August 2015: The Month Of…

Our Editor-in-Chief, Martha, has decided to hand over the reigns of our “The Month of…” series to yours truly.

From now on, I’ll be bringing you the full round up of what the months of the year represent.

As July 2015 draws to a close (seriously, where did the month go?), it’s time to check out what the month, weeks and days of August 2015 have in store for us.


August 2015 Is The National Month Of:

  • Admit You’re Happy Month – Because deep down you know there is always some one worse off than you.
