All the things I have loved this month…
I cannot start this months dossier without mentioning the BEAUTIFUL British weather; WFH has never felt so good. Lunchtimes sprawled on the grass, and have even treated myself to a light summer tan. It also gave me a chance to try out my new La Roche de Posey SPF. I cannot recommend it enough; has smooth finish and is oil free. Try it here!
This month I have devoured fiction. Starting with Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens; a painful yet beautiful tale of Kya, a girl abandoned in the swamps of Carolina. Owens paints a such rich landscape, you can along feel the humid air pressing against your skin and the crickets singing in the dark. I also roared through Sally Rooney’s Normal People and Conversations with Friends; both novels exploring love, relationships, youth, sex, friendship and intimacy.
My new girl crush is Mrs Maisel from The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, the most fabulous TV show on Amazon Prime. I am 3 years late to the party, but she is now an idol. Glamourus, strong, independent and funny; Mrs Maisel is one of the best characters on the small screen. Pay great attention to the fashion, make-up and interiors; they are divine. Another Amazon Prime gem is Dating Amber; a film about a a closeted gay teen and his lesbian counterpart who pretend to be a couple to avoid suspicion. It’s devastating, funny, emotional and so filled with love; a perfect Sunday evening film.
I have also rekindled a new love; the almond croissant. So, so in love! They were a vice when I lived in Sydney. A wonderful man used to make and sell them at my local market, and every Sunday I would drag myself from my bed, grab a croissant and a coffee and bathed my face in the morning sun. My mum bought me one this morning and now I am head over heels!
And finally, I have found the perfect white shirt. I personally do not think one can have enough white shirts, but this one is my new number one. It’s oversized, crisp white with balloon sleeves and a gorgeous scollop cuffs; perfect over shorts, tucked into your Levi’s or thrown over leggings for chic, casual look. I so am tempted to buy one in every colour!
June has been a joy, and I cannot wait to see what July brings.
Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
