Why is the year moving so quickly? Am I the only one feeling that if I blink twice it’ll be Christmas?
With that being said, let’s not waste any time and jump straight into my July favourites!
Throughout the month of July, I’ve been loving a mixture of things, I didn’t really overly indulge this month but, when I find something I love, I will use it to its death, so the first thing on my list has to be…
1.Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil
Since purchasing the Benefit brow in late June (have you read my review yet?), the Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil, has been my go-to eyebrow pencil! I absolutely love it. I would go as far to say that’s it the best eyebrow pencil I’ve ever bought and there have been many!👀 😅
It just gives me the perfect brow every time, with its thin, precise tip and creamy formula, and I totally prefer it to Benefits Goof Proof Pencil.
The packaging is absolutely lush too. The only thing I would say, is that it needs to have more product *sobs into tissue* as mine ran out yesterday 😭
2. Spotify 🎧
I’ve been signed up to spotify for about a year now, but it’s only since I started driving to work (I spend about 10 hours a week in my car), that I’ve fully appreciated this app on my phone – it has every song possible -EXCEPT Statik Selektah Look of Love – like – where can I track down this bomb ass playlist? If you know, let me know, cos I need it my life!
These are my fave playlists at the moment.
I have to listen to something gangsta in the morning, then on the way home, maybe some chilled vibes with the soul queen – Jill Scott.
What playlists would you recommend on spotify?
3. Topshop sandals
I wasn’t meant to actually buy sandals but, as I’m such a clever clogs and decided to wear wedges into London (I mean, who actually does that) for the Blogger Hangout event my feet needed some comfort, as they were burning from all the walking, so I stopped in Topshop and found these.
No word of a lie, these are THE best sandals I have ever bought. Genuine leather sandals for £28… it’s a bloody bargain! You know when you normally get a pair of shoes and you have to break them in, yeah… I didn’t have to do that with these.
As you can see from their sorry state, I practically live in them – I really should invest in another pair, but I love the simplicity of the design and the fact that they wrap around the ankle-which is kind of ‘in’ at the moment.
4. Pandora Sykes
I read a lot of blogs but if you’ve never heard of Pandora Sykes, please get to know. Her writing style is just amazing and in all honesty she possesses a writing style I would love to have. She discusses some great topics on her blog, and her sense of style is just ugghhhh 🙌 – check out her blog!
I cannot remember the last time I bought something online, without searching for a discount code.
Call me cheap, but, there really are too many savings to be had!
Everydayisblackfriday.co.uk is a website that works slightly differently. It tracks down the best deals and discount codes for you, so all you have to do is search for the item you want and buy it at a discounted rate.
They’ve got so many brands on their website, that it’s really is worth checking here first, to see if you can get it cheaper, than buying straight from the source.
As I shop a lot at ASOS, I really loved that everydayisblackfriday.co.uk post when there are discount codes that can be used on ASOS too – so f you’re like me and always looking for a good bargain, make sure you bookmark this page!
6. Harry Potter
Eeek! This is where my inner nerd comes out! 👓 ⚡️
Harry Potter came out this month, how could this not be one of my faves?
Anyone else finished the book?
7. Tea Tree Treats
If you follow me on twitter, you may have seen me tweet about my enlarged pores -such a nuisance. But after watching Tasha Green rave about her Tea Tree oil, I thought I’d hit up The Body Shop and treat myself.
I initially only wanted the Tea Tree Oil which was £12, but I then saw a deal with a bundle of Tea Tree Oil products for £20 so obviously went for that.
I love that the products deep clean pores and leave my skin feeling squeaky clean and refreshed with a light tingle – am I the only one who likes this sensation?
I’ve always reacted well towards Tea Tree oil so, I’m exciting to start using these long term to see how my skin improves, but already, I’ve seen my pores reduce in size, which is always a good thing!
So, there you have it, my July favourites! Have you got anything you would absolutely recommend trying?
See you on my next post x
