Musicals, glitter and a day at Ascot | June Favourites

Well wasn’t June a great month! I don’t know about anyone else but I seemed to have a lot of exciting things going on and with this nice weather we’ve been having it’s just been a lovely few weeks. With that being said I’ve been a bit selective with my favourites this month and although there isn’t much to mention, the things that are in this post I am 100% obsessed with.

I think I’ve mentioned the Stila Magnificent Metals Liquid Eye Shadow before, and for good reason. It’s literally like magic in a bottle and it’s perfect for when you have a special occasion that could do with a bit of extra sparkle. I have Gold Goddess, a twinkly bright gold that is seriously versatile. I’ve used this with my Naked Heat palette, Naked 3 and a standard brown smokey eye – it’s worked for all of them. No mess as it’s in a liquid form and really easy to build up for a super sparkly lid. Such a great product I could recommend this endlessly.

This month I’ve fallen back in love with the Revlon Colorstay Foundation, specifically in the shade Sand Beige. I’ve been fake tanning a fair bit over the past few weeks so I’ve needed a darker foundation shade so my face matches the my body. This formula is amazing for me. Semi matte so it stays put throughout the day but doesn’t dry your skin out. Lots of coverage but it can be blended out to something a little lighter if you want. Just an all round good egg that I need to not neglect in the future.

Now, over the past month I have become obsessed with musicals, like seriously obsessed. I’ve always been a fan of some but it’s started taking over my actual life. I listen to soundtracks all the time (we’ll get onto those in a minute) and can’t stop watching musical YouTubers. Amy Lovatt and Katherine Steele have been playing on repeat for the last month. They both do videos on musicals, songs, actual shows, etc and I cannot get enough. If you want something easy watching then their videos will be just the thing to pass four hours of your life (I’ve been on some serious video binges recently). It’s through these two that I’ve discovered my new music obsessions – Mean Girls the Musical and Dear Evan Hanson. Yes you saw right, Mean Girls the Musical is an actual thing and the soundtrack is amazing. I think if you’re a fan of the movie then you will love this! I love all the songs but my favourites are Revenge Party, Someone Gets Hurt and Sexy. Easy listening and great to sing-a-long to in the car. Dear Evan Hanson has an equally sing-a-long-ish soundtrack. I’m not 100% sure what the plot is but that doesn’t matter when listening to the soundtrack. Again, easy listening, some songs more jolly than others but they all make you fell good. Anybody have a map and Good for you are my top picks.

A shout out has to go to the events I’ve had on this month. A weekend trip for my friend’s birthday followed by the best day ever at Royal Ascot! It seems to be becoming an annual thing and I’m so there for it – what’s better than a picnic, prosecco and betting with friends? Nothing, that’s what.
