Life Lately…Autumn 2015

I don’t normally do this but now that October is here and Autumn is officially begun I felt like ‘taking stock‘ and sharing a little of my personal life :

Autumn trees 2015
Drinking : Copious Earl Grey Tea

Looking: At Instagram far too much
Playing: Nine Inch Nails ‘Hesitation Marks‘ on repeat
Cringing: At some of Trent’s lyrics
Deciding: I need to curb my spending
Wishing: I had more money
Enjoying: Watching Fraiser over from the beginning
Waiting: For my creative writing class to start next week
Liking: Having my hair dark again
Wondering: If I’ll manage to grow it out this time
Loving: Rust & red eye-shadow and my certain Someone
Considering: My Goals for the end of the year
Watching: All the dodgy sequels of The Crow
Marveling: At how bad they are

Tired Oct selfie

Hoping: That my hip pain will pass soon
Needing: Some self-care and pain relief!
Questioning: What I did that made it hurt so bad.
Smelling: Valentino Uomo, my winter scent.
Wearing: Crochet , blanket capes & hiking shoes (but not all at the same time)
Noticing: The leaves change and the autumn light
Getting: Mentally prepared for winter (I dread the cold dark months)
Bookmarking: Lots of Lisa Eldridge Make up videos on you tube.
Coveting: the Lorac Pro Matte palette
Disliking: Depending on public transport

Taking Stock was inspired by my friend Chiaki and is a regular feature at Meet me at Mikes. Do you take stock too? How’s your Autumn looking?
