July Obsessions and August Excitement

Currently feeling: extremely motivated

Okay so maybe July hasn’t been the best of months. First of all, the winter has been icy cold which has caused me to feel like a freezing block of ice. My self-confidence has been wavering in and out this whole month, which has caused a lack of motivation in many different things, including reading and blogging. I know I mentioned this a little in my previous monthly wrap-up but this month I really felt my lack of motivation and enthusiasm weighing in. To me, everything felt like a blur because I felt like I was going through the same routine every day. However this month I’ve learnt a fair few lessons in life and because of that I decided to write a post on it which will be out soon! 🙂 How has your July been?

obsessions:

Music:

Has anyone else realised that there are no good songs on the radio lately? Ugh. It’s so annoying because I love listening to the radio but there is never a good song. Nevertheless, I have to resort to my Spotify (not that that’s a bad thing)! Here are my latest favourite tracks!

Healthy Cooking:

I’ve been “healthy-cooking” for a long time now but I’ve only just realised how much fun it is to create something that is guilt-free. I love cooking healthy muffins and cookies and in the morning one of my favourite things to cook are healthy pancakes and oatmeal. Oh and let’s not forget smoothies and toasts. I think it is safe to say that breakfast is now my absolute favourite meal because I love getting up in the morning and cooking something that is simple, delicious and healthy.

For lunches, salads and rice bowls have been a go-to for me. I have to try to cook my lunches so that they are still fresh and delicious during lunchtime.

 

 

 

Film Photography

This semester I took up a photography elective but it isn’t about the normal digital photography. Instead, we have been working with film photography and it is surprisingly a lot of fun. I’ve been taking a trip back in time with one of my best friends and we have been shooting with an old film camera. I was born around the time film photography was starting to get less and less popular, which means I haven’t had a chance to use a film camera. I would love to show you how the photos have turned out but unfortunately, we are still processing the photos. When I get the photos I’ll try to share some with you guys.

 

reading updates

*inserts a large photo of the embarrassed monkey* I haven’t been reading much and it has been frustrating me so much. I’m still reading The Girl From Everywhere! I think it has been because I’ve been lately recently but also I’ll confess: Gossip Girl has captured my attention. It is just so so good! I honestly just want to devour the whole entire show so I can know what is next. My heart feels like it has been on a roller coaster with this TV show! With August comes new releases and the moment Beauty of Darkness comes out I will hole myself up in my room to read it. I’m also going to a Rainbow Rowell and David Leviathan event with some of my good friends and hopefully, that will get me in a motivated reading mood.

august excitement

It’s getting to that time of the year where even though, everything will be so hectic, you know that it’ll be the best few months of the year. I am so so excited for the things I have planned in August. Next weekend I’m going to the Selena Gomez Revival Tour with my best friend and words can not describe my eagerness. I’ve never been to a concert and to know that I’m going to one of my favourite artist’s concert with my best friend is the most exciting thing ever! Alongside that, I’m also going to be doing some exciting excursions and experience weeks with the school which is something I always look forward too.

book #tbr:

I did recently write a post on my TBR but I thought I would specify some of the books I want to read this month:

I hope you guys had a great July and an even better August? What have been some of your obsessions in July?
