May Favourites | 12

I can't believe how quickly May has gone by... well almost anyway! May has been quite a nice chilled out month for me. I've loved the sunshine that we've had here in the UK in the last week or two, it has been lovely. I've got a handful of favourite's this month so thought I'd do a little post on it :)

Bobbi Brown's Shimmer Brick - Rose

I've done a post on this here. I love the shades and the finish it gives on my cheeks, I think it's stunning!

Hugo Boss - Orange
I picked this up last month and I've been wearing this more and more recently. The scent I think is great for Summer, it's light and sweet yet fresh at the same time. I love this scent so so much, the only problem is that it doesn't stick around long enough which is a shame I think. Despite this, I've found myself constantly spritzing this on during the day.

Barry M 273 - Raspberry 
I've recently been wearing this raspberry red nail polish on my toe nails seeing as the sun has made an appearance... as have my sandals. I love this shade as I think it looks good in both Summer and Winter months. Barry M is affordable and the quality is pretty decent for the price (a week on my toes and barely any chips!). One of my favourite red nail polishes by far.

Benefit's Boi-ing Concealer 
I've owned and have been using this concealer daily for months now and I probably haven't given credit where its due. This concealer works well for me, it's lasted me a long time, it's lovely to apply, gives a lovely coverage and doesn't look cakey or crease under the eyes. The combination of my Bobbi Brown corrector with this concealer has been the perfect routine for me. I'm quite fussy with concealers, it's a big necessity for me. I've hit pan on my Boi-ing concealer so have picked up a few cheaper, drugstore concealers over the last couple of weeks and have realised that I had a good thing going, so I'll be repurchasing Benefit's Boi-ing concealer - for me its a must!

L'Oreal Caresse Lip Butter - Tempting Lilac 
I have done a post on the L'Oreal lip butters here. The shade Tempting Lilac has been one of the shades that I have been reaching for the most. It's lovely and light on the lips and feels nice and moisturising once applied.

The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins
I purchased this at the start of a year as a birthday present for a friend. She read it, she loved it and then lent it to me. I knew this book was something that I wanted to read, even after watching the film I still wanted to read this. So over the last 2/3 weeks I've been working my way through this. I'm about halfway in and I'm really enjoying it. It's well written and more detailed and explanatory than the film (the film was pretty good though). It's a real page turner and quite a unique story. It's quite a popular book and I can see why. I will probably write a little post/review on this once I've finished reading it.
Accessorize - Hand Bag
I spotted this beautiful bag in Accessorize a few days ago and really could not resist! I love everything about this little beauty - the colours, the size, the fact it has longer straps which can be attached so it can be slug over your shoulders. I've really been loving Accessorize recently, there is always something in there that catches my eye.

What are your May favourites? I hope everyone has had a nice month of May :)


  1. I love the L'Oreal Caresse lip butters, they're gorgeous, and I'm also a massive fan of Boi-ing! I just bought my first Bobbi Brown shimmer brick yesterday so I'll have to see if I love it as much as you but I have a sneaky feeling I will! x

  2. That handbag is lovely! I didn't realise Accessorize sold such pretty things!
