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!
I wouldn’t have said I was obsessed with shoes or trainers, but while I was sorting out my wardrobe recently, I realised I owned a hell of a lot more pairs than I thought I did and some that I’d completely forgotten I even owned 😬😬 As it was obvious I wasn’t going to ever wear a lot of them again, I decided to get rid of a load; to charity, to the tip and on Depop!
Until I met J, I wasn’t very good with saving money on anything. I used to stick to the same companies year on year for my insurance, mobile and internet providers because I was too lazy to switch. I’d also buy the same products all the time, not even looking at whether there was a cheaper alternative.
I’m now completely reformed and consider myself to be pretty savvy, so I thought I’d start a new series on my blog – Money Saving Tips!
