It has been a very busy June! I don’t even know where to begin! My blog life totally took over – I have so much to share there. I’m looking forward to taking a step back in July & enjoying the kids while they are on summer vacation.
We had some gorgeous weather early in June & thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The flowers are in bloom & the towns look really beautiful.
Hasbro sent us their new Play-Doh Town Ice Cream Truck. It was a big hit with our 3-year-old daughter. Then when our 6-year-old came home from school the real ice cream production began. I was kept going “tasting” ice creams all day.
Little lambs were born – they are so adorable when they are small! The kids love to see them too.
I received some Artistry makeup to try out. The packaging is beautiful & I’m looking forward to seeing what it’s like on!
The big news for #BloggerClubUK linky is that Clare is back from maternity leave & we are keeping Debbie. So we now have three hostesses which is fantastic! It’s meant lots more RT’s & energy on Twitter & also less comments to write for each of us.
The big news of June comes in the form of being named finalist – twice! First was for #BML16 in the Inspire category – which I’m sure you have read about already. The second is for Boots Maternity & Infant Awards in Dublin. Those awards are based purely on public vote so if you haven’t voted already, I’d really appreciate it! Please Vote Here. 🙂
#BML16 was amazing. The highlight for me was meeting so many amazing bloggers in real life. Here are a few snaps & you can read more about my experience on my #BML16 post. I really enjoyed being away all by myself. It was a fun break to just be me for a change. I’m really lucky to have such an amazing sponsor, Innovo, who sent me to #BML.
In the middle of the amazing finalist news I received the most fabulous tweet from the @MADBlogAwards saying I was nominated for the outstanding contribution award! I can’t tell you how much it means to me to be nominated for this award. I’m really grateful to the people who nominated me & I feel really honoured to be considered!
In other news, when I wasn’t paying any attention, my blog hit 100k views. I totally missed it. lol
I have a summer giveaway running now. Pop over for your chance to win some lovely things for you & the kiddies.
My blogger buddy & #BloggerClubUK co-hostess Debbie has published her first book, Twisted Tales, available on Amazon. I helped Debbie design the book cover. She was kind enough to credit me in her book & I’m quite delighted to see my name in print! It’s a collection of short stories that are quite twisted; check it out if you haven’t already. Here’s the cover…
So that was June! It was a whirlwind of blog excitement – voting, finalists, #BML16 while at the same time trying to keep family life going. I am taking it a bit easier for July to enjoy more family time. My quote linky, candid cuddles
I am taking it a bit easier for July to enjoy more family time while the kids are home on holidays. My quote linky, candid cuddles is taking a break until August. We also have some changes to Blogger Club UK linky for the month of July. My husband & I celebrate our ten year wedding anniversary this month. So lots of excitement!!
I will be back in full swing again in August. How was your June? x
