June Favourites

I cannot believe I am writing out my June favourites… how on earth are we in JULY?! I am super excited though, July is looking to be a pretty exciting month. First up we have my birthday where I will be turning the ripe ol’¬†age of 22 (I can confirm that I will be having the T Swift on repeat all day). It is only a few days away now and I have not really considered any plans, birthdays are always typically a quiet affair, I do not like to go too over the top with them so it will probably be a nice meal out with the family in the evening and perhaps a day-time trip down to Old Leigh which is my favourite place to spend a sunny day.

Underarm Skincare with Dove

Growing up as a teenager, my one requirement for deodorant was that it would work it’s anti-sweating magic all day whilst I was at school. I just wanted something that worked and whilst I know that the risk of irritation has always been present (we have all been there) it is not something I particularly cared about until recently.

Bloggers Made Me Buy It

Reading blogs is a dangerous business I have you know! Full of beautiful imagery, wonderful words and then, the next thing you know, you have got a wishlist as long as your arm and you are thinking to yourself, ‘pasta for dinner this week then!’. In fact, before I discovered blogging back in 2011, I have no idea how I used to buy products without a recommendation from my favourite people online? Did I just use to go to the store and just… buy something at random?

Beach Ready Nails with Rimmel Super Gel

Gel manicures have hit the beauty industry by storm and it is clear to see why. Beautiful, long-lasting colour finished with a stunning shine you just cannot seem to achieve with your standard polish. I love a gel manicure; I am a classic nail biter so the longer a polish lasts on my nails, the better. Typically, as soon as polishes start to chip or start to look a little on the dull side, that is when the temptation to bite kicks back in so for me, gel manicures are well worth the extra time and effort it takes to achieve them.

Two Products in One from Stila

I know you should not judge things by looks alone but when I saw this little beauty on ASOS a few weeks back, I could not believe just how gorgeous it was and it was straight away in my virtual basket. I am always a sucker for pinks and golds so Stila’s Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye and Cheek palette drew me right in with the justification of ‘oooh, I can take this on holiday with me!’, saving space in the suitcase and all that.

The Lip Kit That Rivals The Others

The Lip Kit That Rivals The Others

Oh, I do love a good lip kit. I just cannot help it. Ever since Kylie Jenner gave the world her offering of now stupidly famous lipliners and liquid lipsticks in one little handy kit, many other brands have followed suit, some with better options that others. But, I will admit, as much as I do love them, that affair is typically short lived when I reach for the creamier, glossier options that give my lips the relief they need after long hours of sporting a fully matte lip. But, have I finally found the perfect lip kit?
