June has been a whirlwind for me personally. 10 days in Ibiza, wrapping up some big work projects before the summer, and suddenly getting to 6 months pregnant! The time has just flown by, but luckily we still have the height of the summer with July and August left, and I for one can´t wait. Here are some of my personal favourites from June…
I have been living in these maternity denim shorts from ASOS for the past month, which are the perfect, flattering fit for the summer.
I love me a good, lightweight self-tan, so not surprisingly, it was instant love after trying Tan-Luxe´s Hydra Mousse – a transparent tanning water, which gives a really natural and soft glow, while keeping the skin moisturised and soft.
Another addition to my ever growing straw hat collection from Melon Swimwear – but this one is pretty special, being personalised and all… Love it!
I love natural make-up which helps enhance, rather than completely take over – so naturally, the Dior Addict Lip Glow quickly become a firm favourite of mine. With its special formula, the lip glow reacts directly with each woman’s lips to release its colour ingredient – giving it that nice subtle blush of colour.
Another great product when it comes to a more natural-looking finish, is the Clinique Blend It Yourself Pigment Drops – where you can adjust how much to cover by how many drops you add, which you then blend with your moisturiser, for a soft, dewy finish. Perfect.
I keep finding new favourite scents with Jo Malone, and my latest candle obsession is their Lavender & Lovage scented candle – so clean and refreshing, yet calming with the lavender. The perfect bedside table addition.
I am obsessed with my new sunglasses from Dior in this fresh metallic blue colour – the best summer shades.
In complete contrast, I also love these dark squared shades from Ace & Tate – so minimal, classic and easy to wear with any outfit.
My latest sandal purchase are these gorgeous fringed woven sandals from Isa Tapia – so comfortable, super chic and I love the neutral colour palette. Perfect with summer dresses and denim.
A great and natural looking full-body tint from NARS, with a broad spectrum sunscreen to both protect and enhance. Super easy to bronze and blend – a great summer beauty staple. Another favourite from NARS, is this really natural and hydrating glow tint for your face, part of the limited Charlotte Gainsbourg collection – the ideal base to awaken dull skin, even out the tone with a sheer and weightless coverage.
The perfect beach bag from Elizabeth Scarlett in a fresh white cotton, embroidered with palm trees – what´s not to love?
Love these super chic grey espadrille flatform trainers from Mint Velvet – so comfortable, flattering and stylish. Works with both denim, dresses and skirts for the summer months.
I invested in this unisex black wash bag from Mon Purse – the ideal size for weekend-trips, and I adore the classic and masculine black grainy leather, combined with the luxe, brass hardware.
I am so in love with my new customised gold pendant necklace from Rebus. I decided to engrave it with my maiden name family crest (Willis) to always keep it close to my heart… Such a beautiful piece of jewellery, which will not be leaving my sight any time soon.
Some super cute star earrings from Bon Bon Bijou. I am sucker for anything star shaped, and these just some extra sparkle to my lobes.
Last, but certainly not least, this dream of an off-the-shoulder summer dress from & Other Stories. I love the combination of the pale yellow, with the border lace detailing and boho embroidery – not to mention, it´s the perfect fit for my growing bump!
