The Best Of We Heart It- August

The Pictures

Hello Lovelies

 

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 has been one hell of a month for me. It’s been full of shopping, spending time with family and maybe a bit too much eating out. But it’s all been well worth it after the crazy, roller coaster ride of life, that I’ve had over the last 7 months.

 

This year has definitely been one of the most unpredictable years of my life, and has by far been one of the most difficult too. I’ve had to learn and cope with a lot of different issues personally and as a supportive family member. However, I feel like all of these experiences have really molded me into a much better person, and have made me realise a hell of a lot of things about life.

 

Despite all of that,this month has been such a well needed break, and has been a really positive end to a weird and wonderful first half of 2014.  Although I’m still learning and growing as a person, and making a lot of decisions about my life and my future, I’m hoping that the few months we have left of 2014 will not be as testing and difficult as the previous 7, and that I’ll be able to have fun and make some amazing memories with the things I have coming up.

 

What’s this month been like for you???

 

Through August I’ve had a bit of an on, off relationship with We heart it. Not in the sense of loving it then hating it, but more just the fact of going from spending a lot of time on there, “hearting” things, to then not spending any time on there at all. I think that’s why I feel like this month’s picture’s don’t quite seem to all fit together quite as nicely as usual, but I think it just reflects the type of month that I’ve had.

 

So, without further ado, here is my favorite pictures from we heart it throughout the month of August.

 

My Absolute Favourite

I think it will have to be the picture on the top right of a house that is pink and blue. I don’t really know why i like this picture so much,but i think it just really reminds me of Brighton and the streets of colourful houses that they have there. I’ve never been to Brighton, but I’ve seen so many you-tubers talk about it, and a lot of people I know and have spoken to, have said that they have loved going there. So, i think i might have to be paying a visit there soon!

 

I hope you have enjoyed the first part of this month’s the best of we heart it posts. If you’ve loved this post and would like to read more. then you can go and check out all the other posts of the series HERE.

The Best Of We Heart It- July Part 2

The Quotes

Hello Lovelies

 

This round of The Best Of We Heart It posts are inspired by a health kick, a fetish for bright colours, and an eye for something unusual.

 

Following on from what I said in part 1 of this post, which you can go and have a read of HERE, the start of July really wasn’t a great time for me. I just felt so overwhelmed about all this work that I had to do, and how I was going to do it all in the time. I’m generally a person that get’s very overwhelmed very easily, and I think that in future I need to plan out my time more easily, so that I will never get stuck in that situation again! In case you’re wondering, I did manage to get all my work done, eventually, and hopefully all my hard work and stress pays off.

 

However, there was definitely light at the end of the tunnel. As soon as the summer holidays hit, I was on a serious chill out session and I almost felt free again. Obviously, no one forces you to do anything, but if you want to do well and get good results, then you need to do what they ask of you and really knuckle down. However, sometimes you need to think about yourself and your feelings, and put school in second priority.

 

July wasn’t all about stress and being overwhelmed, because during the second part of July I started to enjoy my life again. I spent a lot of time with my family and my mum, just catching up and having some quality time, as well as doing some serious shopping. I also spent time doing a few things that have been on my to-do list for ages, which is always a great thing. Sometimes life is so busy, that simple things that you need to do, get neglected to satisfy things that are on a time schedule.

 

The moral of this story is, that there always has to be a low before a high. This seems to be a quote that is appearing quite a lot in my life lately.

 

Considering all the low parts of my life during July, I needed some magical words of inspiration and encouragement to get me through, which all came from my good old friend We Heart It. So, without further ado, here is my favourite quotes that I “hearted” throughout July.

 

My Absolute Favourite

I think it has to be the second to last quote, “Find joy in the ordinary”! I think the reason why I love this quote is because of how relevant and real it is. After the whole stressful start to July, the small and ordinary things in life made me so happy, and I think it’s really made me evaluate how we all take the simple and ordinary parts of life for granted. Life is an unknown journey, but we need to enjoy every part of it and follow the ride.

 

I hope you’ve enjoyed this month’s round up of my favourite quotes and pictures from we heart it, as well as a little insight into my life during july.

The Best Of We Heart It- July

The Pictures

Hello Lovelies

 

This round of The Best Of We Heart It posts are inspired by a health kick, a fetish for bright colours, and an eye for something unusual.

 

July seemed to bring so much to the life plate. It brought a lot of stress, anxiety and a head that was literally about to explode. But, it also brought so much realisation and joy to life. What I mean by this, is that before the holidays my life totally evolved around school and school work, to the point where I just lost all hope for myself and at times felt like I was falling flat on my face. Obviously, that wasn’t the case and I was still doing academically well, however I just didn’t feel like me anymore, and that really got me! It felt like I was living someone else’s life and almost like it was me trapped in someone else’s body. I’ve never, ever felt like that before, and I honestly never want to again.

