5 Things I'm Loving Right Now

Friday, August 12, 2016

I've been finding a lot of joy in the simple things recently, and getting back to basics. We've been so busy over the past couple of months that taking a little time out to do something by myself, for myself, is exactly what I need to recharge my batteries. I am such an only child sometimes, and I really thrive on having a bit of me time! So here are the things I've really been enjoying recently:

READING: One of my 'small goals' for the year was to read 26 books, a target which I am happy to say I have almost reached already. I have always loved to lose my self in the pages of a novel, and since challenging myself I have been picking up more books than ever before. It also means I'm giving my eyes a break from staring at screens, and it helps me step away from pointlessly scrolling through social media.

(Find out what I've been reading via my 'Book Year' posts)

MY BULLET JOURNAL: I don't want to preach, but seriously, my bullet journal has changed my life. I haven't spoken about it on here yet, but I have never been so organised in my whole life. The flexibility is what makes it so perfect for me, as you can use it exactly how you want to. I will be sharing details on exactly how I use it soon, so keep an eye out for that!

AUTUMN INSPIRATION: As much as I enjoy summer, every year at around this time I start getting so, so excited for Autumn. I am already longing to wear some cosy knits, hear the crunch of leaves beneath my feet and have pumpkin spice everything. Over the past few weeks I have been pinning some seriously gorgeous Autumnal inspiration on Pinterest, so I will share my board below in case you want in on some of that goodness:

CHAI LATTES + CUPS OF TEA: Following on on a similar note I have been really enjoying drinking chai lattes and copious cups of tea. I am definitely a seasonal hot drinks drinker - and the second I start thinking about the colder weather, even if it's not actually here yet, I start making lots of warm, comforting drinks. Bring on the cold nights!

STOCKING OUR BISCUIT TIN: Alongside my cups of tea I have been having the odd (read: loads) of biscuits, as I have finally filled our biscuit tin for the first time in 2016. I am a huuuuge fan of Tesco's Chocolate Oaty Biscuits at the moment, but my all time favourites have to be Fox's Golden Crunch Creams or McVities Caramel Digestives - what are yours?

What are you loving at the moment?

Keep me in your timeline:


  1. Oh wow so organised to be thinking of Autumn already. I still need to get the Cursed Child though!

    1. I'm always at least three months ahead when it comes to things like that haha! xx

  2. I can relate to all of those! I can't wait for Autumn, not a fan of summer so looking forward to my jumpers! I've also started reading more before bed rather than being on my phone to try and wind down. I'm really enjoying baking again this month, I got a new baking book so am loving making a variety of things! I've just done a favourites post about what I'm loving at the mo. Love reading these kinds of posts. Nice to be reminded to enjoy the little things when we are a Mummy xx

    1. Yay for baking! That is something I used to absolutely love doing, but haven't in ages although I have a long list of autumnal bakes I want to try so hopefully I will be doing some too xx
