Today I’m doing another Monthly Favourites, I haven’t done one of these posts since March because I don’t really try many new things because I’m at school most of the time but here is my May Favourites 2017!
I have a few favourites though that I have been loving over the past month or so – a few of them you may have seen already in my ‘What I got for my 18th Birthday’ post.
I have two beauty favourites this month – the Hourglass lip stylo in ‘Creator’ and Mac ‘All That Glitters’ Eyeshadow.
I had heard so many beauty bloggers talking about the Hourglass lip stylo and I thought I would look into it and see what all the hype was about. When my mum and I were in John Lewis I thought I would give it a try and I fell in love with it. When I first saw the list of names for the lipsticks I really loved ‘Creator’ but didn’t know it would suite me but when I tried it on it actually did which I was really happy about.
I got this Mac eyeshadow when I was in Dubai airport as I was looking for a new eyeshadow to wear on holiday. The lady didn’t actually tell me what the shade was called and when I looked at it later I noticed it was ‘All That Glitters’ which is an eyeshadow I remember Lily Pebbles saying that she loved.
I tried it on when I was on holiday and loved it and wore it every day after that. It is such an easy eyeshadow to wear and you can wear it alone or with other eyeshadows but it looks so beautiful and I have been wearing it every since (when I do wear choose to wear make up).
I have one fashion favourite this month which is this beautiful pair of embroidered jeans from Topshop. My mum saw these and ordered them for me and when I saw them I fell in love!
Topshop jeans are my favourite jeans because they fit me so well and they are so comfy – the only downside for me is that when you wash them they discolour quite quickly and because they aren’t the cheapest, this can be quite annoying.
I love the embroidery on the back of these jeans as they add a little bit extra to a plain outfit. I am definitely going to be wearing these the whole way through spring and summer.
You may have seen this items already in my ‘What I got for my 18th birthday’ post but I have been wearing them all ever since I got them because I love them so much.
They all go so well together and also go with pretty much everything I wear so they have been firm favourites for May and will be for the rest of the year.
I have been looking for a card holder for ages as I wanted something that I could just keep a few cards in and a bit of cash when I didn’t want to take my whole purse with me and when I saw this one on Asos I knew it was perfect.
I love the colour of it and it is such good quality because it is from Whistles and I can’t wait to use this properly.
Earlier this month Lily Pebbles and Anna Gardner, from TheAnnaEdit, announced that they would be doing a podcast and I was very excited about this because I am a huge fan of Lily and Anna and they are my favourite YouTubers and Bloggers so anything they release I get very excited for.
I have listened to all the episodes so far (only 3 at the moment) and my favourite one so far was with Kate La Vie.
I love how they have created something a bit different that isn’t necessarily beauty or fashion related and I really like that. I can’t wait for more episodes to come out.
The episodes are available every Wednesday at 6am and you can listen to the podcasts on the Apple Podcast app or the Acast app. Find it here.
I have also been watching the Vampire Diaries for the past few months. So many people had told me to watch this and finally I decided to give it a go as I needed something new to watch and I love it.
There is a lot of blood and guts in it as you would expect with a show about Vampires and I am not great with blood but I just try to ignore that part of it.
I am currently on Season 5 and am loving it – I do know lots of what happens in future Seasons like who dies and what relationships happen but that doesn’t really bother me and I am still going to keep watching.
My favourite character is Alaric for some reason…I don’t really know why but I think he is really funny and just great! I also love Damon with all of his witty and sarcastic comments. And Damon and Alaric’s friendship is just so cute.
I hope you enjoyed hearing about what I have been loving for the past few months.
Let me know if you have tried, watched or listened to anything I mentioned – especially Lily and Anna’s podcast as I would love to chat to people about it.
See you next week with a new post,
