August is a good month. I’ve got a music festival to look forward to (more on that below), the first ever magazine with me listed as an editor will be published this month (eek!) and the sun is still shining. What could be better?
Here’s what I’m excited for this August.
Lindsey Kelk’s latest offering – One in a Million – is a gooden. I’m about four chapters in so far and I am addicted. It’s all about social media extrodinare – Annie Higgins – who talks herself into the challenge of trying to make a random stranger Intagram-famous in just thirty days. The random stranger ends up being the slightly weird Dr Samuel Page – to whom there is more than meets the eye. Not only does Annie Higgins have the best job in the world (in an uber cool office too), she’s also incredibly down to earth. Oh, and Charlie Wilder from About a Girl (another great book from Lindsey Kelk) makes an appearance too..
One in a Million is out now.
I haven’t actually seen any trailers for this nor do I know much about it but I’m curious to see Slender Man. The legend of Slender Man is equally terrifying and fascinating and I used to read about it a lot when I was younger. It actually originated on creepypasta and it just goes to show that sometimes someone on a message board or just an average person can come up with something so much more scary than what movie producers come up with these days.
Slender Man will be released on the 10th August.
TWENTY ONE PILOTS. TWENTY ONE PILOTS. TWENTY ONE PILOTS.
That’s all I have to say.
Not really. After being silent for so long, twenty one pilots have finally come back with two brand new singles, a worldwide tour and an album on the horizon. The songs are different – Nico and the Niners is super catchy, whereas Jumpsuit is rather grungy – but they’re the perfect stepping stone from the bands last album, Blurryface, to the next, Trench. Also, in a sad twist of events, I am desperate to know who provided the jumpsuits/wardrobes for the bands music videos/new look, being that I work in the PPE/workwear industry now. Imagine if whoever it was became my client…a girl can dream!
Trench will be released on the 5th October.
Boomtown baby! It’s finally time for boomtown. My floral crown is nowhere near ready, I’ve only just booked in to get my hair cut (fringe is so long I can’t even see right now!) and I am absolutely petrified of bumping into my recent ex and his new girlfriend there but I am READY. ish. Bring it on! There’s still loads to do but I have been working my arse off lately and haven’t had a break since my ill-fated rainy long weekend in Berlin in January, so I cannot wait to dress up, get some sun and PARTY.
Boomtown Fair runs from the 9th to the 12th August.
I am obsessed with Unicorn Superfoods right now – their Instagram is an absolute dream. Ever wanted to make unicorn toast or space coloured donuts? This is the brand you need to hit up to achieve those #instaworthy foods. Better yet? The powders are 100% natural, they’re energizing, nourishing and, well, general super foods, they’re gluten free and they are ENTIRELY VEGAN. And yes, there’s even a recipe for super pretty vegan donuts on the website. Can I bake? No. Do I actually have the time or motivation to make smoothie bowls for breakfast? Hell no. Am I going to spend £50 for the Unicorn bundle? You bloody betcha. Keep your eyes peeled for some delicious looking creative food on my Instagram soon. Hopefully.
