10 Things I Have Been Enjoying Lately

After seeing similar posts floating around like this one from From Roses, I thought I would sit down a write a long list of things I've been loving lately. From food to daily blogging, I'm going to share with you my top things that are currently putting a smile on my face. 

Autumn | I know that we've only just got in to August, but I have been looking forward to Autumn for several weeks now. The cosy evenings, loungewear and cold walks in the country are all a few things I have been looking forward to. My love for Autumn probably comes from the excitement of my birthday, as well as having other exciting activities planned.

Harry Potter | I have been watching the Harry Potter Films on repeat for that last couple of weeks and I have even started to re-read the books too. We're off to the Harry Potter tour in  October and I'm looking forward to drinking an ice cold butterbeer and picking up a few gift shop bits. 

Reading | I've been a serious bookworm these past few months, making my way through a handful of books every few weeks. The Night Circus was a hard book to get into, but after sticking at it I was very emotionally involved in the magic and the circus. I'm currently in the midst of reading After Anna, a story about a girl who goes missing, but then is suddenly returned. I've been enjoying curling up under a pile of blankets, switching the television off and just concentrating on the pages in front of me for a couple of hours. 

Stripes | It'll come as no surprise how much I love having stripes in my wardrobe, in fact I try and incorporate them into my outfits as much as I can. This Topshop Off The Shoulder Top has been my go-to date night pick. I have also been glued to my ASOS Stripe Culottes as they are super comfy, but can be dressed up with ease. 

Flat Doughnut Peaches | I've been trying to get myself into the habit of eating a little bit healthier in time for the Autumn and Winter months. I've been eating a lot more stir fry with a range of veg mixed in, but it's the flat doughnut peaches that I have after which have really tickled my fancy. They're sweet, juicy and less messy than other fruits - Perfect for on the go or if you want a sweet treat one evening. 
Friday Night Dinner | I've only recently discovered the newest series of Friday Night Dinner and I have been smitten, re-watching all of the episodes whilst I work. This feel good, funny programme always puts me in the best of moods and makes me belly laugh again and again. 

Macbook Air | If you follow me on Twitter I'm sure you'll be well aware of laptop-gate whereby my old lenovo gave up on me, deleting all of my work from the last few years with it. After deliberating over what I was going to do next, I decided to take the plunge and purchase a Macbook Air. It's faster, lightweight and much more helpful in terms of my work than I could ever have imagined. 

High Street Makeup | It wasn't long ago that I felt that I had fallen out of love with makeup, but, with a few new high street releases, that was soon rectified. I have been loving the Sleek Solstice Palette to add glow to my complexion and the Tanya Burr Birthday Suit Palette to create an easy, smokey eye. 

Loungewear | From cosy knits to thick woolly leggings, I have been lusting after a range of loungewear ready for the colder months. These ASOS Slouch Socks have been calling my name, so I think I'm going to have to pick up a few pairs. I have also been eying up this Topshop Rainbow Print Pyjama and these ASOS Lounge Jersey Jogger which can be bought as a duo with the ASOS Lounge Off Shoulder Top; they look like they will keep me warm throughout the Winter. 

Daily Blogging | At the start of August I decided to try my hand at daily blogging and over a week in, I can safely say it's been a success. It's been hard work, but I never seem to run out of ideas, in fact I've been inundated with them. The idea of daily blogging came from me wanting to incorporate a wide variety of posts into my blog and maybe even opting to go full time in the near future. We will just have to see! 

What have you been enjoying lately?
