What I've Been Up To:

I didn't realise how busy May had been for me until I started writing this blog post. I've spent many days writing in coffee shops, attempting to get Portfolio together to apply for a Masters, many afternoons catching up with friends while sipping lattes. My friend Kelsey and I have enjoyed our classic coffee and harbourside walks, which makes it's way into my monthly round-up every time, but it's always lovely, and lovely days are worth repeating. I also attended a blogger event this month. The Influencer collective held a speed dating style event, which I was very grateful to have been invited to, I wrote a bit about it in this Instagram caption. I've been trying to read more, so I've managed to squeeze in some time reading on The Downs during those Sunny Days. My friend Jess and I had a day trip to Wild Place. After I told her I'd been a few weeks ago, we decided it was a good idea to go together. I've been building up my fitness again, attempting to get into a good, regular work out routine, so I've made to week 6 of couch to 5k. It's definitely beginning to get more challenging, but I'm really enjoying running and am seeing a huge improvement in my fitness levels. I've been spending my evenings scrapbooking, I enjoy the creative process and it's a nice way to store memories. My friend Madi and I had the cutest little day trip to Bathampton. It was adorable. We took some pictures, wandered along the riverside, dreamt up what it's like to live on a boat and enjoyed a yum pub lunch. I enjoyed a night of drinking and dancing, and as a bonus, I somehow got to skip the hangover the next day. This month I also began Hypnotherapy, so far I'm really enjoying it - but I'll go into more detail of why and my experience with it in a future Youtube video (subscribe to my channel here so you don't miss that). Also this month, I finally tried a doughnut from Pinkmans Bakery, and it did not disappoint.

Watching

Riverdale: Finally, it was a finale Riverdale season 3 this month. It was ridiculous. Yet I liked how the story tied in aspects from Seasons 1 and 2. I thought it was actually quite clever, and despite all of its ridiculousness, I enjoyed watching it.

This Is Us: I started rewatching This Is Us. I didn't feel like I appreciated it enough the first time around and needed to watch it slower. To really take it in. A few episodes in, my Amazon Prime stopped working (it won't play videos?!) so it went from slow to a complete stop.

One Tree Hill: I've started rewatching my first ever fave series. There's something so nostalgic about Lucas Scott and the Tree Hill Ravens to me, and I think it gets better each time I watch the series.
