I'm loving... #1

Recently I haven't been doing favourites posts as much, simply because I'm at home all the time so I don't wear makeup as much and I'm not discovering anything new. There are still a few things every now and then that I want to share though so I thought I'd stop doing the typical monthly favourites and just share a few bits and bobs whenever I feel like it. It takes the pressure off of putting up a favourites post every month as well which is nice, although this is pressure I create myself!



Last month Wrappz kindly sent me this phone case which I created myself. I've seen so many people with phone cases with lots of pictures on them of family and friends recently, that was my initial plan until I saw some of the pre-made designs. I was instantly drawn to this one as it has some of my favourite colours in it, I've never seen a design like this either. I never used to be one to love a phone case but I'm really glad I picked this design, I've had several people comment on it as well! I thought £20 (+ £2.50 delivery) was a little expensive at first but the quality of this is amazing. The case goes on and off of your phone easily and it is really sturdy, I've dropped my phone a few times since using it and it has definitely helped save it from smashing! If you are looking to spend a little more on a phonecase in return for great quality then I'd definitely head to Wrappz.

Also Wrappz have kindly given me a code for you all to use which means you'll get a free personalised skin for your phone, all you have to do is pay for delivery! The code: freeskin 



The weather in the UK has been amazing recently, a little too amazing at times though. We've been having hot days and nights that are filled with thunder and lightening! I bought these ASOS shorts a little while ago as an option for those rare warm days, I didn't expect to wear them as much as I have done though. They are labelled as Culottes but as you can see they are short ones, not the difficult to style long ones. They are so incredibly comfortable and they are high waisted with a stretchy waist (good for all those BBQs!). I love the print as well, the mix of bright colours and an aztec design is a really good pairing. I think they are definitely my favourite Summer clothing piece right now! If you aren't tall then no worries because ASOS do these shorts in a normal length as well.



I'm a big lover of chocolate so when Makeup Revolution sent me a surprise package in the post I was so happy to see this inside! I haven't used it enough to do a full review yet but my first impressions are really good. This is the sister brand to Makeup Revolution, it's still a bargain brand but the packaging is very modern and will appeal to younger people a lot I think! This particular palette is filled with lots of neutral shades, I like that there is a lot of variety. If you only tend to stick to neutral colors then there is everything that you could possibly need in this palette! There's also a mixture of mattes and shimmers which I like as I enjoy using both finishes equally nowadays. I don't want to give too much away as I will do a full review but the formula, pigmentation and the overall quality of the eyeshadows are getting a thumbs up from me so far!

That's it this time around, I didn't want to include too many things, I much prefer writing more about a few items than only a few lines each for about 10 different things! 

What are you loving at the moment? Have you discovered anything new?

Thanks for reading,
Shona x
