My June photo diary

Pastel blog photo diary

Lately I have been peppering my instagram with snapshots from our little outdoors adventures and these yellow cottage climbing blooms are so gorgeous. Hands up who else is on rose alert this time of year?

Ours bloomed a beautiful orange but we will have to be patient to see any pinks come through.

This watch from Hypergrand* is just stunning! I love the rose gold detailing and dove grey strap. It’s one of the most beautiful things I have seen. It adds a touch of chic and sophistication to every outfit.

Cutie patootie photobombing my pyjama picture! I love candid snaps like these, they are so heartwarming and capture little boy’s personality so well; I’m thinking of putting together a little medley of Oscar’s funny moments, let me know if you’d like to see. Look at those chubby cheeks!

We went shopping and I tried the new Krispy Kreme, the Hershey’s cookies and cream ring edition… it was gorgeous! I only wish I’d bought ten the other doughnut is for Oscar I swear. I also found this beautiful dusky pink print dress in H&M for £12.99 and the Sugarhill Boutique number on ebay.

My home in the summer is rainy, leafy and green. I adore the shape of this skirt, I feel like a 19th century girl! See the few heads of wild garlic behind me? Lately I have experienced one of the worst blips and it really made me think about how much I talk about it on my blog. I give it a backseat because I don’t want it to define me, but it affects me so much; I want to raise awareness of how ill it makes you feel, so that you are paralysed, like travel sickness but ten times worse. Feeling so ill it terrifies you. You can’t move or close your eyes for feeling unwell and you have no energy to speak. I’m grateful for the good days, the ‘feeling near normal’ days where I might embark with Oscar on small big adventures.

I bought these Disney Marie pjs on meeting the wonderful Severina at Sweet Strawberries for the first time! Oscar nodded off so we went to browse Primark while it rained outside… and I couldn’t not take these home with me, Marie is the cutest character and I’m loving the new Primark Disney pieces.

Lunch for one meant noodles and marble cake, when Oscar was off at his library session. I found this adorable cat mug in New Look, it’s big so perfect for hot, steaming noodles or soup on a rainy day! 

Maybe our small adventures will seem big to Oscar. Is your June as rainy as mine? We often keep a fire going in the mornings, cold is the summer we have at the moment haha ♡Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my last post PS you can find my previous photo diary here!

    Gorgeous post as ever Elizabeth, I love your genuine writing style and pink hued photos. Oscar is such a cutie, I enjoy hearing about him on your blog. I like that long blue skirt, its perfect for summer. I recently went to Primark too, I’m loving their range of loungewear as well. That cat mug is adorable and perfect for noodles or soup. Have a fabulous Sunday! πŸ™‚ xx

    The yellow roses are beautiful! I have a rose bush outside my bedroom window (deep pink roses) and I love it when it blooms every summer.

    Hope you're starting to feel a bit better now. πŸ™‚
