Monthly Goals // August 2020

Goodbye July! Hello August!

Where on earth is 2020 going!? I cannot believe it’s August already, we’re over half way through the year and I don’t even feel like I’ve done very much! I suppose that’s actually true with this whole pandemic thing, a lot of things have been cancelled or put on hold so I haven’t actually done that much. I’ve tried my hardest to keep myself occupied with other things, I’m definitely not one to sit around and do nothing.

Now it’s the beginning of August, it’s the perfect time to reflect on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of July, then create new Goals for August. I love setting new Goals as it gets you excited for the upcoming month! Also it is good to have something to look forward to and achieve in the month. If you want to see what I got up to in July, I have shared my adventures in my Monthly Favourites // July 2020 here.

It’s great to review and reflect each month, sometimes you even forget what you’ve done. I love sharing these Monthly Goals with you. They definitely help me to stay on top of my Goals and to always think about them. If you’re trying to achieve Yearly Goals, I would definitely recommend breaking them down into Monthly Goals, that way they’re more manageable and you remember them!

Monthly Favourites // July 2020

Goodbye July! Hello August!

Ok I know it only feels like yesterday that I shared my June Favourites, well technically it was only two weeks ago! But here are my July Favourites. Normally, I would be saying, grab a cuppa and a biscuit, this is a long one but unfortunately, it’s not this time. July has been a little quiet, just like the other months! Although, July did actually go quite fast – I’ve still got an interesting Favourites post to share with you today.

I’m really looking forward to August, there’s even a couple of car shows planned. But before I move forward to August, I love reflecting on the previous month, yup that’s right I’m talking about my July Favourites. This month’s Favourites includes what I have loved throughout July. If you follow me on Instagram, you might just recognise some of my Favourites. What has been one of your Favourites from July? Let me know in the comments! I’ll love to know.

Monthly Favourites // July 2019

Hello, there August!

Can you believe it’s already August? Please just slow down! Before I realise my birthday will be here and then it will be the end of 2019. There have been back to back adventures each weekend in July, another reason for the month going crazy fast. I don’t think I would want it any other way though! Also with work getting busier, that is also making my time go quicker. It truly is going by in a flash.

Before heading into August, now is the perfect time to reflect on the previous month, I love doing this by sharing my Monthly Favourites with you! It’s time to reflect on what happened in July. Thankfully, I’m able to speak about a range of different things, a lot went on and I’m excited to share them with you today, if you follow me on Instagram, you might just know what I’m talking about.

LUSH Blooming Beautiful

I am pretty addicted to purchasing bath products, bath time for me needs to be relaxing and there’s nothing better than dropping in a bath bomb. There are a lot of bath bombs to choose from and one of my favourite places to shop from is LUSH. Since trying my first bath bomb last December, I have surely become addicted and now I like picking up a small collection to treat myself.

In my Monthly Favourites // August, I shared with you my trip to Nottingham and the art trail Hoodwinked 2018 while wandering around I came across that oh so familiar scent of LUSH. I had to pop inside and see if there was anything new and exciting, I came across the Blooming Beautiful giftset that screamed Spring and relaxation. Nothing else took my fancy so Blooming Beautiful it was.

Monthly Goals // September 2018

A new month means new adventures and new Goals for the upcoming month, it’s goodbye August and hello September. I can’t understand where the past month has gone, especially as August is a five week month. I already know what’s coming as August wasn’t the best month, I know I haven’t been able to achieve them. I wasn’t able to push myself as much as I liked thanks to being super busy each week.

Today I will be reflecting on the Goals I set myself for August and creating some new ones for SeptemberAugust has been such a busy month! Who said August is quiet? Not only has work been busy but I have been up to a variety of things outside, from visiting Red Bull Racing and spending the weekend at Silverstone, I have shared my adventures in my Monthly Favourites // August 2018 here.

Before jumping too far into the future, we first need to review what happened in August and let me tell you, there’s a couple of good ones.

How I Juggle Blogging Whilst Working Full-Time

I have been blogging on and off for nearly two years, in this time I like to think I have learnt just a little when it comes to blogging but also how to juggle this while working. It’s not been until joining 4CM that you realise how much time blogging can take up, while in university, I could work around that but also had time on the weekend.

Now it’s only the weekend I designate my time to blog. Don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t come without its problems, but thanks to being quite organised, I’m able to do it! It can get even harder when I’m away at Silverstone or just super busy travelling. I thought today I would share how I manage this and hopefully if you’re struggling to give you some handy tips.

August 2018 // World Honey Bee Day

August is just one month in a year where you’ll spot those small black and yellow flying creatures. Yes, that’s right, I’m speaking about the Honey Bee but unfortunately, one-third of the UK’s bee population has disappeared over the past decade and 24 per cent of Europe’s bumblebees are now threatened with extinction.

We can directly link these declines to changes in the way we farm. The intensification of agriculture has led to the destruction of habitat, and what is left is becoming increasingly fragmented. That’s why it is very important to look after these creatures, despite thinking they are harmful to us humans.

“If the bee disappeared off the face of the Earth, man would only have four years left to live.” Whether or not Albert Einstein did actually say this, it’s still a serious cause for concern. Today is World Honey Bee Day, a perfect day to reflect on this insect and learn about how you can help the future of this species.
