Chapter 7 of 12

"Fashion is the armour to survive the reality of everyday life." – Bill Cunningham

June seems to have sped by quite quickly, and I’m looking forward to July, but I have lots to reflect upon.

July in Bloom

July brings a burst of vibrant flowers in season, perfect for brightening up any space. Look out for sunflowers, daisies, and lilies in full bloom, adding a splash of colour and fragrance to gardens and homes alike. Hydrangeas are also at their peak, with their lush, voluminous clusters that come in stunning shades of blue, pink, and white. These beautiful blossoms make for fantastic bouquets and are ideal for any summer gathering or decoration.

Seasonal Food Delights

July is a fantastic month for fresh, seasonal food. It's prime time for berries – strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries are all at their sweetest and juiciest. Corn on the cob, courgette, and tomatoes are plentiful, perfect for barbecues and summer salads. Stone fruits like peaches, plums, and nectarines are also abundant, providing a sweet treat that’s both refreshing and nutritious. Whether you’re enjoying a backyard picnic or a casual dinner, make the most of these delicious seasonal offerings.

Summer Fashion and Beauty

Fashion in July is all about staying cool and looking chic. Think airy dresses, lightweight fabrics, and open-toe sandals. Flowy maxi dresses and breezy skirts are perfect for the heat, while straw hats and oversized sunglasses not only provide sun protection but also add a stylish touch. In beauty, it's all about a natural, dewy look. Opt for lightweight, breathable foundations, and add a touch of highlighter for that sun-kissed glow. Don't forget your SPF to protect your skin while enjoying the sunny days.

A Fabulous Start to the Month

At the beginning of the month, I had a fabulous time at Grantley Hall with Lubnar from Time to Bloom, where we enjoyed a talk from the founder Lucy Goff of Lyma. Lyma is known for its revolutionary approach to wellness and supplements, offering scientifically backed products that aim to optimise health and wellbeing. Their innovative formulas are designed to improve various aspects of health, from boosting immunity to enhancing mental clarity. We also learn all about their new Laser. 

A Stylish Day at Harvey Nichols

I had a fabulous day at Harvey Nichols Leeds where I got to experience their personal shopping service for occasion wear. We were lucky enough to try on lots of different outfits and get tips from their expert personal stylist. We also had our makeup done at Tom Ford and our hair styled, making it a truly luxurious and memorable day.

Father’s Day at The Abbey Inn, Byland

On Father’s Day, we headed to The Abbey Inn at Byland, one of my favourite restaurants known for serving the best roasts. I had roast beef, of course, and it was absolutely delicious. The Abbey Inn offers a cozy, inviting atmosphere with stunning views of the Byland Abbey ruins. Their menu is filled with locally sourced ingredients, making each dish a delightful culinary experience.

Charlotte Tilbury Event at Fenwick

I hosted an event with Charlotte Tilbury at Fenwick in York and we had the most amazing evening with the Charlotte Tilbury team. As guests arrived, I greeted them with no makeup on, and then the team created the most amazing masterpiece on my face. I got to experience some of their new products like the foundation stick, which I highly recommend. It gives a lovely dewy look. I also have a discount code below if you would like it.

A Day at Ascot with LK Bennett

Last week, I went to Ascot with LK Bennett and had a brilliant day. I haven’t been to Ascot for years, so it was great to go back and experience it all over again. It was fantastic to see the LK Bennett team, who are fabulous, and I got to wear a full LK Bennett outfit.

End of Term and Upcoming Plans

We are winding down now because it’s nearly the end of term for us, so there are lots of sports days, plays, and speech days coming up. In July, I’m looking forward to a family holiday where we can hopefully all switch off, relax a bit, and unwind. Over the summer, I have lots of little trips booked, and I will, of course, take my work with me as I work from home.
