June 2012 Favourites



Bonjour Universe! 


It's the 30th June today, and that can mean only one thing....


JUNE FAVOURITES DAY! WOOHOOOOO!!!! 


(May be a bit premature for this, but I feel really motivated this morning!) 






Beauty 


YSL Mascara - Here it is again, my new faithful mascara friend. I can't believe it's lasted me so long, and it still makes my lashes look full, voluminous, and luscious!


Simple Hydrating Light Moisturiser - Since I've been back from Canada, I have been participating in a self-made "No make up challenge". No make up wearing to work, to the shops, NOWHERE! Just cleansing and moisturising. My skin is really sensetive, and the Simple range is really kind to skin, and leaves my face feeling soft, supple, and generally lovely! 


Soap & Glory Girligo - Still loving this...It smells just like sweets, and is light and moisturising. This bottle is actually a repurchase, and I'm nearly out already!! 


Soap & Glory Mist You Madly - Slightly more perfume-y than Girligo, but just as yummy smelling (MORE like sweets if anything!) I have been using this as a perfume rather than a body spray, and it really makes me feel like I smell nice, and the staying power is AMAZING! 


Urban Decay Naked Palette - It took me AGES to get a hold if this, but I've been an avid fan ever since. Even though I've been wearing zero make up on a day to day basis, when I'm going out at night, I like to use neutral shades to highlight my tearduct, and create a semi-smokey eye, and the Naked palette has all I need (although Coastal Scents comes in at a close second! 




Media 


Pride & Prejudice - I know that everybody thinks of the Colin Firth version of this when they hear Pride & Prejudice, but I actually prefer the earlier BBC version better. My Mum used to watch the VHS loads when I was younger, and I just became hooked, and now I've rediscovered my love for it again (who doesn't want to find a Mr Darcy?) They haven't brought it out in the UK, but my Mum found it in the Netherlands, and got it for me as a bit if a surprise a few years ago...LOVE LOVE LOVE....Mmmm....Mr Darcy...*swoon* 


Skyrim - Okay...This game I've only played a few times (it's borrowed from a friend), but it is AMAZING!! I love any game to do with fantasy, or a "quest-y" type set up, and Skyrim is great for that....it never ends!!! There are so many things you can do/be/go/see...and the graphics...OMG! I watch it and literally think I'm back in Canada!! 


Deep Space 9 - I have a confession to make.....


I am a bit of a Trekkie...


DS9 more specifically. Out of all the Star Treks they have made, it is above all my favourite. I can watch episodes back to back and not get bored...there are some of the best characters ever in DS9 (Quark being one of my special faves). 


Yes, I am a little bit of a Geek....but I love it!!! 




Fashion


Summer Brights - This season, I've decided to really go for it colour wise...there are so many amazing colours out there that I've never dared to wear before. But I thought now's the perfect time to be brave before the Autumnal tones start filtering in to the high street...


These are some of my favourite (and brightest) pieces. I've not showed too much because two of them are for an upcoming haul I'm going to do, but it gives you an idea of just how bright I've gone! 


I'm very proud of myself!! 


White Cardigan - My Summer staple-to-be. You have seen it before in OOTDs. My white H&M cardigan is going to be perfect if there are chilly Summer evenings, and carries on with the colour theme, as when the weather is nice, I don't like to feel bogged down in black....it makes you feel a bit down I think, wearing black in the lighter months!


Sites & Blogs 


Saloca in Wonderland - If you are a fan of Disney, you really need to check out this blog. Created by one of my friends, it is a hub of Disney knowledge, info and reviews! I've only ever been to Disneyland Paris, but reading Saloca's blog makes me want to book the next flight over to the USA! 


SprinkleofGlitter - A lot of you may know Louise...not only a blogger, she has a YouTube channel too - click here! I think her posts and videos are always so much fun to watch, and she nearly always has me in fits of laughter! If you don't know about her, I think you need to head into the SprinkleofGlitter world! 


So, there you are, my June Favourites. I hope you get something from them....even just a bit more of an insight into the inner workings of the Ginger that is me! 


On another note...I've been thinking of doing a "Get to Know Ginger" post....what do you think?!


Happy Saturday Everybody!!!
