Lifestyle | October's Gratitude List

Thumbelina Lillie
October has come and gone in the blink of an eye and wow, have a lot of things happened! Here's a lowdown...

001 | The month started with a whizzing weekend down to Leeds for this year's Bloggers Blog Awards, which you can read more about here. As you may know, I was shortlisted in two categories this year and I came away winning both - which was just unbelievable and is still something I can't quite grasp the concept of. I had such a wonderful weekend surrounded by the loveliest bunch of bloggers known to the blogger-sphere, can I spend every weekend like that, please?

002 | This month seen us start to take our new home life very seriously! As mentioned in my latest post (read that here!) I should be moving into my new place pretty soon. Myself and my partner traveled up to Newcastle to our nearest Ikea for a day full of pots, pans, and a whole load'a meatballs! We scooted our way around the aisles of dreamy home living and picked up lots of necessities for our new pad, now just lemme get in there!

003 | October saw another one of those birthdays happen, and this time it was mine. I wrote a post about 23 Things Turning 23, a list of what I have learned about myself and others over the years. It's totally okay that I still feel around eighteen, right? Because I totally do! I suppose I'm still considered as young in the grand scheme of things but growing up is scary stuff! Life keeps throwing me curveballs, I sometimes think it's like The Truman Show or something...

004 | There's been a rather large change in my life, things have decided to take me down a different path and guess what? I am totally okay with it and I have strangely never felt better. I feel as if a lot of people would let it stop them from advancing in some way. But not me, I'm excited about a brand new fresh start and I know that exciting things will come my way...

005 | Something rather random that I've been grateful for is the colder, darker evenings. Don't get me wrong, I love going out and mingling with my friends as I love being surrounded by the fantastic people in my life. But there is some comfort I have been getting from relaxing on an evening in my cosy pyjamas with a hot chocolate and my laptop in tow. Although I love summer time due to all the brightness, I'm kinda adjusting well to this Autumn life...
