The September Update

Well hello there, September. 

This week marks the turn of the Summer, the cooler weather is starting to creep in (I can actually sleep under the covers now without overheating), XFactor is back, the stores are full of new autumnal pieces and I’m starting to get reacquainted with this thing called a “jacket”…  I love autumn but I have to say I’m going to miss the feeling of sunshine on my skin, rarely wearing shoes, wearing the prettiest floral summer dresses and picnics in the park. I don’t think I’ll ever forget the summer of 2017, as it really has been one of my favourites, full of friends, nice memories and new beginnings. But before we jump straight in to what lies ahead, I thought I’d recap below on the past month, and what’s been going on (and why I’ve been so quiet over here!) 


The past couple of months saw the start of something new, and it’s really exciting. My new side-gram @hellooctoberathome was born just over a month ago, on a spur of the moment whilst typing out #hellooctoberathome on to my interiors captions. I thought it would make a great Instagram handle and upon checking, lo and behold it was available. I snapped up the handle, unsure of whether I would EVER use it – to only go the whole hog and begin posting on it ten minutes later. Sometimes the best decisions aren’t mulled over for weeks or heavily planned out and just come from a place of pure joy, and that’s what Hello October At Home is all about, my new home which brings me utter joy. If you haven’t already, come over and join the community. I spend so much time sourcing the perfect pieces to fit our home that it’s nice to have a place to showcase it all, especially as interiors is a huge passion of mine. On this account I can go heavy on the interior chat without boring those who follow @hellooctober (new account name – finally ditched the “xo” woo!) for lifestyle and fashion musings.

Gym & Juice

Outside of running all things Hello October related, I’ve been really prioritising my fitness journey this summer. It’s something I plan on continuing for the foreseeable future, rather than just the season. I’m stronger than I’ve ever been before and I’m actually starting to enjoy working out rather than moaning the whole way through a PT session. I’ve even started doing at home work outs regularly and my diet and eating routine has improved so much these past few months! I actually started filming my meals over a few weeks as well as my work outs (you can watch here and here) and it’s something I’m actually enjoying and throwing myself in to without fear of judgment and I’m feeling really good about that.


Oh, did you hear? I actually went on holiday! Not the kind where we bring the camera and I work and shoot whilst I’m away. The kind where you lay in the sun, eat Pringles, swim and read books over and over in Portugal until it’s time to go home. It was utter bliss. We took a few photos so they may make their way over here sometime soon if you’re interested? Admittedly I did document my outfits in this video here if you’re interested in getting a glimpse in to our vacay.

The Calm Before The Storm

Of course I’m doing that thing where I psych myself up before a big workload, but September means it’s nearly October and October means VLOGTOBER. Are you even ready? I’ve loved documenting my life so much this summer that I’m actually excited to ramp things up again in October and December. I’m also hoping a little something might change around these parts ready for the occasion so keep your eyes peeled (and cross your fingers for me)!

LAST MINUTE EDIT: Oh, and we have a new puppy… More on that soon.
