Monthly Round Up | July

July 31, 2014

Life | I spent the first couple of days of the month in sunny, sunny Tenerife, but I think you’re probably sick of hearing about that by now!  However, major holiday blues are still occurring. This month as I’ve had a little bit more spare time, I’d set myself a little challenge to do something different and bake more, I recreated Vivianna’s ‘Cookie Monster’ recipe and they were absolutely delicious. I’ve also been eyeing up a lot of recipe’s over on Helen’s Blog, she bakes the most delicious treats, search for the amazing cookie dough sandwiches! I also bought my 21st birthday dress even though my birthday isn’t until October (oh, me!) but my dream dress went in the sale and only my size was left, I consider that as fate, don’t you? You’ll have to wait another few months to see it but trust me, it’s a beauty! I should enlist myself as a Disney Princess right now…

Blog | The most exciting thing that’s happened to me this month is that I’ve been shortlisted in the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards again this year, this time in the ‘Best Established Beauty Blog’ category – which still seems nuts to me! I’ve said it a trillion times but thank you so much, it wouldn’t of happened without you who reads my blog! I also launched my own make-up free confidence campaign called #ProjectBareAll, if you haven’t joined in yet, where have you been? Upload that make-up free selfie and join the hashtag! I’m so happy that it’s worked out so well. I also purchased some new equipment (a new camera and MacBook to be exact) which means that I can get some high quality photos up on here and it also means that I can film plenty more YouTube videos! Yay! Make sure you subscribe as a lot more content will be coming your way!

So pretty exciting month for me all round. I really feel that the book, ‘The Secret’ has helped me out a lot this month, I’m thinking so much more positively and the results are amazing. You’ll know exactly what I mean if you’ve read it. Let me know what you’ve been up to this month and what your favourite posts were!
