June Favourites / I'm Back!
Hello Everyone! That's right I am back and do I ever have lots to tell you! I have a lot of new products and lots of clothing to show you. Not to mention all of the stories I have to share with you. Let's just say you will be hearing about everything! So you better subscribe to the blog and our youtube so that way you don't miss a thing!
Anyway, today I am going to be doing my June favourites! I have a lot of amazing products to share with you. A lot of them I won't go into too much detail because I would like to give them their own reviews so I will let you know if a review for the product is coming your way!
Let's get started!
Soap & Glory Glow Job (review to come) - I am in love with this product. I picked it up while in London, UK for £9 ($14 Canadian) at Boots. They were having a 3 for 2, and currently the promotion is still running, so I picked up lots of Soap and Glory products. I am a huge fan of this company, but it is way too marked up in Canada so I took advantage of the prices and stocked up. This lotion gives you the perfect glow, I am very pale and as I have said struggle with tanning products but this really just brightens my face and makes me look radiant.
Neon Nail Polish - I have hoped on to the neon trend and this little touch of colour allows you to do so as well without having to be too bold to wear a full piece of neon clothing. I am currently loving Joe Fresh's Neon Pink ($4) and Models Own Beach Party (£5 or $8 Canadian). I will be reviewing the Models Own Nail Polish shortly, so stay tuned for that.
No7 Nourishing Lip Shine (review to come) - I am not a huge fan of lip glosses, I often find them sticky and unpleasant to wear. This is the complete opposite. I love the slight colour it gives and it feels like my lips are moist rather than sticky. This Lip gloss runs normally for £10.50 but because I had a No7 voucher for Boots which gives you £5 off I only paid £5.50 ($9 Canadian).
Soap & Glory Arch De Triumph (review to come) - I am lucky enough to have darker eyebrows, my hair and my eyebrows have never matched believe it or not. So this shade matched me perfectly. Sadly the pencil only comes in Taupe so if you have more blonde, black or red eyebrows this won't work for you. I find that this pencil gives me that little extra definition without being like "HOLY EYEBROWS" and the highlight is that perfect touch to make them look stunning. I picked this up for £8 ($13 Canadian).
Soap & Glory Marvelips (review to come) - It promised me plumper lips, not sure if it delivered that but the colour is perfect for a nude pencil for me. My search for a pencil has finally been successful! I struggled finding a good nude because my lips are slightly more red than a lot of people's naturally. My grandma used to think my parents put lipstick on me HAHA. I picked up this beauty for £8 ($13 Canadian).
EOS lip balm (review to come) - I am in love with these. Not only is the packaging super cute they nourish like nothing else. And they smell AMAZING. I have Sweet Mint and Summer Fruit, at first they were hard to find but I picked up one from Walmart and one from Shoppers Drugmart each for about $4. If you haven't tried these you have to!
Soap & Glory Flake Away (review to come) - I seem to have gone on a Soap & Glory love fest! I picked this up as part of my 3 for 2 and figured I'd give it a go to get rid of those nasty bumps I have on my arms. Lets just say so far so good! I still have mild discolouration but the bumps are going away and look a lot smaller. I have been searching for a product that would make these disappear and I think I found my little miracle. I picked this up for £7 ($11 Canadian)
So I may have gone on a little bit of a Soap & Glory splurge since there is still another product that I have that I am going to review but like I said... I love the company and I think there stuff works. Plus there cheeky packaging and names make me laugh.
I will do a quick random favourites, including books/movies and bloggers.
Books: I am currently loving The White Queen and The Red Queen by Philippa Gregory. They are stories that take place in the early reign of the British Monarchy and have a nice mix of historic facts and simple entertainment. A nice read for anyone.
Movies: The artist came out on video this month, and this happens to be my favourite movie. So if you haven't seen it and fancy the 1920/1930's era give it a go, you'll fall in love.
Bloggers: I will list a few and state why they are my favourite. I have a few more well known bloggers and a few people that are just starting out that I really enjoy.
Fashionrocksmysocks - If you love fashion and beauty you will love her. Her fun personality comes out in all her videos and blogs and she is very knowledgable. I have been watching her for a while now and she still remains one of my favourites. www.fashionrocksmysocks.com
Essiebutton - I love her, I think she is hilarious and easily relatable. Estée is a Canadian living in the UK and always has amazing product reviews. I always turn to her blog before buying a product because I truly trust her opinion. www.essiebutton.com
Zoella - I have been watching Zoe for a while and I love her videos and blog posts. She has amazing fashion sense and product reviews that I will frequently read. I am a huge believer in reading reviews before buying a product, especially if it's a little pricey. She is funny and a beautiful person. www.schoee.blogspot.ca
Facesbyjeanie - I love her make-up looks, I think they can go from being very dramatic to being very neutral and I always love checking out what she has done. www.facesbyjeanine.blogspot.ca
Bethmars1990 - Beth doesn't have a blog that I know of but she does have a youtube that I have been tuning in to. She is fairly new but she is amazingly sweet and dedicated. You know when you become a subscriber she appreciates you. I love her makeup looks and hauls. She is a strong and beautiful person. http://www.youtube.com/user/bethmars1990
Well those are my June favourites. I may have talked an awful lot, but I missed all of you. I hope you enjoyed this little post and I look forward to hearing from all of you!
