Month In Review - July.

I bought some Peonies and they were beautiful.

Spent two weeks at home and my boyfriend has a total bromance with the dog, cuties!

I made homemade peach lemonade and it was the greatest thing I've ever tasted. Look out for the recipe on Nouvelle Daily!

I took hundreds of photo's of the kitty cats because I just LOVE them.

This month has been a crazy one (kind of, I'm just easily crazed..) with lots of things going on! I lost my blogging mojo for a while at the beginning of the month, but don't worry I found it again, it was chilling in the fridge! being clever and keeping cool in this ridiculous heatwave. I think I even shocked myself by wearing skirts and shorts for a solid two weeks this month. 
I also spent another two weeks down south visiting my mama, I had a lovely relaxing time, it was actually nice that she lives pretty much in the middle of nowhere for a change.

I'm going on holiday for a week at the end of August (I'm looking for a few guest bloggers, email me if you're interested :)) We're going to Spain and I'm so excited. I haven't been abroad in many many years and I don't remember what travelling on a plane is really like. I've checked google and there's a Sephora nearby so hopefully I can find it! But mostly I'll be attempting to look after my little sister while she lives in the ocean and I read on the beach. 

I've slowly and secretly been implementing adverts onto my blog in the past few months. I hope nobody minds but I'm just testing the waters. I use Passionfruit at the moment to host & process the ads, it's super simple but they've recently upgraded their services and it costs more for me to use now, so I may switch soon. If you'd like to advertise your blog with me over on the left sidebar you can here & use the code '20OFF' for a 20% discount at checkout, bargain! I've decided to only have 5 ads showing at once as I don't know about you but clutter makes me cringe, plus then there's more chance of people seeing and clicking your button! :) This is all new but if you have any questions feel free to email or tweet me!

Now for some blog love & link sharing! I love discovering new blogs, reading old favourites and sharing my own posts, isn't blogging neat? ;)
