I cannot believe I am writing another 'Monthly Favorites' post! It seems like just yesterday I wrote the 'April Favorites' post! Where is this year going? 

This month I don't really have a lot of make up favorites. However I do have a lot of   skin care, perfumes and deodorants, lip & nail care products. I found at the beginning of this month that my skin had become very dry and rough in places and decided to purchase these skin care items in order to improve this. 

Rimmel's Stay Matte Powder 

After hearing reviews from my friends, seeing the hype on instagram and reading blog reviews I decided it was high time I went out and bought this product. Definitely the best decision I've ever made. Priced at just £4 this powder is definitely one of the best high street/drug store powders out there. One of the main reasons I love this product is that it definitely controls the amount of shine on my face and doesn't look too cakey once it is applied. The product does have one downfall for me though and that is that is doesn't come with a mirror. Saying that I'd still give this product a 10/10 as it just lives the nicest finish on my face and it also smells pretty good too. 

Charlie Pink & Shimmer Sprays 

These have been my absolute favorite sprays for literally years! I absolutely love the packaging, its such a quick and simple go-to product. I keep it in my handbag and trust me that when its a hot day, which is very unlikely in the UK, but CAN happen, its an absolute lifesaver. I love the 'Charlie' Spray range because they are so cheap and  good sizes and come in all different scents. I find that Charlie Pink smells a lot like vanilla with mixed fruits and Charlie Shimmer has got a tinge of orange and a blossomy scent to it. Both are very pretty and I think you can get 2 for £2 in Superdrug. That was the case when I got these two anyway but they are still very cheap and worth it. 

Pantene Pro-V Split End Serum 

When I buy a product normally it is because I have seen reviews and recommendations about it online. However this is one product I never really saw any reviews on. My hair is very long which means I get a lot of split ends. I've always been looking for a cure for that and then one day I spotted this item in Superdrug and decided to buy it. I am glad I did. I find it really makes the ends of my hair look very healthy and manages to tame my hair as well. If you have thick long and unmanageable hair I would definitely suggest this product.  

Cherry Carmex Lip Balm 

A lifesaver beyond words. I absolutely love this lip balm. I prefer it in the tube rather than the pot as I find it is easy to apply and you don't need to worry about dipping dirty fingers into a pot. I love the Cherry Carmex more than the normal one as I just find it more moisturizing and it smells delicious too! Definitely my favorite item to apply first thing in the morning and last thing at night too. 

Soap & Glory Butter Yourself Body Butter

Next to the Sugar Crush body butter from Soap and Glory this is definitely my favorite body butter to use. It leaves my skin feeling super soft and smells absolutely amazing too. Some of the ingredients include orange waterjuice, shea butter, peppermint oil and fruitliquid fig. Moisturising, delicious smell, excellent results. What more could you want from a product really? Definitely check this out if you haven't already. 

Sally Hansen Maximum Growth Nail Care 

I decided to purchase this a couple of weeks ago when I was wondering through Superdrug. The reason behind this purchase is because I tend to bite my nails all the time (horrible habit I know) so I decided to buy this to try and motivate me to stop biting my nails and so that they are able to grow faster.  I apply this every day to make sure my nails grow stronger and it is working! By the end of the first week I had noticed a difference as to how quickly my nails had grown. The good thing about this product is that it can be worn alone or with nail polish as well. I also make sure that I apply a new coat every day to make sure that I am getting the most out of this product. I love the fact it drys super quickly too. I'd definitely recommend this product if like me you are a nail biter or if you have weak nails and want to make them stronger. 

Wonderstruck Perfume by Taylor Swift 

Being the huge Taylor Swift fan that I am I was overjoyed when she finally decided to bring out her own perfume. The name of the perfume 'Enchanted' is named after one of her songs from her 'Speak Now' Album. The scent is very floral and girly. I find that there are strong hints of vanilla, raspberry and apply blossom scents which creates the most beautiful sweet smell. I also love the little charms that you get with the bottle, however make sure you don't carry this in your handbag as one of the charms are very sharp! If you are a Taylor Swift fan or just fancy a new girly sweet scent then I'd definitely recommend checking this perfume out. 

