May your autumn be full of blue skies and cool walks… bobble hats and family talks.
Fresh air in your lungs and a crunch at your feet… where the working week ends and the weekends meet!

I hope you had a lovely weekend and got out in the fresh air. I needed a chilled weekend and I feel refreshed for the week ahead. I need to get a good fitness routine going which I’m hoping to start tomorrow 🍂

🍂 So it might just be time for the bobble hats to come out of hiding… anyone else live in hats during the colder months?

It’s been so nice to wrap up in layers of cosy jumpers, boots and jackets this week. I love “sweater weather” so much! If that made you laugh, then you’re my kinda people.

What is your go to Autumnal outfit? I’m in the need for inspiration 🍂

If I was a….

This took me forever to make but I loved doing it. I love being creative and I learnt to use CapCut which Isla absolutely loves. She squealed when I showed her this.

I have the template (which I might blog about as the one I followed wasn’t quite accurate) and I have a few sneaky ways of doing things!

I’ve loved seeing everyone else’s version of this and so I had to do my own! And I wouldn’t change a thing… 

What would you be? 🥰

Is there anything more relaxing and calming than this view? The sun setting over the sea and the calmness in the sea too.

Made me smile looking back at my Summer photos today. I’ve had a day of “cosy” as I drank far too much last night at my friends 40th party… I danced all night and walked home with bare feet. The signs of a good night!

I’ve not been out and danced in years. I literally can’t remember the last time I did that! It was a nice break from being Mum & Dad. Letting your hair down is sometimes the best medicine from a stressful few weeks.

What do you do to unwind?

I think it’s really important to love the space where you work, for you spend a long time working in it! When designing my home office area I kept thinking about what makes me happy…

I wanted a space dedicated to my desk. After working on makeshift spaces for 2 years it felt so nice to have a dedicated work space.

I wanted to be by the garden window so I can see the flowers and watch nature about it’s business. I have seen lots of birds and a few squirrels this Spring and Summer.

I wanted the right storage too. Working from home, studying and the blog all result in lots of things I need to put away. I wanted them to have a home. I’ve got the Kallax unit from IKEA with cupboards, drawers and box storage. It’s perfect!

I’ve been doing a bit of a Autumn clean in preparation for the impending season. I love Autumn, it’s my favourite and I want to start it with a clutter free office area (and mind too).

Anyone else feel more productive if their environment is less cluttered?

Everything feels a little uphill at the moment! Don’t you think?

Noah has been especially all over the place this week. One minute happy and next minute shouting at me! Because obviously it was me that stole his PE shorts after his lesson 🤷🏼‍♀️

We keep getting into conversations that just blow up. I’m not sure what is it but I’m hoping we can sort it out soon. It gets to 5 o clock and we start saying devices down, as dinner is nearly ready, and they’re behaviour changes.

I think we might have to go back to basics. Bedtime routines & no device babysitters after school. I am hoping he is tired which is causing him to feel a bit more frustrated than normal.

Lots of emotions this week. I feel sad about The Queen. A bit worried about the changes ahead. Work has been busy & I had a busy week for uni too. So maybe there’s a bit on me to just take a breathe!

Do you ever have days like this? I feel like I need a day where I’m not near other humans… 😂

Creating the TikTok trending video “If I was a”

Yes, I fell in love with this trend, the “If I was a” video trend that I am seeing all over Instagram at the moment. It does take quite some time to make, as there are a lot of photos involved, but once you get the hang of it you do move through it quite quickly. I used a combination of iPhone screen capture, CapCut and Canva. So you can make this video using free apps and tools. I have made assumptions in this tutorial that you have some knowledge of making videos… if you do not know how to add text to a video you might need to quickly Google some bits!

Best JustCBD Gummies for Anxiety – My Personal Favourites

CBD is a chemical compound that is derived from the cannabis plant. It is completely safe and not to be mistaken with THC, which is also found in cannabis plants but is the chemical substance that makes you experience psychoactive side effects, also known as feeling “high”. All the CBD gummies at JustCBD online store are completely safe and only one of them actually has THC added to it, but in a legal dose.
