Autumn Goals

Stromness

I think I might give up on the monthly catch-ups entirely. Ever since I went back to work after the summer break, which was back in August mind you,  I barely noticed the seasonal transition. I have been totally consumed by my day job and have done zero to indulge in anything else. That sadly includes blogging. I did however stop feeling guilty about it. 
It's crazy to think we're already in October. I'm currently in Orkney recharging my batteries and making plans. I was planning on going for my usual walk around the island but we seemed to have been hit by a hurricane. Hence, the weather's not ideal.

BUY A WINTER COAT
I'm thinking teddy texture and designed for low temperatures. What are you favourites and where do you shop for them?

BOOK A FACIAL
I've been meaning to book one back in summer as I feel like my skin needs an extra care and my usual routines aren't enough these days.

BOOK A WEEKEND AWAY
I'm thinking Glencoe ... or a lodge closer to where I live, preferably east coast. I've always wanted to do this yet never had enough time. Or money.

BUY A COFFEE MACHINE
That was my goal last summer. I wanted a first day back to work with a proper espresso shot + milk. I still haven't decided which one to buy. Anyone? Good quality and affordable would be grand.

TAKE BETTER PHOTOS
I have been considering buying a camera for years now. I have my favourites but money has always been an issue. However, it's something I really want to invest in as my smart phone camera can be limited and I'm rarely happy with the outcome. Which ones would you recommend?

THINK CHRISTMAS
Nothing too crazy yet since I'm not sure where I would be this year. But, I'm already in the process of making a mental list including when do I dig out the tree from the shed, what I'm buying for my loved ones, what I'm wearing for a work night out and what I want for Christmas.

Let me know what you think!