Soap & Glory 'Heel Genius' Foot Cream 

I have got possibly the worst feet in the world in terms of how dry they get. The heels especially get so much hard skin and dry up so easily and quickly that sometimes it is a nightmare. I actually bought this product a long time ago and then misplaced it and found it again at the end of last month. It is an incredible product. It smells absolutely amazing which cures the problem of smelly feet and leaves the feet very moisturized and prone to hard skin returning. I use this foot cream before I go to bed and put thin cotton socks over the top to make sure that the moisturizer locks in to my feet. I would say before bed is definitely the best time to put this moisturizer on. Definitely one of the best soap and glory products. 

Nivea 'Rich Nourishing' Body Moisturizer 

Nivea has been one product I have never been able to escape from. It is in every drugstore just staring you in the face and has always been in my house as my mum loves to use the facial creams which are absolutely amazing too. However I had never really used their body lotions before. I decided to purchase this a couple of weeks ago and I absolutely love it. One of the main areas that drew me to purchase this product was the fact that it had 'Dry Skin' written on the front of the bottle. It improves the texture of the skin so that it doesn't appear too rough and also provides long lasting care to ensure that the skin doesn't dry out. I would definitely recommend this product if you have dry skin and are having problems finding a proper moisturizer. 

Do you use any of these products? What do you think of them? What have been your favorite beauty items throughout May?

I thought that I would do a little series on my blog which will be 'My Week In Photos' just so you guys get to know a little bit more about me and what I do in my spare time when I am not running my blog. I hope you enjoy it. 

This past week I have had my younger cousin from Scotland down which was really good fun! We went sightseeing around London, done a little bit of shopping, went to the cinema to see the new Startrek film (which is AMAZING by the way, go and see it if you haven't already) and went bowling as well. It was really good fun having her down as I don't really know many of my family members from Scotland so I thought it was really good to finally meet her properly. 

2 weeks ago it was my brother's 20th Birthday as well so we had some of my family come round with my twin cousins and just had a lovely chilled out evening. It was really nice. Here is the week explained in photographs.

Hello Everyone! 

I thought I would do the 'Things I'd Repurchase' tag. Even though I do like to experiment with different products I also love to go back to previous brands that I have bought as they are amazing and just work really well for me. Now this post is normally meant to have 10 products, however it was very difficult to choose exactly what 10 so I have chosen only 7 as these are the products that are a no brainer and what I picked up straight away! ENJOY!! 









1. Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation: Now I've only used this foundation for about a month or so. I could never find what was right for me and one day my mum went shopping and saw this and decided to buy me it and I absolutely LOVE it! It matches my skin perfectly. I would say this foundation is medium coverage however it is very build-able so you can get a high coverage out of it. It leaves a very nice finish and its not too dewy or cakey either so I think it is perfect.

2. Mango Body Butter: This product was in my 2012 favorites part two ( click here to read ) and it is definitely a product I just could not live without. The smell is just sensational and this body butter just leaves my skin so soft and moisturized and really healthy looking. I am on my 6th tub at the moment so yeah this is definitely a product I love and would recommend to anyone if you love sweet smells and the body butters from the body shop.

3. Revlon's 'Just Bitten Kissable' Lipstains: I've been using this product for about a month now and I just absolutely love it. I have the 'Honey' one and it smells delicious. They are quite pigmented on my lips as well which I actually quite like and are very easy to reapply throughout the day too. I find that the finish it leaves is not too glossy but not too matte either, it is in-between the two which is very pretty. I also love the tingly feeling that you get on your lips once you've applied it as it is such a nice feeling. The peppermint smell within the product is very pretty too so yeah definitely a product I would recommend and one that I will keep on buying too. 

