MAY FAVOURITES

Hello beautiful people. Where on earth did the Month of May go?! Here in London Summertime is in full swing (periods of sunshine with lots of showers LOL) so I’ve finally had a chance to try some of my Summer favourites. I’ve been really liking a few things this month so without further ado, here they are…

BEAUTY

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair

This serum is a cult favourite in the beauty industry. The moment I used it I thought to myself “Why did I ever stop using this?”. Advanced Night Repair is one of the only two serums that I have repurchased (the other being Paula’s Choice Resist Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum). Every night I pat a few drops of this serum into my skin, it absorbs quickly and in the morning I consistently wake up with with clearer and plumper skin. If you haven’t ever tried this serum I would thoroughly recommend it for healthier, supple skin! Read my in-depth review here.

Urban Decay De-Slick Spray

As it’s been a little warmer I’ve been loving using this setting spray to prolong the wear of my make-up. After I put on my make-up in the morning I spray this into my face and it sets my face to a matte finish. I definitely see a reduction in oil production and an elongation in the wear of my make-up. If I’m going out after work I like to spray this on my face again after blotting and it’ll set me for the rest of the evening. This product is a must for anyone with oily skin.

Delilah Sunset Matte Bronzer (Medium Dark)

To anyone with my skin tone (NC42-44) you NEED to have this bronzer in your kit. This is the best matte bronzer I have ever used. It is the perfect blend of warm and cool tones, finely milled, long lasting for the dreamiest bronzed skin. There is a lighter version available too for fairer skin tones. For a full review see here.

Kiehls Avocado Eye Cream

This month I had some dehydration around the eyes so I’ve been applying an extra thick layer of this eye cream at night and it’s really done a great job at getting rid of dry lines and plumping up the skin around my eyes. It’s a simple formula but extremely efficient at what it does. For a full review, click here.

FASHION

Bershka Bomber

Bomber jackets are everywhere this season, I find myself wanting all of them! I picked this jacket up a few months ago from Bershka, one of my favourite high street shops, and I’m really enjoying wearing it dressed down with jeans and trainers. It instantly makes you look effortlessly cool. The print and colour are really complementary on my skin tone too.

Pieces Backpack

I’ve been searching for a black backpack for ages but always found that they were either too small to be practical, or too large, making me look like a school child! I found this backpack from Pieces and it’s the perfect size, the faux leather is really soft like real leather and the shape is really different to anything I’ve seen before. I will be taking this on holiday in a few weeks as the zip and clasp makes it pretty much impossible to steal from.

Rebel London Sandals

This pair of monochrome sandals from Rebel London are so pretty, smart and comfortable. They match just about any outfit so I will be wearing these a lot this Summer.

SNACKS

Food For Life, Ezekiel 4:9, Sprouted Whole Grain Cereal

Cereals are one of my favourite foods so I’m always looking for new ones to try. I came across this cereal and the ingredients looked amazing- freshly sprouted certified organically grown whole live grains, legumes, and seeds, no added sugar, no added oil, no artificial flavouring, 100% whole food full of vitamins and minerals. This cereal tastes absolutely amazing, crunchy and wholesome, I can’t wait to try all of the flavours. It’s high in carbohydrates and protein so I love having it with Greek yoghurt and fresh fruit before a weights session at the gym. It’s quite expensive (£5.50/box) but totally worth it, I bought mine online from here.

That’s all for this month my dears, please tell me what you’ve been loving this month in the comments section below!
