SO at the start of July, the night before I headed off home for a fortnight, I was lucky enough to start my holiday with a trip along to the Body Shops Summer Event! Who can say no to a wee pamper night and hearing about all the latest products with prosecco in hand?!
Welcome back to my new wee monthly round up of things I’ve been up to and things I’ve been loving. So time for the June Edition…
What Have I Been Watching
June has been a fab comeback month for a LOT of my favourite series’! Handmaids tale – love, Killing Eve – obsessed annnd Love Island – guilty pleasure…
I also binged the whole third season of The Office US and if that isn’t your kind of humour, then sadly you are missing out.
I’ve decided to do a new little blog series. a monthly round up of things I’ve been up to and things I’ve been loving. So having said that, welcome to Mays Edition…
What Have I Been Watching
So this months obsessions consisted of binge watching Jane the Virgin (why am I so late to this party, I am addicted) , watching Ru Paul Drag Races final and starting to watch a new drama series on BBC called Years and Years.
So last weekend was pay weekend and I decided to treat myself to a small beauty haul.
Most of these are first time buys for me, so I’m excited to try and test these out. I picked everything up from Superdrug, Boots and even a couple things from Primark. I’ll update you in a future post on my thoughts. But for now let me share with you my little beauty finds!
Ahh, red lipstick, my current love. Be it a bright bold red or a slightly more subdued orange-toned red. Every girl needs a red lipstick in her makeup bag! It is the LBD of the beauty world. A timeless classic…
Before I properly get into this post I just want to make it clear that these lashes were GIFTED but it deffo does not change my personal opinion which I’m about to share. Also if you know me, you know my go to lashes for nights out are Eylure…
Time for OOTN/ Face of the Night post. So I thought I would share with you one of my latest night out makeup looks. Mainly because I have never been prouder of my winged eyeliner In.My.Life. And also because it was a special little night out as I had just got the keys to my new flat in Aberdeen and pre drinks were finally round at mine!
I’m currently sat here typing this post up surrounded by all my moving boxes. A break is seriously needed from packing. For those of you that have dealt with the stresses of packing up a flat and moving to a new city alone you will totally get my current feelings.
So all that being said, I decided to treat myself to a new face mask, my stressed out skin is so desperately crying for. And lucky lil me I actually had £25 worth of boots points on my card. Plus a face mask I had been excited to try had an offer on from its usual price of £28 to £23. So the choice was a super easy one.
MAC is a major love of mine! If I could walk in and out with a new lipstick each week, I happily would!! Ugh can you imagine it!
My love began back in the Christmas of 2012 when one of my best friends gifted me with my very first MAC lippy. It was Lush Life from the mineral rich collection, and yes, I have repurchased it! This is my one and only mineral rich lipstick in my collection, only because I prefer a Matte lip but these are perfect for when you’re just needing that bit of hydration and can’t cope with a full on matte.
