I always really enjoy watching 'monthly favourites' videos on Youtube, but as I am not brave enough to get in front of the camera I thought I would do my own written version. I am going to keep it to just five things so the posts aren't too long, but I will change the categories every month depending on what I've been loving!
Last month I couldn't get enough of Models Own 'Fuzzy Peach' nail polish. I have owned this polish for a little while, but I have only just realised how amazing it is. The colour is a gorgeous creamy orange that is bright, but not quite neon. I find it so wearable with all sorts of outfits. I have worn it pretty much all month (obviously I have repainted my nails a number of times) with the exception of a few days where I wore Revlon Red. Fuzzy Peach is the perfect shade for summer and will look gorgeous with a slight tan!
I was quite late to the party with the Maybelline 24 Hr Colour Tattoo for eyes, but I am now well and truly in love with 'On and On Bronze.' The metallic bronze shade looks gorgeous on its own, but I often apply one of the bronze or gold shades from the Vivo Unprotected palette over the top to make my eyes stand out more. I love the light creamy formula and how it doesn't budge all day! I have also purchased Permanent Taupe and have my eye on Eternal Gold and Eternal Pink.
If it wasn't for Fee from Makeup Savvy, I wouldn't have known about Tony Moly and their adorable products. After seeing one of Fee's blog posts on the Tony Moly Gloss Bars I headed straight to eBay to purchase one for myself. I decided to go for one of the tinted gloss bars, but you can also purchase ones that are just scented. The gloss bar I chose is orange tinted, but I find if apply it a few times it goes more of a bright pinky shade on my lips. It smells of tangerines and is so moisturising, without being greasy. I usually apply if after I have used by Lush bubblegum lip scrub. If I'm going out I'll often apply a lipstick over the top, but I'm also happy wearing it on its own. I will definitely be purchasing more Tony Moly products, I simply can't resist the adorable packaging!
Favourite TV show: House (Series 1 - 6)
My boyfriend and I borrowed my dad's box set of House (series one to six) and we are well and truly hooked. I'm gutted that I only have two series left to watch (going out to buy season seven and eight today). If you enjoy medical dramas and didn't watch House when it was originally on television then you definitely need to give it a go! It's actually very funny in parts but then some episodes are EXTREMELY sad - a very good mix all in all! It's nearly rivalled my love for Grey's Anatomy...and I have a lot of love for Grey's.
Favourite song: Icona Pop - I love it
I think this one of those songs, where you either REALLY love it, or absolutely hate it. I first heard it on Vampire Diaries...or Glee I can't remember which. It's very simple, there aren't many words, but there's something about it that just makes me feel happy when I listen to it.
