June Favourites

june favourites

Hello everyone, and welcome to my first ever favourites post! I always love reading these kinds of posts and I’ve taken so many suggestions and tips from them recently, that I thought I’d do my own. I’ve found so much wonderful junk lately and thought it was a good time to share, so here you go! First up is a beautiful vintage rose scarf* that ScarfWorld were kind enough to send to me. I absolutely love triangle scarves, they are so easy to wear and work so well with so many things. I’ve never shown my scarf collection on my blog but I’m thinking maybe I should, as it’s quite considerable. This one is a gorgeous addition to my stash, as I don’t really have any other light, summer scarves that I can pop on over a dress if I’m going out at night. I absolutely love the little rose detailing and I’ve been wearing it every day since it arrived. I’m sure you’ll see it in future outfit posts! Next I got a really scrummy Yankee candle* from Scented Candle Shop, Summer Scoop. It smells exactly like raspberries and ice cream and sugar, it's unbelievable. The make-up* is all from W7, and I'm really impressed with it. I'd never tried a fixing spray before I was a bit worried it would be like having hairspray on my  face, but it was actually really hydrating and smelled gorgeous. This lipstick is a lovely bright pink shade, which made a nice change from my usual matte red. As you all know I'm a big fan of Nylon and the latest issue, with Haim gracing the cover, was just a match made in heaven. I will be re-reading that for a while yet, I think.

Pretty scarf, I've gone off Yankee Candles but one of my old favourites is 'fresh cut roses' which makes my whole place smell amazing and like a secret garden!
Looking forward to seeing more of these posts from you!

Your photographs always make my day! :D I didnt think it was even possible to sprawl something prettily along the floor but you've proved me wrong.

Nylon is the only fashion magazine I read, for real!... It has it all and not the same silly shenanigans as "how to copy Kim Kardashian's look" or "the perfect pair of shoes!" I needed to copy her or a pair of shoes that cost a million bucks...anyway,, enough hater-ness haha... I'm loving the zine, the candle♥, the scarf and I think I have a nail polish in that green color too!..cute pic..
My june favorites revolve around... dieting (not a favorite though), listening a lot of norah jones, reading great expectations, watching orange is the new black season 2! and ashtanga yoga..
what are you planning for july?
