- It feels like an eternity since I last posted or filmed a 'monthly favourites.' 
This is probably down to me using  favouring my old loves and not really switching them up in time to give new products a fair trial in time for a monthly favourites post/video.
Over the last couple of weeks I have however found two products that are well and truly deservant of becoming my entire May favourites and they need a shot in the limelight!

Lee Stafford Treatment

"For hair that never grows past a certain length"
£7.99 available at Boots.
"Protein based comples to fertilise your follicles, creating a healthy environment on the scalp to help hair grow faster and reach it's maximum potential legnth if the earth's not nourished you'll never grow beautiful flowers."

Going au natural with my hair and ditching the heat!!!
- I have seen this hair treatment doing the rounds on various beauty blogs for such a long time now and having heard a mixed bag of reviews about it, I knew I had to pick it up and try it out for myself.
For the past three years I have been growing my hair out of its super short 'pob' style in a bid to have long, shiny and healthy locks. My hair currently sits just above my chest and to be honest for a good while it hasn't been in the best of condition due to me pouring 5 gallons of red hair dye on it every month. I have been making an effort lately to replinish the condition of my hair by using nourishing shampoo's and conditioners and various deep treatments and hair masks.
The Lee Stafford treatment has also been added to my 'hair revival' kit and although I know it hasn't added any length to my hair it has giving it a new lease of life.
I use this after I have applied a shampoo and before using my conditioner, I also like to smooth the product through my hair and leave it on for a good hour or two wrapped in a hair towel.
To add to the amazing condition it has left my hair in it smells gorgeous, very similar to Gucci's Rush perfume and is lovely and pleasant to work with.

Summer bronze self tanning mousse
99p available at Bodycare and Home Bargains"
"Expose streak free self tanning mousse develops an even tan in hours which lasts for days. Formulated with Aloe Vera to help moisturise your skin for a bronzed and radiant finish without the sun.
- By far the most amazing tanning agent I have ever used.
It is just the best. Simply the best of the best and that's coming from somebody who has tried every fake tan under the sun.
An example of my colouring three days after using the Expose self tanner.
- The mousse is white and lightly scented, it applies smoothly and doesn't leave you looking dirty like St Moriz does so you can apply it at any time of the day and got on with your business. It develops into a nice, more natural sun kissed glow which for paler complexions like mine is perfect in comparason to the nasty orange hue some fake tans leave you with. It doesn't leave nasty tide marks around your wrists, feet and ankles and can be applied before any occasion as it doesn't develop a base colour. It really isn't lying when it states that the fake tan is streak free I have no tell tale tan marks especially in unforgiving areas such as my elbows, knees and inbetween my fingers. At first I didn't think it was working but after around 3 days a gorgeous natural glow appeared that gained me lots of complements, I was asked twice where i'd been on holiday when the truth is I have barely had any sun at all despite the gorgeous weather.
I can tell it's a goody as I haven't had my mum on my case about how horrendous my hands and feet look,she even said herself that I just look glowing and sunkissed.
I can't rave about this enough it is perfect and I don't intend to use anything else.

Love, Holl
