May & June Favourites


If you've been following my blog for a while, you might remember me mentioning another Imperial Leather shower cream which I adore & have re-purchased countless times, but on a recent shopping trip, I noticed this one in the same range. The banana shower cream smells exactly like the foam bananas you get in the pick & mix section in sweet shops! (You might have already guessed that from the picture on the bottle..) It's the most delicious smell (if you like bananas!) & I surprisingly don't find it sickly sweet which I thought I might. Definitely re-purchasing this one!

Sleek Makeup Highlighting Palette - Solstice
I have no idea how I'm going to start even writing about this palette.. I guess I should probably have a go though! Ok, firstly, just look at it. Those shades (inserts heart emoji's x100) They are just so beautiful. I took this palette on holiday with me to Corfu & I felt like a princess sitting by the pool with my sparkly cheek bones. I've never loved a highlighting palette so much.

I mentioned this polish in my What I've Been Wearing On My Nails post at the beginning of the month & I still can't rave about it enough. Not only did it stay on my nails for a week without chipping, (with no base or top coat) it looks so beautiful for Summer.

James bought me this for Christmas & I have been wearing it none stop this past month. Usually I mix up my perfumes, but I've found myself reaching for it on a daily basis. It has the most beautiful scent, I'd definitely recommend the body shop eau de toilettes if you haven't tried them, they last for ages!

I reviewed these lipsticks a few weeks ago along with the shades Red & Pink, but these two are definitely my favourites. Probably not the most appealing shades for this time of year, but as I mentioned in my review post, I've never owned a purple lipstick before & I'm so glad I decided to pick this one up! Head over to my post to read more about it!

I received this for my birthday in January in a set of three (lip scrub, lip tint & lip gloss) & will be doing a full review on them soon, but I couldn't not include the lip scrub in my favourites as I've been using it most days this month! Ever since I ran out of my Bubblegum Lip Scrub from Lush, I've been on the hunt for a cheaper alternative. I was so glad this one came into my life. Not only does it smell so nice, it leaves my lips feeling so soft & ready for my lipstick. The packaging is also super cute!

Events

Right at the end of April, we celebrated Elisa's hen do by going for dinner, cocktails & pottery painting. It was such a lovely celebration & at the end of May, she tied the knot with Jamie in our local church. It was such a perfect day & I feel massively special to be apart of it.

At the beginning of May, I travelled to Gloucester to see James for the final time as he has now finished uni! I still can't quite believe it but we are now starting a new chapter in our lives together by looking for our own place. Amazing how quick those three years have passed.

Oh I got my ear pierced! Not a massive achievement to some but it was something on my bucket list & I was so pleased I did it even though it hurt like hell.. haha!

I got to see Busted at the end of May with my girls, they were simply amazing live! We did see them when they were originally a group back in the early 2000's, so it was lovely to see them all again!

One of the most exciting things to happen this month was James & I got to see The Sidemen play at a charity football match in Southampton. We've followed the group for a while now on YouTube & it was extra special as it was my first football match. (Normally I seriously cba with football, but this was different!) They were all so amazing, so pleased I managed to get tickets!

& finally a massive highlight of this month has to be our holiday to Corfu. I got back yesterday & have a serious case of the holiday blues! There are no words to describe how amazing it was. Keep an eye out for a vlog soon!

What have you been loving this month? : )
