May Favourites 2017 - 1

May is drawing to a close, and finally we're starting to get some warm and sunny weather in the UK. The sun is streaming through my window as I write this, and I'm looking forward to finishing work for the day and maybe grabbing a cheeky glass of rose in the garden before dinner.

I really hope I haven't jinxed it now. If it's chucking it down with rain by the time you read this, I can only apologise!

May has been quite an eventful month. I was in London twice for blogger events, which was very exciting. I don't always write about every event I go to on the blog any more, but I usually share the experience via my Instagram Stories, so make sure you're following me on Instagram if you're not already and want to see what I get up to. (And just so you know, if I haven't posted anything in my stories, it's because I'm spending my time having an argument with my laptop or doing laundry and I don't think anyone needs to see either of those.)

Right, on to my favourites.

May Favourites 2017 - 2 - Benefit Ka-BROW!

1. Benefit ka-BROW! - When it comes to brow products, I used to be the biggest fan of Brow Zings, also by Benefit, until my sister recommended I try this instead. I was converted immediately. If you're already familiar with Brow Zings, ka-BROW! does pretty much the same job, but in one step instead of two, and with better results. It also comes in prettier packaging. It's a gel-cream consistency, comes with its own angled brush, and is essentially everything you need to create perfect brows in one product. I tend to use the brush to lightly draw in the shape of my brows first - I find this helps to cheat a neat, "just-waxed" look - and then use short strokes to fill them in and create more definition.

2. E.l.f. Natural Glow Face Palette* - I talked about this here and I'm still in love with it. Perfect for traveling, this offers a bronzer, highlight and choice of two blushes in one handy palette - all of which are in really beautiful shades, ideal for everyday wear. This has been working overtime for me ever since I got it.

3. Accessorize Chandelier Earrings - There is nothing remotely new or trendy about these, and in fact I've owned this particular pair of earrings for a few years, but something about the sunny weather has made me feel like digging them out again. I very rarely wear statement earrings, but every so often it's nice to change up your look, and this is quite an effective but simple way to do it. I think that big earrings work beautifully with off the shoulder or cold shoulder tops and I've really been enjoying giving this pair a new lease of life on evenings out this month. Accessorize have quite the selection and you can have a browse here if you feel so inclined.

4. River Island Top - This is so pretty and fresh looking, perfect for summery weather. I've mostly been wearing it with jeans and heeled sandals, but it would also look great with denim skirts or shorts. I honestly don't think you can have too many pretty tops and this one is a firm favourite right now.

5. Zara Loafers - So these do look a little bit like Granddad slippers, but they're kind of chic as well, or at least I think so! They're super comfortable, go with pretty much everything and look loads more expensive than they actually were - a totally bargainous £19.99. Good old Zara.

6. Z For Accessorize Constellation Necklace - I do enjoy my Accessorize jewellery, don't I?! Delicate little gold necklaces are always lovely and I particularly like this one due to the constellation design - I'm a sucker for a bit of astrology! This one is Scorpio (which, surprise surprise, is my star sign) and I've seen all the signs in store, though for some reason I can only seem to find Pisces on the website. These aren't expensive but they're really pretty and fun to wear.

  6. You have such awesome favorites here, girlie! I've heard such great things about both the Kabrow! and Elf palettes, both of which I've yet to try out myself, but I definitely want to. I also adore those loafers, they're so chic and look so comfy, too! Thanks for sharing and I hope you're having a great start to your week so far, girl!
