Monthly Favourites | July

I've been looking forward to July and my holiday for so long and now it's gone by in the blink of eye - it's madness. I don't have as many favourites as i normally do this month, as I've been stick to a pretty basic make up look and sticking to the same few products.

Review | Zoella Kissy Missy Lip Balm

Review | Zoella Kissy Missy Lip Balm

I honestly had no intention of buying anything from Zoella's beauty range, whilst i like Zoella a lot, I'm just not blown away by her beauty range. Don't get me wrong; it's packaged lovely and I'm sure the products themselves are really nice too but to me, it just lacks a bit of imagination especially where the scents are concerned; first, vanilla and now tutti frutti - it's just not very original.

That being said, one product that did catch my attention and i couldn't resist picking up was the Zoella Kissy Missy Lip Balm.

Make Up Products I've Used Up #3

I've used up quite a few make up product since i last did one of these posts and a lot of the products seem to be mascara as they are probably the easiest product to use up. I think i say this every time but it's so satisfying knowing you've finished a product up without it going to waste.

Car Boot Sale Haul #10

It has been quite a while since i last posted a Car Boot Sale Haul; they hadn't been so great lately and i was only picking up the odd item which i couldn't justify a full post on and i didn't go the past two weeks due to being on holiday and being too tired to get up at 6am. I've really missed not going and was really glad to get back today and route out some bargains.

Liz Earle Gorgeous Skin Gift Set

Liz Earle Gorgeous Skin Gift

Liz Earle skin care is a holy grail amongst beauty bloggers; I've wanted to jump on the bandwagon for a very long time but i always found reasons to put it off. My sister got me the Liz Earle Gorgeous Skin Gift Set at Christmas (I think its only available at Christmas time) and as they are travel sizes, i decided to save it and take it with me on my holiday.

5 Product Face

5 Product Face

I love wearing make up; sometime i can spend ages perfecting my eyeliner and really putting in the effort with it. Other days, i just can't be bothered and i want a quick routine that is easy to do but still leaves me looking half decent. I'm still playing around with different product but for now here is my 5 product face.

Review | Sun Smart UV Wristbands

Review | Sun Smart UV Wristbands

We all know that being in the Sun for too long can be quite dangerous and looking after yourself and protecting your skin is very important. I do my best to look after my skin but sometimes i don't always reapply my suncream as often as i should. So when i was asked if I'd like to try the Sun Smart UV Wristbands*, i figured it would be the perfect opportunity to really test them out whilst i was away.

Holiday Haul

Holiday Haul

No holiday is complete without a little bit of shopping now is it? I actually surprised myself this time around because i didn't go as crazy as i normally do - i didn't even pick anything up in the airport on the way, which for me is a big deal! Anyways, most of the thing i bought were for presents but i did pick a few things up for myself.

What's In My Travel Make Up Bag?

What's In My Travel Make Up Bag?

It's always such a tough decision when it comes to deciding on what make up i want to take on holiday, normally i go way overboard and pack alternatives for everything, you know just in case. I'm actually quite proud of myself this time round as I've really limited the amount of products but still given a couple of alternatives so i can mix it up.

Top 5 | Eyeliners

Top 5 | Eyeliners

Eyeliner is a massive staple in my make up bag; it's very rare that i go a day without wearing it. I love wearing bold winged out liner, it's such a classic look and really helps to emphasise the eyes. On the rare occasion I'm not wearing felt tip liner, i opt to tightline my eyes to give an edgy look to my eye make up.

Nowadays, everyone is getting a lot more clued up on what products they're using and what ingredients they have within them.
