to having a new mindset towards my blog. Before I started uni I wanted to upload every other day and post frequent content. But what was I thinking?!?!?! It was impossible to keep up and I can now see that it was way too frequent (soz for the spam). I have lately been taking time with my posts, making them more thoughtful, improved their layout and photography and I am bloody happy with it!!! YAY!
December will always and forever just be a hectic month. We are talking Christmas shopping, my birthday, seeing family, working to cover the excess amounts of bookings we have at work, Christmas and Boxing Day, New Years day and then deadlines the week after I coming back. BUSY BUSY BUSY. I have tried before to do Blogmas but I can definitely say I am not going to be doing it this year if I want to keep my sanity!! QUALITY > QUANTITY! But I actually love it being a busy month. There are things to look forward to, lots of partying and celebrating, lots of food and drink and just lots of FUN. I have taken November to prep the blog posts I want to do in December (or at least some of them) and basically catch up on work to make December a little bit easier!
