My Month Of June – I want To Thank You All

June was a really crap month for me if I’m honest. You may have noticed the randomness of the blog posts and me being pretty quite online.

I don’t have a lot of fashion extras to share with you other than these shorts that I was super happy with that I bought in FandF in June.


My month of June. What I'm wearing, what I'm up to!


I so much prefer smart shorts over casual and these Navy ones have been worn a lot the past few weeks! We can’t complain about the weather, can we?!!  Can I just say, I’ve been living in the Vionic sandals too! So comfortable. You can catch the post about them here.

The reason for the silence




My mum passed away on June 3rd. I’m not going to lie it’s been tough. I had been nursing her the last couple of months at her home.

I would often reach into the blogosphere to remove myself from the situation that I was in and I can’t tell you all what a help that was. The blogosphere can be the greatest escape! So you were all helping me without knowing! And I thank you all very much for that.

I’ve only managed to pop home a couple of times since for a couple of days, and therefore I’m super behind on my posts, but boy there’s a lot of new content coming your way.

I’ve lost my biggest critique, my honest best friend, but it’s time to dust myself down and get on with life. Mum wouldn’t want it any other way.


Something new to try!


boots no7 line correcting serum

I’ve been sent a prescription! I’m super looking forward to trying this new anti ageing serum from boots. I’m a huge fan of no7’s Perfect and Protect. Have you tried it?

This is the new Line Correcting Serum. Targeted to visibly reduce deep lines and wrinkles in one week. I haven’t applied this yet, I will be starting tonight and will share the results with you in Julys catch-up post. I’ve actually had this serum waiting for some time because I’ve been trialling another brand for you. That post will be up in the next week or so!

I like to try new brands on their own for around four weeks to get the true results for you.

Have you tried the new IGTV yet?

I’ve just filmed my first little intro about the no7 cream. I haven’t published it yet and I’m hoping it’s pretty easy! Any tips welcome! If we’re not connected on Instagram yet, you can find me here.


So that’s my month of June..


I’m sorry it’s a bit short and sweet this month. Things will start to get back to normal again now. I’m looking forward to getting back to normal! Before I go here’s my ootd



More shorts! Best thing for this weather! Have a great July everyone!

    So very sorry for your loss.
    My mum passed away last summer (I had been her caregiver as well), and I’m not sure there’s ever a way to prepare oneself for that life event.

  18. July 6, 2018 / 7:01 am

    My thoughts are with you Laurie, been there and it’s hard. But once you recover just a little from the raw grief always remember to smile at the beautiful memories you made together. Pamela xx

    I’m so sorry to hear about your Mum passing away, Laurie. As I’ve lost both my parents, I know how painful it can be, and you need to allow yourself the time to grieve. Sending you a virtual hug! xxx

    I’m so sorry to hear about your mum. It’s so hard to lose a parent. It’s good to see you back and getting back into a routine, it’s never the same but it helps to go back to some normalcy. Take care. Sending hugs!

  21. I’m desperately sorry to hear of your loss Laurie. I have been thinking of you so often but I hadn’t realised she had passed. My dear nan is dying from stomach cancer. She has been a second mum to me and at the moment I have put my emotions in a box – it’s just too dark to cope with right now. I know death is part of life, but it is unbearably hard to cope with. You are such a lady Laurie – your mum must be so proud of you. Sending you love xxxx

    So sorry to hear of your loss Laurie, youโ€™re doing so well and your Mum would be very proud. X sending hugs to you from Ibiza. X super outfit too Hun xx Jacqui mummabstylish

    Yes, I know it’s been hard for you but you handled everything so well and that poignant handhold speaks a thousand words, my sweet lady.
    On a lighter note, is that your Acer in the background? Palmatum? It’s beautiful, what green fingers you have.
    Hugs, x.
