The fourth round up of a new series where I look back over the past month’s style posts and fashion tidbits and provide a snapshot of the best September had to offer! There were lots of things to be grateful for this month. I managed to check an exciting item off my wish list and nabbed a pre-loved Celine Sangle bag, which has fast made its way to the top of my favourites list. Apart from that exciting purchase, the highlight of this month was getting real with my fashion friends about how the pandemic has impacted their lives. We took a moment to pause and reflect on how our lives are going in light of all the challenges. You can read their responses here.
On the work front, my 12 month secondment in the public service officially came to an end, but given my current workload, I’ve started a fresh 12 month contract with the same agency and I’m staying on for another year which I’m very pleased about. While it was initially a bit of a culture shock, public service has been really rewarding and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
I also managed some much-needed time off this month after feeling a little burnt out having not had any time off since Christmas. It felt a little wrong to take leave considering I wasn’t going anywhere but having that time during the day to myself, without the kids and without needing to sit at my desk, was just what I needed!
It’s hard to believe how quickly September flew by but here we are at the tail end of the year. I hope you’re enjoying the changing seasons wherever you are in the world!
