The time of our lives #14

Could someone please explain to me where the last 8 months have gone? How the fudge is it September, and why am I'm back at college now? 
Before I carry on with today's post, I thought I'd let you guys know about some exciting things that're happening over here in Holl JC land. 
Some of you may have noticed a few changes have happened in the last 24 hours, and this is because, a week or so ago I won a competition ran by Melanie from My Billie Designs. (blog, here) The competition was to win one of her stunning pre-made blog templates that could be completely customised to the colours etc, that you wanted. I entered the competition thinking I'd have no chance, but low and behold I got an email from Melanie saying I'd won! 
Hence the changes in blog! I love love love how it looks at the moment, but things aren't 100% finished yet, so please bare-with if a few things look a little bit off for a few days! Once everything is completed I'm thinking about doing a post about it all, so let me know if that's something you'd be interested in reading!   

But back to today's post:
August has zoomed past in the blink of an eye, and today I'm bringing you a peak into the adventures I had through the eyes of my instagram lens! I apologise that this is such a long photo heavy post, but as I was away when I would've done the first half of this post, today I'm covering the whole of August!

Getting myself organised with this Emma Bridgewater planner! I had a rather cute ladybird sitting on my leg!/So many months worth of photographs and memories. Got a funny feeling they won't all fit in my album!/Getting ready for our holiday tomorrow! These are my companions for the flight!/Wearing my new shirt as everything else is packed!/The sunset from the plane...
Found the sea eventually, and caught it with the pretty sunset again too!/ The lovely view from our balcony/Lovely afternoon by the pool/Meet my new friend, Pennie the Parrot!/There was an actual full sized pelican in one of the Cafes we walked past this morning! Never been so shocked/Me with the pink trees, outside the wonderful restaurant we ate at that evening...
By the sea on our last day, with my fish tail plait!/The last purchase of my holiday, picked it up on the plane/Face of the day as my foundation is the wrong colour/At pizza hut for lunch with mum, before we go to the cinema/At the cinema with mum!/Brought a pretty new nail polish...
This months Crafty Creatives box just arrived, such an awesome theme!/My new ring from my holiday matches my new nail polish!/Sky view, the day's outfit!/Definitely jumped on the band waggon with this one!/Hand my ends done, red it is!/This kind of box makes me very happy!
Jewelry making is so much fun! Thank you to Crafty Creatives for providing so many beautiful things!/An action shot of me drinking my tea at the BBQ the evening before!/Nothing better than a whippy ice cream in a waffle cone on a sunny day!/The beautiful cakes we brought! One each and one left over (for me) the pros of being an only child/#wiwt/Nothing like a good cup of tea...
New notebooks are always nice!/Loved spending the day with my best friend Larly, today!/It's official me and my family are going to Walt Disney World Florida next summer!/Today's face/Sunday afternoons are for eating biscuits...

Hope you enjoyed that ladies and gents, and again I apologise for how photo heavy it was!  If you want to follow me and keep up to date with all my antics, or not-so-antics as I'm back at college now, then 'holljc' is the user you're looking for!

Love and cuddles
God bless
