July has just disappeared in a blink of an eye hasn’t it. This month for me has been such a manic one – I have done quite a fair bit and I would love to share with you what I have got up to.
I began July sat in a cosy little cottage in Aberffraw in Anglesey. This is the quietest, most remote place I think I have ever visited but the beaches are just incredible. They are massive, untouched and perfect for photos. I went with my parent’s for a “you are nearly done at work, keep going” holiday and it was SO lovely. Me and my Mum took our kites – yes I know, we are both over the age of 5 – and my Dad went fishing. You know when you have a “just dump your suitcases down, pop your wellies on and let’s go” holiday… yeah, they are the best. This was also the first holiday in a long time that I didn’t take a single item of make up with me and it felt amazing. My skin felt so amazing after it and the amount of time I saved before bed not scrubbing my face off wasn’t too bad either. I will pop in a few photos so you could see what I got up to.
A few weeks later, I finished working as a maths tutor. As I worked in two different schools, I actually had two last days, which was really weird and sad. I felt like everybody just sad goodbye to me for 48 straight hours and it made my heart go a little droopy. My final, final day was weird because the school I was in had a whole school assembly and the head teacher said goodbye to me in front of the whole school and it was funny watching everybody turn around and going “what? I’ve never even seen her before” hahaha. But, it was a nice finish to what has been a brilliant experience.
And then the day after, 56 Days of Summer began! Now, I know a lot of people said “daily blogging for 56 days? Are you mad?” and yes, i obviously am. It has been a real struggle trying to post every single day but I have managed to do it so far and I am definitely not giving up. What I have discovered though is that it has made me a lot happier doing this. There is so much positivity around this blog and my social medias at the moment because i am so active on it and I adore it (obviously, who wouldn’t love a little positivity). I have also enjoyed being a little more active on Twitter chats and comment swaps as I have got to read more blogs and discover more little hidden gems. I may not continue daily blogging through university as that may be a little impossible but it hasn’t put me off daily blogging again… well, not yet anyway haha.
While working on 56 Days of Summer, I have also been able to feature on two different blogs/ online magazines this month. Firstly, the lovely people at BULB gave me the opportunity to write for their online magazine and they published my post on the 26th of July. I will link it HERE. I chosen to write about how I have been craving independence and how I have found it a real positive change in my life. I am quite proud that I have become a guest blogger for the first time as it’s something new and I like doing something new every once in a while. The second feature was in the GirlsWhoBlog website. They had me as a featured blogger and that was also a very lovely thing to do. It was like having an interview and sharing a few things about me and my blog. If you would like to read my post then you can click HERE and if you would like to be a featured blogger yourself then you can have a read HERE.
Finally, I would like to mention something that I have written about for the last two days: The Really Good Box. Our helpmeorganics products were featured in their July Box and I am so glad because it was one of the best subscription boxes I have ever been sent. The range of items that you get is lovely and everything was amazing quality. You could tell that the creator really thought about the items that she included. If you would like to read about The Really Good Box then you can HERE and if you would like to read the July Box Review then click HERE.
And that was my July. I hope that everybody has a lovely August and I will see you tomorrow with day #15.
