Happy first of November! Hasn’t this just been the quickest year?! Or do I say that every year?
Anyway, today marks the first day of Christmas so if you don’t mind, things are about to get festive around here. I’m kind of joking but I’ll probably be listening to Christmas songs exclusively for the next eight weeks…
November is set to be a very, very good month so allow me to fill you in…
01. I just had a look at my calendar for the coming weeks and it’s making me slip in to a deep sleep just thinking about it! I’m about to be EXHAUSTED… but I’m also very excited at what’s to come.
I have trips away, trips to London, the Scottish BAFTAs, breakfast meetings, fancy dinners and even a sneaky West Elm delivery in there too.
We’re also going to see Brand New (oh the memories *self-combusts*) and The Killers!! Our second time this year seeing them, I just cannot wait to see Brandon again… swoon.
02. It’s time for a YouTube relaunch! I’ve been feeling so meh about my channel lately, never really knowing if I should make time for it or keep it for weekly vlogs or even just scrap it altogether since I consider myself more of a blogger anyway.
It’s tricky because I feel like you can’t just make little ‘sit down’ videos anymore, it’s all so high production-Spielberg-directed stuff these days – where do I fit in with my silly vlogs and quick videos?
I came to the conclusion that I do love making and uploading videos, but I needed to take the pressure off. From now on I’m still going to blog three/four times per week, but also upload a once-weekly video on Sundays, so far it’s going well – here’s hoping I find the time to commit to polished, fun videos from here on out!
03. And with a YouTube relaunch (which is still in the works, more changes coming your way!), comes a blog relaunch! I’ve been working with my brilliant team at Hello Hello Studio to bring some serious changes to this little site. I AM BEYOND EXCITED. I detest my current design so it’s going to be awesome to be able to look at my blog and love what I see.
I’m also hoping to do a monthly newsletter again, I love seeing these from everyone else so it made sense to get creating my own. These monthly goals posts are some of my most popular, so I reckon it’ll be a beefier version of this, with a few added extras! I’ll include the sign-up details as soon as I can.
I really cannot wait to see it all come together, it’s honestly been in the works since earlier this year! Here’s hoping you all love it as much as we do.
04. Something else very exciting is going down this month, I don’t want to reveal too much just yet but just know I’ve been working on something super fun and interiors related! It’s been quite stressful, but we’re making progress and I can’t wait to reveal more soon!
Make sure you keep an eye out over on my Instagram Stories because I may post a few sneaky updates over there…
So that’s November! I’ve also been married five months today, how crazy is that?! Feels like only yesterday…
Anyway, what’s new with you guys this month?
