August is a month where I discovered a few new favourites, but mostly days out and making memories were my highlights. So here’s a look at what I loved.
I’ve mentioned Vegan Nights in quite a few favourites posts, but it’s such a fun event with good food and a great atmosphere.
My Birthday Cake
As we was away for my actual birthday, I had my cake early. My partner got this amazing flamingo cake from Flavourtown in London and not only was it beautiful, but it was delicious too.
Birthday Break in Greece
My partner took me to Kefalonia for my birthday and it’s an incredibly beautiful and green island. We stayed at a luxury retreat with our own private pool and I didn’t want to leave!
My 29th Birthday
I celebrated my 29th birthday in Greece and had a brilliant day. We went horse riding, to the beach and had a private dinner on our room terrace.
Whilst at university I went to yoga classes weekly, but pretty much stopped going once the centre shut down.
Lately I’ve rediscovered my love for yoga or more specifically; yin and hatha forms. We practised outdoors yoga in Greece and have tried a few different classes since we’ve been back in London.
Not only is it good for toning, but it helps stretch out muscles and is good for slowing down and calming your body and mind.
Captain Fantastic Film
Our retreat in Greece had an outdoor cinema and we went to see Captain Fantastic, which we’d never heard of. Well it’s certainly a unique and out there film, but we loved it!
A quick description that doesn’t give too much away is ‘circumstances force a family to reintegrate into society, after living in isolation for a decade’. Give it a watch, it’s thought provoking.
La La Land-City of Stars Song
Even though this song is a sad turning point in the film, I adore it. Me and my partner listen to this song often whilst stargazing and for us it’s a happy song.
Emily & Fin Old Havana Dress
I bought my first Emily & Fin dress at the start of the summer and adore it, so I treated myself to another design. I love how intricate the details are and that it’s a standout, colourful dress.
So that’s all of my August favourites. Let me know what you’ve been loving lately.
