Welcome to No Books Allowed. This is a new monthly feature for me hosted by Raimy from Readaraptor, which is used to discuss things things in life which aren't connected to books. This post can be used to talk about days out, music, TV, video games, films etc for all those book bloggers out there who do occasionally do stuff other than read and go to book events!
July is always my favourite month of the year. I always have loads going on during it but it's always all brilliant stuff.
School broke up yesterday. I cannot tell you how much I needed term to be over. It's been a weird year for me having had the best part of a term off but it was still manic. I now have six weeks to cram in all the things I haven't had the chance to do yet this year like sorting out the house, catching up on my reading pile and eating lots of icecream on the beach.
I spent a week this month in Bude on a school trip. It was exhausting but all kinds of fabulous as the kids I went with were fab and we got to go surfing and canoeing. The weather was glorious and it was nice to be able to spend all day in shorts and t-shirt in the sun. Highlights including eating lots of Cornish icecream and spending the afternoon in the sea on the hottest day of the year.
Out and about
Other than Bude I've not really made the most of getting out and about yet this month. I did get to go to the theatre to see Birdsong and been out for dinner with my lovely friend Lauren but that's about it. Hoping to make up for it later in the month when I'll be off to London to do a Harry Potter walking tour and stay with my equally lovely friend Sarah.
What I've been buying
I decided to try out a Miss Glossybox subscription. I'm rubbish with makeup etc and I thought it'd be a nice way to try out new things. I must say I really do like it and am getting to try out some new products. The only shame is it is only sent out every other month.
Watching and Listening
I must admit I haven't had the chance to do much of either. I got given a copy of Harry Potter Lego for the PS3 as a present and it has pretty much taken over!
