Monthly Roundup: September & October 2015

WHAT HAPPENED ON THE BLOG THIS MONTH?

Ok, ok, my bad. I totally forgot to do the monthly roundup for two months running. But in my defence I’ve been seriously busy…

SEPTEMBER

September started off with a bang at the amazing Bestival on the Isle of Wight along with one of my fave travel brands, STA Travel. It was a pretty awesome experience getting the VIP treatment at STA’s on-site hostel and enjoying the delights of such a quirky festival. Catch up on my adventure in these posts:

Bestival's Summer Of Love

Next up on my September adventures was a pretty cool cycling trip along with the Catalan Tourist Board. I spent some time in Catalonia in Spain with some other kick-ass bloggers exploring everything this beautiful part of Europe had to offer. Here’s what happened:

Girona, Spain

I also reviewed a couple of travel books in September and threw in a ‘Life Lessons’ post for good measure:

OCTOBER

October was almost entirely devoted to a pretty awesome trip I took at the beginning of the month – my first ever visit to Italy, exploring Cinque Terre, Pisa, Florence and Genoa. Yeah, I went a bit mental with the Italy posts…

I also included a few product reviews in October from technology to fashion…

WHAT HAPPENED ON SOCIAL MEDIA THIS MONTH?

I’ve had a good few months on Instagram with my following really starting to pick up! Here’s my most popular ‘grams of Sept and Oct – a shot of a fisherman on the coast at Feliu De Guixols in Spain, and a selfie in front of Manarola in Cinque Terre, Italy.

WHAT HAPPENED IN MY WORLD THIS MONTH?

Getting a taste of the dream travel blogger lifestyle, of free festivals and adventures, has pretty much been my lot over the last two months! I mean I can’t really complain can I? *Praying it lasts*

Although I did have some awesome fancy dress group costumes going on at Halloween this year. I was Poison Ivy in a group of heroes and villains (although predominantly Batman), as well as Velma in the Scooby Doo gang with my BFFs! I really heart fancy dress.

CURRENT OBSESSIONS

I’m totally behind the times with my TV shows as I’ve had a pretty busy year so far, but I FINALLY got to finish season 1 of How To Get Away With Murder! Such an awesome show. I adore anything written by Shonda Rhimes basically. #GreysAnatomyFoLife

WHAT’S COMING UP NEXT MONTH?

I’m really just gearing up for Christmas now. I’m a big fan of this time of year, especially in the UK, so I’m going to be making the most of it with all kinds of Christmassy things!

I’ll also be planning my travels for 2016. Watch this space…
