Things I Loved in September..

October is fast approaching and although i'm excited for the crisp autumnal winds and the cliche Pumpkin Spice Latte, September has always been one of my favourite months. Mostly because it's my birthday month (Go Virgos!) and also because it has always felt like a month of change. With that said, here are a few things that made my September that little bit more awesome..

I'm in the process of re-branding my entire blog, and i'm doing it partly by hand and partly with the help of Pipdig who designed the layout you see on my blog as of present. I've been heavily influenced by watercolours and soft browns and pinks and i've found the best way to do somenthing sometimes is to do it yourself! My blog is a very personal project and i thought i should inject a little bit more of my personality into it so i've been painting my little heart out and preparing everything from headers to custom borders for the new layout and one thing that i've loved is this little Winsor & Newton Watercolour set that I bought from Cass Art a little while back. It's portable so I can take my painting with me wherever I go and It means I have the freedom to work from almost anywhere.

Zara have been absolutely killing it with their A/W stuff but their perfume is incredible too! Granted they don't have the staying power of my usual Flowerbomb, but for the price, they're a huge bargain! Speaking of bargains, I've been revisiting an old love of mine, Charity shops. Since re-doing my bedroom, my space has been feeling a bit bare and far too minimal for my liking so i've been picking up little bits and bobs to make the place a little more 'me'. I found this antique tray for a mere £2.99 in my local shop.

September is my favourite because as i mentioned before, it's my birthday month, which means PRESENTS! I received a very lovely present from Gaelle and Gemma of Wifty. They very kindly packaged up and sent me one of their Wifty Boxes which are monthly subscription boxes featuring the cutest and quirkiest products from independent designers. I received two very sweet hairclips and a pair of earrings in mine which I actually wore to work the same day. Check out their website and if anything catches you eye i have a nifty (hehe it rhymes with wifty!) discount code for you! Just enter sundaybest10 at the checkout for 10% off :)

Another favourite this month have been my new Chelsea boots from OFFICE. They are absolutely beautiful (pricey! but beautiful). I've been needing a nice pair of black boots for Autumn and these fit the bill perfectly. I've been wearing them very carefully so as not to mess up the suede but i love how it goes with boots and dresses, definitely something for the Investment Wardrobe Project.

What did you love this month? Leave me a link to any of your favourites posts! And a very happy October to you all!
