Well we’re getting back round to that time of year again when the weather becomes a little unpredictable and it’s not always wise to step out the house without at least a cardigan or jumper on hand for when those clouds cover the sky and the temperature drops a bit.
If you’re anything like me then the change in seasons is exciting, due to the new fashions that will be available for Autumn/Winter, but also dreaded because my body can change so much in a few months (this time its gotten bigger thanks to my love affair with the local takeaway I have invested in this summer! I just can’t be bothered to cook when it’s warm and I’ve been at work all day) so I am now spending my wages (before I have even received them!) and I’m looking to invest my money in something to keep me warm.
As a general rule I don’t like to shop cheap, not for my essential items anyway. I’ll happily go to Primark for some strappy tops, vest or t-shirts to bulk out my wardrobe but I like to spend a little more on my staple items (not too much though. I’m not made of money!) so I know that I’m going to have something good quality that lasts, so here are a few things I have my eye on to keep me going through the coming colder months.

Hi, I’m Laura.
This is probably the 50 millionth time I have reassessed my decision to start a blog. I have designed and re designed and tried to theme and create a blog that is so spectacular and interesting that I eventually lost sight of what I was trying to achieve. I wanted to start something for me. A place I could showcase all my hobbies, obsessions, interests and ideas and share them other like minded people but I got so involved with making it likable so people would read it that I was overwhelmed by it and so, stopped blogging.
But I had a wake up call this year. I spend so much of my time working in a job that doesn’t make me happy and I have been doing a degree that hasn’t been much fun at all and has had me in a state of distress every month when an assignment is due in and when I took a step back I though ‘Why?’ Why am I doing things that don’t make me happy? As I’m sure most of you will agree, life goes by too fast (I saw a post of Facebook the other week saying ‘Only 19 Fridays till Christmas! Christmas! That’s another year nearly over in the blink of an eye) and I realised I haven’t really done much that has made me happy this year so I decided to stop worrying about assignments and work and pour all my energy into doing something that makes me happy. Like Blogging!
I love to write and when it’s about things I’m passionate about it’s even better. So I’m picking this back up. A fresh layout, a fresh start and this time it’s for me. I’m not going to lie, if there are others reading this blog, it’s probably going to be all over the place. I’m naturally indecisive and I go through phases where I want to be the next Carrie Bradshaw one week then a tree hugging hippie the next. I’m not a consistent person at all but I hope, if anyone but me is reading this, that you enjoy my writing and enjoy the things I’m talking about.
