Hello, October. Sure came around quick didn’t it? I must say I hadn’t been as prepared for this month as I have been in the past years, no pre-filming, no pre life organising. The real reason for this being that September was a bottomless pit of projects and puppy training. Who’s the idiot that gets a new dog in her busiest quarter? *raises hand*. Yeah, that would be me. Somehow fast forward three weeks and we’re most of the way through October, I’m 13 videos down and this “October Goals” style post I wanted to publish 24 days ago just never made it past the draft stage. It’s a funny month, and it feels to me as though time is constantly running away with me, like life speeds up around 20mph faster than I can keep up with and isn’t there ALWAYS a curve ball that gets thrown at you that you weren’t quite expecting!? It’s months like this where I’m so thankful that I invested in therapy and am comfortable with not always being in control, right now it’s all about rolling with the punches and focusing on my goals. Speaking of…
Aside from pumping out 16 videos this month (OMG we’re almost there!), I have a few other plans up my sleeve for the upcoming month, this first one is one I cannot wait to unveil and finally have the time to finish off!
Spruce Up This Old Gaff: Yup, H.O is getting a brand new look! I’ve changed so much this year, there isn’t a soul alive who hasn’t seen that. And with that, I’ve refreshed my YouTube page and my Instagram has followed suit. They both match, but then there’s hello-october.com that’s not quite in sync with them, she’s feeling a little lonely and she’s definitely in need of a mani-pedi and a new “do” – more than just a little TLC. Over the next month I’m hoping this blog will start to reflect me a little more, and whilst the process of it is currently making me want to pull me teeth out (I’m not the best at creative decisions – let’s put it that way), I’m so excited for H.O 6.0 (lol as if this is only my sixth rebrand. I’ve definitely rounded down on this occasion!) and to start sharing again.
Get Back in the Gym: This was actually a plan for this month, but it’s definitely one that’s been de-railed. When you have your fingers in a lot of different pies, you really have to pick and choose a few things to work on at one time, otherwise you end up doing a mediocre job at 12 billion things. Fitness is one of the “dippers” in my life – along with healthy eating and being a domestic goddess – it’s not a priority 100% of the time but I’m always excited to come back to it. Over the summer it was more of a focus for me and I felt really great. I’m looking forward to getting back on the treadmill come November!
Plan My Next Tattoo(/s): Despite being back to my tattooist twice in the past two months I fully plan on making a couple more trips over the next couple of months. It’s something that I love so much and definitely plan on sharing more of on my blog going forward (if you’d like? Let me know in the comments!?), from photos and Q&A’s to the occasional video. On that note, I posted a new tattoos and piercings video here if you want to have a watch!
Office Revamp: Though my office is around 90% done, I still have so many ideas for it and I’m so excited to have some more time to work on it and to make it a really special space. I think I might so a video soon before I do any more alterations to give you a sneak peek but also an idea of what it looks like before I do anything more! I’m also excited to be sharing some new interiors posts on here soon – it’s been so much fun furnishing this place I can’t wait to chat about it more!
What would you like to see more of next month? x
P.S If I hadn’t already mentioned (lol) I’m uploading a lot of videos this month BUT what’s also very exciting is that I’m going to be donating all of the ad revenue from my YouTube videos from October to charity for Breast Cancer Awareness month!
