So Long, September!

As you may guess, I have an endless to-do list. Because of that, I've developed a bad habit of thinking of how much I have to do and then forget to think of how much I've gotten done and how much I've managed to accomplish. I found that this rung particularly true when I took a look back at September. 

I work for a business that gets incredibly busy around the holidays, and so I had hoped to build up a pile of posts to pull out around the holidays when I'm working 10 hours of overtime every week for over a month! Well, that plan went very poorly, and I've been beating myself up about it a bit. Silly, I know!

Well, I'm really glad that I took a chance to put together this round-up and take a good look back at September. It made me take a moment to appreciate how much great stuff happened in September and to recognize all the things I did accomplish!

So, let's get to it! Here's a look back at September:
Since the weather has cooled down quite a bit, I've been LOVING pulling out some of my favorite fall recipes, like my Homemade Chai. I've also whipped up some Curry Carrot Soup, and made some much needed Maple Bacon Waffles. I sure love seasonal cooking!
After posting stripe-y outfits all summer, I managed to not post a single one in September! I did, however, wear all the prints. I wore Foxes with Plaid, more plaid, Polka Dots and Ric Rac, and a pretty, printed mustard skirt!

I also dyed my hair! A fact I keep forgetting because I'm kind of convinced that this is the color my hair was meant to be.
I did lots of fun DIY projects, too! This one for a Honeycomb Stamp has actually been the most-viewed post of all time on my blog! I also used that stamp to make some Hand-Stamped Wrapping Paper, shared a tutorial on how to turn your collection of clip-on earrings into pretty Pendant Necklaces, and was asked by BuzzFeed (!!!) to create a DIY for some pretty Decorated Clothes Hangers.
On top of all that, I celebrated my 100th post, guest posted on Elana's lovely blog, Room 334, and put together a fun post in partnership with Hallmark UK & Ireland to help inspire you to throw a Cocktail Party!

Upon looking back, I'm almost sad to say, "So long, September!" But! October is going to be (and already has been) awesome! I've got lots of fun projects, recipes, and outfits in store that I'm looking forward to sharing with you guys.

And hey! If you want to learn a bit more about yours truly, be sure to stop by Kristina's awesome blog, The Eccentric Owl, to read her interview with me!

I hope you guys have a lovely weekend!

Til next time!

  1. It is SO important to remember what you have accomplished! I try to remind myself of this every day, even when my to-do list only has one thing checked off. Celebrate the little things right? And you've clearly accomplished a lot! :D

    1. Aw, thanks, Marlene! I'm hoping I can get better about reminding myself to do so. The traps of being a perfectionist can be rough sometimes!
