Monthly Favourites - May 2017

May has, by far, been the best month of the year. I think we all know that has to do with my travels this month (don't worry, I'll go back to those posts next week). However, I have a couple other things on this list that has to do with practicality. So let's get right into it!

1. Canon PowerShot SX420 IS

I know nothing about cameras. I don't know what constitutes a good one. All I know is that I wanted a camera that was good enough to take travel pictures and is a step above my iPhone. I had a gift card, found a flash sale, and fate happened. I love this camera. It ended up being so much smaller than I expected. As in, it's slightly smaller than my hand. I love it. Again, I don't really know what makes a good camera, but this works for my purposes. From here on out, hopefully all of my pictures will be higher quality. Let me know what you think for the next three pictures.

2. Haworth


I have written nothing about this yet because it was my favourite trip in England. It was an extremely nerdy thing to do, and I loved it. That's all I want to say because if I start talking about it now, I will not stop gushing. You will have to come back here on the 10th to find out what this trip was all about.

3. Fanny Pack



I am a huge fanny pack advocate. During o-week at the beginning of the year, I wore one the entire time. It was so convenient to have everything right there. I also always felt my phone vibrate which does not happen when it's in my pocket. I decided to use it to as a little camera bag for my adorable camera. As you can see, it worked out perfectly. This picture is from Spurn Point, and it shows off just how short I am.

4. England



I was going back and forth on which picture I was going to choose to encapsulate two whole weeks of travelling. I think this one's the best. It shows off my three favourite things about England; castles, scenery, and Matt. This trip wasn't just about England. It was about our relationship. As of tomorrow, we've been long distance for a year. It's had its tough moments, but having two full weeks together made everything worth it. Soon enough, we'll be closer together (more hints!).

5. My Cousin's Wedding



I have not been to a wedding since Marlee's last year. And boy, am I happy! My cousin got married this past weekend, and it was quite the event. The ceremony was beautiful (I cried), and the reception was awesome. All of the cousins got put at the "kids table," where we proceeded to drink a lot of champagne and get increasingly drunk. We were on a first name basis with our waiter who just kept filling up our glasses. We danced all  night, and I think we even made some friends! I talked to so many of her friends, and they were all so kind to me. It was definitely a night for the books!

My May was certainly eventful. I'm not too sure about the big events happening in June, but it will certainly be busy with work. 

What was the best part of your month? What are your upcoming events in June?
