Month in Review / August 2015

Saturday, 29 August 2015

This month...
  • I won prizes in two different giveaways!  A review of the fabulous brushes I got from Lily Lolo is to come next month after I've tested them out a bit more.
  • I visited the Sensational Butterflies and Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2014 exhibitions at the Natural History Museum and took lots of pretty butterfly photos.
  • Went on a nice date night with the other half.
  • We started moving all of our stuff over to our new flat, which we're moving into on the 31st.  Incidentally, we're not going to have internet for about a month because Sky is stupid.
Post of the month: Butterfly photos from Sensational Butterflies!

Films & TV...
  • Chris and I started watching Parks & Recreation again.  We got to the end of season two and then ran out of episodes on Amazon Prime, but they've since added season three!
  • We had a bad movie night and watched Troll and Troll 2.  The second one was hilariously bad and actually enjoyable, the first was just plain bad.
  • Finally got around to watching the second season of The 100 and I'm pretty glad I kept with it because it passed the awkward CW teen drama in a post-apocalypse scenario to become a really awesome sci-fi show.
  • Kate told me to watch Sense8 so I did and I'm still reeling from how awesome it was.
  • I watched the season premier of Fear the Walking Dead - super excited for the rest of this series.
Edible things...
  • Made an amazing veggie shepherd's pie.
  • We got takeout pizza and I ordered my first pizza without cheese.  Honestly, I didn't even really miss it! (Until the next day when I felt super low and was craving something greasy and bad for me...)
  • Baked my first vegan brownies - they were freaking delicious.
  • Tried my first shop bought vegan cupcakes from Lola's Cupcakes in London.
  • Had a nice meal out with an amazing dessert of poached pear in violet sauce, which basically tasted like a pear boiled in parma violets!
Worth a read...

Now that August is finally over, autumn should start slowly creeping in, although I seem to remember it still being hot as balls in October last year.  Still, can't wait!

How has your month been?


  1. It sounds like you've had a really good month, I hope the move went well! I'm looking forward to your Lily Lolo review, I just picked up some of their products myself and I'll definitely be going back for more :) xx


    1. Thanks! We got there in the end, thankfully we were only moving a couple of streets away but it ended up taking 9 trips in our little car. :/ Now we're just doing the last bits of tidying up at the old place and using the internet while we can! I hope you like their products, I know they've converted me to mineral make up. :)
