June Favourites

Here we are with another ridiculously late monthly favourites... one day I'll get better at this, I promise. Until then here is a bunch of things that I was loving during the month of June.

The first couple of items are both skincare related. As June marked the beginning of summer I desperately wanted to try and get my act together and take better care of my skin, both on my face and body.

I started using the Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Facial Wash in the mornings to help refresh my skin and help wake me up. I really like this product because it actually feel like it works. The little beads in the face wash really makes it feel like its getting deep into your skin and properly getting all the dirt out. It's one of those skincare products that leaves your skin feeling fresh and kind of tingling after you use it. A little really goes a long way with this product which is great because it means it's long lasting, it's also extremely cost effective so it won't break the bank when it does come to replacing it. I love when high street skincare product results match those of high end products. The scent of this is Pink Grapefruit so I'm sure you can imagine how fantastic it smells, but it is not at all overpowering, just the perfect amount of freshness. The face wash itself is also pink which just matches my aesthetic perfectly, although that is not the reason that I purchased it (kind of.)

The next skincare item I've been loving is one for the body and it's Body Shop's Glazed Apple Moisturiser. As you can probably guess from the jazzy packaging, this is one of the Body Shops Christmas products so I don't know how readily available this is year round. I have always been a huge fan of Body Shop's body butters, they are so moisturising and so creamy. The apple smell is absolutely amazing, I could actually just sit and smell it for hours. This product is perfect for summer as it is quick drying, does an amazing job of getting rid of dry skin and is so soothing to freshly shaved legs. I got mine last December, obvs, and I've still got over half left, a little definitely goes a long way. I would 100% recommend trying these body butters, they have so many scents to choose from for whatever takes your fancy.

Did you guys know I'd dyed my hair? I don't really know I've mentioned it enough... jokes, I know I mention it too much. This will be the last time for a while I swear, but I wanted to mention my favourite hair dye brand at the moment. Bleach London has been one of my most trusted hair dye brands over the last couple of years. I really love the variety of colours that they offer and the pastel shades that the dyes deliver. They aren't the most long lasting on their own but when mixed with other dyes they add amazing tones and layers and look really lovely on the hair. I really love that they now offer shampoos and conditioners that contain colour that help top up hair between dyes, which I've not yet found offered with other dyes.

Now onto the random bits

I've been saying that I've wanted to learn a new language for ages, and rather than pick a nice sensible one like French or Spanish I've decided to learn Japanese. I've always been obsessed with Japanese culture and I've always thought the Japanese language sounds amazing & looks so cool. As I'm sure you can imagine it's not the easiest language to learn. I've been using the app Duolingo which is a really good stress free way to go about learning a new language. There are so many different languages to choose from, so whichever takes your pick. It's completely free to use which is good if you're looking to try out a new language without properly committing. There are a bunch of different levels, starting form absolute beginner to advanced so you can make sure you're doing at the right pace for you. It's so easy to do on your commute or during a spare 5 or 10 minutes and I've noticed a vast improvement already.

Last up, we're on to music. I recently stepped out of my comfort zone and into the world of K-pop, after hearing it mentioned so much. As you guys know, I am a massive fan girl so it's safe to say I got quite obsessed and went in quite deep. There are so many different groups that I'm loving and so many songs I'm obsessed with and I'm hopefully going to do a post delving into this more soon. But you know when you gain a new obsession and it's always the first thing that you discovered that becomes your ultimate obsession? Or is that just me? But anyway, my first introduction was (unsurprisingly) through BTS.

I am absolutely loving BTS at the moment, they are such a talented group. I absolutely adore their sound I think all their songs are so multilayered and they all are amazing for creating different moods and atmosphere's. I love their mixture of singing and rap, it all flows amazingly well. All their songs are so catchy, like obviously I can't speak Korean but I sing along to their songs, mostly just making noises but it counts, their songs are so catchy and so memorable. It also baffles me how 7 people can be so in sync and be so good at dancing. Their dances were actually one of the first things that drew me to them, the choreography is amazing and I love the concepts behind them. The Blood, Sweat & Tears music video & dance is so aesthetically pleasing to watch, I love the Boy in Luv & War of Hormone dances, both are incredibly cool. As I mentioned, I'm obsessed so obviously I've binge watched loads of their performances, behind the scenes and vlogs and they are all absolutely hilarious, they crack me up and they just seem an all around good group of people. It also helps that they are nice to look at, they are all really attractive, like REALLY attractive. I'm just an all around massive fan at the moment. I would 100% recommend checking them out if you are looking to get into or are intrigued by K-pop, or even if you are just looking for some new music to listen to.

As always it's been a random bunch of things I've been loving, but are you surprised? I'll 100% try to get my next favourites up promptly but you can probably expect it to appear around October...joking...but also probably not.
