May Favourites

I thought I'd be adventurous and take outdoor photos to celebrate the beginning of Summer! Of course England being England, it's not consistently hot yet, more random sunny days followed by weird hail storms, so I was lucky to get these without being rained on...
I've got quite a few things on my love list for May, read on for mini reviews and links, and of course more daisies!

I bought the little version of this a while ago because I read somewhere that Rose and Lavender are good for calming sensitive skin, and it worked so well that I went back and bought the big bottle! It's really nice and gentle, I use it morning and night after I've taken my make up off and it really reduces redness and soothes sensitive skin. I loves it! (Name that reference!)

I stocked up on a few of these when they were on offer for 3 for £10 at Sainsburys, and I forgot how much I LOVE them. This version which is a deep conditioning treatment for dull hair makes my hair sooooo soft! I've got blond-y/brown hair so it doesn't make it mega shiny but it's definitely more sleek and less frizzy naturally when I use this! 

I remember buying this when it first came out a few years back and it's imprinted itself in my smell memory! It reminds me of summer so I always make sure I save it for sunny days to preserve that nice memory. It's so fresh and floral, if you like that kind of scent, go and have a sniff in boots and I'm sure you'll love it as much as I do.


This will be a forever favourite but this month, the shadows I've been loving in particular are Liar and Factory. I love using a wash of Liar with Factory underneath my eye and then  using my brown stila smudge stick. This takes me 2 minutes to do so it's great for everyday work makeup when I'm rushing around trying not to be late!

After using dry shampoo on my hair it tends to get quite dry and damaged, but when I spritz this on the ends it really helps to rehydrate it and make it look more healthy! Its smells lovely and lasts ages because you only need a tiny amount. When I was looking for the link to put above I also found out it can be used on skin as well as hair! 
Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs
Now that it's a bit warmer, tights aren't really appropriate any more so I've been forced to bare my pasty white legs! This has been my best buddy, it's so easy to apply and I only use the tiniest bit so it lasts ages! 

I have been using this all through May and have definitely seen a difference in my nails, I apply two coats and also apply my Burt's bees cuticle cream and my nails look better than they've ever looked! They do still get flaky occasionally after I've painted them with a colour but after reapplying this, they are strong again. I loves it.



I love breaking out the bright lipstick for Summer, and this is one of my all time favourites. It's such a pretty bright pink, with a lovely glossy sheen. The packaging is so luxurious and I just love it.


I do sometimes wear orange lip shades in Autumn but I think they look best in Summer! This is a really bright orange which can be applied heavily for a bold look or lightly for a subtle look. I've been wearing it with a bit of bronzer and black liner for a really summery fresh faced look.
So that's all for May! What have you been loving this month?
