What I've Recently Been Loving



I suppose I had my heart set on writing a monthly favoruites, only just now, at the time of writing this post, it is only the 19th of July, too late for a June favourites and too early for a July. So, let's just call it a 'mid-month favourites', or in this case a 'what I've recently been loving' kind of post.

All through Spring, I have admittedly failed miserably when it comes down to reading. But, as soon as exams were over, I was keen to get my nose stuck into a few more books. Last week, my friend passed on Extraordinary Means for me to read. There's not much for me to say about this, apart from the fact that it left me speechless and I finished it within two days. I've spent more after finishing this damn book questioning life than I did spend actually reading it. I will say that if you are a sucker for a sad, romantic voyage, then this book certainly has your name on it.

Secondly, my brow game has stepped up to another level since my mother very kindly bought me home a new eyebrow pencil, after the remains of my last one got crushed. If you are someone who prefers a pencil, like myself, then this L'Oreal Brow Artist Shaper pencil is a good one to purchase. The colour is slightly on the dark side, but I can make my brows look natural enough considering the pencil comes with a wax and small brush on the other end.

The Body Shop never fail to impress me with their skin care products, so of course I couldn't refrain from including their Chanvre Crème Protectrice Pieds foot-cream in my favourites. Most of the summer, I walk around either bare foot or in sandals, and the last thing I want is dry skin on my feet. This cream really does help to demolish any traces of dry skin, leaving the soles of my feet feeling as soft and new as a baby's bottom (cringes at own writing).

Obviously, this post would not be complete without me sharing the wonders of my first DNKY perfume. Ok, I lie, it's my mums, but for the purposes of this post, it's mine. Literally, this glass bottle screams summer, and I look forward to spritzing myself with the beauty it contains every morning.

What have you been loving recently? Do any of your favourites match mine?

  13. I honestly have never heard of Extraordinary Means until today, but now it sounds like such a good book. I've added it to my ever growing list of books I need to read.

  14. I am not a fan of the chanvre scent (even though I know it works wonder) so I bought the peppermint intense foot cream from The Body Shop yesterday! My feet are in serious need of TLC. Xx

  15. The Body Shop's foot creams sounds so appealing as the seasons is playing havoc with my feet - block-heeled sandals are not my feet's friend! haha :)
