It really feels like yesterday that I shared the wonderful goodies that was in last months box, which you can take a little look here. This months box is all about recreating the beautiful and sophisticated styling of French beauty with hints of summer on the Mediterranean coast.

Here’s all the exciting items that you can get in the…

LARITZY COSMETICS Shade Stick – A bronzer on a stick, I was actually surprised by the dark colour of this, put its perfect to add a healthy glow to your skin and can also be used a contour stick and I was amazed that it didn’t feel heavy on my skin compared to what I expected cream contours to feel, you see them all over Instagram and they just look heavy but this is lovely and whats perfect is that its also cruelty free which is a plus in my book.

MONU SKIN Eye Cool Gel – This Cool Gel has been a godsend, Since we gave up Robins dummy shes been up and down most nights, which means we lacked sleep, it says on the directions to rub under the eye to help reduce the morning puffiness and its honestly helped big time with the child induced lack of sleep, the product has such a subtle but fresh scent to it and I am going to purchase more in the future!

NIP + FAB Glycolic Scrub Fix – I am always very anxious when it comes to face scrubs, my skin can be so temperamental so I was a little worried about using this but surprisingly it isn’t as harsh as I expected it to be there are of course a little warning on it to stop if there are any irritations but its left my skin feeling all smooth and smells lovely when you rub it in.

NOVEX Mystic Black Deep Hair Mask – Much like facial scrubs, anything that goes onto my hair always worries me as my hair can be really greasy even after a day but this was lovely, it did make my hair lack volume, which is funny as I spent most of my teen-hood wishing I didn’t have frizzy hair to now wishing I had more volume and bounce but this was really nice, I can see it being something that I will continue to use until I finish it.

WILKINSON SWORD Intuition f. a. b. Razor – A razor is one thing I always fail to buy whenever I go shopping, so having one in the June box is fantastic and now I can stop using my husbands haha, nothing really special to say about it other than I’m happy I got it! Gotta get those legs out for summer… or not..

I adored this months box, I feel like theyre getting better and better with each one they send out and I love how they have little themes each month and the little sneak peak for next month looks like its all about the beach and I cannot wait!

Cake Cake Cake, who doesn’t like a little bit of cake for a special occasion? Normally cake is saved for birthdays but who’s to say you cannot have some fun on other days too and with Bakerdays you get that right through your letterbox.

Bakerdays themselves is a British based company just on the edge of the fantastic Sherwood Forrest that have over the course of years supplied personalized cakes and biscuits for all sorts of things including companies, so if you ever need to get yourself some cookies with your name on it, these are the places to go, but I am here to talk about the wonder that is a cake through your letterbox, perfectly sized for two people, however we have managed to share it out with everyone in the family.

There is a little selection of styles of the cake sponge itself that you can choose, I picked the basic one and completely forgot my husbands love for lemon cake so when he bit into it he was slightly disappointed at the lack of flavor but that was purely my fault when selecting, plus I don’t think his taste buds are working as when I tried it I could taste the vanilla in the sponge. What is also great is that they have a diary free and a gluten free option when ordering but unfortunately not a vegan friendly no matter how much of the site I searched for it, so perhaps in the future they will include a vegan sponge option.

Bakerdays have such a wide collection of different designs including adding your own images, this one is for fathers day and I went with a drink theme, it looked great on the website but I don’t know because of the process of getting the design onto the cake made it a little distorted or the fact that its been really warm here and it just didn’t sit well in the post, either way the design was bright and colorful and I think that if it was a bit cooler it would’ve been clearer and more obvious as to what it was.

All in all its a cute little novelty idea and the fact that it just fits perfectly through your letter box is a bonus, the cake itself is a lovely moist cake and the icing is perfect and isn’t to thick on top of the cake, it is small but that’s the blessing of it as I cannot imagine fitting a large cake in a letterbox!

