I really love reading list posts so this week I decided to have a crack at one of my own. I’m 24, so I’m well aware that I’m not considered ‘old’ but the other day while chatting with a group of friends in WhatsApp, we realised how much of the stuff we do doesn’t actually reflect our supposedly ‘young and carefree age’ and that we were all basically a bunch of Nanas. Which is great cause y’know, Nanas are awesome. And so came about this weeks post. Enjoy and please be sure to add your own in the comments!

Now I’ve been doing it for a couple of years, I find it a lot easier to tell people I’m a blogger. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t run around shouting about it or anything. But if it just so happens to come up naturally, then I’m happy to talk about it. One of the most common questions I get during these conversations is: “so do you hope to do it full time?”

It’s safe to say that Summer is over. But you know what, that’s ok! Autumn brings a lot to get excited about. The darker evening may make blog photography hell but let’s not talk about that part eh? Instead let’s focus on the good bits – like coming home straight from work to climb into pjs, snuggling into fluffy blankets with a hot drink and watching all the great TV shows that only seem to come about at Autumn. Oh but don’t forget the candles! A flickering candle adds the finishing touch to your cosy evening, especially when it smells amazing too! So you can see why I got very excited when Yankee Candle sent me their brand new Fall in Love* range. I’m a bit of a Yankee Candle fangirl, even dedicating an entire drawer to them – sorry Matt – so I was excited to see what they had in store this year. I actually reviewed last years range which you can read here.

I’ve lived in the same city, Peterborough, all my life. There’s certainly no plan for me to leave soon so, for now, I’m enjoying the influx of new shops and restaurants setting up home here, one of which includes Middletons Steakhouse & Grill. It’s the 7th branch in the country to open and one of the biggest yet, seating 180 people across two floors. Matt and I were thrilled to receive an invite on their very first preview night ahead of the official opening on the 8th of September.

Well hello there September! There was a time when bloggers used to do ‘favourite’ posts monthly, myself included. While I haven’t done one in the some time, this month there were too many lovely things that I wanted to talk about to not do one. August, much like the majority of other months, has absolutely flown by. Living in the UK, it has only very briefly actually felt like Summer but nonetheless, it’s been a good month. I’ve decided to do things a little differently, take a look after the jump…
