June Favourites

Sorry to sound like a broken record but I can't believe we are at the end of another month again! June has been busy busy busy because I've had a 90 mile round trip to work almost every day, so I feel like I've hardly had any time to myself, my bank balance has been crying at the amount I've spent on petrol & so actually I'm kinda glad to see the back of June. July should be a bit more chilled as I'm gonna be working closer to home from next week, I've got a trip to London for an event & to hang out with my lil sister! My monthly favourites are pretty minimal, I feel like I've been using the same products over & over and I feel a little bored of my stash so it's definitely time to have a clear out & re-organise. I'm on the hunt for some makeup/beauty storage so I guess once I've got that sorted it will all come together & I might even unearth some golden oldies...!

Onto my first fave, Lee Stafford Frizz Off Keratin Blow Dry Smoothing Spray, I spritz this throughout my hair after I've towel dried it & before I blow dry it. Usually when my hair comes into contact with heat it triples in size & becomes really unmanageable, but with this sweet scented spray added to my hair the frizz is under control & my hair is left feeling really smooth. 

I popped into Asda for some groceries, but ended up purchasing some new skincare items from their own brand NSpa. The Radiant Flash Serum has flecks of shimmer in it, something I'm always a little dubious about but I'm pleased to report it doesn't leave my face full of glitter! It gives my skin a much needed glow that looks natural, no more tired & dull looking skin - yay!

When I heard Topshop were releasing some of their beauty range in rose gold packaging to celebrate its 5th Birthday I knew I had to pick up a couple of pieces! Pastel nail polish seems to be my weakness & I've been wearing this pretty lilac shade in Parma Violet a lot recently. The formula is easy to apply & lasting power is decent too!

My final favourite is the St Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion, which at first I was disappointed with, however I'm glad I didn't give up on it as I'm now embracing my very first tan & I'm loving it.  As long as you make sure you rub it in evenly you'll be presented with a subtle golden glow once it has developed. It took me a few goes to get this right as I kept ending up with patches all over but now I've finally got a streak-free tan! It acts as a moisturiser too as it contains sweet almond oil, which gets bonus points from me as it leaves my skin silky soft. 

What are your monthly favourites?

  1. The nail varnish looks great, love pastel shades!

  2. Love the shade of Parma Violets! I'm so tempted to try the St Tropez tan but I just don't think it would be dark enough for me!

  3. Besides a very small streak from the in shower fake tan, I too have really been enjoying using it. Also that nail varnish colour is divine.

  4. I really want to some products from NSpa, I've heard some great things! Parma Violet looks like such a pretty shade too :)

  6. Some pastel pretty favourites here! Another lovely post! <3

  7. That nail polish looks so pretty <3

  8. Are the Topshop nail polishes good? The colour range is absolutely GORGEOUS but I'm dubious of a clothes store selling makeup like h&m which aren't anything special. I really want to try out fake tanning as I have never done it before but I'm just scared I'll end up as a giant orange! When I pluck up the courage I will defiantly use St Tropez as it appears to be the best one. Do you have any first time fake tanning recommendations?

    Much love, Ruby xoxo
