Monthly Roundup: August 2018

August went a lot faster than I initially anticipated, though to be fair, I’ve been quite busy and haven’t published as much which is understandable.

I shall take a quick look back at the articles/reviews/photo moments published over the course of this month.

1.8.2018 – The time sure flew much faster this year, making it impossible to keep up with the element of time nowadays. As the extreme heatwave was expected to last until the end of August, it was safe to say the UK would expect to have some potential thunderstorms in sight, though the sunscreen would still be in use until the Autumnal weather would arrive.

2.8.2018 – Nature released her droplets of goodness in a bid to keep you going and hydrated even during the best and worst of heatwaves.

3.8.2018 – Mother Nature was bleeding crimson because of the extreme heatwave.

10.8.2018 – Forking Hell! It sure was a forking thunderbolt! What a forking liberty!

15.8.2018 – After a successful which saw the infamous blue hedgehog return to Green Hill Zone on the 15th August 2017, Sonic Mania got the physical release treatment with the definitive retail release, Sonic Mania Plus.

16.8.2018 – The Queen of Pop, Madonna, celebrated an iconic landmark as she turned 60, but following the birthday celebrations, the world mourned the passing of the undisputed and legendary Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin.

Aretha Franklin was and always will be a Natural Woman who defined what it means to be the Queen of Soul.

19.8.2018 – I captured nature in the Midst of Summer in style by using the app, A Color Story, to bring out the colour in the photo and to also make the photo pop.

30.8.2018 – Monday 27th August was rippling pink and it was quite the vibrant day indeed.

Thank you so much for a great month, and before I end this monthly roundup to close August on a high note, I feel it’s right that we remember the undisputed and legendary Queen of Soul, Aretha, who deserves all the R.E.S.P.E.C.T and found out what it really meant to feel like a Natural Woman.

Again, thank you so much, everyone, and I shall see you all in September!
