Blimey is June done already? Not gonna lie it's been a complete whirlwind month. Unless you've been hiding under a rock (or have been avoiding my Twitter/Instagram feeds!) then you'll know I've been off travelling solo at the beginning of the month to New York! I can quite honestly say it was the one of the coolest things I've ever done and I ticked so many things off my life-long bucket list. I've started up a little series about my trip on the blog - done two posts already with a few more to go! - so if you fancy reliving the experience with me be sure to keep an eye out in the next few weeks for more.
Aside from this whole travelling thing I also finished my entire University degree and am now in semi-graduate limbo until the official cap-n-gown ceremony mid-July. It's crazy to think that's me done for formal education, potentially for life too, but I'm excited to see what's ahead. For now I'm working a temp role and getting back on this blogging thing properly when I get a minute. My brain's been buzzing with ideas about new layout designs, platform switches, streamlining content, ad/pr plans and even url changes here and I had the itch for a big overhaul all the way through my third year at Uni.
So I guess it's all change and delving into the deep end of uncertainty. I'm trying to convince my inner control freak/worrier that this is exciting, maybe you guys can give me a hand too :P

Becca's brilliant post on University and whether it's right for you. Definitely a must read for all of you going through A-Levels and even those who are feeling a little lost after finishing their first year at Uni too!

My lovely friends Erin and Skye have launched their new blog, Eight & Sixteen, and I want all of these film/TV quote banners strung up in my bedroom please ^_^ - also please follow them, I want them to become the Brit versions of A Beautiful Mess ;)
~
Tom's (Daydream in Blue) really thoughtful post on the beauty of simplicity.

Two of my favourite Youtubers, Sanne and Estee, collaborated and listed off their favourite 'Easy Reads'. I can definitely back them up with recommending Never Let Me Go, We Were Liars, TFIOS (duh), Paper Towns and The Virgin Suicides, as fantastic books to get into this Summer!

Getting a little holiday-sick (is that a thing?) seeing Carrie's recent post and stunning photos of Brooklyn, and Emma's round up of her trip to NYC. Take me back!

Also getting major vacation envy reading Gem's post about her trip to Chicago...am starting to think this should be next on my travel bucket list!

What a month! Looking forward to seeing all of the exciting plans you have for the blog :)
If only we could become the Brit ABM, everything they've achieved is amazing and so inspirational! x
