June Favourites

When I was younger the school days from 9:00 (ish) until 3:30pm always seemed to drag on, yet now I am older, when it gets to 3:30pm I am in a state of panic wondering where the day has gone and how I'm going to get all of my work done! My point is, that time seems to fly by and I cannot believe we are already into the second day of July 2014. Eeek!

Anyway, the start of a new month means it is time to share my favourites from last month and whilst I don't have many, the ones I do have are goodn's!

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water
In previous favourites posts I've sang the praises of the L'Oreal Micellar Water but it has now been well and truly replaced by the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. Why oh why didn't I try this earlier?  I much prefer it to the L'Oreal micellar water as it doesn't seem to leave the same sticky-ish finish on the skin. Whilst I usually use micellar waters to take off my eye makeup before using a cream or gel cleanser afterwards, on lazy days I am more than happy to just use this on it's own.

The Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water claims to offer 200 uses and whilst I haven't been counting, it definitely seems to be lasting well. A little goes a long way - which can't be said for all micellar waters.  If you are looking for a cheaper alternative to Bioderma, this is just £4.99 making it extremely purse friendly.

Bourjous '1 Seconde' Gel Polish
For me, summer is all about coral nail polishes. This one from Bourjois is the perfect coral shade and has a lovely gel-like finish. I am a real fan of the 1 Seconde Gel Polishes as although they don't dry in  one second, they do dry really quickly and are also fairly chip resistant. I think this polish will also look lovely with a tan - not that I ever get one!

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector
I was considering whether or not to include the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector (such a mouthful) in June's Favourites as I have featured it multiple times here on Seek My Scribbles, however it is a product that I reach for time and time again. It is the perfect blend between a lip balm and a lip gloss and adds a lovely sheer pink finish to the lips. It's incredibly moisturising and not at all sticky, making it perfect for everyday wear (even on windy days).

Since all of my favourite American TV programmes (The Originals, TVD, Grey's Anatomy) have finished for the summer, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to get back into reading regularly! I'm starting off with what I like to call easy-reads. Recently I've read The Fault in Our Stars (amazing book & amazing film) and last week I finished the first book in the Hush, Hush series. I know people have a 'thing' for real books, but I just don't feel the same way! I absolutely love how convenient my Kindle is and the fact I can order new books within just a couple of clicks. It will definitely be coming on holiday to Greece with me in September.

Do we share any of the same favourites?
