As it’s my 34th birthday next week, and I had to drop the post I was going to put up this week due to a miscommunication, I thought I’d let you know 34 of the things that I’ve learnt in the (nearly) 34 years of being alive!
Having massively got back into Harry Potter recently, I thought I’d share my small (for now) collection with you. This post was inspired by Fiona and you can check out her blog post here.
Well, we’re well over halfway through the year, this sunshine thing is amazing (despite our grass looking decidedly brown now) and July has been pretty awesome to be honest 😀
Before we got our bookcases, I wasn’t able to have scented candles or wax melts burning away, mostly because we only had low surfaces (like our coffee table) and inevitably, Mr Bear would come along and stick his face right in the wax or the flame!!
I last did one of these back in 2016 (you can read the post here) so I thought it was time for a bit of an update!! At the moment I’m using my gorgeous dark green crossbody bag that I picked up from Primark; it was £7 but when I got to the till, it was down to £3 in the sale 😀 I love colour (even though it’s not a colour I’d normally go for) and the beetle detailing on the front.
Before I met J, I was never really into having the latest gadgets and gizmos; 1. Because I could never afford them and 2. I always saw gadgets as a bit gimmicky, something I’d use once and never use again.
Now I’m all about that gadget life, especially ones that make my life easier!
Hard to believe we’re now halfway through the year, isn’t it? This month has gone pretty slowly for me, what about you? I think my biggest thing of June was my back problem.
Being a blogger and maintaining an active presence on Twitter and Instagram, it’s really easy for me to put up photos, tweets and blog posts that show me being awesome and at my best, but sometimes I’m really not. I do try to write more honest Insta captions to go with my pretty photos now, which I hope makes me slightly more relatable (I dunno though, do they? Can someone let me know?)
I’m not perfect by any means though and I happen to have loads of bad habits just like everyone else, so I thought I’d let you in on a few!
To be honest, when I sat down to write this month’s catch up, I could barely remember what I got up to at all. I actually had to look back at earlier blog posts and check my Google calendar to know what I did!
*Disclaimer* this post has no actual photos of feet!
I have to be honest, one of the things I hate most about the UK suddenly getting a few hot daya is everyone who shoves on a pair sandals or flip-flops, despite having spent winter neglecting their feet 😬😬😬
I mean, I’m not saying my feet are by any means perfect; my toes are slightly bent, which sometimes causes them to rub on my shoes 🤢🤢 But I do try to keep them looking as fab as I possibly can!
