❤ Spring Favourites (March - May) ❤

I didn't do an OOTD today because my outfit wasn't too exciting.
Don't fret, I'll be back to my challenge tomorrow!

So I meant to do a March, April and May favourites, 
all separately at the correct times. 
And that never happened. #typical
I decided to put all of my favourites into one post and name them my Spring Favourites. So this is what you got. 

Let's jump into this!

Beauty 


Make Up: 
Clarins Blush Prodige in 02 Soft Peach
I lpve tis blush! It is a cute sweet colour and is perfect to wear everyday! I wore it tons throughout Spring. And the Clarins packaging is super sophisticated. 

The POREfessional by Benefit
OMG!!!
I am in love with this ever since my (super awesome ninja... no just kidding, she's not a ninja) Mum brought the full bottle when she was at the airport. This is AMAZING! I use it before I apply my make up as a primer and it does minimise pores which is awesome! It has such a nice formula and slides on smoothly, and it's just, WOW. It's now my beauty essential. The one on show is the sample because I ran out of my first POREfessional.

Cosmic Kisses Lip Crayon (free gift from TOTP magazine)
This lip crayon is, like, the first I've ever got (I think) and it's pretty slick even though it's one of those free (usually crappy) gifts from British magazines. It's a dark hot pink and kinda looks like a lipstick when applied and I have been using it a lot throughout the three months.

High Beam by Benefit
This is fab! This is a smaller version of the bottle because it came with my Sugarlicious set I received for Christmas. I love this because it brightens up my face when I apply it to my temples, cheeks, bridge of my nose and forehead. 

The Rocket Volume Mascara
This baby is so fine. So fine.
It's glidable and goes on lashes so cleanly, leaving a glossy finish. You don't need to apply many coats as it gives out massive volume. It gives the illusion of longer lashes and is a beautiful product.

Natural Collection Pressed Powder
This is super handy. I've been wanting a powder for a while as I heard it's great for setting make up for a more natural look. I absolutely love this powder! As you can see, I've been using it quite a lot; it's almost gone!

Cala Powder Brush
I've been using this brush for the powder above and is similar to my Eco tools brush but has worse quality, since it was way cheaper! But the Cala brush is still alright to use.




World Famous Neutrals Palette by Benefit
I got this for my birthday and I love it! It's wonderful as the tips and tricks show you how to create looks for daytime and playtime. The soft, flattering colours makes getting beautiful eyes effortless. 
I will do a Birthday Haul soon, though it should've been up more than a month ago...


Fragrance:
So...? Kiss Me
This is a nice and refreshing scent, and I used it for P.E often in school. 

Kylie Minogue Darling
Birthday present again, from my friend. It has a unique and interesting smell that is quite strong but sweet, if that makes any sense. Great for parties.

Lacoste Touch of Pink
Another birthday present? Yup. From my bro. This came with a body lotion and together they smell super good. So girly and fun.


Skincare:
Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Exfoliating Face Scrub
I love this! It makes my skin feel super soft and I use it once a week so I'm always a wee bit excited 'cos it feels like a treat to my skin (if you know what I mean). My skin is quite normal (not too dry or oily, but does sometimes leans over to the dry category) so I don't hugely need this, but it is important to exfoliate, so I've been loving this.

Triple Performing Facial Emulsion by Benefit
Got this for my birthday (what a surprise ) and I've been using it most days in May before applying make up. It super soothing and the plus to this moisturiser is that it has SPF 15.

Lacoste Touch of Pink Body Lotion
After a shower, this body cream is heaven. It's super relaxing but also gets you excited and perky for the day. It goes superbly well with the perfume.

Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturiser
I bought this moisturiser not knowing what to expect but trust me it works wonders! After rubbing it into my skin it feels all tingly like it's working. My skin always feels hydrated after moisturising with this baby.





Hair Products:
Herbal Essences Uplifting Volume Shampoo and Conditioner
Theses are definitely my new favourite shampoo and conditioner! Together they have have such a gorgeous scent and really makes my hair feel soft and tangle-free.

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Fruity & Cheeky Cherry
As you might know by now, I'm quite the fan of Batiste, and this scent is super sweet and I just had to buy it for Spring. The dry shampoos work very well; they awaken my hair, making it smell fresh on a non'shower day. A beauty essential (I've probably said that multiple times about this product.)

BOWS! Left Side Claire's, Right Side Penney's
Who doesn't think bows are cute an adorable!? They are so on trend and I'm super obsessed after Bethany made her video.

Random


Books/Magazines:
KISS magazines (April - June Issues)
Ahhh. Good ol' KISS. You brighten up my months.

Top of the Pops ( issue)
Top of the Pops is best for its celebrity gossip. Great for reading with friends.

Bliss magazine (April 2013 Issue)
This issue has such good fashion is it; all of the spring trends from black whites to feminine clothing. Bliss always has great celeb interviews too.

Dork Diaries: Dear Dork by Rachel Rennee Russell
I love this series. Their such funny and easy reads with cute illustrations.

Love Lucie by Marita Conlon McKenna
I fell in love with this book. I connected with the characters so deeply. If you're Irish and around 10 - 14, you have to read this! It's super relatable and moving.

Leave it to Eva by Judi Curtin
I love Judi Curtin, and the third book of Eva's series was not a disappointment! Full of interesting drama and mysteries that leaves you wanting to find out what happens next!

Movie:
Iron Man 3
This movie is a must see! Robert Downey Jr. is super hilarious and the action is amazingly tense.

Snack:
Cupcakes (March)
I baked a lot throughout March due to giving up sweets for Lent, mmmmm...

Easter Eggs (April)
Obvs, who doesn't eat Easter eggs at Easter?

Cake (My Birthday in May)
I got this awesome biscuit cake for my b-day. It was delish, full stop.
