I thought I would share a few of my favourite things with you. Some are old and some are fairly new. I have so many favourite things, so it was quite difficult to choose just a few. (Oh there’s a little unplanned poem there for you as well!)
Charlotte Crosby – Me Me Me
OMG THIS BOOK. When I was younger I went through phases of being a bit of a book-worm and then not touching a book for months and months sometimes even years. Then one of my favourite people Charlotte Crosby brought out her own book and I was straight onto amazon to order it. It takes a lot for me to properly get stuck into a book and not want to put it down and this book is the PERFECT example. I read it in 2 days and I LOVED IT. Charlotte is one of my most favourite people off the TV, she is hilarious, beautiful and random, so of course I had to buy the book. It is hilarious, I love the fact that every bonkers and bizarre story is completely and utterly true and those one liners of hers are just FAB.
Maybelline – Nude Embrace Matte Lipstick
A nude lip is my favourite kind of lip and I just instantly fell in love with this colour. I much prefer a matte lipstick to a liquid one, but don’t get me wrong I do like liquid lips too but if I had to choose I would definitely go for the matte. This just feels so light on your lips, it’s as if you haven’t even got anything on and another perk is that it keeps your lips feeling hydrated and moisturised, the last thing it does is dry them completely and make your lips look like they are cracking (which is a MAHOOOSIVE bonus).
Astral Face and Body Moisturiser
Now this stuff is amazeballs. Oh my gosh, I can’t even praise this enough. I’ve had this for around 3 or 4 months if I remember correctly and I promise you it is the best thing I have ever purchased. I use it every single day without fail, it is just amazing! I use it as both a face and body moisturiser, only because sometimes when I buy a moisturiser this size I prefer just to use it on my face so it lasts longer. But with this, wow, it has lasted me this long and I’m not even half way down the tub and this is the smaller size tub you can buy. It just feels as though you have completely revitalised your skin once you have applied it. I can get quite dry skin on and around my nose area and I have tried so many things but they always seem to dry it out even more, then I tried this after seeing some good reviews about it and I have never looked back. It constantly makes my face and especially my nose feel so soft all day and all night long. I apply this as part of my skincare routine every single morning before I put my makeup on and every night before I go bed and have taken my makeup off.
Wow I didn’t realise how much I rambled there! Sorry about that haha.
Max Factor Creme Puff Blush – Seductive Pink
I’ve had this blush for a while now and I even put it in my March Favourites post. I use it every single day. Even if I haven’t got a full face of make up on, I will always make sure I put some of this on. It gives you such a lovely pink glow and can we also appreciate the fact this blush looks like the planet Mars or something, it is so unique and just to die for. But you can’t tell as much how lovely the colour is from this picture as I have used quite a lot of it, but you can head over to my March Favourites and check it out when I first bought it!
Maybelline Lash Sensational
THIS!!! Right, so basically I have tried hundreds and thousands (not literally) of mascaras and not one has made me feel good about my eyelashes. My eyelashes don’t seem to be as good as other people’s lashes for some reason, don’t ask me why because I wish I knew myself 😦 They just never seem to look the way I want them to, UNTIL THIS! I literally love wearing this stuff, it made me so happy that I finally found a mascara that makes me feel like I actually want to look at my eyelashes. I think also because the brush is kind of curved, it helps a lot to curl my lashes up and give them that extra flick I’ve always wanted.
Steve Madden Sunglasses and Vaseline
I actually only bought these, not wait actually Darren bought me these sunglasses only last week. They are unisex sunglasses so Darren tried them on first, but then he found some other sunglasses he wanted. So I decided to try these ones on and I completely adore them! There were another pair that I really wanted but then as soon as I tried these on I just fell in love with them. It is literally like looking into a mirror when you’re looking into these from the outside, they are just amazing. I have no other words to describe them, other than I just love them.
Now last but not least! Vaseline. I literally cannot live without Vaseline, I take it with me everywhere I go (no joke, well except the toilet/bathroom/bed etc. but you get the idea don’t you haha). We all know what Vaseline is and how it is basically a lip balm in a tin that keeps your lips hydrated and moisturised so I won’t go into much detail, but this is most definitely one of my faves and certainly wouldn’t be without it.
What are some of your favourites? I’d love to know.
I hope you are all having a lovely week so far 🙂
