Monthly Favourites | May Music

Wait, we're almost half way through the year already? I don't remember time going by that quickly, do you? Well, I guess that means we're closer to Christmas again. I'm already excited, time to start scouring Pinterest for cute DIY's and baking. Now I'm getting a bit ahead of myself, let's just get through the other five months before the big day. Today, I'm going to be doing my May favourites but in a different way, I haven't really been loving a lot of beauty, skincare etc. favourites this month seeing as I injured myself so I didn't see the point in dolling myself up to sit in my front room. However, music has been my life saver this month so I'm going to do a monthly favourites of music for the month of May. Let's get into it.

I also have one last thing to share with you. It's kind of a song that I've been loving but kind of not. The Hillywood Show on YouTube, who make parodies brought out a new parody the other day for Supernatural and I absolutely love it. I keep rewatching it! I'd love if you check it out, the video is below!

Monthly Favourites | April

It feels like only five minutes ago that I was sitting around the tree opening presents on Christmas morning with my family and now we're a third of the way through this year. April has been a month of many loves and as I always do I've decided to share them you.



Love Me Like You Do Cover My first favourite this month that I obviously cannot photograph is a cover on YouTube. Gabriella also known to some as velvetgh0st to some upload a cover of Love Me Like You Do onto her YouTube channel about two weeks ago and I have absolutely most definitely fallen in love with it. The day it came out I listened to it about fifty times and have been repeatedly listening to it for the rest of this month. I love Gabby's voice, it's amazing and it really suited the song. Gabby got her friend Hobby in on it with a bit of singing and guitar playing was an amazing idea and worked so. Also, Gabby and Hobby are just too cute! I definitely recommend that you watch this video! You're going to love it! The video's below! 


JeansNow when I was younger unless I was wearing a dress or skirt I'd wear jeans constantly. I couldn't even bring myself to wear leggings but last year I branched out and tried a pair and basically lived in them. However, I dusted off my pair of black ones from the bottom of my draw and slipped them on. I've fallen back in love with wearing them. At the minute due to the nice whether this is going to sound weird but my ankles are getting very hot, weird I know, anyway I've been loving rolling them up at the ends a few times making me look a bit more style savy. I definitely love wearing my jeans when it isn't warm enough to wear a dress out to a meal so I wear my jeans with a nice top and a pair of heels.


Nail Polishes
If you read my February favourites you'll know that I wore fake nails constantly that month but I decided enough was enough. I grew my nails out and took proper care of them during March. In April it got to the stage where I was happy to paint them and I went to town! Every few days, when one colour would start to chip, I'd either paint them clear to keep them in the best condition that I could then sometimes I'd paint them in one colour. I've been loving the pastel colours this month. I've been wearing blue's, purple's and other colours. I also have just purchased a white and have been wearing that quite a bit. Most of the colours I've been wearing have been from Barry M, I definitely recommend the brand for their nail polishes. I think now it's getting to them Spring/Summer months I've decided to start painting my nails.



Flower Crowns Flower crowns have been a must this month. I recently found one that I picked up last year and have been wearing it every time that I can. It's just a simple one with white flowers but I really think that it brings together any outfit. I think that I've really stepped out my comfort zone with it because I wear glasses I never think that I can wear certain things but I decided to brave it and wear the flower crown and it's made me realize that I can wear what non-glasses wearers wear. I think that these are going to be a staple this Summer for me with natural wavy hair.



Simple Spotless Triple Action Face Wash
This Simple Spotless Skin Triple Action Face Wash has been a life saver this month. My face decided to collect spots this month which obviously I was so grateful for, no sarcasm at all. Anyway, I needed a new face wash anyway so I thought I'd give this one a go. I'd heard a few of my favourite smaller YouTubers talk about this product and they've raved about it so this I thought that it must be good. Was I right? Yes. This product is amazing, it dries out your spots and reduces them to almost nothing which I am indeed very grateful for. Simple is an absolutely amazing brand for skincare and I definitely recommend that you pick up not only this product but any other Simple product.



Hairspray I have to give a shoutout to Hairspray this month, no not the hair product but the film version of the musical. I watched the film at the start of the month and then have constantly been listening to the album. It's just so amazing! I definitely have a favourite couple obviously; Penny and Seaweed. I absolutely love, love, love them! I love Penny's style and if I was with Seaweed I swear I'd go weak at the knees every time I saw him. Literally. As much as I love Zac Efron, Seaweed might just beat him. If you haven't watched Hairspray I think you need to.

Instagram
Now I'm a big lover of that little app called Instagram but this month I've especially been loving it. I really like just posting pictures and liking pictures on it. I just really have been loving it. There's not really much more to say on that topic apart from one thing. Shameless self promo time if you want to follow me click here, I'd love you to follow me!


Blogging Community
Now my last favourite of the month has been the blogging community! I recently got in touch with a blogger called Antonella, check her blog out here and go comment on one of her blog posts 'Chloe Marie from http://mycrazybeautyjourney.blogspot.com/ loves you and can't wait to reveal what we're working on.' Ooooo.....secrets! Anyway, we've been emailing for a while and we came to a decision to create a community for smaller bloggers to all become one little family and I've absolutely loved it. I love my girlies from the smaller blogging world and can't wait to work with lots of them!

What have you been loving this month? Let me know.
