June Favourites

Leave a Comment

I can't believe it is July already, this year is going by far too quickly and its scary to think that this time last year I had finished my degree, where has the year gone!!

Sorry about  that depressing intro, here are the items I've been loving in June.

Beauty Favourites:

Lush I love Juicy Shampoo: So as I trying to grow my hair I am trying to avoid over working my hair, so reducing the amount I wash it (this is luckily easy thanks to batiste dry shampoo) and avoiding heat. So with dry shampoo in my hair, I feel like regular shampoo never really 'cleans' it, to the point that it needs washing again not long afterwards. This is great as it is a clarifying shampoo, though its made of natural ingredients, so no nastys are going to damage your hair. Many have said it leaves their hair feeling way too dry afterwards, but to me that just shows how clean my hair is and I just remember to do either a hair mask or a little extra condition afterwards and my hair is lovely and clean and last a lot longer between washes.

Impulse Body Spray (True Love, Secret Smile): As I go to gym every morning and some evenings, these are great to just chuck in your bag and go, they smell great, are fairly cheap and also don't have the weight of a glass bottle like a perfume. Also it reminds me of when I was 13 and used to douse myself with these and Charlie Red, like nearly a whole bottle in one day, oh dear!

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet (Ole Flamingo): I have only go the one of these and now regret not buying more at the time. They are really easy to use, so great for those who like a bold lip but haven't got a steady hand. The colour looks really good and lasts, I have worn this on a couple nights out and bar the odd touch up they really look bold, the one thing I would say when using these is DON'T forget to foundation your lips first as they really do have some staying power. I may have forgotten and woke up the next morning with it still on just in a slightly paler shade, OOpppsss!!!

MIO Futrue Proof: Now this stuff is amazing. I had read a few reviews of the MIO skin care range and decided to go  to Space NK in Manchester to have a look. I saw that they were doing two kits, which contained the more popular ones of their range in sample sizes, so I though rather tan going the whole hog I would buy these and test them out, a full review on these will be up once I have finished them, just so I can give a full and honest review of them. So from the sample of this I went ahead and bought the full thing, it is great it has the feel of a body butter, but dries within seconds which is great when i'm in a rush at the gym and don't have to wait for my moisturiser to dry. It smells great, doesn't have any nastys in it and leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturised for hours.

Non-Beauty Favourites 

Hotel Chocolate Cocoa Juvenate, Repose Treatment Candles: This was a birthday gift of my friend which I have been burning for a while and it has now burnt down to the bottom. I loved this it smells like a nice mens after shave, with and undertone of chocolate, which trust me smells nicer than it sounds. Its not an over powering scent and I would say it would make a great gift for someone who has everything, or the awkward person to buy for, which everyone has a friend like that.... right!!


I have been trying to eat healthier and snack on things that aren't mainly chocolate and crisps. The crisps I have replaced with popcorn as its a lot less calories, not as bad for you and then you still get the saltyness that you would have got from crisps.

Now the chocolate, that isn't as easy to replace, though I have now tried with Nakd Bars, Dates and Bounce Balls.

The nakd bars are made of natural ingredients that have been pressed into a bar, though they may not look that nice (they remind me of dog chews) they do taste really nice. The bounce balls also arent that appealing to the eye, but they do taste great (if you like peanuts) and also as they have a lot of protein in, they leave you feeling fuller for longer, which is great if your a constant snacker like me!!!


I haven't read this month as much as I would have liked to and you will see why in a sec, but the book that stood out to me was Ketchup Clouds by Annabel Pitcher. Though it is classed as a childrens book, I don't feel like its written like one. When I read it I felt it was just written as a book and didn't feel like I shouldn't be reading it due to the fact that it is a childs book. I mean I have read all the hunger games books (which if you haven't read them, 1 where have you been and 2 get them read asap) which are childrens books, but i loved them just as much.


These are the reasons I haven't read so much, having subscribed to Netflicks recenlty, soley to watch Orange is the New Black (which I have now finished series 2). I then became hooked to American Horror Story and Rude Pauls Drag race. AHS is basically horror stories in different settings, but the same cast is used in each series coming back as different characters, I love it and can't wait to watch the next series which is Coven. On the other side of the spectrum is Rude Pauls Drag Race, which is basically a drag version of Americas Next top Model, it does take the mick of ANTM in parts and I LOVE it, if you like ANTM you will love this as it is just a vamped up version, with more makeup, better catwalks (they look amazing all the time, god damn them!) and more bitchyness.

I hoped you enjoyed my montly favs, let me know what yours were.
