The May Edit

FAVOURITES | This month there was one clear beauty winner in the form of L'oreal True Match Foundation. I bought it after deciding none of my bases looked natural enough/lasted long enough/gave enough coverage (I don't ask for much), but I'm pleased to report true match delivers on all these accounts melting into the skin to a gorgeous natural but glowy finish that lasts all day and covers a multitude of sins. Fashion wise, it's been all about my beautiful orange Kurt Geiger's and the Motel co-ord I have coming up on Sunday. I've got to say how much I adore the gorgeous Kayleigh from Couture Girl too, who gave me the most lovely feature in her 'sharing the love' post and who I cannot wait to meet this Summer! Oh, and a big pink shout out to my personalised cupcake. 

BEAUTY NEWS | I have to say Benefit is bringing it in terms of new releases with the BeneBalms and b.right serum/sunscreen launching tomorrow and they're real! gel push-up liner coming out on June 28th. I've been lucky enough to get my mitts on it early (and also dress up in an orange jumpsuit for the blogger event) and it's genuinely revolutionised my eye-lining life to the point where I'm sporting seriously easy, long lasting wings every day of the week! I'm also buzzing to get my hands on the Models Own Polish for Tans and Essie Neon Collection as I'm loving all things bright right now- probably the reason I can't stop fawning over the new megawatt lip and nail shades from Maybelline

LIFE | This month has been one of the busiest but also the best. Work at BeneTowers has exploded with all the new launches, campaigns and events going on and whilst this can be stressful it means I'm part of some seriously exciting stuff and this month I got to meet my absolute blogging idols (you can see Kate, Corrie & Laura peeking out from my montage). I've also managed to mix my weekends up quite well between boyfriend, family, uni friends and home girls, which is something that can get pretty tricky when long distance is involved and I've even got some cat time pencilled in for the next couple of days. All in all life is crazy good and the pace shows no sign of slowing as tonight I'm running straight from work to see Miss Katy Perry at the O2!!  

NOTES | One thing that has fallen to the wayside with being so busy is my health and fitness- it's not that you'd notice any difference, but I've been too lazy to make a proper dinner too many times and haven't made use of my gym membership, so getting back into working out and eating healthily is high on the priority list this June. I've done a few power hours in my trainers this week and also started a 30 day ab challenge, so if you do want updates on my progress please let me know/follow me on Instagram. I also want to stick more strictly to my blog post and video schedule (on that note there's only one more day to vote for me as 'best established beauty blog' over at that big Cosmo button in my sidebar...mwah!) and worry that bit less and enjoy all the amazing things I get to do that bit more! WOOP.
