10 things that made me happy in August

me and my dog

August was one of the hardest months for me ever. My boyfriend left on the 20th for his study abroad year in California, while I’m stuck here waiting to go back to London for university, knowing that I won’t enjoy it as much as I would with him. As I mentioned in my Life Lately post, we tried to make the most of the time we had left together by doing lots of fun things over the summer, so I’ve decided to start doing a monthly ’10 things that made me happy’ series to remind myself that life isn’t always so bleak!

  1. Boardmasters festival – Bastille and Rudimental were great! ?
  2. My boyfriend’s 20th birthday ?
  3. Seeing American Idiot in the West End – one of the best shows I’ve ever seen!
  4. Talking to my best friend from school, who is currently studying in Canada
  5. Getting a pink Elvis album on vinyl ?
  6. Making cupcakes with my little brothers ?
  7. Winning a goodie bag of Barry M makeup ??
  8. Reaching 400 Bloglovin’ followers & 550 Twitter followers ?
  9. Cute fluffy unicorn pyjamas ?
  10. The #gbloggers sleepover! ?

  • Keep your chin up through your boyfriend’s year abroad; it will be hard but you will appreciate your time with him so much more. I have recently graduated from university so now my boyfriend and I are long distance and it really makes your relationship so much stronger. The things you did in August sounded like so much fun xo

    This is such a good post. Try to keep yourself busy so you don’t miss your boyfriend as much and he’ll be back before you know it 🙂

    • Thank-you! I’m definitely trying to keep busy, but I’m still missing him a lot.

    It’s always good to remind ourselves of what makes us happy and what has made us happy. Great post, can’t wait to see next months.

    Your dog is so cute ! I know how you feel, when I was at uni I left my bf in my home town and we barely saw each other at all. But once Uni was over and I was back home, we made up for lost time. I sometimes joke we should actually be attached at the hip. It’ll be okay x
