Well, as regular readers will have noticed, this months favourites is late… I’m not sorry. 😛
I’ve been so busy lately that this is the only chance I’m getting to write my favourites for June, it’s rubbish but we can’t help how busy and crazy life can be sometimes.
But I’m here and I’m raring to go for today’s blog post about my favourites from June! I already can’t believe we’re nearly a week into July!
- Carmex Lip Balm in Cherry and Sugar Plum.
This is an old favourite I’ve been reminded of recently when searching for a new lip balm to use. Carmex is a lip balm I used to use LOADS when I was working in my last retail job, as well as previous admin role. I didn’t realise I had some spare pots lying around in my beauty drawers so when I found these, I decided to give them a go. They don’t only smell amazing, but they feel great on and leave your lips baby soft! They also contain menthol so they leave a tingly cooling sensation on the lips, which might plump them a little too. The cherry one is still around, but the sugar plum version was limited edition MANY years ago (around 2017?) and I never ended up using it until recently! I much prefer Carmex to Vaseline so when these are used up, I’ll be buying Carmex more often!
So… Now it’s time to talk about the miscellaneous favourites of the month! If there isn’t anything I’ve done I’m not going to mention.
Favourite Film – The Talented Mr. Ripley.
This is a film I watched at the end of June after seeing it on Netflix. I’ve never watched it but both me and Dane had watched a preview from the film and I added it to my list. I ended up watching it on my own whilst I did some work and I really love it! It’s about Tom Ripley, asked to go and find a mans soon, who he befriends. It isn’t all plain sailing though and shit hits the fan. I definitely recommend giving it a watch if you never have! Fun fact, Matt Damon claims this is his favourite film he’s been in to date.
Favourite TV Show – Viva La Bam.
I don’t know why but towards the end of June I got the itch to binge watch season 1-5 of Viva La Bam. If you’ve never heard of it (although I’ll be shocked if anyone hasn’t…) it’s basically a spin off of Jackass in a way where Bam Margera terrorises his parents alongside with his friends. Basically cKy films, but a show! It’s clearly all scripted but this is a show I loved as a teenager. When I would skip school (yes… I skipped school!) I would stay at home and put MTV on during the day and watch random shows, including Viva La Bam. I also used to binge watch this and Jackass when I was working on my dissertation during my university days! When I was old enough to I saved up my pocket money/money I earnt through odd jobs and bought all of the box sets as and when they came out. Years later I still love this show and scripted or not, it still brings back a lot of memories. My favourite episode is season 1 episode 8, Scavenger Hunt.
Favourite Music – Random game music I use on Twitch!
I love having cute music play before my stream starts and I usually try to limit it to a couple of songs to get people hyped for the stream! Above are just three of my favourites that really do get me into a dancing mood before streams! Especially Monday and Friday streams where I bring my Cookie amigurumi (you can read about her here!) to hang out! 😛
Favourite Game – Doki Doki Literature Club Plus!
This is a new game purchase I made towards the end of June! Doki Doki Literature Club isn’t exactly a new game, but it was announced during E3 that Doki Doki Literature Club Plus! was due to come out at the end of June with loads of DLC and updates! Dane was shocked that I’d never heard of the game and encouraged me to get it when the time was right. So, I pre-ordered on my Switch and I’ve played it a few times since. It looks like a cute dating game, but it’s actually a psychological horror game! I’ve not yet reached the horror parts of the game, but after researching what I was expecting, it’s pretty fucking horrific! This game is NOT advised to be played by children, or people who could be mentally affected easily and the latter is why I why I searched to see what happens. I didn’t want to worry I bought it, played and it affected my mental health. I don’t think it will… This is a game I thought about streaming on Twitch, as a few people had asked me to as well. However, this isn’t going to be happening due to the disturbing themes. It isn’t worth it.
Quite a few of my favourite things…
Becoming a Twitch Affiliate!
As many as you guys may have seen from previous posts on my Twitter and Instagram, as well as potentially on my monthly posts in June… I finally made affiliate on Twitch! It was a proud moment for me and I as so fucking happy. It had been something I’d planned to get to by the end of May, so the fact I hit that target on 1st June was typical. 😛
Since then I feel my Twitch has continued to improve and I’m still enjoying streaming Animal Crossing and more! I also have a camera set up now, so you guys can watch me play games and chat away, which is always good! If you haven’t come to check out my stream yet, please pop by, it would be amazing to see you. 🙂
Finally wearing my Black Milk Clothing Butterfree dress!
I bought my BMC Butterfree dress back in September 2020 and finally for a meal and drinks out with my best friend and her bridesmaids, I got to wear it! It’s so bloody comfortable, flattering and made me feel so pretty and confident. I haven’t had the chance to wear it again since, but honestly I can’t wait! I’ll be wearing it at some point in the future when me and Dane go somewhere for a day out, as well as if we decide to go on holiday anywhere in the UK this year too. If you want to find out more about the dress, you can read all about it here.
My best friend got married!
Almost a month ago now, my best friend got married! It was such a beautiful day and many tears were shed due to that. I had an amazing time and was so happy to be a huge part of it with being her maid of honour really was an honour! Not going to lie though, I was so tired by the late afternoon and evening and I couldn’t wait to sleep. 😛 It’s just amazing how quick the time has flown already since the day and I’m so proud of my best friend! 🙂
I would have posted a photo from the day but I feel it isn’t my place, so you guys can have the one of me holding the flowers my best friend and her husband gave to me. 🙂
In June my mom came over to help me with my garden and gifted me this amazing hanging basket she’d done up, as well as some flowers in one of my flower beds. Our garden is looking so beautiful and colourful and I’m so thankful for her help! I love how pretty my garden now looks and I cannot wait to do more in the future with it now. 🙂
I bought myself a new car…
So… I bought myself a new car! It was a very random and spontaneous thing but I’d been thinking of getting something new since I came back from Japan in January 2020. Due to COVID it didn’t happen and lockdown and working from home that also put me off as I wasn’t needing to drive anywhere. Finally I decided to bite the bullet and get something new! Originally I was going to buy a two year old car, but it didn’t feel like it was very… Me? So I settled on my gorgeous blue Citroen C3 and I love it! I’m hoping to do a post about it in the future, but I don’t know if/when that will be sadly.
So there we have it guys! My favourites from June! June was a good month, but I constantly felt hectic and busy so July will be nice to just try and relax a bit. 🙂
