7 Things I Need To Do In October

First of all, I want to say it's crazy that this picture was taken this time 2 years ago..?!

Anyway, getting on to the point of the post, ahhh I'm so happy we're in October; it's time for crunchy leaves, movie nights, knitted jumpers and the nights getting cooler (who am I kidding, it's always cold in Wales...)
I can't actually believe we are in October though, I swear it was June and then I blinked and now here we are... Another year coming to an end, jeez. 

There is so much stuff I feel like I need to do before the end of this year it's crazy, I mean next thing I know it'll be Christmas, which is scary yet super exciting at the same time!

1) Not necessarily first in the order of things, but I need to try and finish off my Uni application this month, or at least get a good chunk of it done (which means starting my personal statement, yikes). For those of you who didn't already know, I decided to take a gap year this hear while all of my friends headed off to university; I just didn't feel ready for it myself, and I wasn't even sure what I wanted to do in Uni, so there was no way I wanted to jump into something that big half-hearted. 

2) Sorting out work experience is also kind of following on or linking in to that last one - I want to do a Primary Studies course in university, so that I can progress on to becoming a teacher. I've spoken to the primary school that I actually went to, and I should actually be sorting out my work experience with them some time this week, eeeep.

3) This next one I tell myself probably everyyyy month, but then I'll see a new MAC collection or that really nice coat I've been lusting after, or ooh, new boots..... No I'm serious, I need to save money. I have a few things coming up in the next couple of weeks that are going to be expensive, so I realllllly need to keep on top of my savings.

4) Spend more time with friends. I think sometimes you can get carried away with everyday life or studies or work or whatever else you're doing and just stop making time for the friends in your life, which I find really sad, so I definitely need to make sure I make more of an effort with my friends, just to catch up or do a bit of shopping and spend time together (dammit Sophie how will that help you save?!

5) I know this sounds quite silly but I really want to try and take some time to experiment more with my makeup. I feel like I can kind of tend to stick with the same looks on an everyday basis, which isn't a bad thing (!), but I just feel like I'd love to take my makeup to the next level; it's that time of the year where it's okay to wear a smokey eye in the middle of the day, or get out that dark vampy lipstick you've been waiting all summer to wear, or have your contour so sharp you could cut a bitch ...or at least I think so - you go girl. I just feel like I want to try new things out, I mean if they don't work, they don't work, and who cares if I'm not gonna leave my house for the entire day (not me). 

6) Getting my hair done is definitely going to be a must in the next couple of weeks (or at least in the next month) - my roots are coming through (...blonde, might I add) and my hair is generally getting to the unruly, frizzy, split end stage again, so I'd really like to sort it out; the colour if nothing else. Ugh, first world problems...

7) Last but certainly not least (although it is technically the last thing of the month) .... Halloween! I absolutely love Halloween, not only for the dressing up and parties, but for the films, pumpkin carving and autumn-y candles. I have no idea what I'm actually going to do yet for Halloween night, but hopefully I can spend it with all my friends (and I'll get to do cool makeup and wear a super cool costume)

So that was it for the things I really want to get done this month, let me know if there's anything you really need to do this month, or what you're doing/wearing for Halloween!
