Another month, another Instagram post. I always feel like I moan about how the months zoom by every time I write one of these, but they really do go by quickly! Already halfway through 2014 - unbelievable! Having said that, I'm so ready for summer. We've been very lucky to have such lovely weather in June, and that has meant making the most of getting outside!

At the beginning of the month I reached 1,000 Bloglovin' followers which is AMAZING! I can't believe that so many of you follow my little old blog, which is curving more towards lifestyle than anything else, especially this month. I promise next month will be much more varied, with plenty of beauty posts to boot. I must get back on that bandwagon... Speaking of getting back on bandwagons, you may have noticed that I've been doing a lot of baking recently. Well along with baking comes the eating, and boy, have I scoffed! I've decided to limit myself (not diet but eat sensibly) and start exercising again. I think healthy eating gets much easier in the summer because you don't crave stodge like you do when it's cold and I'm actually quite partial to a salad! I'm going to be subjecting myself to the 30-Day Shred every day of July, plus I will be taking on the 30-Day Squat Challenge too! I've done the Shred before and it's worked so well for me, I just didn't keep up with it when work got in the way. This time I'm determined to stick with it and give it my all! 

I've also been spending a lot of my spare time outside in the garden and down the beach. We live about a 2-minute walk away from the beach so getting there is super easy for us, and we always feel the need around this time of year to get down there before all the tourists arrive. Believe me, you don't want to be stuck down the beach when the pasty old fellas with deck chairs are let loose! So the beach has been our chosen dog walk destination when the tide is out. Tegan loves it! She doesn't like the water much but she loves chasing the seagulls and wreaking havoc on the sand. She goes a bit mental and runs in circles, haha! The only problem is she gets so sandy so it's straight into the garden to hose her down after!

How was your June?
