June Favourites

How fast did June go by? I don’t know whether it’s because we had a holiday, but this month has gone past in a flash; albeit a very happy, smile filled flash! Here are a few things that have been putting said smile on my face throughout June.Peonies. Ah peonies… I so wish you could pick these beauties up all year round. They are so pretty, smell amazing and brighten up the house no end. I’ve had a few bunches this month, but finding them for £3 in Aldi and £2.40 in Asda with a big ‘whoops’ sticker on them, made them even better! I’m keeping the smell alive with my The Library of Fragrance Peony Cologne though.img_9479Okay, so I bought this in May but only found a home for it in June. This print is absolutely gorgeous! It’s from The Hidden Pearl Studio and is hand painted by the very talented Charlie. I could never pick a favorite season and love them all for different reasons, so this print was perfect for me. Charlie has a lovely range of handmade cards and prints, and I know I’ll be visiting her online shop in future.img_9106I’ve been researching music for our upcoming wedding and creating playlists for different parts of the weekend. You can read a bit more about our wedding plans here. We thought it would be nice to have some Motown hits for when our guests arrive at the venue after the ceremony (who doesn’t love a bit of Motown). I started creating a playlist and found so many amazing songs that I’d either never heard or didn’t know who sung them. We’ve expanded the playlist to include some more modern soul music too now. My favourite find is Leon Bridges. How had I never heard his stuff before?! We’ve had his album on repeat and know we’ve love it for years to come.A bit of beauty now and this new moisturiser from L’Oreal is AMAZING! It’s the Hydra Genius Aloe Water and I highly recommend it. My skin can get oily with some moisturisers and I end up looking more ‘Sweaty Betty’ than ‘Dreamy Dewy’. You only need one pump, it absorbs instantly and leaves your skin feeling smooth and refreshed; no greasy skin!img_9924Last but certainly not least, these blush pink, embroidered shoes of dreams. As Carrie Bradshaw would say, hello lover! I treated myself to these for my hen do this weekend and cannot wait to wear them. The detail on them is stunning and they’re super comfy too. I’ll be wearing these all through summer, autumn and even winter paired with some cosy knit tights.img_9923
