Throughout July, I was very lucky to receive some amazing things in the post. As a blogger, as I’m sure a lot of you will understand, post time can be your favourite time of day and the postman can become your best friend. I get along really well with my postman now as he’s always bringing me parcels! Anyway, I worked with some great brands and received some amazing books in the post this past month so I wanted to share them with you here along with some other goodies! I’m also thinking of maybe doing one of these ‘stuff hauls’ every month! What do you think?
In case you didn’t notice or didn’t see me tweeting about the fact I was blogging every day in July – I blogged every day in July! Did you hear? I’ve blogged every day in a month once before and that was last October for Blogtober. And afterwards, I vowed I’d never do it again. So naturally, I did it again. This time though, it definitely wasn’t as bad and I definitely think I gained much more from it this time around where I did it of my own accord. Here are some things I’ve learnt and/or noticed from blogging every day in July.
I wasn’t actually planning on posting anything else until July but I figured it’s a good a place as any for general ramblings about stuff I’m feeling right now. So I wanted to talk about and share some current goals I have at this moment in time for the month/s ahead. They’re mostly blog related, unless I think of any random thins I want to do like skydiving. Hahahah, nope.
I set myself a July reading target of 8 books. That might seem like absolutely squat to some of you crazy ass readers out there who get through like 15 books a week (seriously, how do you do it? Time-turners? Magic? Idk) but to me, that’s a hella lot. I’m a slow reader as it is and I tend to let my life and emotions get in the way of my reading a lot more than I should, considering books are there to help you escape from that very thing. But, I tried my best and managed to read a total of 3 books but currently have 2 on the go. I will be reviewing 1 or 2 of them in full but here’s a re-cap of July’s reading list!