4. Soap and Glory's Sugarcrush Body Scrub: The Sugarcrush collection from Soap and Glory is my absolutely favorite thing in the world. The scent is incredible. I've just finished my 3rd tub of this product. I find that it really refreshes my skin and leaves it feeling so soft. I use it 3 times a week to help the scaliness of my skin particularly on my legs. It is quite thick when you apply it and even though I use it mainly on my legs obviously other parts of the body definitely benefit from this scrub too. I definitely feel like a new born baby once I've used this and would recommend it to anyone! 

LITTLE TIP: USE IT WITH THE SUGAR CRUSH BODY WASH AND BODY BUTTER FOR MAXIMUM RESULTS! 

5. Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser: I have been using the hot cloth cleanser from Liz Earle for about 6 months now and I'm on my third bottle. I absolutely love it. It leaves my face feeling very fresh, soft and clean as well which I don't feel with other cleansers that I have used. I find that it removes and melts off all traces of make up that is left on the skin which you don't really get with other cleansers. The cloth that comes with the skin is also very good when it comes to removing off the cleanser as it also exfoliates your skin too which is a bonus. One of the main reasons that I will continue to buy this cleanser in the future is because it doesn't make my skin break out in spots which I find to be the case with some of the other cleansers I have bought in the past. Definitely purchase this if you haven't already. 

6. Revlon Lip Butters: If you follow me on instagram or twitter and have read my 'April Favorites' post ( click here to read ) then you will know how obsessed I am with this product. The colours are beautiful, the packaging is just gorgeous and if you are not a lipstick fan like me then this is the product to go for. I wanted to experiment more with more pigmented lip products but didn't want to go straight into lipstick. I then saw a few youtube videos and read a few blog posts where this was mentioned and decided to go and buy a couple. The Macaroon one (pictured) was actually one of the more recent lip butters I bought but it is my favorite colour by far. I find that it suits my skin tone really well and just looks amazing on the lips. The colour stays on all day as well so you don't need to keep reapplying it which is a bonus as it means the product lasts longer as well. Definitely check out these products if you haven't already. They are worth the hype trust me. 

7. Lush's Bubblegum Lip Scrub: An absolutely amazing product. I use it in the morning and in the evening to soften my lips before I apply lip gloss or a moisturizing lip balm. My favorite part of using this lip scrub is licking it off my lips after I've applied it. It is edible and just tastes delicious. It is a much more healthy way of getting rid of dead skin as well especially if you are like me and used to use the toothbrush trick! (OUCH). I absolutely love the smell and the colour of this and would recommend it to all of you if you like your sweet and girly scents.

What are some products that you'd repurchase? Do you use and like the products mentioned in this post? Leave your opinions below! 


HELLO EVERYBODY! So as you can see this blogpost will be about my yankee collection. Now those of you who follow me on twitter and instagram and who know me in real life will know that I absolutely love the yankee candle scents. There is not one candle I have smelt and been like 'No I don't like that'. Most of the scents are heavenly. The above quote is so true as well. I believe yankee candles are perfect for those who love to spruce up a room with a nice fragrance. Yankee Candles can be quite pricey though. There are different sizes. There are small, medium and large jars, tarts, samplers and tea lights as well so there is plenty of options for what is best suited to you needs. 

My  collection consists of small jars, samplers and tarts and these are all pictured below. This is quite a long post so bear with me. 



As you can see I have quite a few Yankee candle jars. As well as these candles smelling absolutely heavenly one of the main aspects of them that I like is that you don't actually have to light them in order to fill a room up with scent. Just lifting the lid off the top of the jar will do the trick. Obviously you get more results from burning the candle but sometimes I prefer to just leave the candle uncovered. 

So I know the question on what everyone's lips are. What do each of the jars smell like? Well, just keep on reading. 

1. Bahama Breeze - This is one of my favorite scents and it is just perfect for spring or summer. The candle smells just like you are in paradise. It has a sweet scent but it is not overpowering and freshens the air perfectly. 

2. Cherries on Snow -  This is one of Yankee Candle's more seasonal scents and is perfect for the winter/fall season. It smells exactly like fresh cherries mixed in with a tinge of a minty scent as well which I love. It's perfect for those warm relaxing evenings. 

