I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I wrote a Beauty and Lifestyle Favourites post. I’ve mainly been sharing beauty products on my instagram so thought today would be an ideal opportunity to round up everything I’ve enjoyed using over the past month.
So let’s get started.
An audio book I’ve loved listening to this month is Becoming by Michelle Obama. I’d been looking forward to reading this ever since it became available to pre-order and found it to be a beautiful, moving story. The first section of the book covers Michelle’s modest childhood, the challenges she faced by her dad’s MS diagnosis and her educational aspirations to pursing a law career during which she met her future husband. The second part of the book focuses on their relationship and his political career, which was not easy for Michelle to deal with. She talks about their couples counselling and several personal battles Michelle faced during this time. The final section of the book details Michelle’s vision for America and optimism for the future.
18 months ago I was lucky enough to be sent a bottle of Beauty Sleep Elixir to review and I’ve loved it ever since. I’m now on my fourth bottle and my skin always looks glowing. I’m so happy I’ve continued using Beuti Skincare Beauty Sleep Elixir as part of my night time skincare routine. A few drops of this gives my skin a super boost of vitamins and minerals, the following morning it looks amazing. I’ve received many complements on how luminous my complexion looks. You can also use a drop in the morning and it makes the perfect base to apply makeup.
Head over to my original review if you’d like to find out more.
If there’s one nail colour that shouts Spring is on it’s way it’s this gorgeous one from Leighton Denny Nails. The shade Clutch Bag* is a beautiful rose gold and is one from their new season collection. It applies really well and lasts for ages. I absolutely adore this brand and will be checking out the other shades to go with my Spring Summer wardrobe.
How gorgeous is this eyeshadow palette from Makeup Revolution? There are so many stunning shades, from mattes to shimmers and they blend in beautifully. Each colour is highly pigmented, there’s no fall out and it lasts all day. This will keep me amused for hours by experimenting with different looks.
I’ve been loving banana and peanut butter on toast for lunch, it’s absolutely delicious. Some people don’t like the taste of salty and sweet together but it’s one of my all time favourites. Give it a try, let me know what your favourite lunch is.
Viktor Rolf Flowerbomb has to be my most worn fragrance of 2018 let alone February. Adrian bought me another bottle for Valentine’s Day this year as I was getting very low. It’s a rich bodied perfume with the most amazing smell of a floral bouquet. There are hints of mandarin and orange, Sambac jasmine, Catleya orchid, freesia, Centifolia rose and a woody base note of Patchouli. What’s your most worn fragrance?
I’ve totally fallen back in love with Erborian Pink Perfect Cream. It’s a 4 in 1 product which gives my skin a wonderful healthy glow, minimizes the appearance of pores, blurs out any imperfections and primes my skin ready to apply makeup.
With my sleep patterned all over the place right now, this cream makes my complexion look as if I’ve had a full 8 hours.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed wearing Charlotte Tilbury’s Hot Lips 2 in the shade Glowing Jen, a beautiful tawny rose which is a little darker than my usual nude. It has a gorgeous creamy texture and glides on beautifully, as well as hydrateing and conditioning your lips. There are 5 collectible, refillable and interchangeable designs inspired by Fashion, Hollywood and Rock ‘n’ Roll.
What have you enjoyed doing over the past month? Have you tried any of these products?
