May Favourites

Hey Guys,

So I love reading blogs about people’s monthly favourites and I decided to have a go at one myself.

All My May Favourites

First thing that I have loved this month is my book – Boys don’t cry – It had such a good storyline of a 17 year old bringing up a baby. The baby gets dumped on her father and this story is the twists and turns that occur as he brings up his baby daughter. The twists in this book really make it gripping and I was unable to put it down. I really recommend it!

Secondly, I have purchased a body moisturiser which is made my Ghost and smells divine, it makes your body feel silky smooth and gives your skin a fabulous glow. As well as this, I bought my first Soap and Glory product – the Sugar Crush Hand Food. This really works wonders on dry and cracked hands!

I also purchased a new moisturiser for my face as when I wake up it is quite dry, but this hydrates my face and then gives me a glow before putting on my foundation. However I recommend the whole ‘simple’ range as all their products have worked wonders on my skin and they make a significant difference. Due to me not liking the glow effect, I use the L’Oreal primer which then gives my foundation a matte effect which is the look I like.

Finally, I was in desperate need of a new mascara and it was actually the packaging that drew me into this one. I found it so chic, in comparison to the metallic bottles that you find. After reading it had oils in it I was very intrigued as to what this mascara would do for my eyes. After the first use, I found such a difference compared to the other ones I’ve used. It gives a false lash effect and even a bit of smoky eye is emphasised when using this one.

Luscious Lips Care Tip

It’s that time of year again where the air is icy and wind is chilled when everyone wraps up and lives off hot beverages. However, one thing everyone forgets to take care of is our lips. They are probably one of your best features when they are looking good. Every guy loves a smile right? Perhaps not so much when they are flaky and red. Lips are rarely anybodies priority when it comes to taking care in the winter months. Yet we always moan about them when it’s too late and they are chapped and swollen due to the conditions of the outside world.

I have personally been a sufferer of chapped lips during the winter time and this year I wanted to make a change to what I go through. I browsed the lush website for their lip scrubs and treatments, but £5.20 was a bit out of my price range for something I could make myself for a hell of a lot cheaper. It has worked wonders and for all you females out there looking for a product to give you luscious lips that your friends would die for, I thought I would share what I did.

Step 1

I placed 1 tablespoon of golden caster sugar as this will be used to actually scrub and exfoliate the lips, making them small

Step 2

Next I added a teaspoon of olive oil, or enough to cover the sugar and turn it slightly yellow. This is the moisturising part to the scrub so your lips do not dry out.

Step 3

I then added a small amount of honey, I used a gluten free syrup type thing, but you can use any kind of honey. This was to bring the mixture together and sticky. Not too much though as you don’t want it too sticky (what a mess that would be)

Step 4

This was when I added a small amount of Vanilla Essence to create a slight flavour to the scrub. This is completely optional, but it does make it taste scrummy as well. You can also add food colouring at this stage to give it some colouring.

Step 5

Once I had made my scrub and stirred it I had to try it! I mean, who wouldn’t want to try a creation they had just made. So I took a small amount on my finger (after washing them) and scrubbed onto my lips, in small circular motions. I then left it for about 1 minute and then I washed it off using a damp flannel and patted dry.

Step 6

Finally once my lips had dried, I used Nivea lip butter in Raspberry Rosé flavour to moisturise my lips.

This has really helped my lips and they are ever so smooth now and feeling luscious and beautiful. So now I’m ready to set foot out in the cold and not have any worries about ruining my favourite feature ( my smile )

If you try this, please drop a comment letting me know how you get on 🙂

These are the ingredients I included in my creation 

Golden Caster Sugar, remember 1 tablespoon

Olive Oil - Remember, 1 teaspoon or enough to cover the sugar

Vanilla Essence - Remember only a little for a subtle flavour

Lip butter - Cheap from any supermarket or pharmacy

Here is the final product. Not too appetising but it works wonders 

Final Product! Doesn't look appetising I know, by my gosh it works a treat!
