May Favourites

It’s favourite time and with May being the month of my birthday, there were so many things that I could have put into this post but I’ve tried to narrow it down a little! The weather in May has been a bit up and down, so I haven’t quite transitioned into a summer wardrobe yet (I’m actually back in my boots and black jeans as I write this) but I am featuring some more summery pieces in this post.


So first up is beauty and I’ve picked up some great bits this past month! If you’ve seen me raving about this on social media or in my recent blog post here, then you’ll know I’m talking about the Sunday Riley Luna Night Oil! This product has transformed my evening routine and it just makes my skin feel incredible! I’m thinking about doing a morning/evening skincare routine post if that’s something you guys would like to read? 

Next is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit which Robbie very kindly got for my birthday (major boyfriend points this year!) I know this isn’t a new launch, and I’ve been wanting to try it for so long and I’m so glad I’ve got it! It’s such a great palette for creating that contoured look but in a more subtle way. I’m not a huge fan of extreme contouring as I feel a bit ‘drag queen’ but I do like to create definition in my beauty look. This palette includes you powder, contour and highlight all in one place so it’s great for travelling too! 

Last for beauty is the Topshop Glow Pot, if you watch any of Sarah Ashcrofts YouTube videos then you will have seen that this has been featured A LOT and now I know why! I have pretty much used this everyday since I got it and I just love the look it gives, for only £9 you can’t really go wrong! I’ve got a post coming next week on highlighters – cream vs powders and the products I am loving so make sure you check back for that next week.

Now onto fashion! I have invested in a few designer pieces so far this year and this Gucci Wallet/Cross Body is next for my handbag collection! I have been lusting after this kind of bag for a while now, with Victoria from InTheFrow and Claire from IAmChouquette sporting the Chanel versions but I knew that was totally out of my price range! These bags are the perfect size for taking out and about when you only need your phone, cards and a lipstick which is why I didn’t really take this off the whole time in Rome! I managed to grab this Gucci bag on eBay for less than half the RRP which I was over the moon about! If you’ve never snapped up a designer bargain on eBay before then what are you playing it?! 

Next are my new favourite trainers, the Nike Juvenates in white! I had been after a new pair of trainers for a while and if you follow me on snap chat then you will have seen how many pairs I have ordered over the past few months only to send them back a few days later. As soon as I tried these on, I knew they were exactly what I wanted, they’re are sooo comfortable and I can wear this style in the gym or with a casual outfit at the weekend. 

Lastly is this Topshop Striped Cami which my sister got me for my birthday, this is the new Cami style from Topshop for this year and I love how they always add a new little twist each summer for this style. This year they have added a double strap detail to the back which I think will look lovely with a tan and I love the different directions of stripe on this version, I can’t wait to order more colours. You can see how I styled this in my recent fashion blogpost from Rome here. 


!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = ‘//’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

Last for this favourites post is homeware and this time it’s this amazing candle that my friend got me for my birthday. This is the ‘Prosecco Made Me Do It’ scent from Candelle & Co, I hadn’t heard of this brand before but the smell is just incredible!! I literally can’t bring myself to light it as it’s just too good, I can even smell it just walking past it on the side in my living room…pink prosecco, the perfect scent for summer!

    Can I just say that I have been lusting after those Gucci Wallets although I didn't know they did a mini bag version too, whhhhat, they're so timeless! Also, I don't need another highlighter but you've sold the topshop one to me, going to have to go buy one.

    lots of love, Jane

      I absolutely love the Gucci, its has all the wallet compartments inside and you can detach the strap so can be worn as a clutch too! You HAVE to get the Topshop glowpot 🙂

    Every single item is on point! I love the Gucci bag and the candle in particular. I haven't done a favourites post for months – you've inspired me to get back at it!
