Good morning everyone and happy Friday! I’m sorry that my monthly favourites blog is coming out a few days late. It’s been a busy half term and I am finally getting some time to write this blog post so without further ado, let’s get into this months favourites. *This blog post contains gifted items.
Let’s talk beauty and skincare. First up, a trusty favourite from No 7 – the skin illuminator. Now the weather is getting warmer, I try to wear less makeup on my skin and this is perfect for that light coverage. I use the Simple booster drops with SPF 30 first and then pop this over the top. The two products together give you a gorgeous glow whilst protecting your skin from UV rays. As part of my summer makeup routine, I also like to use the Burts Bees All Aglow. It is THE only bronzer I use in the summer months – it isn’t drying or cakey and just adds that bit of extra warmth to your complexion.
Next up is this gorgeous Barry M nail varnish. I absolutely love a dark red toe nail in the summer months and this was just what I was looking for. This is the shade ‘French Rose’ and they have a few other gorgeous pinky tones in their ‘Rose Tinted’ range.
Last up for this month’s skincare favourites is the Typology charcoal mask with organic nettle *gifted/pr. I have been a huge fan of Typology for a while and have mentioned them in a few of my blogs. This mask is refreshing, thick and leaves my skin feeling so clean and replenished. Active ingredients are stinging nettle, green clay and pine charcoal. I love how organic and natural this skincare brand is – definitely one to check out!
I wanted to mention a pair of trainers I was kindly gifted by Gabor – these are their Wilma design and they are so versatile. In one of my recent blogs about dresses and sneakers, I talked about how I always struggled with what to wear on my feet in the spring months. Now, I always turn to a gorgeous pair of trainers. Check out that blog post here.
Finally, these gorgeous blue striped cushions from Lavendar Coast Interiors had to be featured in my monthly favourites blog. Click here for their Instagram. I was extremely lucky to work with this beautiful interiors company recently over on my Instagram page. I ran a giveaway where someone could win their own Portscatho and Portloe cushions. Unfortunately, these are both sold out now but keep an eye on what is next to come from this amazing country and coastal interiors brand.
I hope you all have a great weekend and sending lots of love.
