July's Favourites

Bye July! I am so excited for August, I love August, my son turns 6, P2 for him and I start college again! Excited to get back into a proper routine, but here are the things I have been loving this month!

July's Skincare Saviours

As I get more into skincare, I thought it would be fun to do a roundup at the end of each month of the skincare items I have been loving. So this is that. Welcome to July's skincare roundup! :) 

DKNY Dreamsicle & Roses De Chloe From Perfume Click*

I haven't bought a new perfume in so so long, and I am at the point where I have 5 almost empty ones, so when PerfumeClick contacted me asking me if I would like to try their site and pick some perfumes, I was more than happy to accept! 

Perfume Click specialise in designer and celebrity perfumes, but also sell fake tan, makeup, haircare, skincare. There is SO much on there, all at a discounted price, it is really good for finding perfumes that are not in stores anymore. 

An Ode To Elemental Herbology*

Have you ever just used a brand and thought AAAAH I LOVE YOU. Well for me that brand is Elemental Herbology. It was one I hadn't heard of up until recently. It was sent through to me in a PR package along with a few other brands to try, then I fell in love with the quality of the products.

Summer/Beach Hand Bag Essentials

Aaaah Summer. The thought of a hot sunny day does excite me, but at the same time I have the realisation that I need to carry more around with me than I usually would. Simply because we are out enjoying the outdoors more! :) Here are the things that are now living in my big handbag, ready for trips to the beach, or the park whenever the sun comes out to play! :) 

HerClutterBox Clear Acrylic Storage*

It's posts like this that end up being 90% pictures, and for a good reason too. They are BEAUTIFUL. I could spend all day taking photos of it. So pretty, so so pretty. 

Her Clutter Box very kindly contacted me and asked if I would like to try out their 4 drawer storage system, and of course take some pretty photos with it filled with pretty makeup! :) So of course I said yes, I am always looking for new ways of organising my makeup! :) 

SuperFacialist By Una Brennan Vitamin C+ Range*

I have loved using the the Vitamin C Oil Cleanser from the Superfacialist range for so long now. I reviewed it here. And last month I finished up the bottle, and then the brand very kindly contacted me asking if I would like to try out the rest of the range. 

Make Up: One In, One Out.

I say so many times on here OMG I cannot get enough of *insert item* its usually nude lipsticks, brown eyeshadows and highlighters. Because I really can never have enough... 

But there are some products out there that I just will not have more than one of in my collection, I am on a strict one in - one out, won't have two of rule. I didn't ever mean to do this, but these are the things I simply don't feel the need to buy more of - until I am finishing the one I am using. Obviously there will be slight brakes to this, but most of the time this is it. So here are the products that I do this with - They tend to be colourless.... 

Make Up: Summer Beauty Edit

Make Up: Summer Beauty Edit

It's mid summer, I cannot believe how quickly this is going past, and it doesn't even feel like we have had a good bit of warm weather yet! I love doing these posts seasonally, just to see how my makeup preferences change throughout the year and which products I am reaching for. So here is my Summer Edit! :)

Rooi Luxury Living: The Kate Spade Ice Bucket*

I feel so EXTRA right now - and I don't even care. HA. 

Rooi contacted me asking if I would like to review an item from their website, after a look around the one item that was just screaming my name was this Kate Spade Ice Bucket. With it's clear and rose gold spotty appearance - I just couldn't take my eyes off it. 

Sure an ice bucket is totally random, and a Kate Spade one is just SO extra, so I thought I would tell you the 3 reasons I will be using mine this summer. 

July: Goals, Wishes & Regrets

Another month another wish list. Welcome to July. It's summer holidays, so I have lots of plans for this summer, as always these posts just round up what I am looking for this month, and the things I am regretting :) 

Why I Sold My Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette (Not Worth The Hype)

Without a doubt the most hyped up palette this year so far, and sure it really is beautiful. I was right on that band wagon as soon as they released the pictures - and I had to get my hands on it - the second of the pre-release. 

The pictures were incredible. I cannot resist a warm palette and this is warm toned goodness. I LOVE the shade range, I love a warm shadow palette. I have way too many already, but alas it is my weak spot, and I never seem to own enough of them. 

New SO...? Fragrances*

I am a huge lover of high end fragrances, but as soon as summer hits and trips to the beach, parties, nights out and festivals become the norm - my taste in scent changes.

Instead of reaching for more intense, deep, sexy perfumes, I opt for something light, quick and easy. I love to smell fresh in summer, and I practically bathe in fragrance on sunny days - which means I tend to go for something a bit less in price to compensate my 10 sprays every few hours! 

Garnier Botanical Green Tea Leaves Skincare*

I was kindly sent the new Botanicals Green Tea Leaves range by the team at Garnier to try, and I have been loving them so far! This new range is designed for those of us with combo/oily skin, and helps to clean, clear and moisturise your face... all at a pretty good price too, what isn't to love? 

Let's Talk: Jeffree Star Cosmetics + Androgyny Palette & Swatches

I feel like Jeffree Star is a very marmite topic of conversation. People either like him and buy from him, or don't and have blacklisted him and his products. For a long time I firmly chose to not buy from him, I didn't want to support his actions - the same as everyone else really. 

But recently it has had me thinking... why?
