I’m really proud of how I composed myself for these exams, and I’m feeling much more confident for my exams next year!

– AN ABUNDANCE OF KATHERINES BY JOHN GREEN

katherines

I’ve had this book sitting on my shelf for at least a year, but I’d never had a chance to read it. So I started reading it this month, and I’m quite enjoying it so far!

4. What movies did you watch?

– THE FAULT IN OUR STARS

1-29-Official-“The-Fault-in-Our-Stars”-Movie-Trailer

I loved the book, so it was obvious that I was going to love the film. I welled up, many times.

5. What tv shows did you watch?

– STORAGE HUNTERS

storage.hunters

I’ve always loved this show, but I’ve just become obsessed with it this month!

6. What games did you play?

I’m aware that I’m very late to the party, but I’ve become so obsessed with this game! I love everything about it!

7. What food did you try and love?

– ONION BAGELS

I’d had onion bagels before, but this month I discovered a new found love for them!

8. What were your favourite fashion/beauty items?

– AUSSIE THREE MINUTE MIRACLE FOR DAMAGED HAIR, REVLON LIPSTICK IN BLACK CHERRY AND PROVOKE TOUCH OF SILVER SHAMPOO

june 2014 favourites

A large portion of my hair has been bleached, so I need to treat it quite regularly to avoid split ends. I’ve been using the Aussie Three Minute Miracle treatment as though it’s a conditioner, and it’s really improved the condition of my hair (plus it smells incredible!). I’ve been wanting to invest in a nice dark lipstick for a short while now, and I found this Revlon Lipstick in Black Cherry whilst looking for one online. Although the lasting power isn’t very good, the colour is beautiful, and I think that it really suits my skin tone. Because my hair is naturally dark brown, it turned a slightly brassy colour after I had it bleached. I’ve been using the Provoke Touch of Silver Shampoo for a few months now, and it’s really helped even out my hair colour.

9. What was your favourite song?

– DON’T BY ED SHEERAN

ed-sheeran-x

I fell in love with this song after hearing a snippet from it on an advert.

10. What did you buy/What were you given?

– ANIMAL CROSSING NINTENDO 3DS XL

Unfortunately, because I’ve been really busy this month, I haven’t had a chance to sit down and read anything.

8. What were your favourite fashion/beauty items?

– LUSH STRAWBERRY FEELS FOREVER MASSAGE BAR, THE BODY SHOP PASSION FRUIT SHOWER GEL AND LUSH PINK FUN

may favourite 2014

I’ve always loved Lush Massage Bars, so I decided to buy their new strawberries and cream scented bar! It smells absolutely divine and really helps my keratosis pilaris, but if you don’t like having to wait a while for the oil to sink into the skin, I would not recommend this product! I’m a huge fan of The Body Shop, and love the other products in their passion fruit range, so I decided to try this! It smells wonderful, and I really love it! I’ve always known about Fun from Lush, but have never tried it, so I decided to try it this month! I really like the smell, but I have to admit that it unfortunately does dry the skin out quite a lot.

9. What was your favourite song?

– ALL I WANT BY KODALINE

A006_C038_04281Q

I love Kodaline, so it was inevitable that I was going to love this song!

Lush sent me this wonderful little pot of cream for free with one of my orders earlier on in the month, and I really love it!
