May Loves

I love posting my monthly love posts but I didn't really find any new recommendations in the month of April - that's why I skipped a month. May was a very successful month, though - I had my final exams and with final exams comes a lot of procrastination, thus the discovering of new loves!

Angus & Julia Stone
I've known their songs for quite a long time but I never actually decided to give their songs a proper listen. Wish I'd done this earlier - I love their style!

Fresh flowers
Our garden is beautiful: there are so many colors and all the flowers smell so nice. Having a fresh bouquet in my room whenever all the flowers are in bloom is a must. Favorites: tulips.

Face creams with SPF
I'm quite lazy when it comes to face moisturizers - I like using them but I tend to go for the cheaper and nice-smelling ones. I do feel like protecting my skin during the sunnier months is quite important, though - I've burnt my nose about 20 times already and looking like a lobster is not one of my favorite things in the world.

Lars Kepler - Stalker
After a long period of time of reading young adult novels I'm slowly getting back into reading thrillers - the genre I've always loved and always will love. Lars Kepler's books are amazing and so is his newest one, Stalker.

The Place Beyond The Pines
I'd never heard of this movie in my life but I stumbled upon the trailer on a day I spent YouTubing (yes, that's a hobby of mine,  hehe). "A motorcycle stunt rider turns to robbing banks as a way to provide for his lover and their newborn child, a decision that puts him on a collision course with an ambitious rookie cop navigating a department ruled by a corrupt detective." Ryan Gosling is the motorcycle stunt rider, Bradley Cooper is the ambitious rookie cop. Enough said?

Daisy Dream by Marc Jacobs
I blogged about this perfume about one thousand years ago but the weather has been better later, which means it's time to dust off summery perfumes again - including this amazing one by Marc Jacobs. It's my favorite perfume ever and I'm glad the perfume matches the season again.

Vintage clothing
I've been trying to watch my expenses lately and I recently visited a vintage kilo sale as well. I've discovered many new awesome 'old' items (and I'll share some of them with you, soon).

Gossip Girl
I didn't know what to do with my life after finishing watching How I Met Your mother. The quest for a new series had been going on for a while and I'm glad I discovered Gossip Girl. I'm a bit embarrassed to admit I'd never seen even one episode before but I'm glad I gave the series a shot - and even though it's so different compared to all the other series I usually watch, I'm loving it. XOXO. 

I feel like I discovered quite a few new things this month. Where April was an extremely boring one (I didn't even share an 'April Loves' last month as I didn't feel like I had anything to share), this month was better. Please let me know if you have any recommendations for me based on this little list of things I loved.

have a lovely month!

  7. With final exams comes great procrastination! Haha, that's so true! My exams are ending soon but I still have A Levels in November to study for. Bleh. Hahhaha, I'd love to read Stalker! It sounds so cool, and I'm trying to find books to get my mind going again!

  8. I am addicted to creams and I always look for the best when it comes to face moisturize.
    I am not obesessed: I am not that kind of person who use SPF also during winter (I should do it, as I am turning 30...I know) but during summer I always use it, considering that here in Italy we already have 27°C at the begininng of May.
    I don't know if can be interesting for you, but I used to check an app for the beauty products called GoodGuide which has a lot of information about a lot of products. Maybe it's not the proper answer to this post but I just wanted to share it.



  9. I love when people roundup their favorites from every month! I am loving all these photos! That Marc Jacobs fragrance is one of my favorite scents! I also loved Gossip Girl and could not get enough of it!

  10. Daisy Dream is so beautiful for Spring. I had a small sample that I've used a couple times to switch it up from my normal Elizabeth & James Nirvana White! Love it!

    Much LOVE!!

  11. I love Angus and Julia Stone, especially the song 'I'm not yours' :) Gossip Girl is amazing too! xx

  12. Fresh flowers make everything seem more alive! xx Lovely post

  13. I've just stumbled across your blog and it's really lovely! There are a lot of things in this post I'm also really enjoying, I work in a small corner flower shop and fresh flowers are probably my most favourite thing! I have to have a bunch of flowers sitting on the little table in my bedroom all the time! The Place Beyond The Pines has got to be one of my most favourite films & I honestly don't know what I'm going to do once I've finished watching Gossip Girl, I love it! Great post :-)