3. Christmas Cookie - I don't think I could express my love for this candle in a few words. The smell is just absolutely incredible. It has a very sickly sweet and warm smell. I find it smells of fresh dough as it is cooking. It is one of my favorite candles by far. Again I believe it is perfect for the cold warm nights! 

4. Pink Dragon Fruit - This was one of the first yankee candles I bought. I absolutely love it. It is a perfect summer scent that smells of those delicious summer cocktails. The scent is is a gorgeous fruity scent that just lingers perfectly in the background and freshens the air up. 

5. Pink Sands - This is probably one of the most relaxing and heavenly smells in my collection. It is very refreshing and has a hint of a vanilla and citrus scent to it. I absolutely love this smell and find it relaxes me more than any other candle I light. 

6. Red Velvet - Another sickly sweet but absolutely heavenly scent from Yankee Candle. This smells of warm brown sugar mixed with sugar frosting to me. It is an absolutely beautiful smell. I find it is more of a winter smell so perfect for those chilly nights. 

7. Strawberry Buttercream - I was introduced to this smell on instagram as this was all the rage at one point and I did think it was so overrated at the time. Nonetheless I decided to go out and purchase it and I must say it was definitely worth all the hype. This is my FAVORITE yankee candle smell by far. It smells like strawberries and whipped cream which are two my favorite things in this world so the smell is just amazing! If you haven't bought this then WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? 

8. Sugared Apple - This is the only candle from my jar collection that I haven't burned yet but I absolutely love this scent. I find the scent is a mix of apples that have been cooked and sprinkled with vanilla and a little bit of sugar. It is a beautiful scent and I look forward to burning it in the future. 

9. Wild Passion Fruit - This is the final candle in my jar collection. I bought this around 2 weeks ago and I just absolutely love the smell. It is a very sweet scent but it is not sickly and not too overpowering either. I find that the majority of the scent is passion fruit however there is definitely a tinge of melon there as well. It is a lovely scent that is also very summery. 

As you can see I have a lot of the more sweet and fruity scents that yankee candle do because these are my favorite scents. However I did branch out and by smaller versions of the more fresh scents. 


Fresh Cut Roses - I loved this scent so much I decided to purchase it in both sample and tart form. I didn't choose to buy a jar for this scent as I don't think I will use the jar as much as I would the sweeter scents. I find this candle smells of fragrant roses which is perfect for the summer or spring seasons. 

Beach Flowers - Another fresh scent from yankee candle which I absolutely love. I find this smells like lilies and blossoms. Not very sweet but not too fresh either. It has a very watery smell to it and it just perfect for the summer. 

Pink Lady Slipper - One of my favorite smells that smells to me like violets and rose petals. A beautiful smell thats also perfect for the spring time. 

Black Cherry - This is a very, very sweet smell which I absolutely love. It smells to me exactly like cooked cherries and is very strong but very pretty, especially in the winter. 

So that is my yankee candle collection. I do have a few more candles on my list that I will be purchasing in the new future however my dressing table is starting to get a little bit cluttered. Oops! 

Have you got any yankee candles? What are you favorite scents?

4. Pink Dragon Fruit - This was one of the first yankee candles I bought. I absolutely love it. It is a perfect summer scent that smells of those delicious summer cocktails. The scent is is a gorgeous fruity scent that just lingers perfectly in the background and freshens the air up. 

5. Pink Sands - This is probably one of the most relaxing and heavenly smells in my collection. It is very refreshing and has a hint of a vanilla and citrus scent to it. I absolutely love this smell and find it relaxes me more than any other candle I light. 

6. Red Velvet - Another sickly sweet but absolutely heavenly scent from Yankee Candle. This smells of warm brown sugar mixed with sugar frosting to me. It is an absolutely beautiful smell. I find it is more of a winter smell so perfect for those chilly nights. 

7. Strawberry Buttercream - I was introduced to this smell on instagram as this was all the rage at one point and I did think it was so overrated at the time. Nonetheless I decided to go out and purchase it and I must say it was definitely worth all the hype. This is my FAVORITE yankee candle smell by far. It smells like strawberries and whipped cream which are two my favorite things in this world so the smell is just amazing! If you haven't bought this then WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? 

