Lifestyle: August Favs & September Goals

We are back with our Favourites of the month and our Goals for the following, but first, let's begin with an overview of our previous months goals and what we've achieved!

August has been such a blessed month for us in terms of our blog, we reached over 60K blog views, 1K+ Twitter followers, went to our first blogger meet up, first blogger event and has been shortlisted for the Best Food Blog for the Blogger Blog Awards (vote for us)
We are truly thankful for everything we've had and achieved this month, we are truly grateful for all of you for supporting us! So thank you, you amazing people!

August Goals Overview:

- Start our own Twitter FOOD chat [✓]
Can't belive we've actually done it - we now host #hungrychats every other Tuesday at 7PM, as we're alternating with @CeciliaFabert 
- Go up & slide down the Orbit for a Date Night
Unfortunately, we was not organised with this one, well it's not really our fault. We had already planned all out weekends and shifted around to much already that we couldn't do it then and it closes at 6 on weekdays, which is when we just finish work.
- Go back to Brighton, for certain ice cream shop
Again, this was due to being jammed pack with plans and having an important last minute event come up that we had to drop this plan, but will hopefully go through with next month if the weather is good to us. 
-Attend the Notting Hill Carnival (James' first time)[✓]
We attended the one day and apparently the quite day of the two, Sunday, it was defo an experience for him.
- Reach 800 Twitter Followers [✓]
We surprisingly hit this target mid way through the month - 14th August to be exact and we're so so happy that we have this many and we hope to grow more and share more adventures with you all 
- Start using Blog Lovin' properly [✓]
I'm not sure if this could be one but I must say we started with nothing and now have 20+ followers, it's not much but it's a start and slowly getting the hang of it! Follow us ;) (side bar)


July Goals (now achieved):
We thought it was only right to fix what we didn't achieve in the previous month and show it here!

- Visit at least 2 independent coffee shops in London[✓]So so happy we managed to get two independent coffee shops, both recommended by @beanthereat
which you can find them here and here

August Favs:

FOOD

Restaurant: The Alchemist, Liverpool
Hands down, the reason for this choice was the experience of the drinks! It was honestly so impressive and we hope to visit the London branch soon!

Home cooked Meal: Loaded Hasselback Potatoes 

Potatoes are life! How could one complain, it's got all the good nacho stuff thrown on it!

PEOPLE

Twitter to Follow: @CeciliaFabert
How could we not give a big shout out to our Twitter chat partner in crime! We would't have been able to create #hungrychats without her! Make sure to follow her as we co-host the chat together and alternate every other Tuesday at 7PM.

YouTube to Watch: Lexi Life
Since watching her holiday vlogs, I have been hooked on her bubbly personality - She has recently started some make up tutorials and they are serious GOALS! You will not regret it! 


BEAUTY:

Lips: NYX
I have recently purchased a few NYX products and so far, these are my favourite two - NYX Lingerie, Exotic LL12, which my sister actually bought for me from Philippines and NYX soft matte lip cream, ABU DHABI SMLC09.


OTHER

Date Night: Duck & Waffle
Dinner with a view, one of the most memorable Date Nights we've ever had!

September Goals:

- Buy a proper vlogging camera for our holiday and our vlogs in general
- Reach 60 subscribers on YouTube
- Cook at least 3 times a week at home
- Bake at least twice this month
- Keep up with British Bake Off
