Hi everyone, welcome or welcome back to Maya’s Life and Travels. I can’t believe it’s July already, time has flown by so fast! I hope the month of June served you all well. We are in the final stretch of 2021 and are in the middle of year now. I don’t know where all those 6 months went. For me, it feels like January was yesterday! June was a really good month for me, it was my birthday month and it was the month my blog grew a lot. I always look forward to the month of June every year because of my birthday and the summer holidays and I still can’t believe it just flew around the corner.
First off, I got to do some really fun posts this month and I also got to start my very own blogger interview series. I also started doing some ACNH (Animal Crossing New Horizons) gaming content which is something I am going to be doing more of on the blog. In addition, I also started doing more ‘How to” blogging posts as well. I started doing some more beauty posts since I am a beauty blogger as well. Here are some of my favourite posts I did last month:
- #ThisorThat: an original ‘Get to know me better’ tag by Poorwa’s blog
- Interview with Zainab chats
- Where to find the best stock images for you to use for your blog
- Summer hairstyles you can easily recreate yourself
I was nominated for some awards and if you want to see the awards I got nominated for you can read more in this post here. I created my own “Inspirational Blogger Award” which is my own blogger award and to start it off, I nominated 7 bloggers. If you want to learn more about the award, make sure to check out the post here. I always wanted to create my own award and I am really proud of myself because I finally did it.
On the blog, we also reached 200 followers yesterday which is a huge achievement! Let me know in the comments what you want me to do for a 200 followers celebration! I am grateful to all my readers for showing me so much support on this blog. My blog statistics this month were a bit low compared to other months which is something I am going to work on. The highest views we ever got were a whopping 2067 views in April. On the other hand, we also reached 5550+ views in total!
It was my birthday on the 18th of June and I shared some of my highlights of the day with you guys in this post. This was my first ever birthday I had on the blog and I really enjoyed it. Here are some of the presents I got:
I also shared some Highlights from my Birthday in this short YouTube video I published on my blog’s YouTube channel. Feel free to check it out!
I published 3 ways to revise for your upcoming exam. I had exams last month and I was really stressed out for them and I am so glad they are finally over.
I shared some of my lipgloss monthly favourites and I also did reviews on some of my favourite lipgloss. I also did a Kiko Milano haul and I brought 2 3D hydra lip glosses and I also reviewed them in the post. Here are the colours I got:
Self care is something I got into a lot in June and is something I do practise regularly. I got really into face masks last month and I also shared some of my favourite face masks to put on.
Reading was something I also got into a lot in June and has become a regular habit for me. My favourite book of last month was Rumaysa: A fairytale. I also published a book review of the book so if you want to read the review click here. If you don’t know about the book, Rumaysa: A fairytale is a trio of famous fairy tales Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Rapunzel rewritten all composed into one book. The characters and the story are rewritten in a more Muslim perspective and that is something I really love about the book because there are not a lot of books where girls have brown skin and wear a hijab.

I started journaling in June and I purchased a journaling kit and I will share it on the blog soon! Right now, I only have done my future log which I promise I will share soon!
I got into the habit of creating mood boards in June and it is something I really enjoy doing. Here are some of the moodboards I created so far:
This is my playlist for June! (Some of the song’s are in English). I discovered lots of new artists in June and I fell in love with even more songs. In June, I loved listening to Saad Lamjarred song Lm3allem the most as well as Ensay by Mohamed Ramadan and Mamnoo Ellames by Hala Al Turk.
