Katherine Penney Chic May Favourites Monthly Beauty Accessories

Happy 1st of June everyone! It's basically summer and I can't wait, the weather just a has a bit of catching up to do! Feels like I haven't done a monthly favourites in ages as I missed last month due to a lack of camera. So I'm excited about the things that I have to share with you today. 

Leopard Print Slip-ons
Firstly I need to talk about my new shoes as they have been the most exciting thing I've bought this month. I had seen a lot of this slip-on style shoe and I really loved them and then I started to see some leopard print ones on other blogs and Pinterest and I just thought they were so cool. I'm hardly adventurous when it comes to fashion, although being a fashion student now that is something that I am trying to change! But I have loved putting outfits together with my new shoes this month. They look great with black jeans and a plain white shirt or top. I also wore them with a little beige skirt and a denim shirt earlier in the month. So despite what my boyfriend thinks about these (he hates them!) I absolutely love my new shoes! 

Nivea Hydra Care Lip Balm
While I do like Vaseline I find that after a while it get very drying. This lip balm from Nivea is one that I always come back to as it is just so moisturising and lasts such a long time. I can put it on before bed and still feel a bit of it there when I wake up in the morning! It's such a great one just to carry around in your handbag and it's a stick which means it's more hygienic on the go. Also I can't remember exactly but I am sure it is a bargain! 

Jojoba Oil by Naissance
I started using this oil after experiencing very dry nails and doing a bit of research online for solutions. I got this bottle from Amazon for about £5 and I've had it for nearly two months and only used about a quarter. I like to just massage this into my cuticles whenever I remember, usually a few times during the day and then before bed. I've also started using this occasionally on my skin if it looks dry or dull. It's so moisturising and really sinks deep into the skin leaving it feeling really smooth. 

Rimmel Extra Super Last Mascara
One of my friends from my course always has such amazing lashes so I finally asked her what mascara she uses thinking it would be an expensive one. So when she said it was an old, cheap one from Rimmel that they don't advertise any I was so excited! I picked this up at the beginning of the month and wasn't concentrating and got the brown/black one! But as I'd already opened it I started using it anyway and I love how natural it looks. You do have to scrap a bit of the excess back into the tube, like with most mascara. But this is a perfect everyday, natural looking mascara. And for less than £5 you can't go wrong! 

Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Eye Pencil - 005 Nude
This is something that I had wanted for ages but always seemed to be sold out in every Boots I went to. I only picked it up just over a week ago but I have worn it everyday since and know I am going to continue wearing it. It's amazing for reducing redness and making eyes look more awake. And the fact that it is nude and not white makes it look a lot more natural. Definitely recommend this. 

Accessorize Gold Necklace
Don't think that they will still be selling this exact necklace as I have had this for a while, but I have been loving very delicate jewellery lately, particularly this gold necklace. It's the perfect way to dress up a really simple outfit and I think that it looks so classy and effortless. 

Ted Baker Body Lotion
I forgot I even had this until I got home a few weeks ago and saw it in my cupboard. If I am honest as far as a moisturiser goes there are probably better ones. But this smells so amazing! I don't know how to describe it, but trust me, it smells good. I loved using this after a bath when I was having a bit of a pamper. I also think Ted Baker body lotions or scrubs or something would make a lovely present for someone, or just as a treat for yourself!
