Now first off, I have to admit that the title of this post is completely and utterly melodramatic, and actually the majority of August was pretty sunny and lovely! But yanno, British summer time is never perfect ey!
As always at the end of a long month I bring you another Instagram round up of the things that happened and the adventures that were had! August 2015 was an interesting little thing! I spent the majority of it interning down in London, which meant I was exhausted or running around the streets of London at the whim of google maps, 90% of the time!
It's months like August which really make me realise why I love doing these posts, as they remind me of all the things I did, the vast majority of which I'd completely forgotten about, aha! I joke, kinda!
August 2015 saw a trip to the sea, a Booktube-a-thon, a launch party, conformation of another internship, an adventure, a good friend, goodbyes, a festival and lots of good food! Overall it was a pretty stellar month, and I really do hope that September will bring just as many great memories!

There we have it summer officially over and autumn has began! Looking back through all my pictures now it seems like I managed to fit so many stereotypically British things into the last month of summer - festivals, the seaside, shopping - you get the gist!
I hope that you all have really great Septembers and they're filled with goodness and love! Oh, and if you're off to uni this month please don't stress or panic, it'll all work out in the end!
