Reading - I actually managed to read quite a lot this month. It was a bit of a personal challenge. I used to read all the time when I was younger, but over the last few years, I prioritized TV shows and social media and really, nothing beats a good book and I've really enjoyed losing myself in the pages of another world rather than the online drama of ours. Amazon had a fantastic sale on at the beginning of the month so I picked up quite a few kindle books for 99p. This month I finished reading 'The Duff', 'Go Set a Watchman', 'Down The Rabbit Hole' and 'Girl Boss'. Not too shabby.
Watching - The month of August was dedicated to binge watching 'Gilmore Girls' on netflix. I've never watched it before and I'm currently powering through season three. It's actually quite refreshing to watch a show that's just laid back with normal ~teen drama. I'm shipping Jess and Paris so hard tho. But he'll probably end up with Rory right?!? Ahhh nobody tell me.
aaannnd I think it goes without saying that i've also been glued to Great British Bake Off, right?
Movie wise, this month I absolutely loved 'Paper Towns'. It was just so chill and funny, and although it wasn't exactly a perfect book adaption, I liked that because the book was a little bleugh. The soundtrack was fabulous too. I'm really enjoying all these John Green adaptions. I work in a cinema so I tend to see all the movies that are currently out anyway, but 'Paper Towns' was the best of the month, hands down.
I think my family might be getting sick of his album. But I don't care, it's utter perfection.
I honestly didn't think I could love him anymore and then I heard him live. He is absolutely flawless live. He recently supported Taylor Swift here in Ireland and truth be told, I was more excited to catch him performing than I was for Taylor. I keep checking Ticketmaster for him to come up as 'playing near you'. But nothing.
Spotify is my addiction and I happily pay 12€ a month for the luxury of having it on the go. When you have an iPhone with limited with storage, it's a god send. So make sure you give me a cheeky follow. At the moment I'm currently getting into 'Halsey', I blame everyone I follow on Tumblr for that.
Needing - a whole new winter wardrobe. I'm not even sorry. It's practically October. I need new clothes, cranberry and berry everything please with a hint of monochrome. In the process of saving my dollaaas so I can go blow it all on an all day trip to Penneys in Dublin. Yasss.
Hating - SPIDERS. They are everywhere. I love this time of year, but I hate the little creepy crawly things it brings with it.
Loving - i've been loving the simpler things these last few weeks
- Shorter evenings. Ahhhh winter is coming.
- Sighh designs - I have another sneaky order on the way, oops.
- Discounted books on amazon.
- Instagram & Snapchat - I'm becoming a little more obsessed with the two of these (JesskaDenise).
- Make up free days. Sometimes your skin just needs a break.
- Coloring in for adults. This trend is blowing up right now across blogs and social media. Who would have thought at the ripe old age of 22, I'd be feeling less than 22 and more like my 5 year old self with coloring pencils in hand?
What were you guys loving over August? I feel like I blinked and Summer is over. Crazy.
