I know everyone says this but I actually can't believe we are in June?! Can someone please tell me where the time as gone because the last couple of months as honestly flown by! I love the idea behind this series because it's similar to a favourites but I feel like it's a little more personal & you get to find out a little bit about me & what I've been doing the past week or so. This post is inspired by Georgina from http://www.babyrebelblog.com/ & I thought it was such a fantastic idea I had to do it myself! Make sure you check out Georgina's blog, it's incredible & Georgina is just so lovely & down to earth!
If I'm being honest I haven't been reading too much recently just not because I don't enjoy reading but purely because I haven't had the time too. One of my goals for this month is to actually find a small amount of time every day to read. But anyways, I've been slowly getting through 'Sins Of Father' by Fleur Beale, which I mentioned more in detail in my Love List: April 2016 blogpost. I'm really enjoying the book so far & I definitely recommend to everyone. It's a great example of what can happen when power falls into the wrong hands.
Lavendaire Lifestyle is my current favourite podcast & is what I have been listening to for the past month or so. I enjoy listening to Aileen's podcasts either when I'm getting ready in the morning or while I'm doing my evening skincare routine. I find Aileen just so positive & uplifting & it's the same with all her content. If you are interested in checking out her podcast maybe you'd be more interested in her YouTube channel or her blog!
Smoothies as been a current go to breakfast for me over the past couple of weeks. They keep me full for longer than what anything else does & it is super light! A standard smoothie for me is generally almond milk, raspberries, blueberries, a banana, good green stuff powder & chia seeds. This is pretty basic & is my go to smoothie but sometimes I will mix it up depending on what fruit I have at home.
That I should really go & make myself some lunch. It's nearly 2PM & I haven't had anything to eat since breakfast & I think it's safe to say that I'm just a little hungry!
Grey Anatomy is back & so is my love for Dr. Jackson! If you don't watch Grey Anatomy you're seriously missing out! I love the show.
Since I've become gluten, wheat, soy & diary free I've found myself spending a lot more time in the kitchen. Whether that is actually cooking, looking in cookbooks or even meal planning. I've really enjoyed being a lot more creative in the kitchen & having to think outside the box. Keep an eye out for a few of my favourite recipes.
LOOKING FORWARD TO
Definitely my little sisters birthday! I can't believe that my baby sister is going to be 15!
This might be a little odd but I've really been loving the weather that Nelson has been providing! Although it is a little bit chilly in the mornings & the evenings, during the day has been absolutely stunning. We've had blue skies & sunshine for the majority of winter so far. We've had a few rainy days but not has many has we would have normally had at this time of the year! I am definitely looking forward to summer though!
I think it's safe to say that I'm constantly learning especially because I'm studying. But studying aside I've been extending my knowledge on WordPress & I have to thank Lena from www.lenatalksbeauty.com for all her tips & tricks! Lena & I have been emailing each other back & forth & I'm incredibly grateful for all her tips & tricks.
Desi Perkins & her gorgeous face. I do follow Desi on all her social media & if you have no idea who I'm talking about, Desi is a queen! Desi is so down to earth & just so real. Oh & we can't forget about her YouTube channel, it's honestly the next level. I'm constantly learning new things from her videos & let's be honest, she slays at everything, she's a beauty queen!
