June has been an great month. Full of nice weekends and really gorgeous sunny weather. But with this lovely month I have actually struggled to pin down my favourite things. I have been writing my list of favourites every month for a whole year now. It crossed my mind to stop writing them but I like the way it records my life. So here are a few of my favourite things and they are a mixed bag
1l Wearing Converse
I have wanted my own pair of Converse trainers for a long time. I got a voucher for John Lewid for mt burthday and I used it to buy my first (expensive) pair if white converse trainers. When I was a teenager I wouldn’t have dreamed of wearing trainers. I thought they were ugly and for boys and I slipped around in all weathers in ballet pumps. I’m not saying I will never wear ballet pumps again but now I see the benefits of having proper shoes on your feet in certain sutuations. They are also so comfy and I also think they look really cool. I am embracing wearing my trainers and trying them with lots of different looks. So yes to wearing trainers.
2) Reading Jamaica Inn by Daphne Du Maurier
OK so I have become a bit obsessed with Daphne Du Maurier. I just think her books and imagination are amazing. She obviously had a love of Cornwall as this is also set there and follows Mary Yellan, a 23 year old girl from a quiet Cornish farm who’s mother dies. She makes a promise to her Mother that she would go stay with her Mothers sister Aunt Patience. But on going go her Aunt she discovers thar her Aunt has married a big scary brute called Joss Mervyn who runs the Jamaica Inn. The Inn however has no visitors and it is full of mystery and creepy corners. It’s a great story following the wreckers of Cornwall who wrecked ships to plunder their goods and smuggle them out. It’s full of darkness this book and I just loved every minute reading it.
3) Using Catastrophe Cosmetic
I love Lush. I trust them and I know that if my skin is lacking Lush has the solution. This month the solution has been Catastrophe Cosmetic fresh face mask. It’s made with blueberries and chamomile so its so soothing it really helps cool and calm my skin soothing the spotty areas as I am struggling with this article the moment. I use it 2 times a week and it keeps everything squeaky clean. The only downside is that it is a fresh face mask so it doesn’t last too long.
4) Watching The Wire
Yes The Wire. My husband and I have finally finished The Wire. This is TV series became our life last year but we had to take a break whilst we moved out of our house into the flood house. But now we have finished it and it is great. It’s not always been hard to watch and is full of drugs and crime and looks at the lives of some of the most wretched people in Baltimore. My favourite character was McNulty played by Dominic West. I just think West is a fantastic actor, (and pretty gorgeous), and the flawed character of McNulty the cop trying so hard to get the bad guys he compromises himself is just brilliant. And I did love the first series best eith Idris Elba as Stringer Bell. I will miss The Wire.
5) Eating Tartar Sauce
Yes I am wierd. I’ve tartare sauce at the moment. I think it is because of the baby I am craving very vinegary crisps and flavours and one of them is tartare sauce. I’m having it on a lot of food and my favourite way is with fish finger sandwiches. Cannot do wrong with fish fingers! So yes tartare sauce I love you.
