June Favourites 2015

Another month has been and gone and we are now officially half way through 2015, eek! In June I found lots of lovely new products as well as some old faithfuls. Here are the beauty products which I loved and reached for the most....

Philosophy Living Grace Firming Body Emulsion

You also know I'm a huge Philosophy fan so it's no surprise that I loved their Living Grace body lotion. This has a soap and water scent which is so nice to apply after a bath or shower and it leaves my skin feeling lovely and nourished without feeling thick and sticky.

GOSH Bronzing Powder in 02 Natural Glow

I'm forever searching for the perfect bronzer and this one from GOSH is very nice. It has an olive undertone so won't leave you tangoed. I have been loving a light dusting of this all over the face for a healthy bronzed glow.

MAC All That Glitters Eyeshadow

As you can tell from the photo, All That Glitters is well loved. This is my all time favourite MAC eyeshadow as it is so easy to wear. It is a beige with a golden pearl finish and is so pretty swept over the lid and finished with lots of mascara.

Bondi Sands Dark Self Tanning Foam

I am OBSESSED with this fake tan! It smells like a holiday in a bottle for starters! It's tropical coconut scent smells so good you would think you really had been tanning on an exotic beach somewhere. The mousse is so easy to apply and the colour is beautiful and natural looking. It has green undertones to stop it looking orange which I love. I have just ordered the everyday gradual tanner from Bondi Sands to see if I love it just as much.

Clinique Cheek Pop in Heather Pop

I showed these new Cheek Pop colours in my recent haul but Heather Pop has been my absolute fave. It looks pretty boring in the packaging but on the cheeks it gives a gorgeous flush and a very subtle glow. This has been my go-to blush for the month of June.

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder in Fair

This powder is seriously good. I adore Charlotte Tilbury products and this powder is one of my favourites. It gives a velvety airbrushed finish to the skin and somehow manages to hide imperfections, giving the prettiest soft focus look to the skin #nofilterneed. Definitely worth the price tag!

Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in Beige Trench

This lipstick gives the perfect 90's lip. It's mauve colour is on point and the formula is so creamy and moisturising. When paired with my last favourite, they are a match made in heaven.

Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Pillowtalk

My ultimate lip liner- Pillowtalk is just so versatile. It is just the right pink/neautral shade that it can be worn with so many lipstick colours, or, worn on it's own. This lip liner is super long lasting and literally won't budge for hours and hours which is always a good thing in my book!

For my non-beauty favourites this month I have been loving watching Season 3 of Orange Is The New Black and as well as the new season of Suits. Also on my June faves list were white skinny jeans, bright flowers and sunglasses (I think I have a new obsession....oh no!).

I would love to know what products you reached for most in June! Oh and happy July!

Weekend Casual

The weekends definitely go by way too quickly. I can't believe it's Monday again tomorrow, wahhh!
I thought I would share a casual weekend outfit with you. I have been loving khaki with white; the combo just seems to work well and it's perfect for the Scottish summer time when we get sunshine and pouring rain all in the space of an hour.

The above outfit is as follows-

Jacket- ASOS
Jeans- Oasis
Bracelets- Mango
Sunglasses- River Island
Wedges- Topshop (I got these years ago, so not link. Sorry!)

I love the 'Going Cray In LA' top as it is so comfortable and easy to throw on, as well as being inexpensive. I wore this outfit on Saturday, however I switched the wedges out for my Converse as I was going to be walking around a bit. 

Make up wise I kept it simple, no liner just tonnes of mascara and just wore Charlotte Tilbury's Lip Cheat Pencil in Pillow Talk on my lips.

On Sunday I was a bit more glam for a Baby Shower that I had so post about that outfit soon as well. 

Let me know what you weekend style is like!

Huge Beauty Haul

Yes, another beauty haul and this time it's a big one! I have purchased lots of lovely things over the past month much to my bank accounts dismay. Since there are a lots of new products I thought I would just give you a quick overview of what I have bought...

I have wanted this for the longest time and I'm definitely not disappointed by it. As the name suggests it really does give an airbrushed flawless finish. This has to be the best powder I have tried!

After watching Charlotte's Amal Clooney make up tutorial, I just had to have these. Charlotte Tilbury's newest cream eyeshadow are nothing short of extraordinary. The have a creamy mousse texture, giving the most beautiful metallic sheen to the eyes that lasts all day.

This neutral lipstick is really nice and gives that Kylie Jenner/90's lip with just the right about of sheen to make your lips look soft and plump. L'Oreal Colour Riche lipsticks are some of my faves!

This lip liner is the perfect match for the lipstick and very long lasting.

I have tonnes of ultra glam, dramatic lashes so I wanted to get something a bit more natural for nights (or days) when I just want a little helping hand in the lash department. I thought the No 020's looked really pretty.

I'm quite fussy when it comes to perfumes and usually stick to my usual sweet scents which I have been repurchasing for years. However when I smelled this Gucci Flora perfume I was intrigued. It's light and floral, yet sweet scent also has a creamy warm hint to it. A unique, light and pretty fragrance that I have been loving.

One sixth of Essie's Summer 2015 collection, Private Weekend is described as a sparkling crisp white. Nothing says summer like white nails and an amazing tan! I love the whole summer collection and want every colour, help!

Nail polish remover pots have changed my life! I have tried out a few different ones and thought I would give this cute pink Models Own one a go.

I am a big fan of the Clinque Cheek Pops, so when they released new colours I was on it. Heather Pop, although not much in the pan, is stunning on the cheeks.

I think I'm on to my fourth tube of this. I love it! I think it might be my all time favourite foundation now. Matte velvet skin, medium coverage and lasts all day....hell to the yeah!

Again another one I have repurchased time and time again. Just a really nice concealer!

Eyeliner pens are my jam but this one, well, it just isn't anything to right home about. I feel this could be a lot more pigmented and have a smaller tip.

This on the other hand is definitely worth a purchase. This a perfect dupe for the Anastasia Brow Whiz or the Stila Brow Pencil and does every bit as good a job. I will definitely be saving my money and repurchasing this pencil when I run out.

What beauty products have you been buying recently?

Summertime Boho Outfit

The sun has been out here in Scotland for the past week and it has definitely inspired me style wise. There is something about the sunshine and warm weather that makes me want to get rid of every single item in my wardrobe and buy lots of new gorgeous summery clothes. 

On Friday I was going for out for dinner and drinks with a friend and decided to go with a boho 70's vibe. I recently purchased a gorgeous embellished smock dress from Mango. I adore it! It is lightweight, so is perfect for summer, but can be glammed up with heels or worn casually with cute flat sandals.

As we were going out for cocktails after dinner I paired the dress with some heels. These black strappy Zara heels go well with the dress and add an injection of glamour to the outfit.

I found an embellished clutch bag from ASOS which tied in perfectly with with the pewter beading on my dress (match made in heaven, I love when this happens!). The clutch is a great size, big enough to fit all my essentials but still small enough as to not be a burden. 

Accessory wise, I wore a bunch of beaded bracelets that had a bohemian beach feel. I love these types of bracelets; I found mine in Accessorize as well as the earrings that I wore, which had the same vibe.

I loved the outfit which felt glam but still relaxed at the same time, which is definitely how I want to feel when I go out.

There are so many pretty boho smock dresses out right now which I am head over heels with, so I think I will be buying a few more to wear during summer. 

I would love to know what items you have been loving as summer approaches.
