May Favourites

Gordon The Puppy

Oh Gordon! I can’t believe he only came into our lives this month! It already feels like we have had him forever! He’s such a little cutie! To tell the truth, I haven’t really done a huge amount of work this month because I’ve been so busy playing with him. I’d apologies, but I’m not sorry!! Isn’t he adorable?! Literally my life recently has revolved around this little cutie!

This month I have been listening to the podcasts Empire on Blood (all about gangs, drug dealers and The Bronx) which I have been loving. I’ve also been relistening to old episodes of Criminal because even though I’ve already listened to them, I love the stories so much and it’s just so darn soothing! I’ve also been loving Lizard People which is a comedy podcast around conspiracy theories, each week a guest gives their case for why this conspiracy theory is not a theory and instead it’s FACT! It’s pretty great! On Audible, I have listened to Lost At Sea: The Jon Ronson Mysteries, which is a collection of short documentaries, some I loved, some I liked, but SO worth downloading with your next credit. I also liked Everything You Told Me and The Couple Next Door. If you aren’t signed up to Audible yet, I urge you to get it… it’s SO DARN GOOD!! Oh and if you sign up with this link, you will get your first 30 days free and your first credit free too. If you don’t love it, cancel it, but like Netflix, you won’t wanna quit! PS. How darn cute are these Happy Plugs headphones?! If you want to get 20% off a pair for yourself, use the code HAPPY20B.

egyption magic balm face cream

Egyptian Magic Multi-Use balm

This is a long-time ‘Love’ product of mine and I wanted to give it a shout out as i have just got a new tub of it. It’s called Egyptian Magic Multi-Use balm and it’s amazing for use on your face, hands, wherever you want but it’s especially effective for rashes, sunburn and skin conditions like eczema. When I’m travelling, it doubles as a cleansing balm and it’s the only thing which relives my dads eczema. It used to be classed as a cult product and hard to find on the high street, but word has spread over the past few years and it can now be found at Boots and Amazon amongst many others! AMAZING!

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Palette

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Palette

I’ve been a long time fan of the iconic Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks, so imagine my excitement when I found out they have released a Shimmer Brick Palette! Seriously, what more could a girl want? Three luminous shades of rose, gold and bronze. Use together or separately for that perfect summer glow! Seriously smitten with this one… move over eyeshadow palettes, I’m all about the radiance palettes and this one is the creme de la creme!

Ok, is it just me, or has TV been REALLY disappointing lately?! I’ve been hard up for TV and I’m finding it really hard to get excited by anything. I have re-watched some episodes of Sex & The City, which was obvs fun.


Miller Harris ‘Rose Silence’ Bath Oil

Another one of my all-time favourite products, but what can I say, this month I have been rediscovering a lot of old favourites and I’ve been loving it! This Miller Harris Rose Silence Bath Oil is just stunning, I know I’ve chatted about it many times before, but I can never get enough of it and now it’s been re-packaged into a beautiful glass bottle, it feels even more opulent and special than ever before. I have a bottle in my bathroom and I put one in my mums too. This one is so good, it needs to be shared… over and over again!

Adidas X Stan Smith Trainers

My default summer look is always a vintage style dress and a pair of mega comfortable (and cool) trainers. I’m all about the comfort, y’know? These Adidas X Stan Smith Trainers are my perfect summer trainer; Black (so they go with everything), a little glitz (rose gold leopard print detailing) and super-duper comfortable… who could ask for more?! Oh wait, they came from so they are also mega thrifty. Can you believe these bad boys were on sale?!

Jane Reinhardt Rainbow Ring

Jana Reinhardt Rainbow Ring

I have been looking for a rainbow stoned ring for a while now, but it’s been tricky finding the perfect one. I’ve finally found it in the form of  Jana Reinhardt’s Rainbow Ring! She has a glorious collection of jewellery, lots of rainbows and unicorns and magic, head over to her website to see more because it’s truly special! Isn’t this ring just perfect?

bonjour paris matalan tee shirt brand new curve style uk

Matalan Everything

Seriously, I’ve turned into a Matalan addict! I’ve been buying their homewears, clothing, accessories…. I’m all over it! Best buys include this tee-shirt for a mere £10, as well as Gordon’s blue Moroccan inspired rug for £100. Honestly, I’ve gotten everything from here from bedding to a bread bin! I feel like I’m late to the Matalan partttteeeee!

liberty london cushion

Liberty London Cushion

I can’t believe we are finally at the stage where I can start having fun and accessorising the house! I honestly NEVER thought I would get here! It almost makes me feel kind of emotional! Anyway, the fun part is here and I am absolutely smitten with my new Liberty London Cushion, it’s the most beautiful print, it’s so full and opulent and it’s made of stunning velvet. I. Am. Obsessed!

teapigs tea and a teddybear biscuit

Teapigs Peppermint Tea

Now that the weather is warming up, I’m rejoicing in the fresh minty taste of peppermint tea and for me, it has to be teapigs. It’s the best! I’m going to be hosting some teapigs giveaways on my twitter very soon, so make sure you look out for them!

Kurt Geiger Rainbow Shoes

Oh these shoes! They are from Kurt Geiger and I looked at them for MONTHS before I finally took the plunge! Aren’t they amazing?! It doesn’t matter how much you tell yourself you don’t need the fabulous shoes… you actually do!

And there we have it… my May Favourites! Not gonna lie, my whole month has revolved around Gordon, just check my twitter and instagram, it’s all about Gords.
