Happy new month. Welcome to the month of August. It’s been a while since I did a monthly review so I thought I’d do one this month.
July was everything I thought it would be and more. I reached and even passed most of my goals for July and that made me really happy.
Some of my goals were to:
- Post more than once a week
I was actually excited about being able to do this despite all the other work I have to do. I hope to keep bringing quality content your way so stay glued.😁
So last month I planned to do a lot of DIYs including putting egg in my hair😭😭. I actually did quite a number even though some turned out really messy. Haha yes. DIYs are messy. I would probably share some of them with you in later posts.
So I planned that I was going to use most of my July free time to read and write – which I did – and I enjoyed some of the books I read. I would review them here on the blog sometime later.
I’m grateful for:
Sometimes we take things like good health for granted until we are not feeling so good anymore. I’m really grateful for good health.
I made some mistakes in July but I’m grateful that I was able to learn from them and apply myself in using what I learnt.
Love and support.
Sometimes I look at the love and support I get from people and I’m just overwhelmed. July was filled with so much love and warmth from people. I’m really grateful that I have that.
All of you.
Yes! I’m always grateful for all of you readers and subscribers. There is hardly Tinyeyed without you so thank you for always clicking and reading.
Book: My favourite book last month was A Waist is a Terrible Thing To Mind. You can see the review I posted here.
- Loving Amanda
I spent the month anticipating the book Loving Amanda by one of my fav authors – Laju Iren. It’s finally out and I would be posting a review soon. So now, I’m anticipating reviewing the book. Haha! I can’t wait. For now, you can get the book on Okada books or Kobo books.
- CITY Summer Leadership Camp 2018.
Whoooooop!!!! So CITY Camp is Eagles’ HOPE Foundations: ‘Teenagers Camp’. It’s an 8-day Summer Camp [Residential] coming up August 11th – 18th, 2018.
CITY Summer Leadership Camp is always a fun, insightful & thrilling experience for the teenage participants (13 – 18 years, whom we call ‘leaders’) and we the super volunteers, and this year would be no exception.
I’m so happy to be one of the volunteers and I just cannot wait. If you want to be a part of this or you have a teenager that you would love to see experience a transformation within 8 days, just register here. You would not want to let a teenager you know miss this. Thank me later.
Oh! And you can sponsor a child!

In the past month I learnt that:
- Apart from putting your mind to something, you need to put your hand to it. Obsessing will not achieve your goals for you. You have to do it yourself.
- The best thing you can do with a mistake is to learn from it.
- One of the best things you can have for yourself is a good support system.
I think that’s it. July was mostly love, warmth, grace and sunshine and while I’m grateful for that, I’m certain that August would be even better. I cannot wait for all the August awesomeness that I would be sharing with you. Till then, stay blessed.
