June always feels like the worst month of the year to me- I don’t know why it’s just awful! This June was especially awful as at the same time my parents went away, Chris had a lot going on so (as were doing the whole long distance relationship thing) I barely saw him for a month, as being the sole carer of my dog I couldn’t really see anyone.

Another factor is I’m not too keen on the summer months; my skin has become super sensitive so I hate the heat, I have to pack away all my furs and a lot of my favourite clothing and the humidity makes my hair suffer. Basically I feel super unattractive!
When Debs from The (Not So) Secret Diary Of A Wannabe Princess suggested joining #JoyfulJunePSBloggers I jumped at the chance. After the success of #PSBloggersMarvellousMay I want to join in more of these sorts of group things. Plus the idea of sending off an anonymous parcel (I didn’t even know who I was sending too just an address) to someone to brighten their day and receiving one in return (form someone else) sounded just like the sort of group love I know I would need to cheer up my June.  I spent a good few hours deciding on the perfect parcel totally £10 (super affordable) ending up picking some vintage inspire beauty products I’ve been loving lately and some chocolate (and as I wasn’t to keep it anonymous I’m not going to share).

My gifter got items for me down to a tee (OMG look at that awesome handmade rose headband I physically think she has been in my mind with how awesome it is- seriously a rose, hairband and handmade ticks all the boxes of things I love) and I hope my gifted will enjoy my parcel as much as me. I sincerely hope that whoever took the time to send me such well-planned and thoughtful gifts see this post as I want to give them a heartfelt thank you for cheering me up out of my funk.

This is 100% the thing I needed to cheer me up (arriving a few hours before I finally got to spend time with Chris and my parents arriving home) and has inspired me to contribute to all lot more blogger collaborations/ challenges.  Its also got my creative juices flowing again so expect a few more DIY outfits to appear on the blog.

I hope everyone else hasn’t fallen into the mid-year slump.
