This Round of The Best Of We Heart It Posts are inspired by a little bit of happiness, some inner courage, and a love for inspiring quotes.
Following on from I said in part 1 , which you can go and have a read of HERE. October was just one of those months that really was filled with so many amazing things. I had so many great opportunities, experienced so many new things, and make loads of new memories that I will always treasure forever. But ultimately the best part of the whole month was how loved and treasured I felt. There was a few events in October such as my birthday party and a trip to Paris, which you can read about in yesterdays post, that really made me realise what great friends I have, and what amazing people I have surrounding me. Personally, I think this is such a massive part of being truly happy, and this quote that I have written on my chalkboard this week, really reminds me of lucky I really am. “Do what makes you happy, be with those who make you smile, and laugh as much as you breathe”- Pinterest <3
October was also a great month for this ‘little blog’, although now I see it as more of a toddler, as I’ve said on my About page.
The reason why I get so overwhelmed and proud of this blog is because when I started out, I never intended to get over 17,000 views, have over a thousand followers, or even work with any brands. The whole point of this blog was just for me to be able to express my individuality and creativity, I suppose I just never thought about how big my audience would become, or how far I would progress. It still seems to me like I’m living one big dream, and when I’m getting over 160 views in one day from countries all over the world, and getting over 1,000 views in just one month, life just does not seem real. There’s no doubt in my mind that I love what I do, but it is such an overwhelming experience, and somehow I don’t think I will ever get over that.
Are there any things that you’re really proud of?
My Absolute Favourite
I think that my absolute favourite from this month’s favourites, has to be “Always do what you’re afraid to do”. I really don’t know why I’m loving such deep life quotes at the moment, but I think it’s the fact that I have my GCSE’s coming up, I have to find a sixth form or college to go to, and really university is only round the corner. I feel like life is going so quick and there is so many prospects of my future that I’m excited about, but that really scare me. That’s supposed to be good, but I need all these quotes to really reassure me that it is.
I hope you have enjoyed this round of the best of we heart it posts. You can go and have a read of part 1 and the rest of the series HERE.
This round of The Best Of We Heart It posts are inspired by a visit to Paris, memories of my childhood, and a love for beautiful pictures.
Okay, I’m just going to put it out there, October was definitely the shining star in a very dark sky of a year so far. It brought so many amazing experiences and moments for me, that seemed like I had been waiting a life time for. There was no particular reason that everything seemed to come at once, but I suppose that’s just life, you go from having nothing to do, to having everything come all at once.
The first amazing thing that happened throughout October, by far, had to be my birthday party. I had been planning and wanting a party for my 16th for over a year, and because of family circumstances I nearly thought that I wouldn’t be able to have one. However, life was kind to me and really sorted itself out, and I hosted the most fun and needed party EVER! My whole aim for the party was really to just make sure everyone enjoyed themselves and had a great time, which I really hope everyone did. But the main thing was, that I absolutely loved just spending time with all my friends and dancing the night away. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever danced so much in my life.
The second thing that happened throughout October had to be my school trip to Paris. It had been planned and booked for over a year, and the excitement and anticipation was way to much to even think about a couple of months ago. However, it soon came around, and it was one of the best experience’s of my life. I wasn’t just about where we visited and what we did, although that was good too, but it was really about the amazing people that went on the trip, and how many more of them I can now call my friends. It was just one of those trips I will never ever forget, but I’m so glad that I won’t.
How was your October, did you make any new life long memories?
My Absolute Favourite
Overall, I think that My favourite has to be the picture that is a view of Paris through a love heart shaped hole cut in a bush. It just reminds me so much of my trip, and even looking at the Eiffel tower now, I can not believe that I went right to the top of it and kind of conquered my fear of lifts.
I also love how this picture really represents how Paris is the city of love, hence the love heart shape, and to be honest, I would love to go back there when I’m older with my boyfriend/partner/husband because it is such a magical and romantic city. I suppose you could say that it definitely lives up to it’s name.
I hope that you have enjoyed part 1 of October’s The Best Of We Heart It. You can go and have a read of the rest of the series HERE. Also I’m sorry that it’s so late into November, but it’s better late than never, right?
THIS ROUND OF THE BEST OF WE HEART IT POSTS ARE INSPIRED BY my rejuvenated zest for life, a desire for colder months, and a couple of birthday wishes.
September brought the time to finally bring all the elements for my 16th birthday party together, the invitations, the favors and ultimately the cake. Who can have a birthday without cake? It was something that i had been carefully planning for months, and I had spent a lot of time and effort into really making sure that every thing was exactly how i wanted it. However, that definitely made the pressure pile on when it was time to hand out all the invitations, and find out what the verdict was going to be about the party. The thing is, when you host a party, you need people to be excited about it and want to come, because that creates interest around the whole idea and encourages other people.
