May Favourites | Lifestyle

I can't quite believe it's June already, although looking out of the window it looks like anything but. May was actually a really good and exciting month for me and I can't wait to share what happened with you lovelies as well as share some of my favourites from the month. I thought I'd make a collage of photos from the month of May as it shows just a few of the things I have done/eaten/made/bought, you get the gist! I hope you enjoy this post, let me know in the comments if you want a monthly one. #

May was quite the one for going to places, I went to the usual like Starbucks, Pizza Hut and Spoons but I also went to new places like the Be At One (on the opening night! Read about it here) and also Revolution opened in Stafford and they have some amazing food!

Food & Drinks: 
I hosted my own BBQ which involved lots of pretty colourful food, as well as making a few batches of lovely cookies which tasted insane! I ate a lot of Subway during the month of May as it's my go to easy food and tastes so good, soz. Last month I was constantly drinking Frappe from Starbucks as they had happy hour on and also launched some new frappes which made super happy. I also drank a cocktail which was my first drink since my birthday in January. Still don't miss it.

Brand of the month: 
I have decided as part of my favourites posts I would include a brand I have loved throughout the month as well as sharing some of their amazing products, and that brand is Sleek. With their super fun and colourful pieces of makeup they had to make it into my favourites. With their gorgeous Snapshots palette I was hooked as I have been looking for a fabulously bright palette for ages and the fact they have loads of fun and pigmented colours this made me super happy. I am also in love with their lip palette, not usually something I would be into but the colours are ace and look fabulous on. I have created so many fun looks with the Sleek palette and they're budget friendly and also have a new stand in my local Boots, yay!

Products I've been loving: 
In May I visited Meadowhall where I met Fii (missed her loads, I did swatch up my hand a lot and wanted all of the colours but I went for those for loooads) and I was in Boots checking out the NYX counters where I purchased a fair few liquid suede lipsticks as well as some of their soft matte lip creams and I know I'll be back *nods* I've also been in love with the conditioners from OGX and although they're on the pricer side they are the only products which can stop my hair from matting and knotting together so I am down. I've tried a few different ones and I love them all.

I thought I'd end this post by sharing some exciting news with you all, if you didn't already know at the end of April I started training for my new job and throughout May I have been going to work and with anxiety this is a big thing for me! I love my new job and there is some really great people there which help me feel at ease. I am glad I able to go to work again as I hated not working!
