It's freaking me out a great deal at how quick this year is going - how the heck is it June on Sunday?! I just don't understand! I've got quite a few favourites this months; i actually had a hard time trying to narrow it down as there were other items i wanted to include too. I feel like this month has been quite a good month for me - I've done so many great things and i've had a lot of fun (literally, my non favourites would be way too long if i included everything)

Beauty Favourites:

UBU Wonder Wheel Foundation Sponge Circle
 I used to use sponges all the time when i was younger but i abandoned them for brushes but lately I've just been quite unsatisfied with using brushes so when i saw this little pack of sponges for 49p i decided to give them another go and I've really been loving using them. I use them for both my foundation and my concealer and it blends both of them out really nicely and I've really been liking the finish it gives my base.

Rimmel London Scandaleyes Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Nude Delight
I've been using this a lot lately on my waterline as the nude shade is a great way to really open up and brighten up the eyes - I'm a bit of a night out so when I'm up early for work this has been a great way to at least make myself look more awake. They are brilliant quality, really pigmented and creamy - they literally just glide along the eye and they are so affordable. Read my review here.

L'Oreal L'Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick in Rose Melody
I featured this in my recent lip look post here - as it's been one of my go to lip products of late. It's described as a liquid lipstick but I'd say it's more like a lipgloss. It has great colour pay off - this particular shade is a gorgeous light pink, it has a it of shimmer in there but its actually nice and subtle. It's quite long lasting and has a really creamy formula and I've just been loving wearing it.

Britney Spears Fantasy Perfume
I used to use this perfume ages ago in high school and it was one of my favourites as it has the most lovely sweet and floral scent. My mum got it for me again at Christmas and I've been loving wearing it again, i almost forgot just how much of a lovely scent this is - i receive a lot of compliments off people telling me how nice i smell when i wear this.

Soap & Glory Archery Brow Tint & Pencil
I can't express how much i adore this product - it has made doing my brows so much easier and i just love the results it gives. I really like using both ends of the product; i use the pencil on a more day to day basis and the tint i use more for evenings/nights out - both sides give really full and natural looking brows. Read my review here.

Gosh Forever Eyeshadow Metallic Eye Shadow Stick in Silver Rose & Brown
I'm a big fan of eyeshadow pencils; they are so quick and easy and Gosh have really impressed me with their offerings. I love wearing the two shades together to create a smokey eye look - it's so easy to do and it looks like you've spent more time on it than you actually have. They blend together really easy and they are so long lasting - they literally stay in place from morning til late at night! Read my review here.

Blackhead Killer Peel Off Masks*
I'm quite lucky to not really suffer with blackheads i do have a few on my nose but these also help to remove impurities, pimples and excess oils. I really enjoy using this face mask, i find face masks a great way to pamper myself and this is a peel off mask too which gives me a great deal of satisfaction, i love peeling it off - is that weird? However, i will say one thing peeling this off is rather painful. This mask always leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft and smooth and i really like using these masks. Read my review here.

Blogger/Youtube Favourite:
This months Blogger favourite is Vicky from Lets Talk Beauty - I've actually been following her blog for ages now and it never fails to disappoint. Her blog focuses mostly around make up and skincare but her posts are brilliant, she has a really nice writing style and her posts are always really informative. I've been lucky to meet Vicky in person and she is every bit as lovely as she comes across on her blog and twitter - if you are not already following her blog - id definitely recommend doing it!

Non-Beauty Favourites:

Blackpool
Myself and my friends had been on about going to Blackpool Pleasure Beach for the day as it had been ages since we'd all been and we finally did at the beginning of the month. It was such a great day despite the drizzly rain and we went on loads of ride - i finally went on the Big One which I'm so proud of myself for as i always chicken out last minute. Overall it was a really great day and i hope we go back soon!

Dawson's Creek
I decided to watch Dawson's Creek from the beginning as it's a show I've only seen odd episodes of but never actually watched all the way through. I actually really enjoyed it, it's a typical American teen drama with all the usual love triangles and scenarios but i really enjoyed watching and i grew very fond of Pacey Whitter.

Think, Write, Create Notebook
This notebook was a present from my lovely friend Gemma (@Zilmeg) for my birthday and i just love it. I didn't use it for a little while because whenever i get new notebooks i don't like messing them up so it takes me a bit of time to actually write in them (I'm weird, i know) but I've been using this for my blog and its really helped keep me organised - it has a different sections like overviews of the month, weekly planner, contacts, notes, checklists and others too and its just so helpful and its a really gorgeous design too so I'm loving this a lot!

Mcbusted
I went to see Mcbusted the other week (see my post here) and i bloody loved it, i felt like i did my inner 13 year old self proud as i never got to see Busted when they we're together. It was a really brilliant night and they put on such an amazing show!

Music Favourite:

Sixpence None the Richer - Kiss Me
I feel like this is such a random music favouite as this is such an old song but I've been loving it listening to it lately. Its one of those songs that i think everyone knows and it's such a 90s classic, i just love singing along to it! 

What are your favouites for the month of May?
