May Favourites

Hello my beautiful readers! If you follow me on Facebook you will be aware that I was off on my holiday last week which is why there was a distinct lack of posts! 
I am now back in the UK and ready to get back to business. Next week we will return to #findthehappy but this week I am hoping to get up a post about my holiday so watch out for that. 
 
In the meantime…. here are some things that I loved last month…
 
 
 
The ingredient list probably reads like a horror to most, apple, beetroot, carrot, and ginger. I am a huge fan of the Cawston Press Apple and Beetroot juice but I can never find it anywhere. The innocent juice is so good. Sweet yet earthy, and I can kid myself that I am being super healthy. 
 
 
I am quickly becoming a huge fan of Korres products. I have had lots of samples though Birchbox and the latest in last months box was this Korres Burgamot Pear Body Milk. It is so nice. I am a bit addicted to the citrus body milk they do and have just cracked open my third tube (this is unheard of!) but this one is also delicious. I am definitely going to be purchasing the full size version once this has run out. It just smells so juicy and yummy and makes your skin feel lush.
 
 
Primers seem to be a thing now, back in my early days of make up I am pretty sure they were not a thing! It makes sense, and after trying this one from Laura Mercier I get it. My make up lasts so much longer when I have used this! It is a really nice light formula that you put on your face as you would a moisturiser (just less rubbing I guess!) and then apply your make-up as usual. This one isn’t cheap at £29 but I think the full size one would last ages, I am still using my very generous sample. You only need a small amount so I think it is definitely worth it!
 
 
I have had horribly cracked, dry and sore lips since winter. I do suffer with them usually but this winter they just wouldn’t go away. I have tried many different lip balms, and creams and lotion and potions but finally decided that I might need to spend a little more. So I bought this at the not so little price of £9.50. The reviews were great and with a name like “First Aid Beauty” I thought I might be onto a winner and I was. Its great. It feels gloriously luxurious on you lips and has a very slight menthol tingle which is nice, but most importantly it has worked. No more cracked lips. HURRAH!
Strawberry Oatmeal
 
 
Currently favourite breakfast! I soak my oatmeal the night before with a tea spoon of coconut oil, then in the morning add chopped strawberries and a good glug of honey, cook and tuh dah! I do mine in the microwave at work in this rather marvellous porridge pot from Lakeland. The porridge smells so good and all the girls at work have commented on the yummy breakfast aromas coming from my desk. Another tip – you only need 4/5 strawberries for this so freeze the rest. Once they have defrosted they go super soft and gloopy, but are perfect to mash up and wack in your porridge. Nom.
 
My favourite perfume is somewhat expensive so I do not like to use it every day. I picked up this one on a whim from Fragrance Direct for £10. It is lovely. It has a really fresh slightly floral scent and I love it. As it is so cheap I am happy to spray it all over myself, every day and smell delicious. That way I can save my expensive perfume for special occasions.
Ciate Fast Dry Top Coat
 
 
I love to paint my nails, however I am rubbish at sitting still long enough for them to set properly. This caught my eye with its “super quick-dry finish” claims, backed up by the rave reviews it had so I thought I would give it a go. It isn’t that cheap at £12 however it is will worth the money. Paint your nails as usual, and then use this as a top coat and it is touch dry in a matter of minutes. It sets quicker so no more smudgy nails! Hurrah!
