So itâ€™s been a while since I did a monthly favourites – the last one was my April Faves. I somehow managed to miss May out but I guess I was a little bit busy being pregnant! July is getting well underway now and I didnâ€™t want to miss another month so here I am sharing my June faves with you.
1. Bump Selfies
So if you follow me on InstagramÂ you might have noticed a fair few bump selfies last month. Thatâ€™s because my little girl was due in June so I was at my biggest. I thought it was quite important to document the size of my bump so I could look back on it once the bubba was here. This was the last one I took before little one arrived, taken a week to the day before she was born. I love the dress in this picture, it’s a maternity one from Mothercare. Itâ€™s one I can continue to wear all summer long post-pregnancy so is a total winner.
2. Cooling Down
So June has been an absolute scorcher for us in the UK! Itâ€™s something we are totally not used to so was a bit of a shock to the system. I had to make sure I kept as cool and hydrated as possible so lots of cold drinks and ice lollies were consumed in June! I really enjoyed this mocktail whilst out and about with my lovely momma, an elderflower fizz.
3. Degustabox Yummyness
Regular readers will know I do a Degustabox review each month. Previous reviews can be found here: August,Â September,Â October,Â November,Â December and January,Â February and March. Iâ€™ll be posting my most recent review very soon, itâ€™ll be another joint one with April and May. Degustabox have very kindly given me a code* to get my lovely readers Â£5 off your first box, free delivery AND a bonus item!

Anyhoo, in the May box, I got these white chocolate KitKat bites. I like white chocolate and I like KitKats so I knew I would like these. And they certainly didnâ€™t disappoint! The only downside would be that there wasnâ€™t enough in the bag! I also enjoyed lots of other yummy items from the box which of course I will be sharing with you in the review.
4. Walks with the Hubster
So in June, my due date came and went and there was absolutely no sign of bubba. So I, like many women who go past their due dates, Googled ways to bring on labour. And one of them was going for walks. So the hubs and I went for several walks locally. Whilst none of them actually bought on labour, it was so nice to go on them. It was all about the quality time spent together, in the sun, with beautiful scenery. It made me realise that we really should do it more often, not just to bring on labour! I hope we can get out more than we have in the past with the little one in tow.
5. Fatherâ€™s Day Celebrations
So June saw Fatherâ€™s Day here in the UK. We werenâ€™t sure we would do much as I was so heavily pregnant, but we ended up booking a meal at a local restaurant – Blakeâ€™s at the Westmead Hotel. It included my family and the husband’s family and it was really nice being together. Itâ€™s much easier when we can all get together rather than having to do separate events. We enjoyed a 3-course meal each and of course I had to go for the chocolate brownie for pudding!
So these would have to be my June faves. What were you loving throughout the month?
Until next time…