 

So, as soon as I got all my controlled assessment’s and exam’s out of the way, I decided that some thing had to change. I had to relax and learn to just believe in myself, and realise that I need to be at my best, to be able to perform to my best. This was really a turning point for me. I started to just enjoy the simple things of being able to just please myself and decide what I wanted to do. Also, I decided that I wanted to have a bit of a healthy eating kick and really try to cut out some of my bad eating habits. I don’t have a bad diet but I definitely have a sweet tooth weakness.

 

What did July bring for you??

 

During July, I actually didn’t spend that much time on We Heart it. I think it was because of how generally busy life was, and also the app has been playing up for a long time, and it frequently put me off going and spending some time on there. However, the app has now been updated and is so much better. It’s a lot more organised and easier to “heart” things on the go. Although, I didn’t actually go onto we heart it that much during July, I’ve still managed to choose over 25 favourite pictures to share with you all today.

 

So, without further ado, here is my favourite pictures that I’ve “hearted” through-out the month of July:

 

My Absolute Favourite

Out of all this month’s pick of pictures, I think my favourite has to be the first picture of a book. It’s not necessarily that this is my favourite picture to look at, but it represents how my life is at the moment, and how life evolves and you have chapters of different events in your life. This is just so relevant for me and my family at the moment. It’s so simple, but is just so significant. I love it!

 

I hope you’ve all enjoyed another round up of how my July went along with some gorgeous pictures from We Heart It. If you want to read up on the rest of this monthly 2014 series, then click HERE.

The Best Of We Heart It- June Part 2

The Quotes

Hello Lovelies

 

This round of The Best Of We Heart It posts are inspired by a few late evening walks, an urge to travel, and a love for nature’s beauty.

 

This June seemed to bring quite a lot to the 2014 plate. My to-do list seemed to absolutely explode and every single moment of my time was just taken up with things that were kind out of my control. You’d know how I feel if your currently, or have recently been doing your GCSE’s. Also, a lot of the things that I love in life got really neglected and I found myself evaluating a lot of things in my life. I’m not trying to be really depressing, but I want rachelspick to be an open space for me to share my feelings, and hopefully one of you out there will be able to relate to how I feel.

 

However, June was a great month for me. What I mean my this, is that I feel like I’m finally on the path of finding myself and deciding who I want to be friends with, and what I really want my life to be like. I know it seems like I think way to much about my future, but school kind of forces you to have to think about it and evaluate what you want to do past your GCSE’s.

 

As June was such a productive and table turning month, I had to have some quotes that I loved and that always inspired me. So here are a few of my favourites.

 

 

My Absolute Favourite

According to how June faired for me, I’ve decided on this quote: “In life we do things. Some we wish we had never done. Some we wish we could replay a million times in our heads. But they all make us who we are. And in the end they shape every detail about us. If we were to reverse any of them we wouldn’t be the person we are. So just live. Make mistakes, have wonderful memories, But never ever second guess who you are, where you have been, and most importantly where it is you’re going.”

 

I just love this quote because of how relatable it is, and just how realistic it is. It’s a quote that so many people will be able to connect to and is something that’s really inspiring to live your life by. It makes everything that happens in life alright, and I just adore it!

The Best Of We Heart It- June

Hello Lovelies

 

This round of The Best Of We Heart It posts are inspired by a few late evening walks, an urge to travel, and a love for nature’s beauty.

 

Last month, I really enjoyed being able to go on evening walks with my dog and just being able to feel the sun in my eyes and the breeze in my hair. These moments always make think about how great life is. I always find myself thinking and making a lot of life decisions while I’m on those walks. For me, it’s so important to have something in life that makes you evaluate what’s going on and really gives you that spurge to carry on.

 

Another thing that I really enjoyed about June was the weather and time. I know that sounds really weird, but life seems to go by so fast that sometimes you never even get a moment to step back and just take everything in. Also, I loved being able to spend a bit of quality time with my family, and just get away from everything else that seems to stress me out in life. At these times I always thought about a quote that I saw recently on Pinterest: “Be gentle with yourself, your doing the best you can”. You can go and have a read of my Quotes board HERE.

 

What did the month of June bring for you?

 

To help me get away from all the deep thinking that I was doing throughout the month of June, I spent quite a lot of time, on my good old friend, We Heart It. I probably spent a bit too much time hearting cute, little pictures and quotes that I saw, but I have to make these monthly posts worthwhile for all of you that are reading them.

 

So, without further ado, here’s my favourite cute, little inspiring pictures that I’ve hearted throughout the month of June:

 

My Absolute Favourite

I think my favourite of all of this months pictures, has to be the first picture of the retro bike. I love how it has that real feeling of just being on holiday in Italy and roaming around the streets, just sightseeing. Also, it gives of that feeling of romance with the just married sign at the back of the bike. I just love it!

 

I hope you’ve enjoyed a little bit of a different take to this month’s round of We Heart It posts, but I don’t want to make it really repetitive. Also, I want to quickly apologise for being a hit distant on here lately, I’ve had a lot on my plate and I need to get back into the whole writing a blog post situation.

 

Love you all
