Summer Listings


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

In the spirit of easing myself back into blogging I thought I would make one of my absolute favourite things - a list. Oohhheeeeee I love a good list.

(An oldie but goldy)

As I type this it's grey skies and raindrops tickling my windows but with June just a few days away, I'm hopeful for Summer's arrival.

Last year we had an amazing few months. We visited friends, had patio parties and I got really into making cocktails- maybe a little too into it haha. This year, thanks to Sprinkle of Glitter, things are already being put in the diary and fun things are happening around the house. Do you want to hear about them? Hope so because that's kinda where I'm going with this.


June

June is set to be completely manic but I'm itching to go and feeling good about it all. 

I'll be attending Digifest in New York (and standing on stage in front of 10,000 people- oh my!) as well as Vidcon in Los Angeles with my YouTube family. I might also be going to Toronto as well but this is still up in the air because I am weighing it against Mummy/Wifey commitments.

One of my Christmas presents from Miss Zoe was tickets to see One Direction and after weeks of waiting, we're almost there. Outfits have been chosen, travel arrangements have been discussed and lyrics learnt. I don't care how old you are, you can't beat a bit of cheesy pop with your besties!

Renovations are coming along nicely. We recently had decorators in for our hall and landing so feel very swish about this and slowly but surely the office is coming together. We've also shifted things round a bit upstairs so soon we'll have another bedroom which is always handy. My Dad automatically assumed it was for a new baby. Deary me. 

Weather permitting I also want to spend a lot of outdoor time with Baby Glitter. It's good for me to keep up with exercising and I find she is a much happier child when she's had a chance to let off steam and go free in the wild haha. It's also a wonderful opportunity to unplug from technology and really be present with her. 


July

Oh July, what lovely homey things you are set to bring.

We've had a meeting with a landscaper about our perilously boring garden and have designed something a lot better. Think decking, kiddie areas, BBQ zones and outdoor lighting. Fingers crossed construction starts in July and we can party all August long!

Kittens. Yes, you heard it, kittens. I'll say no more. 

I want to spend so much time with my friend's Mark and Clare in July. Clare is a Teacher so will hopefully have some free time and I will be in the country and taking a breather so I want to just hang about with her, sipping drinks, nibbling chinese takeaway and chatting about everything and nothing. She's good for my heart I think. 

I also want to take Darcy for ice creams and on country side adventures galore. 

----------

Writing all that out has been like therapy. I can't wait. 

What are you excited for this Summer? Do you have any good suggestions for things I could do (and share on here afterwards?)

Toodlepip!

  6. I love these types of posts Louise.
    I can't wait to see the kittens I can only imagine how excited you are!
    I'm looking forward to summer too! I have a few camping weekends away and a holiday abroad in August to look forward to! I'm also going to be saying goodbye to one of my best friends which isn't great but I'm so happy for her! She is starting a new job as Snow White, or her proper title 'International Disney Princess' in Paris!

  14. I'm so excited for June! I'll be travelling with my best friends to Austria, Germany, England and France! I've never been to any of those countries and I'm practically wetting myself with excitement! gahhhh!! I think July will be a pretty relaxing month for me - I'll be fresh back from my European getaway, but I'll definitely be attending the occasional pool + patio party! August is another month I'm very excited about. My best friend who lives very far away from a me (a whole country away!) is visiting and we will be also seeing a One Direction show in Toronto. Super excited to scream lyrics at the tops of our lungs, even if we will be some of the eldest there - oh well!

    It sounds like you have a wonderful summer planned! I can't wait to read about all your adventures + see your posts!

I'm really looking forward to going on holiday to Lanzarote with my boyfriend Tom after years of wanting to go abroad with him! Along with that I will be finishing my first year of uni and moving out of halls into a rented house-exciting but scary! I can't believe how time has flown. Have an amazing time seeing one direction and I can't wait to see when you get your kittens! xxx

  28. What a lovely summery list! I wish I could make some homey and decorating plans as well, but for now I'm the most excited about next week: I will be travelling to London for a long awaited UK holiday :) will do some touristy things and see my favourite band (Hudson Taylor) in concert :). As for the rest of the summer there is a number of friends' weddings to go to/sing at and then an important 2-week singing thing with my choir. The time in between will be filled with more jobhunting and general trying to survive.

This summer I'm excited for being able to take a breather after my final exam and all other college work, my town's gala day, TFIOS movie, going on holiday for two weeks to two Haven holiday parks (and finally getting to go to Blackpool!), drinking iced coffee, watching endless amounts of anime and hopefully spending much needed time with my best friend.

  55. Louise, I'm genuinely so excited for you! I started watching your videos back when I was living in Russia and sometimes when i had my sad days you'd brighten up my day. I'm absolutely in love with your personality and you remind me that everything should have a positive outlook and how important is a good sense of humor. Maybe one day we will meet and I hope to tell you all that in person. Keep it up! This summer will definitely turn out to be amazing for all of us xxx
