New Years Resolutions - June Update

so it's halfway through the year, which is a little scary, where has it gone?! in all honesty, i've not been up to much exciting this month - if you've been following the blog, or follow me on twitter then you'll know that i started my internship at the beginning of the month, so that's been taking up all of my time! the weekends go by super quick and i now realise how much i took them for granted before. events-wise, it's been a couple of friends birthdays this month. first was my bestest chum Mollie's birthday so we went out for a little dinner date, just the two of us, and then went to the pub with her and her family the following evening for a little get together. then last weekend we headed to Camden for a night out for a couple of the boys birthdays (which I have an OOTD post to pop up soon!) Then the Saturday just gone, I took Mum to Wembley to the Robbie Williams & Olly Murs tour which we got tickets for back in February for her birthday! I'll pop a couple of pictures from the day (and very teensy, tiny Robbie & Olly) below, and there's also a couple of videos on my Instagram which you can find here if you so wish!

Wembley #OOTD and #FOTD

as for July, i don't have many plans as of yet, unless you'd like to include a day-trip to Ikea to hunt down some beauty storage! I'm off to a Blogger event on Wednesday with Ellie (Ellie's Ramblings) so will pop up a post if i have enough to blabber on about! i also get my second year uni results tomorrow too, which i have my fingers crossed for and i'm sure i'll tweet about it at some point. and with that, on with June...

1. Try some Soap & Glory products
i actually picked up another S&G 'A Great Kisser' Lipbalm this month in the Peach flavour, which I now love more than the coconut! 

2. Try some Lush products
nothingg... i haven't even been near a Lush this month!

3. Do 20 sit ups every morning and every night
maybe we were being a little over optimistic here... i literally don't have the time in the mornings, and i'm too tired at night (i have a two hour commute)!

4. ALWAYS walk to work. unless it's raining.
well seeing as i'm working in London now, this is near on impossible, but i do have a mile walk from where i park to the tube station twice a day, and this is good enough for me! especially if you've seen the hill from Epping station...

5. Eat more healthily
no... i get so peckish at work. and i've just had four burgers in four days... whoops.

6. Try and save £1000 in my savings for car/internship DONE!
i did it the other month, so can i technically cross it off the list now?!

7. Don't attempt a spending ban
we can very much call this a success! 

8. Book a holiday DONE!
booked two last month so this can now be crossed off the list too! 

9. Purchase a brush cleaner for  make-up brushes
i've still not purchased a 'proper' one, but like i said before, home-made cleaners are doing me good!

10. Jar project
i don't think i've put anything in this at all this month.. i just forget. 

11. Watch as many films as possible off my list of 'Films I Should Have Seen But Haven't'
just one this month i think - The Bucket List. i did watch Despicable Me the other weekend on TV though and liked it so much that I've already seen the second one. and HELLO 1D3D trailer!!!?!?!?!?!? girls, honestly, cinema screen sized one direction is the best thing i've ever seen - i almost enjoyed the trailer more than the film i'd gone to see...
