October Insta-month and Life Update!


Hey Everyone,

I hope you are all well! Today is November 15th , marking the first half of the month! I can't believe how quickly it has passed!! I have kept myself occupied at college. I have been having plenty of projects and assignments fired in my direction, which is one of the main reasons I haven't been around. In the next two weeks I have one assignment due, 3 exams and a presentation to be done, so I've a lot to be stressing about! I am looking forward to being off for Christmas and having a break for 5 weeks.

Shockingly, I have not shared my instagram photos for October. At the end of the month I usually share my photos of the month, making this blogpost a fortnight late!! Better late than never, I suppose! If you would like to follow me on Instagram, my page is available here! 

I have to say that October was one of the best months this year. For some reason, I got into a very festive and halloween-y mood. I have taken an abundance of leafy posts, and typical pictures of autumnal things. I also had a habit of making our student house cosy by lighting candles around the house. I love scented candles.

I decided to invest in a notebook to keep organised for the year ahead. It has definitely be working. This is definitely my number one tip for staying organised if anybody is having trouble.

I ended up going for dinner to a Chinese buffet called "Jimmy Chungs" in Dublin with friends. It ended up being a great night. I ate so much food and I have written a review here! 

My dad got me a whole load of Lush products, all which have been reviewed on the blog!!! I got a bath bomb called "Lord of Misrule", a bubble bar called "Sparkly Pumpkin", a shower jelly "Night wing" and the "lord of misrule" in shower gel form. I have to say I have enjoyed all of the products. Would definitely recommend them. Read the reviews which were published at the end of October for a more in depth review.

It was my friend Brian's birthday on October 26th. We decided to surprise him early so he wouldn't expect anything! We ended up having a night filled with princess cake (which included a tiara that Brian still has), pumpkin carving and a trip bowling. I played very well in the first game, however that soon declined when we started the second game. After the game we got a cute group photo.

I got so festive on Halloween week. I ended up making some spooky cupcakes and I dressed up twice during the week. The first time I did a full face of skull make up. It was very hard to get in my contact the first time. The second time I managed to insert the contacts. But I decided to do just half my face.

It was national Cat day at the end of the month, so of course I had to upload an obligatory picture with my cat. Finally my progress in the gym has been on-going. I am very content with my progress.

What have you been uploading to instagram lately?
