I *HEART* August

Last month was simply amazing and was a hard month to compete with, but for me August has been just as fab:

I did my first ever guest post swap and created a lovely recipe for my Raw Chocolate Covered Coconut and Mango Bites.

I had the best time blogging for Alpro Soya at the Summer Sundae Weekender.

With the lack of flour in my house I whipped up some delicious Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cup Cookies.


This weekend just gone I went to the Notting Hill Carnival for the first time.


And since we were in London I did as all health food bloggers do and made that epic trip to the Kensington Whole Foods where lots of shopping ensued.

I had the best day ever and met the most wonderful girlies at the bloggers meet up in Manchester.

Now we are going in to autumn as well as all of the above I was thinking that this summer has been one of the best yet:

I attended my first international conference in Florence

Running my first ever 10K for Race for Life

Alfie graduated from Med school

There were lots of weddings

The Foodie Blog Swap was born

I met up with Emma another lovely blogger

Plucking up the courage to share my story

I cannot wait to see what Autumn has in store for everyone!

I was also extremely grateful to Rice Dream for sponsoring and hosting a giveaway on my blog last month. I would like to welcome back Pulsin’ this month too and don’t forget to make use of their amazing 10% discount on their site.  This month I am also happy to introduce Whole Earth as my blog sponsor for September.


If you have a blog or business that you would like to advertise on Celery and Cupcakes   I am currently looking for blog sponsors for this month and October.  You can read more about  advertising and blog sponsorship here and please feel free to contact me at celeryandcupcakes@gmail.com for more information.

How was August for you?

Was there any particular event that made summer extra special?

    You girl, are gorgeous!!!
    I want to try spirutein. I’ve heard its really good for you, but I looked some up online and seemed so expensive!
    A blog meet up sounds like so much fun!! I would love to do one, except it seems all of my blogger friends are on the other side of the world.

    Hi Jemma, seems like you had an exceptional August! I am happy for you :)
    My August was ok, I did some school work that had to be done, I met some old friends, I spent time with my family…so yes, it was a nice month for me :)

    It sounds like you had an amazing summer, I am excited for autumn too! It’s my favourite time of year, hopefully we will get some lovely autumn days before winter really sets in.

    Wow you really have had an amazing month! I hope September is equally exciting! I love Autumn – can’t wait for the clocks to go back and the misty mornings.

    I wasn’t so keen on August….ongoing stress fractures, lots of PhD work….until the Blogger meet-up! That totally made August for me and meeting you and the other guys has been the highlight of my year :D

    What an awesome (and delicious) August! I hope that September is just as good for you, if not better :D

    August was really great for me! I think the most noteworthy event of my whole summer was shopping for, and finding, a new condo to call home :D I’ll be moving in exactly two weeks and omigosh I just can’t wait ^^

    It’s sad isn’t it – hit me when I was typing 01-09-2011 earlier… but I’m trying to look on the bright side! Being able to justify snuggling on the sofa with a duvet, endless replays of Friends, lovely autumnal fruit and butternut squash…

    Yeah OK. Would still swap it all for the sun!

    Glad you’re loving the NHC though – it was fab seeing the capital alive again after the recent riots :( We’re a happy nation really :)

    Don’t suppose you have an opinion on this post do you? http://bit.ly/pqTv2A It’s about staying within the comfort zone – sometimes it’s not a bad thing. Just intrigued what you think really, given that you’re pretty well balanced in your approach to life / health / fitness xoxo

      I thought your post very interesting. I always like to push myself out of my comfort zone where exercise is concerned. When I know that I am comfortable I use that as a sign to shake things up a little to make sure that I am challenging myself and progressing. But I try not to push myself too hard I think it’s all about baby steps where exercise is concerned. Pushing too hard and beyond your means can be harmful and cause injuries in the long run :)
