6 Things That Are Making Me Happy This Month: June



1. Chanel Flowers - I bought these lovely red, white and pink roses in Waitrose and decided to display them in a Chanel paper bag that I had on my dressing table. I think it makes a really nice display in our bedroom and looks lovely next to my Chanel No.5 Print on our fireplace

2. Hummingbird Bakery - I am a little bit obsessed with Hummingbird Bakery. There is one near our flat so on the weekend I am always finding an excuse to go there! As if the cakes weren't good enough how cute is the pink cup? My faves are the frosted brownie (uh-mazing) and the red velvet cake. Take a look at their website here to see where your nearest one is and check out the cakes :) yummy

3. Pink Docs - I'd been looking for a pair of pink docs but didn't want the fuchsia ones as they're a bit bright for me. I found out they did some baby pink patent ones a few years ago and fell in love but unfortunately I was a bit late to the party! Luckily I tracked down a brand new pair in my size on Ebay...fate! I have teeny tin feet so can buy the children's shoes which means they're much cheaper. These are perfect for trips to Camden in the summer

4. Brandon Flowers - I am loving Brandon Flowers new album The Desired Effect. I am also a little bit obsessed with him (how can one man be so good looking?! Is he even human?). Me and Olly went to see him on his UK tour at the end of last month at Brixton Academy. It was amazing. If you're a fan of The Killers but haven't heard his solo stuff then go listen, you won't be disappointed

5. Picnic Basket - One thing I love about summer is picnics so I was thrilled to find this super cute fruity picnic basket on sale in House of Fraser. I now just need the weather to warm up a little bit so we can use it, bring on the prosecco and cocktail sausages (Quorn, of course ;) ). You can find the picnic basket here

6. Japanese Kit Kats - I have recently re-kindled my love for Japanese Kit Kats. They have loads of crazy flavours like green tea, strawberry cheesecake and banana (I still haven't dared to try the chilli one!). Unfortunately you can't buy these in your local Tesco, but the amazing Tofu Cute have a great selection, I think I want everything from this website!

What's been making you happy this month? I'd love to know, let me know in the comments below :)

  4. I love doc martens! I used to have a black floral pair which I loved so much as they were so comfortable, but I left them at an ex-boyfriend's house one time and never got them back. The pink ones are so cute and I love the more muted shade. I love the idea of having picnics in the park , definitely going to do that this year in the few sunny days that we have :).

    1. Aw that's such a shame :( I think they can make any outfit look super cool! Hopefully you can get another pair. I hope there's some sunny days soon so I can have a picnic it's just so gloomy in London today! x

  5. The pink docs are gorgeous. I bought a pair of black ones in the Christmas sales a few years ago and really should wear them more! I bought the ones with the really big eyelets though and you have to use ribbon which was maybe a mistake as I think I'd prefer proper laces :/
    Love Hayley,
