Hello lovelies ,
So this is the first ever time I’ve done a monthly favourites! I know everyone seems to do it but I’ve had so many things I want to share with you , I couldn’t resist! So here are a selection of products and things I’ve been obsessing over this month!
Beauty and Skin Care
- Body Shop Aloe Vera Cleanser
I have extremely sensitive , dry skin and I seem to react to most skincare products. I can’t use anything scented and since this is made from mostly natural products , there is no harsh chemicals in it. I would definitely recommend the Aloe Vera range to anyone with sensitive skin like mine. Ever since , I started using this my skin has hardly any major breakouts and it makes my skin feel so refreshed after it. I definitely want to try some more of their Aloe Vera skin care products especially their toner!
- Colourpop Ultra Satin Lipstick – Point Zero
I only recently got my hands on some Colourpop products and I’m absolutely obsessed. Point Zero is the perfect cool toned brown nude , perhaps not the most spring colour but nevertheless it goes with any makeup look. I’ve done an in depth review on them , if you would like to find out more – Colourpop Review
- A Series of Unfortunate Events
This has been out for quite a while now but I absolutely love it , it’s so funny and easy to watch. It only has 8 episodes but I quite like this because it doesn’t drag on like some series , that I end up getting fed up of. It’s one of those series that you just binge watch and is quite different to the usual things I tend to watch . I’ve even got my mum addicted to it and I’m absolutely desperate for the next series !
- 13 Reasons Why
This has been on my watch list ever since the trailer came out and I was so excited when the series was finally released! I’ve only watched the first episode and I’m already hooked. I like the fact netflix has done a series about a more sensitive subject and raises awareness about teen suicide. Honestly , I think absolutely everyone should watch this as it makes you realise that everyone is fighting their own battle and that words affect everyone. It’s about this girl who has committed suicide and two weeks after her tragic death , a mysterious box full of recordings (made by Hannah) is left on Clay’s porch . On the recordings Hannah explains the 13 reasons why she decided to commit suicide and Clay has to listen to find out if he is one of the reasons why she did. It is so gripping but really sad at the same time. I know I’ll have finished it by the end of this week!
- Ed Sheeran – Divide
I don’t think this album isn’t in anyone’s favourites this month! It’s so amazing and I was so excited when it was released because I am a massive Ed Sheeran fan ! I’ve had this album on repeat ! I’m genuinely obsessed !I tried to get tickets to his tour but unfortunately they had all sold out 😦 . Anyway , my favourite songs on the album have to be Supermarket Flowers as it is so emotional and so beautiful , it makes me cry everytime . I also love New Man , Nancy Mulligan and What do I Know , they are so happy and makes me smile ! What are your favourites ?
- The Chainsmokers & Coldplay – Something Just Like This
Not many people know this about me , I absolutely love Coldplay ! A lot of people are surprised when they find their songs on my playlist but I know all the words to most of their songs! I don’t know what it is about Chris Martins voice but it makes me so relaxed and happy ! He’s also a genuinely nice person , I’ve never met him but when I saw him on James Corden Carpool Kareoke, I love him even more!
- Me Before You
Can you believe I’ve only just watched this? It’s been out so long and is such a beautiful , heartbreaking film. I watched it in my GCSE RE class as we were doing all about euthanasia and I swear almost all of us girls were in tears. It’s a love story about this eccentric , positive girl (Louisa Clark) and this wealthy young banker (Will Traynor) who was in an accident two years ago and as a result of this is paralysed. Louise becomes a carer for Will so she has enough money to help her family. Will has an extremely negative outlook on life and wants to commit euthanasia (assisted suicide) as he feels like his life isn’t worth living. This is until Louisa starts to show him that life is actually worth living and their bond gets bigger and stronger than they could ever have imagined. I’m not going to say anything else apart from the fact you definitely need to watch it (and bring some tissues)!
- Beauty and The Beast
I have only just managed to see this in cinema and I can see why everyone loves it! I’ve been desperate to see this ever since it came out and I first saw the trailer. The songs in it are incredible and so is the movie in general ! I’m a huge Disney fan and this did not disappoint at all! It’s not my favourite Disney film ever but it is such a good one to watch . I’d definitely recommend you going to see it as I’m sure you’ll love it as much as everyone else does!
The outfit I’ve been wearing a lot this month is quite casual but I love it! I tend to wear lots of neutral colours , nothing too adventurous , and I’ve been looking everywhere for a burgundy hoodie and I finally found one! It’s from H&M , it was £12 , and it is meant to be cropped but on me it isn’t because I’m so short! It goes with everything and is so comfortable and easy to wear. My top is also from H&M , it was £8.99 and I love that it says coachella on it because it’s the festival I desperately want to go to! My jeans are in the wash but they were £30 from Next and they are so comfortable and they don’t fade either like Topshop jeans. My trainers are Converse All Stars and I think were around £40.
- Beauty Spectrum
I have been subscribed to Molly’s channel ever since I can remember. She has to be one of my favourite youtubers , she’s so down to earth , so funny and so gorgeous , I could go on. I love all her main channel videos , especially the beauty ones but her vlogs are definitely my favourite! She’s so hard working and she always gets at least one vlog up each week. She’s got so many amazing opportunities from YouTube and I couldn’t be prouder of her , she deserves absolutely everything she gets. I’d definitely recommend checking out her channel because I’m sure you’ll love her just as much as I do.
- Makeup By Leyla
Can we just stop for a second and appreciate Leyla’s insane makeup skills! I have only just discovered Layla’s channel and Instagram and honestly her makeup skills is my inspiration! She is so gorgeous and in every video she looks flawless! Her tutorials are so easy to follow and she doesn’t just use all high end products like many youtubers tend to do so you can easily recreate them!
I have only recently come across Emma’s blog and honestly it is ultimate blog goals! Her photos are incredible , her content is so well written and really creative. My personal favourite post of hers , this month has to be How to Make Your Own Ripped Jeans , and I am definitely going to be giving it a try. She seems so lovely, and I have read every post of hers and they are all absolutely amazing!
So these are a selection of the things I’ve been loving this month. Have you been loving anything that I have and what are some of your favourites?
