MAY FAVOURITES 2015
So this is a new kind of post for me but they're some of my favourite posts to read on other people's blogs so I thought I'd give it a go. I think it's important to appreciate the little things that brighten up each day so here are some of the things that have been making me happy this month:
Dairy Milk with Crunchie Bits
One thing I definitely couldn't live without is chocolate, I could give up all the other 'bad' things but I just need chocolate, it's my favourite food and cheers me up like nothing else! I've been loving the dairy milk with crunchie so much this month that I had to go out and buy another - it goes way too fast!
Tangle Teezer Compact Styler
I bought the special edition Lulu Guiness tangle teezer a while ago from FeelUnique when there was a sale but I've been really loving it this month. I've been well enough for a few trips out this month and this has been so handy to take with me in my bag because it's a good compact size and has a lid so the brush doesn't get dirty - genius! It glides through wet hair like nothing else and makes hair look shiny when it's dry, I'm never going back.
Di Palomo Wild Fig and Grape Hand Cream
We went on a trip to Suffolk earlier in the month and Mum bought me this from a little gift shop in Walberswick. It smells absolutely divine and is more moisturising than any other hand cream I've tried, and the fragrance actually sticks around which is nice. I've been keeping this by my bed and using it every day, I love it!
Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream
I got this a couple of months ago and have been using it pretty much every time I've worn makeup. I love bourjois bases in general, their healthy mix serum is another favourite, and this is just a really light alternative to normal foundation. It's really good coverage for a CC Cream, I'd say it gives a light to medium coverage and can be easily built up without looking cakey. When I'm wearing it I just feel like my skin can breathe and I don't want to scratch my face off by the end of the day, so that's always good.
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet 'Frambourjoise'
I've always been a bit of a wimp when it comes to bold lipsticks, I own quite a few but I've never really felt like I've been able to pull them off. And then when I have worn them I find that they wear off quite easily and I've had to reapply often and it's just all a big mess. I picked up the bourjois rouge edition velvet lipstick in 'Frambourjoise' earlier in the month because I'd heard so many people saying how amazing they are so I thought I'd give bold lips one last ditch effort. I've got to say I was completely blown away, this liquid lipstick is ridiculously easy to apply, the colour is a beautiful pinky-red (it's a lot more red than it looks in the packaging) and the best thing is it lasts forever! This thing survived a burger and a glass of wine without smudging or really fading, that's how good it is. You need to go and buy this now. Go.
Yankee Candle Peach Smoothie
This is another thing that I loved so much I went out and bought another. This is from the Yankee Candle 'simply home' range, which is a bit cheaper than the normal range and I think is exclusive to Asda. I'm a cheapskate so I just bought the little votive size for £1 but they have larger jars which I might go for when this runs out. It's just a beautiful, fresh, fruity fragrance (ooooh alliteration!) and I've found that the scent really does fill the room even when it's not burning, love!
Ear Biscuits is a weekly podcast from Youtubers Rhett and Link where they have a conversation with someone interesting from the internet - usually other Youtubers, for example; Grace Helbig, Tyler Oakley, Philip DeFranco, Hannah Hart, the Green brothers and so many more. I've been listening to this a lot whilst doing chores like laundry and cooking and just whilst relaxing. Every episode is just so interesting and often hilarious, they really delve into the lives of their interviewees and I've found out so much about Youtubers that I didn't know before. I particularly like the episodes with just Rhett and Link where they reminicise about their childhoods growing up together and other things. I find it quite soothing and it's something less exhausting for me than watching a tv programme.
I'm sure there's many other things that I've been loving throughout the month but this is all I can think of at the moment. I definitely think I'll make this a monthly thing as I've enjoyed noticing all the things that have been making me happy and being able to share them with others.
What have you been loving this month?
