Month in Photographs: July 2014

Sunday, August 03, 2014
Well July has been a very random month! I have had a blog makeover which I love, I have been shopping, I've had a lot of items sent to me for review this month, meeting up with friends a LOT, visiting the Manchester Police Museum, winning competitions, I became a Sewlomax Ambassador, I became a Sigma affiliate, Patisserie Valerie with Yasmin, contact lens check up, my twitter account was hacked, friends birthdays, I am now an author for the website Hype & Genius and Bitchy Online - finally, I had some blood tests this month and I had a ultrasound scan of my you do. 

Firstly, I had some blood tests taken this month as my doctor thought I had PCOS and today (26th July) I had an ultrasound scan of my ovaries which I was super scared about but it was perfectly fine. The scanner person said at the time that I do not have cysts on my ovaries (TMI) but I still have higher than normal testosterone levels (all women have testosterone in them). I have to wait and see what my GP says about the results but it will probably be after my holiday. 

Anyway, I have also been shopping this month, I didn't think that I bought too much stuff but looking through the photos to create my 'july collective haul' post, I realised that a lot of money has been spent...oops was on sale and it is mostly for my holiday (justified). I have also received so many items from brands and PR's to review this month and I had a not very nice experience with a PR person this week which left me quite insulted!

I am now a Sigma affiliate (I received an amazing gift for joining, post coming soon) and I was chosen as a Sewlomax ambassador which is super exciting and I have a code for my readers to use (AMBASSADOR10). I am also a writer for the website Hype & Genius now as well as a beauty writer for the website Bitchy Online. Speaking of more writing, I have started writing my own novel/book! I don't know if it will amount to anything at all but I might as well try! Also I had an internship interview this month, I am still waiting to hear back. 

I have been loving watching sport this month with the World Cup 2014 (which was amazing and I am not a massive football fan), Wimbledon and now the Commonwealth Games - England have done so well already! 

Favourite TV and Youtube of July: QI, River Cottage and the Youtubers I have been loving include, Julia Graf, MakeupTIA and Rachael Jade Annear

The last bit of news is that I am going on holiday next month which will include my 22nd birthday (I'm old!). I'm going away from the 9th until the 23rd August - I will have some posts scheduled (hopefully that will work out) and I have a birthday giveaway on the 15th August, which is my birthday! If you email me between the 9th - 23rd I will get back to you on the 24th August. 

I hope everyone had a great month and stay tuned for some exciting review posts and a giveaway on my birthday (15th August)!
