Monthly Favourites | May '14

Hello Lovelies!
I've got into the habit of totally forgetting about writing a monthly favourites post so it would come to the 5th day of the new month and I would have already read maybe 8 posts about this and then it dawns on me that I need to write mine, then its time to go on a mad dash round my room to find the things that I have been loving or using a lot that month. And some months it can be hard to gather products and items because some times you don't know what you have been using a lot of when your put on the spot. But I am on the ball this month, go me! I don't have any make up favourites this month which is surprising but I have tried to not use much make up this month to give my skin a break and to be honest, music and TV has appealed to me more this month (probably because I am the queen of being lazy!).

So the first favourite I am going to talk about is a band called Imagine Dragons. I love their music (I am currently listening to them as I am writing this post) and their lyrics are on point. Demons, Radioactive, Its Time, On Top Of The World; all their songs are worth a listen!

Following on with music, a song that I can't stop listening too is Coldplay - Magic which is just beautiful. I love Coldplay and I am so excited about their new album, their music is perfect to listen to when you are relaxing in the sun.

For my next favourite, I have using my heated rollers a lot this month so they deserve a mention on here now. Mine are by Babyliss and I love the way they make my hair look. I first wanted some heated rollers because of Dizzybrunette3 as she always mentions her rollers and has posted YouTube videos of her using them. Corrie is my hair envy so I thought if I got the heated rollers my hair would look like her, obviously her hair is much longer than mine but the rollers still make my hair looks really healthy and big and bouncy.

My next favourite is a TV show that I am obsessed with. I started watching it last series when it was a 3 parter and I caught It during the second episode, and after that I was addicted. When the first series ended I was pretty upset and I had no idea that they were going to make a second series so I made sure that I set that to record! The TV show is In The Flesh and it is a must see!

Sorry my post is so short but I don't really have any other things I've been loving this month and the best things come in small packages! That might just be something my mum used to say to be because I was so small... but it still applies!
Do you guys like any of these things too? :)

Battle of the hand creams

Hello Lovelies!

Today I am bringing you a 'battle off' of my favourite and least favourite hand creams. Some I have bought myself while others I have got in monthly Birchboxes (*) so have a read and if you have tried any of the hand creams, let me know your thoughts on them. For each hand cream I've broke them down into three categories that I'll talk about (smell, feel, work?) and then I've rated them all out of 5. So lets get started!

Soap and Glory's Hand Food

Smell - this hand cream isn't the best smelling hand cream unlike the rest of the soap and glory range which smells amazing, but it still isn't an unpleasant smell.

Feel - it is quite greasy so I wouldn't put it on just before you need to actually use your hands as you wont be able to open a bottle of water straight after.

Work? - it is a good hand cream and does leave your hands feeling smooth after.


Nivea smooth nourishing hand cream

Smell - this cream smells a lot like holiday to me as it reminds me of sun tan lotion and pool water, which makes me happy and makes me feel like I'm on holiday (and makes me want to go on holiday even more!)

Feel - this has a thick consistency which applies really well and a little goes a long way.

Work? - this leaves my hands feeling super smooth and nourished for a long time after I've applied it.


Lavera hand cream* (Organic)

Smell - this hand cream smells very fruity and citrus(y) which can really wake you up if you use it first thing in the morning.

Feel - this cream has a very thin consistency so it is easy to spread it around your hands and as you start to rub it into your skin and work it in, the scent does come out more.

Work? - this is a good hand cream and does a good job of keeping my hands soft.


Molton brown replenishing hand cream*

Smell - this again smells very fruity and citrus(y) like the Lavera hand cream.

Feel - this has a thick consistency and feels very luxurious on your hands.

Work? - this hand cream leaves my hand feeling really soft for a good while.


I think its obvious who the clear winner is in this battle, I continuously use the Nivea hand cream every day and keep it in my bag so that I can top up my hands when they are starting to feel dry. The tube that it comes in is a good size so it has lasted me ages and I still have so much left to use, it is just an all round winner for me.

Have you guys used any of these creams? Which is your favourite? :)
