Let’s have a catchup shall we?
As I’m writing this it’s only been 8 days since my last post but it feels like f o r e v e r. With going on holiday, being reunited with all my friends and of course seeing Green Day, it feels like a lot has happened in a short space of time (aka the perfect excuse for another W.I.L.D instalment).
If you haven’t checked out the first W.I.L.D post (which btw you totally should) then this is my monthly-ish series where I fill you in on what I’ve been:
WATCHING | INTERESTED IN | LUSTING OVER | DOING
Now following on from the first in the series I’ve been thinking of some different ways to organise/display the post because it doesn’t feel quite right so whether or not writing Becca will have changed this at the time of writing this sentence, I don’t know – but bare with me until I get everything spot on! And with that…
L O V E I S L A N D. I mean are we even surprised? I’ve been angry, emotional and had a dream when I had a fight with Amber (I won, duh) but this. show. There’s just something about it that – whilst when you actually think about it, it’s pretty naff – that’s just got me hooked.
In a less trashy tv manner – Doctor Who, which as I’m writing this has made me sing ‘OOOOOOO WEY OHHHHHHHHHH dumdedum dumdemdum” in my head. It somehow slipped away from me over the past month or two and I found myself with 5 episodes to catch up on. There I was just expecting it to be an easy ride but no, found myself on an emotional rollercoaster didn’t I?
THE MASTER IS BACK WHAT THE HECK???! MY BRAIN IS TOO HAPPY TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THE BLOODY HELL IS HAPPENING BUT YASSSSSSS https://t.co/obwwZZWmKz

Finally on the watching front I have to mention the absolutes babes that are Scott Hoying and Mitch Grassi (aka two of the most adorable people ever) who released a music video for their tune ‘Imaginary Parties‘. I felt like a new woman after watching this. For those that don’t know, I’m creating a film for my FMP next year and THE IDEAS that I got from this. Just wow. I’ve completely overthrown the way I used to think about creativity and my ideas since watching this and I am s o excited to get cracking with my film now.
/ INTERESTED IN
There’s a lack of physical/bloggy mentions in this months W.I.L.D – I feel like the past few weeks have been about self-discovery. I fell out of love with Instagram for a little bit, it’s something that happens (a bit too often). But over the past three weeks or so I’ve been loving it. There’s something about seeing a photo you’ve taken and mentally screaming THAT’S THE ONE that is just fabulous. I found myself in a rut posting similar things all the time but I’m trying to push myself out of my comfort zone (both in photography and colour??? I know I’m just as shocked at the amount of colour on there as you are) and it’s been great exploring more of my creative side.
Speaking of my creative side, I don’t know what it is but I’ve just wanted to create. I want to learn more, read more, create more. I’m seeing so many amazing people achieve so many things and I crave a part of that. I’ve recently been getting into my uni/creative instagram a lot more and my portfolio should be coming veeeeerrrrry soon and I’m super excited to get into worky mode and start turning my thoughts into a reality.
/ LUSTING OVER
Where do I even begin? Firstly myself, Connor, my sister Emma and her boyfriend drove on down to Devon for a lil glamping break whilst our parents were away. I’m sure if you’ve been on my instagram then you’d have seen this but the place was SO GODDAMN GORGEOUS. My childhood holidays of surfing and relaxing by the sea cam flooding back to me as the gorgeous beach came into view and I honestly don’t think I’ve ever felt more chilled before. (Let me know if you’d like a more detailed post about where we stayed and got up!)
Fast forward to the 1st of July and well, there were a lot of feels. Thanks to my fabulous Connor, myself, him and my dad went to British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park to see the loves of my life – Green Day. I’d seen them in 2013 for the first time with my dad but I think this time topped it. It was Connor’s 1st time, my 2nd and my Dad’s 3rd and it was so unbelievably special. To see Connor getting to see the band that got him into his career and playing guitar and my dad dancing around like he was 18 again, well I cried, a lot. I’m planning on putting a post together on the day at some point but I want it to be perfect – just like that day was.
On a (slightly) less emotional note – I’m reading Harry Potter again and whilst I’m still not over finding out that I’m actually a Hufflepuff and not a Ravenclaw (I mean in all honesty with my love for yellow at the moment, I’m not that bothered) I am so ready to immerse myself in all things witchcraft and wizardry.
Apart from Aragog.
He can stay the heck away from me.
