 Freebie May is upon us and what a freebie month it's been. Feelunique are my new best friends and you'll see why on this post.

 First up is the Benefit they're real mascara. I got this after taking part in The Sunday Times style 2014 beauty awards sponsored by Feelunique. I voted and completely forgot about it, I didn't expect to win and once through my door it was a lovely surprise and even more so when I saw it was full-size.

Lusting Over Boohoo

 Lately I've been watching a whole lot of Youtube and with Youtube comes lots of fabulous hauls, those hauls have included Boohoo and I'm loving what they have to offer this season and right into Summer.

Image source:
Just look at those gorgeous prints. 

L-R: Megan neon aztec swing dress. This dress as got so much going on but it works beautifully, the neon aztec pattens work well with no clashing and the neon shades give it a real Summer buzz. This floaty number is both feminine with a real edge to it - definitely one for that Summer wardrobe at only £15 here. Pheobe neon paisley strappy cross front play suit. This play suit is something to shout about from the rooftops this Summer with it's trendy print and the burst of neon colour, it's girly and looks light in fabric for those really hot days - £12 here. Saffron rafia wedge sandal. I love these so much, for me personally who completely struggles with an heel from time to time these are the perfect wedge, flat and midi in style they are the perfect day to night shoe and bang on trend, big buckle great print - £25 here.

Hey, Big Spender! #3

It was absolutely necessary that I created a 'Hey, Big Spender' #3 post - I've bought so much stuff lately that I feel like a crazy spending lady. So, firstly I got my hands on a few bits and pieces from B&M store, I love B&M for a good bargain and I found some good bargains throughout the store - I was actually good this time and only bought what I needed. You can see other posts from my 'Hey, Big Spender' series here, here

Image taken from Goodreads.
At time of purchase Enigma was free from Amazon for Kindle.

When Kate Harris moved to Long Beach California she didn't realize her life would change forever. Little did she know she'd become so obsessed with the hunky guy next door, the same guy that happens to save her life after almost making her drown at the beach. All Kate wants is a normal life, to enjoy college, meet the guy of her dreams and make friends, but her feelings are to deep and she's puzzled by the mystery of this man who is trying his best to keep away from her. But her journey ends when she discovers her neighbour is none other then Jack Jones, who is hiding a dark secret that makes him anything but normal.

Father's Day Gift Guide | Part 1

 Hey guys, I hope you're all well? Today I'm going to help you get ready for Father's day with my Father's day gift guide. My gift guide is complete with various gifts that offers something for everyone, depending on their Dads personality - be that with a sense of humour or a love of fashion. There's something to meet everyone's budget, from a few pounds to a few hundred. Father's day is exactly a month today, June 15th.

The Bluebeards Revenge are FHM grooming award winners of 2013 and in my eyes the manly version of Soap & Glory - they are full of witty humour and are not designed for girls or people with bum fluff. Bluebeard Revenge will have you looking tip top, groomed to perfection and smelling gorgeous - did I also mention manlier?

Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter

Can you believe that the Makeup Revolution are the first brand that I've ever tried an highlighter from? Yep, me neither. I've always been somewhat wary of the highlighter and never took the courage of wearing it for a day or even applying it for a matter of fact. When I got my hands on Peach Lights I went online and did some research on how best to apply it, and I've never looked back - to get my hands on Golden Lights also was a bonus.

My Makeup Revolution order ended up being somewhat of a nightmare - I ordered from Superdrug. I got my hands on a few bits and pieces from my wishlist.

The Folly Boutique | Review

You may or may not have seen The Folly Boutique post, if not you can take a look here - to give you a little inside into what The Folly Boutique is, they sell and rent our gorgeous designer jewellery. I was fortunate enough to get my hands on not one but two pieces of their jewellery to rent a couple of weekends ago. I went through the website and picked out a few favourite pieces, the necklace instantly caught my eye and they offered to send me the matching ring too.

The #bloggersdoitbetter third post is all about brights vs neutrals, with Summer on it's way and the end of Spring in sight I've been more pulled towards Summer brights, which include lots of neon and pretty pastel shades. I decided to do a favourites post for my brights vs neutrals, everything above is what I've been loving recently - except the nail polish, which I do love but not been using much of.

If you've seen my 'Hey, Big Spender!' series you'll of seen I've had quite a big spend recently. My first post can be seen here and my second is on it's way very soon. I was going to do this in a three part series but decided this 'new buy' was way to lovely to wait, (third post will be made excluding this beauty, this deserved a post by it's self) and already out of stock at River Island just in case you wanted to go ahead and pick it up yourself from ASOS - which is where I ordered mine.

Blue Frog Gym Towel

I like to keep fit and exercise when I have the time too, though. it's a struggle finding the time to hit the gym and I tend to workout from home whether that's a DVD, exercise hoop or stepper, I also enjoy going on long walks/hikes. Of course with exercise, hard work and determination to get fit and keep fit you're going to get a little sweaty. Introducing Blue Frog, the gym towel of all gym towels convenient and microfibre making it the perfect gym companion.

Enjoying Nature

Pendle Hill.
 This weekend (26-27th of May) my in laws came down and we took a couple of trips out. You will have seen previous posts about these places but my in laws have never been so I thought it would be lovely to enjoy the fresh air, revisit these places and show the in laws some fabulous country side surrounding where I am from. On Saturday we took a trip to Pendle Hill, Barley (the second time in a week) and on the Sunday we again went to Bolton Abbey near skiptop and to the Yorkshire Dales ice cream parlour - though you've seen these areas before on my blog, I again took some great photos and thought I'd share our weekend, in photos with you.
