May Favourites

May was a pretty busy month; Bradley turned 11, James had a birthday too. Bradley also had his SAT exams at school, which we're looking forward to seeing how he did! And finally work was finished on our new house and we're now starting to move our stuff in. 

So, onto my Favourites of May...


Skincare Product of the Month...
Olay is one of my favourite skincare brands ever. I used to use their moisturisers and CC creams religiously, but then I decide to try other stuff and forget to go back. But I picked up Olay Total Effects 7 in One Moisturiser & Serum Duo (£14.99/Boots) and was soon reminded why I love Olay so much. It feels so comfortable on my skin and works well as a primer for make up!

Haircare Product of the Month...
Before having my hair cut last week, I wore my hair wavy quite a lot as it was in that awkward in between stage. So VO5 Utimate Hold Weather Resistant Hairspray (£3.29/Boots) was a firm favourite this month. I do love VO5 products, they're spot on nowadays and it's just a perfect hairspray, that brushes out and doesn't leave any stickiness.

MakeUp Product of the Month...
I always think I've found my hold grail mascara, until I try another ;) I love lots of different mascaras on different days, depending on the look I'm going for. I've been loving MAC Haute & Naughty Too Black Lash (£19.00) this month, it lets you choose between naturally defined or powerfully dramatic, and the formula is lovely!

Bath/Body Product of the Month...
I love a creamy body wash, so No7 Blissful Body Wash (£9.50/Boots) is a beauty! It smells lovely and it lathers up perfectly.

Fragrance of the Month...
I bought James some Paul Smith Sunshine (£25.50/Boots) aftershave and it just smells amazing, it lingers around the house all morning and it just smells lush!

Baby Product of the Month...
Although he doesn't play with it often as he much prefers to move around himself, I love his VTech First Steps Baby Walker (£24.99/Toys R Us) as it's really helped him work on his balance so that he's now able to walk around the furniture and with our hands and I believe he'll take his first steady steps very soon!!

Read of the Month...
Bradley and I have still been reading The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole by Sue Townsend, after we went to see the theatre play. It's still nice that at age 11 he still wants reading time with me! :)

TV of the Month...
I've loved the 16 & Pregnant and Teen Mom series on MTV over the years so was looking forward to the start of Teen Mom OG, with the original cast. That reminds me, I've a couple of episodes on OnDemand I need to catch up with!! ;)

How was your May?
