Five Things I Did In March


I'm very much enjoying writing these little monthly round up posts - it's easy to feel like a month has flown by without me having achieved anything so it's nice to force myself to evaluate the month and realise that, actually, I have done and achieved things beyond (just about) getting myself out of bed each morning. Let me know your March achievements in the comments, but for now, here's what I got up to:


Learnt how to do my job better | At the beginning of the month I went away on a week long course for work where I was taught a lot of the theory behind what we actually do - it's alright knowing how to operate things and which buttons to press, but it's an added bonus knowing why we do that and how everything works. (If you don't know, I work in TV Operations by the way.) Some of it blew my mind and went completely over my head I'll be honest (coding and multiplexing anyone?), but it was nice to feel that I was gaining knowledge that will hopefully stand me in good stead for the future!

Made some exciting plans for the coming months | Each month I spend a day doing something nice with my mum, but in the past we've got rather lax at planning anything in advance. This month we've actually thought ahead and planned a theatre trip for April then a spa day for May. It's so nice to have some set plans in my diary to do lovely things especially as I imagine I’ll need that spa day in May to chill me out before the wedding (seriously, remember when I was the most laid back bride ever? Somewhere along the way I appear to have lost my cool...)

Had a little blogger trip away | Having both decided that we want to explore more of the UK, Ashton and I went to Haworth in West Yorkshire at the weekend for a lil' groupon break. We stayed in a gorgeous hotel that made us feel like proper bloggers simply because there was a copper bath in our room, we wandered the cobbled streets of Haworth, peering through the windows of the cute old fashioned shops and we walked up multiple steep hills all for the sake of fish and chips. More short UK breaks are the way forward this year I think because it was bloomin' lovely.

Upped my home photography | A v. exciting collab with Amara this month meant that I really pushed myself in terms of my interior photography. I thought out of the box a bit more and absolutely loved creating the content for them and my blog. I'm very self-critical so I definitely see a lot of room for improvement, but I see improvement there compared to the past for sure. I'm trying to get better at recognising how far I've come and looking at the bigger picture, rather than just constantly feeling like I need to improve.

Our new sofa arrived | Very boring adult alert, but we've been waiting since January for our sofa to be made/delivered and it finally came last week. It's given us the push we needed to crack on with finishing off little details in the living room (and actually think about furnishing the rest of it) so hopefully at some point in the next few months I'll have a transformation post...

What have you been up to this month?

  3. Love how you felt like a proper blogger because of the copper bathtub - I would definitely have the same reaction! I too would like to go on more UK breaks this year. Also, it's great that you pushed yourself in regards to your photography, that is something I really want to start doing.

    Happy Easter! I hope you are having a lovely Easter weekend :) We are really enjoying the long weekend, it was nice enough to go to the beach earlier.

  11. I also feel like the months are just flying by the moment, I mean where did April come from?! Sometimes it is difficult to look back and place exactly when you did certain things so I think I need to start writing monthly roundup posts as well, even if they're just for my own posterity! March sounds like it was very kind to you, making exciting plans for upcoming months is only a good thing, I hope you enjoy yourself at your spa day! Your interior photography certainly has been impressive, I always look forward to seeing what you post next on Insta!
