July tends to be my favourite month of the year, partially because it's the month that my birthday falls in. The sun is stronger, summer breaks begin and food is fresher. This month I spent my time lounging around in the sun, eating a lot of avocados, drinking a lot of coffee (as I do every month) and smoothies, caught up on some reading, flew to Marrakech for a break away, turned 22, caught up with friends and felt good for the most of it. July does not disappoint me, it is a safe time of year. As it ends I begin to start looking forward to autumnal months but for August I intend to soak up what the British summer will give to prolong this good month so that the warmth will stay within me until next year,

Over the years when I'm in a book store and decide to impulse buy a book it tends to disappoint me, I decided to give The List of My Desires by
Jocelyne is a 40-something woman with a simple life that features a husband, children, a job and hobbies. She begins to examine her life, from her teenage years, to times of heartache and more recent days. It's very ordinary but the small pleasures like her work and weekends away keep her satisfied. After winning the lottery she begins to write a list of her desires, starting small with things she would like for the house and a new coat. They begin to grow while keeping her winnings a secret. It leads you the question if money can bring good changes to your life or if it is a devil disguised from what is truly important. 

I found that this book really made me think about my own desires and I'm sure we all have those dreams of what we would do if we came into some money no matter how substantial it is. A house, a car, new wardrobe, a holiday along with many other things. It also reminds you that you make the life you have, events will take place and will change your life but we should remember to find and enjoy the great things we have.

There comes a time every once in a while when I need to take a step back from some things. Take a few days or even weeks to let the dust settle so that I can come back ready to drive fiercely through the road. Time is the greatest healer, one of the life lessons I have learnt this past year. As my birthday is approaching I tend to be more reflective and because of that I've decided to write down some of my thoughts. Maybe next year I will look back and have an idea of what I was doing, thinking and feeling. 


cooking - Halloumi, roasted vegetables with pitta bread and homous.

drinking - Smoothies, coffee and water.

wondering - Where I'll be a year from now. 
 
wanting - August 8th.

playing - Lana Del Rey's Ultraviolence and The Fault in Our Stars soundtrack.

wishing - Goodness for me and everyone close to me.

liking - The warm July English weather, not too hot and not too cold.

reading - The Truth by Michael Palin, nearly finished and I'm still struggling to get into it, but never mind. 
 
hoping - For a delightful break away in Morocco next week.

wearing - Skirts, for the first time ever they are my favourite thing to wear.

thinking - Miffy, missing you so much still.

feeling - Eager, precarious and zealous.
