The Update Post | August

so today brings the end of august, and i've actually had a super busy month. i've worked non-stop at by usual job and then the last two weeks have been taken up with going back to intern at Chalk PR after i was asked back to help out before fashion week and i'm now really sad to have left again. i've had the best time this summer working there and wish i could stay in the big working world instead of heading back to uni. i've spent literally every weekend with friends this month and we had the first 21st celebration of the bunch - i am 100% not prepared to leave everyone in a months time for uni! in the couple of spare afternoons i've had, i've squeezed in a Westfield trip with my best friend Mollie, and dinner with Ellie ( and Courtney for Ellie's birthday and a catch up. myself and Ellie, fangirls that we are, were also lucky enough to go to an advance screening of the One Direction movie and we honestly had the best night lusting over Harry Styles gossiping and just having a damn good time!
i'm off to Barcelona with mumma bear on Monday for my 21st which is slowly but surely creeping up on me, and i absolutely cannot wait to get away and have a break! next month is full of holidaying for me, so next months update will be a little more exciting than we're used to!

and with that, resolution time!

1. Try some Soap & Glory products
2. Try some Lush products
3. Do 20 sit ups every morning and every night
is it too late to start after eight months?

4. ALWAYS walk to work. unless it's raining.
i've had a two mile walk to the station and back while i was back up in London which i'm going to class as walking to work... 

5. Eat more healthily
i did okay for a little bit - i have some good days and some bad days. i've discovered the 'MyFitnessPal' app which tracks what you eat which really helps me cut down on junk.

6. Try and save £1000 in my savings for car/internship DONE!

7. Don't attempt a spending ban
of course i haven't!

8. Book a holiday DONE!

9. Purchase a brush cleaner for  make-up brushes

10. Jar project
i've put a whole load of things in this month and even stuff that happened a while ago but never got round to adding. 

11. Watch as many films as possible off my list of 'Films I Should Have Seen But Haven't'
