June’s Favourites

This month’s favourites are a real mix of a lovely pub we found; some makeup and a real obsession/problem I have with a particular food.

For our friend’s 30th birthday we visited the Lake District which is such a beautiful place anyway but whilst wandering the streets of Bowness on Lake Windermere we found this perfect pub. The Angel on Bowness is positioned on a hill slightly away from the village but close enough to get great views with easy access. We had some cold drinks and chilled out in the sun in the gorgeous gardens. Highly recommend.


Next is a new lipstick/stain I picked up. I have a lot of this type of lipstick as I like them to last all day so can compare. This is from the ‘Wet & Wild’ brand which has just come to the UK. Previously I had to buy it in bulk when we visited the US.

You can also order it from Amazon below:



Finally my new obsession is anchovies! How I didn’t like previously I have no idea. They are so salty and lose their fishyness when cooked so act like seasoning. I’ve now taken to buying tin and putting them on any pizza we happen to have or make. If you fancy making one from scratch I’d recommend my blog below.


And yes that is pineapple!


Dr Botanicals

May’s beauty finds

I don’t normally cover a lot of Health and Beauty items but in the interests of sharing a balanced set of lifestyle hints and tips and the fact I’ve discovered not only the best beauty finds in May but I they are of the year!

Firstly I’d highly recommend the Dr Botanicals pomegranate sleeping mask. I think I got this in a monthly beauty box but you seem to be able to get it on Amazon with a Dr Botanicals gift set (link below). If you put this on before you go to bed you wake up with lovely soft and clear skin. I used to walk up with slight lines from the pillow and that’s gone away on 2019, excellent! When this runs out I’m going to buying the larger version. I’ve also recommended to my sister and she fed back exactly the same results.

The next items is Caudalie face spray. I found this by watching some beauty vloggers on You Tube and they were using it as a makeup setting spray like Mac fix pro. I do this but also if you just need a little pick me in the day to really refresh your skin it makes such an incredible difference. It also smells amazing!

Happy trying…





P.S. I’ll try and do the same in June as I’ve lot of good beauty items already purchased … eek.
