So Long, September

Okay, so September ended a while ago. I meant to write this post on the last day of September, but things got in the way. I had a last-minute interview, and a couple of rough days and I needed a little bit of time to focus on other things. And that got me thinking; obviously blogs by their nature only show selected aspects of people’s lives. I mean, no one wants to read about my slow night in when there was nothing on the telly and the biscuit cupboard was running low. But do we edit out too much of the bad stuff? Should bloggers, as far as they do talk about their lives, talk about the good as well as the bad? Let me know what you think!

Without further ado, here is my round-up of September on Jessthetics! I’ve been busy.

September’s been a month of learning new skills for me. I made a paisley shirt for James, a paisley kimono for myself, and I signed up to the Autumn Stitching Club to learn to embroider! (Here’s Autumn Stitching Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4.)

I also shared a lot of outfits from my week in Paris! Gosh, that seems like a long time ago now… Here’s Day 1, Day 2, Day 4, Day 5 and Day 6.

I even squeezed in some non Paris related outfit posts! I went exploring in a meadow, wore purple and pastels in my garden and showed you my new favourite jeans 🙂

I also started making my room nice by making a vase out of a log, and I shared the DIY here.

I posted a carrot cake recipe, and most recently, I shared with you four of my favourite handmade bloggers!

Phew, it’s fun to be able to look over what I’ve done. At the beginning of September, I set myself four goals. I have sorted and bagged all my things, started some big projects and improved my lifestyle a little (I’ve been having granola and berries for breakfast, and only one cake a day – much improved!) I haven’t yet got a job or an internship but I’m working on it. Three goals out of four ticked off, not bad right?

  1. Hmmm that’s interesting about bloggers – I agree daily life gets edited. I actually try really hard to show my life as it really is my featuring rehearsals, meetings, posts about what it’s like being freelance, being on tour, being on stage etc (quite often I try to somehow coerce these into outfit posts so people aren’t just incredibly bored!) but there are things I edit out by necessity – details of my students, where I teach, details of my friends and their lives and that kind of thing. So I guess it is still quite a highly edited version of me that reaches my blog. Although I do try and present the tedious aspects of my life alongside the more interesting bits! XXX
