Yo, Motivation - Where You At?

Well, it's been a hot minute since I last blogged.

After blogging (mostly) everyday in May, and after having a pretty good upload schedule in July, what the heck happened? 

I don't know - in all honesty - it's been a whirlwind couple of months. 
My motivation for writing is no where to be seen, but I've decided that enough is enough. If I don't start writing now, when will I?

So what is there to catch up on?

We've got about 3(?) One Click boxes to catch up on
We've got 1 Untold Coffee box to catch up on 
We've got 2(maybe 3??) Dog and Hat boxes to catch up on
Also a new sub box - possibly coming soon

And like I say every time - lots of other exciting things coming up. 
Is there anything you want to see on the blog?

So what have I been doing these past couple of months? 


- I had some pretty major surgery

 If you've been following this blog for a while, you'd know that I've been having some health issues over the last year or so - thankfully it went well, and I am now completely out of the woods. (Look out for a full blog post soon) 

(lil spoiler, it involved a lot of drugs, but at least my hair looked cute throughout)

I launched The Coffee Life Co store! 

It was something I wanted to do for a very long time, and I thought what a better time, I was off work for a few more weeks, had all the time in the world - but boy it was a stressful week after a shocking amount of orders (THANK YOU!!!)

I went on holiday!! 
Like an actual mini break away, where I didn't think about work or blogging or anything (maybe that's where I lost my motivation? Who knows) 

I kayaked in the sea (it was a good idea at the time, but in hindsight kayaking in the ocean on morphine was quite irresponsible, but look HOW HAPPY I LOOK)

We went out for a lovely scenic dinner

We managed to get a nice photo - shocking

And it went downhill quite fast, turns out drinking on morphine gets you absolutely wasted.

I then went back to work - for about 2 days, and then decided to re-join my family on holiday (and almost gave both my mother and father a heart attack as I broke into their caravan awning to surprise them) 

We got an actual family photo!! A nice one!! 

and a acceptably frame-able photo of Kat and I 

Little moo and I had a great time on the swings

and I made some banging coffee in the middle of a field - winner winner

I went to Birmingham!

I've been a bit obsessed with Ru Pauls Drag Race recently (what can I say, I had a lot of free time, and I'm very late to the game on this one) 

So I ended up going to DXP#19 in Birmingham

I also drank delicious coffee at Quarter Horse Coffee 

Moving onto August 

Went to Brighton Pride for the weekend (and didn't die!!)

Classically we took it as a road-trip opportunity - and after a two hour car journey we arrived, pitched up and prepared our livers for the weekend ahead 

At least I got my new profile picture for the next year.

Turns out when drinking, I'm quite photogenic

Just looking like an absolute Ford enthusiast

Apparently I told Kat she was my best friend when drunk and now she just keeps holding that against me, so many regrets there

Found a dinosaur - classic

Safe to say that Pride fully killed us off for the next week - I still don't think I've recovered 

I got a new tattoo!! 

I've wanted an Umalome tattoo for a while now, and when the lovely guy suggested I swapped the top of the lotus for a coffee bean I was like HECK YES.

Last but not least 

Brighton Coffee Festival!! 

After going back to work for about 4 days, I headed back to Brighton for their first ever Coffee Festival - and it was everything - It was such a chill, nice festival (and yes there will be a full blogpost soon!!!)

Playing the "how sleep deprived are you" game 

I don't want to share the few photos I took at the festival, I'll save them so you actually have to read my post about Brighton, but I couldn't not share the traditional selfie that Izzy and I always take at festivals

Miss you already gal

So this unintentionally turned into a little scrapbook of my life for the past few months, but I'm actually kind of living for it - throughout this post I feel like I'm slightly more motivated to write. But we'll see how long that lasts. 

I'll hopefully catch you soon.

(and if there is anything you want to see on the blog in the next couple of months, let me know)
