Life Adventures: September '16 Recap & Favourites

13:33

I'm  not even going to comment on how this month went like a blur.


September used to be one of my favourite months. The feeling of going back to school to see friends and so on. I'm just here wishing and praying for the year to end.

 On to other things (because I already broke down this topic in my previous end of summer days post),I decided to do a "monthly favourites" post format this time to switch things up. I will still be using the "taking stock" format too.

September felt like a frantic repeat of August to be honest. At some point, I was basically just going through the motions and trying to keep up with everything around me. But I did enjoy some parts. Without further ado, here are my September faves:

-Favourite Fashion item: These shoessss.


 Found them at Ojuelegba market for 1,500 naira. I was hoping to get a lower deal but with the present state of our economy, ha ha. Bloody unlikely.

-Favourite App: I have two actually.

1. Pics Art! Special thanks to Mide Coker and Seyi Adenowo for insisting it's and epic app. My best feature apart from the fun artistic effects, is the cool filters. I've been using the filters a lot on my Instagram and I'm loving the effects. My fave filters are Dodger and Vibrant. I would love Seafoam too but it's not really part of my Instagram theme (tips on theming your Instagram page right this way). You can check out my Instagram here, I share more about myself on it than any other platform.

2. Teach Me Anatomy: Not blog related I know but I'd recommend this app for every medical student reading this. It helps simplify anatomy. A lot. I'm a physiotherapist in training just in case you were wondering.

-Favourite Food: Rice and beans + Stew. I ate this in September way too many times.

-Favourite Smell: Popcorn? Popcorn!!! To be honest, I think popcorn smells way better than it tastes.

-Favourite Event: I attended only one to be fair but the CAG bloggers forum totally rocked! I wanted to do a review but ended up not doing one so here Lydia's version here.


Also, guess who finally cut her hair? I got tired of managing two different hair textures and my scissors went "chop chop"! Granted, it was 4 months earlier than I planned but you know, spontaneity and all that jazz. It's longer than it looks though.

-Favourite place: Does my room count? It's I get to chill and read books so yea. I think it does.

-Favourite Instagram page: Nope. I'm only slightly obsessed with Instagram. My favourite page was @foodydiy. Oh so yummy recipes. And simple too!


-Favourite Music: I'm just gonna drop her name because I love all her songs. Bic Runga. I found her through a movie, My Wedding and Other Secrets.

-Favourite Blog post: 10 brilliant examples of ways to start your blog post. Content creation is not as easy as it may seem. I googled this up one time I was stuck on an intro to a post and I've referred to it a lot since then.

-Favourite feeling: The feeling I get when I imagine how I'll feel when my exams are over. I kid you not.

And that's it people!

I'm not particularly looking forward to October because of my exams. At this point, mid November is bae because by then, it'll all be over.

Do you like this format? What were your September favourites? Leave a comment, I'd love to hear from you.

    From the looks of things, your September was a good one. I also agree that it went by so quickly! I actually think October is going to be even faster.

    1. Can't we all. Didn't know the people whining about exams were not exaggerating until I entered the university. Oh well.

Nobody looks forward to exams mehn and yes I can remember those days of looking forward to September cause it's a new session month. Have a pleasant October.

    1. Thank you so much and you're welcome. 1500 was pretty good but I'd hoped to get a cheaper price so I could get more shoes. *sniffs*

  8. This is a cool format. I don't use the taking stock format because I believe I don't do much so what's the point in taking stock. But I created my own format of transforming the month's experiences into life lessons. Don't know if that makes me weird. Anyways I love your header, did you also make it with Pics Art?

    1. That's a pretty good idea and one I actually planned on implementing this month.

      I used Paint.net. I'll be doing a post on how to design graphics using this application soon.
