My favourite blog posts of August 2019!

Well here you are my lovelies, the usual roundup of my favourite content from the month! Enjoy!

Also, a small disclaimer: I always try super hard to make these posts fair and to share a wide range of content but obviously I can’t share everything or my post would be never-ending! But it is never my intention to make anyone feel bad so please don’t be upset if you are not featured this time around. If I have EVER interacted with you in any way, then know that I value you. We are all valid here ❤
