I honestly didn't think I would be posting a monthly favourites post for June as I'm all over the place with moving! However I've been reasonably organised & made a note on my iPhone to keep a reminder of my favourite items during the last month & I packed them altogether so I could easily locate them for a photograph, if thats not dedication then I don't know what is, haha! (I actually typed this last week & since then my MacBook charger has gone walkies so I was unable to post it when I planned to anyway - typical!)
I recently found two floral crowns in Primark for a bargain price of £4 & throughout the month of June they've been my go-to accessory when my outfit has needed a pop of colour! I've wanted a floral crown for ages but I've always been put of by the price so I was glad to find these pretty ones. They are associated with Festivals but they can make a simple outfit look like you've put more effort in & adds a splash of colour to my very black wardrobe!
My favourite Shower Gel has been Soap & Glory's Sugar Crush Body Wash for the simple reason that it really helps to wake me up on those mornings where you would have appreciated an extra half hour in bed! The citrusy scent is fresh & fruity& makes me feel refreshed & ready to face the day.
I can't believe I am yet to feature the Urban Decay Naked Palette on my blog! This little palette has been in my life for almost a year now & I've got so much love for it. The packaging, the quality of the eyeshadows, the pigmentation & lasting power are all 10/10 for me. I mostly use it when I'm creating a heavier eye makeup look as I know it will stay in place, plus there's not much fall out whilst applying the shadows. My favourite shade is Sidecar which I often wear on it's own if I'm short of time.
I've been obsessed with the Sally Hansen Nail Polish in the shade 'Purple Heart' ever since Mimi gave it to me for my Birthday. It's the prettiest purple polish I own & the amount of compliments I get when I wear it is ridiculous!
As the weather has been warmer recently I've been applying MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle to achieve a healthy dewy looking glow. I used to find this highlighter very glittery when I applied it but I soon realised I was being too heavy handed, all thats needed is a gentle sweep across my cheekbones! It glimmers in the sunshine & is a lovely finishing touch to my makeup.
My skin has been in need of some TLC over the past couple of weeks due to the stress of moving. It's going through a weird stage at the moment, some days it can be dry & quite sensitive but then the next day it can be oily. Not sure what's going on but I've had some sore under the skin spots & blackhead build up around my nose so I've been applying the Soap & Glory No Clogs Allowed mask to relieve my skin. I find it comforting to use as the paste is self heating which feels really relaxing. My skin is left feeling clean & reduces the visibilty of any blemishes/blackheads I have.
Having thick, frizzy hair which is difficult to style I'm always hunting for products that might help to tame it & make my life easier. I discovered the Tresemme Treatment 7 Day Smooth on the All Things Hair channel when Zoella created a video for them on how to achieve sleek straight hair. I instantly felt intrigued & knew I needed to get my hands on it when I visited Boots but for some reason my local store didn't have it in stock! Thanks to Twitter the lovely people at Tresemme offered to send it me & I've since been using it each time I wash my hair! I can honestly say it's been great at keeping my hair straighter for longer, as I usually have to restraighten my hair the day after but I've been able to leave my hair a few days without needing to straighten it again.
I've had this pair of shoes hidden in the back of my wardrobe for a while now, I actually can't believe I forgot about them! It was only when I was in London I spotted a girl wearing them & loved how she had styled them that I remembered I actually had the same pair! She wore them with a pair of faded black skinnies & a loose jumper, so her style was really simple but I just love that effortless style & it inspired me to dig them out & wear them. I admit that at first they rubbed, but not quite as bad as I was expecting... considering they're just cheap shoes from Primark that usually kill my first I'm impressed that my feet didn't suffer too much damage! Now they've been bedded in they're really comfy & I actually spotted them in stock at my local store a few days ago so you might still be able to get them! They are also available in a nude shade which I'm considering going back for now!
