July, you’ve been wonderful
Flew by in a blink of an eye, I’m ever so grateful.
Seasonal trends, fast fashion, I don’t encourage it, but I love seeing new products. The trends I’ve been loving from a distance are straw and net bags. They look beautiful in photographs but not enough to convince me to purchase one. I’d rather enjoy the summer feeling through creative Instagram feeds. From my latest purchases, florals are a trend I can get behind, with varying colours, styles and prints, I can’t get enough. Regularly expanding my collection, just yesterday I bought an orange floral blouse from New Look to add to my holiday attire – to say the least, I’m excited.
Music – Single
It was hard to pick my favourite, there were so many beautiful singles I discovered this month. Only one song can get the title this month, that single is 5am by Big Narstie featuring Moelogo. From the instrumental with influences from various genres to the soothing vocals in the chorus and articulate verses, this song appeals to my heart. Especially the second verse, the last line to be exact when the beast sees his princess that’s when the beast is really at peace.
Music – Album
Without a doubt Nasty C wins the title, Strings and Bling was hyped before the release. King featuring A$AP initially made me excited for the album. Once listening to the full body of work, it exceeded my expectations dramatically. Pulling at my heartstrings, Mrs Me is my favourite song. Which side do you relate to? The emotional being revealing stories of the heart (strings) or the ego-driven being glowing against the odds (bling).
So many beautiful bloggers in my life, who to choose, can I say myself? Probably not, so we’ll go with Victoria from InTheFrow. Loving the new layout of her blog, the beautiful imagery as always and the attention-grabbing posts. A style inspiration, always looking fabulous and chic, owning her look with confidence, she’s rocking it. This month I’ve particularly been enjoying her travel pieces, wanderlust has bitten me and I can’t resist.
The one who’s always shining, heart on her sleeve, spilling the tea, yes darlings that’s right it’s Patricia Bright. No matter the topic, each video either entertains or informs about a subject. I especially adore the commentary, her personality shines through the phrases, emotion and realness. Extremely relatable, it’s like watching your friend give advice until reality hits and you remember you’re online and she ain’t in your circle. One day though, hopefully?
It flew by so quickly, what actually happened this month? Well, one thing I can happily say is that there’s a new post coming out August 1st mentioning my favourite moment of the month. Fashion and blogging related, can you guess what it could be? Remember to take time and reflect in order to move forward, embrace all the possibilities, opportunities for greatness. On that note, let me leave you with this live your best life, don’t just survive.
