Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream Review

Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream

I’m off on holiday next week, and I’m never a fan of full foundation in the heat, but recently, I’ve been suffering with quite a few breakouts so didn’t want to look too spotty on the beach – not the best look! I went on a search for a decent BB cream that could help make my skin look more even and at least attempt to cover those nasty little blemishes. I decided to go for Maybelline Dream Pure BB cream as it boasted being able to blur imperfections, whilst improving the quality of skin and it contains SPF. Sounded brilliant, and just what I was after.


Monu Professional Skincare Hydrating Moisturiser Review

Monu Professional Skincare Hydrating Moisturiser

I’ve tried out a few Monu Professional Skincare products before, and I have never been disappointed with any aspect of it. I received this sample in my June Glossybox and it is one of the only products I felt matched the summer theme of the box. A hydrating moisturiser with a SPF is certainly a must have for summer!

When I’m looking at reviewing skincare products, I always try to relate my experiences with the product description on the packaging. This bottle says: “Formulated to prevent sun damage and premature ageing. Containing soft focus technology, it blurs imperfections and corrects skin tone.”

Sounds promising!

Figs & Rouge Tinted Lip Balm Review - Cherry Blossom

Figs & Rouge Tinted Lip Balm Cherry Blossom
This Figs & Rouge Tinted Lip Balm in Cherry Blossom was one of the items in my June Glossybox, and one of the only ones I wasn’t disappointed in receiving!

Figs & Rouge’s new range of tinted lip balms come in 3 lovely flavours. Mocha Orange, which has a nude colour, Coco Rose, which is a light pink and the one I am reviewing today; Cherry Blossom, which is a deeper pink.

June Glossybox

June Glossybox
I always look forward to receiving my Glossybox, especially as the theme is announced a week or so before, so I always spend my waiting time trying to guess the type of products that I will receive. This month’s theme is ‘Summer Looks’. In my mind, I was expecting some bright colours or products I can take on holiday.

I’m always a fan of Glossybox. I have never had a complaint about a single box, but this time I am slightly disappointed.

Wednesday Wishlist #5 - Boohoo

Boohoo wish list

Ahhh window shopping time. I haven't been shopping for so long since I'm saving all my pennies for my holiday next month, so all this 'window' shopping is helping soothe my urges... Ahh well, the holiday budget can come out soon so I can buy some new clothes ready for my trip! In the meantime, this week, I have been loving Boohoo and some of their new arrivals:

Quest to the perfect beach body #5 - Fitness Blender

Fitness blender
Working out on a budget is harder than you think! Going on a run, or committing yourself to programmes like 30 day squat challenge seem like a good idea, but actually, you might not be working the areas you want to perfect.

So you look into a gym membership, and upon realising they are asking an arm and a leg every month, plus extra for sign up fees and then the classes you wanted to join aren’t even included so you have to pay extra for them anyway, you push that idea to the back burner. 

Father's Day Gift Inspiration

Quest to the perfect beach body #4 - June challenge

Perfect body beach

So 30 day squat challenge is now complete, along with a few of my own little adjustments to the scheme. If you have been keeping up with this series, then you will know that so far I am managing to lose the inches round my stomach and build them up round my bum!

If you need to catch up with the quest to the perfect beach body challenge, then click here!

My new measurements are:

Stomach: 33 inches
Bum: 35 inches

I've already improved on my original measurements, so I want to keep going and make sure I am toned and looking lovely! My holiday is booked for the 4th of July, so that gives me the whole of June to get working out!

I have devised myself a little workout plan to follow in June, and I hope you will join me! It's pretty intense, but i am really motivated at the moment! Let's see how I feel in a couple of weeks time!

Here is the workout plan:
