★ The Monthly Coffee Date #1 ★

4 September 2019

I do apologise for the lack of posts I have uploaded on my blog recently! I have just been so busy and I just can't seem to find a spare minute to sit down and really dedicate some time to my blog. It does not help that my laptop is playing up and won't charge! So because of that, I am currently writing up this post during my lunch break at work. Anyway, at least this post is finally being written and I hope you enjoy it.

I thought it would be fun to write up a little round up each month where I can sit down with a coffee and update you all on what I have been up to during the past month! August was a fairly busy month so I have lot's to update you all on! I have also added a little goals section to this posts as I thought it would be fun to give myself some goals to try and achieve for the next month!
★ I joined the gym
I don't know how many times I have joined the gym but I have done it again and I am more determined than ever to get fit and healthy. I have been feeling quite down recently and one of the main reasons for that is because I'm just not happy with my body at the moment. I'm hoping by going to the gym and getting into a routine will help with my body confidence.

★ I booked my first tattoo 
I have been waiting for this moment for AGES. I still can't quite believe that I have actually booked my first tattoo! I'm going to be getting it done early October so I have plenty of time to prep myself. I really can't wait and I just know this will be a slippery slope of me wanting many more tattoos (I already have a list!). I definitely will be blogging about my experience and I will be sharing many photos!

★ Our House The Musical is coming together 
If you follow me on social media then you would have seen me talking about this musical. I can't believe we only have three weeks until show week but the show really is coming together. I have created so many special bonds through this show and I cherish each and every one of them. I now can't wait to get back on the stage and I am sure I will be sharing the experience of show week on my blog however I will also be uploading many stories too, so make sure you are following my instagram!

★ Read my favourite books of 2019
I guess this may be a littke spoiler to my 'Reading Round Up' post that will be uploaded this weekend but during August I read a book that is 100% my favourite read of 2019. I honestly can't believe how much I love this book. I felt so immersed into the story and I struggled to put it down! I won't say what book it is but if you want to know, you will have to read my 'Reading Round Up' post this weekend.

★ Going into my third month of my not-so-new job
I still can't believe I have a full time job! I really am enjoying my time (even though the early mornings are a killer). I'm really lucky to work with some great people and I am so thankful for all office experience I am getting! I know it's definitely going to be getting busier at work and I am slowly getting myself prepared for that but so far, I think I'm getting on well!

SEPTEMBER GOALS

1. Get into a gym routine - I really need to get into a routine. I have definitely slacked in the last week due to personal reasons but I really want to get into a routine to work towards my fitness goal! I want to try and go at least 3 to 4 times a week.

2. Eat healthier - This goes hand in hand with my gym routine! I really need to start eating a little healthier! I just snack way too much and I definitely drink too many coffees! I think my first goal is to cut down with the snacks and maybe swap a few coffees with a herbal tea or 2!

3. Become more active on Twitter - I really want to engage with everyone on Twitter a little more. So this is definetly someting I want to improve. Whether that's just uploading a few tweets a day or taking part in a commenting train, I want to become more active!

4. Not care about the numbers on Instagram - I am constantly looking at numbers when it comes to my Instagram! It's getting unhealthy. I obvisouly would love to hit 2K but at the same time, I get really beat up if I lose a follwer! I just want to be happy with who I have following me and not be too caught up on how many people follow me.

5. Start saving more efficiently - I am definitely living from pay check to pay check at the moment and I HATE that. I really want to start saving a little, espeicially as I have a few things planned in the coming months that I defineitly want some spending money for! It also doesn't hurt to start saving for those future big purchases too!

6. Stick to a blog schedule - I have definitely slacked with this over the last few weeks but as of this month (September) I will be uploading two posts a week! One miscellaneous posts (every Wednesday) and one bookish post (every Sunday) every week! I hope you like this way of organising my posts, I think it will give my blog a little more structure! But I definitely need to try and keep up with this schedule!

7. Devote more time to taking photos - I am SO bad at taking photos for my blog posts! It is definitely where I am my most laziness! This is something I hope to improve over the next month!

8. Read more - I really struggle to read more than two books a month and I really want to read more! I'm hoping to put some more time aside for myself so I can read a little more as there are so many books I want to read!

I hope you enjoyed this style of post! I just thought it would be a fun way to update you all on what I have been up to and what I have achieved over the last month! Have you had a busy month? or has it been a fairly relaxing month? I would love to know! Let me know in the comments below!

  1. They're great goals for September. I definitely need to join you with not caring about Instagram numbers, but it's so hard not to get caught up in them! :(

  3. I love the title for your monthly round-up of favs/goals!!! How cute is the name??? Like wow, creativity, we stan ;) I have a lot of similar goals! I need to get back to the gym for weight-lifting as I've been doing running mostly around my neighbourhood (how I prefer it). But, you don't want to waste the membership!! So I want to create a little schedule for myself and stick to it. Totally need to save more as well! Adored this post, and I'm excited to come back for the next monthly coffee date ;)
