I am getting later and later at doing these posts each month - I'm definitely not on my best blogging form at the moment (but in my defence, I do have a good excuse)!
June has FLOWN by, and with it has come sunshine, parties, adventures and pals. Here's what it looked like for me...
1. The sun came out & I spent many a happy afternoon reading in the sunshine. After watching the Great Gatsby I finally got round to reading the book - more of this in my next book love post!
2. I got to spend an entire day with my pal Niki & his dog Eddie (HI EDDIE) - he's such a cool little guy! (The dog. Niki is cool too though).
3. I tidied up my garden and found this mismatch of gnarled vegetables. Now there's tomatoes, lettuce, radishes, squash and pumpkins (!) growing.
4. Borrowing my pal Jules' amazing sparkly gold shoes for a fancy event. I'm such a magpie, I love them!
5. Hanging out with my pal Lucy (and a really tiny pint), in my favourite Edinburgh pub.
6. Hi Riley! I wish I could be even half as comfy as he looks!
7. Matching outfits with my palio Jude at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival launch. Countdown to the most wonderful time of the year (aka the Fringe!) is on, and I absolutely can't wait. I love August in Edinburgh!
8. Every summer The List holds a midsummer party with fancy music, lovely people & an entire roast pig - yum! After the monsoon last year, it was luckily a glorious sunny night, and I got to see all of my old work pals (who I've actually not left alone since changing jobs, ha, but it was nice to be back in my old stomping ground!).
9. I went camping to a beautiful place in Scotland, Glen Etive, with my pal Joshua & his flatmate's ace camper van! I'll blog in more detail about this soon (as it was absolutely stunning!), but in the meantime here's a photo of the extreme measures we had to go to after being attacked by thousands of midgies... aaargh!
10. Trying out some of the samples at a Slow Food event... all in the name of work. It's a hard life!
11. Fancy hair for the Edinburgh Film Festival opening party. I got to walk a red carpet and drink fancy cocktails with lots of beautiful looking people in glamorous outfits. So much fun!
12. One of the films I saw at EIFF was For Those in Peril - an intense, but brilliant film set in a tiny Scottish community. My wonderpal Steph worked on the film, and it was the first time I've seen her name in credits - I'm so so proud!
