Another month done… complete…finito. I can’t quite believe that we are now in September! Autumn is fast approaching but to be honest I’m ok with that. I love Autumn. Any way, August was a very busy month for me I had two get-aways and lots happened in between so let’s get started…
∴ I do gel nails on my self and to clients but I have always wanted to be able to do gel extensions as I love a fake nail. I bought all the stuff, did lots of reading & watched hundreds of tutorials on good old YouTube and taught my self how to do gel extensions. So I’m pretty proud of that.
∴ We went to Byron Burger with some friends which was nice, I had never been to a Byron Burger.
∴ I locked the keys in my flat *GULP*… Oh this did not go down well with the BF. I thought he had the keys, he thought I had the keys, you know one of those situations. Turns out neither of us had the keys. The car keys are attached to this set of keys that were locked in the flat and we had places to be that we needed to get to. We got in eventually, but yeah not good for the stress levels!
∴ My best friend and her partner had their house-warming party which was really lovely, they have a garden so we all had a BBQ, drinks and chilled.
∴ One of my friends organised an afternoon tea for charity. Luckily her aunt has a lovely house with a lake so the tea party was held there with all old vintage tea sets, a cute bike that had ice cream in & we played games. It was a really lovely day and such a nice idea to do.
∴ BRIGHTON BABY – one of my favourite places in the world. We went to Brighton for a long weekend with some friends, we actually booked it through Air B’n’B, which was my first time using them, the apartment we stayed in was so lovely and was based in Hove. (we had a few issues with the owner but I wont go on to that here.) We got up to so much in Brighton, We visited the marina which was beautiful and had really nice Brazilian food, visited a cocktail bar called Twisted Lemon which you should check defo check out, ate Boho gelato which was delicious, saw Brighton’s nudist beach, visited the lanes, did some shopping it would be rude not too as there is SO many shops, had dinner at a lovely Argentinian restaurant, the couple that we went with are getting married next year and the groom bought his wedding ring which was nice to be there for. Brighton is such a fun place you should definitely visit if you haven’t!
∴ Had a couple of meals out with family and friends
∴ It was my BF’s birthday in August and that’s part of the reason we went to Brighton was to celebrate it. He got given a homemade Star Wars cake which was amazing and we decorated the apartment in Brighton for him.
∴ I purchased a really old chest of drawers to do up and re-sell as a little project for myself.
∴ On the bank holiday weekend we went to Somerset with some friends. This is another thing we booked through Air B’n’B. The cottage we stayed in was amazing and so peaceful. The cottage had a BBQ so for 2 nights we had a BBQ and chilled in the garden, we visited a little fishing village called Beer which is in Devon, this is somewhere I went to a lot as a child and a teenager. We did a long walk through the countryside and along the coast which was extremely hilly and hard work but fun all at once. Had lunch in a village pub, dipped our feet in the sea, I played Scrabble for the first time, we visited a vineyard and did some wine tasting, had a picnic, did lots of chilling out, had a lovely meal at a village pub near to where we were staying. On the way home from Somerset we decided to stop in Bournemouth which was a great idea as it was so hot on this day, we pitched up on the beach and laid there majority of the day, had fish & chips on the beach, paddled in the sea & in true British style we all got burnt! We ended the trip with a Wagamamas, which is one of my fave things to eat ever! It was such a relaxing happy weekend!
∴ Ok, this one may seem a little sad but I could not mention Celebrity Big Brother, when that show comes on I’m addicted, I don’t care who is in it ill be watching it till the end!
I hope you all had a lovely August and got up to loads of fun! I also hope you have a wonderul September.
Thansks for reading as always 🙂
