An investment

3rd November marks the day my car hunting days (just two!) came to an end. I bought my first car! A cute, snug Chevy which name thus far is just Sparky is officially Lil Bastard (in ode to James Dean’s). This is my first huge investment in life; after this, comes my first home away from my actual home. This is also a thanks to my dad for being patient enough to drive me around for two whole days in search for my first car. Thanks Papa!

Autumn/Winter transition

My favourite trends are ALL wintery. I love feeling snug in my clothes. I have a jacket which I call my “bed” because of how comfortable it is! I wear it almost everyday for work and barely take it off.

As of now – when the article has been published – my wardrobe and room is officially autumn/winter ready. The only short-sleeved tops I have are vests I wear underneath my clothes. My bed has fleecy covers and a cuddly duvet. My pyjamas are almost all fleecty as well.

(Can you tell how much I love fleecy, snug, wintery things?!)

Christmas time… one month too early!

Hands down, my favourite time of the year is when end of October rolls in. That’s when I REALLY invest myself into the Christmassy spirit and come out with my obsession with Christmas songs. But let me stop you there, because that’s only part of the obsession… I actually listen to holiday tunes ALL. YEAR. ROUND.

Yes you read correctly. I listen to Christmas songs 365/6 days a year. Whenever they come up, I turn the volume up and jam along. Christmas makes me happy and forget about the crud I had over the last several months.

I love Christmas not because of how damn good and catchy the songs are, but it’s that time of year where the whole family comes together (leaving Thanksgiving out as I’m not an American), gives presents to one another and shares a bottle or two (of wine that is). It’s also the time of year where I bake the most. I’ll be posting some tasty recipes you can try during the holiday season!

To sum up how next month’s #ClaireNotes will be:

#ClaireNotes – September 2017

No more Summer School *sobs*

With summer coming to an end comes the end of my summer work as a Child Support Worker (equivalent to my actual job as an LSA).  I would definitely do it again next year (it was my first year) as it was a LOT of fun. I was with little children – my forte – and they were the sweetest, cutest, most amazeball little ones! Let’s hope I see them again next year!

Driving yet?

Well, no. But I am halfway there! I passed my theory test! I was super excited when I did because, as opposed to before, I am in desperate need to drive, especially since I’m working a bit further than before (plus I owe my boyfriend for driving me around and picking me up for 18 months… he lives almost an hour away!).

 

Wedding ❤

Last Saturday I had the wedding my my GBF from my first job. I’ve known him for a few years so I remember him meeting his partner and how he knew he was The One. You can imagine how much I cried on the day 😉
