JULY | Thoughts, Feelings & Goals

Thoughts & Feelings

I will be saying a much relieved goodbye to July, it sure has been a month, not bad nor good. I mean, a lot of good things have happened but it’s been a bit of a roller coaster mentally with social anxiety being a big part and stopping me from enjoying things, which sucks a lot because I’ve always been socially awkward but never really considered myself to really have social anxiety.

There’s also been a lot of stress around work and feeling drained after a days work due to the heat and pressure. Which has then lead me onto thinking about changing jobs and then stressing myself out even more about what is it I even want to do? And then that leads onto me thinking about how many different thing’s I’ve tried and end up failing.. Long story short, it’s a big downwards spiral of self pity and being too harsh on myself, all of that.

Anyway, moving onto some positivity;

What I’ve Been Up To





  • I went to my first ever concert! You can read it here, I recommend it, lol.
  • I went to my boyfriends brothers wedding, it was absolutely beautiful!
  • Me and my boyfriend went on the loveliest day out getting lost and had a fab picnic.
  • Me and my boyfriend went to the Natural History Museum and then I went again with mum.
  • Invited my brother and his girlfriend round and we all ordered pizza and had a game night which was so much fun.





  • Not to toot my own horn but, The picture of the reservoir is definitely my favourite picture I’ve taken in July.
  • I have gained a love for Irregular Choice shoes, especially the red ones in the middle picture.
  • My tortoise! Jeeves. I feel like we bonded a lot more, he’s lovely.

August To-Do’s & Goals

  • I have a massive urge to dye my hair purple, so why not? Though I’m not sure my boyfriend would appreciate the recklessness, hah.
  • A day out in London! I’ve said this from the beginning of the year but money seems to fall through my hands, but I do have a trip booked next week which I’m hoping to do a post on! (You can read said post here)
  • Harry Potter movie marathon
  • Calm down, I get myself so worked up sometimes about the little things. Like, I was 4 minutes late for work, calm down, it’s not the end of the world.
  • Keep involved with blogging. I feel like sometimes I’ll go through stages where I don’t interact at all, I want more of a constant interaction and put a little more effort in.
  • Push my comfort zones with style, meaning I should go and buy non-plain playsuits and stop being a plain jane, not that there’s anything wrong with plain (don’t get me wrong, you can’t beat it sometimes) but I just want to have a play around with wearing things I wouldn’t normally wear.
  • Sort out a new header and logo for my blog

What’s going on in your August? Do you have any goals?

  1. I hear you on the anxiety, July was a mental roller coaster for me too. I’m trying to figure out what I want to do as a career still too. We have plenty of time, but also not really. I love those shoes! I think I’m starting to like weird shoe choices, those heels are so cute. Your tortoise is so cute, makes me think of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. No way! I’ve been wanting to dye my hair lavender. I’m thinking of doing a temporary color spray to try out just in case. Also, I’ve only seen the first two Harry Potter movies, I need to do that marathon with you! My main two goals are to learn to drive and get a job. In August the main thing happening for me is in 10 days!!! I’m visiting my boyfriend in Arizona and I’m so excited to meet his friends and have a great time! ❤

    1. Ahh stick in there, we’ll ride this rollercoaster out together 😂 it sounds like you have exciting things coming up! I’m excited for you. I was never a fan of odd shoes until recently which I find quite funny. And I think you should definitely go lilac/experiment with your hair! I’ve only just finished the second movie, so good so far ☺️ I hope you’re well, missed you! x x

    1. Thankyou so much! I wanted to choose some reachable goals as I’m sick of choosing goals I THINK are reachable but never happen 😩 do you have any goals for August?!


  2. That reservoir pic is stunning! Also, I love your goals, they seem to be the perfect balance between doable and dreaming. My August is pretty quiet, I’m just working mostly, so I’m aiming to take time for myself and my blog!
