10 things that made me happy in August 2015

me and my dog

August quite a difficult month. My boyfriend left for his study abroad year in California, and I’m waiting to go back to London for university. 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. Seeing American Idiot in the West End – one of the best shows I’ve ever seen!
  3. Talking to my best friend from school, who is currently studying in Canada.
  4. Getting a pink Elvis album on vinyl. Did you know I literally worship Elvis?
  5. Making cupcakes with my little brothers. I love to bake with them when I’m home.
  6. Winning a goodie bag of Barry M makeup!
  7. Reaching 400 Bloglovin’ followers & 550 Twitter followers.
  8. Cute fluffy unicorn pyjamas!
  9. The #gbloggers Twitter sleepover was so much fun!
  10. Spending time in nature before I head back to London.

All the best,
- Emily

  1. 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

  2. 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 🙂

  3. 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
