Reflecting on June

At the start of June I got back from Alicante, you can check out what I got up to on my holiday here and here. I can’t believe I’ve been back a whole month, I’m still having holiday blues and already planning my next getaway. Not quite as exotic but hopefully a couple of days down in Brighton. Me and Dom have wanted to go to Brighton for so long and we keep saying we will go but never got around to booking something which sounds silly because it’s only a few hours away. Well we have finally set a date and booked a hotel. I can’t wait to visit this place as everyone keeps mentioning how pretty and lovely it is.

I attended my second Blogger event which was absolutely lovely day spent with the nicest girls! I can’t wait to get more events booked and meet some more bloggers!
I’ve been awful at reading books this year, I didn’t even read any while I was away, I think I took one and only read a few pages.  For my Birthday Dom got me Emotional Agility by Susan David which has been on my reading list for quite some time, so I started reading that towards the end of June, something I hope to finish in July.

Not including this post I published three blog posts in June, which is more than previous months but not as much as I planned. July should be a better month, I’m trying to get ideas going and doing lots of planning to get back into posting content more regularly. Not just random topics but pieces of writing I’m really proud of.

As for TV series, I’m watching way too many and I have to keep swapping from each one. I started from the beginning of season 7 of Pretty Little Liars, I waited so long for the new episodes to come out that I completely forgot what happened so decided to go back to the start to recap. I’ve finally finished PLL and although I’m a little sad it’s all over and we know who AD is (omg) I’m also glad it’s one less series I have to stay up-to-date on.
Orange is the new black is something I watched years ago, when it first started. I definitely saw the first two or three series and then I stopped watching it for a while and now they’ve bought out season 5 I decided to get back into it and start from season 4. I’m also watching Season 3 of Izombie, which is my all time favourite show, I’m watching this slowly as I really don’t want it to end.
Gilmore Girls is something I’m struggling to get through, I think I’m on season 3 out of 6. Me and Dom started watching New Girl, from the very beginning, it has 6 seasons and we are approaching the end of season 1. Please don’t ask how I’m ever going to get through this many series when I work full time, blog and spend my weekends with Dom who will only watch New Girl and none of the others.

In June I posted 14 photos to my Instagram, definitely an improvement as I used to only post a couple of times a month. All my images were from my holiday because they were all cute and colourful! My Instagram is growing much faster recently and I’m enjoying filling my page with more pictures as well as supporting and engaging with more bloggers.

Only in the last week have I got back into exercising, before my holiday I had a really good routine going and was doing so well but the break definitely made it harder to get back into! I’ve started again and I’m hoping to carry this on and really work hard to see a difference in what I’m eating and toning my body!

My Stats progress for June

Twitter:          Gained 256 followers – Now on 2,303

Instagram:    Gained 135 followers – Now on 864

Bloglovin:     Gained 27 – Now on 270

These aren’t crazy figures but I am super proud of how my social channels have grown this month, especially Instagram and Bloglovin as these are the hardest to grow on and my numbers weren’t moving for quite a while!

Overall June has been a good month, I’ve been very content with life and I’m excited to see what July brings. I still don’t understand how it’s July, it’s scaring me a little, I feel like Christmas is just around the corner and I’m not ready for that yet, let me enjoy 2017 a little more slowly please.

I’d love to hear how June was for you and what you got up too!

    Such a good month for you! I loved seeing your holiday pictures. I too watched PLL and me and my boyfriend love GG it’s so hard finding the time when the weather is so nice in the summer and you just want to be out! I think we’ll end up watching more in the autumn when it’s acceptable to snuggle on the sofa.

    Congrats on your stats lovely – that’s amazing! I’m totally over PLL to be honest, I’m so sad it’s over but so disappointed with the ending! Also can we talk about that outfit pic?! You look insane!

    I’m really sad about PLL being over, but like you I’m also glad it’s one less show I have to keep up with. I’ve been kind of busy lately. lol

    You are doing well with your Twitter and Instagram following. I’ve had my instagram account for 3 years and have 380 followers, and I’ve had my Twitter for ten years now and have 664 followers there. Although Insta and Facebook are mainly the only social media I’m most active on these days.

      Just wanted to add that I just went to your instagram and it’s really nice! I’m surprised you don’t have thousands of followers, to be honest. I followed you! (isthatvodka is my username)

    I love PLL and OITNB. I’m sad PLL is over too but definitely agree it’s one less show to keep up on. Well done on your stats growth btw, there is lots of follow threads on twitter right now that are helpful when trying to go twitter, Insta and Bloglovin followings ☺️ X