8. Sugared Apple - This is the only candle from my jar collection that I haven't burned yet but I absolutely love this scent. I find the scent is a mix of apples that have been cooked and sprinkled with vanilla and a little bit of sugar. It is a beautiful scent and I look forward to burning it in the future. 

9. Wild Passion Fruit - This is the final candle in my jar collection. I bought this around 2 weeks ago and I just absolutely love the smell. It is a very sweet scent but it is not sickly and not too overpowering either. I find that the majority of the scent is passion fruit however there is definitely a tinge of melon there as well. It is a lovely scent that is also very summery. 

As you can see I have a lot of the more sweet and fruity scents that yankee candle do because these are my favorite scents. However I did branch out and by smaller versions of the more fresh scents. 


Fresh Cut Roses - I loved this scent so much I decided to purchase it in both sample and tart form. I didn't choose to buy a jar for this scent as I don't think I will use the jar as much as I would the sweeter scents. I find this candle smells of fragrant roses which is perfect for the summer or spring seasons. 

Beach Flowers - Another fresh scent from yankee candle which I absolutely love. I find this smells like lilies and blossoms. Not very sweet but not too fresh either. It has a very watery smell to it and it just perfect for the summer. 

Pink Lady Slipper - One of my favorite smells that smells to me like violets and rose petals. A beautiful smell thats also perfect for the spring time. 

Black Cherry - This is a very, very sweet smell which I absolutely love. It smells to me exactly like cooked cherries and is very strong but very pretty, especially in the winter. 

So that is my yankee candle collection. I do have a few more candles on my list that I will be purchasing in the new future however my dressing table is starting to get a little bit cluttered. Oops! 

Have you got any yankee candles? What are you favorite scents? 
So today I thought I'd do a blog post based on what is on my iPhone. I always enjoy watching videos and reading blogposts on new apps people have downloaded and I love seeing what useful apps I could download myself so doing a blogpost of what I have on my iPhone might introduce you to new apps that you might not have yourself. I will be including pictures so that if you are interested in any of these apps you are aware of what they look like. LET'S BEGIN! 

So I currently have the iPhone 4S in White and I absolutely love it. I can't imagine having any other phone other than the iPhone. So all you blackberry fans out there. You're missing out big time. BBM is worth the loss for an iPhone trust me. 

So when you look at my iPhone the first thing you will see is the lock screen. Now my lock screen is basic it is just a photo-set of me and my cousin from when she came down from Mauritius around 3-4 years ago. I love these pictures which is why they are on there. 


Now the next two pictures, if you haven't already found this app will confuse you because the icon images are completely different. The app that I have used to do this is cocoppa. It is a really cool app and has pretty backgrounds and pretty icon images. The app is pretty self explanatory but if you would like me to do a detailed blog post on how I managed to change the icon pictures please comment below. 


So as you can see from the above pictures these are the apps that I use the most so I have decided to re-order them and then change the images. This takes over my first two pages on my home screens. My phone just looks so cute and I love it. 

The third page of my iPhone just has the standard apps that come with the iPhone. These are contacts, phone, photos, messages, clock, camera, calender, calculator, mail, weather, maps and settings. Then at the bottom of the screen I have the general music, videos, safari and app store as well. I don't tend to use the iPod that is built in to the phone because I have the iPod 5 so I just prefer using that for my music and using my phone for apps etc. 


I never used to like to do this but more recently I have started to put my apps into folders, purely because it just looks more organised and also because the iPhone places the apps into different categories which I think is so useful and helpful. The current folders I have include adventure, which is games, lifestyle, utilities, photography, social and references. I also have the newsstand app which I prefer to use more on my iPad than on my iPhone. (Yes I have an iPhone, iPod and iPad. I do love my apple products). You can also change the names of this folders as well by just clicking on it and changing the names. (I will be changing adventure to games after this). 


