July was a pretty good month overall 🙂 I’m still working from home, which has been lovely 🙂 Although the lockdown restrictions have now eased, J and I haven’t started venturing out anywhere, apart from the supermarket for our weekly click and collect. I’m not really in a hurry to go anywhere, although I am missing IKEA!!
Anyway, here’s what my July looked like 🙂
I was recently approached by Shake Shack to try out their new Brighton takeout only store (available from Deliveroo)!! J and I had burgers, fries and a shake each and I wrote a review post about our meal!
What I’ve loved:
I randomly stumbled upon Disney Emoji Blitz on the Play Store and I’ve been obsessed ever since!! It’s a “get the same icons in a row” game and they’re all different Disney emojis. You can play daily challenges, complete level missions and earn virtual coins to buy new emojis to play with!
I also treated myself to a couple of enamel pins. I got this door pin from DorkFace. It’s Boo’s door from Monster’s Inc and goes so well with my Sully pin (I think I need a Mike Wasowski and Boo pin to go with them now).
I also got this jar of fireflies pin (the fireflies glow in the dark!!) and a Golden Gate Bridge Polaroid pin from the loveliest lady on Etsy. She has so many beautiful designs which you can check out on her website or Etsy page 🙂

Ever since I’ve had to buy my own washing powder, I’ve tended to buy the cheapest because it saves money and it still cleans your clothes the same. However, the Asda Smartprice washing powder doesn’t really smell of anything, which means my clothes look clean but they don’t smell like they’ve just been washed 😭
So I decided to get a different washing powder and went for Asda’s Tropical Powder! It smells absolutely incredible and I love it! My clothes now smell amazing, even when they’ve been in the drawer for ages ♥️🌴
Home and garden:
I think I’ve talked about this on the blog before, but I feel that our landscape gardener did a pretty shit job building the fence that runs between us and our next door neighbour. The fence panels look cheap and the ground on our neighbour’s side is lower than ours, so when the landscaper put in the fence posts, our side looked great but our neighbour’s side had massive amounts of concrete showing 🙁
We spent a lot of last year digging out our garden so we could make it the same level as the ground next door. The idea was that we would then dig out all the posts and re-do them so they looked better for our neighbour! Fun times! 😐😐
We decided to buy new fence panels to replace the old ones and we wanted to finally start building the fence at the back of the garden too!! Luckily we bought the fence panels just before lockdown but we weren’t so lucky with the posts!
Due to covid19, it seemed like everywhere was out of stock!! A couple of weekends ago, we finally found some posts so we drove over to pick them up! We had great fun trying to get them in the car so the weight was distributed evenly, but we managed it! We even managed to get one put in the ground and put a couple of our new fence panels up too!!
It’s starting to look much better and we put up the corner panels first so that we could level out the flowerbed to allow me to plant our cherry tree 🍒🌸
