Well that was another month gone. As with most other months, it went by in what felt like a blurry dream of quickness. Saying that, this funny realisation that August has come to an end has made me super happy that we are getting one step closer to Autumn, warm comfy clothes, the annual trip to Center Parcs and Christmas.
So…..with all this longing for Autumn and winter, let’s go through all the things I have loved during the last days of Summer:
In The Kitchen:
This month I have been trying to limit my time in the kitchen in a bid to spend more time with The Boy. This has meant coming up wth quick creative ways to make lunch and dinner. In coming up with these recipes, I have discovered my new best friend…..Smoked Paprika:
This stuff is amazing! I have mainly been using this on roasted chickpeas and cauliflower. Super tasty cold for lunch, or straight out of the oven as part of a yummy dinner.
In The Bathroom:
In my bid for better wellness, relaxing more and hoping to ease my back and neck problems, I have been spending a lot more time in the bathtub…..I have been known to stay in there for more than 3 hours, and to be 100% honest….I don’t care!! It’s amazing and I encourage you all to give it a bash. Anyway, in these baths I have been making my way through every bath bomb that Lush make.
My most recent favourite of these is Yoga Bomb. It gives a beautiful colourful bubble show in your bath once it is dropped in, as well as providing you with soft skin, a soothing smell and great muscle relaxing properties.
WARNING: This bomb has glitter in it, so please remember to rinse down the tub once you are done.
In The Bedroom:
As I have mentioned before, The Boy and I are currently in the process of buying our house. With this comes many many sort outs, and even more trips to the tip. From our mass declutter, I have cleared out a tone of space in my dressing table so I can not reorganise my Makeup stash….woohoo!!
This temporary setup is proving to be amazing, as everything is in its own draw and all grouped together…..so much OCD happiness!!
I will be doing a Makeup organisation tour once I have proper dividers in place, as at the moment I am using old Glossy Box lids.
In The Living Room (A.K.A: The House of Lotz Spa and Retreat):
This month the Spa and Retreat has been replaced by a mini office where I have spent most of my time sorting out paperwork and finding new homes for everything. In my super organised brain, I thought it was a great idea to get a label maker to make things easier to find, and to keep us on track.
This little Amazon bargain has proved super helpful and super annoying at the same time…..everything in our house now has a label!!
In The Portable House of Lotz (A.K.A: In My Handbag):
I have been living out of my handbag and my diary this month, so it is no shock that my handbag favourite is stationary related……In the continued bid to stay organised and on top of everything I have been relying on this beautiful pen clip.
I picked this up in Hay whilst on a stationary binge, and it has proved to be a great investment. I must admit, i have lost it in my bag a few times, so I have now clipped it to my diary……no more scary moments for me!!
Well…that was August everyone. I hope you have enjoyed the little glimpse into my month. Next month should bring the fun Autumn stuff that I have been waiting for…woohoo!!
Have a great weekend everyone xXx
