My August

This month has been extremely busy! For once I have not been a boring soul, and I've had so much going on I'm a little exhausted. But it's all good, because it has all been exciting and life changing stuff. I can't believe so much has happened in a month, but I couldn't be happier right now! So if you're a nosy like me and like reading what people have been up to, carry on to see what I've been up to!

As I mentioned last month, I've been getting into my fitness. I've been struggling the past few weeks just with the torrential rain and a little ankle slip up, but I've been going at least twice a week. I've also been enjoying amazing smoothies, thanks to my new blender and Pinterest inspired meals. It feels so good to eat lovely clean meals, but I can't help but grab a bag of pick n mix or haribo. They've been my weakness this month!
I also feel I've upped my blogging game getting back into a routine. I've even bought a book about blogging, ordered my blogging business cards for events this month and attended the Magnet Look event a few weeks back!  I had an awesome time making new friends there and hearing about Magnet Look, but more of that to come later on in its own blog post.

Two very big things happened this month also. I finally have full on officially moved into my new room at home, and it's looking gorgeous. It's a monochrome, oak and red theme with a little baby pink throughout I'm absolutely loving my new bed, my desk space and that carpet is just amazing to stand on. I'm still waiting for my curtains to arrive and I'm mid-way refurbishing my vintage chair, but after it's all 100% complete I'll do a bedroom tour! Would you like to see that?
The second and biggest thing this month was that I actually finished working at Miss Selfridge. It was my last day about a week and a half ago and it took me about 5 days to realise I wasn't going back, and I got a little sad. It was a hard thing to understand because I've been working with the company for such a long time, but I'm moving on to bigger and better things and though I'm a littler nervous I'm also really excited. I actually start my new job as a TA this week and I couldn't be more happier to be working towards a career I've wanted for a really long time.

It's been a crazy month, but September is bringing me so much more! This month I'm getting a new-ish car (due to a switcharoo with vehicles at home), starting my new job and attending a bunch of blogger events! If you're going to #BloggerFestival or Bloggers Love Fashion Week - come say hi to me! We can be friends :)

  1. aww good luck in your new job, I've been toying with the idea of working in a school for a long time but I'm still not sure what I want to do (at nearly 25 not knowing what you want to do isn't exactly ideal haha)

    1. Thank you Jade! I'm 25 and this career change is scary but I always knew wanted to do it - I was just really scared before but now I'm excited! Not everyone knows what they want to do all the time so don't worry :) - I lost my way for a good 4 years but I'm okay now! x

  2. Cute photos! Good luck in your new job :)
