It's A Monthly Thing: 10 Reasons We Love June

Summer days are officially here: think BBQs in the back garden, lazy afternoons in the park and picnics on a packed beach. When you feel like getting off your deckchair, get involved with our top picks:

1. All about Marilyn

Born on 1st June 1926, Norma Jeane Mortenson would become a 1950s icon, as movie star Marilyn Monroe. Mark her birthday by watching Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, one of our faves.

2. Friends forever

You’ve got 357 Facebook friends, but who do you turn to after a bad day? Show your gals some love on Best Friends Day (8th) with a Pink Parcel subscription.

3. Pedal power

It’s National Bike Week from the 11-19th. Get your pedal on with a range of rides and events suitable for everyone. Head to for more info.

4. Smell the roses

It’s British Flowers Week from Monday 13th June. Treat yourself to a bunch of beautiful blooms and support the homegrown florist industry - what’s not to love about that?

5. Thanks Dad

Where would we be without our dads, eh? Show your pa some appreciation this Father’s Day (Sunday 18th.) Send him a card, call him, buy him some (more) novelty slippers.

6. Summer high

Say hello to the longest day of the year on Monday 20th June. Mark the summer solstice at Stonehenge with an evening organised by English Heritage.

7. Royally amused

Whether you’re an avid horse racer, or just enjoy socialising, Royal Ascot hits the tracks from 20th - 24th June. Don your best hat and head down to the racecourse in Berkshire, or grab some snacks and plonk yourself in front of the TV.


Namaste! 21st June is the International Day of Yoga. Feeling bloated? Yoga is proven to help with some of the crappy period symptoms you may experience each month. Check out for our own tutorials.

9. Festival fun

It’s the event of the summer come rain or shine: Glastonbury is back for 2017 from the 22-26th. No ticket? Tune into the BBC’s coverage and have your own mini-fest

10. Match point

Get ready for Pimms and lashings of strawberries
and cream: Wimbledon returns on the 27th. The tennis tournament hasn’t had a British women’s winner since 1977. Could this be the year?
