June has been a very good month for me. I've been busy, what with work experience and blogging and actual work too, but that's not to say I haven't enjoyed myself; quite the opposite, in fact. The little bits of sunshine we're getting here and there have definitely helped, too  there's something about the sun that just makes everything seem a little bit better.

What's Made Me Happy This Month? June 2015

I have several pet peeves  bad spelling and grammar, the saying 'real women have curves', people who ruin food by putting spring onions in it — and the idea that being pale is somehow inferior to being tanned is right up there with them.

Let me get one thing out of the way first: I don't have an issue with tanning, as long as it's done safely. Sun-kissed skin looks gorgeous, end of. But I am sick to the back teeth of people insinuating or outright stating that there somehow something wrong with being ghostly white, and, what's more, choosing to remain that way. I could tan if I had the time or patience, and I'd be lying if I said I hadn't been tempted by the Cocoa Brown Gradual Tan I've seen floating round the blogosphere, but it seems like a lot of effort to change something that I'm perfectly happy with in the first place.


And not a single fuck was given that day


Pale Skin Problems

This is the kind of post I didn't give much thought to. I don't mean that I don't care about it  I care about everything I write on this blog  or that I didn't put any effort into it  ditto  just that I just sat and wrote everything down as it appeared in my head. There wasn't much planning involved, I just let my brain take over (those are the best kind of writing days, when it all just flows). I think, more than anything, this post is an open letter (or should that be a list?) to myself when I was younger. Enjoy.

In the middle of March I won a giveaway held by Sandra from Beauty Balm. I was ridiculously excited, a) because I never win anything, and b) because the prize was these Rosa Rosa Skincare Minis from Bodhi and Birch (plus some little sample sachets which I daresay I'll be writing about at some point, thank you Sandra!) 

Bodhi and Birch is a brand I've read about frequently on Sandra's blog, but was yet to try until now, and I'm happy to report that I've been loving the trio. The parcel actually arrived on my birthday, too, so it felt like double the treat.

Beth, 23, South East England. I'm a writer with a love of books, lipstick, and the Oxford comma.

You can also expect posts about vegan/vegetarian food, and plenty of musings about life as a 20-something. Want to get in touch? Email me at beth.toasty@gmail.com