So in the 'Adventure' (Games) folder I don't really have that many apps and the apps I do have I'm sure most of you already know about. If not where have you been?!?  I have 2 versions of Temple Run on my phone. Temple Run Oz and Temple Run 2 which I absolutely love and both of these are 10 times better than the first one so if you haven't got these please go and download them. I also have the 4 pics 1 word app where you need to guess the word that all 4 pictures shown to you relate to, candy crush which is a game where you have to remove the candy in a certain period of time and is a really fun game, angry birds and Line Play which is basically your own virtual character living in your phone so its similar to having a SIM. (PS the Buddha app is not a game its a quote app that should be in the lifestyle folder. Woopsie!)


The next folder I have is called the 'Lifestyle' folder. I have quite a few apps in here. I have Emoji Pro which is the app that gives you the smilies that you include in texts, Big Day which is a countdown app that you can use to countdown to a certain event (mine is currently Graduation!), Inspiration which is a quote app, Wanelo which is a shopping app, self help which is a motivational quote app that I absolutely LOVE, cruelty free which shows you a list of brands that test on animals, Myfitnesspal which I don't really use but allows you to keep track of what you ear, Cocoppa, Amazon, Dominos, Paypal and just eat which is an app like Dominos but covers more take away places. 


The next folder that I have on my phone is the 'Utilities' folder. In here I have more of the apps that are already built in to the phone which are the Compass, Voice Memos, Stocks, Reminders, Notes, Game Centre, Passbook and Itunes. I only really use the Itunes app to discover new songs and the notes app. I have then include 4 apps that I have downloaded as well which are Text Cutie which is like Notes, Yelp which is an app that allows you to find nearest restaurants, bars, gas stations etc, Nike + Running and Flashlight. 



The next folder on my phone which probably contain my most used apps is the 'Photography' folder. Now I absolutely love taking photos and editing them and uploading them to my social media sites so this folder is vital for me. The apps I have in this folder are Instagram, PicFrame which allows you to put your photos into collages (see my lock screen), Telly which is a video app, Youtube, Keek which again is a photo app, 8MM which I absolutely love and allows you to take videos with different filters such as black and white, old vintage style and yeah I love it, Mirrorgram which allows you to take a picture and reflect it, Videostar allowing you to video yourself singing songs and adding filters etc, PicFx which allows you to put light effects and filters on your photos, Diptic which is an app like Picframe, Snapchat and iPhoto. I use all of these apps DAILY. If you're a bit of a photo geek like me and like your filters and editing then please download all these apps. You won't regret it. 


The next folder is my 'Social' folder. Self explanatory this app basically contains all the apps for my social media. These include Echofon which is basically twitter, Whatsapp, Blogger so I can read blogs on the go, We Heart It, Facebook, Skype, Tumblr, KIK and My followers (for instagram) which lets me know who I'm following and not following. I also have 3 more photo/video apps in here as well as they wouldn't fit into my photography folder. These are Squaready, which is another editing app, Vine, which allows you to record videos and BrokehCamFx which allows to put light effects on your photos. This folder also contains my most used apps. .


My final folder is the 'Reference' folder. This folder contains my Bank app, the Google app which I prefer to use instead of going into Safari, Starbucks app, tube status which tells me if the tubes are running on time or are delayed and Wunderlist which is an app that allows me to create lists which is very very useful! 



So there you have it, these are all the apps I have on my phone. Like I said near the beginning if you would like me to do a blogpost on how to get my phone's app icons like I have then I will do a separate blog post! 

How do you like these apps? Are there any apps you have that you think I would enjoy?

    What are some unique facts about you? Leave a comment below so I can get to know some of you guys better! 
Hey everyone! 

So April was a very interesting month in terms of spending. I had bought quite a lot of items during this month. This is why I shouldn't be allowed a student loan. Because it just goes in like 2 weeks! But I love all of these items and I hope you will enjoy checking them out as well! Some of these items have appeared in my 2012 favorites as well but I've decided to include them here as well. So lets get to it! 

