August kinda happened, and I hardly noticed. I'm not too sure if it's been a really long month, or a really quick month, different days I'd give a different response I think.
This month started off with me thinking I'd have a whole month ahead of me with nothing on the cards, and ended with me in an office in Wembley interning for an international brand. Oh, how quickly things can change!
Overall it was a good month, and one that was mainly focused on my career and future (rather than fun), as I spent pretty much alllll of it interning, but hey ho, that's what summers are about when you're a fashion student, right?
As always here's my Instagram diary of all the happenings of the last 4 weeks. If you fancy following my day to day adventures, my user name is @holljc. I'ma be heading back to uni in the next few weeks, so there'll be lots of snaps of all of those unayy goings on I'm sure!
Tea and cake, the perfect combination for a gloomy Monday / What I'd do to be back by the sea, with sand between my toes, the wind in my hair and a cocktail in hand / Yesterdays trip to the The Pudding Pantry definitely ended up being 'an eyes bigger than my stomach' moment / When you're trying to hold on to the last bits of summer on a very grey and gloomy day. Its a good job I've never claimed to be good at dressing weather appropriate / PJ's, tea and a good book! The perfect combination. Becoming by Laura Jane Williams is a book that is so unbelievably yet wonderfully honest and raw. The parts of this book that I have connected with have touched my heart in ways I wasn't sure a book or words could. Laura, some of your words have been magic to my soul and I'm so grateful to have picked your fabulous yet real book up! To anyone feeling at all lost, confused or lonely consider picking Becoming up it may just help you along a little, as it has done me / /

And there we have it, August wrapped up and finished! Another month of 2016 over.
I'm very very much looking forward to catching up on much needed sleep in September (getting up at 6:30 every day for a month ain't so fun) although the beginning of dissertation prep isn't filling me with as much excitement!
