June Favourites

June was a busy busy month for me, lots of adventuring about, not so much buying, but what a month!

Firstly, my new blog layout! I had wanted to redesign my blog for the longest time, but it isn't something I know too much about, so I was super thrilled to buy this template and modify it. It's so very me, and so cute!

EDIT - While the quality of their clothes isn't in doubt, I cannot encourage anyone to buy from Scarlett & Jo or support their business for ethical reasons.


The Scarlett & Jo meet and greet with Georgina Grogan. This was the first event I've attended as a blogger, and it was so fun, and so lovely to meet other plus size bloggers. Plus get the chance to try on so many of Scarlett & Jo's gorgeous designs. I wrote a full blog post you can read here.

 
Barry M Hi Shine Lips

Embracing a more natural lip colour is a bizarre one for me. I've always struggled to find colours I felt suited me, preferring blue toned purples and reds and not much else. At the Scarlett & Jo event we were given goody bags containing a variety of Barry M makeup, and for me, that included 2 different lip colours. The left a more coral colour, and the right a pale brown (I loathe to call it nude, it's only nude if you are white, and I hate that assumption from makeup companies! Internalised racism at work) Barry M's lip products are really moisturising, which is such an important thing for me, as well as being cruelty free.


Stu picked me up this adorable cacti terrarium from B&Q. He's a sweetie!

Alice & You Tie Dye Smock Dress £30

I love tie dye, and this dress is just adorable. It's much shorter than I would usually dare to wear, but I am getting braver every day!

Murderofgoths is just ridiculously talented, and it was such an honour for her to pick me as one of the plus size bloggers she created art of recently!

BloodyMary Metal Sleep Tight Ring £65

BMM held an amazing flash sale in early June and I couldn't resist this ring. I got the chunky version because I thought the girls version would be too dainty for me, and I was right, it's lush!

Scarlett & Jo Teal Blue Fit & Flare Mini Dress

This was the only thing I was able to buy at the Scarlett & Jo event, but I fell in love immediately. The colour, the cut, the lace, I could not resist.

VoodooVixen Romina Dress £54.99*

This dress. Oh this dress. Proper photos and a full review will be coming, it's bloody beautiful. The cut is beautiful, and those cut outs on the chest are so unusual and lovely. I instantly felt incredible when I put this on.

The Serpent's Club Fiji £25+

I couldn't resist a daintier piece from The Serpent's Club, and was thrilled to get this ring thrown in as well. I actually ordered this in May, but it was June when it arrived because all pieces are made to order. I love the mix of delicate with the spikes.

What did you get this month that you love?

Much love,
