June 2018 Favourites

It’s July! Already. The UK has been having some of the most spectacular weather I’ve experienced in my 7 years here. It’s been hot and sunny every day now for weeks, and it’s set to continue. It’s definitely one I will remember, for many reasons (more details on that at some point soon). I’ve decided that I want my summer 2018 mantra to be explore — new places, new things to cook, new books, etc. — but explore according to the principles of the slow movement (“slowing down life’s pace”): focusing on the present, less technology, more quality time with friends and family. Here are a few favourites.

◌  Saveur‘s summer guide to berries.

◌ Devoured the podcast Septic, which takes a new look at a terribly sad tragedy that happened in Virginia in 2015.

◌ Lots of great salad tips from Dinner, A Love Story.

This book absolutely floored me. A beautiful, heartbreaking, punched-in-the-stomach kind of novel.

◌ Other books I’ve enjoyed: Sunburn and Homegoing.

◌  Gin popsicles? Yes, please.

This home, a converted bus, is stunning (via swissmiss).

◌ Very cool underwater museum.

◌ My sister got me onto Wild Wild Country and now I want to do nothing else but discuss it. If you have a Netflix subscription I highly recommend it. Be prepared for one of the most bizarre, engrossing stories of your life.
