The 20th of the month is my favourite day. Why? ‘Cause it’s my payday. It’s the one day of the month where my bank account looks temporarily pretty and I think about buying all the things. It’s honestly my favourite day of the month. The months in my head run from the 20th – 20th so, what am I up to this month?
The end of August/September is a pretty hectic month for The Geek and I. I’ve got boring things going on like my car is due it’s MOT (pray for Paulo everyone!) and my car insurance renewal is due. I’ve also got some exciting things happening! We’re back off to Lincoln one weekend for his Mum’s birthday. I haven’t been to Lincoln in a while so I’m looking forward to it! I’ve found his Mum a really cute present that I want myself so I hope she likes it! I’m also off to #mychocbloggers event in London in September, which I’m super excited for. We’re making sugar free chocolate which I’m very intrigued about. The Geek says it’s like fireworks without the gunpowder but hey ho! I’m pretty sure he’ll still stuff his face with them. So, what do I want this month? This is what’s on August’s payday wishlist!
This month I want a bit of a mix of everything. Rufus is in desperate need of a thicker and more sensible collar as we’re due to start dog training again on Thursday. The Geek’s mum got him a gorgeous red polka dot one when he was small but it’s a little too thin for him now. I’ve not found one that’s as beautiful as the one she bought until I came across this beauty. It’s not practical at all but I can just imagine him wearing it at Christmas and he’d look so smart!
I’ve gone on and on about my love for Gossip Girl and how Blair Waldorf is my queen. I’m at the end of season five at the moment. Being honest, I don’t know how I’m going to cope when it ends. My friend and I have already planned to watch the last few episodes together to get ourselves through it! I stumbled across this the other day and The Geek would HATE this with a passion (he hates Queen B, the only character he likes is Monkey). I do believe if I had this on my bedside table and looked at it every morning, I would be happier. Blair is my spirit animal. I’ve decided this print is happening and there’s nothing the Geek can do about it!
I’m probably the only person in the world who’s ready to see the autumn months and welcome the colder weather. I’m not a summer bird, especially as I’ve not been away this year. I’m quite glad to see the back of summer! One thing I love about autumn is being to wear chunky boots and three quarter sleeved dresses again. I’m obsessed with anything stripey at the moment. These little beauties are soon going to be in my wardrobe!
Tore from Atinymew managed to save the beauty world on Saturday night with her post on her £1 MAC Velvet Teddy dupe. Velvet Teddy is a beautiful nude shade and would be the perfect shade for work or a casual night out. I’m not massively into my make up and never been able to justify MACs prices, so this £1 gem is a bank account saver. Genuinely cannot wait to try this badboy out!
Lastly, Flamingo Candles are taking the candle world by storm. They look wonderful with the little flamingo design and I know one of my friends would love them! All the candles are made with soy wax which makes them much friendlier to burn and last around fifty hours each. Not bad for the twelve pound price tag! I’m yet to try one of their candles but I believe this one would smell wonderful and look gorgeous in my living room. Cheesecake is my favourite dessert, after a cheeseboard obviously, and I can imagine it smell divine. I’ve got my eyes on their Earl Grey and Cucumber candle too!
What are you guys up to this month? Anything exciting at all?
