Monthly Favourites | May

It's already June, I'm not quite sure how the heck it's already June, but it is. *Holds back cursing because this is a PG rated blog*. ARGH!

In light of the situation, May was a really great month for me. I went to Tasmania, adopted a new dog, continued volunteering at the RSPCA, did a lot of babysitting, saw a lot of friends, celebrated my mother's birthday and much more. Good on you, May!

I hope you enjoy this month's favourites because it's a darn good one if I do say so myself.

1. Clinique 'Take the day off' Cleansing Balm 
This cleanser comes in one of my favourite colours; purple, doesn't break me out, takes off every ounce of my makeup in one go (although I always do a second cleanse anyway), is perfect for my sensitive skin as it doesn't cause any irritation or redness and makes my face unbelievably smooth. Totally in love and would highly recommend.

2. MAC Eyeliner in 'Teddy' 
This eyeliner is a godsend. It's brown/bronze with gorgeous golden speckles and is perfect for a messy, smudged out eyeliner look that defines your eyes but isn't as harsh or bold as black eyeliner.

3. Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade 
Want instagram perfect brows? Look no further. This stuff, when used in very small amounts, gives all the definition, volume and shape in a brow that you could ever want. Be careful not to overuse though, you don't want to look like a clown (unless of course, that's the look you're going for).

4. Soap&Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Extreme Lip Plumper XL in 'Clear' 
If you're into lipgloss that is guaranteed to make your lips tingle, a little more plumped and luscious looking, this is a great one to go for. If not, look elsewhere!

5. Vaseline Healthy Hand & Nail Hand Cream 
Typical Autumn/Winter weather has been causing my hands to shrivel up in a most unflattering way and this hand cream has provided me with all the moisture and nourishment that they need to become normal people hands again. It soaks straight into the skin, smells quite nice and doesn't have that heavy or greasy feeling that a lot of hand creams have (which I really hate).

6. App - 'allwomenstalk'
One of my best friends told me about this app and boy, am I thankful I decided to download it! It's a really fun app which provides you with all your procrastinating needs. Just kidding. But really. also has amazing advice on just about everything, such as self-love, fitness, recipes, boy advice and so forth.

7. Movie - Bridget Jones's Diary 
Another friend got me to watch this movie after she was horrified when I told her I hadn't yet seen it. I'm a sucker for a romantic comedy and this was all that and more. It also has Hugh *cough cough* Grant in it.

8. TV Series - Sex and the City 
I borrowed this TV series from the library one day and have been obsessed with it ever since. It's just your typical girly, romantic drama and I love it. It's also very funny!

9. TV Series - Keeping Up with the Kardashians 
Gee, this must have been the month of TV series and movies. If you haven't yet heard of the Kardashians, you're living under a rock and it's time to crawl out of it.

This series won't be everyone's cup of tea but if you like juicy, easy to watch shows, this is a good one.

10. Broccoli 
Don't ask why because I have no idea but I can't get enough broccoli lately. I don't know if this means I'm deficient in some sort of vitamin or mineral or if I'm just a new found vegetable addict, because I would go so far as to say I eat broccoli just about every day....yum! It's super tasty with soy sauce.
