June Favourites 2015

I haven't actually ever done a Favourites post on my blog before, but i thought it was about time i started to. Granted the photo backgrounds are not great as i'm yet to buy some background bits so for now these will have to do.  Below are 6 pictures of my favourite items and then at the bottoms you'll see that i've posted about my favourite songs, apps and what not.

Original Source Shower Gel in Lime: If any of you read my Boots Wishlist, which you can view here, you'll see i talked a little bit about this shower gel saying that i was going to repurchase it, and well, that's exactly what i did. I actually use this in the bath but it's my favourite wash item. It smells so much like lime, and it leaves my body smelling soo good! Out of the whole range that i've tried this is by far my favourite!

Oranges: I'm addicted! I more or less eat two oranges a day, i find them so enjoyable. Oranges are one of my favourite foods, juicy, delicious and healthy! I'm probably getting too much Vitamin C, but they're just so good!

Minions: If you didn't know already, i am Minion obsessed! If i ever see something thats's to do with minions nine times out of ten i will buy it. On the 26th June the Minion Movie came out and i haven't seen it and i'm actually very upset about it! In McDonalds right now, if you get a happy meal, it comes with a little Minion toy that says a couple of words.

Pointed Toe Ankle Strap Flats: These shoes are from New Look and i love them. I think they're a perfect Summer shoe and they can be worn with everything, shorts, jeans, dresses, skirts and they always look great. I love the simplicity of them, and i've been wearing them a lot throughout June. 

Primark PS Love Lipstick in Lollipop: This lipstick was £2 from Primark and is currently my favourite lipstick. You have to apply qutie a lot, but i think the lipstick is really pigmented. If you've seen some of my most recent Instagram posts, you'll see me wearing it. You can view my Instagram here.

FCUK Glasses: Because i've been spending a lot more time on the computer and really been trying to focus on my blog, i noticed that i probably should start wearing my glasses as i was getting headaches and my eyes felt strained. I found my latest prescription glasses in one of my drawers (probably about a year and a half old) and my eyes already feel a lot better, and i've been wearing them a lot. 

Aston Merrygold -Get Stupid: Does anyone remember JLS? Well Aston Merrygold was more or lesss the lead singer in that group, and now he's gone solo. I really like this songs, it's fun and upbeat and i just wanna start dancing around to it whenever it comes on! You can listen to the song here.
Rachel Platten - Fight Song: I hadn't heard of this artist until this song came out. This song is just beyond beautiful! The words really touch me and make me feel like i've got strength. Here are the lyrics from the chorus.
this is my fight song,
take back my life song
prove i'm alright song,
my powers turned on,
(starting right now) i'll be strong,
i'll play my fight song,
and i don't really care if nobody else believes,
because i've still got a lot of fight left in me.
Give this song a listen here.

Pinterest: I'm loving Pinterest and have really started using it more throughout June. I have a boards with posts from my blog, boards sharing my love for Victoria Beckham and even a board of yummy food! You can follow me here.
Simply Stats: I was introduced to this app by a girl called Becky during one of the bloggers chats. This app allows you to track your blog stats. It's kind of a condensed down version of Google Analytics and is actually understandable. If you struggle to understand Google Analytics i advise you to download this app.

So they are my June Favourites! Let me know what your favourites have been throughout June!

OOTD: Casual Stripes


I bought this black & white striped dress from New Look for a great price of £15, but unfortunately it's not available anymore. I have linked a similar one above for you guys though! My favourite thing about this dress is that it makes your eyes go funny if you're looking at it. I find it really amusing to be honest. Monochrome is always a winner in my eyes! I'm wearing this dress with a vintage cardigan that was once my Grandma's and i think it makes the outfit look a bit more casual! I'm loving pointed toe, ankle strap shoes at the moment, especially flats because i can't really go out in heels! They're so beautiful and perfect for the Summer! Jewellery is in the form of a variety of rings as a necklace would of been too much. I think this outfit would be great for a nice warm day either at a bbq or maybe at a picnic or something! I think my brightly coloured nails are perfect with this outfit as they add a pop of colour.
