Amazon Voucher Giveaway July

Happy July, how is going for you? Hope all is well and you're having a good one. The weather has been amazing, hasn't it? Though I totally admit for me personally it has been a bit too much to deal with. However, for those who love the hot weather, I am sure it has been great.

As normal I thought I would go through some of my Instagram photos of late, for those who don't have it and then round it off with the chance to win an Amazon voucher.

Indoor plants are definitely my kinda thing!?⠀ ⠀ My @geo_fleur #PlantPostClub plant for June arrived (I'm posting this a little late!). It is a Bird's Nest Fern – Asplenium Nidus. I love how brightly green it is and I am planning on staying subbed to this club for a while! ⠀ ⠀ Do you have green fingers? I don't think I do really, but I do enjoy trying my best to keep my plants alive!⠀ ⠀ ————————–⠀ ⠀ #IndoorPlants #Plants #UKBloggers #UKBloggerLife #BloggersTribe #Lifestyle #BloggingGals #LifestyleBlogger #BloggerLife #Blogger #OnTheBlog #TeacupClub #FBlogger #FashionBlogger #Fashionista #WearitLoveit #FlashesofDelight #TheHappyNow #NothingisOrdinary #ThatsDarling #LookBook #DIY #TravelBlogger #DesignInspo #Passion #BBlogger #BBloggerUK #PursuePretty #PrettyLittleIiinspo

    A few days ago I got the strangest idea to write a blog about what I receive through my letterbox, mostly from the postman. It’s so far turned out to be a lot of fun because I can’t help but finding the funny side to even the most boring of topics. However, it got a little more interesting today when I received a sign Tom Fletcher book. Happy days 🙂

    Love the variety of photos and posts. The dog is far too cute lol, but love the tattoos as well. Too much of a wimp to get one myself. Now looking forward to the start of the Premier League season. Seems ages since the end of the World Cup. Have the bonus of going to see my favourite player play this season, but not until April (easiest to get to) even if I have to sit with the “wrong” fans lol. Just hope he doesn’t score too many goals hat day.

  125. anthony morris

    2 weeks off from work on fri

  126. Angela Kelly

    I’ve just dipped my toe into the facial oil phenomena. I was a bit scared since I struggle with breakouts but I’ve chosen jojoba which is supposed to help.

  127. Christine Lockley

    I love, love, love your tattoo and my urge for another is now firmly back – just to decide what and where – mmm decisions, decisions. Never heard of a “Plant Post Club” so will definitely be investigating that too. Keep up the great blogging

  128. Marie Rungapadiachy

    I have enjoyed spending more time with my Daughters over the Summer.

    I love all of your Sal posts such a cutie!

  137. Susan Willshee

    I enjoyed your post about indoor plants. I love plants too. I’ve currently got loads of spider plants on the go because as they grow they send out runners with baby plants on. If you pot the baby plants in a little compost they soon grow into full sized plants and then start producing even more runners.I think my friends and family are sick of me offering them a spider plant every time they visit

  138. Simon Tinsley

    Great photos. Today I am supposed to be having two sets of French doors put into my house. Fingers crossed that they actually turn up to do the job.

  139. gaynor Vincent

    I love you doggy – dogs are so wonderful, always there for you and you are right its too hot!
