10 Things I've Done This Bank Holiday Weekend




Happy Bank Holiday weekend! I swear it feels like we have had so many recently?! Not that I am complaining!

I've had a really chilled out weekend but at the same time have done quite a lot of things. I thought I would do a little satisfactory list post to update you all on what not so adventurous adventures I have got up to!


          Calvin Klein Socks*

1. BLITZED THE HOUSE
Once I start cleaning, I can never stop. Nothing is better than the smell of a fresh bathroom and tidy kitchen, is there?

2. WENT TO THE CINEMA
I went to the cinema to see Unfriended on Friday night which was one of the weirdest "horror films" I have ever seen. Still not sure whether it was scary or pathetic!

3. BOUGHT A FASHION MAGAZINE
I am very excited to say I landed my first print publication this month. One of my early editorials has been officially published in Dreamingless Magazine which is a print and web fashion magazine. I ordered my copy this weekend and will definitely blog about it when it's here!

 
4. APPLIED FOR JOBS
I am now looking around for a full time role in digital marketing and social media so have been applying for so many. I have really enjoyed being a full time blogger and being my own boss but I now want a new challenge in life! I have a post planned more about my career aspirations so look out for that one.

5. DEMOLISHED HERSHEY'S KISSES
Cookies n' cream infact. Super yummy. Super more-ish. Super worth it.

6. WORE A SPARKLY KIMONO
I am working with New Look at the moment on something special so cannot wait to feature this on my blog.


7. CHILLED ON SUNDAY MORNING IN AN OVERSIZED SHIRT AND LONG SOCKS
I find nothing more comfier and chilled out than wearing the above combo. I have been loving these cable knit Calvin Klein socks from SockShop. They're so pretty on and come in a few different colours too. Perfect for a Sunday.

8. SORTED OUT MY PHONE STORAGE
My poor little iPhone is on its last legs so I completely blitzed that too. It always feel pleasing to delete photos, videos, contacts and text messages. So looking forward to getting a new phone soon though!

9. WENT FOR A WALK IN THE FOREST
I do love a spontaneous plan when I am least expecting it. Therefore, when that 'fancy hanging out?' text popped up on my phone, I was super excited about getting out of the house and into the fresh air of Essex. I saw an owl, picked daffodils, got muddy trainers, saw newts swimming in the forest pond and then proceeded to get locked in the forest for over an hour until the park keeper let us out. It was weirdly quite fun haha!


10. STARTED A MONTHLY BLOG PLANNER
I have decided I need to start being a little more organised with my blog. I have a diary and two notebooks on the go which I update every single day but in terms of scheduling, I can be quite rubbish. I have just started using a monthly blog planner by Busy B which I will show you all soon but it's super easy to see what you have planned for the month ahead and just generally makes things so much easier and less stressful.

Weirdly, being a full time blogger means I take weekends for granted whereas most people really appreciate the two (or in this case, three!) days off. I love my own company and doing my own thing but also love getting out and exploring places so all in all; it's been a lovely weekend. How have you spent your Bank Holiday weekend?

  2. Sounds like you've had a busy Bank Holiday! Yet again I've done nothing apart from blogging, eating pizza and getting let down by a model ;( I hope you find a job soon. I tried looking for digital marketing and social media roles last year but I had no luck. Maybe where you are there are more to apply for and the fact that you're a full-time blogger will also work in your favour too :) Looking forward to seeing this New Look collab you've been working on!

    1. Eating pizza sounds WONDERFUL! Sorry that you got let down by a model. Hate it when that happens especially if you've put so much planning into the shoot. I am a little luckier as I live in London but unfortunately this also does mean competition is more fierce so it's knock back after knock back at the moment! :( Hopefully, I find something soon though!
