Friday Favourites 10th - 16th October 2015
Oh hey, this post is actually on time today! What a turn up for the books! Don't forget you only have until this evening to enter my birthday giveaway! Win prints, stickers, pencils and more- read the rules on how to enter here!
1. Home Alone.
This week my parents have been on holiday and I have been cat sitting and holding the fort at home. I thought I'd enjoy the time of my own to be super productive and get loads of work done but actually I had so much to do around the house washing, cleaning, cooking, looking after the cat- all the jobs my mum has to do everyday, I barely had time for anything else! Safe to say, I am pretty excited for my parents to come home today, just so someone else has the responsibility of the house not me! Yeah I'm turning 23 tomorrow.
2. Hitting My Blog Peak.
This week I wrote a post titled 22 GIFS All Art Students Should Know About (which you can find here) and I feel like it's the best thing I've written to date. I laughed the whole way through writing it, it got A LOT of love on social media and my friends that I shared my uni experiences with really related to it. I feel like I got it spot on and it'll be a good hitter for some time.
3. Indian Summer.
What is with the weather this week? Each morning has that proper autumnal air feel about it which I LOVE, all crisp and dew on the ground and the promise of winter. But the day, oh the days are like summer all over again!? It's so warm and sunny and suddenly everyone's down the beach at sunset again and talking long scenic walks and taking loads of Instagram photos of sunglasses and bare legs with ankle boots. It's beautiful. Good old British summer. In October.
4. Blogging ABC.
This is not a drill. I repeat, not a drill. I am working on a blogging ABC. I am doing a series of illustrated postcards and prints based on a bloggers alphabet. I'm going to sell them on my Etsy store (find that here) as individual letters for your name or a friend or a blogger you know and as a big print of the whole set. It starts with A for avocado so there's that. Watch out for sneak peeks on my Instagram!
I read a series of blogs (most notably Hannah Gale, Lauren Rellis, Bethany Georgina, My Milo & Me and Robowecop) every night tucked up in bed with a bowl of fruit, lights off and pjs on. It's such a cosy bedtime routine and when nobody has uploaded anything new I have a mini panic attack. It's a stressful time in my life. So this week, being home alone and having so much to do I have fallen straight in to bed minus my fruit and minus my blogging gals words. So currently waiting for my on my Bloglovin account I have 14 blog posts waiting for me to read and I CANNOT wait to get immersed in words with people that write about similar things to me. Love dem gals, find all of them here!
**disclaimer** My photo shows 7, unread blogs, a whole bunch are marked as read that I haven't even seen. Boo internet. Boo.
That's it for another week dolls! See you on the flip side next week after my birthday!!
