The September Post

August included moving back to Dundee and settling into my new flat, working my uni's open day and getting to tell a whole bunch of worried applicants and parents about my amazing course, and soaking up lots of family time before I and everyone else get back into the swing of non-holiday life. And as cliche as it sounds, I can't believe it's September already! I'm actually looking forward to having a proper schedule again, but wow did summer go by quickly. Here's what I've got coming up this month...

Uni >> Like I mentioned, I start back at uni on the 11th. I've already bought my books, a stationary trip is happening any time soon, and I'm actually looking forward to getting back to normality. The open day I worked made me really excited to get back to studying - there's nothing like talking about your degree for six hours that makes you realise how much you miss it!

Magazine >> With uni, comes the Magdalen. We've already started working on new issues (the Freshers is due back from print in a few days and the October issue is almost submitted!) but it'll be fun to get back into regular meetings and brainstorming with people face-to-face rather than over Facebook or email! This will be my final year as Fashion Editor so I want to make it as amazing as I can, which means hitting the floor running.

Colour >> If you take a look at my blog or Instagram you can see how I've loved wearing colour this summer. I feel like over the past year I've gradually included more and more colour into my wardrobe, but over the past couple months my outfits have been predominantly bright. Now that it's September and therefore autumn is coming, I'm really going to try and resist the all black and grey that I normally go for in dreary months. Here's hoping I keep all that pink, yellow and red around!

Skin >> I've talked about how my skin had a major freak out a few months ago, and I can happily update you all that it's actually getting better. I've not got pristine skin, but I only get breakouts occasionally (normally hormonal ones) and although they still scar quite a bit, I really have noticed that the redness isn't lasting as long as it was. I think my simplified skincare routine has helped a lot, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's actually because I just haven't been as upset or stressed as I was when my skin was at its worst. Yay!
