Wait, so it's October what now?! Am I the only one whose September flew by? I feel like it was a particular blur, yet I know I did some stuff....there's photographic evidence! I think maybe because the first week (and a bit) was probably jet lag city for me, I then promptly went into planning for next big trip (in three weeks tomorrow, ack!) which tends to consume me. Following are some pictures which I took, many thinking "I'm going to blog the heck out of this!" and never did....such is life for an underachieving procrastinator blogger!

I made apple cinnamon pancakes, they were yummy.
I also made butternut squash risotto, the squash is so much yummier this time of year, roast it up, add to risotto, winner!
Back roads driving:
And ended up at local beauty spot Randolph's Leap - a fabled spot of (possible!) historic significance! (there are a lot of these in Scotland!)
Hints of Fall foliage..
Ever since I started following @facesinthings on Twitter I see faces everywhere! They did not retweet my awesome "Tired old rock face man", clearly they are blind! ;-0
I took this picture because I have been trying to get pictures in natural daylight of what I think are "my colours" in the whole seasonal analysis shebang. But my new phone has some weird selfie setting I can't figure how to turn off (er..."Beauty!") which blurs/softens things, which I don't really want because I want to know what my my truest best and brightest colours are.
I mean I am wearing soft colours here that fall firmly into Autumn/if not "Soft Autumn" category, but I feel like it's hard to tell if they actually do much for me because my face has been pinkened somehow by the stupid effect. Also it made my double chin look warped/worse than nature intended! Also I thought my hair looked really nicely under control this day until I saw the picture! Crazy curly haired lady dragged through a hedgerow backwards more like!.
I have warm hair and warm eyes (apparently green eyes/eyes with any yellow are ALWAYS warm) - my skin is the tricky part, it is definitely cool, but also freckles, can tan, which is why I think I am more likely a warm season than a cool. I have been talking to Shawna over at The Director of Awesome for months now trying to figure out my season, she has been nothing but patient and a font of helpful advice, do check out her posts on the subject, they are pretty awesome indeed! Anyway this is another one of those things I keep meaning to blog about and don't, partly because I am still kind of confused about it all!
