Oh boy, it has been a long while since I last shared with you my Monthly Favourites. I know that these are the type of posts that everyone likes to read to see and compare your favourites to others'. This month has been a bit hot and cold, hasn't it? Hence why all of my favourites are skincare related as I am still furloughed and not wearing much makeup!

I know this post is now long overdue, however, I found it quite hard to balance out blogging while on holiday as I stupidly didn't schedule any posts before setting off! Thus, not only is this post a bit late but I also included the UD Naked Heat palette in my July's favourites as I had a couple of weeks longer to play with it rather than judging it by its first use, even though it's bloody amazing.

This July I loved a few products, mainly skincare but there's also a makeup item.

First of all, let's talk about the Victoria Secret body sprays. I absolutely love their whole range and trying to pick out a few from the whole collection was quite a tough task. I've especially been loving Sheer Love as I feel like it's the perfect summer fragrance and feels so light on, unlike perfume which I find a bit too heavy to wear during hot summer days.

Next up we've got the Argan Oil heat defence leave in spray. I don't even remember how many times I've repurchased or spoke about this product, but I got back into using it as it works wonders, especially in humid weather where my hair tends to get frizzy.

And what's summer without dry skin? I feel like my hands get really dry in summer which is odd as most people tend to get dry skin in winter. This Soap and Glory Endless Glove hand cream has literally been my life saver this summer. I love the scent of it - it's very fruity, just what summer is all about.

Last but not least, the Bourjois 123 Perfect foundation. The coverage is great, the scent is great and the whole idea is just great. The only negative thing I have to say is that the colour range is very poor and I'm forced to mix this foundation with another in order to get a shade that suits me most.

What did you love this July? Have you tried any of the items I've mentioned?

Lots of love,

2015 || July Favourites

Hey guys!

I'm currently roasting in sunny Crete and realised that I haven't done a July favourites post yet! I know, that's so naughty of me, sorry! As I'm sipping some ice cold lemonade (soon to turn into a magical cocktail), I decided to write this post on my iPhone blogger app so of the pictures aren't very clear and the font and style isn't the usual one then don't worry! I will sort it out as soon as I get onto a computer. 
I bought this hair dye from Poundwolrd and can't stress enough to you how much I love it! It is very pigmented and has made my hair feel very nourished rather than straggly or chewing gum-like. I have previously dyed my hair a beach blonde colour in order to lighten it up before my holiday and after disappointing results of it turning out bright yellow I had to take action and go to back to my successful grey hair colour.
This is what my hair looked like before I applied Mellor&Russell Simply Bright hair dye in Cool Silver. As you can see it's not a nice colour at all, especially for a beauty blogger! 
And this is the after picture of what my hair looked like once I washed off the hair dye. Not exactly silver, but a much nicer colour with no brassiness. I definitely recommend this hair dye if you're already blonde and want to go a few shades lighter without having to go through the 'yellow' stage. 

Another favourite of mine is not a product, but a job. I have landed myself a job at the Disney Store in July as a Cast Member (another word for customer service representative). I'm loving working over there, I wouldn't change it for any other job! I have grown to enjoy talking to kids even more than before and being around such lovely people as my colleagues makes the atmosphere even more magical than the job itself! 
Here's a little selfie of me on my first day working for the Disney Company! 

What have you been loving last month?

Lots of love,
