It’s been a big 12 months, and never did I think at the start of the year I’d be sitting here taking stock in the way that I am. I couldn’t imagine that I’d be a year post-graduation still without a degree related job, I didn’t think I’d still be at my hospitality job of 6 years, truthfully I didn’t envisage myself as single and I thought I’d be toasting out 2017 in a much more joyful way. Instead it’s been a hard year and I’m still a bit shellshocked by it all.
Well that month flew by too. I’m sorry for the lack of post last week I was swamped in uni report writing and then I got some weird tonsilitis/glandular hybrid and I’m still trying to recover from that so I wasn’t just being lazy when I didn’t publish this last week, I was actively dying. But now I’m almost recovered and if I don’t write my September favourites this week it will be the middle of October and too late. I’ve collected a strange little pile of favourites this month and I’m in a chatty mood so get ready for tangents.
So since we’re more than halfway through the year I thought it would be good (or really self-esteem crushing) to re-read and re-publish my resolutions with updates as to how I’ve done. For clarity – regular font is the original text from January, italics is me now.
I refuse to believe it’s August, I’m going to continue pretending it’s still April and that we’re not well into the second half of the year. Other than time speeding by I’ve re-established my love for a few products and found a new love too. Here’s my July Favourites.
This month has been interesting. Finishing exams for my second last semester, starting my final official uni holidays and family matters compounded to make June a slow rollercoaster of a month. I probably wore a full face of makeup only three or four days out of the entire month so my June favourites are makeup free and all about laziness, comfort and care.
