[ad-pr visit – I was gifted the Simply Windsor Afternoon Tour trip by Golden Tours]

As a huge fan of the Royal Family, when I got offered the opportunity to go to Windsor Castle on an afternoon coach trip, I just couldn't pass. I had always wanted to visit Windsor – both the town and the castle – so it was truly a dream to travel from London with Golden Tours.

I'm just a tad older than Taylor Swift was when she had just released her 1989 album for the first time back in 2014, and now I'm 26 and vowing to live my best 1989 era as she releases her iconic Taylor's Version of the hit record. 

Okay, so there's more than one person I'm hung up on... kinda. Three to be precise. But why on earth am I still hung up on this one person that I couldn't even break up with, nor could they with me? Because after all, we were never anything to each other, and as Andi sings, "if you never had him you can't break up". 

[ad-pr – I was given complimentary tickets to visit Kew Gardens]

So you're probably well aware of my passion for autumn by now, which is why I couldn't pass up the opportunity of going to Kew Gardens in the fall to witness the leaves change their colours and soak up the golden sunshine while exploring nature, botanics and everything else Kew is so famous for.

October is the most wonderful time of the year, right? After all, it's one of the only times of the year that it feels okay to slow down a little, appreciate nature, all that's around you and practice self care properly. And that's exactly what I'm doing this autumn – self care, self care, self care – and you should too.
