My Monthly Agenda / August

I've been debating whether to read Fifty Shades Of Grey or not, but my curiosity is starting to actually annoy me. A couple of customers have come in to the cafe during their lunch breaks and been reading it, and the more its in my face the more I want to read it. My Mother read it a couple of weeks ago & I asked her what it was about and she blushed a little and told me I wouldn't like it. I still haven't quite finished my read for July, so I better get onto that before I cure my curiosity! Another thing that seems to be everywhere lately is macaroons. The cafes across the road from my flat have all started to sell them, so the urge to bake my own batch will be my Sunday afternoon plans with Luke this weekend. 

Putting together these little collages has already helped me to get organised and prioritise what I need, and focus on what I want rather than impulse buying. On last month's 'Need' agenda I listed a juicer, and last week I actually bought one! I've been saying to myself for the better part of this year that I wanted to invest in a juicer and because I committed to the idea it happened! (I'm less excited about my 'Need' purchase this month, because lets face it, who gets excited over a step ladder?)I also opened an actual novel, which is something I haven't done for quite some time, and cooked a meal I've been meaning to try. The only thing from last month's agenda that wasn't achieved was buying the dress that I listed for my July 'Want'. That won't be happening this month because even though I do want it, I really need some hemp hand cream from The Body Shop. Heres to hoping I get everything covered this month!


  1. great post.

  2. this is a great idea. except i think i 'need' black booties when what i really probably 'need' is to go to the grocery store! haha. oops. but those macaroons looks yummy on another point

  3. Ahh the macaroon invasion!! I've been wanting to try my hand at baking them for sometime but still haven't got around to it.. if you give them a crack please post about it and then I can gage if it's beyond my abilities or not!

    I caved into my own curiosity and purchased 50 Shades of Grey a few weeks ago... I couldn't even get to the 'good' stuff because the writing leading up to it was so appalling. Honestly, the worst thing I've ever tried to read. That being said, everyone else seems to love it, so maybe you will too?

  4. I'm definitely going to read that book before I go back to school in a couple weeks. I've heard nothing but awesome things about it and I know that it's extremely racy. haha Sounds good to me! :)

  5. I do not want to read that book... Not after seeing a line from the book that says “His pointer finger circled my puckered love cave. “Are you ready for this?” he mewled, smirking at me like a mother hamster about to eat her three-legged young.”

    Ew. Double Ew. How does that turn people on?

    Have a laugh at this interpretation of the book:

    1. OH MY GOSH! That is so super gross/disgusting! Sexy talk should never involve the words 'mother', 'hamster' or 'pointer finger'. Just no.

  6. Love these posts! I've heard so much about 50 Shades of Grey that I really don't want to read it now haha

  7. Good luck with Macaroons, that is something I've always wanted to try but never really got around to it! And I adore the Hemp collection from the Body Shop, the lip balm is my favourite!

  8. Hahahaha! I've read about half of that book and when my mum asked me what is was like I told her that SHE wouldn't like it, lol. Truth be told I just didn't like the idea of my mother reading such a dirty book, so my guess is that your mother doesn't want you to know what a dirty book she has been reading. :P It's not the most realistic or well-written book in the world, but once you get over that it's quite an enjoyable read. :)

    Good luck with baking those macaroons (I have a recipe for them but they look WAY too hard so I've never bothered to try) and have a great week lovely!



Thanks for stopping by!
