Well, it’s officially Autumn now, and I’m doing ok. I mentioned how it is my least favourite season and I expected that I’d feel pretty down as we enter the colder end of the year but I'm doing pretty well. It's been a busy but rather lovely few weeks and I'm feeling good. Here's a little look at how September was...
What I wore-I may dislike Autumn but for me it is "The Season of Boots" and that is one thing that makes me happy. I do love a good pair of boots! I actually need to get a load of mine re-heeled, they've sat at the back of the wardrobe for so long and now they need sprucing up! I've been wearing my heeled chelsea boots a lot lately. They were from ASOS a good few years ago now but they've served me well and I get them out every Autumn to pair with my black jeans or leggings. The platform makes them really comfortable and great for all the running around I've been doing lately.
What I ate-This is a recipe I saw on Alison's Blog. She's always posting great healthy meals that sound absolutely delicious so when I saw her post on how to make a Chicken and Chorizo Paella I immediately added the ingredients to my shopping list. It's really simple to make. Basically brown some chicken, throw in some garlic and paprika (add onions if you like but I don't like onions) throw in some chorizo, rice, chicken stock and boil. After 15 mins toss in some peppers and peas and leave for 10 minutes and viola! -honestly it's incredible!
What I read-
I'm still reading The Girl on the Train. I wish I had more time to get through it, there's just not enough time in the day lately! I really love it though, it's easily one of the best books I've read and I really recommend it. I'm determined to finish it this month!
Last month I mentioned that I was re-watching an old favourite of mine, Desperate Housewives. It's finished now and I already miss it, it's such a good series! So without a series to go through I have a little more time and I've been watching a couple of reality type programmes (a complete guilty pleasure of mine!) Ex on the Beach, First Dates and Gogglebox. I'm loving them all. I really love getting a little glimpse into other people's lives and although there's obviously a bit of scripting going on, I still enjoy it.
What I used-I've been really loving the new skincare range from Fake Bake Beauty. I've been using the Skin D Luxe Dream Skin Cleansing Melt daily to remove my make-up and it works like a dream. It melts into the skin and really picks up every little trace of dirt and make-up and it leaves my skin feeling so soft and clean. It contains Taman oil which calms, heals, and reduces scarring promotes skin tissue growth which is great for my damaged skin. I've seen a real improvement since using it.
There is a rumour of an 'Indian Summer' so I will be crossing my fingers for that! I'm just counting down to November now as it's an exciting month full of loads of fun stuff. I think October will be the last month to take it relatively easy.
