  8. It’s always nice to reflect on the little things! They make a big difference :). Congratulations on finding a summer job! It’s always good to get the experience wherever possible. (Also nice to make money too!)

    Yum! Baking is so relaxing and glad you’ve been making some delish treats!

    Always find time to relax whenever you can! Social media will always be there – so no need to be up to date all the time :). Self-care is so important! Thanks for sharing some of your faves!

  10. I also love having hard copies of books over E-readers, I had the same problem when on my year abroad. I worked around in by taking 3/4 at a time and then swapping them over when I visited home. I also got my boyfriend to bring me a couple out when he came to visit and swapped them that way.

    Lovely post, thankyou for sharing x

  12. I love this post! I have always wanted to start a bullet journal, I love the layout of the spread in the picture. How are you finding working in this heat? I always find myself staring out the window wishing I was sunbathing in the garden. A year in Madrid sounds amazing, when do you leave?

  14. Lovely post, congrats on the summer job! Awesome news 🙂 I’m a big believer in having one day a week to just wind down and relax, I know what it’s like to be busy all the time. Single mum, blogger, wedding photographer… the list goes on! So that one day a week is always a God-Send attached to a glass of wine, a take away and a bath. Great post! xx

    • Thank you! Ah I couldn’t agree more, honestly couldn’t think of a better way to unwind – it’s definitely needed after a week of working! Thanks for reading x

  15. Oh my I just tried to comment but my internet is bummy so fingers crossed that this goes through! First why does your food look so yummy! Those Blondies look ABSOLUTELY scrumptious and I’m sat here totes jelly and mad with myself for look at food posts this late as I can’t get any food lol. Also congrats on finding a Summer job! I love reflective posts like these where you get to be filled in or can sit and reminisce yourself. Also a SM detox is needed at times so take a break, you’ll thank yourself later…Great post! 😀 <3
