Sam’s May Favourites

I cannot believe that it’s basically June, I’m not complaining, as I have lots to look forward towards the end of the year. I do hope that the summer doesn’t drag on, I’m not a fan of heat or sunshine, I’m all about snow and lack of sun!

So as I’m avoiding all the UV rays and vitamin d, I thought I’d share some of my favourite products from May with you…

Blueberry Rush by Scentsy – I found a pack of this in my stash and had completely forgotten about it and how yummy it was! Blueberry Rush is a super sweet blend of ripe blueberries, tart cranberry, lush blackcurrant and dark, luxurious pomegranate. To me it smells like blueberry candies, it’s so delicious and it’s such a happy, uplifting aroma.

Lemon Curd Candle by Flamingo Candles – This scent is the perfect balance of sweet and sour, tart, fizzy lemon sweetened by vanilla and sugar. But the reason I love it so much is it has this creamy buttery element to it, almost makes it smells sorta cakey. It makes me so hungry!

Burt’s Bees® Facial Cleansing Oil with Coconut & Argan Oils – I love how easy to use and effective this cleansing oil is, it gently removes dirt and makeup and doesn’t leave an oily residue. I just use a couple of squirts of this, massage it on my face and wipe off with wet cotton pads. It takes seconds to remove even the heaviest of makeup and leaves my skin feeling soft, clean, and beautifully nourished.

Garnier Naturals Honey Flower Toner – This is Garnier’s first toner that’s made of 96% natural ingredients and I LOVE it, it’s officially my new favoruite toner. It’s enriched with Honey Flower, which known for its nourishing properties and it leaves my skin feeling nourished and beautifully purified. This is such a bargain too, currently on sale on Superdrug for £2.29, but it feels so luxurious, it reminds me of some NUXE products.

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara – I had a sample of this for a while and I wasn’t all that fussed about, but then a friend recommended that I use it after using an eyelash curler and holy wow, I was super impressed, it was like I was wearing the most perfect, long, natural looking false lashes. Now I’m obsessed with it, I even bought two full sized ones, one can never have too many mascaras on the go. 😛

I Love… Raspberry & Blackberry Refreshing Body Spritzer – I’ve had this for a while but only opened it up recently. Raspberry & Blackberry is my favourite scent by I Love… I just can’t get enough of that shower gel. It smells like sugary, super sweet berry syrup, so to have that in a really strong and long lasting body spray makes me very happy.

Twinings Cherry & Cinnamon Tea – I love herbal and fruit teas and I’ve been totally addicted to this one. I enjoy it with a teaspoon of honey and it tastes so freaking yummy, like sweet cherry pie, but in tea form.

Refreshers Squashies – I have a slight jelly addiction but try not to have them that often, I randomly picked up a pack of these in my local pound shop and I inhaled them! They taste just like refreshers and are too sweet or too fizzy, they’re amazing. Perfect snack to munch on while you’re working away.

Say Yes To The Dress – I sometimes work all day and very late into the night, I just get on a roll and find it really hard to switch off. I’ve started watching episodes of Say Yes To The Dress to unwind and take my mind off work, now I’m hooked! I like all the various spinoffs but the Atlanta one is my favourite, they’re so sassy on it. I think perhaps I was a southern belle in a past life. 😛 I sometimes get way too into it and start yelling at all the crazy momzillas, my other half always laughs at me. If you’re looking for something to binge watch then this show is it!
