June Favourites

My Petit Canard June Favourites

June has been a bit of a homeware month as a result of my current obsession with styling my new blogging and home office space. Its fair to say that I am very much curating my new space, with every single piece being very thoughfully and carefully selected. I want it to be a space that I love and love being in, so its really important to me that every piece has meaning, has a story to it or is just beautiful to look at so that I can be inspired and inspire whilst im in it. So here are my June favourites and a bit of a sneak peek into how my new blogging and home office space is shaping up. Enjoy!

1.Ce La Vie Notebook

This little notebook jumped out to me in TK Maxx earlier this month. The print and style are really similar to one of my current favourite stationery companies; Rifle Paper Co. It’s not unusual to find me on their website lusting over their gorgeous stationery and filling my online shopping basket with all the bits and pieces I’d love to buy. Usually what stops me from clicking that confirm button is the fact that they are US based. Whilst there are retailers in the UK that carry their lines, I usually can’t find the pieces I like over here and the other thing is the price. So the fact that this looked and felt like a Rifle Paper Co product, but was a fraction of the price meant that I just had to have it.

2. Aden & Anais Gap Limited Edition Organic Swaddle

I’ve wanted to get an Aden and Anais swaddle for the little one for ages. I love their prints and the quality is second to none. On one of my many Baby Gap shops I noticed that they had some limited and special edition Aden and Anais muslin and swaddle sets that matched their current babywear range. So when this cute print went into sale at 50% off I just had to get it along with the matching Baby Gap grow to go with it. I cant wait to swaddle our little one in it, its gorgeous!

3. Star Led Light

I’m all about finding beautiful but affordable things to style and dress my new space. I’ve found some great pieces over the last few weeks, and slowly but surely I am creating a Pinterest worthy space that I cant wait to share very soon. One of my most recent finds was this little star led light from New Look of all places. I had no idea that they did a small but lovely homeware range, but they do and I found this little beauty which was a bargain and looks perfect on my gorgeous new GLTC shelves.

4. Marble iPhone Case

I’m massively into marble at the moment (who isn’t!) and love having accents of it around our home. Done right, I think it can look really classy and understated. Especially if you have real marble which is always my preference. I definitely prefer to spend a little bit more where furniture is concerned for the real thing. That said, I’ve noticed recently that you can get the marble effect in a lot of other things that you wouldn’t typically like note pads and phone cases which I actually really like, so decided to treat myself to a new iPhone marble effect case which I picked up from Amazon. I really love the way it instantly transforms my iPhone and makes it look a bit glam!

So those are my favourites for June. Lots of lovely things to make my new blogging space look pretty! What things have you found this month that you love and have brought you joy?

    I desperately need a new case for my phone as NC keeps chewing bits of the (boring but practical) black rubber casing. Not good for baby or phone. I’ll check the marble style out – very regal! Lovely choices for June – and hope you’re doing well in these early weeks 🙂 #MarvMondays

    Ooo I love that swaddle – so cute! I have a gorgeous Aden and Anais giraffe swaddle but Alfie never liked to be swaddled so I haven’t used it as much as I would have liked! Loving the notebook as well #MarvMondays

    My daughter proudly showed me her new marble phone case yesterday! Lovely. Also, I didn’t realise that New Look did homeware either until a couple of weeks ago when I bought a gorgeous soy mix candle in the sale from there. Alison x #MarvMondays

    Oh I’m so with you on having the right things around you to make you feel better about everything you’re doing. I adore beautiful phone cases, lighting and journals so I completely understand – pens are another obsession with me too! Thank you for sharing #MarvMondays

    You have a real talent for photography – that cover photo is gorgeous! Is there a post showing your office? I’m going to dig around on your blog to see if I can find it and will definitely make sure I’m following you on Instagram. I love inspirational home decor photos. #MarvMondays

    The Aden & Anais muslins are fab aren’t they? I used to stock them when I was running DaisychainBaby and they were always a firm favourite. Love that little star light too X #MarvMondays

    I love that lamp! I’ve been eyeing a few up in Bhs that have been discounted but have nowhere to put one at the moment so keep telling myself no! #marvmondays

    I love your notebook! I currently blog from a corner of the sofa so no lovely things for me (although I do absolutely adore my sofas so that’s always a plus!). I think I’m going to have to get more organised and find a place of my own somewhere in the house – then I’ll definitely need to go shopping for some lovely things too! #marvmondays

    Love the light, I’ve been looking for one for my daughters room so its fab to know New Look sell a nicely priced one! The phone case looks lovely too! Thanks for hosting #marvmondays it’s lovely that your back, I hope your gorgeous bubbies are well x

    What a cool iPhone cover, love the look of that, my phone has hit the deck one too many times. I also came across that star light just yesterday and contemplated it for my little girls room, then I remembered that putting it on the wall will probably never happen and it’ll be sat with all my photo frames that I’m nagging my OH to put up!

    I haven’t bought anything new like this for me for so long – I think my favourite thing this month has been bringing roses home from our allotment and enjoying those #marvmondays
