May Favourites

Sunday, 29 May 2016

It really doesn't feel like two minutes since I wrote my last monthly favourites post, and in that post I remember expressing my surprise at how quickly this year is passing me by- now, yet another month has almost passed, and we find ourselves little more than a couple of days from June!

This past month has been jam packed of exams and studying for me, so I must admit that I found it rather difficult to actually think of some bits and bobs that I would class as favourites for May. Nonetheless, I managed to unearth several items that I have recently been loving in the end- items which consist of shoes, makeup and even beautiful flowers...



Flowers

I don't know what has got into me lately, but I have found myself falling completely in love with flowers! Since spring began a couple of months back, I have really cherished the feeling of seeing a beautiful, bright bunch of flowers about the house, and have even gone so far as to establish a little Pinterest board dedicated purely to flowers. 

The flowers in the above photo were some of my favourites that we have had in my house recently- sadly though, they were only the kitchen table, which leads me to want my very own cute vase full of floral beauty in my bedroom too!




Next up, I have two old favourites that I have recently rediscovered my love for. The first of the two is my MAC Politely Pink Lipstick- an item of makeup that I actually bought around a year ago, and have found myself reaching for again and again in the month of May. Politely Pink is absolutely the perfect lip shade for all occasions, as whether it be day or night, this light pearlescent pink definitely hits the mark. 

Mid way through May, it did get a bit warmer and sunnier here in the UK (although that quickly passed, and as I sit here now writing, it is pouring with rain outside), so such a colour of lipstick was perfect to wear with lighter makeup, and to just add that bit of a healthy shine to the lips without looking too much!


As well as my lovely MAC lipstick, I also found myself loving my good old Naked Basics 2 palette thought the month of May. After getting my Morphe eyeshadow palette a few months back, I sort of forgot about the one Urban Decay palette that I own, and in retrospect now feel very annoyed at myself for deserting this item as I so did!

However earlier this month, I decided to give this palette another go- after building up the gorgeous smoky shades as I once did, I found myself falling right back in love with these shadows. The range of colours in this palette is perfect to make a nice, simple eye look and also a more full on, darker one too. For that reason, I have been frequently using this versatile palette this month, and whilst I still adore my Morphe palette, I will be trying my hardest to carry on using this one too in the future.



I just love cute shoes, but for me I struggle to find gorgeously pretty shoes that are also insanely comfy. However this changed in the month of May, as after an earlier shoe disaster (and I mean a disaster- full of blisters and cuts all over my feet due to extremely uncomfortable shoes) I desperately needed some new shoes. That's when I stumbled (quite literally stumbled as my feet were hurting that much, that I was practically limping) upon this lovely little pair- from M&Sthe above shoes are not only very pretty, they are also real leather so are incredibly comfy and just feel like slippers to wear!

Since their purchase, I have worn these shoes quite a few times, and have been able to walk miles in them without sustaining the slightest blister or cut on either of my feet. Due to their neutral colour, I have also found them brilliant when it comes to pairing with my outfits- they go so well with skirts, dresses and trousers of all styles and colours, which is another reason why I love them so.

And that's it from me for this month- June is set to be a very exciting month for me though, as my seemingly endless tirade of exams will actually reach a finale, and I'm also going on holiday to California. Therefore, I am absolutely going to be back with lots more (hopefully) interesting posts about all manner of things, from details of my travels, to what I buy over the summer months!

Anyway, bye for now,
