Crows, Doughnuts and Love Island – June Favourites

June has absolutely flown by!

There have been birthdays, kid’s parties, sprained ankles, fathers day, school visits, beach and park trips, many many meals out, too many BBQ’s and loads more that I’ve already forgotten. June has been jam-packed.

As fab as June was, I’m already look forward to a more relaxing July.

Here’s what’s brought me joy over the last month:


Good Reads

‘This is going to hurt’ by Adam Kay. Hilarious, sad and gives a shocking look into the other side of the NHS.


Park trips

We’re so lucky that we have such a beautiful park local to us. We’ve been there everyday for the last 4 days. They reopened the newly refurbished pool so we’ve been making the most of that too.

This Feta and sun-blushed tomatoes Salad Bowl from The Red Barn is the best salad I’ve had in a while. I need to go back soon and get my fix.


Interesting Angles

Forever exploring new ways of taking photos. Pretty happy with the way this turned out.


Love Island

Oh god, it’s so bad, it’s good! I’m addicted. If I’m not watching it, I’m listening to the podcast. If I’m all caught up, I’m left eagerly awaiting the next episode.


Space Buns

This has become a go to hair-style this summer. Quick and easy and makes me feel 10 years younger than I actually am lol.


Hocking’s Waffle range! 

I’m 90% sure these are a new thing as I can’t remember them having these cones last year. Pictured is the Original Waffle cone, they also have a Choc Waffle (so good) and a Honeycomb Waffle (yet to try).

    Ohhh I have eaten far too many Hockings during June! Haven’t had the waffle cone though that does sound DELISH.

    I loved Victoria Park when I was growing up, especially summers at the pool. Do they still have a slide? So lucky to have such lovely places on our doorstep xx
