Gratitude Journal: October

/ noun
the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.

It seems as though October has been a cross between online shopping/spending and reading books. My brother came down for a long weekend and we ended up going shopping which also resulted in me purchasing things. I was good on the makeup front thought, I only bought one eyeshadow. October flew by so fast and I can’t believe it’s only two months until Christmas!

Here’s what made me smile in October:

    I love that you list out each day, something that you are grateful for. I am grateful for community, family, the ability to receive an education, spending time with loved ones, my health, having a place to call home, food and most importantly God.

    I can’t believe it’s been a whole since since the Ellie Goulding concert – wow, time truly flies.
    Those dungarees looks super comfy! 🙂
    You tease with the Feel Unique peek – I’m assuming you will post about it?

      I can’t either, that concert and the whole day was so fun! The dungarees are comfy, I wore them again yesterday and one of the sales assistants in The Body Shop complimented me ☺️
      Tuesday, watch this space! 😉
