I’ve decided that these posts, to keep them personal to me, are not going to be full of posts specifically posted during the months that I’m talking about. Instead, they’re going to be full of posts that I’ve discovered for the first time during said month. I tweeted saying how much I like scheduled tweets for this very reason – I’m not on Twitter 24/7 (despite what it may seem like) so more often than not I miss the majority of posts that everyone puts up. I love when I’m having a scroll and I see some promoted posts because it keeps me up to date with a lot of content. I feel like without scheduled tweets, your content gets a little bit lost. To me, anyway. (Please nobody take offense to that, don’t schedule tweets if you hate them, I just really like them and see the benefits.)
First up we have my good ol’ pal Linda. I’ve been loving her content a lot recently, she is pulling it out the bag and killing it more with every new post. I came across her first bullet journal post at the start of September, and it inspired me so much that I decided to start my own. Thankfully she linked the journal she bought and I bought one for myself and for my boyfriend so we could start bullet journal-ing. Linda actually made it sound like a fun activity, and made me feel like I could do it, as opposed to making it sound difficult and like something that would be too creative and technical for me. I’m going to be doing a full post on the inside of my bullet journal so I won’t go into too much detail here, but I’m obsessed with my journal now and keep opening it to stare at the pages.
Dorkface is a name that everyone knows – Jemma’s bright hair and even brighter personality make her really popular in the blogosphere, which is also helped by her ability to bring positivity and kindness to everything. I’m fully in love with her prints on Etsy, most of which I need to buy when I next get paid, and the post I’ve chosen from her for this post is Starting a Daily Journal. Along the same lines as Linda, Jemma made having a journal sound like so much fun. I’m heavily influenced by other people so after reading that post I bought a journal to start keeping daily logs and just being creative with. I know what you’re thinking, isn’t that a bullet journal??? Well, no. Because here I can write out my thoughts, things that are bothering me, things to remember, and I don’t feel that same need to be extremely neat and meticulous. Thanks to these two girls and their posts, I have both ends of the creative spectrum – neat, well thought out and organised, and messy, full thoughts.
I’ve become a little bit obsessed with plants this month. It all started with my lone succulent that I bought a few months ago, but then I was sent a cactus by the lovely people at Botanics, and then I was sent a rose plant which I ended up killing via neglect, and now I can’t go anywhere without admiring the cacti. Lily did a post about creating your own indoor cacti garden, which features beautiful photography and hypnosis to make you go and buy more plants. I don’t think I can quite manage a whole garden, I don’t have enough room but she lays out the steps so simply that I’d probably actually find it quite easy to do. Thankfully cacti are relatively hard to kill so I think I’m safe there.
One post that I keep going back to this month is by LexiLife and it’s about how to be in front of the camera as opposed to behind it. Her tips are so useful and each time I read the post I feel so inspired to start experimenting a lot more with my photos. Her photography is gorgeous, as you can tell by her Instagram feed, and I love that this post is a little insight into how she works her photography magic. It’s good to experiment with photography from time-to-time, I’ve not quite reached the stage where I’m experimenting with myself in my photos but it’s something I’d like to work on, so I’m very thankful that I stumbled across this post.
I don’t actually think any of these were posted in September and I really wish I cared, but I just want to share some of my favourite content with you all.
