July has been a bit of a funny one. I feel like I have worked really hard this month and not really had much time for myself. There were a couple of people on holiday at work so I was covering for them, plus some really busy events.
But on the other side, the weather has been really good recently, and I even have a little bit of a tan going on to prove it. It was also Matthews birthday which was lovely, although we both had colds which was a bit of a downer.
Finally, the last few days of July we spent in Whitby, North Yorkshire on a mini holiday. Matthews parents went away there for a week, so we joined them last Tuesday for a few days. I had never been, but I am now in love and can see why so many people love it there. More on that trip to come soon!
Onto the favourites.
We went on a little holiday to Whitby, and although there is a full post on its way, I thought I would just put this little gem up in this section. The North Yorkshire town is just too pretty!
This isn't a produce in the sense of a beauty item, like I would normally feature here. But it is something that has changed my life. I finally went to get my eyes tested this month and just like I guessed, I need glasses. And I needed them ASAP.
The lady in the opticians helped me choose my perfect pair, and I have had nothing but compliments. I love them, and I am loving being able to see the TV again without squinting. Ahh, the simple things.
Hmm, it seems as though coffee is becoming a regular occurrence for this section of my favourites.
This month was Matthews birthday, and for one of this presents I ordered him a coffee machine. After a little research I decided on a Tassimo machine, and well, I certainly haven't regretted it. The pods are slightly on the pricey side, which means we are limiting the amount of coffee we are drinking but boy, they are yummy.
It is also really nice to have the house smell of coffee too!
You can't go to the seaside and not play on the 2p machines. Surely that illegal.
We had so much fun in the arcades over the last week. We are even now proud owners of a minion and a wolf teddy. Plus, we both have slightly lighter purses after spending way too much time glued to the different games they have in there. I am sure that I will never learn that you never win on those games.
Although I did beat Matthew at Mario Kart - just saying.
