MAY FAVOURITES | 2016


Micro Mini Beauty Blender - I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that Boots are now selling the original Beauty Blenders! I spotted the micro mini's and thought they would be the perfect thing for blending in under eye concealer, and they are! They fit right up in the inner corner and blend everything out seamlessly.

Beauty Liquid Blender Cleanser - I spotted this in Boots and made the quickest impulse buy I have ever made. But I'm so pleased I did! This is a cleaning solution specifically for your make up sponges and I was literally gob smacked when I first used it. I have never been able to clean my make up sponges properly they would always take so much make up brush cleaner & would be left with patches of make up on them. But this product has changed everything!!! I kid you not my make up sponges look brand new after I've used this, honestly I would recommend buying this if you use make up sponges, it will change your life!

Body Shop Vitamin E Night Oil - I've only been using this for about a week but I have been loving it. This is a face oil which you put on over night and it leaves your skin feeling so moisturised and soft the next morning!

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation - Everyone knows about this foundation but I only just bought it in April. I have been using it every time I do my make up and I can't get enough of it! The way it makes my skin look is beautiful, its the perfect amount of coverage for me and matches my skin tone so well. I have the shade mont blanc and it makes my skin look imperfection free and glowy. I apply it with my Real Techniques make up sponge and the finish is gorgeous.

Topshop Horizon Highlighter - I bought this highlighter and thought it was a good idea but when I got it home and looked at it properly I was a bit scared that it would be too dark to use as a highlighter. But I was wrong, I have been using this daily as it is gives the most gorgeous bronzy glow to your face. It is so pigmented and velvety, topshop make up is so underrated!

Lee Stafford Poker Straight Shampoo and Conditioner - I have been trying to reduce the amount of things I waste and the amount of unnecessary thing I buy recently, so this involved me collecting all of my beauty products together and forcing myself to use them up. I finally finished all of my shampoos and conditioners and allowed myself to buy a new set. I used to use this shampoo years and years ago and I forgot how much I loved it! The smell is so distinctive I just love it, but it is quite strong so it might put some people off. I love a shampoo and conditioner that leaves a scent on your hair, I have been using this all throughout the month of May and my hair has been looking and smelling lovely. I always wear my hair straight and this set helps to control the frizz and adds shine and sleekness to your hair, I think this will be one of my all time favourite shampoo and conditioner sets.

Aeon Watch - I have a bit of a love hate relationship with this watch, well not the watch just the brand. I bought this watch because I saw it on Tess Beggs instagram and I loved the look of it. I went over to Aeons website and had a look at all of the different styles and choose the Hallmark rose gold watch. This watch is £142 but I'm so glad I didn't buy it for that much. I think I bought it for about £95 using Tess' 40% discount code. I received it in a bubblewrap package and on the front it said that the item was a gift and that it was only worth £20! Now I don't know if that was to prevent the brand from paying extra or for me to prevent me paying customs but as soon as I saw that I thought it was all a bit dodgy. I opened the package and inside was my watch, in a cheap cardboard watch box with no instructions or anything. The watch I chose has a strap which isn't straightforward to adjust, it didn't come with any instructions to let you know how to alter the strap which really annoyed me, like honestly how hard is it to print off a little instruction page to put in with the watches? I looked on their website and there was no info about it and I asked on their instagram page how to alter it, I also noticed a lot of other people had asked to and these other people and I had no reply, but its not like they're flooded with questions as they only get a few comments on each photo they post. I love my watch and I managed to google the type of strap it is and found instructions on a different website on how to adjust it but the whole presentation and packaging of the watch really disappointed me. If you're charging over £50 for a product at least make it look presentable! Anyway I just really wanted to share this with you as I didn't want to do a whole post on it but I just wanted to make people aware of this so you know what you're getting if you come across this brand and order one.

Curtain Fairy Lights - I recently put up some curtain fairy lights all around my bed. You can't see them in this picture but the little fairy lights around the other products gives you a little taste of what I'm taking about! Fairy lights instantly make me feel cozy and they have totally changed how I feel about my room. The lights I bought hang from my ceiling and go all around my bed along two walls. They are bright enough to have on with out my main light on but not too bright that they don't give a nice atmosphere. I have been loving sitting in my room as the lights give such a cozy effect. The ones I bought have 8 different settings but I mostly just have them on static.
