June Favourites

Friday, 30 June 2017
June has been an amazing month, and I'm loving being able to spend more time focusing on something new. For today's post I'm going to share what I have been loving throughout June, including some beauty products, food favourites and what I have been doing during my spare time. 

June Favourites

Beauty

MUA Highlighters
MUA are a brand that I love to use and experiment with, because they're always bringing out new products and I never really know what to expect. When I saw these highlighters I never really expected much and I was so wrong. But I'm not going to speak any more of these as I have a WHOLE post of it here


Maybelline Dream Cushion - 01 Natural Ivory
At the minute, my hayfever is really bad and I'm not wearing mascara for that reason and so I've been going for a lighter and more natural makeup look. Maybelline recently launched this cushion foundation which also is SPF 20 (perfect for summer) and it gives enough coverage to even out my skin tone but its really light on the skin. One thing I will say though is that I don't like the cushion applicator (although I would probably use it if I was travelling) and I prefer to use my Real Technique Expert Face Brush instead. 



L'Oréal Brow Artist Plumper - Medium/Dark
As I have been going for a more natural makeup look for day-to-day, I bought this brow gel mascara from L'Oréal which has fibres within the formula, creating full brows. This therefore allows me to have bold yet natural brows, and it takes so much less time as well, which is always a positive to me as it means more time to sleep in the mornings. 



Simple Kind to Eyes Revitalising Eye Roll-On
This post is all about products that I've bought because of my hayfever and the most helpful thing that I purchased was this eye roll-on from Simple. Simple is one of my favourite skincare brands, as their products are all full of vitamins, skin-loving ingredients and they have no artificial perfumes or colours. The Revitalising Eye Roll on includes cucumber extract and multi-vitamins which help to reduce puffiness and cool down your eyes when they're feeling irritated. 



Food

Golden Popcorn - Sweet Love Story
OH MY GOODNESS This is the nicest popcorn I have ever tasted IN MY LIFE! I have a sweet tooth and I have been looking for an alternative to eating biscuits at night for supper. I feel like this amazing popcorn is a great alternative, as the calorie contents are lower than what I'd usually be eating, and I definitely need something sweet at night. I haven't tried the Salty Sea Epic or Sweet and Salty Dynamic Duo so I am strictly talking about the Sweet Love Story flavour but they definitely beat Butterkist in my books.


Tides, Portrush
My boyfriend and I had a lovely day together and I fell in love with yet another restaurant, Tides in Portrush. For my starter, I had the Goats Cheese Bruschetta, and although it turns out I don't like Goat's cheese, I did eat the actual bruschetta without it and it was lovely. Then for my starter I had 8oz Rump Steak that comes with tobacco onions and a gravy. It was all so lovely and we had a table right beside the window which looked out over the water. It was definitely the best meal of this month. 




Entertainment


YouTube
I'm quite into YouTube at the minute and the two I'm loving at the minute are PointlessBlogVlogs and Sprinkle of Glitter. The main reason that I'm really into watching Alfie Deyes' vlogs is that he and his girlfriend Zoe Sugg have moved into the most amazing house, so at the minute their vlogs are focused around decor, which I love. Also, I really like Louise Pentland's recent videos on her channel Sprinkle of Glitter which are about her pregnancy. I have been following Louise on social media for the past few years and I am so happy for her at the minute, especially since she published her first book yesterday, I've already started reading it. 

Love Island
At the minute I'm not binge-watching any TV series although every night I do settle in bed to watch the latest episode of Love Island. At first Jonny and Camilla were my favourites, although Jonny is starting to show his true colours and so my current favourite couple is Marcel and Gabby. They are honestly so perfect for each other. 

Paris for One - Jojo Moyes
I literally read this entire book within 24 hours, however I must admit I was slightly disappointed in it altogether. I have been a fan of Jojo Moyes since I first read 'Me Before You' and this book is actually a collection of short stories. The first story in the book, Paris for One, is absolutely amazing and I fell in love with the characters. However, the others I was disappointed by and I felt like they all ended too early and maybe were just too vague and could have been better expanded. Although I still read every one of them because they were all well-written. 


What's your highlight from June?

  1. I really like the look of those highlighters too, I've swatched a few and they're really nice! June's been a lazy month for me, but I'm liking gel eyeliners and pinkish/coral lipsticks :) x

    1. I'm just waiting to get some more, theres a 3 for 2 offer on in superdrug and the rest are calling my name. I love being lazy, I wish I could be lazy more but I've been working so much, since I'm home from uni, which I both love and hate. I honestly can't do eyeliner, otherwise I would be stocking up haha.
