Monthly Favourites: June 2015

08:00

June has been a bit of a funny month.

Some days it’s been sunny and warm and then the next minute, dull and rainy.

Do you know that wet, muggy type of weather, the type that brings all the daddy long legs into your house? – They have been the worst days!

However, it is definitely summer and I am really looking forward to the next few months.


As it is the end of the month, I thought I’d jot down a few of my favourite things. I’m also going to do a little jazzy video showcasing them in a little more detail, so keep an eye out for that! 

Anyway, for now, here are my favourite things from the month of June 2015!

Half and Half Hairstyle


I LOVE IT! Plus, it’s really simple. I don’t have too much time in the morning and this takes five minutes, seriously. 

Plus, with a tricky fringe this is great as it gets all the hair off my face, but leaves some hair down to soften the look. 

How To:

1.       Straighten your hair (optional).

I like doing this to make the final look a little sleeker. Plus, if you have a lot of hair or long hair, sometimes it is easier to manage when straightened.

2.       Take a large section of hair.

I like to use my ears as a guide. Take the top section of hair from here and tie it on the very top of your head. Include any fringe that you may have and keep as much hair away from your face as possible.

3.       If you wish, add bobby pins to the top section to keep flyaways or your fringe at bay.

Sometimes, it is nice to push your hair forward a little to add a bit of volume.

4.       Ensure your hair looks good at this point.

Ensure the two sections are separate with none of the second half of your hair tangled in the top pony.

5.       Heat a curling wand and curl a few sections of hair in the bottom layer of hair to add a bit of texture.

6.       Do the same to the hair tied on top of your head. Add a few curls, but not too many.

7.      
To complete the look.

Add a bow or embellishment if you wish and spray with hairspray to set everything into place.



And there you have it - my favourite hairstyle for the summery month of June.

Mac’s Huggable Lip Colour



Is huggable even a word?!

I bought this lipstick for my friend's wedding. It was great on the day and I am using it more and more as we creep into the warm summer months.
I chose the colour Flamin' Lips - A deep creamy red that has a slight shimmer and a semi opaque look on the lips. 
I love it and think that it is perfect for summer. Not too heavy, it wears well and the warm undertones will look great with a tan (...I can dream).

Kimonos



I'm really hoping that kimonos never, ever go out of style. They are perfect for festivals and as a summer cover up to hide any sunburn and protect your skin. 
Whether they are flower print, lace or full of tassels kimonos are my favourite item of clothing this month.

Netflix – My Ever Growing List 

I don't think I am ever going to get fed up of Netflix! 
It is forever updating and there are more and more new episodes every week for great TV series such as PLL and OITNB. Plus I feel 'in the know' and can use acronyms in sentences - ooh fancy.

I think that is about it this month. Not too many favourites, but I didn't want to add something for the sake of it. 

Anyhoo, until next month!
