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!

Mental Health + Relationships - with Curious Pandora!

I have been incredibly lucky with the people who have taken part in this series: every single one has had something unique to say, and I feel like each one has taught me something valuable that I hadn't thought of before. This is particularly true of Pandora, who I feel like I am constantly learning things from! Pandora's blog is one of my favourites because it is so individual and full of her personality. It's so refreshing to find a blog that's a bit different, and that actually makes you think. Pandora's definitely does that.

Glossybox June 2017.

Something I've discovered this month is that people on the internet are absolute crooks. Okay, so I already knew that - I mean I have been online for decades - but while Googling the full-size weights of the products in this box, I noticed people on eBay were selling the items individually for a tenner each (at least!). I appear to be missing out on a real money-making scheme...

Mental Health + Relationships - with Abbie Huggan!

In this day and age, in our world full of bloggers who have very carefully curated themes, some of my favourite blogs to read are those who completely buck that trend and talk about anything and everything. I love getting to know a blogger through their posts, seeing their true personalities and finding out what makes them tick. Abbie Huggan, and her blog Over Peach Chic, is a great example of this. Abbie writes about such a wide variety of topics - from university to Disney, to favourites, and chatty posts about her life - there's something for everyone. Abbie is also an absolute sweetheart, so I was really pleased when she agreed to take part in this!
