This May…

Wow that flew by!! I can’t believe it is June already. Before we know it I will be Christmas (sorry not sorry).

It is tradition in the blogging world to give a round up of what you have loved most from that month so I thought I would start my own version!

Events

Two things I especially loved this month and feel need special mention are two events. The first at the beginning of the month was BE:Fit Festival in London. A festival based around health and fitness for women. I won tickets to this event via Dance, Flow Lift and I absolutely loved it. I took part in 3 workout classes, stocked up on supplies and tried lots of yummy food and drink. There were also some talks from inspirational people in the health and fitness industry but unfortunately I did not have time to see one. Amazing event which I highly recommend.

The second event was Beauty Con which I attended with Sarah. It was a lovely day spent meeting inspirational women in the blogging world and included a cheeky first Tarte purchase!

 Beauty

 The main make up item I have loved has been Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel. I have this in Vanilla 02 and it is my go to face product at the moment. It gives light coverage but adds a healthy glow to the skin whilst giving an antioxidant boost and protecting with SPF 30. Perfect for the upcoming summer season.

My favourite and most loved cleanser this month, and most months, is Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish. This is a staple in most bathrooms and is definitely one I will be using for a long time. it leaves my skin so soft and takes off pretty much any make up.

Fashion

I have not purchased any major fashion items in the past month but the one thing I find myself always wearing is the Topshop Leigh Jeans. I have 3 different colours and when it comes to choosing my outfit for the day this is usually the first thing I pick! My black pair feel as soft as leggings and are as comfortable too!! They are just my perfect jeans.

Read

I would love to say I have finished a book this month but I have been finding it hard to finish any(pretty good at starting loads of them though). However, I have been loving reading my many lists of blogs and one that I want to mention is A Minute Away From Snowing. I love the style of Michelle’s blog especially the photography and simplicity of it. She recently did a post on the Norwegian Fjords and if I didn’t already want to go here this would have definitely made me want to add it to my bucket list.

Lifestyle

For the boys Birthday he was given a Chiminea for our garden and we both love it. We recently had a BBQ and finished off the evening with toasted marshmallows via the Chiminea. Perfect for summer evenings.

Fitness

I spend nearly every week at my local Pilates studio either doing an Advanced Pilates Matwork class or Booty Barre so this has to be my May fitness favourite. After my knee operation Pilates really helped me gain my strength and fitness back and I have been hooked ever since. I highly recommend it and think it is extremely beneficial for you. At Everybody Pilates, the studio I attend, you feel really welcome from the beginning and the staff are fantastic. Great teachers and extremely friendly and fun! Exactly what you want! If you are ever in the area you should definitely check them out!

What have your favourite things in May been?
