May Favourites | EG

After posting my June wish list last week, I realised that I hadn’t done my May favourites! I know, I’m an awful blogger. This week I’ve decided to share my favourite this month, including clothes, makeup and and other random bits! I’ve started to figure out the kind of look I would like my blog to have, as I have moved away from the more girly, sticker obsessed blogger I once was. I hope you all still enjoy reading my posts, and I would always appreciate recommendations of what you would like to see!

Makeup

Recently I’ve become a bit makeup obsessed. I never use to wear makeup until around Christmas, and then suddenly the majority of my wages have been blown on the newest primer!

These are my favourite pieces from this month that I’ve really enjoyed using.

Face

This past month I’ve loved having a bit of tan for once! I burn almost instantly so fake tan has been a good friend of mine this month. Don’t worry though, I haven’t gone full out orange, just a subtle bronze. The Benefit Hoola Bronzer has been my absolute favourite to bronze up my face with and contour a little. It looks so pretty and is very matte, so it looks really nice with a highlighter.

Another thing that I’ve really enjoyed using is the Freedom Pro Studio Fixing Spray. I couldn’t find the matte one, which is the one I would’ve rather had, yet for £5 I wasn’t going to leave this behind. It is really good actually. It has kind of a nutty smell to it? Maybe that is just me. I honestly think that my makeup stays on so much better, especially since I prefer wearing lighter coverage on my face. I would definately recommend it.

Eyes

I adore the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara, as do countless youtubers and bloggers. It is honestly amazing! I was not one for plastic brushes as I preferred proper bristles, yet after using this I am converted! I got the waterproof one as it holds the curl in your lashes a lot better, however I think I would like to purchase the one with argan oil in as that sounds really good too!

Lips

Recently I have really got into lip products. I was able to pick up this revolution lipstick in ‘looking ahead’ from Superdrug and it is the prettiest pink brown colour. If you read my blog a lot, you’ll know I am a lover of these kinds of colours.

I’m sure everyone knows that nyx is now coming to boots! I squealed when I saw it in my local store. Recently I went back and picked up a Butter Gloss in Praline. It is a lovely light brown colour and feels like velvet on the lips. The colour looks so lovely over the revolution lipstick too!

Clothes



My two favourite clothing items have been my topshop mom jeans and my adidas superstars. Paired together the look so laid back, yet stylish. The trainers are the comfiest shoes I’ve honestly ever owned! Since I’m a 6 I can get the children’s ones, and when you sign up you get 15% off, so these shoes cost just £37.95 with postage! White is great for summer and hopefully they stay this white.

Other favourites

My favourite youtuber this month has been McKenna Kalein. Her channel, Simply_kenna is so full of positivity. Her fashion is lovely and she does such good makeup tutorials. McKenna is a Buddhist, and she teaches about some of her beliefs as well. I really think you guys should check her channel out, but you might become addicted!

Another youtuber that I’ve really enjoyed watching is Gabriella Lindley. I love both of her channels but my favourite recently has been her blogs on Planet Gabb. She hasn’t updated one in a few days and I’m on the edge of my seat waiting for it!

My favourite albums this month have been Dangerous Woman by Ariana Grande, and Wiped Out by The Neighbourhood. You guys know I am the biggest Ariana grande fan, and when the album was released I fell in love! Right now I’m listening to Let Me Love You. My favourite are Leave Me Lonely and Knew Better/Forever Boy. On The Neighbourhoods new album my favourites are Daddy Issues and Baby Came Home 2/ Valetines. I definately recommend checking these albums out as they are so so good!

Christmas Wish List | EG

Christmas is only four days away!!! I’m a little bit excited if you can tell. I pre put together my Christmas wish list, even though I know I won’t be getting them as I’ve already got my present. These are a few things that I really like and think are really pretty.

                     
leaf print overlay dress- topshop

iPhone 6 silver – Apple

Adidas superstar metallic – asos

Fujifilm instax mini 8 film – Amazon

Parlour grey and silver midi watch – Olivia burton

Adidas essentials t shirt – urban outfitters

I think this dress is so gorgeous and would be really lovely with some skater shoes or boots and an oversized coat or a black denim jacket. It could be dressed up or down and I think that’s really nice.

Obviously a new phone is probably on everyone’s wishlist and with the release of the 6 and 6s Apple will obviously be getting a lot of orders. I like the iPhone 6 as its more budget friendly and being stuck on the iPhone 4s is not fun really.

These trainers were featured in my last yes please post. I just can’t get enough of them! I think they’re so pretty and add a subtle quirky touch to an outfit.

I have the pink fujifilm instax mini 8. I got it 2 years ago for Christmas but I haven’t had any film since last New Year’s Eve as I used it all and I haven’t got round to buying any,ore film so this is more of a need than a want.

This watch is so beautiful. I love grey and silver and the flowers on the face are so gorgeous. The midi dial is a nice size to because I have tiny wrists and a huge watch face would make them look even smaller!

Urban outfitters has the nicest clothes. If I always had money I would buy all of my clothes in there! This adidas top is really ladiback and neautral and would match with everything. 

What’s on your Christmas Wishlist?

Have a lovely day!

Yes Please | EG

It seems like I haven’t done a yes please post in what seems like forever. But today I have one for you and I absolutely love it! I saw these shoes ages ago and they’re so pretty. Since I wear a lot of grey, white and black these would match really well.

  
These are holographic superstars! A lot of people ( including my mum ) really don’t like them but I love them! I think they’re really quirky but still on trend. I love anything holographic and these are also really useful.

These could be paired with black jeans and a grey jumper or a white top and a chunky grey cardigan. As they’re trainers, these would be super comfy and easy to slip on when you go out!

What about you guys? Have you been wishing for anything?

Have a lovely day!
