I’m back again with yet another monthly favourites! I feel like June has been a long-ass month and I’ve got a lot of favourites to share so you might want to grab a cup of coffee and a snack for this one. I’ve split this post into categories so if you’re only here for the books you can skip straight to that, or if you’re not interested in the beauty you can miss that section. Whatever parts you read, I hope you enjoy!
First up on my favourites list are my mules. I know I mentioned these in my Five Favourite shoes post, but I couldn’t not mention them in my June Favourites because they’re just my favourite shoes right now. They’re so comfy and the heels are only about three inches so they’re great for wearing all day at work. I’m tempted to go back to Primark and buy all the other colours – for £10 you can’t say no.
Next up are my new River Island trousers. I’m so fussy when it comes to trousers. Skinny jeans are what I feel really comfortable in, so I’ve been looking for some thinner, floatier trousers for a few months but have only just found a pair that I like the look and fit of. These are still my favourite and most comfortable colour, black, but at the same time look summer-y enough.
I was recently sent some *shampoo and *hand cream from What’s in it for me. I really like the idea behind the company, as someone with sensitive skin and a sensitive scalp, it’s important to check through the ingredients of a product. What’s in it for me are really natural and display all their ingredients in large print across their packaging. On top of that, the actual products themselves are great and really affordable. I’m going to be posting a more detailed post later this week all about them and their products so keep an eye out if you’re interested.
I couldn’t not include my new favourite foundation from L’oreal. I raved on for ages on my Instagram story about how much I loved the L’oreal Infallible foundation. I won’t say too much because I’m going to be putting up a full post about it, but it’s 100% on my favourites for June.
I was also lucky enough to get sent some products from Anatomicals. Anatomicals sell some really unique products that work wonders. I was sent this *balm to use for headaches and some *under-eye gel. No matter how much sleep I get or what I eat I permanently have black bags – it’s probably more to do with how pale I am. The Anatomicals eye gel really works wonders and has brightened up my eyes so much. It’s become one of my favourite and post important parts of my morning and night routines and I’m not sure how I ever lived without it? Definitely check them out!
I’m not 100% sure whether you could include essential oils in beauty or not, but as I’m not sure what other category I’d put it under we’ll go with beauty. I was sent some *essential oils from Jaimin Essence last week in lavender and ylang ylang. I’m big on candles and love lighting lavender candles before I go to bed but am always nervous about accidentally falling asleep and leaving them lit. So these essential oils are a great alternative. They’re strong but not overpowering. They’ve been really helping me sleep and they’re also great for relaxing baths. I’d definitely recommend them if you’re a fellow stress-head, they work wonders!
I know I mentioned in my May favourites that I’d just started reading Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire and I was loving it. Since then, I’ve finished the book and read the other two books in the series and absolutely loved them. I finished the first book and read the other two all within a week – I was so hooked. I won’t say too much as I’d like to keep this spoiler-free, but if you’re around 18-23 and like a romance with a good mysterious back story, I’d say you’d probably really enjoy the series.
I’ve also absolutely loved reading Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson this month. I’ve been wanting to read her books for so long and wasn’t disappointed at all when I finally got round to it this month. I’ve got about twenty pages to go so can’t comment on the ending, but so far the book has been right up my street. If you’re a fan of John Green or Jnady Nelson, you’ll probably like Since You’ve Been Gone. It’s a really good and gripping read and I only wish I’d got round to reading it sooner!
Sorry for being a bit slow with the posts the past couple of weeks, I’ve had a few busy weekends and have been slacking off a bit. However, I’ve got lots of ideas and some exciting collaborations coming up, so keep an eye out! Thanks for reading and make sure you give my blog a follow or subscribe to be the first to see my posts!
