What a month, it’s hard to know where to begin! It’s been a juggle of work and spending time with my daughters, but I think we’ve done pretty well and certainly made a lot of memories. The glorious weather didn’t stick around for long into August, did it? No matter, we are pros at grey and rainy British summers now! We’ve taken day trips, had pajama days, been on a mini break to North Wales and so much more.
Without further ado lets get onto the wonderful little things from this month, go on grab a cuppa (or a glass, depending on the time of day..!) and have a read.
Playing Big by Tara Mohr
This book is one of those life changing reads, the kind where you want to underline so much and wish you could just absorb the wisdom via osmosis. It’s a book I will keep coming back to that’s for sure. If your inner critic likes to run the show or you just want guidance on how to make most out of your career then you need this book in your life.
The Party by Elizabeth Day
I actually read a novel! Woo! And this one was devoured in two days. I love literary novels that are character driven but not at the expense of the story, and this one had me feeling like I knew the people, like I was watching the whole thing unfolding. Fantastic. Definitely going to order her other books.
I’ve also stumbled across Morgan Harper Nichols and her beautiful quotes via Pinterest.
We had a mini break in North Wales where of course we just had to have another trip to Surf Snowdonia. It’s a wave garden which generates the perfect waves for learners and pros, my kids and husband all had lessons and were fab. You can read about our stay there last year – Learning to surf at Surf Snowdonia
Netflix – Orange Is The New Black (the latest season and now I’m starting from the beginning again with my husband!)
Prime – Unreal (the latest season is on fire!)
TV – Bodyguard (BBC1 Sunday 9pm) From the team behind Line of Duty, so you know it’s going to be unmissable TV
Films – The Incredibles 2, A Quiet Place
There’s a country lane that runs behind our estate with hedges full of brambles, we picked a huge tubful of blackberries, perfect for homemade blackberry and apple crumble, yum.
You know me, I’m rubbish when it comes to getting outfit shots.
I’ve lived in my Birkenstocks and my yellow mac, and of course various outfits too!
What I’m really excited for though is the change from summer clothes to autumn (don’t hate me). I love the darker colours, the layers, boots and tights, so I’ve been excitedly pinning ideas
I love a good podcast, and I’ve managed to put together a list of all my favourites and also recommend episodes to listen to.

Moses Sumney, Doomed – This track is in the last episode of the latest OITNB and it hit me so hard. The scene is incredibly emotive and this song is perfect.
