Gratitude: August 2018

August felt like a busy month and it was nice to be distracted. I bought some new makeup from MAC and xoBeauty. I picked up my glasses and got them readjusted and they are now sitting comfortably. I’ve been a little naughty and had some fast food but I don’t often buy my lunch, I always take food to work and I tend to prefer takeaways for dinner. I’ve been reading and singing and practicing my driving too.

Here’s what made me smile:

August 1: Didn’t think I was going to make my bus on time but I did.

August 2: MAC goodies arrived!

August 3: Leftover Dominos pizza.

August 4: Days where I can read a lot are some of my favourites.

August 5: Love trying new makeup!

August 6: Three Pepper Chicken is my new favourite from Subway.

August 7: Finished Still Me.

August 8: Brainstormed new page ideas for my Bullet Journal.

August 9: Picked up my new glasses!

August 10: Did all my cleaning jobs.

August 11: Made my second xoBeauty order.

August 12: Good makeup day and nice weather.

August 13: Seems I’m not the only one who likes my bold lip colours, people tend to notice when I don’t wear one.

August 15: Got my glasses readjusted and they fit so much better now.

August 16: Found new books for my TBR list.

August 17: New Ariana music.

August 18: Garlic bread for lunch.

August 19: Hot chocolate and donuts with a friend.

August 20: Peachy, shimmery makeup look.

August 21: Wore my black glasses to work for the first time and got told they suited me.

August 22: Strangely satisfying removing chipped nail polish.

August 23: Fish and chips for dinner.

August 24: Felt comfortable driving mum’s car today.

August 25: Watched Unforgotten for the first time. Hooked already!

August 26: Toasted sandwich with cheese, spaghetti and potato – yum.

August 27: Halo looked extra cute today.

August 28: Hug Me is such a cute name for a lipstick!

August 29: First evening sing-a-long of the week. My singer dream will never die.

August 30: Binge watched series one of Unforgotten. Only took 4 hours and 20 minutes.

August 31: Tidied my bedroom.

    I was grateful that my friends and family joined me on a lot of my adventures in August, usually everyone is busy with their own stuff.

    I love your glasses! The black rimmed ones are so perfect on you! It reminds me that I need to go in for my annual eye check up, I thinky eyesight is getting worse and need to up my prescription … :/

      It’s nice to be able to spend time with those that you are close to and it doesn’t need military organisation haha!

      I didn’t know you wore glasses 😯 what style/colour do you like for yourself? Can’t wait to see what you pick!


      • littlebeautyloves says:

        Yeah! I’ve had glasses for a few years but I don’t wear them all the time. I have frames like your black ones but in red which is why I like them so much! I’ll share what I end up picking up for myself for sure. There are a pair I’ve really wanted!

        Do you have contact lenses as well or just glasses? You could always get new lenses in your existing frames if no other pair matches up! Is there an image of you on Instagram or your blog wearing your glasses?


      • littlebeautyloves says:

        I don’t wear contact lenses. My prescription is pretty low so I could get away with not wearing my glasses all the time. I don’t think I’ve ever worn my glasses on social media . Lately, I’m finding that my eye sight has worsened so I have been wearing my glasses more. I should see my eye doctor to get the right prescription. I just need to find some time and do it.

        I think that’s such a great idea to just switch out my lenses so I can continue to wear my frames.

      Aww thank you ☺️ Louisa gets a job in New York but her boyfriend is still living back in The UK. He tries to come over and visit but the first visit he gets sick and the second visit he feels like Louisa is changing into someone different. Louise tries to convince him she is still the same. She gets fired from her job but makes friends with a lady in the building she was living/working in. She decides to open up her own clothing shop and at the end of the book she meets up with Sam again (her boyfriend). x
