I can’t believe it’s July already, I came home for summer at the beginning of May and it feels like five minutes ago, as if it’s been 2 months! I try and do a monthly favourites at the beginning of every month and sometimes it’s pretty difficult if I’ve been using the same stuff as the month before, but since June was my birthday month, I have a few bits that I’ve been loving that I got given as gifts and a couple that I bought with birthday money. I also included this jewellery stand as a prop because I got it really recently and I think it’s so adorable, so it’s kinda a monthly favourite too!
Iconemesis got in touch with me and wanted me to review one of their phone cases, so I picked out this really cute coffee illustrated one. I love the way it looks hand painted and if you’re a coffee lover like me then it’s perfect! I’ve had this case on ever since it arrived, it clips on super easily and it feels so smooth which I love, most cases I buy are quite hard and rough and don’t feel nice when they’re being held, but this one is the complete opposite. I can see this staying on my phone for a long time to come!
Barry M Nail Polish in Coconut // £3.99
The nail polish I’ve been loving lately has been from Barry M’s Gelly range in the shade Coconut. It’s like an off white shade that’s got a touch of cream to it. It just looks white but I prefer it because it’s not a real ‘in your face’ shade of white, it’s more of a natural one which I love. It looks so pretty with my silver jewellery and my dress code that includes mostly black. I’ve also been using this quick dry spray that one of my friends got me for my birthday and it’s amazing stuff, it dries my nails so fast!
My most worn eyeshadow has been Mac’s Copper pigment, I bought it in London and it’s so so pretty! You can find an eyeshadow tutorial where I’m wearing this here. I also finally caved and got myself the massively hyped over Velvet Teddy lipstick, I wasn’t sure whether it would suit me or not but I have to say, it’s quickly become my favourite everyday lip colour!
I’ve been after this foundation for ages since I read many reviews that it was a great foundation for oily skin. I’ve only worn it once and I’m not overly keen on the colouring, but it’s the lightest shade that’s closest to my skin tone, it’s just a tad too orange. Saying that, it’s got really good coverage and has held up pretty well on my oily skin! I mostly added this in my favourites post due to the gorgeous packaging, but it is actually now my favourite foundation, after Nars Sheer Glow of course 😉
Silver Star Dust Ring // £6.50
I recently bought this gorgeous star dust ring from a gorgeous little shop on Etsy. I am currently going through an obsession with rings (as you can tell from the picture above) and when I saw this, I had to have it. I’m not a gold jewellery kinda gal so my ring collection is strictly silver, but I adore wearing them all together, they look so pretty!
And those are all of my favourites from June, no idea what I’ll be loving next month as I need to seriously cut down on my spending habits so I don’t go back to uni in September with no money! What were you loving last month?
