May flew by and with that comes a new monthly favourites!
It was a good month for me – I went for a stay at Tigerlily in Edinburgh with Blair and I headed off to London with my friend John for a few days at the end of the month, as well as some day trips here and there with my friend Rhys to some local landmarks.
But enough of that, let’s get onto the favourites.
Red Lips: If there was only one makeup trend that I was allowed to wear for the remainder of the year, it would be a red lip. Up until recently, I’ve always preferred burgundy/oxblood colours on the lips but now I’m converted to a true red. My favourite at the moment is Jeffree Star Redrum. It’s that perfect true red colour and nothing beats the Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick formula for me.
Essence Mosaic Blush: I picked this up on my trip to Manchester in April and I have to say it’s quickly become the only blusher I use. I’m not huge on blusher and only look for a slight hint of colour on my cheeks and I find this is great for that. It’s a perfect nude blush that is extremely affordable.
Oversized Denim Jacket: Since purchasing this in York, it’s basically the only outer garment I have been wearing, I am obsessed. I picked this one up from a cute vintage shop, Chinese Laundry. If you’re ever in York, I’d recommend taking a look if you like vintage fashion.
Espadrilles: It’s that time of the year when the weather is starting to improve (I’m typing this on an overcast, dreary day…) and I love to crack out a pair of espadrilles. This year, I’m loving this star print pair I picked up from Primark. I can’t remember how much they were exactly but you can expect them to be affordable.
Circle Lens Sunglasses: I’ve been lusting after a pair of round sunglasses for the longest time but for some reason I’d never actually gone through with the purchase. During a trip to Camden Market, I came across this dark pink, almost red, lensed pair at one of the stalls and bought them without hesitation. I wore them from the time of purchase until the day I came home from London.
Inthefrow: Victoria from Inthefrow (who blogs/vlogs about fashion, beauty, lifestyle & travel) is a major style inspiration for me and her posts are always meticulously executed with wonderful imagery. She is definitely a role model for any blogger!
SacconeJolys: The SacconeJolys are a family who vlog their day to day lives. Since the birth of their third child, Alessia, I’ve been a lot more engaged with the family and find myself watching every single video which I hadn’t done in quite some time.
Mcfly: I’m a Mcfly fan through and through, but recently my love for them has increased (which I didn’t think were possible) and I don’t go a day without listening to them. I’ll always be a Galaxy Defender.
London: I went on a short city break to London for 5 days at the end of the month so I felt it deserved a special mention. I won’t go into too much detail as I do plan on blogging about my time once I am home from Japan, but London is somewhere that I feel you could go again and again and never be bored.
That’s my monthly favourites for May! Let me know in the comments what you have been loving the past month. Also, if you missed my last post, I created a Youtube channel and uploaded my first video. I’d love if you could subscribe and show it some love!
