Some Favourites from July


I was trying to think of skin care/ beauty products to put in my monthly favourites and then I realised...I shouldn't have to think about it! I really don't change my skincare or make - up often enough to talk about new products each month so these posts would really start to read the same every time which would be rather pointless. Instead, I am going to share my favourite anything from the previous month, this might sometimes include skincare but I'm sure it will more often than not be completely random, I hope you don't mind?


My first two favourites are food and drink related. I have such a sweet tooth, if I could eat cake and chocolate all day I would, and do so happily! That is one of the reasons I love to bake, but due to the fact that this year has been seriously up and down I wanted to try and get back into some kind of healthy eating and exercise routine which obviously can't involve quite as much chocolate as it previous has done. Enter "Guilt Free Snacking"!, it's not actually guilt free really, it has just been measured out into small calorie counted portions so you don't go crazy with larger sized bags but i am pretty sure it's the same stuff. You can pick this up at Marks and Spencer's if you are in the UK and they do a few different treats in this line, one being chocolate covered salty pretzels which are just yummy! 

My Starbucks tumbler is all I have used for drinking since I got it a few weeks ago. It was a spur of the moment purchase when standing in line to get an iced latte and I absolutely love it, plus my first drink was free as I had it put in the cup. There were 3 or 4 different designs n the shelf but I love how this one looks just like the plastic take-away cups you normally get, I have used it so much since getting it that my doubts about it being worth the money have been forgotten.


I got this hat last summer to go with a maxi dress I had just bought at the time but we had quite a lot rain so I ended up not wearing it more than two or three times, this year however we have had lots of sun and I have been wearing my little hat with everything I can. Its not too big big but it helps keep the sun off my face which I like because my nose and cheeks can get quite red even with sun cream. Along with my hat I have been loving the Hi-Shine Gelly polishes from BarryM. I only have two colours are the moment, Prickly Pear and Blueberry but I would really like to get some more, any recommendations? The formula leaves your nails super shiny and it can last a good few days without chipping, the longest for me has been 5 days and on my nails that is impressive!

I honestly cannot believe we are now in August!, it is already making my look forward to autumn...but I know we aren't quite there yet. And the best thing about August in my opinion is the Edinburgh Fringe Festival...I am so excited, can't wait to go :)

What are you looking forward to this month?
