So here’s a look back on the month past of all the highlights, lowlights and everything in between.
Highlights: As you may have noticed I’ve recently completed a redesign of my blog, which was something I wanted to do for a while. But apart from this, October was another relatively quiet month. I’ve been loving getting in the kitchen and making lots of goodies for you (keep your eyes peeled!). I’ve also really enjoyed making new photography surfaces, as well as developing my food photography and stepping out of my comfort zone into more moody shots. I hope you like what’s to come!
Lowlights: As we all do sometimes, I felt a little lost this month, questioning where I want to head career wise in the future. Self doubt is a big inspiration killer, and I’ve definitely felt lacking in creativity. Getting sick with food poisoning and then a cold didn’t help matters either!
Things to Remember: Set and work towards achievable goals. Take each day as it comes.
Firsts: Being featured in a print magazine! Nourish magazine awarded me as an Instagrammer of Influence and I feel very humbled and thankful.
Lasts: After getting mild food poisoning, I have vowed to never eat large amounts of deep-fried food again.
Food obsession of the month: My Vegan Jam Drop Cookies, which I’ve made a handful of times and love to enjoy for afternoon tea. For breakfast I’ve been loving Overnight Chia Oats for these hot spring days we’re having, and of course my 3-Ingredient Vegan Pancakes topped with summer fruits and spoonfuls of peanut butter. Smoothie bowls have also been a winner in this humid weather (especially my Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie Bowl for when I just want chocolate for breakfast!)
Watching: House of Cards, religiously. I have only just caught on to Netflix and the first thing I did was binge watch House of Cards. If you haven’t yet seen it I highly recommend it!
Listening to: Boy & Bear’s new album has been on repeat this month.
Excited for: When Rian finishes his uni degree in a few weeks and we can spend quality time together — going out for breakfast, spending the day at the beach, having day adventures, everything!
