June Favourites

So we've made it six months into the year and in record time no less, during which my beauty favourites have been well and truly stacking up. I'll have a full rundown of my most used products from the first half of the year coming to you soon which will be covering all bases from skincare to make up, so for June's addition I kept it short and sweet - or at least that was the intention. Cue a twelve minute ramble including my thoughts on blue eyeliner, scalp exfoliation and the best way to tackle in-shower tanning!

This Week: The Wimbledon Dress

I can't really think of a better place to have spent one of the hottest days of the year so far on a rooftop terrace at Wimbledon. On Wednesday Suzie and I made our way through the (understandably sweaty) crowds to spend the day taking in some tennis. This was my second time at Wimbledon after last year's trip and I loved it even more. There's just something so British about sitting on Centre Court, Pimm's in hand cheering along with 15,000 people as a game reaches Match Point.

I don't think I've ever been as in love with an item of clothing as I am with this Topshop dress. White, floaty, crochet gorgeousness that I want to wear all day, every day. I also picked up a pair of the gladiator Heaven sandals on a whim during a last minute panic buy and ended up loving them just as much as well. They really are the comfiest sandals I own (of course, my grandma brain would go straight to wearability) although even after one day out in the Sun I've noticed some odd tan lines appearing across my feet!

It was a sad moment when we finally decided to leave - although we headed straight for Franco Manca and some Sourdough pizza goodness. Hopefully I'll be back again soon but until then I'll be watching Paul Bettany & Kirsten Dunst's version of Wimbledon on repeat - hands up, who else loves that film!?

#ICovetJune Round Up: Part Four

So we've finally reached the end of #ICovetJune and I'm actually going to be really sad to put the camera down and stop vlogging on a daily basis! The last week of June definitely had it's ups and downs, but after starting on a low point things just got better and better, including my 23rd birthday and seeing Taylor Swift at Hyde Park - one of my favourite moments so far this year!

Thank you all so much for your support during the month, I've had so much fun putting out more content than ever - although going through the YouTube audio library so many times nearly killed me! I'll definitely be vlogging on a more frequent basis from now on and might even revisit a daily vlogging stint again in a few months time!

Birthday Make Up!

Continuing with the Birthday themed posts comes a make up routine that I not only pulled out for the big day last week, but have been loving ever since. Making a change from my usual black winged liner I've been opting for a navy blue shade which, although subtle, really makes such an interesting difference, and of course a bold lip - it wouldn't have been right without one! There's always something a little bit more special about Birthday make up so I hope you like this one as much as I did!

This Week: Turning Twenty Three

Last week I turned the grand old age of twenty three and despite my sadness at no longer having my own Taylor Swift song to sing, ("I don't know about you, but I'm feeling twenty three" doesn't quite have the same ring to it..) I'm happy to say goodbye to another chapter of my life in order to start a new one.

The last twelve months have been some of the best and worst. I've been given amazing opportunities both in life and for ICT, met some incredible people and even made a new best friend, but at the same time I've also had to say goodbye to loved ones forever and faced challenging moments that I'm glad to put behind me.

This year is going to be all about making the most of things, saying yes more and enjoying life because, as we've all been recently been reminded by tragic events not only around the world but right here in the blogging community, it's too short and so precious!
