This month I started a new job. I've also spent a little more than I'd like to admit. Amongst the mountains of new clothes and haul-worthy trips to Boots, there are a few things that I've particularly been loving in May.

1. Anyone who's been to New Look recently knows that they're on point when it comes to summer essentials. The sheer amount of floral prints takes me straight to the beach not to mention the palm trees! These high waisted Blue Floral Print Shorts are really flattering and add a pop of colour to any outfit. I wore them to a tropical themed party recently and fit right in.

2. Speaking of New Look, I can't get enough of the pineapple cup that I picked up from the Brighton store. I always have it with me filled with either squash or water throughout the day and it's definitely made keeping hydrated more fun.

3. Talking of summer, I've found the perfect holiday gloss. The Colour Boost Lip Crayon from Bourjois Paris in Peach On The Beach is the most gorgeous shade of bright pink and need I mention how much I love the name? The light formula gives a sleek application and it's seriously buildable. It not only contains SPF 15 but it's supposed to be waterproof. I can't wait to test it this summer!

4. Another beauty favourite is Hocus Focus Instant Visual Flaw-Softening Illuminator from one of my favourite brands, Soap & Glory. If you're on the hunt for a good highlighter, a tiny drop of this mixed-in with foundation creates a gorgeous under the skin glow. I've never really looked to Soap & Glory for make-up but I definitely will now.

5. Real Techniques - need I say more?

6. Finding comfortable shoes is always something that I've struggled with but these sandals from Primark are officially my new favourite thing. They're super comfortable and only cost £8! I've been wearing them non-stop for a couple of weeks now and they're holding up pretty well.

7. May has been a month of discoveries for me, including Essie. I've wrote a whole blog post on how much I'm loving Fiji at the moment which I'll link for you here.

8. Another nail polish love this month comes from L'Oreal. Rose Paradis (201) is part of the Color Riche collection and it's just the most gorgeous light pink. When I first saw these I thought it was crazy that they come in such tiny bottles but it's actually a pretty perfect size. When was the last time you actually finished a nail varnish? No, me neither.

9. I've never really been into L'Oreal products but this month I've been loving them. The Super Liner Brow Artist in 02 Blonde is literally God's gift to me. It has a brow colour on one end and a finishing wax on the other, throw in a spooly and you're good to go.

10. I also like Grazia magazine.

So, that's my favourites for May. What have you been loving this month?

  3. Hocus Focus sounds great, I have been loving their powder illuminator, Glow All Out, since I got it, so will be sure to check this out too! x

  4. I bought that at the same time, it's lovely isn't it. I think that I prefer Hocus Focus purely because the effect is more noticeable. Glow All Out is really nice but very subtle I find xx

  5. Primark and New Look are both doing great at the moment, definitely more in terms of footwear for Primark, their clothing choices aren't amazing at least in my local store. Thanks for commenting! I'll have a look at your blog now xx

  7. Thank you! I'm so glad you liked it. Couldn't recommend those particular sandals more, I bought a similar pair from Topshop for at least triple the price and they rubbed my feet raw. Sometimes cheaper is better I think! xx

  13. I thought I'd found the best liquid highlighter in skin wow from seventeen but it doesn't even come close to hocus focus and the price difference is relatively small. Couldn't recommend it more! xx
