May Monthly roundup

May, in comparison to some of the previous months has been a little on the quiet side! There are a couple of things I can't mention here yet, as they relate to my personal life, and well as much as I want to write about it, lets keep it a secret a little longer, as you never know who might be lurking. I am not pregnant, or anything drastic like that, but, I just want to wait for the timing to be right, before I tell you all! It also will depend on the full results of my op and talks with my husband about our decisions! So lets have a peep at what exciting things I got up to this month!

Health; My journey to referral

Being female isn't an easy job sometimes. While my husband seems to bumble through life with minimal worries regarding looks and health, I'm usually stocking up on skin care to keep my skin looking nice, putting on my newest make up to give my face a new lease of life and showcase a brand new look I've been waiting to try out, or I'm lay in bed in crippling pain crying to myself because nothing I can do will ease it. Welcome to my monthly struggle.

Limited edition dilemmas

I'm doing ok after my surgery, but due to the bad weather last weekend I didn't get to take enough outfit pictures for this weekend, so I decided I want to share with you some thoughts on fashion, beauty and all round limited edition and hard to get hold of items. I don't like to buy into trends too often, but I do enjoy looking at whats new and there are a few things I know I will always get excited about when limited edition collections are released, but it can be quite disheartening too,

Kiehls facial fuel for men moisturiser

Being a beauty blogger, you can imagine that I try a lot of skin care for myself, and while you would think this might mean my husband has a skin care shelf too, believe me he doesn't. I get the odd complaint here and there that he needs a moisturiser, or sometimes he will ask what face wash he should buy instead of using shower gel, I cringe too, but overall he has decent skin. A black head or two once in a while, but other than it being dry and flaky hes pretty much jolly without skin care. So what happened when I forced him to try this moisturiser?

Sleek Lip VIP Walk of Fame

A few months ago I reviewed a purple shade in this range and I wasn't fully keen on it. I decided I wasn't too fussed about trying any more from the range as it just didn't seem to be my cup of tea. I got this in a set at Christmas and had put off properly trying it as I just wasn't sure I wanted to test it out when I have some red lip options I love. I did however give it a fair test and make sure I was able to give an honest opinion which is what it deserves. Especially as red is a classic shade and its hard to find the perfect one!

Benefit Air patrol primer

I am an Urban Decay primer potion girl through and through, I have used that for years and know I adore it and it is a staple. I always look round to see what budget alternatives there are, but never think to go for a high end alternative. When I got a sample of the Benefit air patrol BB cream eyelid primer I was excited to see how it worked compared to my beloved primer potion.

Revlon colorstay normal/dry 110 Ivory

Revlon is a brand that I have used a few things from but don't immediately find myself at when I am in Boots or Superdrug browsing for new products. I'm not sure why, I just seem to gravitate to other stands. Revlon colorstay is an iconic foundation that over the years I have been blogging I have seen so much about and know a lot of people love. When I caved an picked it up towards the end of last year I had no idea if I would like it. I tend to go for lighter coverage foundations but knew having a heavier, full coverage foundation in my collection would be good for event, nights out or just days I want to look a little more put together, so I decided to give it a go, I went for normal/dry as that is my skin type and thought it would best suit my complexion.
