Our Month - June 2021


I feel the lateness of this post perfectly sums up how the last fews months of 2021 have been... hectic! And with restrictions easing so much it's been so easy to fall back into 'normal' life, so it feels even busier than ever after so many months of doing absolutely nothing. June was definitely one of those months that flew past too, most likely helped with a jam packed half term break at the very beginning.

We started the month with an extra special trip to Legoland Windsor. As part of our work as Merlin Annual Pass collaborators, we were invited down to Legoland and given VIP treatment for the day! Not only did that mean we got to experience all the amazing rides and attractions with hardly any queueing, but we also got to experience their amazing new area Lego Mythica too. So much fun!

The rest of half term was full of sunshine meaning we got to make the most of getting out and about. Lots of garden time, trips to the library and of course allll of the ice creams too. We picked up our new car during the week too which was rather exciting (although the littles will say they enjoyed the Nandos we got beforehand the most).

We decided to do our annual strawberry picking trip a little earlier this year, as there wasn't many left during our trip last year. We went back to Lower Ladysden Farm in Goudhurst again and it was so lovely - they have a wonderful outdoor seating area next to their cafe, and plenty of open space to run around in too. Definitely well worth a visit for fruit picking (or just a tasty treat) if you're local. And of course another annual tradition is our Father's Day visit to Nyman's NT, although it rained this year so we couldn't enjoy a picnic unfortunately.

Of course I can't talk about June without talking about getting my first Covid vaccine! It still seems surreal that we're here in this situation, but I said to Jack that the fact we're in a pandemic didn't really hit me until until I was sat waiting to be called forward for my jab. Luckily I only really suffered a sore arm as a side effect, so fingers crossed I experience the same when it comes to my second dose next month.

Throughout June we watched our tiny caterpillars grow and change, before emerging from their cocoons as beautiful butterflies. We loved following the process the last two years and it's something we definitely want to repeat again next year. The month ended with Jack competing in the Penshurst Place 5k Colour Run - a race through the countryside with a twist... lots of paint, foam and fun. This is something we definitely want to do again next year too, but as a family instead!

Are Cosmetic Procedures right for You?


With social media and everyones lives constantly under scrutiny, it's no surprise that everyone wants to look their best these days. This pressure has steered a large proportion of people to try all the possible cosmetic procedures. But finding the right treatment that suits you the best, and can provide the perfect solution to your problem, can be tricky.

The ultimate desire is to achieve natural looks and results that can enhance your looks and keep you away from all side effects after all! Some women reject the idea of ageing because it evokes the feeling of fear and insecurity in them and this has pushed them forward to try all the anti-aging products and treatments that are available in the market. One of the most popular procedures being botox.

Botox is one of the well-known aesthetic procedures chosen by millions all over the world. As an FDA-approved treatment, botox is offered in several clinics and you would be surprised to see a few in and around your locality itself (but be aware of several cowboy clinics that wouldn’t be the ideal environment for you). Your family, friends, and relatives might be able guide you to the right clinic, or you can look for yourself by searching for botox clinics near me online.

Make sure to search for the best clinic for you by looking at the online rating and reviews that are given for the clinic, its service, and also the practitioners. Before you go for the treatment, also make sure to do your research to know all the pros and cons to be sure about your choice and the treatment. It is usually possible to book a free appointment online to learn more about the treatment, and any possible complications, so you can be reassured that it's the right step for you. 

Whatever you decide in the end, make sure it's a decision that you take for yourself. You don't need to change yourself to impress anyone! Do it for yourself and for your own looks and happiness.
