Monthly Favourites: September 2017

Guess what plum didn’t realise today is the last day of the month? THIS ONE. So, my monthly faves post is later in the day than the usual so soz about that (lol at the fact I just checked my last monthly faves post and the exact same thing happened at the end of August). Here’s my September highlights…

started: working for myself! Yep, as of 18th, I became my own boss. I’m excited, scared and exhausted which is a fun combo to be around. As of tomorrow I’ll have started a new vlog series all about my life as a freelancer, so go subscribe to my channel if that sounds like something you fancy checking out.

watching: the room at the Prince Charles Cinema! The Room is the best worst movie ever made (it’s hilarious) so we went to see a special screening of it at the PCC in London and it was such a funny night. We even met the director and one of the actors who are both so odd…

also watching: seinfeld. We took a small step back from Seinfeld for a bit to watch other shows, but it’s now a more regular occurrence in our lives and that is A-OK with me

also also watching: gbbo. Yeah, I’ll admit that I like it more than I expected to…although Noel’s posh voiceover voice still catches me off guard. It sounds like he’s putting on that voice we all do when on the phone to anyone we aren’t related to or friends with.

setting up: my new workspace. I have a cute little white desk and rose gold desk accessories. no YOU’RE a basic bitch.

eating: sainbury’s belgian chocolate sponges. YOU GUYS. These are the main reason I’m getting fat and spotty but an argument could be made that they are totally worth it.

reading: comics again. I’ve had to play serious catch up recently because my comic reading has gone down the pan. I do love reading comics but I’m also utterly addicted to pointless scrolling on Twitter and insta.

congratulating: the winners of #BloggersBlogAwards. Ngl, I did want to win the Blogging Guru award that I was shortlisted for but I’m so pleased that one of my fave blogs for inspo won!

Honestly, there’s not a lot more to tell you about! The whole leaving my job and working for myself thing has taken over the vast majority of my life right now and probably will continue to do so for at least another month! But still, here’s hoping that this time next month I’ll have more highlights to share…

What’s made your September super?

    Oh my gosh, The Room! Luke made me watch that not long after we got together. He likes to loan it to people and try and make them watch it.

      Liam saw it as his job at Uni to recruit people to watch it, myself included! If you ever get the chance to go to a screening of it, it’s absolutely hilarious because there’s loads of in-jokes that involve audience participation and I laughed so hard it hurt!

    How have I never heard of The Room?! I feel like that’s pretty poor, haha. Congrats on going freelance! It must be quite a mixture of emotions, but it also must be nice to be your own boss. Hope it all goes really well for you.

      The Room will change your life!

      Thank you – it is nice for sure but also stressful at times as you only have yourself to blame if things aren’t going as well as they could/you have a less productive day!
