Holy crap, July is over already. I’m okay with that though as August is going to be a massive month for me; it’s my birthday, my blog birthday AND it’s The Girl Gang Event as well. WHOOP WHOOP!! It’s also the first time in absolutely ages that I’ve remembered to do a monthly favourites, so big high five for me 😀
Although yes, I do realise it’s technically August now, but at least I tried. So here’s what I’ve been loving in July.
I haven’t bought a magazine for aaaaages, but as I’ve been travelling to London a lot recently, I love picking the odd one up to read on the train. Especially when there’s a free gift. Thanks Glamour! I’ve been absolutely loving wearing the Lip Lacquer from Model Co (in Morocco) on hair up days. Because hair down and lip gloss is a massive no-no for me. Anyone else?
Having been a massive Sleek fan since I got into make-up (which is only a year. Yes, really, no judging!) I’d only seem to own their eyeshadow and brow palettes; until now. I adore this lipstick* in Liqueur and as you can see, I’ve worn it a lot since I’ve owned it. Also on the list of favourites is their eyeliner*. I honestly never thought I’d say anything was better than my beloved Rimmel eyeliner, but it lasts all night without having to retouch it! Winner ♥
Next on my list is the Zoella Wonder Hand cream. It’s been such a saviour to my poor dry hands! It doesn’t feel greasy at all and smells so lovely. My cuticles have definitely improved since I started using it 🙂
Last on my love list is the Coffee Bean Scrub from Bean Body* It’s enriched with vitamin E, coconut oil and sea salt. The caffeine in it stimulates blood flow and helps reduce the appearance of cellulite, eczema, stretch marks and more. I found it really effective and made my thighs and bum so soft and smooth. The only downside (which isn’t that huge) is it smells so strongly of coffee! It is a little over-powering but the effects are so good that I just use it with the bathroom window flung open.
It’s been such a long time since I treated myself to a new purse that when I saw this beauty from LYDC, I knew it had to be mine! I’m really fussy when it comes to purses as I like loads of card spaces and a separate zip up section for my coins. This has everything! And it’s so pretty too!
I’m also totally in love this this print I bought from Jemma. Let’s be honest, everyone totally knows she’s one of my blogging BFFs, but I genuinely love her work. This ridiculously adorable Let’s Get Lost print makes me happy every time I see it ♥
What have you been loving this month? Let me know in the comments below 🙂 x

coffee scrubs are sooooo messy!
I never realised how bad they were till I was trying to clean the shower afterwards lol
omg Jemma’s products are the best! Fab post!
Aren’t they so cute? 🙂 Thank you!
I love that purse! I really need to try the Zoella hand cream. I’ve heard lots of good stuff about it.
I really love it, it’s big enough for everything 🙂 And yeah, I really love the hand cream!!
Love the print! Her work is so amazing!

Loved your post and amazing photos. I keep saying I’ll try that coffee scrub but haven’t got round to it yet, it’s sounds great. I do live that print by Jemma 🙂
I definitely recommend the scrub but it is quite pungent! The print is just all kinds of gorgeous, isn’t it? xx
I AM YOUR BLOGGING BFF. HEHEHEHEHEEEE. AWW I LOVES YOU! <3
One of!! I said ONE OF 😛 LOVE YOU TOOOOOOOO xx
I’ve been meaning to try that coffee bean scrub, it looks really good! Plus if it leaves your thighs & bum all soft, must be a winner!
It’s really good but damn the coffee smell is so strong!!
That’s no issue, I’m a fan of the smell of coffee. Sad but true!
Good luck then! I think I have a “refer a friend” thing … I can send you links tonight if you wanted to buy some cheaper? x
