So May was a blur and before I realised it I was halfway through June, so I just started collecting things for this month’s favourite’s post. And here we are….and guess what I am early!!!!!
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette
I’ll be honest. I’ve always been more of a bronzer girl than a blush girl. It comes from having super sensitive skin that always has a tinge of red to it anyway so I always thought that I never needed any additional help in that department. How wrong I was. This Hourglass palette has really converted me. At first, I thought that all I would use would be the Mood Expose shade. And to be honest, it’s still my favourite. But I have surprised myself by venturing out of my comfort zone and on certain days depending on my mood and my outfit, I have used and enjoyed the other two shades! I think it is because the powder formulas are so easy to use and blend so well.
Jo Malone Wood Sage and Sea Salt Candle
I have vowed to never tell my Mother that I paid $85 for a candle that I purchase from the Jo Malone Counter at David Jones. I mean, when you stop and think about it you really do have to be a little crazy. But, this fragrance is so very worth it. I love the perfume and I love the freshness of this candle. When I want to spoil myself after a busy day at work or on a lazy weekend afternoon/evening, I burn it for a little while and just sit back and relax and dream of a sunny beach far away. Pure bliss. I love this range from Jo Malone. Makes a lovely gift for that special best friend or family member.
Alterna Hair Care Cavair Moisturising Shampoo & Conditioner
It’s all Fleur De Force’s fault. Fleur has talked many times about the Cavair hair range and her purchases from Sephora so I couldn’t help but purchase a travel set and of course, I love it too. It doesn’t wait down your hair and has a nice fragrance and leaves my hair feeling hydrated. This is going to be an expensive habit – but I am on a hair care no buy at the moment as my cupboard and bathroom is full of products that I need to use up first.
Laura Mercier Foundation Primer
I’ve never been a primer supporter – apart from the Clairns Instant Smooth that I use daily under my eyes before I apply by makeup. But this small tube arrived as a gift with purchase when I received my online David Jones order which included my all time favourite Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation. I love this. I apply this on my nose, chin and forehead only and it really does help my foundation to sit nicely on the skin and doesn’t permit dry patches to come through. I love it!
Benefit They’re Real Lengthening Mascara
Wow – I don’t think I have ever received so many complements about my eyelashes! Every time I wore this mascara someone gave me a complement about them. I really do love the effect, but I have to say – only for special occasions. I really feel that it’s too much for my every day look to the office. But for the day to night office event days and special dinner and weekend events, I will be happy to bring it out.
L’Occitane Shea Ultra Rich Shower Creme
This little gem was part of a L’Occitane Christmas gift pack that I received from one of my work colleagues. I had not tried this before but as you know, I am a fan of the L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil. This shower creme doesn’t disappoint either. A great product for winter – you have a wonderful in shower experience and step out feeling totally hydrated and moisturised. Not too heavily fragranced this is great to have in your shower when you are ready to relax and be pampered before bed.
De Lorenzo Vapour Mist Hair Spray
I’ll say it again. I don’t think this brand gets talked about enough by bloggers and You Tubers. I love this hair spray – everything from the lovely scent to the fact that it has enough hold to get you through a windy winter’s day but enough flexibility to move with you for an 8 hour work day. I can only seem to find it in the large can – a smaller can would be fantastic for travel and for my office draw, but I’ll always have this in my bathroom!
Chanel Coco Noir Perfume
It’s winter so I have returned yet again to my favourite Chanel perfume. I love this divine smell – it makes me feel sophisticated and dressed for work and special occasions. I always get compliments when I wear it. I have my eye on a beautiful Megan Hess Limited Edition print of this perfume as well……
Devestated that this ended. I was slightly ok though because Mr PP and I went to see Matthew Weiner at the Sydney Vivid Festival and he talked about the finale and the series. It was great to hear him first hand in conversation about the show, especially given the fact that the finale had only aired so recently. If you haven’t watched Mad Men, you should definitely buy the box set and commence the binge!
Ok – I’m a bit late to the party on this one, but as they say….better late than never! I haven’t read the books, but this was recommended to me by my Massage Therapist so when I was in bed for 3 days straight with the flu, I thought I would give it a try. And I was not disappointed. I binge watched the first 4 episodes – even though some of this was done with my hands covering my eyes because despite being a grown woman, I really can’t handle violence very well at all! I can’t wait to finish it and am looking forward to the release of the Second Series.
What did you love in June?
