Life Lately | June 2017 edition

Recently I've been...

Sewing 50 meters of bunting - another wedding DIY to tick off the list! I'm not sure how long it took in total but I finished it one Friday I had off from work after a six hour stint, it did get a bit repetitive but I also loved the quality time in my with the radio and sewing machine. #simplepleasures

Looking after my skin, I've never been one for a particular skincare routine, but seeing as my skin and I haven't been getting along to well recently I figured it was time to do something about it. I headed straight for Caroline Hiron's blog for a good read as I've heard all the beauty bloggers recommending it. My new routine involves exfoliating with Liz Earl (I've used the cleanser for a while but never bothered with the exfoliator, oops), the Origins Clear Improvement charcoal face mask twice a week and moistuirising at night. It hasn't been long but I'm starting to see improvements - if anyone knows the magic secret for getting rid of under eye circles though, I'd be all ears!

Crocheting a corner to corner cushion. You might have seen this one on my instagram as I've been working on it for a little while - crochet time is at a premium at the moment. It's my first corner to corner project and I used this tutorial by the brilliant Bella Coco to learn the stitch. Full details coming soon to a blog near you.

Spending all my free time in the garden, because it's been to beautiful not to! Not much actual gardening has taken place, between avoiding the weeding and waging a war on our ever-hungry slug population, I've mainly just been sitting with my notebook or crochet, bliss.

What have you been up to this month?
