June 2019 Favourites

Who's ready for another late favourites post? I haven't done one of these for a while because I haven't really been wearing makeup or using anything particularly exciting. I mean I still haven't been using anything revolutionary and I've only worn a little bit of makeup but I finally had enough products I've enjoyed using to make a post. July's should hopefully be more exciting.

Read in June 2019 Part 2

As mentioned in Part 1 I managed to read a fair few books this month. The month finished on a bit of a downer though with 2 not so great books. I was particularly disappointed by the Karin Slaughter one because I normally absolutely adore her books. I always find when I read a couple of duds that I lose my motivation. Here's hoping I can keep the momentum going in July.

Read in June 2019 Part 1

June was an incredible reading month for me. I read 7 books. That's more than I've read in a month for a very long time. Here's hoping I catch up soon so that I can smash my Goodreads challenge. As usual, I've split this into 2 parts so that it isn't horrendously long.

New in Nivea Skin Care

Nivea have recently brought out some new skincare products and I was kindly sent some of them to try. I've really been getting into my skincare recently and my favourite part of an evening is cleansing my face, putting on a face mask and enjoying a good cuppa and a book. The products I was sent are perfect for that. They include biodegradable face wipes, a cleanser/scrub, face mask and moisturiser.

Fragrance With Secret Scent Box

I adore perfume. I'm not one of these people that has a signature scent either. I have many on the go and just pick whichever one I fancy on the day. There are too many gorgeous scents out there to just stick to one. However, I can be a bit picky so the Secret Scent Box is just a perfect invention.

A black box contains 3 tiny bottles of perfume, there are 3 information cards next to the box and a square card that says hello beautiful

Read In May 2019 Part 2

So this post is definitely later than I anticipated. If anyone has seen my motivation can they please send it back my way. On the plus side, my read in June posts is going to be big. I think I'm up to 7 books so far. Anyway, this is part 2 of May and you can check out Part 1 here. Is there anything better than finding a new author with an addictive series?

Abelini Diamond Rings

If you know me then you know that I absolutely adore jewellery. No outfit is complete without a pair of hoops and a handful of rings. I am always wearing as much jewellery as I possibly can. I mean I'm just sat at home writing today and I am currently wearing 2 ankle chains, 3 bracelets, 10 rings, 6 earrings, a nose ring and a necklace. I honestly feel naked without it. Abelini recently got in touch with me and asked if I wanted to find something to suit my style from their collection and who would I be if I turned down more jewellery. 

My hand has a square diamond ring on my middle finger and a smaller round diamond band on my little finger. I have on chrome pointed false nails. There is a black box with Abelini written on it in the left hand corner. There are leaves along the top and roses and a pink blanket on the bottom
