The Sunday Post: Taking It All In


Well, didn't June just fly by? It feels like yesterday I was stressing about packing and voting and now it's bloody JULY. I thought I'd bring back The Sunday Post again this month and make it a bit of a monthly thing, I wish it could be weekly but shockingly this chatterbox does run out of things to say eventually! So is monthly okay? That way we can really break things and have a good old catch up!

WE MOVED!
If you missed my last post, you might not have heard (although I can't deny I have pretty much plastered it everywhere by now) that we've moved! There are moving vlogs on my youtube channel if you fancy a watch and a little snoop at what life in June was like, and I haven't vlogged since as I've been enjoying nesting and soaking it all up. The weather has been beautiful this month which made paying a fortune for the extra garden space so worth while (though I have barely used my office due to working in the sun and I am now VERY VERY tanned...) and I've been trying just to take things at a slower pace, which brings me to my next point...

SLOWING DOWN
This month it felt especially important to practice the art of slowing down a little, busy months just fly by and I always feel like I missed everything. I didn't want to move in to our lovely new home and then have to fly off for work, straight away. So I've been focusing on my content from home, and really taking my time to enjoy our new space. There's something to be said for not being so go go go all the time and working silly hours. I'm always a fan of balance, but this month I've really enjoyed being a little off balance in a good way. My thoughts feel clearer, my mood is better and hopefully that will start to filter through to my online world too (if it hasn't already!)

LOVING INSTAGRAM
One platform that I've loved posting on this month is Instagram, I know it's not every creators favourite right now, but I can't get enough. I feel like I'm really starting to find my place again online, after feeling really lost for the past year, and I'm loving not worrying too much about things being perfect or polished and just posting the photos I like. I've also gotten really into Nala's Instagram again which has been super fun because I just post anything on there and I love it.

AMAZING PROJECTS
This year I made a pact with myself to be truly selective with the projects I work on after putting so much pressure on myself to say yes to everything I wanted to do last year. Even if I means I have to turn down things that I love, I wanted to really enjoy my projects and not have too much going on all at the same time. I know I sound like a bit of a dick saying that as not everyone has that luxury, but I'm sure we've all been there where work was so busy we didn't enjoy it anymore. I think it's important to take control of your workload where you can, in the best way for your business. I'm so fortunate that I have full control, and for me it's quality over quantity. Six months in I'm so happy with my decision and this month I got to work with Selfridges on this post here and Boots on their Everyday Thoughtfulness campaign. I'm really excited for my July projects and I'm even more excited to finally get the ball rolling again on a new project of my own! It's very early stages, but I'm excited to get the ball rolling on something I've been dreaming up for a while...

THE EVER EXPANDING WARDROBE: 
Seeing as we moved in to a new place with a wardrobe triple the size of the last ones, I couldn't resist filling those extra hangers. The summer style bug well and truly caught me this year and my summer dress wardrobe has pretty much taken over the wardrobe. I picked up a few bits from ASOS, as well as a tonne from Urban Outfitters which you can see in this haul right here. I also picked up this dress from Realisation Par which I posted on Instastories today (I'll try and post it on twitter for those of you catching up over 24 hours later).

  2. I have started using Instagram a little more recently, but it is still frustrating with the algorithm! Moving house is so exciting :)

  5. This sounds like a lovely month! I definitely need to take a leaf out of your book with the slowing down - I feel like I have been all over the place recently, rushing from one thing to the next and not giving my all to any of it. Going to have to go and watch your haul now, I need some more summer outfits :) Sophie xxx

  7. We moved recently too, and are loving every second of our new home! I didn't even realise you had a vlog channel - so I've just made myself a rather large cup of tea and am sitting down to your moving vlogs! Can't wait!

  8. Sounds like you've had a busy month :) Nothing can be very stressful but, I also see it as a big adventure. You're moving someone completely new, waking up in a different place everyday. It's such a fun thing because you can think about decorating and being creative :) Turning your house into a home.

    Have a great week :)

  11. I've been watching your moving vlogs and it actually made me want to move (how crazy is that?!)
    But I think it's good that you slowed down a little this month because what makes the stress of moving worth it, is being able to enjoy your new place and taking the time to make it a home.

  15. Quantity over quality! This was a lovely read and I do like reading posts without a specific 'theme'... this is more just like a friendly chat with friends ;)
