May Faves!

Hey everyone, Laura here.

I thought I'd do a little post on my favourite things that I loved during the month of May! But first, can I just say it is insane how fast this year is going already! It'll be Christmas again before we know it! Anyhoooo...



My first fave of May is Garnier Summer body mosturising lotion. This stuff is a god send. Not only does it leave your bod very smooth & smell so yummy, it also has a gradual tanner in it. So if like me, you live somewhere that gets hardly any sun, but you like to look like you live somewhere that does then this is perfect for ya. And I'm pretty sure it's on offer in Tesco just now! Or at least it was, the last time I was in! Haha.


Soap & Glory's hand food. A handbag essential! I work with my hands a lot in work, so they can often feel super neglected and that's where this bad boy comes in. Like all soap & glory products it smells uh-mazing, and it leaves your hands feeling so soft. I try to use this daily, but I get super lazy and tend to do it every few days (a habit I'm trying to break). Your hands show your age, so look after them while you're young. You'll thank yourself later! A fact I'm trying to drill into my own head! Practice what you preach, right?!


Barry M Gelly Nail Paint in Lychee. I am loving nude nails at the moment, I think they are so chic. This is the best one I've found so far, but I am always hunting for more. The Gelly formula, is supposed to last a lot longer than your bog standard polishes, and I think that's pretty true. Like I said I work with my hands a lot so nail polishes tend to only last a few hours, but with this I get at least a full day! Love.

Ah, Vera. How I love thee. This is hands down my favourite perfume of all time. I couldn't even tell you how many times I've repurchased this. It smells so so amazing and everytime I wear it, I get complimented on it. But please do yourself a favour and get yourself to the nearest perfume counter, smell this & then buy it! I actually found this bottle in b&m for only £14.99!! Crazy right?! Also have a wee look in your local TK Maxx as I've also found the large bottle in there for around £25!



Okay. I'll admit it, I used to never use lipbalms. Like ever and it really showed everytime I put on lipstick. Naaaaasty. But ever since Gemma bought me one of these babies for my birthday, I've been converted to a lipbalm lover! These smell (and taste) so good and leave your lips feeling super duper soft! You can usually find them on offer in Superdrug etc so defo give them a wee look at, the next time you go in!


I have my beaut mum to thank for this next fave, as she is the one who picks and buys the shampoo and conditioner that goes in our shower. I have naturally super frizzy hair, and this really helps tame the frizz. Plus smells so good! I'd really recommend this range of hair products!


Mr Sam Smith's Nirvana E.P. I am in love. I had the pleasure of seeing Sam at Radio 1's Big Weekend (which I've done a post on!) and managed to catch Sam's set. He was absolutely incredible, and his vocal range is insane. He sounds just as good live as he does in his recordings. But the song Nirvana has been on repeat for me, for ages. I just can't stop listening. His new album has also just came out, so make sure to buy it on iTunes, or instore etc! You won't regret it! Check out or insta for a cheeky wee video of the crowd singing along to Stay With Me when Sam played it at Big Weekend!


My favourite piece of clothing this month, is this gorgeous playsuit from H&M. The amount of times I've had this on is ridiculous. But I don't even care, I love it so so much, and it's super comfy. I wear it with a cute, black lace bandeau as it is a little "booby." There is a little popper on the front of it, but I'm not a fan of how it sits on me, with it closed! This lil beaut was only £20!! And can be dressed up, or down. So I will forsure be getting the wear outta this!


Yep. I admit it. I'm a fan. I'm sorry, but I just love it. I used to never watch, but my best friend is a big fan, and kept on at me to watch it, so I did and fell in love. I mean gorgeous, well spoken English men. Hellooooo?! Even though you know a lot of it is set up purely for entertainment, it's still really good. And the fashion, is to die for. Like, I need to have Lucy's wardrobe... In my life. Right now!


Okay, so there ya have it. My May faves!

What are you loving this month?! Leave a comment and let us know!


Until next time,

Lotsa love,
