June Favourites 2014

june favourites 2014

Is it really this time of the month again? June feels like it has barely begun and already it's over! This year is flying by and it's terrifying! Eek!

Let's jump right into what I've been loving this past month!

ESPA foam bath.

I've been loving creating my own at home mini spa experiences on Sunday night; it ends the weekend nicely and gets me ready for the week ahead. I'm head over heals in love with this foam bath from ESPA. It is so relaxing and smells incredible. The bubbles are unreal too! Just a splash of this and your bath will be overflowing with silky smooth bubbles. Pair with some music and a candle and you'll drift off into a perfect state of calm!

ESPA Energising Shower Gel

The opposite of the above, this is the perfect way to wake up in the morning! Its a lively scent that awakens the senses and sets you up to tackle the day ahead. The eucalyptus and peppermint scents are so strong, I love it! The next best thing to a strong cup of tea to wake you up in the morning! 

Benefits Porefessional

I didn't think I'd ever replace my trusty Laura Mercier primer but it looks like the impossible happened! I've been loving using this as a base. It leaves my skin looking smooth, even, and provides as great base for my foundation. You can read my review here!

Washi Hot Cloth

If you've been keeping up to date with the blog or my twitter feed this month then you'll know just how much I've been loving these Washi hot cloths! I use them first thing in the morning and my skin is just loving them right now! If you want to know more about the pros and cons of hot cloth cleansing I've wrote a little guide for you here!

Hot Buns

I'm not very sure if I've mentioned these before but oh me oh my, they're my hairstyle savoir right now! I'm useless with my hair and it's super long now too. If it’s not in a ponytail then it's down straight (occasionally I might even dare a curl!) Sometimes you just want it up and out the way! Hot Buns provides a bobby pin free way to put my hair up in a smooth and sleek large bun, making me look a pinch sophisticated and polished. 

Thirteen Weddings - Paige Toon

I wanted some light summer reading and this was perfect. What do you do when your one night stand abruptly walks out the door, stomping all over your heart as he goes? Just when you tell yourself you’re over him, he comes back into your life, a fiancĂ© on one arm and the remnants of your heart on another. He's confused your obsessed and theirs someone waiting and watching from the wings to make a move. Funny, moving and an easy read, perfect for days in the sun!

How to fall in love - Cecilia Ahern

Easily one of my favourite authors, she hit the nail on the head yet again with this one! You've got a suicidal rich boy and a self-help obsessed recruitment manager who's just walked out of her marriage. They're not just looking for love; they're looking for a reason to live too. Touching with light humour, it definatly made me think about what it really means to love life and everything in it. 

Penny Dreadful.

I'm still trying to decide if I love this show or now. I love the casting and its pretty well written too but I wasn’t expecting an American gun slinger, demon possession, Frankenstein, Van Helsing, vampires, Dorian Grey, orgies and a half naked Billie Piper all in the one show! I am sticking with it for now, but I'm a few episodes behind so if you watch it - no spoilers please!

Well, that's what I've been loving over this gone in a flash past month! I really hope time takes a break and slows down! I'm not ready to start Christmas shopping just yet! 

What have you been loving this past month? Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time,


  1. I really want to try a Washi cloth, I heard about them a while back. I love Paige Toon, but not read that one yet, i've just read About a Girl by Lindsay Kelk (got a review on my blog). The Cecilia Ahern one I haven't heard of, but I will keep an eye out for it. Great June favs post. :)

    1. The Washi cloths are well worth checking out, I can't start my day without using one now! Love them so much! Cecilia Ahern is one of my favorite authors, there's not a book of hers I haven't read! I'd highly recommend P.S I Love You, Where Rainbows End and Thanks for the Memories!
