May Favourites

Today's post is my May favourites, just a run down of all the beauty products, fashion, music, websites and youtube channels that I'd been loving this month. Enjoy!

Nude Nail Polish
Generally I dislike nude anything because it either makes me look naked (nude dresses are not good) or seriously ill, I've never worn a nude lip in public, but nude polish is fabulous. Nude nails are the epitome of chic for me, I think that brights do have their place but nude is just understated and classy.

Health Unlocked
I've been told by my doctor that I am approaching becoming obese as my BMI is 29. This came as a shock to me as I've been going to the gym quite regularly over the past 2 months so I was a little disheartened to discover this news. I decided that I would try something else to help me achieve a healthier weight and found is a forum ran by the NHS and supports a huge range of illnesses from Cystic Fibrosis to Obesity. I joined the healthy eating and weight loss forums and have found them really helpful, some of the ladies on their have been really supportive and given me so great tips such as following the NHS 12 Week Weight Loss Programme which I am currently on week 2 and finding myself eating much less than usual.

Willam's Beatdown
This is so not for everyone but I love drag artists, I'm not really sure why but I think it is the idea of transition and transformation which appeals to me. Willam looks so different in drag compared to in real life as a man but is still as funny and harsh. The premise of Willam's Beatdown is that he takes the piss out of youtubers in a comedic way whilst swearing like a sailor. I think Willam rocks the geek girl look so well and I'm a little jealous that I will never look as good as he does!

Family Time
Since finishing my degree I've found more time to spend with my family, especially my nephews who I love dearly! Abel is just 8 months old but is starting to babble and making his first hints at wanting to crawl while Joseph, who is 5, is becoming a grown up and even stayed with me at my student house which he loved. I've included some pictures so you can see how absolutely adorable they both are!

I have more pictures of them both on my instagram

Yellow Accessories
It was my birthday at the beginning of the month and my boyfriend's mum kindly bought me this beautiful yellow Betty Jackson Black Celine style bag. It is deceptively big! Yellow is going to be a massive trend over the summer, pair it with nautical stripes and anything navy. 

Arabella - Arctic Monkeys
This is perfect summer chilled tune. I love the imagery behind the lyrics and the sort of American rock anthem style guitar and drums throughout. To quote what I put on instagram the other day:
"This song makes me wish I was riding along the Las Vegas desert in a red beat up Cadillac instead of being on a bus in the miserable British weather"
Very nice. 

What have you been loving this month?

Did you know that in the film Toy Story, Sid's hallway carpet is the same design as the hallway carpet in The Shining? That's well creepy.

Heeeeeeeeeeeeres Jonny!
