The Sunday Brunch Post, Episode XIV


So June is over already? Wow. Not only do I need to exclaim that another month has flown by, but I have to come to terms with the fact that half the year has passed already. Yep, we're halfway through 2016.

June started off so positively for me, with the upcoming holiday propelling me through the early weeks, and although I'm not going to go into my political views and fears in this post, I can't pretend that I ended June in a positive frame of mind.


Mildly interesting things that happened this month:

I went to my first ever wedding as an adult this month, and it was such a fun day. The wedding was in Cornwall, in the most beautiful location, and we were also lucky enough to be able to make a long weekend out of the trip.

A couple of weeks ago I (quite spontaneously) got to go and see Coldplay at Wembley Stadium, which was such a great experience. And you can read all about that in my blog post, if you haven't already seen it!

As Tom is off to Pilot School for 18 months, we squeezed in the last bit of travelling we could do together before he goes, and flew to Lisbon for a week. We had an amazing time, and I have multiple posts (and a vlog) in the pipeline to tell you all about the trip.

This week has meant the start of our flat hunt again, which I am so excited about. Fingers crossed we will have somewhere sorted by the time the next Sunday Brunch post comes around!


Things that have kept me entertained:

I finally caught up with Game of Thrones in time to catch the most recent season, and oh my goodness, what an ending to that last season. After four or five months of consecutively watching the existing six seasons, I don't know how I'm going to wait a year for the next!

Much to my surprise I've become a little bit obsessed with Ariana Grande's most recent album, having never listened to her music before now. I fully blame Joe from Northern Blood for including one of her songs in his monthly playlist.

After hearing his album played in a restaurant in Lisbon, I've also been listening to Ben Howard a lot. I don't know why or how I had never really come across him before, but Every Kingdom is becoming one of my faves. 


This month’s haul:

There's no mini haul this month, since you've had a whole style haul post from Lisbon and also have a Sephora haul coming your way. Aren't you lucky...



Posts I've loved:





And finally, here’s a round-up of what I posted over the last month:
