May has been a hectic study month, exams are all finished and now its time to actually care what I look like, rather than worry about the bare face I sported for the majority of the month.

London saw some beautiful weather...for about two days, so of course, no showing the pins was complete without some fake tan to pretend I was ready for the sun! I rekindled my love with He-Shi liquid tan which I reviewed a long time back but found the beauty again! You can check out my review and swatches with tan here. [LINK] Its a great tan to use and love the colour that it achieves. You shouldn't moisturise which I think is the most helpful part as it doesn't get tacky or move! 

After going to the gym more frequently my body has seen improvements, (YAY!) but lets not celebrate yet, I then gained a couple of stretch marks which wasn't helpful, but I've been using the L'Occitane Fabulous Skin Oil in the Shea range which is a beautiful oil to nourish the skin and moisturise without leaving a film or taking ages to sink in. I know stretch marks take a while to heal but I like to assist using oils as you can really massage these in and add moisturiser to enhance the oil properties. 

I've been really enjoying pink girlie items this month, I've been swaying to more rose based items and pink makeup products. I love a good contour and bronzed faced with a shimmer blush, matte blushes tend to wash me out unless its slightly satin so Vivo's Peaches and Cream blush which was so popular when Vivo was launched is my favourite this month. The gorgeous mineralise blush with pinks,purples and peaches is just gorgeous!

The fragrance I've reached for all month is Just Pink by Next. I had a gift card last month for next and really didn't know what clothing to buy knowing I'd have to add towards the voucher amount. When looking in the fragrance section I found a £10 Just Pink set with the EDT, A roll on EDT and a Just Pink tinned fragrance rub on. It was such a bargain and when I sprayed it, it took me back to my teenage years. The 13/14 years when I was just discovering the beauty world and the first fragrance I owned that wasn't high end and that wasn't an impulse body spray. It is just such a classic fragrance, similar to Lacoste Pink this is just the perfect girlie scent and I am glad to have a beautiful bottle of it in my possession.

The nail combo I've been wearing most recently is applying Barry M Gelly in Guava as a base and applying a layer or two of OPI Gone Gonzo polish on top to create a bold blue glitter fest. It looks so much fun on the nails, the only downside to this is that neither hand stayed for a long lasting look. I don't think together they last but for a night out or one occasion these will be a look I'll go for again!

My final favourite has been Lancome Doll Eyes Mascara in waterproof, I purchased this when they were celebrating a anniversary of the mascara range and were selling the mascaras at £10 each. I really didn't know which to get but went with Doll Eyes. Its a wonderful purchase, its a real 'eye opener' mascara and although not hugely lengthening as my beloved Benefit They're Real, its a great catch. I probably wouldn't pay full price for this because it just doesn't match They're Real but for £10 I'm in love since so many drug store mascaras are sold at that price and just cannot compare.

What have you been loving this month?
