Scandi Floor Lamp
This simple and modern floor lamp by Illumina Lighting is both functional and beautiful, bringing sophistication to any space it is placed in. Inspired by timeless Scandinavian design, and available in classic colours makes this lamp universally stunning, and my favourite product for June.

Lust_for_Life


Lana Del Rey’s latest album ‘Lust For Life’ was released this month, and the mixture of beautiful lyrics, great production and a fantastic vocal delivery – this album is Lana at her very best.

Each song tells us a different emotion and experience that Lana had, making this album rather personal, but also relatable as the songs speak of love, growth, hope, loss and being a human being in todays world. I have many favourites off the album, with stand-outs being ‘Love’, ‘Lust For Life’, ‘Coachella – Woodstock On My Mind’, ‘Tomorrow Never Came’, ‘Change’ and ‘Get Free’

note to self by Connor Franta
‘note to self’ is Connor’s second book, after ‘A Work in Progress’, with both books being about his life, the person behind the camera, and finding himself  in this technological age. The book is filled with short stories and poems written by Franta, as well as photographs (which are all incredibly fantastic, I might add). The stories and poems are about Connor’s life and how all the things that occurred in his life (including a rather heavy break-up) help with growth and self-discovery. He also shares ways us, the readers can take what is in ‘note to self’ and learn from them, as well as relate to them.

A beautiful book that is honest and real, that I think young people should read as a reminder that it will be okay and we actually can do this whole “life” thing.

Disney’s Descendants 2
Hi, I’m Jason, and I freaking LOVE musicals. Disney musicals never let me down, and the first Descendants had me obsessed – so will the release of the second one this month, I had to watch it! Descendants 2 shares a story about love, acceptance and togetherness, no matter our differences, and as cliché as that may seem, the way it is all put together and portrayed is like nothing I’ve seen Disney do before.

The very concept of the films being about the children of the Disney characters we all watched growing up isn’t magical enough – the story, costumes, music and choreography will have you falling in love with Disney all over again.

Candle
Whether it’s to fill a room with a nice scent, or to lighten up and create an ambiance in a room – everyone loves candles. I appreciate subtle scents, and this candle from MRP Home smells so nice and is packaged in a simple, monochrome, ceramic jar.
