Lifestyle | Monthly Favourites June

Oh M Gee,

Where has the first half of the year gone? I mean summer is nearly been and gone! (I truly hope it hasn't though)
I didn't get round to filming or writing a May Favourites as I was getting way to excited for my holiday and One Direction, so June's Favourites are full to the brim!!

Soap & Glory's Orangeasm - Bumble and Bumble Seaweed Shampoo & Conditioner -
Scrunchies - Benefit Coralista
A lot of beauty purchases were made in June, this was due to whizzing off to Egypt as well as a trip through duty free. As summer is now in full swing Soap & Glory's Orangeasm has taken pride of place in my bathroom, its orange scent is amazing as well as it lathering up really well with only 2-3 pumps. As the day before going on holiday I had got my hair freshly dyed I knew I need to invest in a good shampoo and conditioner to make the colour last, in steps Bumble & Bumble Seaweed Shampoo and Conditoner. I know the price tag is hefty for this brand but I knew I needed to invest in order to make my colour last. This stuff has left my hair looking super shiny, the colour amazing as well as it not making my hair greasy 2-3 days after washing. A trip to Benefit's Brow Bar led me to an impulse buy when one of the Benebabes suggested Coralista would look amazing on my skintone. Yes I bought, yes I'm in love. This has been used every day and I just love the coral tones, perfect for the summer months and looked great on holiday with my tan. I am incredibly happy the scrunchie trend is back, I've been whacking all the scrunchies I can in my hair where possible. It's like being a little kid all over again, however lets just hope the named headbands don't make a comeback.

Cocoa Brown Gentle Bronze Gradual Tan - Victoria's Secret Bombshell -
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Potion Primer in Sin - Maybelline Masterdrama Chromatics Eyeliner in Turquoise Vibe

Once I was back of holiday I knew that I need to make my tan last so I turned to Cocoa Brown Gentle Bronze Gradual Tan. This is perfect for moisturising the skin as well as developing a tan over time. It also doesn't has that biscuity smell that some fake tans/gradual tans have. Whilst on holiday I decided to brave the coloured eyeliner in order to mix up my make up look, it was an impulse buy in Boots but I'm soooo glad I picked up Maybelline's Chromatics Eyeliner in Turquoise Vibe. It really brightens my eyes and takes my make up look in a whole different direction then what I usually go for. Talking of eye make up, I knew that with the summer months I should really invest in an eyeshadow primer to stop my eyeshadow from slipping off my face. I decided to opt for Urban Decay Eyeshadow Potion Primer in Sin, this has a little bit of shimmer to which is great for the evenings when I mainly wear eyeshadow and has also kept my eyeshadow on all night. And my final beauty favourite this month has been Victoria's Secret Bombshell. This was a must have purchase when I was in duty free, the smell is light and girlie perfect for over summer. I've been spritzing myself with this non stop since purchasing.

Lemon Squash - Prison Break - Ed Sheeran's X
Timehop App - New Look Sandals

Lemon Squash has been my go to drink wise this month. I love how refeshing it tastes and just can't get enough of it at the momment. TV wise I have been stuck on Netflix as usual ploughing my way through Prison Break, why have I left it so long to watch this show. It is on your seat stuff and some of the guys in it ain't bad enough to look at either. I can't wait to see what happens as the season go on in this as so far I've been left gasping at what has happened. My favourite singer has finally brought out a new album and it is like liquid gold for your ears. Ed Sheeran X has pretty much been on loop since I added it to my Spotify account, faves so far are of course Sing and Nina. If you haven't listened to any of the tracks yet I suggest you go and download the album ASAP! I've been loving looking at old statuses and photos thanks to Timehop, which if you don't know is an app for iPhone that links up to your Facebook, Instagram & Twitter to show you exactly what you posted on that day for as far back as you've been social networking. Some of the posts that have come up on mine have left me thinking what the heck? as well as remembering some really good times I had forgotten about. My last favourite is a pair of shoes that I never want to take off my feet New Look, has come up trumps with this diamond pair. I love the colour, the chunky heel and the gold detailing; also they are super comfortable. I wore them all day to work and my feet did not ache one bit! Bonus!!

And that is all my favourites this month. What a bumper edition that was! Hopefully next month wont be as long but you never know!
