June Favourites

It's favourites time again! I think I completely missed out last months favourites, so sorry about that. My blog has been looking a bit bare lately, but that's just what happens sometimes.

Two of these products were featured in my London Haul and they have since become daily staples. The Bobbi Brown lipstick is my perfect every day lipstick, it gives a nice wash of pink on the lips but nothing too in your face and it wears off really nicely as well. In the summer lipstick is the first thing I stop wearing - too much make up on your face in the heat is not nice (or very good for your skin) so I tend to strip it back to the basics. But because this lipstick is so creamy I have still been reaching for it on a daily basis. 

The next item I picked up in London was the Bumble and Bumble City Swept. I love the tousled beachy hair look and this really helps to achieve it. Definitely don't spray too much in else you can start to look a little crispy. But used in moderation and it really helps to separate curls and give your hair some shape.

Two old favourites have snuck their way in this month. I swear by the Benefit Porefessional primer, I put my make-up on a 5am and at 6pm it is still looking good and it is definitely down to this primer. I ran out a while ago and thought I wouldn't repurchase because it is pretty pricey but then I saw this cute little freebie with a magazine (sorry can't remember which one) and thought I would pick it up. This was probably a mistake because now I've remembered how much I love it I'm going to have to pick up the full size again!

Last make-up item is the Revlon cream blusher, as I was saying earlier I don't like to feel like I have much make-up on my face in the summer and too many powder products tend to make me look a bit cakey. I was always wary of cream blushers because I thought they wouldn't last and they would slide all over my face but this one is lovely. The colour is so summery and it lasts really well on my skin (normal-combination) it is almost a cream to powder finish without the heavy feel that powders can give.

Final favourite is a book. I am definitely late to jump on the bandwagon with this one - it's The Fault in our Stars by John Green. I haven't finished it yet but I am loving it. I find it quite hard to make time to read books, I tend to come home from work and spend my evening on the internet, but for this book I have made time. It is definitely an emotional one and I have shed a LOT of tears!! I know the film is out now, would people who have read the book recommend the film? Sometimes if I love a book I don't want to watch the film because it's never as good! So let me know!

Hope you're having a good week!



  1. That lipstick looks like the most perfect shade! I need to pick it up! :) The Fault in Our Stars is AMAZING. (cliche, eh?) But it is a hit for a reason, so happy you're reading it, definitely let me know what you think! I'd for sure recommend the film, the acting was amazing, and even though I knew what happened the tears were flowing... it was done so well!

  2. That lipstick looks so pretty!! The Fault In Our Stars is so good!! I would definitely recommend the film, it followed the book perfectly! :)

  4. That lippy looks lush - similar to Topshop's Beatnik I reckon (if you fancy a dupe!) but Bobbi Brown make up is one thing I will splurge on it's so perfect!
    I read the first page of the fault in our stars and just couldn't carry on! the voice of it annoyed me immediately - not my type of book really which is a shame seeing as everyone else is obsessed! xo
