June Favourites

1. MAC Duchess Palette
I've really been enjoying using this palette this past month. I love all the warm, natural tones in it, and rhymes really seem to suit my eye colour and skin tone. Unfortunately, this was part of a limited edition collection and is now unavailable. I've been loving the gold tones eyeshadow as an all-over lid colour.

2. Beauty Blender
This came in my June Birchbox, and since I've had it, I've really been enjoying using it to apply my foundation with. I've noticed however, that it works a lot better when it's clean. When it's dirty, it doesn't leave as such a nice finish to the skin

3. Soap and Glory Kick Ass Concealer
Ok, so it's not actually the concealer that I like about this product, it's the powder that comes with it. I'm really not a fan of the concealer (no coverage and clings to every dry bit!), but I have really been liking  it to set my under eye concealer with. It's a light, transparent powder, which is perfect for the under eye area, and concealer in general.

4. Maleficent
Sleeping Beauty is my all time favourite Disney film, so as soon as I heard about this new take on the classic, I knew it was one of them films I just couldn't say no to. And it definitely didn't disappoint. I loved it! It really made you question the original film, and made you sympathise with the enemy. I'm not a big fan of Angelina Jolie, but I think she did an incredible job!

5. Endless Love
This was a film I wanted to see at the cinema when I first saw it advertised, but somehow never ended up going. But it's recently been on SkyMovies, so when I saw it, I downloaded it. I really liked it! Ok, so it's your typical bad boy love story, (girl falls for bad boy, parents don't like him, boy leaves girl, girl and boy get back together) but sometimes you really can't beat these type of films!!

6. The Fault in Our Stars
I think this is probably going to be on everyone's favourites these next couple of months, but I'm jumping on the bandwagon! After reading the book earlier in the year, I've been really looking forward to the film coming out. And I think it really did the book justice, and portrayed it honestly. Even though it was a sad film, it really makes you question just what's important to you, and what's worth stressing out over. Shailene Woodley is my favourite actress, and I loved her portrayal of Hazel Grace in the film.

7. Gossip Girl
June was the month I got my Gossip girl back on! I loved it when it was first on the TV, and I love it even more now!! I'm currently on season 3, and love it getting in from work and watching an episode (or three) tucked up in bed. The only problem with falling back in love with this show, is it's really, really, really fuelling my need (nope, not want) to visit NYC!

8. Love by Jana Kramer
I think 2014 is going to be a good year music wise for me, as a lot of my favourite singers/bands are releasing new albums this year. And to start the countdown off, Jana Kramer (Alex Dupre from OTH) has released her new single off her second album called "Love". As soon as I heard it, I had it stuck in my head! It's such a gorgoues song, and the storyline is what I love the most. It's a really feel-good song for those who still dream and believe even if life has beaten them down. It's one of the few songs that if someone asked me what song best describes you/your view on life, I would immediately pick this song. I would highly recommend it when you're feeling uninspired and need a pick me up. 

What have been some if your favourites this past month?

P.S. Can you believe we're already half way through 2014?!
