Another Summer month gone, so another round up to show you here. July has been a bit of a mixed bag for me, and we haven’t had the best weather this month either, so I’m hoping for slightly better things in August. I did say June was a tough act to follow, and maybe July didn’t step up in quite the same way, but I’m feeling positive for August, let’s see how it goes!

Five Things

July 29, 2015

It’s Wednesday and I thought it called for a little look inside a few things going on around me at the moment. I’ve been around the house a lot over the past few weeks and so have been trying to keep myself busy as much as possible. Here are a few of my favourites of the moment.

Wedding Garters

July 27, 2015

It’s not part of the bride’s wedding attire that many people see but lots of brides see it as an important tradition that they like to uphold on their big day. Some like to make their own, very much like Lucy did as part of her hen celebrations, but for those who don’t possess quite the same artistic flare, they may look to Etsy to see what’s on offer. You can find garters to suit most types of wedding dress if you choose to remain inkeeping with a specific style. You may also like to incorporate another wedding day tradition and have an element of blue in your garter. Now that I’ve picked out my dress, it’s something I may be looking to purchase over the next few months so I’ve picked out a selection I particularly liked.

My Favourite Things About Summer

July 16, 2015

Favourite Summer

Summer is, as I’ve said plenty around here recently, my absolute favourite time of the year. It really brings out the best in people and the world just seems like a better place. Here are my absolute favourite things about this season!

1. Long days

It still being light at 10pm and being woken up by a gorgeous sunny morning is bliss and I only wish that these super long days could last all year round. I am in such a better place when I can time my routine by the rising and setting of the sun and it really doesn’t feel good when the nights start closing in in August and I know that we’ll soon be back into Winter mode.

2. The food

Everything is so bright and fresh in the Summer, that I just feel like I make better decisions about my food and generally feel good about my choices. British strawberries are my absolute favourite at this time of year and I would eat them everyday if I could. And don’t even get me started on how much I adore the salads that make an appearance everywhere during this time, I try and make as many of my own as I can too, and I love it!

3. Getting out and about

I feel so much more motivated to get outside, either visiting different places or getting active, during these couple of months. When the weather is good and the days are long, I feel so much better and getting out and about just helps with that so much. Even if it’s just going for an iced coffee or a long walk, I feel good when I’m outside, really experiencing the day.

4. The clothes

I love my Summer wardrobe and on dark Winter days dream of a time when I don’t have to leave the house in a coat, boots, a hat, a scarf and gloves. Pretty dresses, loose t-shirts and skirts are the best reason to get out into the good weather and really feel good about yourself.

5.  The smells

Weird, I know, but one of my favourite things about the Summer is the different smells that accompany it. Whether that’s freshly cut grass, smokey BBQs or suntan lotion, there’s nothing quite the same as those Summer aromas that fill the air during these months. And it’s always nice to fill my house with floral goodness, so that I can get that scent too!

Currently Listening To…

July 15, 2015

It’s been quite a few months since I introduced you to something I’m currently listening to and I felt like now was the perfect chance to highlight something awesome. I’ve recently completely fallen in love with the music of Emily Hearn – I can’t remember exactly how I came across her but it was when I was looking for music for our wedding video and now I can’t stop buying her albums and EP’s and watching her YouTube videos. This is my current favourite, and is the one we chose for our wedding video – it’s the perfect wedding song and completely sums up how I feel about my new husband, so it seems appropriate. Enjoy.
