Summer Favourites 2015

Hi everyone, oh wow I can't believe I'm writing my Summer favourites already, I swear, doing these seasonal favourites posts really seems to make the year go by a lot faster, or is that just me!?  I'd better get thinking about my Autumn favs as that'll be coming around soon too lol
Ok, so enough rambling and on with the things that I've been loving over the last few months.

So to start off with, I finally got my hair cut!  I'd been wanting it done for absolutely ages and I finally got it done at Wild Hairdressers by the lovely Rachel back in May.  When my hair gets to a certain length I tend to just get really fed up with it, it gets in the way all the time and drives me crazy, so by this point I was almost ready to chop it all off myself!  I had about 4-5 inches off the length and slightly curved around my face.  I'm still really happy with it although amazingly I think it's grown a couple of inches already, so I may have to have a trim again soon.  I'm not one for fussing with my hair, I don't have the time and no matter what I try and do with it, nothing seems to work, so the thing I love about this style on me is that I can just brush and go :-)

I love GIF posts, I think they're hilarious and I just couldn't help wanting to do my own.  The first one I came up with was my Pet Hates post back in May and then I wrote my All Men Are Beasts post about a month ago.  I just find them so, so funny and it's just nice to do a light-hearted post ever now and again, so I've really been enjoying them too.

I wanted to include this card in my favourites post this time because it was given to me by one of my best friends last month and it really meant a lot.  They wrote some really lovely things in there, I even had a tear or two while reading it, and it was just such a lovely wonderful thought, so thank you FB, you're the best xxx

Ok you might think why am I adding this as a favourite!  But, I just love it, I've been putting it on everything lately and it's SO good!  I have it on toast, scones, it's gorgeous on croissants too.  You could also have it with pancakes, muffins, crumpets, dip strawberries in it or of course have it on it's own with a very large spoon! :-) Yum
I love re-watching old favourite tv shows and over the past few months I've been really enjoying Roswell High.  It's a show that I used to love years ago and I hadn't seen it for a really long time, so I thought I'd re-watch them all.  It's basically about 3 aliens (in human form) that go to school and live a life in Roswell New Mexico, and their 3 human friends.

Of course there's romance and lots of action, some really great gripping story lines and a good bit of eye candy.

It stars the extremely gorgeous (but slightly younger) Jason Behr and the very talented Katherine Heigl.

I adore notebooks, the prettier the better.  I use them such a lot of the time as well, for notes, lists and of course my blog planner for when I'm working on posts etc (which you can read about here).  I bought the beautiful rose collage book (with the bicycle, bird and Eiffel tower on) from ebay for about £2.75, they also do an A4 size and I love that it has pink lines on the pages, so cute.
The other collage book I bought from Tesco but I've had that for quite a while, it's still one of my favourites though, and the sweet floral one in the middle is also from Tesco and I only bought that a few weeks ago.  I'm not too sure what to use this one for yet, but no doubt I'll come up with a plan soon, just so I can use it.

I have always really loved the Candy Rose collection at Dunelm Mill and I've had the lovely mug and a bowl (which I use when I'm baking) for quite a while but a few weeks ago, the mug got chipped when it was being washed up.  I was so sad because I thought Dunelm had stopped selling them but after a quick search on their website I spotted it, and added it along with a few other bits to the cart.  I love the mug so much I wasn't taken any chances in case this one got broke as well, so I ordered 2!  I also got the pasta bowl and this beautiful tray as I thought it would be an ideal photographing background (blogger-brain)!  I then placed the order and within a day it was ready to pick up at my local store.  While I was in the shop the next day, I also spotted these beautiful pale pink and vintage pink artificial roses, they were only £2.49 each.  I've been looking for something like this for literally the last couple of years!  So I was thrilled with these, I think they'll look gorgeous in photos and in my shabby chic inspired bedroom too :-)

I must have been on Google Play nearly every day over the past month.  I've been obsessed lately with various different apps but mainly with photo editing ones.  I've found some really great ones that I love to use, if you follow me on Instagram you would probably have seen some of the pictures I've been playing around with.  I'm also going to be doing a post within the next few weeks about my favourite apps and which ones I find the best for all my blogging needs.

For a very long time, I've been designing and making greeting cards, it's something I really enjoy doing and it's also part of my job but I haven't done it regularly for quite a long while.  I just wanted to add it in as a 'favourite' this time because I feel like I've really re-discovered cardmaking and I really want to get back in to doing it a lot more regularly.  If you keep a look out for the new Making Cards Christmas Special this year, you'll see the cards I was working very hard on about a month ago and I hope to do a more in-depth post about it at some point too, as it's a side of my life that I haven't really mentioned on my blog before but I would like to share with you all.

This is just a little extra I wanted to add in, I found this gorgeous little silver bow ring while I was in Claire's Accessories back in June, when I was out shopping with my friend and I was so pleased as I've been looking for one like this for ages.  I think it was only about £1.50 and it fits perfectly too, I'm so happy with it :-)

Lastly I've been loving finding new music on YouTube recently and I have stumbled on some amazingly talented people lately, one in particular and I have been listening to his music Non-Stop!!  But I'm not going to tell you who they are at the moment or add any links, because I will be doing a whole post about my Favourite New Music within the next few weeks, to tell you all about them in detail, because I'm loving it! So keep a look out for that too :-)

Until Next Time Stay Happy
