What I Read In July.


Last month I rambled on for ages about all the books I managed to power through. This month, I kind of lost my way a bit. You know how it is - when it's summer you want to be outdoors enjoying yourself, rather than curled up with a book which is much more of a winter activity. That's part of the reason why I only managed to get through three books in the past month, but what a variety of books they were!

Glossybox July 2017.


So this is the latest I've ever done a beauty box post, mainly cause I just completely forgot. July was a weird old month and I got a bit sidetracked by 'real life' so whoops, soz. Also, my photos are atrocious so overall this is a shit-show of a post (really selling this aren't I?) but it felt weird to not post it.

Mental Health + Relationships - with Becky from Stronger Together!


Isn't the internet amazing? This platform has given us somewhere to share how we feel, help and support each other, and really achieve things that will make a difference. Becky, who runs the blog Stronger Together, is a brilliant example of this. Not only does she blog, she also runs a Twitter chat which offers help and advice, and has her own charity project that sends out boxes of treats to people who deserve them. What a truly special lady she is!

Birchbox July 2017.


As much as I've been enjoying the sunshine (sometimes), it's been strange seeing as I've not seen my husband since mid-May. However, we've finally booked our honeymoon - despite being married for two years already - and we're going on holiday next month! So I was very excited to see whether July's beauty boxes had anything in the that would be coming on holiday with me!

Mental Health + Relationships - with Mami Skilts!

Isn't blogging amazing? On the one hand, you can find excellent tips and reviews for beauty, fashion and books, but on the other, you find bloggers who open up, share their story, and really connect with their readers. Sarah (aka Mami Skilts) is the driving force behind not one, but two blogs, which is very impressive in its own right! But when you read about the challenges life has thrown at her, it's even more remarkable that she finds the time. But I am so glad she does, as her posts are always really well-written, heartfelt and so genuine.

Alcohol and Me.


I feel like I could sum up this whole post in advance by just saying "alcohol makes me even more of a dick than I normally am", but I'm not sure you can really call one sentence a blog post.

What I Read In June.


Ever since I was a young 'un, reading has been one of my favourite ways to spend an afternoon. In my opinion, there's nothing better than curling up on a sofa (or, as is usually the case with me, in a bed) and spending a few hours in a completely different reality. Reading is so good at calming me on panicky, anxiety-ridden days, at helping me to see another person's perspective, and at letting me experience thousands of different existences, all from the comfort of my own home. 
I noticed that over the last few years, the amount I was reading for fun significantly dropped off. I found myself glued to screens instead, but I've been desperate to stop spending so much time on Netflix and Twitter. I decided to take up a challenge on Goodreads and set myself a goal of reading 52 books in 2017. So far I've read 34, so I'm not doing too badly - I'm 8 books ahead of schedule!
