May Favourites 2014

Another month has flown by and so it's time for another monthly favourites! I can't actually remember the last time I did one of these but last month there were a lot of things, both beauty and non-beauty, that I was totally loving. I thought I'd put together a little post on those things, along with a video below if you want to check that out! 

First up, in terms of beauty bits there were a lot of products I really enjoyed using during the month of May. I was actually sent Benefit's Hoola Bronzer* as part of their 'How Do You Hoola?' campaign and after never trying it before I was really keen to see how it would fare. No word of a lie, I think I've found my new favourite bronzer. It's a gorgeous matte bronze shade that is so perfect for contouring, and lately it's been my go-to bronzing product. Sticking with Benefit, I had to pop Benefit's brand spanking new product into the mix - their amazing They're Real Push-Up Liner*. Whilst this isn't released until a bit later in the month, I've been trialling it over the past few weeks and I can't get enough. It is the most perfect blacker-than-black, long-lasting eyeliner that is seriously easy to use. I should have a full review up on it very soon! 

Sticking with beauty, another favourite of mine throughout the month of may was most definitely Victoria's Secret Love Spell Body Spray, which I've been spritzing none stop recently. It's a gorgeous mix of cherry blossom and peach which smells absolutely divine, and is great for an instant pick-me-up. In terms of skincare, Clarins has been my go-to this month. The Toning Lotion with Iris* has become my all-time favourite toner, and the Lotus Treatment Oil* (which I'm sure I've mentioned countless times before) has been my skin saviour over the past few weeks. In terms of nail polish, after going to Maybelline's event a couple of weeks ago I've been obsessed with their new 'Uptown Blue' SuperStay Polish* shade. The perfect shade for summer! 

Moving onto general faves, I've been loving keeping my phone topped up on juice with my funky little Anker Portable Charger, which was a total steal from Amazon for just over a tenner, whilst my playlist of choice has been Lorde's Pure Herione - a completely flawless album. I've been obsessing over statement jewellery, this uh-mazing Dotty P's necklace in particular. Finally, I couldn't do a May Favourites without putting this uh-mazing DVD in it - you guessed it, The Wolf of Wall Street. A completely crazy, hilarious film featuring the one-and-only Leonardo DiCaprio, it's a must-watch.

What were you loving throughout the month of May? Let me know! 


  1. This is such a gorgeous mix of products - the Uptown Blue nail polish is a beautiful shade and I'm dying to try the Victoria's Secret body sprays. There's not a Victoria's Secret shop near me, but so tempted to order them online.


  2. You have a lovely way with words. I'm dying to try a Victorias secret scent. Heard so many good things about them. I loved The Wolf of Wall Street too. xx