Luckily, I have some amazing friends that really supported both me and the party, and I think overall we all had an amazing night. The music was at full volume, the drinks were flowing, and the cakes were ready to be eaten. It went exactly how I planned it to go, even though I had so many worries and fears about the whole thing. It actually worked out so well, and I shouldn’t of worried about anything.
Was your September filled with any birthday joy?
Regarding all things we heart it, last month was far from very productive or active, and that’s why i feel like I’ve again had to dig into the depths of my hearts from September, to create this second post. I just didn’t seem to heart that many quotes last month. Hopefully you still enjoy these few inspiring quotes, and I will be making it my mission to heart some amazing quotes this month.
My Absolute Favourite
I think ultimately my favourite quote from this month would have to be, “do what makes you happy and be done with all the rest”. I don’t really know why i love this quote so much, but i think its just the fact that it really promotes that you should just do the things that make you happy, and that your the most important thing. I think this is a quote that I need in my life in the next couple of weeks, as well as just it being my most favourite quote over all.
I hope that you’ve enjoyed this round of The Best Of We Heart It posts, and feel inspired to go and have a good old browse on We Heart It. I only have another three of these posts to do before I start a brand new monthly series for next year.
You can go and have a read of all the series so far HERE.
THIS ROUND OF THE BEST OF WE HEART IT POSTS ARE INSPIRED BY my constant love for all things fashion, the urge for warm, autumnal baths, and a bit of feminism.
September was just one of those months that seemed to go by so quickly, one day it was the first of September and we were all celebrating about the fact that we had to head back to work and school, and the next minute, it was the 30th of September, and my mind was grinding away at me about writing these posts. So far this year I’ve been super consistent with all my We heart it posts, and even though this set may be late, I wanted to still power through and not let myself down by missing a month out.
As I previously mentioned, end of august/start of September is the time when we all head back to school and begin school life again. However this time I had to really knuckle down right from the start of the year, as I’m going to be doing my GCSE’s in this school year and i need to work my arse off to get the grades that i want. Obviously, I’ve you been through the whole process of your final GCSE year, or are going through it now, you will know how much homework you get, and how much is expected of you in every subject. So therefore, I made it my mission to try and stay organised and on stop of everything that I need to do in school, on here and generally in life, so i can then get things done more effectively without getting all stressed out about things. As you probably all know, i get overwhelmed so easily, so hopefully this will help me keep focused and be calm and collected Rachel, not super stressed out and stupid Rachel.
Because of all the amount of work I had throughout the month of September, We Heart it definitely got put on the back burner. So, when I went to create this post, i had a lot less to choose from than I usually do, and I think that’s why i found it hard to find a few themes that run through my pictures this time, to create the little inspired by… subheading, that i have going on at the start of these monthly posts. However, there’s still some really cute and unique pictures that are featuring in this post that I love, and I hope that you do too.
My Absolute Favourite
I think my favourite would have to be the picture on the right hand side, and one down, with the Sony camera. I love how this picture has the camera kind of faded in the background and the main focus in the picture is the lense and the skyline that’s in it. It just seems to represent so much hope and it;s almost like a little insight through a camera lense. i love the way this has been taken and edited, and definitely needs to feature in my photography inspiration pinterest board.
I hope you have enjoyed this round of pictures, and feel inspired to go and find some cute and unique pictures on we heart it.You can cach up on all the previous posts HERE.
THIS ROUND OF THE BEST OF WE HEART IT POSTS ARE INSPIRED BY SOAKING UP THE LAST OF THE SUMMER SUN, A LOVE FOR SOMETHING RETRO, AND A TOUCH OF PARISIAN CHIC.
August really was one of those months where I enjoyed every single day, and everyday I had something new, exciting and interesting to do, that i could enjoy with the people I love the most. Although, i was actually on school holiday through-out most of August, I still managed to be super busy and find something to do with all the end-less amount of time that i had.
Another great thing that the summer month brought, was a serious amount of time to just do whatever I wanted. I think it’s so important in life to be able to have your own time and to just do things that you really want to do. I know that so many people always talk about how essential having “me” time is, but I just think that it’s the best way to re-cooperate and be YOU again.
One of the things that I loved to do whilst I was having a bit of “me” time, was to just have a quick flick through we heart it and have a nosey at all the really cute pictures and quotes that they have on there. If you’ve been a reader of rachelspick for a long time, then you will know that I’m one of those annoying quote freaks, who is always throwing a quote into every situation.
What quotes where they you ask? Well here’s a little run down of my favourite quotes that I’ve hearted throughout the month of August.
My Absolute Favourite
Obviously, I love all the quotes that I’ve picked out, because this post is “the best of…..” quotes that I have hearted. However, I think that i would have t0 choose the picture on the top right hand side, again, that says “Reminder: you have a great smile, use it.” I love everything about this quote, from the floral background, that looks very retro and kitch, to the actual quote, and just how lovely and motivational it is. I’m trying to be less of a negative person, and really trying to embrace being more positive and kind, so this a great quote to go with that.
