May Favourites


I cannot believe it's the end of May already. 2014 is going pretty fast which does scare me! By the end of next month I'll be free from college, jobless (I'm only a temp) and hopefully doing my driving test. I think June will be a bittersweet one, I'm not entirely looking forward to it! 

This month I've managed to pile up a bunch of favourite beauty products! I've found some real good-un's that I'm planning on keeping around for a while! At the bottom of this post I've also written a little bit about my non-beauty favourites.

John Frieda Full Repair Shampoo and Conditioner
My hair is incredibly damaged. To the point where I pretty much need to chop of around 2-3 inches to get it "happy" again, but I'm not about to rush off to the hairdressers to get that done. A while ago I decided to just buy a few sets of these John Frieda Full Repair shampoos and conditioners and hope they would help my hair, and help they did! My hair is now very shiny, more healthy looking and my ends are softer! Of course it can't repair split ends, but it definitely helps the appearance of them. I adore this shampoo and conditioner!

Argan Oil
I picked this up a while ago from Savers, it was on offer and caught my eye. However I've only started using it within the last month. I've really been loving this oil as it makes the ends of my hair feel very soft and helps smooth it out (as I have very frizzy hair), I've also been lightly smoothing the remaining oil left on my hands over the rest of my hair which helps give it more shine and smooth down a bit of frizz. Hair oil does wonders!

Fake Naked 3 Palette
Yep, you heard me! Months and months ago I ordered this fake Naked 3 palette from eBay as I was desperate to get the palette, however I just couldn't justify spending nearly £40 on myself for one eyeshadow palette. After ordering this, the Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 came out, which in terms of pigmentation, looks a lot better than mine. However I am very happy with this palette, I'm really enjoying using pink-toned shadows at the moment, I've been using Burnout, Trick or Liar pretty much everyday! 

Body Shop Honey Bronzer
This seems to have taken over the blogging world! I am so glad I bought this bronzer, it has completely changed the way I apply my makeup and I've never felt so good wearing makeup. It gives me a really nice warm and healthy complexion, I just can't get enough! I will definitely be repurchasing when this runs out. 

B. Cosmetics Lip Gloss in Raspberry Coulis
My perfect everyday gloss, I literally cannot go a day without wearing it. It applies so nicely and gives my lips a bit of subtle colour. I think it's definitely a shade that will come up differently on different skin tones, etc, on me it's very natural and gives me just a tiny bit of colour. Perfect for work or everyday! 

Real Techniques Brushes: Core Collection, Eye Starter Kit & Retractable Kabuki
If you read my full review on these brushes, then you will know I only used a couple of the brushes when I first bought these, I have now found a use for all of them! It seems a bit crazy using so many brushes, but I cannot tell you how much different, and better, my make-up looks for it! They may seem pricey, but it's worth it!

Non-Beauty Favourites
I've been absolutely loving Iggy Azalea this month, I'm still to pick up her new album though! Rosé wine has been a bit too prominent in my life recently, oops. Die Antwoord released their new song from their new album Donker Mag, with a bit of a strange video - gotta love Yolandi though! I've basically lived in flat jelly shoes this month, although they broke (oops) so I've upgraded to a heeled pair! 

I've really enjoyed May. Although I've been poorly, we've had some cracking weather in Britain (though we've returned to rain just recently), I've had some good parties and nights out, lots of tasty foods as there's so many birthdays in May and some lovely times with my friends and family. 

How was your May? What favourites do you have for this month?
