It honestly feels like minutes ago we were gearing up for October, and now November is here and I’m already thinking about Christmas jumpers! The clocks have gone back, the heating is always on, and hot chocolate is a staple part of my daily diet – not that I’m complaining because yummmmmm!

To kick off a new month and the run up to December, I thought I’d bring back some monthly themed goodness and share some things I’d like to do and achieve during November…

1. Edinburgh

Starting at the end of the month, I’m heading to Edinburgh (and Scotland) for the first time during the last week of November for the Christmas market and some exploring – I’ve been wanting to go all year and with the festive season kicking off early there, there’s nothing better than exploring the markets and seeing the lights with my own eyes! If you have any recommendations (especially vegan food) let me know!

2. Getting ahead with work
I’ve got all my content planned until the end of the month, but due to a fever I fell behind and I’m trying to get back on track again. Combined with photography work with clients, I have to squeeze in my own work when I can so hopefully with a few free days coming up I’ll be ahead and whipping up posts left, right, and centre!

3. Purchase 50% of Christmas presents
Maybe it’s being a bit eager beaverish but I’d love to get a few key presents sorted before the rush of December – I’ve already got some amazing wrapping paper from Homesense, I just need to nail down my friends and fam to ask what they want!

4. Book a trip for the end of the year
It’s my mum’s birthday just before New Years and we’d love to go away somewhere warm to celebrate – not too far away but enough to feel 20ºc at least, does anyone have any recommendations?

What are your goals for the rest of the month? Let me know below…..
