June Reflection


June?! Where have you gone?! I posted my June Goals what only seems a week ago and now I am already reflecting on them.

What I Achieved:

  1. I cannot believe I have managed to moisturise after every shower?! I think because I have my legs out nearly every day in the summer I have felt more inclined to do this.
  2. Barcelona was just incredible! I hope you enjoyed my post sharing some of the photos too. I have linked it here.
  3. The event with the Hospice was such an incredible success and raised well over £60,000 which is just amazing. I am so proud and honoured to have been a part of the process and on the night itself.
  4. I am enjoying working at NEXT and it is really nice to be back. I do have a lot of hours coming up so I may have to prepare a lot of posts in advance due to me being super hectic in sale prep.
  5. My goal for June was to hit 900 followers after completely smashing my goal of 700 for May. Just the other day I noticed that we have smashed 1000. This is just crazy and I cannot thank you enough. If you have any ideas on how to celebrate on he blog please let me know!
  6. I have also been much more active on Twitter which is a great improvement!

Better Luck Next Time:

  1. I did fail at my running. I didn’t exercise at all while I was in Barcelona and I went once in the heat wave and just could not do it. Now that it is cooler I will attempt this one again!

It was a pretty successful month overall!

How did your June goals go?signature

    Oh wow – you sound like you had a great month! Congratulations on smashing all those goals!xx

    Definitely understandable that you couldn’t run in this heat! Glad to see though that meeting your goals are achievable – makes me want to push toward mine more! 😀

    I agree, June feels like it was such a quick month! Where did the time fly?! Sounds like it was a great month for you, and again congratulations on 1000!

    • July 6, 2017 / 9:25 pm

      Crazy, isn’t it?! Thank you so much! I really appreciate it xx

  4. July 5, 2017 / 5:24 pm

    Awesome work on the goals you did achieve! I also haven’t been running because of heat around here. We’ve had a few cool days but on those days I’ve been busy with other plans! Hopefully we both get to run soon!

      Fingers crossed! I felt really lazy and bad for not managing it this month but I attempted it once and I felt so ill I just couldn’t do it again! Xxx

      • July 6, 2017 / 12:57 am

        Yeah, it’s no good to get hurt while trying to stay fit! Be careful!!

  5. July 5, 2017 / 5:45 pm

    It seems like you had a great month. I can’t believe you have finally managed to moisturize after every shower. No I feel alone in my laziness lol <3

      • July 6, 2017 / 5:07 pm

        It depends on you, hun. Keep doing it. Your skin loves you now 🙂

  6. July 5, 2017 / 7:54 pm

    It’s amazing how you’ve moisturised after every shower, that’s literally unheard of! I loved this post, really enjoyed reading it girl xx

    • July 6, 2017 / 9:26 pm

      Who knows if I will be able to keep to it!! Thank you so much, you’re so sweet xxx

  7. July 5, 2017 / 8:25 pm

    A big yay for moisturising and hitting the 1000 mark. Congratulations! xx

    • July 6, 2017 / 9:26 pm

      I feel like all these congrats on moisturising means I have to keep it up, haha!! Thank you so much lovely xxx

  8. July 5, 2017 / 9:16 pm

    You did amazingly well Ella! Your blog is incredible, and I can’t wait to see what milestones you hit next! Oh gosh, running in heat sounds terrible. I don’t blame you for that. Definitely wait till it’s cooler 😀

    • July 6, 2017 / 9:28 pm

      Thank you so much, you’re always so sweet to me!! All the milestones are for you next! Ahh way too hot right now! xxx

  9. July 5, 2017 / 9:30 pm

    I could never run when it’s so hot outside 😅 loved this post so much! And I always have to moisturize after a shower because I have such dry skin, xx

    • July 6, 2017 / 9:34 pm

      I have really dry skin too! That is why I was determined to follow through with it – I love boiling hot showers which doesn’t help either… xxx

  10. July 6, 2017 / 1:24 am

    It’s too hot for running! I can hardly even get myself to work out in an air-conditioned gym!

    • July 6, 2017 / 9:35 pm

      I had a horrible experience on holiday in Turkey when I was younger when I kind of blacked out/collapsed because there was no air con in the gym and now as soon as it is too hot I just refuse to work out! I don’t use the gym either! xxxx

      • July 7, 2017 / 12:46 am

        Oh no! That’s scary! In the summer I like to work out really early while it’s still cool, otherwise I don’t do it at all! Stay safe!

  11. July 6, 2017 / 11:21 am

    Sounds like a very successful month? How do you find working in retail? I work in retail too and I’m curious lol x

    • July 6, 2017 / 9:45 pm

      Thank you, it definitely feels like it went quite well! I really love some aspects, not a huge fan of others but it comes with the job! I don’t think the pay always reflects the treatment you get from most customers xx (reflecting on the industry as a whole)

      • July 7, 2017 / 4:02 am

        I feel the same. I used to work in a pharmacy and mostly served customers, they were so lovely. The retail job I’m in now isn’t exactly the same lol

        • July 7, 2017 / 5:35 am

          It’s so weird – like I could never imagine having some unwarranted anger against an employee! I know how hard they work! Xxx

          • July 7, 2017 / 8:02 am

            I think that’s what some customer forget or don’t understand lol x

  12. July 6, 2017 / 9:06 pm

    Well done on these! I certainly couldn’t run in heat either! 🙂

    • July 6, 2017 / 10:01 pm

      Thank you so much! I am glad everyone agrees about exercise in the heat!! xxx

  13. July 6, 2017 / 11:49 pm

    Yay for moisturizing daily! I used to not care but ever since I started, now I can’t imagine not moisturizing after showering.
    Great job on all your goals. 🙂

    • July 7, 2017 / 5:37 am

      Really!? You are an inspiration to us all!! Haha, I’m worried about forgetting to do it now when I know how important it is today – especially since I have such dry skin and love very hot baths and showers! Xx

  14. July 7, 2017 / 1:29 am

    Good work on achieving your goals!! There is no way I could commit to running in Barcelona heat, walking is even too much for me haha.

    • July 7, 2017 / 5:36 am

      Thank you so much!! Hahaha exactly, I had a justifiable reason for being a little lazy hehe xx

  15. July 7, 2017 / 8:22 am

    Sounds like a successful month in June ella :). The pictures of barcelona are stunning and I’m glad the hospice event went well. The pictures of the event, looked like a lot of fun and I love that it went towards a great cause. For June, one of my main goals was to exercise, to basically spend a lot of time outdoors, which I successfully have done. Now, I need to work on my blog and sticking to a schedule.

    • July 7, 2017 / 8:14 pm

      Thank you darling! The event was just so much fun, I have had a real come down ever since 🙁 I miss the energy!! I am so glad you achieved your goals – how successful are you?! Pretty big goals too! xx

      • July 7, 2017 / 11:40 pm

        you are welcome 🙂 and one day at a time definitely lol, I appreciate your kind words ella :).

  16. July 11, 2017 / 6:47 pm

    I started a weekday running challenge back in May and it’s been a challenge to keep up with it during the warm months but I’ve been doing it so that’s exciting. It is one of my proudest accomplishments of May and June.
    I think you did great with your goals too. Missing every target except one? I only dream of those kinds of stats 🙂

    • July 13, 2017 / 11:32 am

      That’s amazing, I totally suck in these warmer months – I am going to try again soon! xxx
