I don’t usually write posts like this but I thought it might be good for me to look back over the things which made me happy in June.

Black handbag

Oliver won a prize in a raffle, and the sweetheart decided to bring this gorgeous bag home for me rather than choosing a prize for himself.  I don’t tend to use black handbags during summer so I will save it until September.  I love the chain straps and the zip detailing.

Nails Inc Sparkle Like A Unicorn Nail Polish Duo Kit

Nail polish AND unicorns?  Two of my favourite things!  The packaging for these two nail polishes is beautiful and the colours look amazing.  I’ve only used one of the polishes so far but I will be making a full review of the kit soon.  Hint: it’s really great.

The Body Shop Pinita Colada Body Sorbet

I’d be surprised if you hadn’t heard of this range, it seems so popular amongst bloggers at the moment.  The smell is so gorgeous and as this is a sorbet, not a lotion, the texture feels so lovely and refreshing on my skin.  It’s really different to anything else I’ve tried, and it absorbs into my skin so well, which is fab when you’re in a hurry after a shower.

Nescafe Gold White Chocolate Mocha

I can’t ever resist white chocolate drinks, so I had to try these when I saw they were on offer.  It doesn’t taste quite like I was expecting, not white chocolatey enough would you believe!  However it is nice and I’ve been enjoying it of an afternoon instead of tea.  I might not re-buy it though, as a treat and a one-off it’s been nice.

Versace Bright Crystal

I received this perfume for Christmas, but I’m finding that it’s during the warmer months that I’m really enjoying using it.  Plus the pink bottle is really cute and ideal for putting in your handbag.  I find the scent to be fresh and a whiff puts a spring in my step.

Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick Nude 45

My mum gave this to me because she didn’t like it, nudes aren’t really her thing.  However, I find it to be a lovely pink shade which is great for everyday use, and I have been wearing it a lot.  To start with I thought I looked washed out because I’m pale anyway, but I think that’s mostly because I’m more used to brighter lipsticks.

What products have you been loving lately?

  • I’ve never heard of a sorbet body lotion before, I imagine it feels quite cooling and refreshing. Oh I miss getting to paint my nails, darn hospitality work!
    I had a tester of a 100% Pure facial serum with my last order and I love it. I think I’m going to have to buy the full size version at some point because it feels so light and moisturising.

  • I can’t stand having bare nails! The sorbet texture is just so lovely, it’s the nicest product I’ve ever put on my legs. Ooh that sounds nice!

  • Food & Baker

    These are nice posts to look back on! Loving the bag, can’t beat a. Lack bag in my eyes. That sorbet body lotion sounds intriguing!

  • How kind of Oliver to pick out that handbag in the raffle! It certainly is a lovely bag, I’m sure you’ll enjoy using it once summer is over! I’ve heard lots about the pina colada Body Shop range, I bet it smells incredible!!

  • Oooh, the body sorbet sounds so nice! It’s annoying because my skin is so dry that I tend to use boring things like E45 and Nivea lotion. I should try something more exciting!

  • The consistency of this might be really lovely on dry skin!

  • I know, how sweet of him and he has great taste! It does smell like summer in a bottle.

  • They are gorgeous colours. The bag will be my constant arm candy! xx

  • The black bag is as classic as the little black dress! It’s such a gorgeous sorbet.

  • Kate

    All those products look amazing! That bag is gorgeous! Haven’t had a white chocolate drink in ages!! I had a white hot chocolate with some sort of syrup around last Christmas time. Great post!

  • Kate

    Oh I LOVE a good favourites post! Bless Oliver, bringing you back that gorgeous bag! That coffee sounds divine, I’m tempted to purchase I’m the same as you though; if it’s proclaiming to be white chocolate flavoured then it must be FULL of white chocolate 😉

  • I love trying white chocolate drinks, although they’re never white chocolatey enough for me!

  • I know, he did well didn’t he! Yes it has to be as white chocolatey as a bar of white chocolate!

  • Aimée Julia Cottle

    How sweet of Olly! Where did you get the Nails Inc set from? I need it! I also really need to try the new Body Shop range. It sounds delicious. Great faves! x http://www.aimeeraindropwrites.co.uk x

  • Gwennan Rees

    i LOVE that handbag! What a cracking prize and what a sweetheart for choosing that for you not something for himself!

  • It really was so sweet, I know he could have chosen a bottle of wine or gin!
