May Beauty and Lifestyle Favorites

By  | 

Hi everyone!

I didn’t do a beauty favorites last month, I did a Giant Beauty Haul instead which, is fine! I really enjoyed it but, i did miss talking about all of my favorites for the month.

Hopefully you know me well enough by now to know it is a little bit of a ‘mish mash’ of things that I’ve loved over the month so, if you are desperately organized and need everything to be in perfect order, this may not be the place for you…

The first thing inside my may favorite is a vegan multivitamin my boyfriend found. I honestly didn’t used to believe in vitamins and supplements but since changing my diet and learning what works/ doesn’t work for my body these multivitamins have changed my life.

They have so many good things inside them and i noticed a dramatic change in myself when i started taking them. I would really recommend them if you are vegan or vegetarian and need a quick way to get your vitamins!

Next up is a beauty favorite! I did a whole review on this NYX translucent powder that you can check out here, should you wish.

I love this finishing powder, I wear it virtually every single time I wear makeup and love how silky and matte it makes my skin but, if you want some more detail just check out the review i made!

Next is the Soap and glory original pink body spray. I am a huge fan of body sprays. When i was growing up I was always attached to a can of impulse.

My mum bought this for me (I had no idea they even existed!!), I keep it in my handbag and spritz myself whenever i’m out and about. It lasts for ages and I also noticed that if you’re wearing the original pink body lotion and then you spritz yourself with this, the whole smell lasts so much longer.

Another beauty favorite for the month of May is my Sleek, matte me lipstick in the shade ‘Birthday Suit’. I did a whole review on this lipstick that you can check out here.

It’s been my go to lipstick for May and I’m still not bored of it!!

Next to the matte me lipstick is the Maybelline Brow drama mascara! We all know I love the brow drama crayon (review here) but, the mascara has been quite new to me this month. I love it as it keeps your brows in place and allows you to just add a little bit of color or shape if you aren’t committed to doing a whole brow routine. I love that it’s also really cheap and so much better than any spray I’ve used to keep my brows in place.

The Garnier micellar water you may have seen in my giant beauty haul. I knew i would love it before I even used it. It’s so gentle on the skin and removes every last inch of makeup, it makes me skin feel so clean and lovely, the only bad thing is I have already used almost half of it

Right next to the micellar water is some batiste dry shampoo in the ‘smell’ Marrakesh. It smells gorgeous and of course, who doesn’t love batiste?

I am a fan of sickly sweet everything and this is why i love the imperial leather marshmallow shower cream. It smells sweet and quite ‘marshmallowy’. You leave the shower smelling like sweets but, in a nice way! I love how it lathers, i love the smell and i am quite fond of sniffing myself for hours after to see if i still smell sweet…(I do!)

This is quite a strange May favorite but it has to be included i’m afraid and that’s this candle my mum got my from IKEA. Let me just get this straight, i hate IKEA. I cannot be in there longer than 10 minutes without wanting to sit down and cry but, i would brave a visit to the giant blue store for this candle.

It smells exactly like ice cream (i told you i liked sweet sickly everything). It is absolutely delicious and fills the room with the smell of a tasteful ice cream. It also burns for 25 hours which i looooove.

My two absolute favorite books of may are:

P.J. Tracy, ‘want to play?’ This book is a thriller and quite gory but if you’re in to guessing games and ‘edge of your seat’ books, this is amazing. It’s quite short but, i couldn’t put it down and honestly you are guessing right until the end.

Second up is by Lesley Pearce and is called ‘ The promise’. I would really recommend reading ‘Belle’ before reading this book, it’s amazing and makes this book an even better read. It pulled on every single one of my heartstrings and moved me so, again if you like to be thrown around and shocked every step of the way, invest in either one of these books!

Finally, is a beauty favorite! These had their own little review that you can see here but, I really love these brushes. I wasn’t a brush user and now i find myself in these beauties everyday, they were a really great investment to my beauty routine. favorite makeup brushes this month

    Awesome favorites love!! I totally need to start taking a multi-vitamin again! Thanks so much for the reminder! I am a huge fan of the Garnier cleansing water!! I have the brow drama brow gel and I love it! I know a lot of people don’t like it because of the shape. I think it doesn’t work for very thin brows. However, it works great with my brows too!! Awesome post!!

      I really love it! Some people aren’t so sure but it really works for me! The micellar water is an absolute life changer, if you ever see it grab some because it has changed my skincare routine so much. Thank you for the lovely comment x
