There are so many posts I want to and have tried to make but for now they just aren’t working out, but they will, eventually. So since I’m having mild writers block I thought I’d start somewhere a bit easier, with my first monthly favourites.
I never used to like monthly favourties, I’m not sure why exactly I just thought they were a bit repetitive if all of the favourties were things that had been talked about before. However, I now really enjoy them and really like the brief glimpse they give of lots of different things. So here we go, here are my ‘lifestyle favourties’ for June.
This is more of a last 3 months favourite as I bought it in April and have loved it ever since. After my birthday I decided to treat myself by replacing my ‘make my eyes itchy and is full of chemicals mascara’ for a more natural alternative. I didn’t realise before hunting for natural mascaras that Origins is a more natural brand free from most of the nasties so it was a pleasant surprise to know that there is a natural brand I can buy in store instead of online.
I was using the MaxFactor false lash effect mascara and because of the look it gave which I really loved I was hesitant to try natural mascaras but I hit a winner first go with Origins. It givens the same lengthening and volumising effect as false lash but it doesn’t hurt my eyes (a worrying side effect really). The only thing that took some getting used to is the thicker brush as it’s very easy to look like a panda if your not light handed with it.
I love this lipbalm, this is my 3rd one. This is such a nice flavour, is that the right word? I’m going with flavour, you basically eat it. Although, Feelunique don’t seem to sell it anymore, which makes me sad. That’s all.
Another repurchase is this Green People 24-Hour cream moisturiser. This is a bestseller on Feelunique and I can see why. It not like other moisturisers I’ve had before because it leaves your skins slightly tacky for a couple of seconds afterwards so at first I really wasn’t sure on it but after those initial few seconds it leaves my skins so soft and if I put it on before bed, in the morning I can’t stop touching my face. I may try another moisturiser when this one is run out, something lighter for summer but I probably will come back to this one as it does my skins wonders.
Lastly and the reason I want these to be lifestyle favourites is that my last favourite for June is running. This is me red faced and sweaty after my first 5K (Race For Life) at the end of June. I have never been a runner, always hated it. Even when I was very athletic and swam everyday and did Karate for 6 years I still hated running but since signing up for this race I have really learnt to love running. In June I started running outside instead of on a treadmill and my love for it just blossomed, it’s so much harder but so much better running outside. There will probably be more posts about this since I am planning on running a 10K in October, which is scary exciting.
Those are my June favourites, are any of them some of your favourites too? It was hard for me to just pick a few but more detailed posts will be coming up about some of my other favourites soon. Let me know what you were loving in June.
