The August and September Edition

It's been a while since I have done a The Edition post due to having other posts that I preferred to do instead but I thought I would update you about all that it going on.

Shows I've Been Watching

American Horror Story: Hotel
I finally got around to watching season 5 and to say I was a little disappointed in it would be an understatement. I liked the plot but there was no huge plot twist at the end which isn't AHS' style. It was watchable and had all the amazing actors, except Jessica Lange, and some more juicy bits for the theory that all the seasons are connected with several characters from previous seasons making cameo.

RuPaul's Drag Race
This is the show I watch during the week after I'm finished all my homework and want to relax. It is so easy to watch, not much thinking involved and it makes me laugh. I am currently watching season 6 but my favourite season is definitely 3. Raja is my queen! The Heels of Hell tour is coming to Dublin during the week of my pre mocks which is so annoying as I would love to go. Hopefully, they'll come back next year and I will definitely go.

Wow! I was not expecting this to be so good but it was amazing. I can't wait for season 2 which should be out soon and I'm looking forward to getting back into the town of Riverdale. For anyone who hasn't watched Riverdale it is very similar to High School Musical except if Ryan got murdered. There's a jock that wants to sing and do football, a pair of twins that were inseparable and a preppy girl who wants to do good in school. Obviously it's not the exact same as HSM there's no prancing around a golf club filled with rage but it is a coming of age sort of TV show.

Stranger Things
This was the next on my list of things to watch and not going to lie it took me a while to get into this series. It is set in the 80's where Will Byers go missing and his friends try to find him but end up finding a girl instead. It is such a unique plot and I'm looking forward to season 2 when it comes out later this month.

Books I've Been Reading

I have been watching Melanie's videos for over 2 years now and when I heard that she was writing a book I knew I needed it in my life. She is the first Irish YouTuber that I ever watched and I still love her content. It is a part memoir, part life guide and there's a lot of advice in it for anyone dealing with anything from relationships, eating disorders or the pressures of social media, it felt nice having a big sister in a book to give you some advice on everything.

Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas
I took a little break from Sarah J. Maas and now I am back on that train with the fourth book of the TOG series. I went through a little reading rut this month, so I took a break from this book and started a Fully Functioning Human instead. I haven't finished this yet. I haven't got fair enough into it to give you my full opinion but so far so good.

Things I've Been Doing

Back to School
September came with back to school session and I didn't mind going back. After a month, I've had enough of this hard work thing and want to take a break. I've started Maths grinds and I'm up to my eyeballs in homework and study. My pre-mocks are in two weeks and I'm not looking forward to them at all.

Higher Options
I went to Higher Options the day before my driving test which kept my nerves at bay. Higher Options is a convention where you have all the colleges of Ireland with some from Europe and the US in one hall. I enjoyed going around to different colleges and getting booklets and asking about their science courses as that's what I want to do. I have 3 open days coming up in the next month and I'm looking forward to having a look around the campus.

Driving Test
I failed my first driving test which is pretty standard for the majority of learner drivers but I failed on a good few things. I would go into the details of what I need to improve on but there is a list. I was pretty upset about it, not going to lie, and if you saw my Snapchat story you would remember how upset I was as I even cried on my story, first time to do that. I was disappointed as nothing went the way it should have gone, I had a lesson beforehand and everything went smoothly but during the test it turned for the worst. I hope to reapply soon and hopefully pass it the next time.

Blog Awards Ireland Finalist in Best Lifestyle Blog
This is the third time I will be writing this, firstly it was my excitement for being Longlisted, then the shock of getting Shortlist and now I'm a fricking finalist! It still feels pretty surreal to me. I was unable to go to the actual awards ceremony as it was on a school night which was a bummer but it looked amazing. I received yesterday to say I got the Bronzer award of my category and it really is the icing on the cake. I had a feeling I wouldn't win as I has the baby of the bunch with the least experience but I got Bronze and Bronze is golden to me.

Things I've Been Loving

Look What You Made Me Do - Taylor Swift
This song has been my jam since the day it was released. I can't wait for Reputation to come out in nearly a month. It is such a sing along song and I adore the music video. I think it is very Blank Space 2.0.

Wet Brush Detangler Hair Brush
This might seem a little strange to have a favourite as a hair brush but it was badly needed. I've been using the same hairbrush that I bought in Primark for as long as I can remember. I had heard a lot about the brand Wet Brush and when I saw them in TK Maxx for €10 I decided to pick one up and it changed everything. My scalp used to get irritated by the harsh bristles of my old hair brush which wasn't pleasant. I could never brush my hair when it was wet because the brush would tug at my hair, that's not good either. I don't have either of those problems with this brush and it also looks really cute.

What have you been up to?

Thanks for being awesome,
