Talyssa’s June Favourites

14 461

So the start of June is upon us, meaning half the year is has already passed!!

Seriously, where does the time go!?

June is when you really start feeling the cold I think.  Ahh winter.  I’m one of those people who get cold very easily, so winter is not the most pleasant of seasons.  My hands, during this time of year, are always cold. They hurt when I have to move them. They go all gross and dry and wrinkly…

Oh well, winter fashion kind of makes it worth it I guess…kind of…

Moving on..

Siree and I were thinking that it would be a nice way to start each month with a little bit of inspiration!
You know, to feel good and get excited about the upcoming month! HOORAY!

So here goes:

I’m totally loving..

Leather Pants!!

This picture confirmed my growing desire for leather pants, to one of a necessity. I.must.have.these.pants.  Unfortunately I think they are Prada, so unless I become a billionaire anytime soon I wont be owning them. Le sigh.

Now, I know, leather has become a bit of a trend with all the skater and pleated type skirts and such. Even the men are getting into it – which is all well and good.  But when it comes to leather pants, I really feel that some things should just stay in the realm of the FEMALE.  When I think of guys and leather pants, I can’t help but think of Ross in that episode of Friends, and his New Years resolution to try something new every day! lol.  Something about it is just a bit too much…

More on Ross and his leather pants here.  Watch from 1:05 mins in. Enjoy :)

Purchase Crush

Faux Leather Pleated Skirt: Dotti

I think Dotti from time to time has really great seasonal collections.  They definitely tend to go through periods of hits and misses, where I can love one season, and then they get their next batch of stock and I greatly dislike it.  This season though, I really really like.  I could have bought the whole store!

Arrow | Channel 9 | Wednesdays 8:30PM

I love my TV shows.  Whether they are on TV, or downloaded from the internet, watching and keeping up with an awesome drama is definitely one of my favourite things to do in my spare time.  Arrow had me hooked from the first episode. It’s supernatural, got heaps of suspense and action, has romantic tension and is based on the comic series “Green Arrow”  by DC Comics.  If that doesn’t have you interested, can I please ask you to scroll up once again to the image above and take a look at that face!  It only gets better and prettier when it moves and talks, ladies.  Take my word for it.

A Little Music “Pick Me Up”

Are you cynical about love?  Sometimes all you need is an old school 1950s gentleman to remember, particularly if you are single, that romance does exist.  Are you with that guy who just wont commit, yet he expects all the benefits (you know what I’m talking about).  Dump him I say! You are better off by yourself.  I have every faith a real man will come along!

Time Tested Beauty Tips by Sam Levenson

Contrary to what most people think, Audrey Hepburn did not write this poem, but merely recited it during her last public appearance.  This poem was a favourite of Audrey’s.


Now be gone and enjoy JUNE!!!

    haha perhaps watching that friends episode with Ross is the reason why I can’t imagine leather pants being very comfortable or practical at all, haha!

    Like your purchases, the skirt is so cute.

    I absolutely love the (p)leather trend! It brings a whole new texture and dimension to fashion. Personally I like matte black over patent black so that works for me :D

    I’ve never seen Arrow, is it any good ? I am yet to find a new series to really latch on to.

      Jay! Totally agreed about the texture and dimension!!!
      Arrow is seriously amazing. I love it!!