May was such a weird month, a mixture of extremely hot days and some really wet and rainy ones, the month started with an almost full moon and ended on one too, which I managed to snap with my coolpix camera as I have seen so many wonderful zoomed shots of the moon using this camera before, we visited my mum twice and had far to much to eat as usual, the children built mud pies in her garden while Robin ran in and out of her house, Blossom and pollen everywhere so I didn’t really enjoy the month, spending a lot of it with itchy eyes but it was beautiful, everyone loves a good dandelion head!

Pancakes during half term with lots and lots of Minecraft being played as it was such a soggy week off school, adorable fledgling baby birds and plenty of artwork..

.. and of course stealing mummy’s washi tape to stack and build..

despite the weather it wasn’t that bad.. I don’t think anyone expected the heat after such a cold start to the year, but its not been THAT hard to deal with, I have probably been a grumpy mummy during it but I am now counting down the days until autumn… without three months to go!

You all know how much I love a good tag, and what better to find a tag thats music based, while I dont get to listen to music much these days with the kids being older and the fact that my diath piercing gets in the way of my ear buds, I do still love a good song and of course a boogie around the front room when its needed!

One of my lovely friends, Ash, who didn’t tag me, but did do this on their blog and I needed to do it, here blog is here if you fancy reading about some wonderful books but enough of me babbling, and we all know how much i love a good babble… lets jump into the Shuffle the Music tag!

1, All Night Long – Lionel Richie – I don’t know why this here, I like 80’s music and it was in one of those Best of the 80’s albums that are only sold at Christmas time.. still a good song.

2, Wild Honey – U2 – As surprising as this is, this is the only U2 song that shuffled, I am a big, or was a big U2 fan, this was my first album I ever bought with my OWN MONEY and I just love this song, makes me feel all happy

3, Wannabe – Spice Girls – The Spice Girls are my childhood, I wasnt that into them as some are but I still have fond memories of them and do get a little nostalgic at their songs, I was always Geri whenever my friends and I got together to dance along to their songs, which one are you?

4, Three Little Birds – Bob Marley – I used to play this to Kai when I was pregnant with him, Id rest my iPod onto my tummy, he would stop moving and ‘listen’ until the song ended and start wriggling again.

5, Two Worlds – Phil Collins – Good film with a good soundtrack, what more could you ask for?

6, Rockin’ Robin – McFly – I dont know why I have this one either, still a fun little song to dance too.

7,  Part of your World – Jodie Benson – Another one from my childhood, I think my obsession with red hair comes from this Disney film.

8, Fight for this Love – Cheryl Cole – I just thought it was a really catchy song.

9, No Regrets – Robbie Williams – The perfect breakup song! I love this song so much, its moody angry and mean and just the best thing to listen to when someone has done you wrong! ‘I didn’t loose my mind it was mine to give away!’

10,  Four Minute Warning – Mark Owen – I LOVE Mark Owen, he is such an underrated singer! his album ‘How the Mighty Fall’ is my favorite and I often put it on!

11,  Mr Blue Sky – ELO – This is my ‘if its playing in a store, I will be dancing along to it‘ song, such a fantastic upbeat fun song and reminds me of sitting up late on the internet talking to friends!

12, If I had Words – Scott Fitzgerald – Its the song Farmer Hoggett sang to the famous ‘Pig’ in Babe.. what else can I say.

13, Life is a Highway – Rascal Flatts – When my son was 2, as soon as he heard this song he was dancing, its from the Disney film Cars which is still played in this house today, while I was looking up the videos for this post, he heard it and a huge smile appeared on his face! Cars still make him happy.

14, Goldfish and Paracetamol –  Catatonia – No words, good song,

15,  Break the Ice – Britney Spears – I love the video to this song, I love the beat and how different it sounds to other Britney songs.

Nothing fancy for this weeks photo, I forgot to do last weeks Photograph Sunday post as I simple was so busy, we went around my mums on the saturday, just me Amelia and Robin and it was lovely, Kai had so much fun with his dad and we got to go for walks and relax in the sun.

Amelia did this lovely drawing of a rainbow too, I love what she wrote as well..

‘The rainbow was colorful a lot and the colors are very bright and it is good’

I adore childrens writing sometimes.
