May Favourites

The one (and only) perk of being on a 'spending ban' is that you get to rediscover old loves and use up any products you might have lying around. Throughout May I really enjoyed using products that I'd forgotten about, but managed to find a new nail polish obsession, as each new month brings a new Essie colour. 

Firstly I rediscovered the Maybelline 24 hour colour tattoo in shade Pink Gold. I was obsessed with this during autumn and now I remember why. It's such a lovely wash of colour for the eyes and has looked really pretty and fresh during Spring. 

I bought the Sleek Blush By 3 palette in Californ.i.a  mid-April and pretty much haven't worn anything else on the cheeks since. Firstly, the cream consistency is gorgeous and looks so fresh and rejuvenating. Secondly, the colours are so beautiful, I adore peaches and corals for Spring. Then there's the lasting power... Wow! All day. 

For lips, I really enjoyed the Revlon ColorBurst Lacquer Balm in Coquette. Which is a lovely splash of colour that you can build up to whatever intensity you prefer. Really hydrating too!

I couldn't choose a favourite nail polish, but I loved Essie 'Mint Candy Apple' and 'Rock The Boat' and I think they look really cute together actually.

Massive shout out to Lush Rehab Shampoo! This has changed my hair completely and has really helped it grow. 

I also notice a huge difference in volume and texture when I use the Toni & Guy Seasalt Texturizing Spray. God send.

I'm going to throw in a book I haven't been able to put down 'The Hobbit'. I read it as a child and I'm really enjoying it at the moment!
