I say this every month but doing these round-up posts always makes me realize how quickly time goes by! Summer is slowly ending and I am welcoming cooler weather with open arms. It’s been overall a great month with tons of new posts, an exciting blogging anniversary that I almost forgot, and much more. So here is a round up of the month of August, + an outfit with one of my favorite dresses!
ON THE BLOG
A variety of posts went up this month as always, with everything from the equipment I use for blogging, to the books I would recommend reading and more!
Me-time: This month I’ve really been prioritizing taking time to just relax and focus on myself. As I talked about in my learning time spent enjoyed is not time wasted post, I’ve started seeing time spent doing things I wouldn’t consider “productive” as necessary. I’ve been giving myself more time to read, listen to music, and do anything that betters my mental health. And I can definitely say this will be something I’ll be doing more of.
I can’t believe I almost missed this, but it has been 2 years of me blogging! If you don’t know, I started my blog when I started college but I didn’t actually start posting weekly until August 2016. To say this has been an amazing journey so far would be an understatement, and I want to thank all of you who continually read my posts and for all your kind words! I’m so excited to keep on creating posts you’ll hopefully enjoy and find helpful!
With August also means back to school, and even though I graduated in the spring I’m still taking one more online class. It hasn’t been hard to juggle it with blogging and work, but if all goes to plan I will be taking some other higher education course that I’ll share in a future monthly round-up.
Although blue has always been my favorite color, I’ve come to the realization that red has become a very close second. I love how fun it can be, but depending on the item it can still be timeless and classy. This red dress from ASOS was one of my best purchases this summer! Its flowy shape makes it perfect for hotter days, but I already plan on layering a sweater over it once cooler weather comes.
With cooler weather on my mind, I always seem to wear my glasses more. All of the ones I own are from EyeBuyDirect, and this Juno frame might just be my favorite.
And that is a look at August! I’d love to know how August was for you, and I’m wishing you all the best for September!
