July's Greatest Hits!

July was kind of an epic month both for me and for this here little blog. Lots happened and I stepped up my blogging game to actually document a fair bit of it. Welcome to a new Owl Girl segment, in which I have a mini freak-out about all the positive moments of the month. This one will be a short one since I left it so late!

July's memorable moment

Oslo opera joy

The moment from July that I will remember for a long time is the feeling of standing on top of the opera house in Oslo, as a storm closed in over the fjords! I blogged about it here!

July's Instagram moments

I got these incredible jellies (my first pair in approaching twenty years!!) from Sun Jellies and I am totally in love with them. I love gold and I love sparkles but I kind of want every other colour of jellies now. Stay tuned for an outfit post with these babies involved! Other Instagram highlights involve some gorgeous iced coffee at Tapped and Packed, an incongruous "gentlemen" sign, and a bit of blurry cat action. Follow me on Instagram for more happyfuntimes!

Songs on repeat in July

This July I have been obsessed with Calexico, particularly their cover of Alone Again Or by Love, although I have pretty much had their entire discography on repeat for weeks now! I've also listened to Be Okay by Oh Honey and Can't Pretend by Tom Odell more times than I can count this month. Be Okay is super happy and the Tom Odell song is very mournful, just so you're warned. Emotional whiplash is on its way. Click through to watch YouTube videos of each song!

Blogs I've loved this month

I couldn't write this post without a shout out to Mimmi from Muted Mornings. She runs this wonderful, whimsical blog with plenty of light and bright photographs of gorgeous food and landscapes. She's also a really kind person! Another special mention to Julie from Lines Her Eyes, who did a great post called 'Things that got me through July' recently. Both of these lovely ladies nominated me for a Liebster award and I'm so happy! Check out their blogs! My final blog recommendation for the month is my dear friend Zoe who runs a great blog called Floral Zoe. She's a megababe and you're going to LOVE her.

Sorry this is a tiny short post, but be prepared for these "favourites" posts to become a regular thing, and I'll be talking about favourite products, favourite songs and the most magical moments of each month!

Did anything lovely happen to you in July? Please tell me all about it!
