June Beauty Favourites

                                      A month of lovely beauty favourites!

  1. MAC Cremesheen Glass in 'Boy Bait' - I've been loving a nude lip at the moment and this shade is perfect for it. A lovely formula as always from MAC too!
  2. Rimmel Sun Shimmer Instant Tan (Medium) - This is a product I've been using for a few years now. Not sure why I've never featured it before. I'm loving using it before nights out at the moment as I'm not one for using an over night or developing tan. This goes on so well and is incredibly easy to blend meaning I get no streaks. I love the colour and love that it's so easy to wash off once you're done with it! 
  3. GOSH Lipstick in '134 Darling' - Another product that I have used for years. I have been through about 5 of these! As I'm loving a nude lip at the moment I tend to pair this with the MAC lip glass and they go so well together!
  4. Nivea Soft Moisturising Cream - After discovering that my horrendous break outs were actually being caused by my Clinique moisturiser I decided to take it back to basics and try out Nivea (on my mum's recommendation). This cost me 99p and it has honestly saved my skin!
  5. Max Factor Nail Varnish in 'Diva Coral' - One of the most perfect summer nail shades in my opinion! An amazing formula which dries really quick too!
  6. Maybelline Mega Plush Volume Mascara - I've been loving this mascara for a while now. It gives really full looking and thick lashes which I love. Great for anyone who loves the look of false lashes without having to wear them!

A Fun Weekend!

This weekend my boyfriend and I headed to Morecambe (about 20 minutes away from us) and had a nosey around the Catch The Wind, Kite Festival. Morecambe is our nearest little seaside town!

It isn't my usual choice of activity for the weekend, but the sun was shining and quite honestly we didn't have much to do.

Long story short, we ended up having a great day. Morecambe was really busy but there was a nice atmosphere. There were loads of things to see (mainly kites), live music, deck chairs, cute little food and craft stalls and circus performances! 

We even found ourselves witnessing a sinking sand incident/rescue by the coastguard. Initially quite scary....turned humorous when we realised all the boy was worried about was the fact he had lost his trainers to the sands!

The weather was amazing. Much hotter than we had anticipated and dressed for and Joe ended up with sun burn. Not good! 

I'd really recommend everyone checking out some local events that are happening around your local towns for a bit of something different to do when you're stuck for ideas.

It worked out great for us this weekend and maybe it would for you too!

 Oooh sneaky photo of Joe!

I hope you've all really enjoyed your weekend as much as I have!
