With the change of a season comes a change in favourites. I have noticed that I am using different products, watching new programmes, and finally am getting round to reading again, so I thought I’d round up a summer favourites post.
I cannot remember the last time I started a fiction book. For three years I have been at University and only read academic readings -boring I know. It has felt so good to finally pick up a book and read this summer. I have re-read Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone and intend to read them all again. I have also started Wilde Like Me by Louise Pentland and am absolutely loving it. I would highly recommend Louise’s book to everyone.
I am a proper homebody so spend a great deal of my time watching programmes and films to pass the time. I have been binging on the Vampire Diaries latest season and Game of Thrones in preparation for the new season 7. The Harry Potter films have been watched more than once and I’ve been watching Shrek as I was bored one day and fancied it.
I am still using my trusty Garnier Micellar Cleansing gel wash to rinse my face in the mornings to get rid of my overnight skin care and to wash my makeup brushes when they get too dirty. Recently I have seen bloggers receiving T-ZONE products and I have been absolutely loving this charcoal and bamboo deep cleansing face scrub. I have combination/oily skin and this does wonders for me.
I had a friend stay with me for a long period of time and we drunk so much mango and lychee herbal tea. It is absolutely divine and in the evenings I like to have a hot chocolate. Odd, I know. To have a hot chocolate in the summer is almost unheard of but my bedroom is quite cool and I don’t often have sweet stuff in the house so this cures my cravings.
I have combination/oily skin and during the summer my face of makeup would melt off if I didn’t use L’oreal infallible mattifying primer. I never really felt the need to wearing a primer until after ten minutes of being in the sun my face felt oily -gross I know but relevant to the validness of mentioning this primer. I only apply a tiny bit before smothering my face in makeup and it does wonders for my skin. It makes applying foundation easier and my t-zone area (which is my worst for grossness) doesn’t get oily for ages.
Just last week I found my Nintendo DS hidden away in my room and found my LEGO Harry Potter years 1-4 game and have become OBSESSED! I haven’t been playing this for long but I know I will be playing it for ages. My love for Harry Potter is quite obsessive and finding this game made me incredibly happy. I have also been playing Animal Crossing for a while and it is relaxing for me to play in the evenings before bed.
What have some of your summer favourites been?
