June Verbs

Can you believe we’re in the second half of the year?  As I mentioned in ‘Summer So Sneaky’, it only feels like a few weeks ago I was snuggled in my onesie with candles and a cuppa.  But no, 6 whole months have flown by in the blink of an eye.  My ‘Verbs’ feature has actually really help me keep a track of what I’ve been up to!  Here’s June:

Watching: Gossip Girl

I’m guilty.  I craved.  I’m watching Gossip Girl for the THIRD time.  I just can’t get enough.  Every time I think I remember the storyline or what’s going to happen, there’s a twist, a new character, a new plot, or just something I didn’t see the first time around.  It’s addictive.

Reading: Blogs

Just cause I’ve been away from the blogging scene, doesn’t mean I haven’t been checking up on it.  I use a website called BlogLovin to keep up to date with all my favourite bloggers and writers who post about all sorts of topics, from all over the world.  I’d encourage you to sign up to not only keep up to date with my blog, but to see who I follow and discover some new and exciting authors.

A seriously good idea.

A seriously good idea.

Listening To: Ella Henderson – Ghost

I seriously can’t get enough of this song.  I was a huge fan of Ella during her time on the X Factor and her debut single is an absolute winner in my eyes.  For those of you who don’t know, I love to sing, so I’ve made a cheeky cover of this track.  Whilst I am by no means confident enough to share it with you, my style is quite similar to Ella (if I do say so myself!).  Have a listen and I guarantee it’ll be in your head before you know it!

Wearing on my body: Nine West Sandals

These beaut Nine West Sandals cost me around £60 three summers ago.  So the way I see it, that’s £20 per summer.  Not bad.  I can be seen wearing these in a few of my summery #OOTD posts, including my Cyprus series from last summer.  Comfy, cool and colourful.

Such a beaut brand.

Such a beaut brand.

Wearing on my face: Nothing

This June, I’ve ditched the foundation and been baring all.  There’s nothing worse than achieving a gorgeous summer glow and then not having correct make-up colouring to compliment it.  To stay on the safe side, I’ve barely been wearing any make-up thus far.  I’m allowing my skin to breathe and becoming naturally bronzed in the process!

Eating: Tesco Feta Dip and Bruschetta Snacks

Everyone knows I’m a bit of a cheese fanatic so when these beaut snacks of feta cheese joy landed in my local Tesco … I bought the lot.  I think I’m over my addiction now, but it certainly wouldn’t stop me buying them in the future.  Sweet, salty, tangy and bursting with flavour.  Go on, buy!

Seriously good!

Seriously good!

Drinking: Water

Lately, I’ve been getting quite bad headaches when I’ve been dehydrated.  So, I’ve been making sure I’m always carrying around chilled water reading to sip, glug or chug whenever necessary.  My skins clearer and my headaches have practically disappeared.

What did you get up to this June?

 

 

 

Oh, Hey

Howdy.  How are you all?  Sorry for my absence.  It’s 2 weeks until I start at my MA at University and I am well and truly making the most of the last of my holidays until September 2014.  I’ve been seeing a lot of friends and family, sightseeing, hanging out and just mentally preparing to start 9-5 again.  

I had a beautiful weekend in the Isle of Man.  I forget how peaceful and beautiful it is there.  When you wake up in the morning, you can’t hear car alarms, the rumbling of trains and early morning market traders, you hear .. well, nothing.  I love living urban, I do.  I’m very cosmopolitan by nature and I get a bit queasy if I don’t see concrete and a skyscraper every day.  I’m just a city girl.  But I do love the countryside, in short lengths of time!

Yesterday, I also started back at the Street Dance school I attended for 7 years before I headed off to University.  It was absolutely fantastic.  There were some old faces and new faces, classic moves and mod moves.  I’m so excited to get really stuck in and see what the new term brings.

Gosh, this has been the first time I have just sat down and wrote, in a really long time!  I’m going glamping (yes, glamping!) this weekend so I will try and get some photos there to post for you all.  Today, I’m about to experience the legend that is Costco!  I intend to purchase bottled water, tuna and wine.  Priorities!

Anyway, it’s been lovely to stop by.  In the mean time, if you fancy exploring my random ramblings and ways of life, you can follow:
