These Are A Few Of My Favourite June Things....

I thought I'd start doing this post every month.....I had some fun doing it last month so I'm thinking....why not!   So I'm going to share with you the things I like every month.

Some months there might be more things, some less, some old, some new.....but anyway here is June. 

1.  I'm listening to Boys Don't Cry by Rumer.  Her beautiful cover version of Sara Smile by Hall & Oates is the bomb.

2.  I'm using loads of Rosehip Seed Lip Cream by Aesop.  I keep one of these tubes in the car and one in my really does keep dry lips at bay, and freakishly with all those essential oils it doesn't taste half bad....although I don't think it's meant for tasting!!

3.  I'm wearing my navy corduroy Stitch Detail Dress I purchased at Boden last season.  I love this dress, it is the most versatile item in my wardrobe.  I wear it down with a long sleeve T under it and a pair of ballet flats or Converse runners, or dress it up with a great bowed silk shirt. and a cute little pair of ankle boots.  Navy is such a versatile colour and does me more favours than black these days.

4.  Eating at Chez Dre in South Melbourne.  It has great coffee and I dream about the Caramalised Onion and Goats Cheese Tart with rocket.  One of my favourite little places.

5. I'm watching Stella.  I'm a huge fan of Ruth Jones, aka Nessa from Gavin & Stacey.  This series was shown in the UK earlier this year, but yet to hit Australian TV.  It's all about a quirky Welsh family living in a quirky little Welsh village....and I laughed and laughed and laughed.  Highly recommend and more than happy that a second series has been commissioned....they could not have possibly left the ending the way it was!!

6.  I'm dying for one of these necklaces from  JCrew, although they are a bit pricey for me....There is an Australian girl that does make similar items on Etsy, you can view her work here.

7.  I'm cooking from The Thrifty Kitchen by Suzanne & Kate Gibbs, mother and grand daughter of Margaret Fulton.  I was given this book as a gift a few years ago.  It's a useful resource in the kitchen although it maybe getting a little hard to find, but if you can, it's worth purchasing....The best ever meatloaf recipe is a winner.
