Things I Have Loved In September

September has been a super busy month, filled with lots of new experiences and people. Here are a few of my favourites:

Look how beautiful my new walk to work is. I'm just waiting for the weather to cool down a bit more, but I wore a turtleneck for the first time in months the other day and felt so happy. Bring on hot chocolate, fluffy dressing gowns and new winter coats.

I'm currently rewatching Gossip Girl and I am realising how much I love it. Sometimes, if I am up super early, I can fit in two episodes before I have to leave for work.

On that note, I have moved house for my new job so I can leave the house at 8.30, walk to work and make it for 9am. I also love having a proper evening, and if I don't take a long lunch break, I can be home by 5.30 which works perfectly for the rest of my housemate's routines.

I absolutely love my house share - thank you Spare Room! It is really nice to have people to hang out with when you want, but we all respect each other's privacy so if you want some time alone, you can have that too. We all make the effort to sit down together and eat cake whilst watching Bake Off.

I have been wearing my new cord dungaree dress from Primark a lot - I usually wear it with a patterned shirt or blouse and feel it is smart enough to wear to work. I can't wait to wear it with my chelsea boots and comfy jumpers too.

- Colder weather
- My 23rd Birthday.
- Meeting up with old work collegues
- Exploring more of my new town

Rented Room Wishlist

I have just moved out of my mum's house (check out this post!) and into to a new room in a rented house share - think University living, but with adults, and let's say, the room isn't exactly to my liking and a little miss matched as most rented places are. As it looks like I'll be living here for the foreseeable future, I have been scouring the internet for some new homeware and to make my room a little bit more cosy, especially as the nights are drawing in.

The Graduate Diaries - So I Moved In With 5 Strangers

This week has been challenging to say the least. I left my job last Thursday (a job which I absolutely loved and all the people in it) after finishing a fixed term contract, and moved an hour away on the Sunday. Oh, and then I started my new job the Monday morning. Let's just say, it's been busy.

But, this week has actually been pretty good. Moving for work means that I am now walking to work and saving a lot of money on petrol and train fare, plus the extra exercise is much welcomed. I was worried about moving in with people I didn't know, and getting a room from Spare Room, but it has turned out great. The whole house is really nice, it isn't too messy or noisy. It's pretty much student living but with adults, which is quite nice.

My room is pretty big too, although I did wake up to a slug trail the other day. I now have lovely white salt lines around the edge of my room that look like I'm scaring away vampires until I figure out what to do about it. But, it could be a lot worse!

The job is also going okay. The first week is always a little weird, but I'm looking forward to getting more stuck in. It is a new role, so it is going to take a while for myself, and the team to get used to there being an extra person around but everyone is nice which is a bonus.

I have come home for the weekend just for a bit of familiarity, but next weekend I probably won't. I want to take myself out for lunch or coffee, do a bit of shopping and generally explore. Here's to the next 6 months at least whilst I am figuring out what I want to do with my life.
