May and June favourites.


Wow, I can't believe it.. half of the year has already flown by! By the time I realised May was over, I thought it was too late to say about my monthly favourites - so I've decided to combine my May and June favourites. Let's begin!

Beauty Favourites

Toni & Guy Glamour Firm
Hold Hairspray
Toni & Guy Glamour Firm Hold Hairspray - £6.39 - I LOVE this hairspray, I've been using it basically every day of May and June. I'm not really sure why but I never used to really wear hairspray unless I curled it, but this hairspray does not turn your hair rock solid, it just holds it a little extra - I definitely wouldn't say it is 'firm hold'.. but it may be for an up-do. Either way, I'm loving it and will definitely be repurchasing it! 

OPI Rapidry Top Coat
OPI Rapidry Top Coat - £13.25 - I wrote a review HERE so I won't go on about this, basically, it allows me to paint my nails easier as it makes them dry much quicker - so for people like me who always smudge their nails, it's perfect :) 

Rimmel London Wake Me Up Concealer - £5.49 - I really like this concealer, but only really for under the eyes as it does have a 'radiant glow' so basically illuminating/highlighting, which is great for dark circles.. but not what you want for blemishes! It's not too thick, or too thin (great description I know), but yeah.. definitely try this - especially if you like the wake me up foundation.

L'Oréal Paris Super Liner Eyeliner - £5.55 - I have been using this eyeliner for a few years now.. even though I've only ever had to buy one - probably should have thrown it out a while ago! But I only occasionally used liquid eyeliner, whereas throughout May and June I have been using it very frequently, but only across the lid - no winged eye. I thought it had been discontinued, but I found it in Superdrug (thank goodness!), it's just so easy to apply - definite recommendation!

L'Oréal Paris Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Ourifying Micellar Solution - £3.33 -  This is a cleanser for the face, eyes and lips and is suitable for sensitive skin. It says that it 'dissolves make up, unclogs pores and removes impurities and tones and soothes skin', I use this to remove my mascara and a quick sweep of my face to remove most of my make up before I continue on with my cleanser.

Dove Summer Glow (Fair To Medium Skin) - £2.49 - Recently I've really been trying to moisturise all of my skin (rather than just my face), so I thought I may as well try to get a slight glow to my skin at the same time! It just gives me a slightly more bronzed feel - but very gradually, I don't put too much on.. if you do buy this make sure you apply it in circular motions and really rub it in - oh and WASH YOUR HANDS after :) Another bonus of this.. super cheap, and such a nice smell! 

Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint (Passion Fruit) - £3.99 - This is such a summer shade, it is so vibrant and bright - it'a a red/orange (surprise, surprise).. but it's also super shiny because of the Barry M formula. Great price, and great product! 

Non Beauty Favourites

Gold Tone Triangle Finger Top Midi Rings: River Island - £2 - I'm loving the above the knuckle rings.. I was slightly unsure at first, but I decided to get them anyway as they were only £2! And wow, they were definitely worth it.. they are so different, I love them :) 

MS MR - I love this band, I first heard them on Radio 1.. I have not stopped listening to them over the past couple months. And now, their album is finally out so I can listen to a whole album rather than just a few songs on repeat! I'm not even sure how to describe it, alternative pop.. not a clue! Seriously just go check them out on youtube :)

Crystal Fighters - Another band I have been loving is Crystal Fighters, they are an 'alternative dance band', their album is called 'Cave Rave' - I LOVE it! There is such a mix of songs, it's impossible not to like at least one of them.. but I love them all. I really want to go and see them in concert, I just need to find someone else who likes them!! Again, go have a gander at them on youtube.

Sorry that I had to combine my favourites, May and June were very busy months - exams and finishing college! But now that that is over, I'm hoping to put a lot more time into my blog :) Thanks for reading.. and please let me know some of your monthly favourites!
