July Round Up

July has been a funny old month; bittersweet in many ways and insanely busy. Time off was rare, and days off were spent on spontaneous trips to London and exploring the seaside. July saw many an ice-cream eaten, and perhaps too little vegetables (I’ll make sure to work on that in August).

I graduated (yay!), had surgery (boo!) and rejected a job that turned out not to be the best fit for me. Again, bitter-sweet but I have been told countless times that everything will work itself out, so I’m entering August with that mentality.

In amongst the crazy, I’ve consumed a hell of a lot of great box sets and binge read even better blog posts. So here is everything that I have watched/read and listened to this July.

WATCHING

House of Cards: The latest season of House of Cards recently returned on Netflix, so I’ve spent most of July catching up with the political dramas of the Underwoods. Think Scandal but far more moody.

Game of Thrones: Oh boy, have we waited a long time for the return of GoT and so far, it’s been worth the wait. I don’t need to tell you how bloody amazing this show is, everyone and their bloody cat has heard about it! Dragons, politics, wars and Jon Snow. Enough said.

BLOGGING

LISTENING

At Home With: A great female empowering podcast by YouTubers and bloggers Lily Pebbles and Anna Newton who go into the homes of extraordinary women in different fields and have a chat. Guests include Kate from Kate La Vie, Zoe Sugg and Madeline Shaw. Empowering, relatable and an easy listen.

Don’t Salt My Game: Another chatty-interviewy podcast that centers around my favourite thing; food! I’ve only listened to the first episode as it stars Izy Hossack from the amazing Top with Cinnamon, but I look forward to listening to some more interviews from like-minded foodies!

BEST MOMENTS OF JULY

Visiting London, graduating, exploring Devon, the return of Game of Thrones and spending time in the sunshine with friends.

  • Wow, August tomorrow already! Crazy. My July was spent catching up with old friends, making the most of the sun in beer gardens and celebrating Bastille Day in Nottingham. It’s our 4 year wedding anniversary in August so we’re having a party this weekend and we also have a christening, my twin nieces’ 3rd birthday party and a beer festival to go to later on in the month, as well as celebrating the return of the football season.

    • I know, I can’t believe that soon it’ll be autumn! Insane.

      Oooh how was Bastille day? Did you have a good time? Happy four years, hope you spoil each other rotten! You have *so* many exciting things planned (not sure I am as excited as you are for the return of football though! :P)

      • Haha! Yes, I know football isn’t everyone’s cup of tea! Bastille Day was lovely – we found a little French restaurant in Nottingham which was nice but didn’t blow our minds. The traditional gift for four years is fruit and flowers so I’ve bought Mr P a grapevine! x

  • Yes been loving House of Cards too! So good. Woo birthday month coming up!
