Loving Lately | May Favourites

I feel like I've been completely slacking on blogging lately. I usually post every other day, but that hasn't been the case as of late and it's really bothering me. I kind of want to blame it on the weather because it's been so gloomy lately to the point that it's a complete mood killer. I'm hoping it starts to be more Summer-y very soon so I could get back on the ball. Anyways, I know I don't normally do monthly favourites on my blog, but there have been a bunch of things getting a ton of love from me lately that I wanted to share. 

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer | I've been utterly obsessed with this bronzer ever since it arrived at my house in a little Sephora box. I usually wait to photograph all my new stuff before using it, but I couldn't help but throw this on the moment I opened the compact. It's a shimmery bronzer, though not too intense. I was never a fan of shimmery bronzers, however this changed my mind completely. It is just stunning. 

ColourPop Super Shock Shadow in Elixir | The last time I picked up one of ColourPop's Super Shock Shadows, I wasn't the biggest fan. When I saw the swatch of this on another blog, I made a vow to pick it up the next time I put in an order. This is such a beautiful orange shade that is extremely buttery and smooth. I've been using it nonstop. 

Laneige Two Tone Lipstick in Cashmere Nude* | A few posts ago, I shared my experience at the Laneige Two Tone Lipstick launch (see it here). My favourite out of the eight shades is Cashmere Nude. It's a perfect everyday shade. I'd love to talk about it more, but I have a post about them coming up very soon! 

MAC Lipstick in Velvet Teddy | When I don't feel like rocking the ombre lip, this is the one I reach for. The hype around this is so real. I'm not surprised that it's a cult favourite. I always struggle with finding nudes that match my skin tone (and that don't make me look dead). This is pretty much the perfect nude lipstick for me, so I've been obsessed! 

Naruko Jing Cheng Face Renewal Miracle Essence* | After loving Naruko's Rose & Botanic Series and Tea Tree Series, I was extremely happy to try out this essence which just happens to be one of their top sellers. I've only been using this for a few weeks, but I already notice a difference in my skin. My skin has been a lot smoother and brighter, so it's become a regular in my skincare routine. Also, the packaging looks and feels so luxe - I love it! 

Binge Watching On Netflix | I've been falling behind on blogging lately and I think this may be to blame. But can you really blame me? There are so many good shows on there. I've watched or been watching a few over the past month. I finished 13 Reasons Why and Riverdale, which I thought were great. After finishing those, I wanted to find a random show so I clicked on Jane The Virgin. I wasn't expecting to like it, but it's hilarious and has a crazy story line. I've been enjoying it so much that I'm already at the end of the third season after starting it a week ago. Kinda embarrassing
