Monthly Round-up | May Favourites

I honestly can not believe it is June already! This month has flown by, and being busy with exams (a burden many of us bear), has meant I have been in need of some pampering. So onto this months favourites....

Album of the Month: As of late, I have constantly been listening to Fall Out Boys latest album, American Beauty/ American Psycho. Not only do I love the title, but the entire album is just so good! My most played songs has to be 'Uma Therman', 'Favourite Record' and 'Centuries'.

Song of the Month: Aston Merrygold - Get Stupid. My favourite boy-in-blue is back! And among with him, he has bought a whole new edge to his look as well as created a musical hybrid of sound that is just completely suited to my taste. Think: Bruno Mars, James Brown, Justin Timerberlake and Olly Murs all mixed into one.

Box-set of the Month: Revenge - I'm very nearly on the last episode of the entire series and it is just so good! I am truly going to be sad when it ends. *sobs*

Now onto beauty and skincare products... 
This month I've been a big fan of fragrance body lotions, and the one I've been reaching for the most is the Ghost fragrance Lotion! Its quite a soft scent that just spruces up my mornings a little, especially when I'm off on a day out. It really lifts my mood, and is not too overwhelming in its fragrance.

With Vaseline being a classic brand, with this product they have yet again achieved a staple skincare item. I love this! The consistency is really thick, which is what you would expect from a gel/ oil product. After application, my skin felt instantly smooth, hydrated and thoroughly nourished. This feeling lasted day and all night, which is so great for a drugstore product. Perfect for when your skin feels dehydrated and is need of a bit of TLC. It has some fragrance in it, which may be off-putting for some, but I really love it and its not too overpowering either.

This Collection mascara is a new buy for me, one that I have been using constantly since I got it. Because it is so affordable, I am quite generous with the application, making it great for everyday use. I'm not too sure about that e'no clumps' claim, that may be because I happy so much on, but it is one of the best cheaper mascaras that I have tried (Boy, have I tried a LOT).

My mum is the one who actually bought this Stila Angel Light Whitening Powder Foundation refill, and ever since, I have been obsessed! Its great for a bit of light coverage that evens out squinting and has ingredients that cause it to really illuminate your skin and leave it glowing.  The texture is smooth and creamy, and blends like a dream. It covers up any imperfections and lasts all day without touch-ups. Not usually being a fan of powder foundation, this product has truly won me over. The lightweight formula gives a complete flawless finish, and the SPF 26 is just a bonus!

This Carmex Ultra Moisturising Lip Balm never seems to fail me. Kept in my handbag, a quick application leaves my lips feeling soft for hours. It doesn't dry white, like a few lip balms I've tried, and what makes it even better is that it has SPF which is so so important even for your lips!

What have been your go-to products this month?