So the first item or items I guess that I have been loving are the Barry M Gelly Nail Polishes. Now I don't real wear much nail polish because I have a really bad habit of biting my nails quite a bit, however I was in Superdrug one Sunday afternoon, browsing the counters and the colors on the Barry M ones were so pretty and perfect for Spring time as well. I decided to get quite a few different colors as shown by the picture below

                  (Left to Right: Blueberry, Greenberry, Grapefruit, Prickly Pear & Dragon Fruit)

These colors are just the prettiest colors ever. I find these a lot nicer than the normal Barry M nail polishes because they are a lot more shiny and stay on longer. I also find that they dry quite quickly as well but maybe that is just me. They are priced at £3.99 which is just £1 more than the normal ones but I would definitely recommend them. They have many other different colors as well some of which area lot darker. I prefer the above colors though. This is probably because I tend to wear a lot of dark colored clothing and I basically live in a black cardigan so I think bright colors are the best choice for me when it comes to picking nail polish. 

The next item that I have absolutely been loving and I don't think I could recommend this product enough is the Revlon Lip Butters. Oh my gosh this product is incredible and I am just in love with it. I have started to build up quite a bit of a collection but the colors are just so nice. I prefer the nude colors as compared to the bright colors because I don't really like wearing bright colors on my face but I haven't managed to resit buying the bright colors. 

(Left to Right: Creme Brulee, Sugar Frosting, Peach Parfait, Strawberry Smoothie, Sorbet and Berry Smoothie) 

I really like these colors and I don't really consider them lipsticks, I personally think they are lipglosses in lipstick form. I think they are so moisturizing and are just really soft when you are applying it and I am in just in love with the colors. I could not recommend this item more especially if like me you are not a huge fan of lipsticks. These are priced at £5.99 from SuperDrug. 

The other items that I have been loving are the Real Techniques Make Up Brushes. Now I bought this in like the third week of April however I am in love with them. I have got 4 brushes and are the Foundation Brush, Detailer Brush, Contour Brush and the Buffing Brush as well. I got these in a set. 

This is what the set packaging looks like when it is closed. It comes with a velcro fastening which makes it ideal to carry around in your handbag if you are going travelling which is very ideal. 



                                   

This is what the packaging looks like when it is open. There are 7 slots in total but the set came with the brushes that are contained within the photo. As it is seen from the left of the photo there is clearly room for more brushes which I will definitely be investing in in the near future! 

                                 
The brushes themselves are just incredible. They are super soft and just glide over your face when applying make up which leaves a really nice and polished finish. The tips of the brushes are white which I actually really love as it means you can see how much of the brush is dirty and its easy to clean as well. The brushes each have what they are supposed to be used for printed on them which I find is a major plus. So in case you can't see there is the (top to bottom) buffing brush, contour brush (both of which I like to use for powder or blushes, a pointed foundation brush (which is just amazing when applying foundation) and the detailer brush (which I like to use for applying concealer and just hiding blemishes. I would highly recommend these brushes. Priced at £21.50 these brushes are a bargain price for how good they are as they could be priced a lot higher. 

Sugar Crush Body Scrub has been one of my favorite buys of 2013 so far. It is an absolutely amazing product and the smell is just to die for! Definitely Soap and Glory's best scent. It is just amazing. This product is super soft on your skin and just makes you smell absolutely amazing. 


In case you can't read the packaging the ingredients contained within the scrub are smashed brown sugar, sweet lime, almond oil and macadamia nuts and my god it smells beautiful! It is very sticky when you put it all over your body but it works absolute wonders and I urge you all to go out and buy it. I use this along with the sugar crush body wash and the sugar crush body butter so I come out smelling pretty sweet after but I love it! 

Okay so those are all the beauty items that I have been loving during April. Now I am going to talk about the other items that I loved which will include favorite candles, TV show and film. 

So my favorite candles come from the Yankee collection. If you know me and you are reading this then you know about my obsession with Yankee candles. I have about 12 small jars now, 4 tarts and a few tea lights as well. Slightly obsessed but I just love them. During April my favorite Yankee candles were the Bahama Breeze candle and the Wild Passion Fruit candles and these smell amazing. I am a huge fan of sweet smells and when I saw these two and had a sniff I couldn't resist anymore. 


