June Favourites 2015

june favourites

June has come to an end, Summer has officially begun and July is bringing with it lots of outings, adventures and sunshine, sunshine, sunshine (here’s hoping I haven’t spoken too soon!). 

So, here’s what I’ve been loving in June!

summer skincare for oily skin

SeroZinc - La Roche-Posay (£8.50)

You know me and toner, we’re not exactly they best of friends, but this little blue canister is fast becoming my best friend. SeroZinc reached ‘cult’ status within weeks of it being launched and since getting my hands on a can I can see why. A spray on zinc sulphate solution for oily, blemish prone skin, it ’s hypoallergenic and does a wonderful job at soaking up any excess oil and keeping it a bay the whole day through.

Original Skin - Origins (£32)

I tried a sample of this a while back and was hooked after just one sachet. Infused with skin renewing willowherb, Original Skin is targeted at skin going through a quarter life crisis. Transitioning from the mid to late twenties, it’s hard to know what skin care line to go down, but this ticks all the boxes. Brightening, smoothing, tone correcting and de-stressing, it’s perfect for skin that’s not quite ready for full on hardcore anti-ageing products.

Night - a - Mins - Origins (£34.50)

Want to wake up looking like you’ve had a full 8 hours undisturbed beauty sleep? Here it is, oil free, packed full of skin loving nutrients and vitamins; a look of pure radiance and refreshment awaits you in the morning! This has been a skin saviour this past month as sleep has been seriously hard to come by! 

no7 high shine lip gloss spf15

No7 High Shine - Tangerine Twist (£9)

Summer in a lip gloss! I am in love with this No7 gloss, it glides on but doesn’t leave too sticky a residue behind so my hair doesn’t get all stuck and caked in it. Though it looks like a bright coral it actually goes on super subtle, with just a hint of colour. It’s shiny without being a tube full of glitter too so it does feel like a more ‘grown up’ lip gloss. The big bonus? It’s SPF15 - this will be going everywhere with me while the sun is shining! 

money saving tips for summer

You’ve been loving…Money saving tips for summer!

You’ve all been loving my money saving tips for summer post this past month - and I can’t say I blame you! The sun is shining, we want to spend those hard earned pennies on beer gardens, floral maxi dresses, trips to the sun when our heat wave comes to an abrupt end. By making a few small changes here and there, we can quickly save up the money we need to make it a summer to remember!

I’ve not been loving…

Blogging. OK, that sounds like a biggie I know but it’s not, I’m not going anywhere or anything, I promise! I’ve just been getting myself bogged down with it lately, beating myself up over missing posts, putting up crap that I’m not proud of because I feel like I have to post something, anything, to stop my blog vanishing into the blogging black hole. There’s a lot more to it than that, but maybe that’s something I could cover in a separate post? I’ve taken a tip-toe back from it all over the last couple of weeks and it’s been pretty refreshing. Posts are planned, scheduled and I’ve got a few ideas up my sleeve that I want to try. 

What’s been the highlight of your June? Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time, 


  1. Sorry you have been feeling down about blogging. I know that feeling. And it sucks! A break and step back away from blogland will help! I hope you have a great July :)


    1. I think my step back ended up being longer than anticipated but I'm feeling much better about everything now, sometimes you just need a break! I forget the blog isn't the be all and end all, it's a hobby and it's fun, I just have to keep it that way lol!

  2. Is good to take a break when you don't feel is something you are happy with. I'm glad you feel better about blogging now. x

    1. I think if it feels forced then it's going to come ten fold in my posts so why put readers through that? lol! I am feeling much better about it all now and bursting with ideas again! Hurrah!
