End of July

The last day of July already!

Time is just flying by, but I cant deny that its been a good month for me.

Especially in terms of blogging as I’ve been doing it daily this month, so I’ve been able to share much more than usual. I’ve gained some new followers but also found some really cool new blogs. Most importantly I’ve been enjoying it.

Also I’m really looking forward to August, I feel like its going to be a good month!

I’m gonna keep this post short as I am pretty worn out from painting for about 5 hours today and I baked cupcakes. 🙂

Thanks for reading and see you in August!

July’s themed posts

For the month of July I chose the theme of Favourites because I wanted to share some of my favourite things with you. This is just a quick round-up of the posts I did this month in case you missed them.




I’ve really enjoyed doing this theme and next month there will be another theme, but I haven’t decided what it is yet. I’ll let you guys know in a couple days!

Favourite bloggers

Hey you!

For this weeks favourites post I decided to share a few of my favourite blogs ever!

I’d really like for you to check out at least one them, you just might find a new favourite blog 🙂

Seth Godin

I admire Seth Godin very much. He’s a blogger, works in marketing and writes books. Godin is also the reason I decided to start daily blogging as it’s something that he does. The reason I like his blog so much is because I learn something new everyday. Also I emailed him and he responded which was so nice of him and unexpected.

The next 2 blogs are similar as they are both mainly style blogs that also include some life stuff aswell.

Regally Blonde

I’ve been following this blog for ages and I still like it as much as I did then. Her style is very chic and totally different from mine but I still use her outfit posts for inspiration sometimes. I really like the photography on her blog as well and also her style of writing as it’s always interesting to read.


I’ve been following her blog pretty much from the start and her blog just continues to get better. Her blog is one of my favourites because she wears outfits that I would wear, she blogs daily even though she has a busy life and I always look forward to reading the next post.


Here are some of the other blogs I follow:



Dianas book

Into the soulshine

I’ve got cake



That’s it for this post, thanks for reading!

Favourites July: Music

Hello 🙂

I listen to quite a variety of music and for the 2nd week of Favourites July, I have decided to share a bunch of my favourite songs that I listen to. I’ve also included my favourite line from each song.

I have the fun stuff like:

One direction- I don’t have a specific song, I actually like quite a few including Something great, Magic and Strong.

Pots haring tots by George Clinton- “you would walk before I run and I’d run away with you”


The sad/ I’m feeling emotional  stuff like:

Beat to beat by The Jezabels- “all of the things that I don’t want all of the things that I don’t need are weighing me down, are weighing me down, but it goes on”.

Tracks of my tears by Smokey Robinson- “take a good look at my face, you’ll see my smile looks out of place”.

Easier to lie by Aqualung- “honestly to look you in the eye, it’s easier to lie”.

Take me home by Aqualung- “there’s a dead end straight ahead wont you take me home”.

Good times gonna come by Aqualung- “you came to me from nowhere with nothing and no one”.

Up on the roof by The Drifters- the only place I know where you just have to wish to make it so”.

Saving all my love for you by Whitney“each time I try I just break down and cry cus I’d rather be home feeling blue”.


The songs that cheer me up/make me smile:

The end by The Jezabels- “if you give me  a chance I wont lie I wanted to thank you for pulling me back from the brink”.

You’ll like it too by Funkadelic “would it be alright to share our dreams with you”.


Lastly is a song that goes in a category all by its self because I truly feel like I can relate to the lyrics:

She’s so hard by the Jezabels- “maybe your just to good for me, or maybe your just no use to me”.


Thanks for reading, let me know your favourite songs or artists in the comments.

Life snippets: July’s theme

When I first started SotL I used to do snippets of the month posts. They included what I’d been up to for that month and some of my current favourite things.

I stopped doing them as I didn’t enjoy making them after a while. I think it was because I found it difficult to structure them in a way that created regularity, so they often ended up a bit of a mess.

Last month I actually thought about starting up Snippets of the month again (as I know I now have the time to plan them properly), this is how I came up with July’s theme: Favourites.

Each week there will be a different focus: Tv, music, style and blogs.

I’m looking forward to ‘Favourites July’ as I think its quite a fun and chilled theme in comparison to some of the other ones I’ve chosen.

I’ll be posting the first one of the month in about a week.
