Hey everyone! I can't believe it's July tomorrow! I know, I know, we all say this in every monthly favourites but really, this year is flying by so quickly. It's the middle of summer already, I really wish the weather would start catching up with how it's meant to be haha. I hear there's a big heat wave in Britain at the minute? I'm so jealous of you guys. It's pretty warm here like 20-23 degrees but it's so overcast and I just want it to be all bright and pleasant and get to wear my new sunnies! Speaking of which... lets move on to my June Favourites!
FASHION & BEAUTY FAVOURITES
Silver Shoes - I saw these on sale in Tesco for only €9.50 and I thought they were such a bargain considering they were €20 to start with! I tried them on and they were SO comfy but I couldn't decide whether or not to buy them because I wasn't too sure about their sparkly-ness. However I have worn these so much already that I know buying them was a good decision.
Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan Mouse - This is my sisters bottle, she gave it to me last week to try out and see if I like it before purchasing it myself and man do I like it! I never use fake tan but this summer I've gotten more interested in the possibility of bronzing myself up so I have been looking out for a good fake tan. This applies so easily and evenly. You have to take a shower 1-3 hours after applying it depending on how deep you want your tan. I leave it for just one hour and it gives me a gorgeous, natural looking golden glow. I will definitely be buying my own bottle!
Maybeline Dream Fresh BB Cream - I bought this for my holiday to Italy because I really didn't want to be using heavy foundation in the heat and this looked like a lovely light alternative with a spf 30! I have been using this all the time throughout June, I love it SO much. Since my skin is being really good lately (praise the lord!) this is all the coverage I need. It makes my face look very radiant and fresh and I feel like it's so much better for my skin than wearing foundation.
Soap & Glory Clean on Me, Flake Away and The Righteous Butter - I got the travel/trial size versions of these to see what they were like because I really didn't want to fork out lots for the full size incase I didn't enjoy them! I'm not really a body care person but I'm trying to be better. These are gorgeous and smell DIVINE. It sounds stupid but I actually prefer showering more since buying these, they make it so much more luxurious. The smell lasts on my skin and it leaves it so smooth and silky. I lurve!
Wet n' Wild Lipsticks - Wet n' Wild has only recently arrived in Ireland and I was very eager to try some of their products out since it's as cheap as chips. I started with the lipsticks. I bought 'Mauve outta here' a gorgeous purply-pink 'Barbie' colour and 'RoseBud' (which I couldn't find for this picture, forever losing lipsticks me!) which is a lovely muted, neutral red. These are only around €3 but they are really good, long lasting and non-drying despite being matte.
Primark Sunnies - I love these half frame sunnies from Primark that I got for only €3.50. Funky sunglasses are SO in right now and even though these are on the safer side I love them and feel 10x cooler whenever I stick them on.
MUSIC & TV FAVOURITES
Hilary Duff 'Breathe In, Breathe Out' - Ok I don't know about you but this girl was my childhood Idol. I was in love with her from about the ages of 9 to 13. So when I seen that she was back on the scene with a new album I was very eager to check it out and I am so happy to say that she did not disappoint. I love how Hilary is one of the few child stars who didn't go all cray, cray. Her music isn't entirely different to her past but it is a bit more grown up and edgy than her previous stuff. This album has got a dance-pop feel. I'm not the best at describing music but I would listen to this getting ready for a night out. Have a listen if you haven't already, the whole album is up on Spotify! My favourite tracks are 'Tattoo' (written by Ed Sheeran) and 'Confetti'.
'My Mad Fat Diary' - MMFD came back for it's final season this month! YAY! Although, I'm so sad that it's going to be over soon. I really love this TV series. It's one show that manages to be so deep, talks about issues we all struggle with, can be difficult to watch sometimes but can also be so so hilarious and uplifting.
So there we have it, some of my favourites of the month. Let me know if you are loving any of these things too in the comments section down below. Also, let me know if there are any products you think I would like and try out. I would love to do some more monthly favourites but I don't try a whole lot of new things every month that I could talk about. So I am definitely open for suggestions of some new things to try! I would also love to hear what your favourite music and tv show is at the moment!
