Welcome June: Embracing Summer and All It Brings




"June is the gateway to summer." – Jean Hersey


Hello, June! It's hard to believe the warmer days are finally upon us. It seemed like the sun was never going to come out, but here we are, ready to embrace the sunshine and everything this beautiful month has to offer. There's an air of excitement and renewal, as nature and fashion both bloom in vibrant colours and fresh styles. 


Seasonal Flowers


June is a magical month for flowers. Gardens and parks are in full bloom, showcasing the stunning beauty of peonies, roses, and lavender. These flowers not only brighten up our surroundings but also fill the air with their intoxicating scents. If you're looking to add some fresh blooms to your home, June is the perfect time to indulge in these seasonal favourites.


Seasonal Food


June also brings a bounty of delicious seasonal foods. Strawberries, cherries, and asparagus are at their peak, making it a great time to enjoy fresh, local produce. Whether you're planning a picnic, a barbecue, or just a simple meal at home, incorporating these seasonal delights into your menu will surely add a burst of flavour to your dishes.


Latest Beauty Products


As we step into June, it's also time to refresh our beauty routines. This month, I'm excited about the latest skincare products designed to protect and nourish our skin during the sunnier days. Lightweight sunscreens like these ones from Heliocare, hydrating serums, and vitamin C-infused creams are all on my radar. These products not only help protect against sun damage but also keep our skin glowing and healthy.


Latest Fashion Trends


Fashion in June 2024 is all about light, airy fabrics and vibrant colours. Think flowy dresses, pastel shades, and bold prints. I'm particularly in love with the new collections from Hobbs, Lk Bennett and Phase Eight various designers that feature romantic, feminine details. Whether you're dressing up for a special occasion or keeping it casual for a day out, there's something for everyone this season.




A Magical Trip to Lisbon


May was a whirlwind, with a highlight being a trip to Lisbon for the first May bank holiday. It was our first time leaving the children for three days, and it was absolutely amazing. Lisbon is truly magical, with its stunning architecture and delicious food. From exploring the historic Alfama district to enjoying a tram ride through the city, every moment was memorable. If you're a tourist in Lisbon, don't miss out on visiting the Belém Tower, tasting the famous pastéis de nata, and taking a stroll along the beautiful Tagus River. The city's vibrant culture and picturesque scenery make it a must-visit destination.




A Night to Remember: The Summer Ball


I also had the pleasure of attending a summer ball, wearing an absolutely stunning dress from Phase Eight. The evening was perfect, with drinks outside in the gorgeous weather, followed by dinner and dancing. My dress, part of the new @PhaseEightCollection, featured semi-sheer detailing across the V-neckline and sleeves, along with a glamorous tie back. I paired it with nude heels and long drop earrings for an elegant look. Head to my stories to find the link!




RHS Chelsea Flower Show


This month, I was invited by RHS to attend the Chelsea Flower Show and create content for this fabulous event. I go every year, and I absolutely love it. The atmosphere was wonderful, filled with the scent of beautiful flowers and the buzz of excited visitors. This year, I did quite a bit of celebrity spotting and wore a gorgeous Hobbs dress. RHS Chelsea is a world-renowned flower show, showcasing stunning garden designs, floral exhibits, and the latest trends in gardening. It's a must-visit for any garden enthusiast or anyone looking to be inspired by nature's beauty.




Event with LK Bennett and Harrogate Spring water


I also attended an event with LK Bennett and Harrogate Spring water at the Ivy in York. We had a private room where actor and writer Natalie Anderson spoke about sensible drinking, especially with the summer months approaching. We tried delicious cocktails made with Harrogate spring water and enjoyed amazing food from the Ivy. The LK Bennett team also presented their Royal Ascot collection, featuring elegant dresses perfect for the races. Royal Ascot has a strict dress code, with ladies required to wear formal daywear, including a hat or headpiece, and gentlemen needing to don a suit with a tie. Trying on the dresses and creating content was a fantastic experience. Thank you so much to LK Bennett and Harrogate Springwater for inviting me.




New Harrogate Accessories Store


I was also invited to the opening of the new Accessorize store in Harrogate. Meeting the fabulous PR team and exploring the new collection was a nostalgic experience, reminding me of my teenage years. I know my soon-to-be teenage girls would love Accessorize, although I'm a bit scared to introduce it to them as they will want to buy everything! The team kindly gifted me some of the new collection, which I'll be showcasing on my Instagram over the next few weeks.


Busy Half Term and Exciting June Plans


We just finished half term and had an amazing week visiting family and friends, trying to switch off. Looking forward to June, I have many exciting plans, including a trip to Grantley Hall, trips to London, and a visit to Harvey Nichols. I'm also hosting an event with Charlotte Tilbury and Fenwick on the 19th of June. There are still a few tickets available, and I'll put the link here in case you would like to attend.
