June Favourites

 These are a few of my favourite things...


Beauty:

The Porefessional by Benefit

I can't say enough good things about this primer. If you watch MissGlamorazzi you'll know Ingrid loves this primer and for good reason. The consistency is so nice and I need barely any to get good coverage. I find I have really large, visible pores and this completely minimises them, and it's the perfect base for my foundation. Although it's a bit on the pricey side I think I'll be loving this for a long time.

Wake Me Up foundation by Rimmel

I've mentioned previously how much I enjoy using this foundation, it's definitely the best I've tried. I like how it looks on the skin, it doesn't make my skin oily or give me any kind of dryness, it's the perfect consistency. It also isn't heavy, has SPF 15 and moisturising properties. I know I ought to try others but I'll likely be getting this again as it's a great drugstore brand.


Le Volume de Chanel mascara

This is the loveliest mascara to wear. The consistency is really wet going on to your lashes but it dries quickly and never clumps! The brush is plastic as opposed to bristles (which I'd normally prefer) but it applies perfectly and evenly. I try to only use this for more special occasions as it's quite pricey and I dread the day it runs out.

Lip Sorbet lip balm by Miki

Whilst on the hunt for the perfect lip balm I stumbled across these little pots that I've had for ages. I know this isn't by any means an exciting product but it's been a favourite recently. I have a couple of strawberry, blueberry and passionfruit pots of these and they all smell sweet and taste good. In terms of something I can chuck on my lips when they're feeling dry these work great.


Bits:

Fashion-y bits I've been loving at the moment are tights and scarves. I can't stop wearing skirts and tights, I love Sportsgirl's hosiery and I recently picked up these and these. Scarves have also been my favourite accessory for this winter, I love taking a plain outfit and changing it with a scarf.



Another random thing I've been loving this month is tea! I love drinking tea, I probably have at least two cups a day, but usually I'll just have black tea with milk or chai. I thought I'd step out a bit and try some different ones recently.  I've been loving green teas, orange and mandarin, and my favourite, this strawberries and cream loose leaf tea from T2. Especially around winter, my love of tea kicks in.


Music:

My current favourite tunes from this month are Boom Clap by Charli XCX. This is on the soundtrack to The Fault In Our Stars and I fell in love when I first heard it. My other fave is We Are Done by the Madden Brothers. It has a really cool, feel-good vibe that's really catchy. My favourite artists of the moment are Ed Sheeran (everything he does is perfect) and Tobu, a music producer who makes melodic music that you can listen to here.

Please let me know all of your favourite things from the month in the comments!
