Blog Reads of June

Well, June has been a complete wash-out hasn't it?! The weather has been beyond terrible and I'm literally praying to see a bit of sunshine at some point in July *fingers crossed* . It's been an up and down month, mentally, not brilliant, but I'm hoping things are on the up and July will be a great month for me.
Blog Reads of June


As always, I've been scouring Bloglovin' and reading countless blog posts, but here are my favourite reads in June -


Let's face it, we all need to do a hell of a lot more to help save our planet and live more sustainable lives. Lily has listed some easy and essential ways that you could do to help with our mission to help our planet. Whether it's turning the tap off when brushing our teeth, refusing to buy wet wipes, recycling or even reusing water bottles, doing all these things that Lily has listed can really help. Imagine if we all did this, imagine the huge impact it would have...
 
 
 
Remember those days when you were sat in a Science lesson in school and counting down the days when you could finally leave your school days behind and become an adult. Wow, if only we knew back then what life in our twenties would be like now. Abigail has summed this up so well. Back then, we all looked forward to the day when we could go to Tesco Express to buy a bottle of vodka without being ID'd or you will have a full time income straight after entering adulthood. Boy, how wrong was we. Abigail is right, in your twenties, you don't have your shit together, and that's ok. We're all just going with the flow and things will happen naturally.
 
 
 
3) How To Find Time To Read | The European Closet
I've always loved reading, remember those Jacqueline Wilson books? God I loved them books in primary school. However, I'm struggling to find the time to sit down with a cuppa and a good book these days. Life does get in the way of that. Rita has come up with some ways to easily reintroduce reading into our everyday life. From setting ourselves reading goals, creating reading routines and choosing books we love, it can be so simple to just bring reading back into your life. I've tried these tips from Rita and I have now made sure I've set myself time for reading everyday, thank you Rita!
 
 
 
I have this problem on a daily basis, I want to shoot photography outside but - oh I have no one to help me! I would never have the guts to go outside with my phone and tripod and shoot pictures of myself in random parts of my home town. Emily has written some much needed advice for us blogger's who are in the same situation. With me, it would make me feel self conscious shooting outside on the street, that fear of people staring at me as they tried to walk past me. But reading Emily's post has made me feel better about wanting to attempt to venture outside on my own!
 
 
 

I have to admit, I am a big procrastinator. I lack motivation to get things ticked off on my to do list sometimes, I annoy myself sometimes! However, after reading this post from Victoria, there are definitely some things I will take on board to help me get rid of my procrastinating ways. From remaining as organised as possible, even when other things crop up to mismanage your day to prioritising our tasks and reassessing what's more important, this is a brilliant post for all those procrastinators out there like myself.
 
 
 
I wanted to include this post from Maria as 1) She's one of my favourite blogger's EVER and 2) If you haven't had a bra fitting yet, then you need to ASAP! I remember when I first went to have my bra measured, it was at the same store as Maria went to, Boux Avenue. Anyway, when the girl measured me, I was aghast when she said what size bra I should be wearing, I was WAY OFF! That's the thing, you should never rely on your mother to just "guess" your boob size in Tesco by putting the bra up against your chest and hoping for the best. Like Maria, I never felt the need to get measured, but it's something that she is encouraging all us ladies to do and we should all take note!
 
 
 
I adore the honesty from Elin in her post. Life can definitely get a bit too overwhelming for us all sometimes and it's important to address that. It's important that we take ourselves away from things so we can recharge our batteries and give ourselves a little self care. Elin was really brave to publish this post and I'm so glad she did! I'm sure this post will help others out there who are struggling with life and just need to accept that they need to take a break.
 
 
 
With Summer (hopefully) arriving, we're all going to the high street or scouring online for some swimwear. I won't lie to you, I hate buying swimwear. It's such a nightmare trying to decipher what type of bikini or swimsuit suits my figure. With me being incredibly self conscious about my CF tummy and being big chested, it's really difficult to choose the right swimwear to suit my body type. But thanks to Michelle, she's written such a wonderful guide on what swimwear to buy according to your body type. This post is definitely a bikini bible!
 
 
 
If you're not planning on taking a Summer holiday, then, like me, you'll want your body, legs in particular to look like you've just come back from 2 weeks in Santorini. Em has written this tanning bible about what the best tanning products are for this Summer. The tanning sheet she has listed is an absolutely genius idea! I know that in the past, I've woken up to my sheets being caked in fake tan and it's highly annoying! Mousse tanning products are my go to tanners because I don't get a patchy result afterwards than if I use water based products. Read this post as Em has you covered with what tanning products to buy!
