May 2011 Favourites

I cannot believe it's the end of May today. It will be Christmas again before we know it!
Well as with the end of each month comes the monthly favourites for most of the blogging/YouTube community, so here are mine for the month of May...

My Kindle! I am quite obsessed.
I always thought i'd be a total "bookie" (not in the betting sense, but rather someone who prefers to hold an actual book than an electronic one!), but I love this. its so portable and practical, and I love than I can download books whenever and whereever I want.
Priced at £111 or £150 with 3G from Amazon

Another favourite relating to my Kindle is the book i've just recently finished:
A Game of Thrones by G. R. R. Martin.
Despite being 900-odd pages long it is an entralling and interesting read, and has been made into a fabulous tv series (starring Sean Bean, amongst other familiar faces) on Sky Atlantic.

Mineral Glow Powder by K Co Uk Make-up. You can read why I love it here

Sleek Pout Polish in shade 946 Electric Peach.
This has featured on my favourites before and it's something i've just "rediscovered" in my make-up bag.
It's a really pretty sheer peachy-red which is very buildable, and doesn't dry out your lips. Whilst the shine might fade the colour acts as a sort of stain which stays put for some time. It also contains SPF 15 as an added bonus.
Available for approx. £3.99 from Superdrug

Boots Essentials Curl Creme
I had first heard about this on one of the MoneySavingExpert forums, and decided that at only £1.32 for a big 250ml tub it was worth trying.
It has really helped tame my curly hair: recently i've simply washed my hair, applied this then let my hair dry naturally. It helps reduce frizz and gives more of a definition to my curls

Superdrug MUA (Make Up Academy) eyeshadows in 19 Matt and 14 Pearl
I have to say i'm very impressed with the quality of these eyeshadows from Superdrug's own brand of make-up. They are very velvety, intense, true colours which last all day without fade (I have been using them over the top of my UDPP). At £1.00 per item across the whole make-up range you can't really go wrong, and i'm really eager to try more of the products on offer.

What have you been loving this month?

  1. I've been loving Essi nail polish and the new range by Lily Allan's Lucy in Disguise brand - the sailor playsuit is lovely!

  2. I'd love to try mote Essie polishes - i've got a couple of pastel toned ones so far x x x
