Gratitude Journal: July

gratitude
/ noun
the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.


I honestly don’t know how to sum up July. Part of me feels like it has passed quickly but then part of me also remembers these memories/highlights very clearly. I treated myself to new items this month, a DSLR was the big one but I also bought clothes and makeup. My emotions have been weird which is why I’m not sure what to say about July. I’m glad it’s over I guess?!

Here’s what made me smile in July:

July 1: When you get given chocolate cake at work.

July 2: Finished another jigsaw puzzle.

July 3: Kitty cuddles in bed.

July 4: When your boyfriend sees a ‘Tag a girl who looks beautiful without makeup’ meme on Facebook and says, “you” – he’s so sweet!

July 5: Unexpected trip to the MAC counter, came away with two items.

July 6: Thought provoking chats with the boyfriend.

July 7: After researching DSLRs for the past week and a bit I keep going back to the Canon 700D.

July 8: The Body Shop’s Cocoa Butter body butter smells delicious – almost like chocolate!

July 9: Wore Show Orchid for the second time and I’ve only had it four days.

July 10: Butter chicken leftovers for lunch.

July 11: Rose gold eyeshadow.

July 12: Wearing a bright pink fluffy robe on a cold evening.

July 13: Finally caved and bought the Canon 700D camera – can’t wait to use it!

July 14: Had a hot chocolate made for me at work.

July 15: Up to date with PointlessBlogVlog’s videos… again. Sometimes I fall behind but I catch up eventually.

July 16: Out of work on time and ready for my days off after working six days (52 hours) in a row!

July 17: Got to see my love for the first time in a week.

July 18: My camera arrived!

July 19: Wearing a pair of ponte pants I bought yesterday.

July 20: Chenille cardigan arrived, it’s so soft and warm!

July 21: I blimmin’ love Show Orchid!

July 22: Took my first photo for the blog with my camera. (The photo in my July Favourites 2017 post).

July 23: Changing into comfy clothes after work is such a relaxing feeling.

July 24: Pepperoni pizza for lunch.

July 25: Cuddles when you feel sad help you feel better.

July 26: Louie Spence on The Chase is one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a while.

July 27: Kept myself busy meaning the day passed quicker. Burger King for dinner was also a treat!

July 28: Wore my go to lip colour and eyeshadow today, such a winning combination.

July 29: Steps were on New Zealand TV!

July 30: Bought a very bling nail polish on my lunch break; Glow Your Own Way by Essie.

July 31: Ticking tasks off to do lists is rewarding.

    Yay for the DSLR camera!! ❀ Enjoy it!
    I agree, the Body Shop Cocoa Butter body does smell almost like chocolate. πŸ™‚
    Show Orchid looks amazing on you – a great colour for the colder months too.
    Oooh I've not seen Essie Glow Your Own Way – so pretty!

      I am so far, the manual modes aren’t too difficult either! I hope they bring the Cocoa Butter back 😍 Show Orchid is the Chanelle colour, fuschia/bright pink any day! I painted my nails with it on Sunday and it looks so nice!
