Current Loves! May Holiday edition

I can't believe how quick May has come and almost gone! I have had a really good month, Mainly because I went on holiday to sunny Spain.. But for now onto the products!

Loriel Skin perfecting BB cream in light £12.99

(bought on discount in TJ Huges for around £6-8)

This month I have been loving lightweight dewy foundations, I have re found my love for BB creams. This blends into the skin like a dream and leaves a nice flawless perfected look and gives very good coverage, I wore this on my holiday and my skin looks glowing!

Malibu Miracle tan £2.99 Home Bargains

This stuff is beyond amazing! I never ever ever tan, I just stay the same shade of white or I'll burn and be red even with the highest factor!, Last year I went to turkey and come back whiter than I went! As I said I had a mini 5 day holiday to the Costa Brava AND I GOT A LITTLE TAN! 

The idea of this product is it is a tan accelerator you use it before and after you have been in the sun, I used this along with my SPF 30 (gotta be protected guys!) it contains no fake tan but just some how makes your skin tan using the skins own melanin. I don't know how it works but I didn't burn at all.. and I got a nice little tan.. it also makes a lovely body moisturiser and have been using it at home since!

Elizabeth 8 hour lip balm

Whilst I was in the airport I needed a lip balm but stupidly it was in my suitcase! The only lip balm I could find was this for 7 euro! I've heard so so so so many good things about this and they are so right.. it soothed my lips instantly and felt like a major relief.. I have been using this ever since religiously.

Soap and Glory Solar Powder £11 Boots.

Its all about bronzer in the summer! Gotta make yourself look like a bronze goddess after all.. I love this bronzer because even if you're super pale or tanned it just works, its not orange just a lovely shade of bronzer that looks natural.

Primark textured effect Nail varnish £2

I love nail varnish but I can't wear it everyday due to work rules, My nail varnish of choice was this from Primark.. unfortunately it doesn't have a name but it is a gorgeous orange pink glitter. This was only £2 and didn't chip at all. 

Soap and Glory Trick and treatment £9.50 

I was in desperate need of a new concealer for my under eyes, I picked this up because it was on offer on a whim, I've never seen any reviews or anything on this but thought I'd give it ago, It is brilliant! It conceals your under eye area like a dream and blends so nicely most importantly.. It doesn't crease! Winner. 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip brow pomade £15

I have been using this product for months, I haven't touched a different brow product since, it is a little pot of dream. I tell you! if you want brows on point that do not budge, I 100% recommend this with a good pointed eyebrow brush your onto a winner. At £15 its not the cheapest but overall you will save money because you need so little it will last you ages! 

Max factor excess shimmer copper.

Summer is all about the minimalistic glowy look, and this little cream eyeshadow is perfect for adding a little bit of colour and sparkle to your eyes! I apply a little bit of this daily blend and apply mascara and it looks like you've made a lot of effort when in fact you've made non.. Amazing!

I will finish the post of with some holiday pics, It really was perfect. We went to a little place just outside of Barcelona called Calella.

Our amazing view from the balcony! 

Gorgeous roof terrace where we spent most of the week sunbathing and sipping cocktails in the Jacuzzis 
Beach, Sun and cocktails.. that is all! 


  1. Lots of helpful beauty products here. I might have to try the tan accelerator, I don't tan easily, avoid fake tan lotions (I go a lovely shade of orange) and that bronzer looks lovely! 😄

  2. There are some lovely products here, I really want this soap and glory powder and the treatment! x
