July Wrap Up

July Wrap Up itsjustabbsxo

Well hello there my lovelies; welcome to August!

Oh, how I love that we’re slowly but surely making our way into the autumnal months. July was yet another confusing month for me; I feel like this year has just been a huge roller-coaster (whilst I do love a good roller-coaster, I wish this one would take a break and chill!).

Netflix… I have been absolutely loving the recently added section on Netflix this month – such great shows/films are now available!

Kane and I started off the month with a new horror film, we watched ‘Look Away’. This was such a weird horror film, in fact I don’t think I would even class it as a horror. More like a thriller. The main girl in the film has a secret twin that seems to be stuck behind a mirror; no one can see her except the main character. She is a bit of bitch and causes pain and trouble to the people around her. It is such a hard film to explain so I will leave you with this… watch it!! Even though it wasn’t what I expected, I enjoyed watching it – I wish the ending was a bit better though.

As well as this, they have put on the entire series of Glee onto Netflix. I am so beyond happy that this is on Netflix; I have been watching it all month and am now on Season 5! It just goes way too quick 😦 I can’t help but get super emotional when Finn sings… ugh and the goosebumps I get when Rachel sings. (P.S: I still dislike Quinn just as much as I did when I first watched it)

So last month I told you I had signed up for my degree and I was really happy about it… well, I made a mistake. I am 100% confident that marketing is not what I want to do. My heart isn’t in it, I can’t see myself doing it for the rest of my life. Should I really pay a lot of money for something my heart isn’t into? So, I cancelled it. And that brings me to now; I am working on me. I am working on finding myself a path to follow and that’s the way it is going to be for the time being.

For around a year now I have been going through something that, originally, I thought was nothing, however it seems to just be getting worse. I have no control over how I feel. One minute I am overly happy and then I am a crying mess. Sometimes I feel like I am sinking and screaming, and no one notices and other times I feel I can’t get out of my bed. I don’t know what’s happening, I know it isn’t just hormones because my mood can change so quickly, and I have no control. I get angry so quickly over nothing and I end up taking it out on my family and those closest to me. I hate it. I finally opened up to Kane about it – I felt this huge weight come off my shoulders. He was great, he just listened and gave me his advice. It felt so good to finally tell him how I have been feeling.

I think I need to find myself a hobby again; I need to find my love for makeup and creating beautiful master pieces on my eyes. I need to fall back in love with it. I find that I can achieve this by buying myself a bunch of new makeup that I haven’t tried before. I have a huge basket on my beauty bay account and am now just counting down the weeks for my birthday so I can give it to my family! Makeup used to make me feel so confident and happy; I would spend hours in front of my mirror creating new looks and taking 1000000 photos (just to never post a single one!). It was my way of getting my creativity out. I need that back; I want that back.

As well as makeup; I also need to throw myself into workouts and healthy eating. Once I start trying to make a difference to how I look, it will help the way I feel. Going for a run or even a walk releases endorphins into your body which make you feel good and positive; it also helps you to get a great night’s sleep!

  1. I’m so sorry you’ve been feeling so down but I hope that August is an amazing month for you because you deserve it. It’s great that you’re wanting to work on yourself and looking after your health. I’m also rewatching glee and loving it. I cried so much rewatching the last episode when they sang don’t stop believing and Will Came back. His decision to choose his passion and love is so inspirational. If you ever need a friend to chat to about things or even about makeup then DM me, my Twitter is @allthingsalexx_.

  2. I’m so sorry to hear you’ve been feeling down recently, but talking really does help as you said! Ever since I started working out and eating healthy, I feel 10x better mentally and physically, so best of luck hitting your goals this month! I’ve been spending this summer before my final year of uni rekindling my love for some of my old hobbies; cooking, drawing, painting, it just feels so good being creative again. Have a fab month! X
