May In Review

I thought I hadn’t done much this month, but looking back through my photos it seems that I have! I kicked off May by camping in the Peak District for a weekend with my friends, to celebrate my birthday. That seems like a long time ago now! I stayed at James’ house in County Durham for a while, which is where I did most of the sewing for my newly opened Etsy shop. On the way back home we stopped off in York to see some friends which was awesome, although it was so weird to be back on campus temporarily! Before this week of wintry weather I actually managed some nice country walks, both in Leicestershire and the North East. It’s given me the itch to do more exploring. After sixth form me and a friend spent a day (well, seven hours) walking to Leicester armed with sandwiches and an OS map. If it’s ever sunny again I want to go on a big adventure like that! Oh, and lots of bike rides and picnics.

On Jessthetics I’ve worn some groovy vintage trousers, a gold two piece for my birthday, an awesome plaid coat, and most recently my favourite cerise pink raincoat. I made a lamp from vintage fabric, shared a recipe for my favourite veggie sandwich and interviewed blogger babe Sara from Waiste.

Most importantly, this month I finished the last ever season of Buffy. It was amazing! How does life go on when there’s no new Buffy to watch? Only time will tell…

I’m pretty excited for this June. Not only will it be officially summer, but I have already filled up every weekend with plans. I can’t wait to spend some more quality time travelling and hanging out with my friends!

  1. Jess this all looks like so much fun! I love reading your month round-ups, I think I might try one for this month and see how it goes. Is it bad that I’ve never watched an episode of Buffy…..? xx

  2. Traveling is the best- no wonder you’re looking forward to June! Looks like May was a good month, recaps are such a good way to see all the things you’ve done/accomplished over a month!

  3. Oh that’s awesome that you have an Etsy shop now! I wish I could be disciplined and sew like that. And those castles are just so stunning! I wish I had places to explore like that where I live.

  4. Looks like a good month! Boo, for the final season of Buffy. I wish there were more, but I think they ended it at a good time. I hate it when shows stay on too long and turn bad.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! I love reading your thoughts :)
