Monthly Favourites // May 2014

It's monthly favourites time again! I have some fashion and beauty bits, and a few extras at the end.


Fashion & Beauty
1. Playsuit // Choies
I have a full post dedicated to this playsuit in the works, so I won't go into too much detail here. Overall, it is gorgeous, with a pretty floral print perfect for this time of year. I love being able to put this on and have an entire outfit ready to go. And, it's the only playsuit I've ever had fit me properly, which I why I love it so much!

2. Denim jacket // New Look
Just your bog-standard denim jacket here, but it's probably the most worn item in this post! I really like wearing this light wash denim jacket to stay casual and brighten up an outfit.

3. Skirt // H&M
Featured in my Spring Lookbook, this mint skater skirt is the perfect pop of colour to add to an outfit. It's almost neon actually, but the colour means that it compliments a lot of different outfit combinations. Plus, I always get compliments when I wear it!

4. Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayons // Fuchsia Libre, Plum Russian, Red Sunrise
I know Plum Russian was included in my last monthly favourites, but I have included it and the other two crayons (that I own) here because they are seriously the only things I have been sporting on my lips recently. The formula is glossy without being sticky, moisturing, and they all wear very well without looking patchy. I honestly cannot fault them!

5. Rimmel Stay Blushed! Liquid Cheek Tints // Pop of Pink, Sunkissed Cherry
On a similar note, here are the two shades of this blusher that I own. I've been switching up between the two of these, as I love the formula. They are a little runnier that a cream blush but blend just as well and with fantastic lasting power. Again, something I cannot fault!

Other
1. Film // X-Men Series
As many of you probably know already, the newest X-Men film came out this month! I actually haven't seen it yet due to studying for exams, but here in the UK various TV channels have been showing the previous films in the series at nighttime. I loved being able to them watch all over again.

2. Music
I have to give a special mention to McBusted as I got to see them perform this month! I wrote up a full post on the night but in short they were outstanding, so definitely a monthly favourite of mine. Also, I always make a monthly playlist on my 8tracks account, featuring the eight songs I've listened to the most that month. This month it features McFly, Busted (duh), Ingrid Michaelson and more so go have a listen!

  2. I haven't seen the Rimmel Liquid Cheek Stains in the US, are they anything like the Benefit tints?

    1. I personally haven't used the Benefit tints so I can't give you a very good comparison, but I'd still say not quite. They are a little more mousse-y than the Benefit ones, and you can't use the Rimmel ones on the lips like with Benefit's. They are really good though, and they shouldn't be too expensive in the US so if you can find them I'd suggest giving one a go! ^_^
