Monthly Favourites: May...

May has been a bit of a busy month for me - I've just not stopped! Between work, socialising, events and even a couple of weekends away, it has been a little hectic. No wonder I have been posting much more often this month.

This month I have a mixture of favourites for you and for once there is no food in sight.

Teacups_and_Buttondrops_Foam_roller

Foam Roller:

This has been my lifesaver this month - so many kinks have been ironed out with it. I have got into a little routine of using it as soon as I come home from the gym. Sometimes I have been having a quick roll in the morning before work too.

Teacups_and_Buttondrops_Girl_on_the_train


This book is gripping from the very beginning and a recommended read. I've not quite finished it yet but so far it has been such an enjoyable read which is why I have included it in this month's favourite.



This eye shadow is available as part of Benefit's World Famous Neutrals palette and also available as an individual pot. This month I have been using it either by itself or as a base for other eyeshadows. Either way, it looks fabulous!



Using toner is an essential part of my daily skincare routine. This toner by Lush is one of my favourites as it not only contains tea tree but it also is extremely refreshing.

What have you been loving this month?

Life: This Week #034...



001) This week I started to read the much-hyped 'Girl on the Train' by Paula Hawkins. And to be honest, it is as good as people say it is. It is absolutely gripping and I'm reading it much quicker than usual. Review coming soon.

002) Speaking of books, I also finished 'Always the Bridesmaid' by Lindsey Kelk. I absolutely adore Lindsey's books as they're typical chick lits and absolutely hilarious. I'll have a review of this book soon as I've given it to someone else to read.

003) As someone who preps food for the week, I am always looking for easy things to prep (as I'm lazy and don't have much time). One of my favourites things to prepare are sausages and this week I finally managed to get my hands on some Heck Foods Chicken Sausages which are pretty tasty.

Beauty: Make-up Mix #002...

It's that time again where I mix up my make-up...and so here is what I have been using:..

Teacups_and_Buttondrops_Make_up_mix2

Teacups_and_Buttondrops_Make_up_Mix2



My base products are pretty much the same as last time (I am a creature of habit after all) apart from my foundation which I have switched to Bourjois City Radiance Foundation (Review coming soon). I have also added in Soap & Glory's Hocus Focus illuminator and I have been mixing this into my foundation for a little bit of extra glow.

Eye-wise I have completely changed course and gone for my Tartelette palette and also a new mascara by Revlon which was included in my Glossybox.

Blush-wise, I am currently going for the Au Natural look (aka lazy and didn't look through my blush drawer).
