September to December is truly, honestly, my favourite time of year. All of my loved ones birthdays are in these months, and of course Christmas is on the way. I have no shame - I love the Christmas season more than anything. I copied the below prompts from A Rosie Outlook's blog as it's such a great way to put in writing all the thoughts and feelings I have at the moment.
Cooking :: lots of vegetarian meals. I thought I'd try the green plan at Slimming World, and within one week I lost 3lbs and felt a lot less bloated.
Drinking :: more water, and less Diet Coke. And some wine...
Reading :: How to Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran, although I'm struggling to keep myself interested in it at the moment as I rarely give myself time to read.
Wanting :: to get my 1 and a half stone award soon! #stopeatingcake
Looking :: forward to Autumn really kicking in.
Playing :: The Simpsons: Tapped Out and Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff. I am hopelessly addicted to both.
Deciding :: whether to get The Sims 4 or not... I am a massive Sims lover, but I am also 23 O:)
Wishing :: that we didn't need to save so much to buy a house. It feels so far away.
Enjoying :: Sunday's at home by myself whilst Ash spends the day fishing. Mini pamper days every weekend!
Waiting :: for our holiday to Zante in a couple of weeks.
Liking :: Barry M's new Autumn nail polish colours. I bought Chilli and Chai.
Wondering :: how life passes so quickly? It only feels like a few weeks ago since we were celebrating New Years Eve, and now I'm on the countdown to Christmas again.
Loving :: binge watching TV series with Ash. We're currently re-watching This Is England 86 & 88.
Pondering :: which dresses to sell on eBay... I have some which I absolutely love, but haven't worn for over a year.
Considering :: cutting my hair short, but I'm scared.
Watching :: the final season of True Blood! This season has been so good, I don't want it to end!
Hoping :: for a dry day on Friday, as we are holding a party in a marquee for 700 people at work...eek
Marvelling :: at my niece, who has her first day of school tomorrow. She is the sweetest little girl and I feel so proud of her.
Needing :: to find a way to stop my left hip from getting so tight when I'm exercising.
Smelling :: Marc Jacobs - Honey, but looking for a new Autumn/Winter scent as Honey is so summery.
Wearing :: my new Star Wars PJs from Primark and Hard Rock hoody from San Francisco. Lazy nights at home are the best!
Following :: @natgeo on Instagram! http://instagram.com/natgeo
Noticing :: tiny cobwebs covered in dew in the mornings
Knowing :: that life is very short, and it's important to help people every day.
Thinking :: about my career future, and wondering if I need to change direct.
Feeling :: tired, but so happy.
Admiring :: my Mum, as always.
Sorting :: our San Francisco and Las Vegas photographs into order for our scrap book.
Buying :: a few 'transitional' clothes. I finally bought a kimono from New Look and the black and white check Dorothy Perkins trousers that Carrie rocked recently.
Getting :: excited for sunshine and cocktails in Greece.
Bookmarking :: Vegetarian recipes and cross stitch patterns.
Disliking :: Katie Hopkins and everything she thinks she stands for.
Opening :: lots of parcels because I buy too much online!
Giggling :: over Instagram videos of parrots and cockatoos before bed with Ash.
Snacking :: on sugar free jelly and frozen red grapes.
Coveting :: an iPod! I haven't owned one since I bought my first iPhone years and years ago, but I really want a cute yellow Nano for my new car.
Hearing :: The Gaslight Anthem's new album, Get Hurt.
