June Roundup and July Bucket List

It’s that time of the month again for the June Roundup and July Bucket list combined. As you know from last months post that I’m combining the two together. I love to look back over my month of blogging and also my day to day life and incorporate what I need to do into my bucket list.
I suppose the way of looking at it is what do I want to achieve in July aand how can I improve on June?

June Roundup and July Bucket List - blogging and day to day

 

June Roundup

I have had a whirlwind of a month for June. Time has just disappeared. Baby girl can now roll onto her tummy. Which you can read about it in her 4 Month Baby Review She is growing very fast.

We have finally got onto the Baby Sensory classes that we have been waiting for. The first class was not the best experience which you can read about in my post The Mummy Clique but thankfully now we are 3 classes in it has been much better for the both of us. The theme tomorrow is Magic Fariy Garden which we are looking forward to.

My favourite post for June was Will my baby’s eye’s change colour? well an update on that post is that they are still blue at 5 months old!
I have been a bit slack in my reading this month and only had time to read Following Evan by Elida May which was a brilliant book full of mystery and also sadness. I was lucky enough to be a part of the book tour as well.

I’ve been lucky enough to work with many brands over this past month doing lots of reviews and hosting giveaways. It has made my day to day life exciting while I’m on maternity leave as I have kept myself amused by taking pictures of my feet for Chattyfeet socks and also tasting the most divine chocolate from Choc affair for my review as well as doing lots of other things!

It really has been hectic!

Well I haven’t done any blog maintenance this month as I have been focusing my attention on my media kit. It’s a working progress at the moment and I hope to have it ready soon. It’s the first time I have attempted any sort of designing before and I’m loving it. I am slowly working out all the features on Canva which is the programme I’m using and it’s ace!

Baby girl attended her first BBQ which was great fun!

I have weeded and barked half of the garden and as you can see from my youtube video there is a mountain to go!

    It’s good to have goals I think, otherwise you never know where you’re heading. And so satisfying to tick things off a list. Thanks for linking to #PoCoLo and sorry it’s taken me a while to get here x

    Your garden is looking spectacular!!! Thanks so much for sharing <3 #KCACOLS

    Congrats on your figures increasing that’s great! I really need to pay more attention to this too. I also keep meaning to get round to doing a media kit but I never do. I keeps getting pushed to the back of my to do list #kcacols

    I’ve been so impressed with your blog and all you have done with it. For instance the reviews you were asked to do. It is my dream to get asked to do a review. I’m also excited to hear your babies eyes are still blue. It’s always fun to see what is going to stick. I’m hoping mines red hair doesn’t fade. #KCACOLS #TribalLove

      Thankyou. The media Kit is a little on the backburner at the minute while I have a blog redesign! xx

    Congrats on the stats increase! I'm so addicted to Canva too – it's getting to the points where my nightmare is my design not saving properly, lol. #KCACOLS

    Looks like you are really improving a lot blogging wise! Congratulations! I so love to read some books as I have few on here but I just cant find time and maybe that is my goal this July. Just read one book! #pocolo

    busy busy and the garden is looking lovely. sounds like you have some determined goals in place for the next month – good luck.

  13. July 3, 2016 / 8:17 am

    busy, busy! I found weaning quite enjoyable, though it feels like you are constantly feeding them. Good luck x #KCACOLS

  14. July 2, 2016 / 10:43 pm

    Sounds like a busy month! I discovered Canva a couple of months ago and I love it! I hope you have a dab July!

  15. July 2, 2016 / 10:27 pm

    I cn't remember what age baby eyes change. I'm sure by 5 months those of mine who were going to loss their blue eyes had done so. #KCACOLS

    I really feel you on the mummy clique stuff, I read your post and that's the reason I didn't do baby groups with my daughter plus we moved when she was almost a year and I couldn't face dealing with the cliquey mums in our new town! I love the July bucket list idea, you have amazing content and stats so I wish you luck with contacting brands!!

  17. July 1, 2016 / 7:37 am

    I think it's a really great concept to add a forward looking bucket list for next month 🙂

  18. July 1, 2016 / 7:14 am

    You have been busy. I think one of my goals this month is to try and get my followers & views up. Good luck with the media kit xx
