May Favourites

I remember saying in April’s favourites post how long that month felt for me. May is quite the opposite however. I can’t remember a thing I did this month, it was all a blur!

 Beauty Favourites
 elf Smudge Pot Cream Eyeshadow in Ain’t That Sweet?
This is a gorgeous light, cream-toned pink. I use it to highlight my eyes, and it doubles as an eyeshadow primer.
Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Lip Rescue in Nude
I was worried that this wasn’t going to be any good since I don’t usually like tinted balms, but I absolutely love this! Not only is the packaging adorable, the formula is perfect.
Marcelle Ultimate Volume Mascara
I’ve been looking for a good cruelty-free mascara, and this one adds lots of length and volume to my lashes. The only complaint I have is the staying power!
elf Long-Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow in Soriee
I’ve been trying out more cream shadows lately, and I absolutely love this one’s shade! It has the most gorgeous shimmer.

For Tea's Sake Pretty in Pink Oolong and Green Tea, David's Tea Raspberry Jam
Other Favourites
This has been my go-to morning tea lately. It’s bright, airy, and has a perfect taste for summer. I wish that you could smell it through your screen!
David’s Tea Raspberry Jam
In contrast to the first tea, this has been the one I’ve been reaching for at night. It’s a soothing chamomile, but with a fruity twist. Since this was limited edition, I picked up a huge tin full of it!
Casablanca 1942
Casablanca (1942)

I can’t believe I haven’t watched this before, it’s such a classic! If you haven’t seen the movie, I’ll give a little synopsis. During WWII, Casablanca, Morocco, was full of refugees from all over Europe trying to get to away from the war. When, in Casablanca, an exiled American freedom-fighter runs into his former love who has been traveling with an underground leader, he is torn on what to do with two letters of transit that recently came into his possession.

Roman Holiday 1953
Roman Holiday (1953)
I absolutely love Audrey Hepburn, so I jumped at the chance to see it when it was shown at a local theater. When a newspaper man takes home what he thinks is a drunk girl instead of turning her into the police, he has no idea that it’s the Princess Ann who has been drugged by her doctor. When he realized the scoop that he’s landed, he follows her around on her adventure in Rome.

  1. Lovely favourites. I especially like the tinted balm and the eye shadows.

    About your other favourites. Both Casablanca and Roman Holiday are two of my favourite films. I love them both so very much. When someone asks me which movie is the best one I've ever seen I usually say Casablanca. I just think it's got everything a film needs. It's so good. And don't even get me started on RH.

    Great post!
    Much love,


  2. the packaging of that lip thing is adorable, i'd probably buy it just for that, although it's good you liked the actual product too! and casablanca and the roman holiday are both such excellent films! i haven't seen either in ages and should perhaps rewatch:-) xx


  3. What a lovely monthly roundup! It's crazy how some months just fly by and others go on more slowly. Have yet to see Roman Holiday, but I really need to watch it, as I absolutely adore Audrey. Charade is one of my all-time favorite films! Those teas also look amazing.
