What I’ve been loving – July

What I’ve been loving – July

July July July, it’s been a  really nice month. I feel like I say this at the end of every month but I do quite like that when I think back it’s only the good stuff I remember.  I’m pretty sure there has been lots of upset, tears and cross words this month (as there is every month) but who remembers any of that!?

Here is what I have been loving in July.

1 – Birthdays! Its mine and hubbies birthday in July. I got some really lovely gifts from my friends and family and of course lots of cake was eaten. Another year older…another year wiser (we will see)


2 – The Summer holidays! Yay! No more school run and rushing around, it has been so lovely to take life at a slower pace.

Scoot scoot...

3 –  Me and my lovely man managed to get out for a lovely much needed date night. I wrote a little post about not making much time for each other – a night out together did us the world of good. We have both got a few weeks off in August to spend as a family and I can’t wait.

4 – We had a tiny bit of hot weather. Actually, the hottest day of the year which was nice – sigh – if only it would last a little longer!

5 – I reached 1,000 followers on Instagram. I joined in December and, whilst it feels like it has took me forever, I finally have got there! A little mini milestone for me.

6 – I got a lovely cardigan from Oasis – it was in the sale for £8!! I love it and have been wearing it constantly.

7 – I heard my baby’s heartbeat for the first time and it was so lovely, it brought tears to my eyes. I have also started to feel some little movements, which is exciting. We have our 20 week scan scheduled in August and I can’t wait.

8 – I got to spend some time with my bestie. She has recently had her first baby and has also been poorly so it felt like we hadn’t seen each other in a while. We finally got together just the 2 of us and it was just what I needed. I miss that girl.

9 – We booked a little family holiday. We decided to not go abroad this year to try and save a little money and, although at times (usually when it was raining) we almost cracked, we have stood by our word and booked a little UK break – a cottage in York for a week in August, which we are all really looking forward too.

10 – New make up – I got some lovely new make-up from my friend. It is a benefit set, which I love. They are all mini versions of their make up products and I love trying new things before actually buying the larger version.


So that’s July – lots to look forward to in August – I can’t wait! Although I would like time to slow down just a little.

How was July for you?
