May Favourites

Brace yourselves for a long one girls!!

There are a few products I've been LOVING this month!

Elie Saab perfume.
The top note opens on a sun-kissed, radiant orange blossom, as an ode to light.
The middle note develops into a jasmine absolute, a legendary flower in perfumery, imparting voluptuousness and elegance to the fragrance. It combines with a pure, modern patchouli heart.
The base note unfolds into a cedar woody accord adding character and a lingering trail, while the honey rose envelops the composition in a beautifully addictive note..
I have never smelt anything like this perfume before and I just can't get enough of it!

Body care products I have been enjoying this month are;
Exfoliating gloves - I use these in the shower and they are perfect for scrubbing away at any dead skin.
St Moriz Fake Tan - This month I tried fake tan for the first time and I think I'm hooked! and at £2.49 a pop it's not an addiction that will break the bank. 
Bliss Body Butter Vanilla & Bergamot - I received a sample sized bottle of this body butter in a glossybox and when I saw a set containing the body butter, body buff and shower gel in a charity shop for £5 I snapped it up straight away!
Bliss Body Buff Vanilla & Bergamot - this is such a great gentle exfoliator. And it smells amazing x

Bliss Body Butter - has such a gorgeous texture.

Oilatum Natural Repair Face Cream. As I child I always used oilatum products as I suffered with eczema and when I saw this in boots I didn't think twice about giving it a try. It has been great for my dry sensitive skin and I use it everyday! 

This month I've been really keen on hair care and love these products.
Lush - Hair doctor, such a great hair mask!
John Frieda Frizz Ease Thermal Protect serum (read about this product here)
Pure Coconut Leave In Conditioner - this is a new addition to my hair care routine and I can see the improvement since using this after every wash.

And finally - My favourite make up of may.
Bare Minerals Original Foundation - I picked this up recently in a set from Debenhams. I use the shade Fairly light and love how it feels on my skin. It is not at all heavy and is great for these summer days.
Natural Collection Cream Blusher Rosy Pink - this is a great shade for summer skin! Its a slightly peachy toned blusher, and I love cream blusher in the summer as a multi purpose product.
Bourjois Bronzing powder - I use this bronzer everyday to contour. In summer bronzer is a must have for me! This works great and smells amazing. I have shade 51 and it works so well on light skin tones,
Mac 'Watch Me Simmer' - I can not get enough of this lipstick. If I had to pick one product out of all of my favourites which I like best, it's this one. The colour is just so summer appropriate! I've been wearing it so often this month!
Topshop Blusher 'Prime Time' - another cream blush I'm loving is this one by Topshop. It's the first piece of Topshop make up I have bought and I am so pleased with it. I love bright pink blush and this one doesn;t dissapoint.

Top: Mac Watch me Simmer
Middle: Topshop Prime Time
Bottom: Natural Collection Rosy Pink

My music favorite for may is John Mayer's new album 'Born and Raised'

It's only been released for a week but it has been on repeat in my car (and my boyfriend's) ever since I got my hands on it! It's such easy listening and I strongly recommend it!
