Insta-Lately // August 2016


It's time to share my past month through the medium of my instagram feed - if you fancy following along then my insta is @belsmay13 :)


The weather at the start of the month was truly awful - so I spent my rest day after my night shifts in bed - and I’m not even sorry about it!



I found these anthropologie-esque cups in TK Maxx - they’re perfect for my morning caffeine fix!



After my next lot of nights I decided that I couldn’t spend my rest day netflix-ing! So I decided to be productive - apparently that meant just playing with all my pretty stationery - oops!



Our last hydrangea bloomed in the garden - we have a few of these plants dotted around our garden and they bloom consecutively over the spring/summer - it’s so sad to see the last one bloom because that means that it’s almost the end of the summer!


 I really loved how the photos for this postcame out - although I did commit and instagram aesthetic sin and put marble on marble for them!



The weather has been crazy this month - it has been horrible and rainy for a few days and then we get a couple of days of blazing hot sunshine! I definitely tried to make the most of it by sitting in the garden and reading in the sun as much as I could!


I was on core days at work for the last two weeks of the month (aka in the lab 9-5:30 every weekday) and it’s absolutely exhausting me - I couldn't wait to crawl into bed each evening! I’ve not been on core days since June so it has been a bit of a culture shock having to work 5 days in a row! (When I’m on nights I work 2 consecutive nights and then we get 3 days off!)



After working for the first 3 weekends of the month I made sure to enjoy a lazy Sunday last week! Breakfast in bed  - complete with a naughty chocolate cereal treat and some quality time catching up on my blog reads!


This one is actually me typing up this post! I blame the return of Great British Bake Off for the reason why this post is going up so late! I almost completely forgot that I needed to blog today!

So that was August, I can’t believe that’s the last month of summer gone! Here’s hoping for an Indian Summer...

If I Had a Bar Cart


if i had a bar cart


I *love* a good bar cart - I spend far too much time than I care to admit to just browsing through all of the bar cart decor and styling ideas on pinterest - I'm obsessed!


I definitely think it's high time that I started to sort out my own bar cart - there's an alcove in our lounge that's just begging for a bar cart to be put there! Hence, I've been adding stuff to my bar cart wishlist for a little while now and I *think* I've finally decided on my 'theme' - lots of white and silver, a few pops of colour from some fun drinks napkins and flowers (fake obvs, because I can't keep anything alive for more than a couple of days!) and some novelty items of course - my mason jar shot glasses will be pride of place, and I think that as a scientist this flask cocktail shaker is a necessity!
