7 things for July

30 June 2014


Instead of following my usual theme, and finishing each month with an empties or favourites, I thought I'd do something a bit different. Instead of dwelling on everything from the past month, I want to look ahead and simply choose 7 things I want to achieve in July. They don't have to be particularly big things, just small things that will make me happy.


1. Create some more DIY projects
Following on from that, I'd love to make more DIY projects to put in my room. I've got loads of cool ideas from YouTube videos and I really want to try them out and maybe even post tutorials of my own.

2. See a sunrise and a sunset
Pretty simple task, but something I really want to do. I occasionally see the sunset through my bedroom window, but I'd love the idea of camping outside and getting to see the sunrise and set :)


3. Re-decorate my room
This sounds like a pretty big task, but it's something that'll keep me busy. My bedroom's looked the same for about 6 years and it's pretty boring now and since it's where I spend most of my time, I want it to look pretty and fresh. I aspire for one of those pretty tumblr-worthy bedrooms..

4.Take more photos
At christmas I got my lomography camera, which I'm in love with, yet I never really find a chance to use it. I want to spend my summer taking pictures to capture my memories so I can look back on them when I'm old!

5. Go outside more
Don't get me wrong, it's not like I never leave the house, I do, I just don't want to spend so much time cooped up in my room. I want to go to the beach and stuff, and leave the familiarity of my 4 bedroom walls..

6. Draw more
Although I have quite a bit of free-time in the evenings, I never seem to find the time to get around to drawing/doodling which is something I used to do frequently. Since I'm taking art, I want to improve, and to improve I need to practise!

7. Start YouTube
Again, this is a pretty big thing, contrary to what I said at the start, but it's something I'm really excited for. When I started this blog I wasn't really ready, and sometimes I'm not even sure I'm ready now, but it's now or never and I have some really cute ideas that I think would look better on video than in words.



  1. These are great / things to do in the summer. And if you want to do than you should. Noone is keeping you from doing it so go ahead and start. Hope you have fun. Wish to check out my blog.


    1. Thanks, I can't wait for summer, I want to try accomplish all of these things soon xox

  2. This is amazing! I really need to re-decorate my room as well. Starting YouTube would be pretty rad too x


    1. Awh thank you! I've just ordered new bedding and curtains so I'm well on the way to achieving my tumblr-worthy bedroom! Looking forward to Youtube too but I'm a bit scared! xox
