May Favourites

Seen as my slightly different post last month was such a success (I wrote about my favourite bloggers), I’m going to do a little mix up this month. It’s been quite a foody month for reviews, which if I owned scales, would definitely show. However, one of my favourites amongst them has definitely been the amazing box from Metcalfe. When they asked if I wanted to join their Metcalfe’s Topcorn Tribute, I thought it’d just be a small selection. But to my absolute delight a huge box arrived with eight different flavours and a bright pink wig. What more could I ask for? Thinking I’d put everyone in a good mood at work I took a packet along with me. Later I realised that this was a big mistake as I had taken my favourite flavour, chocolate, to only be devoured by my colleagues. However, it’s definitely a thumbs up from them! What an amazing PR team at Metcalfe and what tasty yet low calorie snacks. Perfect if you often sit and eat a bag to yourself as this way, it’s guilt free.

Another food favourite this month is a My Sweet Box Shop on Etsy that has just opened and kindly sent me a box to review. Being a big food fan, I obviously agreed and was delighted to see a real mix of different types of sweets, including one of my favorites, strawberry millions. At £8.49 it’s a perfect present to anyone with a sweet tooth, maybe even a cheeky little Father’s Day present? You can pick whatever sweets you like from a long list, and even request something that isn’t on there too. Which is convenient if you’re more chocolate over sweets.

A beauty favourite this month is the innovative new design of tweezers, the Pro Brow Designer from Barbara Carranza which has been making grooming my eyebrows easier than ever before. Barbara is an expert in brows and actually teaches New York, Paris and London. It allows me to create straight lines effortlessly and really pin point each individual hair that I want to pluck out. At £15, it’s a must have for any brow enthusiast. Plus, they’re the perfect shape for applying false lashes!

My absolute staple lip this month has been Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Liner in Sweet Pink, £3.99, with MAC’s Viva Glam VI, £15, on top. It stays on for most of the day and is perfect for when I haven’t got time to worry about my lipstick smudging or bleeding. It’s probably my favourite nude colour yet as it is just so effortlessly flattering on my ridiculously pale skin. Normally I wear nude lips to work as if it bleeds or smudges, it’s less noticeable than bright red, but with using the lip pencil it has meant that I stay puckered up all day long.

This month my hair has been loving Joico K-Pak Color Therapy Restorative Styling Oil and I’m just about to polish off my first ever bottle. My dearest friend and customer at lush bought me a bottle after visiting me a couple times in store and when she moved away to work in one of the top salons in Birmingham, she kindly bought me a Joico colour therapy set. Coming to the blog for a full review very soon. This oil is perfect for making my hair look and feel alive whilst I blow dry and straighten every last bit of life from it. At £16.95 it is a little pricey but definitely one to try out and fall in love with if you have dry, damaged, colour hair. It’s currently only £12.20 at Beauty Bay too!

The past couple months I’ve been absolutely depending on The Olive Branch from Lush to make my water silly soft so it doesn’t dry my legs out. I can’t bath without a bathbomb, bubble bar, or something more oily in my water any more so this is the perfect solution.  I can mix it with Other lush products if I want to go all out, or use it as a bubble bath on it’s own for a quick morning bath. At £15.45 it works out better to buy one than to buy a bath bomb for every single bath in a month. A wise spend, or so it seems if you don’t already follow me on Instagram, naughty me.
Finally, Dark Angels has been my skincare must this month for buffing my rough problematic skin down and keeping my oil under control. A must have for oily skin at only £6.40!

Just a couple favourites this month as for a couple other things I am during full lengths features instead so keep an eye peeled.
