Monthly Favourites // Linky #2 - June 2015


Last month I started a new linky and it was really nerve wrecking. These things are always slow starting but hopefully will grow :) All based around monthly favourites. Thankyou so much to those that joined in last month!!! It is for all bloggers of any type whether it be parenting, lifestyle, beauty, travel etc. I see so many monthly favourite posts and videos around that I absolutely love reading but it came to my attention that as far as I could find there isn't a linky for them.

You will be able to link up any post or video. This isn't a your favourite post from the month, it's your monthly favourites so it could be your monthly favourites - beauty, randoms, lifestyle, fashion, pictures, anything that is monthly and favourites!! For example I will be adding my me and mine linky photo this month which includes a few things that I have loved about this month :)



(The code will bring up the image smaller on your blog but set it to whatever size you like!)


As ever there are some basic rules, there isn't many so please read and stick to these. Anyone not sticking to the rules will be removed from participating. 

1. You must add the above code to the post you have linked up to so the picture is added or if on youtube, then you must add a link to this post in your video description. 
2. Comment on at two blogs post in front of you on the list, more is appreciated if you wish. Use the #monthlyfavourites in comments so people know where you stopped by from.
3. Maximum of two entry per blog/youtube - just on the topic of #monthlyfavourites (I know some people do separate beauty and random favourites!)
4. Will be open every month between 25th and 10th - so plenty of time :)

Twitter Hashtag - #monthlyfavourites
(please use this hashtag so others can see your posts and I will retweet as many as I can. Also would be really grateful for a social media share to help spread the word of the linky too!) 

For those of you who may be old or new, and struggling to work out how to join in linkies. I created a YouTube tutorial. I admit it isn't the greatest and I was so nervous when talking (sorry!) but should certainly do the job to help you understand :) So check out this video here to learn how to join in:

June 2015 - Monthly Favourites #4


As if another month has gone by, sometimes I sit and think 'wow time is going so slow' but really it isn't. When I write these posts I'm a bit like 'There isn't enough time to do everything!!!' Anyone else feel the same - or just me?! Let's get into this months favourites anyways..

*Mummy Loves*

*Corey Loves*
Sleepover at nanny's
School sports day
New found love for Sonic

So I attended Brit Mums Live Blogging Conference, you can read my post about the day here. It was really good. I admit it is quite long 2 days but you really do have an amazing time. Being with 100s of fellow parent bloggers in center of London. I am lucky enough to have two very amazing best friends Vicki from EllieBearBabi and Andrea from BloggerMumma who I shared a room with, we always came a day early to do some shopping and have a girly night in the hotel. Of course, I got to meet many other of my lovely blogging friends and make new ones too. I admit I mainly go for the social aspect but well worth the experience. Was my second year attending and if I'm still blogging next year then I will probably try to go again!

This month my mum ending up booking us a little trip to Wales for end of July for my birthday. Mum grew up there so will be showing us her old house, school etc. We will be down South and hopefully get the chance to visit Cardiff for some shopping!! Will be really nice to get away for a few days during the summer holidays - very needed break for all three of us :)

Here is this month's favourite picture of Corey and I :) We were celebrating my Uncle's 50th Birthday. This is by far one of my favourite pictures of us in a long time. Corey looks so grown up though!!!

You may have seen that last month I started a brand new linky. It is all for your monthly favourite blog posts (like this one!) or youtube videos, on any topic whether it be beauty, randoms, fashion, photos etc. It took a while to come up with a badge but I am pretty pleased with the outcome as I am not good at this whole design thing. If you want to join in pretty please click here and link up :) Also help spread the word on social media would be so greatly appreciated!

Look forward to seeing lots of your posts on your monthly favourites and photos for those who join in the new linky :) Now in the comments let me know what was your favourite part of this month?!

Love, Gemma xo
