Yes, I am writing this on the fifteenth of July even though this post should have been scheduled on the first of July. Sorry 🙂

June has been a very ordinary, yet exciting month. I was greatly disappointed due to the fact that I hadn’t read much at all in the month of June but I was also super excited for the holidays. Despite the fact that school was dragging along slowly when the holidays finally arrived I couldn’t contain my excitement, especially because we were going away. I visited many different places and it felt like such a relief to have the pressure of school lifted off of my shoulders. However, school has started again and I am so not ready but nevertheless, I am going to try to make this term a good one. Also, last month I took a few breaks with blogging and it felt nice to take a break but that still doesn’t excuse the fact that I love blogging and instagraming, which is why I’ll be posting lots more soon! Here are some of my favourites from last month:

Obsessions:

Here are some of my recent obsessions!

Music :

I have been obsessed with Often by Kygo and of course, Shawn Mendes’ new song Treat You Better! I have literally been playing them on repeat and I can not get enough! I have been really loving I Heart Radio recently. Instead of playing my spotify playlist, sometimes I’ll put on a hit music station from the website. I’ve been loving the LA I Heart Radio Hits Station the most.

 

Gossip Girl:

I only just started this show, so no spoilers, please! I watch TV shows awfully slow and although I started this show two months ago I’m only on season two. I try to watch it when I have spare time but the drama and gossip in this TV show is so so good. It may sound weird that I enjoy watching people gossip about others but this TV show is honestly one big web of interlocking events that has kept me so entertained!

Shopping

Well…I’ve always had an obsession with shopping but because I have been shopping a lot lately, I thought why not add it to my obsessions list? I’m more of a summer girl and so lately I have been lots buying of summer dresses, some sweatshirts and bags. I recently visited this mall, which was huge! I spent nearly two days there shopping and I still haven’t visited every store in the mall. I bought heaps of stuff there and I can’t wait to wear and use them .

june reads + book hauls

As I mentioned earlier June was a disappointing reading month. I only read a few books, which include Rebel Of The Sands, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Last Star and The Leaving. Hopefully, July will be much more exciting in terms of books and I can’t wait to dive into some good books. Here are some of the books I got this month:

DSC_0313_FotorThe Last Star by Rick Yancey (The 5th Wave #3)
Blood In The Beginning by Kim Falconer (Ava Sykes Series)
When Michael Met Mina by Randa Abdel-Fattah
The Girl From Everywhere by Heide Heilig
Rebel Of The Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Caramel Hearts by E. R. Murray

july goals

Here are some of goals for this month:
– To workout more intensively and for more periods of time, as well as eating a proper healthy diet.
– To actually work on my blog and Instagram more seriously and with a proper effort and attitude. (*cough* as you can see that didn’t really happen for the first half of the month but there are still 16 more days)
– Write some more lifestyle posts!
– To balance most things in my life, especially the reading facet of my life. This brings me to my next point my July TBR.

july tbr:

Caramel Hearts by E.R. Murray
The Blood In The Beginning by Kim Falconer

Yay! So this is my June + July wrap-up and TBR! List some books you want to read this month, so I can add it to my own TBR! What have been your recent obsessions?

#shoptilyoudrop shopping life hacks

This is my first lifestyle/fashion post but as a teenager of the 21st century, I adore shopping. No, I mean I seriously have an addiction. I hope I’m not the only one. 🙂 I love shopping for clothes and books too but this post is primarily going to be about shopping for clothes because who doesn’t like to go on an all out shopping spree? As a dedicated shopping enthusiast, one of the things that make me extremely happy whilst I’m shopping is finding and buying discounted clothes, which are normally expensive. I am all about the Black Friday and Boxing Day sales because who wouldn’t want to pay heavily discounted clothing that is good quality and looks amazing. However, I know that we don’t have sales every day and sometimes we really want to buy something but it’s way too expensive. So, today I decided to give you my top two tips on how to save your money when it comes to shopping.

using unidays…

Iery283ur2f there was a literal angel for shopping, Unidays would be it. Unidays is basically an app and website in which students, from both university and school can sign up to receive amazing discounts from good brands. If you click the link in the photo, you can sign up to the platform. What’s really good about Unidays is the fact that the discounts are from well-known brands, such as, Boohoo, Apple, The Iconic and ASOS. It also doesn’t just have fashion discounts. It’s a great platform overall for students who want to find student discounts. Not only that but whenever you recommend someone to the platform you can get store credit. This post may have been prompted by the people at

Not only that but whenever you recommend someone to the platform you can get store credit. This post may have been prompted by the people at Unidays but I wouldn’t share something with you guys if I thought it was bad. I’ve been using Unidays for a while and I love it, it’s really handy to use whenever your shopping because all you have to do is whip out your phone and you’ll get the discounts. It’s definitely a handy thing to have when you are shopping online or in stores.

sales and outlets

ehr0283ue23You know that saying “Good things come to those who wait,” it definitely applies to shopping. Sometimes we see a new release dress and buy it immediately but two weeks later you discover that it goes on sale. I hate it when that happens and I know it may seem pretty obvious but sometimes if you just wait for a few more weeks, the t-shirt you wanted will often go on sale or you may even find another t-shirt that looks exactly like it from another store at a better price. Another tip that stems from this one is shopping at outlets. Outlets are heaven for shopping fashionistas. Outlets are basically a mall for famous brands in which the clothes come from the direct warehouse. Therefore, often you can find the clothes for cheaper prices or you may even be able to find clothes that they no longer sell in your everyday shop. I have so many stories about the amazing clothes I find at outlets but here is one of the. So, for a very long time I was been looking for Nike Roshes for ages and after months of searching, I could never find the right pair and they were just too expensive. One day, I decided to go shopping at an outlet and I found the perfect pair of Nikes at a discounted price. I couldn’t believe my eyes, it was pretty amazing. I got the perfect pair of Nikes at an amazing rate. Do you guys have any amazing shopping stories?

I hope you guys enjoyed this! Definitely, let me know if you guys have any shopping hacks! If you like these lifestyle posts, every once in a while let me know because I love writing these!
