The August Wrap Up!

Where Have I Been? Life Updates

Since I started this blog in December 2016 I have tried to write something between three and five times a week. These past two weeks, give or take a little, I haven’t put anything on here. I do have a good reason, however. I have had/have Carpal Tunnel in both of my hands which has made it extremely hard to type. It’s still not easy for me to type so I’m not sure how much I’ll be able to put on the blog until this clears up. My goal will be at least two times a week, however. If you are one of the few that reads my blog regularly know that I do appreciate it and I don’t plan to quit writing anytime soon.

My wonderful birthday present from my husband.

Life Updates Continued

August started off with my 25th birthday. I’m very grateful to be able to celebrate another birthday but I’m not exactly where I want to be in life so it was sort of a depressing one. I have so many things to be happy about but there is quite a few issues that I’m dealing with that are going to take either time, money, patience or a miracle to fix. However, my life is pretty wonderful and I’m so very thankful for it. As for my weight loss, well let’s just say I fell off the wagon. I haven’t gained any weight but I also haven’t lost any. I have kept going to the gym on a regular basis so I guess that’s something to be proud of. The rest of my month has been spent working on my house. I’m decluttering, painting and just making general improvements so that has also taken time away from blogging, unfortunately.

My sick kitty.

Binx

Another not so great part of August was my poor kitty, Binx, had a UTI for about two weeks. This lead to two different vet visits, shots, medicine, a blood test and medicated food. None of that was cheap but I adore my animals and will do whatever it takes to make them well. Thankfully, he seems to be feeling much better.

When I need these two to get in the carrier so I can take them somewhere, I can’t force them into it but when it’s just in the floor they fight over who gets to be in it. *eye roll*

 

Reviews: Movies, TV, Makeup and Books

I have so many things to review since I had to take a two week “vacation”. I am caught up on book reviews but I still have so many to be read and I’m doing that just as quickly as possible. As for makeup and skincare, as usual, I always have a ton to tell you about and as soon as I can get to it I will do that. I haven’t really watched too much TV or movies lately but soon I plan to watch some new ones but most of those are for Halloween/fall. As always, if you have any suggestions let me know about them!

They refused to all look at me at the same time so this is what I ended up with, haha!

Thank you!

If you have stuck around through my absence, thank you so much! I’m still planning to put up a blog post everyday in October so I need your suggestions. I mainly need them for books and movies because I’m always looking for new ones to read/watch. I am so excited for fall, which for me starts in September. I hope that your September is even better than your August! If you read all of this, thank you for reading and have a great day!
