May favourites

For once in my life, I haven’t looked back on the month and f**ked hated my life because I want to include all the products in my monthly favourites. I’ve actually loved few products this month, but I’ve loved them a lot. In amongst my favourites include the most gorgeous, unique, perfect pair of boots I own – which I was kindly sent by Chockers, thanks Chockers you little charmers, you… – which also haven’t left my feet since I received them. Alongside said life changing boots – erm, yes, a pair of shoes can totally be life changing – are my white ASOS jeans which I’ve equally worn to death, so I thought… why not mix things up a bit and make a ‘favourites’/’favourite items in an OOTD’/’thoughts on favourite things’ type post.

… And that was obviously such a riveting idea that you’re all just desperate to carry on reading…

[insert sarcastic/”I know you think I’m a knob tit twat right now but please just humour me, read the post and pretend you’re not totally bored and actually enjoyed it anyway?” emoji here]

You could also add in a thumbs up emoji but I thought it might be too much. It’s too much…

Chockers Sienna Miller boots

Chockers Sienna boots* (sold out – boo! – gorgeous red version here) – So, these are the boots that I totally fan-girled over in my introduction and I think you might be able to see why. They are a cowboy style boot (which the inner Sienna Miller/Kate Moss in me loves) with a stunning mixture of prints and textures. MockCroc, velour/suede with gorgeous gold hardware on the zips, heels and toe cap. They’re incredibly comfortable which my poor blistered feet – I am a girl that suffers for her art i.e uncomfortable shoes because they make the outfit photo’s on point look so much better – are very grateful for. They’re just a unique addition to my collection, which for the girl that literally owns all the black boots in the world (boots, are my thing FYI) that’s seriously saying something.
White ASOS jeansI haven’t got a specific photo to show said white jeans as not only can you see them above, but it’s also impossible to get a flattering photo. Unless you’re a Victoria’s Secret model, or Cheryl Fernakfnvakn Vergkfnvaejvnanvr or Michelle Keegan, or… you get the gist. However, despite looking like a tree trunk/McDonald’s Ambassador, I have really been enjoying styling these up, and wearing them on a warmer day for a fresher, more summery feel. Whilst I love these ASOS ones, I am very open to flattering white jean recommendations…
If such a thing exists.
Stella McCartney Stella perfume
Stella McCartney Stella perfume
Stella McCartney Stella – I mentioned this product in my Spring essentials/chic things/whatever the hell I actually named the post, blog post here… so feel free to pop over to check out an in-depth, absolutely awful fragrance description there. (Jesus Christ, I’m serious selling that option to you aren’t I? #FullTimeBloggerTwat) In short, it’s a beautiful floral, fresh, slightly sweet – but not sickly – citrusy scent that is just perfect for the warmer months. It’s subtle, it’s fresh… and I’ve never come across a single person who hasn’t really liked this.
If you are one of them however, it would be lovely if you could just keep that to yourself and refrain from making me look like a complete dick twat on my blog. Please and thank you 😉
Essie Peach Daiquiri
Essie Peach Daiquiri
Essie Peach Daiquiri – Oh Essie, you’ve done it again. Finding a nail polish that I love enough to repaint repeatedly over twice in a row when the time comes – i.e when they’re chipped to f**k high heaven/look rougher than a witches tit sandpaper – is very rare, so Essie did so good with this one. It’s a peachy pink, coral, slightly red toned colour – adjectives are not my strong point, don’t judge – that I’ve already reviewed here in case you’re after more swatches. It’s very pretty, lasts at least a week without chipping and is perfect for Spring/Summer. 
Rodial Glamstick Bite

Rodial Glamstick in Bite* – Including this lipstick in my May favourites is a little naughty of me (I know, living life on the edge big time) as I literally received this a matter of days before putting the post together. However I couldn’t not include it because this lipstick was just love at first use. Of course, a full review is on it’s way next week, but ladies… this lipstick is so nourishing, it smells oh my god incredible, the colour is literally my ideal lipstick. In fact, scrap that, the entire lipstick is my ideal lipstick. It’s love. Full on “I clearly haven’t got my priorities in check yet hence why I’m able to profess love for a lipstick, but I will do soon” love.

