Some Current Favourites

I haven't done a Favourites post in months. I started doing them when I first began my blog because it seemed like the thing to do. However, I found that I wouldn't have always have favourite each month so I prefer just to do them when I feel there is things that warrant a place in a post like this.

There has been a few things that have really stood out to me in particular this month, both beauty and non-beauty.

First up is non-beauty. I spied this new Extra Strawberry chewing gum a couple of weeks ago and decided to try it out. It's been years since I tried any fruit flavour chewing gum. 
I think an overload of Juicy Fruit when I was about 10 kept me away from it. Besides I love a really strong fresh, minty chewing gum so I never felt the need to try a fruit one again. Anyway, on a whim I got these and I love them! They taste good. Not exactly realistic but not ridiculously artificial either. 
I then decided to venture out and try the Extra 5 in Flood which is berry flavoured. Again these are really nice and they make your handbag smell great lol! But yea, I've found these great for when you're craving something sweet. They help to hit the spot:)

Second favourite is a Tropical Topper from Juice. This particular one is mango frozen yoghurt with pineapple and kiwi. It tastes so good, you really feel like you're getting a treat. They're also surprisingly filling so they are great to have during a break at work. And they are really low calorie, only 197 in this one, much better than snacking on a chocolate bar! I'm also partial to the Berry one:)

First make-up favourite is my MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Redhead, applied with the 129 brush. This gives such an amazing glow to the skin. Sometimes I wear it alone but I also wear a light dusting of it over my blush and it adds a great extra dimension!

My new Shu Uemura eyelash curler. I honestly didn't think it would be as good as I hoped but it was! It makes a big difference to my lashes and in turn to the application of my mascara.

NARS eyeshadow in Galapagos. This gorgeous coca brown with gold shimmer has being responsible for smoking out my everyday neutral a lot this month. It's a very buttery soft eyeshadow and applies lovely.

My final favourite for the month is this Korres Lip Butter in Wild Rose. It doesn't apply as strong as it looks in the pot but it does give enough colour to look red. Perfect for daytime if you don't want to rock a full red lip.

What items have you being loving lately?


  1. I bought that eyelash curler when it was still available in Sephora. I've been meaning to replace it or buy a back up but I hate having to pay for shipping.

    1. Argh I know! The price of shipping can be so annoying!

  2. Im totally with you on the love for the mac mineralize skinfinish. I purchased this in blonde, and I am in love! Its a fantastic product and makes me look healthy and glowy!


    1. I actually think it's the best product I've bought from Mac!!

  3. I must say I'm really tempted by Shu Uemura eyelash curler but I think it's stupid that the rubber pads are not available separately ): Galapagos looks GORGEOUS!
