Happy End of June everyone!!
We have reached that magical time of year where the days start to get a little shorter but they get exponentially hotter!
You all know I am not very good with the heat, but this summer I am actually kind of excited to get a bit of a tan and spend some time in the sunshine!!
This month, as all of them, has gone passed in a flash and I feel like I have spent it chasing my tail!
At one point we had no hot water (thank you Dadums for fixing it), the house has had a deep clean and the food processor went bang! To top it all, the 9-5 has been giving me a crazy amount of anxiety, so I have been doing my best to keep it all together and work on my trigger points (but that is a story for another time).
Let’s let that all go to one side, and get into the things that I have loved this month!!
In the Kitchen:
With the temperature rising and air condition being turned up to the max, I feel like I am turning into the seasonal prune! To keep hydrated from the inside out, I have been doing my best to drink at least one of these when I get home in the few hours before I go to bed.
I love this bottle so so much for its size, and message! We should all be reminded to be in the moment and not distracted so much!
Side note: I keep a full one of these by my bed so I can grab it in the morning and drink it before I head out the door. This sounds so lazy, but if my water is not in one place and ready for me to drink I just wont drink it.
In the Bathroom:
A french skin care item in my favourites should be no shock to anyone! I have a very real obsession with it…..and to be honest I do not see it going anywhere any time soon! They are just the best!!
I have been applying this cream underneath my SPF to give that added hydration. There is an added bonus with this little guy as it is formulated to reduce redness. I so much as have to think about being warm or sunburnt to go bright red, so this has been helping out loads!
In the Bedroom:
I had to add this favourite in, but I couldn’t find a space…so I thought: “My other earrings live in the bedroom, so I will just bung them here!”
Over the last 9 months I have been slowly finishing off my curated ear. This sounds so poncy but this is the only way I can describe it.
During the piercing stage I have been feeling so miffed that the rest of my ear looks so boring….so I added these little beauties to my ear to give it a bit of flair! These are all from SeolGold on Etsy so please go check them out! Super affordable and AMAZING quality!
In The House of Lotz Spa and Retreat (aka the Living Room):
For the last year or two I have been using the poof that came with our sofa as my desk…..which has been killing me back! Hunching over is not a good look for me!
The final straw came in the form of my back spasming so badly I had to take a bath….and muscle relaxant….and apply muscle gel!
After this The Boy made me look at desk options for the living room!
This little guy is from Home Sense and it is meant to be a garden table, but it really suits our living room perfectly!
In the Portable House of Lotz (aka In My Handbag):
Once upon a time, way back when I was at Senior School, there was a teacher that I just adored! Everything about her was amazing and all I wanted to do was be like her! From her hair, nail polish and shoes, I just loved her! She reminded me a little of Charlotte from Sex and the City….so if any of my lovely readers went to my old school around the same time as me this will be a massive give away!
In her stationery arsenal she had a full set of Parker pens. The fountain pen, ballpoint and the pencil. Over the years I have collected the fountain pen and ballpoint, but the pencil has always just that little bit out of reach!
This year I decided it has to be mine, so I now have a full set!! I have been using it non-stop….so my 12 year old self would be so proud!
So that is what has been keeping me going this month!
What have you all been loving? Is there anything I should be trying next month?
Have a great weekend xXx Hugs and love xXx
