June Hot List

Over half way through the year already! I don’t want to sound like a typical blogger, but where has this year gone?!? It’s now July, so we’re officially into the Summer months; it’s time to crack out the sandles and shorts, shave your legs (!) and wear white with a tan! Here’s the thing’s I’ve loved over the past month!

What Am I Eating?
Marks and Spencer Lemon and Lime Jaffa cakes. Bloody amazing!

What Am I Drinking?
My favourite summer drink (Apart from several cocktails!!) is Pimms. I love to make a big pitcher of it, cram it full of fruit and ice, and sit back with my mom and sister whilst the men get the BBQ underway! I’m also going through Orange and Pineapple squash like it’s gone out of fashion! It used to be orange and mango, but this has been overtaken by the pineapple!

What Am I Smelling Of?

I’ve recently subscribed to a perfume subscription service, and this months sample fragrance was Estée Lauder Beautiful.

What Am Using For Skincare?

Kiehls midnight recovery oil. I started this at the beginning of June, and it is my new Holy Grail product. I can see this love affair lasting for a long long time.

What Am I Reading?

Still trying to get down The Miniaturist, by Jessie Burton. I’m enjoying it, but I just can’t find the time to read it at the moment, so it’s very stop-start. I also reread The Remains of the Day, by Kazuo Ishiguro.

What Am I Relaxing To?

At the moment, I’m not doing a whole lot of relaxing! I’ve been so busy with work and blog things, that by the time I’ve stopped working of an evening it’s time for bed! I’m hoping that once the school holidays start I’ll have more time to do the things I like.

What Am I Wearing?

With the heat, over dug out all my maxi skirts from the back of my wardrobe in an attempt to stay cool. I’m not always the most body confident so there’s no way I’d venture out in mini skirts or denim shorts, so this is a nice alternative to keep me cool but also covered.

What Am I Watching?

Like most, I’ve been watching Orange is the new Black. Absolutely love this show!

What Am I Listening To?

Aside from my usual faves, I’ve been flicking back and forth between a few Spotify summer playlists. I love the Easy 00’s one and Live Lounge Acoustic.

Where Am I Visiting?

Alas, nowhere. I’ve been so busy with work that I haven’t been able to venture any further afield than Stratford-upon-Avon. But, what a place! I especially love walking along the river, past the RSC, in the sunshine with an ice cream. There’s no better place that Stratford on a sunny day!

Have a great July, everybody!
