J'ADORE

Monday, 4 September 2017





Hey folks,

Happy Monday to you all!

Now for once, I actually don't have much to say (which will probably be a bit of a relief for a lot of you lol - finally saved from my endless waffling!) See, I'm currently sitting on the bus on the way to my blood test (christ, I need to learn how to drive) and I'm trying to compose a blog post on something somewhat profound or poignant, but I have nothing. Nada. Zilch. Which is odd because usually there is at least one thing that has happened in the past week that has fucked me off so much that I've had to sit and vent about it lol!

But nope, it appears that isn't so today. It seems having a blogging schedule is all well and good - so long as you actually have stuff to talk about lol! 

I'm just staring out of the window now and thinking about how quickly my intermission, and this summer has gone. In just under a month I will be back at uni, and to me that's absolute madness! Thinking about the end of Summer has also made me think about how much I love Autumn, especially September. So maybe I'll chat abit about why I love September. I've sort of touched on this before in this blog post - but incase you don't know, I think September is my favourite month of the year.

Every time September comes around again, I really do notice how much my mindset changes. Whilst we mourn the end of summer, I also can't help but anticipate the coming season, which I associate more with new beginnings then I do January, the actual beginning of a new year lol! I think this is to do with the fact that School academic calendars are so deeply ingrained in me, that I also associate the start of the academic year with the start of a new year for me. I tend to make new resolutions in September, new goals and try to adopt new mindsets. So yes, I guess I have 'September Resolutions', that resemble the old new years resolutions. Weird? Probably lol! Right now I can think of 3 resolutions I'd like to work on.

1.) Prioritise my mental wellbeing and self care. - As you know, mental illness has been such a huge part of my life this past year especially, and I think after everything, I've finally realised how important self care, and recognising the need to take care of your mental wellbeing is. Whether it's working on my sleep hygiene to make sure I have a proper sleeping pattern, or making sure I take time for myself for things I enjoy, I've realised just how important it is to just take care of myself. 

2.) Keep my blogging up. - Since I've been home from uni, I've had a lot more time to work on my blog and it's actually become a really important part of my life, making me realise just how much I've missed doing creative things. I really want to make sure that when I go back to uni, I take the time to work on my blog, to do something for me. Not only have I enjoyed taking outfit pics and that creative side of things, but I've also loved having a place to vent. To write honestly about my health, things that are important to me - I love having a space where I can write about anything and everything, and I think it's so important that I keep that space active.

3.) Take more risks. - This is a resolution that I'm currently working on. See I'm about to take a risk (more on that Friday), and being someone who is extremely risk adverse, it's incredibly fucking scary! But as my counsellor says, life is always about risk. If you're not prepared to take risk, then it's very hard to grow. So I think now is the time to take that leap.

So I guess I'm trying to turn over a new leaf, with the start of my new academic year in a few short weeks, I want as much as possible to grab as many opportunities as I can with both hands.

So I guess thats why J'adore September. Wheyyyy I was able to link my blog post with my outfit after all haha! Andddd just as we're pulling up to the hospital! Brilliant or what?! Haha!

A little bit of an 'all over the place' blog post today, but please don't hold it against me - I have a beauty post prepared for Wednesday and another Friday Thoughts prepared for (you guessed it) Friday, which will also have details of my giveaway! 

Do you guys love September too? Or are you avid Summer lovers who hate the coming Autumn season? Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time,
Bisous <3
