Life in October

IMG_1888.jpg

Hello. It is nearly the end of the month somehow. Frankly I am quite happy with that, the closer the Christmas the better and the sooner Halloween is over … the better too. (Sorry, I’m not too fond)
October was an okay month. I had two weeks off work somewhere in between and consequently a lot of time to think and plan for this space. I am thinking lots of things at the moment. But more about that later.

Right so today is 3 November and you are right this post didn’t get published in time. I’m always taking forever with these monthly round-ups but it’s still something I love to do and I always enjoy reading others’. So here we go. (Brb, need another cuppa)

WHAT’S NEW

Earlier in October I went to Edinburgh for two day and I will be coming back later this month. Right now I am searching for guides and best places to go to. Please leave a comment with your suggestion. Is the cat cafe worth it? Cause I almost went there last time but ran out of time in the end. I’ve done the Castle (of course) and the Royal Botanic Garden. Oh I have entered their photography competition so that should be exciting.
What else, I am desperately trying to get back to my old gym routine but it’s not easy. I did try a new class (full body workout) and loved it. I just need to make more effort to convince myself it’s good for me.

TV + FILM

Here we go, my favourite category. As you know, I am obsessed with films and recently TV shows too. This month though I haven’t seen that many so hopefully this will change this month. I did however manage to finally see Hereditary and I still can’t make up my mind how I feel about it. On one hand you have this utterly terrifying tale with brilliant performances. And yet for some reason something doesn’t seem to be working for me. The more I think about it the more it appears to be due to a combination of the uneven pacing, the unnecessary plot exposition and generally choosing shock over genuine scares especially in the second part of the movie.
As far as TV show go I finished watching the Netflix’s original The Haunting of Hill House and loved it even though it left me feeling unsettled for days after the credits. I also am head over heels with the new season of American Horror Story. Apocalypse is ticking all the boxes for me. It definitely is up there with Hotel and Asylum.

BLOGS + RESOURCES

I really enjoy reading blogs like Daisybutter, Little Henry Lee, Like Neon Love. I seem to be mentioning these regularly but I genuinely find their content inspiring which encourages me to keep going with mine. Hence I have looked closely at blogging resources and coaching. Because let’s be honest. I’m in a serious need of direction. There is a lot to choose from. I honestly think Blog & Beyond is full of all the good stuff. I’m still trying to find time to have a proper look and start at the beginning. Also Vix has come up with lots of helpful tools that I am looking at right now.
