What I've been up to and June Favourites





It's a little late but here are my June favourites.
I've been taking part in the Finish 4 by 4th July project and I chose these Clinique Chubby Sticks in Woppin' Watermelon and Super Strawberry to use up. I reviewed them last summer and although I found them comfortable to wear I did feel they were overpriced. However I stopped using Vaseline on my lips because I suspected they might be causing spots around my lips so I've been reaching for these and I absolutely love them! I also love Make Up Revolution The One Fluid Blusher in Desire it's a lovely Snow White natural blush it's just a little messy to use as I'm still experimenting with which brushes to use to apply it. I've been using Bourjois Volume 1 second mascara which took a little getting used to but it's a good all rounder. The full review will be up soon. I've also been wearing Ghost Eclipse which smells just like summer in a bottle-fresh sweet and fruity. I've just realised my favourites looks like an empties post, lol!

I've also been enjoying BBC's The Syndicate, a drama about a group of people who win the lottery and how it affects them. In this series the staff at a crumbling Hazelwood Manor estate win the lottery and suddenly end up with more money than the family who own the estate. Lady Hazelwood wants to sell the estate and live elsewhere but Lord Hazelwood sees it as his heritage and loves the place and refuses to move. Then he finds out some the paintings in the house have been replaced with forgeries and that the originals have been sold secretly behind his back. He suspects his son in law Spencer. Add to that one of the staff, a girl called Amy has gone missing and is presumed dead. The Syndicate always has a great cast and is consistently a high quality British drama. I'm impressed with Lenny Henry's performance , I haven't seen him playing a straight role before and he plays Godfrey who has Asperger's syndrome, obsessed with numbers, hates change and not socially aware, very sensitively. If you're not in the UK look it up on iTunes.

I've also been watching Channel 4's Amazing Spaces Shed of The Year, where people enter the shed that they've built. It doesn't sound exciting but it's amazing to see what people have built- an owl shaped hut on the beach, a shed-boat that sails down the river and a posh tree house among others.

I'm so happy that Pretty Little Liars is back, especially at the same time as it airs in the U.S. Hopefully we will finally get some answers over who exactly A or Charles Dilaurentis actually is and why they are targeting high school friends Aria, Hanna, Emily, Spencer and Alison. The time jump of 3-4 years in the future will also be interesting to watch! I think all the actors will be happy to be playing characters nearer their own age as well as they have been playing high school teenagers for the last 6 years!

I also went to see The London Russian Ballet School perform locally which was fantastic. I'm currently enjoying the heat wave here in the UK- Summer's here yay!

  1. I have the Clinique Chubby Stick and find it doesn't keep my lips moisturized. It is pretty for a natural looking red pout, which is the only kind of red I wear these days. The Makeup Revolution Fluid Blushers are tricky to use...which is why they're still sitting in the drawer, unused since first swatching them, haha.
