September Favourites

September 2018 is officially coming to a close and it's been an interesting month of self discovery and some new changes in my life. 
I would say favourite of the month would definitely be my new MacBook Pro - that was a very special birthday present from my boyfriend. It has definitely been such a handy gift and gave me the boost to start blogging again. I think all my favourites are probably things I got for my birthday - come to think about it. My second favourite would be my new Canon camera I got from my Dad which was another ode to blogging. I really chose presents that I used as an excuse not to blog such as I hated my camera quality or my laptop didn't work. I can't use those excuses anymore so I'm definitely going to put the hard work into making my blog - a success.

Update and Reading Festival 2018

11 September 2018

Hi - it's been a while since I have blogged, I would like to say I'm back but those words feel too familiar. I love blogging and writing about my day to day life but I have no time. It has been difficult as I work really far from home, tiring commute Monday to Friday and jammed packed weekends. On the 17th August, I turned 25 and like clockwork  - the quartlife crisis came and I thought what have I done significantly with those years. I have really good achievements but I struggled to think what have I really done. I will definitely do things differently and learn from myself rather than others.  I should be a better friend as I know that is a really important factor of my life I tend to neglect.

But this year in August, I went to Reading Festival which was amazing, I went with my boyfriend and absolutely loved it. I saw amazing acts live like Kings of Leon, Wizkid, The Wombats, Dua Lipa, The Kooks and Kendrick Lemar. Reading was definitely an experience I will not forget. I found out the hard way that camping is not easy to even if it was glamping at Pink Moon. My sleep was painful to say the least, it was a great experience from the clean showers to the fresh vegetarian muffins in morning but I would have wanted more sleep. On the topic of food at Reading that was the most expensive part of the festival. I have never seen why a cheeseburger would cost up to 8 pounds - ordinary beef. When people said the same sentiments I didn't understand the extremities. I would say recommend some quick tips for going to a festival.

1. Carry minimal luggage as it is not worth the hassle at alllllll especially if your campsite is far from the main arena.
2. The mud at festivals is real, people do not lie and wellingtons are the best investments.
3. Be prepared for silly mosh pits at every set you attend - they are powerful and will move to the ground by force.
4. If you carry a tent to a festival but don't want to take it home - then recycle it, save someone the hassle of tidying your mess and help the environment at the same time.
5. Bum bags and baby wipes are a key essential and are always there to help.

Thanks for reading - (pun intended)
