Hello beautiful ones!
July has said goodbye to us for another year and we have moved into August (nearly Autumn, eep!!) so, it’s only fair that I let you know what I have been loving throughout July, isn’t it? 🙂
As always, everything mentioned wherever possible is linked in this post! ❤
~ Books ~
Billy and Me ~ Giovanna Fletcher
I mentioned this little gem in my Holiday Essentials blog post and I truly did love it.
You get so easily swept into Sophie May’s world and fall in love with her life, the twists and turns as well as relating to every issue that crops up. It is a lovely easy going book and I highly recommend it!
Always With Love ~ Giovanna Fletcher
This is a sequel to Billy and Me and it really is a lovely book. This one has a lot more going on than Billy and Me, however, it is just as good. It follows Sophie and Billy into their relationship and the issues and arguments that crop up! Once again, you can really relate and feel empathy and happiness for all of the characters involved. Giovanna is a beautiful author and I couldn’t recommend her books highly enough!
~ Skincare ~
Love Lettuce Face Mask ~ Lush
When I returned from my holidays my skin was screaming for some TLC and so I turned to the one place I knew would save me. Lush. Lush have so many amazing products and this is one of them.
I have fallen head over heels in love with this face mask! It is so cooling, refreshing, hydrating and acts as a scrub too as it does have some shell in there so you can gently exfoliate your skin too. It leaves my skin feeling silky smooth, hydrated and calm after I have used it and I am absolutely besotted ❤
Angels on Bare Skin ~ Lush
This cleanser… I honestly don’t think I have ever found something that smells as good or works as well as this cleanser.
You simply grab a lump of the cleanser, add a bit of warm water to it and let it become a paste. You then gently rub it all around your face in circular motions and, honestly, it has been a saviour. It leaves my skin feeling so smooth, so refreshed and so goddam clean I can’t even describe it! I absolutely love this stuff!
~ Haircare ~
John Frieda Miraculous Recovery Conditioner
I mentioned this in my Summer Haircare Routine and, honestly, I am wondering how its taken me so long to find this!
It leaves my hair feeling so silky, smooth and smelling fantastic! What more could you want? I am actually so impressed by this conditioner, I am absolutely obsessed with it!
~ Make-up ~
Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette
This has been a make-up staple for me since I received it as a birthday gift and recently I have fallen in love with it all over again. I have been using one colour from this palette everyday and then exploring more with it at the weekends and, ohmygod, it blends like butter, is so pigmented and stays in place all day/night long. Obsessed. Its just bloody brilliant, if you haven’t tried any Urban Decay eyeshadows before, seriously, go try some.
Urban Decay Naked Skin Shapeshifter ~ Light/Medium
When I saw this on the release Instagram posts I knew I just had to grab one for myself and holy hell I am so glad I did! It is just stunning. The creams and powders are beautifully pigmented, blend like a dream and stay in place all day long. I am so happy I treated myself to this beauty as I use it every single day and can’t help but love it more and more each time I use it ❤
Jeffree Star Lip Ammunition ~ Birthday Suit
Yas, I did treat myself to one of Jeffree’s Summer Chrome Collection Lip Ammunition lipsticks and I love it!
I chose the colour Birthday Suit as it is a lovely browny, pinky nude which is what I love all over for a lipstick! I absolutely love it. The formula is lovely and creamy, it stays put really well and the colour pay off is just beautiful. Lurrrv.
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation ~ Mont Blanc
I have done a review on this foundation and I have used it everyday since I bought it! I absolutely love it! It makes my skin look like perfection, covers every single blemish beautifully and stays in place all day long without any touch-ups or powdering! It is perfect for everyday or evenings and I am in love ❤
~ Randoms ~
This past month I decided to start a scrapbook. This is something I have wanted to do for years but never quite got round to starting it but in July I decided ‘what the heck?!’ and started my scrapbook! I am absolutely in love with it so far, I love having all of my memories in one place and being able to look back and remember all of the good times, the days out and the food I have eaten! Ha! I love it, I am just so obsessed and absolutely adore scrapbooking ❤
I first discovered this photo printing service through one of my Birchbox boxes last year and have fallen in love with it since! They print photos normally, in square prints and can make them look like polaroid photos too! I absolutely love this service, and, you can even order them through an app and use your photos from social media platforms like Facebook & Instagram which is amazing! I love them ❤
So there we go, another month another bunch of favourites! What have you been loving throughout July? 🙂
