June Favourites | Beauty, Fashion and General Faves

Hello again! 

It's been a month or two since I did a monthly Favourites and seeing as I've been loving a lot this past month I thought I would share what I've been loving over June!

First of all is something that landed on my doorstep only a few days ago but I love it already and it's Tanya Bakes by Tanya Burr. If you've been living under a rock and don't know who she is, she's a YouTuber who is all about beauty fashion and mainly baking! She released her first book a year or two ago and I have that one but this is my favourite. It's filled cover to cover with delicious looking cakes and pastries and I can't wait to give them a bash. I used to bake all the time but when we moved house I stopped as we have quite a small kitchen but recently I've been doing a little here and there and I now know what book I'll be reaching for when I want to bake something amazing!

This is kind of cheating since it was put on Netflix on July 1st but I have loved it for years and years so I'm including it - the Gilmore Girls!! As they have announced that they're filming new episodes (YAY) Netflix amazingly have released every single episode and I've been binge watching ever since.  Short rundown - A mum and a daughter, Lorelai and Rory, live in a quaint and quirky town called Starshollow. You follow Lorelei and her rollercoaster life of love and her relationship with her parents and you follow Rory and her passion for Harvard and her (stunningly beautiful) boyfriends. I'm obsessed!

Little bit of self advertising here but I had a little relaunch of the blog. I've changed the layout and it's now interactive (I did coding - I'm so proud) and I'm now satisfied with how 'grown up' it looks. So much so that I got these little business cards printed. Ok the only people I've handed them out to are my Friends and Family but that counts, right?

Another fave is of the shoe variety and I know you can't see them very well in the picture but they are a low fat heel, peep toe black suede shoe - so rubbish with my describing. I got these for a Styling event I went to the other day and I wanted to go for a heel but because I'm almost 6ft tall I needed them to not be high at all and these we perfect! 

My only Makeup favourite of the month is my very first NYX product and its the Illuminator in Ritualistic. This is a silvery golden highlighter - it's just beautiful on the tops of your cheekbones! I've heard that this is a cracking dupe for the Balm's Mary Lou Manizer Luminizer so thats greats seeing as it's less than half the price of that! Love a bargain!

I have truly saved the best for last. I was at work and I've been having a hard time recently because it's very hardcore and it was one of 'those' days and then I got a text. It was a photo of April proud as punch holding up this picture that she drew. It's her family she said, Mummy, Daddy and April. She is growing up far too fast. 

 So that's all my June Favourites, what have you been loving this past month?


  1. I love your new blog design, very sleek! I also cannot wait to buy the Tanya Bakes book and try out some of those recipes!

  2. Oh wow, I am a fan of NYX and have been eyeing up the pricier Balm ones, will definitely check it out thanks! I also love the Gilmore Girls, can't wait to se what they have ben up to in new epsiodes! That cookbook looks fab though I only bake once in a blue moon I admit! :-)p.s. the new blog design (and cards!) looks great!

  3. I got the Tanya Bakes book on a whim and my oh my it is amazing! I love Gilmore Girls, such a classic.
