July Favourites


It's August!
I know that everyone says that all the time, but I actually can't believe that it is already month eight out of twelve! This is good for so many reasons:
One, I go to Australia in a month. Have I mentioned that? I'm not too sure :P
Two, it's nearly Christmas.
Three, the weather is still lovely, but it's soon to be Autumn - My favourite time to take pictures
Four, I can write a post all about my monthly favourites!

So, Let's get started!

I saw these cute little charms in a small corner shop the other day. I had never been in the shop before as it's so tucked away. Once I walked in, there was a treasure trove filled with beautiful gifts and trinkets. From scarves (I always think that word is so strange) to bath bombs the shop was full of so many things that I wanted. However, I only picked up a couple of things. Firstly, a scarf with little boats all over it that I bought for my mum and secondly one of my absolutely favourite things, a few little charms that I am going to add to some jewellery. When I've decided whether to do a necklace or a bracelet, I'll post a picture!

My Blog 
Even if I do say so myself, I really love my blog! It's recently had a refresh and absolutely love it. The colours are a lot more professional and the way it is laid out is so much better than before. I hope you love it as much as I do and now that I'm finally happy with the way it looks, I'm posting a lot more too. Win-Win.

Gone Girl 
Now to be honest, this should probably be in next month's favourites, but I've decided to add it in here. I bought Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and cannot wait to get stuck in. I haven't read a book in so long, but as I am trying to make a little more time for myself, I thought I'd grab a book I am really interested in reading - So, although I can't really count this as a favourite, I just know it will be!

It would be rude not to include a beauty product, or two...

Revlon 24 Hours Colour Stay Foundation 
I am really fed up of my Mac (Pro Long Wear SPF 10) foundation to be honest. I have used it for the past 3 or 4 months but now it is most definitely time for a change. Don't get me wrong, it is a good foundation, but for some reason it's just becoming a bit gloopy on my skin and only really works well with a beauty blender. When I started using a brush to apply it - it all went wrong really and at around £25, it's not great value for money. So, because of this, I decided to swap to the Revlon colourstay makeup base foundation and so far, so good. The colour isn't quite the right match for my skin, but that's my fault and to be honest it's only very, very slightly out. With some decent blending and a good bronzer it looks great. Lightweight and easy to apply, it also stays on for most of the day so I'm really impressed. Plus, at around £12.99 I am not complaining...

Revlon Lipstick in Iced Amethyst 
Yes, I know that this is another Revlon product, but I love it!
I don't usually wear lipstick. I think that if you get the wrong shade, your teeth can look aweful and from time to time adding lipstick makes you look a little over done, so it's not an everyday occurance for me. However, I tried another lipstick out of my Revlon Colour Cube the other day (a collection of 9 lipsticks in varying shades and colours) and it is one of my favourites by far! The colour is dark and more suited to Autumn/Winter, but I love the browny-purple colour. It really compliments my skin and dark hair and will be wearing it more and more.

Anyway, I think that is enough favourites for this month. What have you been loving this month?
