Summer is over and my heart is a little bit broken because of it. I had a particularly incredible summer this year, full of swimming, sun and the beach and I'm sad to see it go and to get back into the usual uni routine. I thought in honour of summer, I would do a special edition 'favourites' this month to see it out. Here are a collection of products that I loved this summer and are perfect for anyone going into the summer time where they live.

I pride myself so much on creating content and delivering it on a regular basis, so while I was on holiday I tried to schedule as many posts as I possibly could. Before I left my life was as usual, but upon return so much had changed and my mind was anywhere but in it's usual blogging state. I needed time for me, and I took a few days to push blogging out of my mind and to just work on those post holiday errands and spend some much needed time with my support group - my friends.
While I usually keep things as positive as possible in this space, I have been going through a difficult time. It is not necessarily something earth shattering, but it's a big change to my life and one that comes with a lot of thoughts and feelings that need to be sorted through.
The deterioration of a relationship is never fun and the limbo between should we work on it or is it over is just as bad. There are a lot of factors, and while it's been a slow and steady decline and both of us are leaning towards the same decision, it is definitely a big lifestyle change. I almost wish there was something to blame, as there being no solid cause is what is creating such uncertainty.
In the next day or two I really hope to get back on my blogging game and have content as usual, but I really hope you guys will bare with me otherwise.
I would love to hear your thoughts on relationships and how to know when to continue or end them.

My eyes are my problem area, and for this reason I am always exhaustively trying out concealers and eye creams hoping to fix what I am not willing to admit is probably just a hereditary problem. This is probably the first eye cream I've picked up that wasn't targeted at dark circles, but I wanted to give it a shot anyway as it claims to be soothing and gentle on the eyes - which is exactly what a good eye cream should do.

Lip product formulation is a deal breaker to me, regardless of how stunning a colour is. Unless it is perfect, I don't find myself reaching for it. I love things to be creamy and opaque and I have rounded up the brands that do it best. These are all products that I've loved since the very first application.
MAC Lipsticks "Amplified" Formula
This is not matte, but it is not glossy either. It's just a great in-between that is opaque and easy to wear regardless of the state of your lips. I'm not going to lie, most of MACs formulas are spot on, but I really love this one in particular and recommend you checking them out if you haven't!
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks
These are an incredible, moisturising and glossy formula which is definitely saying something as I usually am not a gloss fan. These lipsticks are incredibly opaque, which is what I love the very most about them. This is a range I would love to see extended as there are only a handful of shades that I would want to purchase.
Kate Moss for Rimmel Lipsticks
Rimmel really do lips well, evidently. This is another incredible formulation, but most of the collection leans more towards the creamy/matte side. This collection is also much broader in the colour department and has something for everyone. I recommend this formulation to people all the time!
Revlon Colourburst Matte Balms
These are incredible and I haven't heard a single bad review on them! They have a nice range, and I'm sure their glossier formula are just as lovely. The thing I love most about these is their minty smell, as I'm a freak when it comes to mint.
I love Topshop largely for their range of on trend colours, but their formulation is usually spot on no matter what it may be. They are a great, affordable brand to try if you can get your hands on them, especially for unique shades that just aren' that common in the pharmacy.
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet
This is another incredible formula that's major flaw is the shade range. I really am not a red person, no matter how much I wish I was, and would love to see some more neutral shades in the mix. These are super long wearing, although they are removed with eating, but for this reason they aren't the drying liquid lipsticks you might have tried in this past. These definitely can be applied on slightly chapped lips, which is definitely a rare quality in the liquid department.

After a busy exam period, I am heading off to the beach for a week with some of my closest friends! We're just going to mess around and have some fun before uni starts back for the year and I couldn't be more excited. I've spent the past month or so pretty focused on studying for these exams and working on other things rather than spending time with my friends, so this will be refreshing.
