July Digest

How has your July been? I haven’t even noticed how it started, and barely realised that it ended. It always happens to me when things get weird at work. Nevertheless, I did get up to a few things, and wanted to share them with you. Do you like these types of personal/ lifestyle-y posts? Tell me your thoughts in the comments!

Done

The reason I don’t like summer is I don’t usually get much done, unless said something involves sitting in a cooling body of water or consuming ice-cream by the pint. I want to remedy this rather boring July by throwing in some sort of a fun adventure in August. We’ll see what I come up with.

Book Club

As mentioned previously, my friend and I organised a book club at our work place. Our current read is Tom Sawyer, and our second meeting is some time this month.

Herding readers is a bit like herding cats, especially since all of us have such broad understanding of what makes a great book. Some of us have read a tonne, and others are just starting, so deciding on a book list, finding questions for discussion, and even finding a meeting time and place that would work for all members proves to be rather challenging. Fun, though.

I’m panning a powder, two lip products, a foundation, and an eyeliner. As a bonus I threw in a perfume. The bottle is huge and almost full. If I get through about half of it, I will consider it a success.
