This Has Been: May




First of May #ootd - I've been really loving Tanya Burr's Little Duck shade - I have an exclusive discount code for the entire range of Victoria's Secret fragrance mists (link here) - I've fallen in love with Mr Paolo Nutini all over again - If you enjoy reading my blog I would really appreciate a nomination for Best New Beauty Blog in the Cosmo Blog Awards - New movies (review here) - Look who was watching me when I was taking blog photographs that day hehe - I was incredibly lucky again and won Charley's fabulous giveaway - I finally jumped aboard the Breaking Bad bandwagon - This really is the prettiest shimmer polish I've ever tried - Beauty UK definitely use the best packaging - Mid-week chippy treat - A very rare good hair day - I still can't bring myself to open the lovely packaging on Tanya Burr's lipglosses - My Drugstore Beauty Haul giveaway with Cohorted (A HUGE CONGRATULATIONS TO HANNAH WHO WON!!) - Viktor & Rolf's Bon Bon fragrance is definitely telling me I need to buy it soon - Such a nice surprise finding Olivia from What Olivia Did (link here) in the New Look magazine inside the Stylist magazine - A lovely present from Paul Mitchell - Cheeky NARS purchase - Sunny day #ootd - A spot of Saturday baking - Bank holiday MAC browsing - I rediscovered Strawberry Fancies and have become obsessed with them once again - I did quite a bit of baking this bank holiday weekend but who doesn't love home-made shortbread? - I love that it's light now during my evening walks - My new favourite perfume (review here) - New bedding - A little Topshop order to end the month

May is always one of my favourite months of the year, mostly thanks to the two bank holiday weekends. What a difference having a Monday off work makes! It looks like I spent my month like I spend most months; shopping. Hehe. I also feel like I've spent most of this month watching Breaking Bad. Why did it take me this long to get around to watching it? I've just started season 4 and whilst I'm excited to see how it all ends, I will be sad when it ends. What TV show should I get hooked on next? Preferably one that I can catch up with on Netflix. If you have any suggestions be sure to let me know.

What was your May like? Please feel free to send me your instagram links and I'll be sure to check them out.

  3. I love these little catch up posts too! It's nice to actually sit down and think about what you've been up to. I've just cancelled my netflix subscription. I've signed up to Amazon Prime, and I'm currently watching The OC. It's such a blast from the past! I love it! x

    1. I do have the first couple of seasons of The OC on DVD so I think I now know what I'll be watching when I finish Breaking Bad! :) I'm definitely looking forward to that kind of blast from the past!

  4. Sounds like a lovely month, I always love May too! On Netflix I would definitely recommend watching House if you haven't already - I think it's only on the American version though. Otherwise, I quite like Arrested Development too!x

    1. I've seen the odd episode of House and I've always really enjoyed them but just never got around to watching from the very beginning. I have had so many people recommend Arrested Development to me so I think I definitely need to check that out soon! :)