I think these are both perfect smells for spring and summer so I'll be using these a lot throughout the next couple of months! The good thing about these candles is that you do not even have to light them to fill a room up with scent, just taking the lid off will do the trick. 

My favorite TV show throughout April was 90210. Now I had heard a lot of good things about this show but I never really watched it or got that into it. However, I became obsessed last month which wasn't a good thing when I had assignments and stuff to do but never mind. I just absolutely love it. 



It basically follows the lives of the pretty, popular and rich and how they struggle with their lives in Beverly Hills throughout high school and after as well. There are 5 seasons and I absolutely love it and find it so good. I would definitely recommend it especially if you like shows like Gossip Girl and Jersey Shore. 

My favorite films throughout April was probably The Audrey Hepburn Collection that I bought. It consists of four films which are Sabrina, Funny Face, Breakfast at Tiffany's and Roman Holiday. Being a huge Audrey Hepburn fan I just could not resist when I saw this for £9.99 in HMV! So if you're an Audrey lover this is definitely worth a purchase. 



So they are my favorites throughout April, I hope you enjoyed having a read and have been tempted by the things shown here. The beauty products are mainly from boots and SuperDrug so those are the two places to head to if you would like this products. 

I will be making more an effort to improve this blog and will be doing a lot more posts as I have now finished university for good so be sure to keep checking my blog out. 

What are some of your favorite items of April? 


April Favourites 2013

Hey everyone! 

So April was a very interesting month in terms of spending. I had bought quite a lot of items during this month. This is why I shouldn't be allowed a student loan. Because it just goes in like 2 weeks! But I love all of these items and I hope you will enjoy checking them out as well! Some of these items have appeared in my 2012 favorites as well but I've decided to include them here as well. So lets get to it! 

So the first item or items I guess that I have been loving are the Barry M Gelly Nail Polishes. Now I don't real wear much nail polish because I have a really bad habit of biting my nails quite a bit, however I was in Superdrug one Sunday afternoon, browsing the counters and the colors on the Barry M ones were so pretty and perfect for Spring time as well. I decided to get quite a few different colors as shown by the picture below

                  (Left to Right: Blueberry, Greenberry, Grapefruit, Prickly Pear & Dragon Fruit)

These colors are just the prettiest colors ever. I find these a lot nicer than the normal Barry M nail polishes because they are a lot more shiny and stay on longer. I also find that they dry quite quickly as well but maybe that is just me. They are priced at £3.99 which is just £1 more than the normal ones but I would definitely recommend them. They have many other different colors as well some of which area lot darker. I prefer the above colors though. This is probably because I tend to wear a lot of dark colored clothing and I basically live in a black cardigan so I think bright colors are the best choice for me when it comes to picking nail polish. 

The next item that I have absolutely been loving and I don't think I could recommend this product enough is the Revlon Lip Butters. Oh my gosh this product is incredible and I am just in love with it. I have started to build up quite a bit of a collection but the colors are just so nice. I prefer the nude colors as compared to the bright colors because I don't really like wearing bright colors on my face but I haven't managed to resit buying the bright colors. 

(Left to Right: Creme Brulee, Sugar Frosting, Peach Parfait, Strawberry Smoothie, Sorbet and Berry Smoothie) 

I really like these colors and I don't really consider them lipsticks, I personally think they are lipglosses in lipstick form. I think they are so moisturizing and are just really soft when you are applying it and I am in just in love with the colors. I could not recommend this item more especially if like me you are not a huge fan of lipsticks. These are priced at £5.99 from SuperDrug. 

The other items that I have been loving are the Real Techniques Make Up Brushes. Now I bought this in like the third week of April however I am in love with them. I have got 4 brushes and are the Foundation Brush, Detailer Brush, Contour Brush and the Buffing Brush as well. I got these in a set. 

This is what the set packaging looks like when it is closed. It comes with a velcro fastening which makes it ideal to carry around in your handbag if you are going travelling which is very ideal.
