June Favourites

Another month has passed, which means that another favourites post is to be written. Here is a little round up of things that I have been loving throughout June.

Denim Overall Dress - The background for my first photo is a dress that I have been loving this month. It is from Forever 21, which you can visit on their website here. It is a denim dress, designed to be worn with a t-shirt underneath. I have been loving it as it such a versatile piece of clothing - it can be worn without tights and a vest top for a warmer day, or paired with tights and a long sleeved top for colder days. It can be dressed up with heels, or can be worn more casual with converse. I love it, and think everyone should own a dress like it!

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Mattifying Toner - This month I have really stripped back my skin care routine and reviewed what I'm using. As I am currently going through chemotherapy, there are all sorts of drugs and things going through my body, so I am being extremely conscious of what I use. When my skin was going through a break out, I cleansed my face as normal to remove makeup and dirt, and then I just used this product twice a day (morning and evening) quite generously on a cotton pad over my face, and it cleared. I have actually used this whole bottle up now, and I will definitely be repurchasing it for the third time.

Urban Decay All Nighter Waterproof Long-Wear Liquid Foundation - This foundation has been my go-to for the past two months. Recently I have been loving applying it using a beauty sponge, which gives the foundation a more natural look and really allows it to set into the skin, so you can truly feel the long-lasting benefits. I mentioned this foundation in my recent 'Sweat-Proof Makeup Look' post, as I even wore it during the recent heatwaves we've been having in the UK, and it literally didn't budge all day. I would say it is a nice medium coverage when applied with a sponge, but alternatively it can be really built up to a full coverage if applied with a brush, which I do for nights out and thoroughly recommend.

The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter - I have reverted back to my old faithful highlighter. This beautiful highlighter gives a blinding amount of light golden shine, which I love during summer to reflect the sun. This is not a highlighter for the faint hearted, once applied, you will glow.

Ted Baker and Essie 'A Cut Above' - I have been loving rose gold anything at the moment, especially on my nails. For a quick and easy manicure at home, I put a Ted Baker pale pink shade (name unknown as it came in a Christmas set) all over my nails, and then this gorgeous chunky pink glitter shade from Essie over the top. 

As you can see, I have also been loving Ferrero Rocher's and hot chocolate. My mum recently bought a Tassimo machine, and I have become quite the hot chocolate connoisseur. I love hot chocolate, especially with the added toppings of marshmallows and whipped cream so I don't do them everyday, just every now and again as a little treat. 

What have you been loving recently?