So this brings what is technically my May Favourites – with a special fan girl to my favourite boots and some beauty bits – to an end. I actually really enjoyed putting this post together so maybe it’ll be a new format to my favourites posts in the future.
As for me, May has potentially been the most stressful month of my life. [insert violin sound effect here] A mixture of incredible, unbelievable – but for me, because I am a huge over thinker and neurotic bitch – however slightly stressful/totally nerve-wracking blog opportunities, alongside putting in all the hours in the world in posts/collaborations/general bloggy stuff etc. plus health issues… I have kinda’ been left a broken mess. The work/life balance is yet to even be discovered let alone be made more even so if any of you have any tips for not getting stressed/letting things get too much/generally how not to be a highly strung psychopath… those would be greatly appreciated 🙂
Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post.


  1. The essie nail polish is beautiful – definitely a spring colour!!
    As for work/life balance, my only tip is to be selfish. I know you worry that you'll miss a day of posting etc but that's ok, we are human and we understand. Even if you posted once a week/month, I'd still be here reading because you write good content and you are a fabulous person. I don't expect you to post every day so ease up on the pressure you're putting on yourself. You come first, always. If you are not well (physically/mentally), then your blog would suffer and you'd be cursing yourself even more then. Take some time for yourself, chill and refresh 🙂 xxx

    I agree with Samantha, being selfish is definitely key. Take some time just for yourself, to do whatever you want not what you think you should do, I often find once I've taken a break, I feel like being productive anyway. Putting yourself in a calmer place would easily help balance both aspects! Also, those boots are gorgeous! :)X

  3. ovation spas says:

    You look absolutely beautiful, lovely post! 🙂

  4. Those boots are so cool – I like the design on them


  5. I know what you mean about stress. Yoga helps with that if you're into that kind of thing. Those boots are absolutely gorgeous!

  7. Those boots! Good lordy they are beautiful! I also love that Essie nail polish – so perfect for the summer! Hope you're feeling a little less stressed now lovely, you are such a hard worker and I totally admire you for that! For me when I need to destress I go for a nice long walk and it always helps. xxxx

  13. Beautiful products and i love your outfit so much!!! <3 Cute boots!

    Have a great day!


  14. I adore those boots and those jeans… I love white denim!! You look great!!
    Now, put a smile on your face and stop worrying… worrying causes wrinkles and stress and blech… none of that, now! Besides… what's all the hard work going to get you? Look to the future… because the difficulties now will pay off, so stay bright. And one more thing… it's good to stay busy, it can be super tough being overly busy, but think of how bored you would be with nothing to do!??

    Chin up, and feel better!! Be sure you get your rest, throw in a few workouts, and eat relatively healthy… everything else will fall into place!

  18. Again a lovely post! I love the boots and I'm quite sad that they are sold out. Maybe in the A/W season they will come back in black. I also really like white jeans, but I know they would not look flattering on me. I will just wear my black jeans instead haha!

    Oh my gosh Elle those boots are so pretty 🙂 And you look incredible in white jeans. I'd love to try them myself, but I'm a bit too tubs haha! Your posts make me laugh so much. That Essie Lipstick is a cute colour and the name literally makes me want an alcoholic beverage :p

  39. Glam O'Clock says:

    I always enjoy reading our posts! Peach Daiquiri is one of my favourite nail polish for summer! I asked you on twitter about the perfect white jeans (understand flattering) before reading this post but now that I did, I realise we have the same first world's problem. Hopefully we will find the ones that don't make you look like a Mc Do ambassador and we will finally be able to sleep tight again 🙂 xx
