THE BLOGGING CHRONICLE: JULY 2013

hOT FROM July


- The month of July has been a bitter sweet affair.
At the beginning of the month I was enjoying a truly wonderful holiday with Dan.
We adventured whilst drinking up lots of sunshine and simply enjoyed one anothers company.
It was brilliant.
Sadly, when I returned home I had to deal with some pretty devastating news that hit me in a double whammy with a huge kick in the stomach.
I learned that my Nana, who had been battling with the aftermath of a stroke alongside dementia had passed away and my Grandad who was otherwise very healthy had suffered a dangerous stroke himself.
It was all too much to take in and for the remainder of July I have not felt like myself, struggling to understand why my life has turned upside down.

I am very lucky to say that I have had amazing support from both my family and Dan and his family and I am starting to accept what has happened.
I currently feel very sad a lot of the time but it is important for me to realise that these raw feelings won't last forever.

Sadness aside, things on Good Golly Miss Hollie have been continuing as normal and I have recieved some lovely, supportive comments from you guys that really put a smile on my face.
I also hit 1000 blog followers which is unbelieveable!
Thank-you so much for your continued support for my blog, it means the world to me.

Each month I look back over each post and pick our my favourites. 
I also throw in a cheeky post from the archives  for your amusement.

1.

- I took some time to really look at my perfume collection and as soon as I inhaled the familiar scents I was taken back to particular moments in my life.
I introduced you to my daytime scent, signature scent and my memory scent.

2.

- I shared some of my holiday memories with you and also did a little bit of holiday haulin', showing you some of the goodies that I brought home from my travels in Turkey.

3.

- In this post I created a step by step guide on the eye make-up look that I wear on a day to day basis!
Perfect for all occasions and takes you from the daytime in the evening fuss free.

From July 2012

I am hoping that August will be a more positive month and I am looking forward
to feeling a lot brighter.
As they say.. The only way is up.
