July Favorites

Hi everyone,
So as you can tell by the title, today's blog post is going to be my monthly favorites. July has honestly been my favorite month so far this year and I am still so excited for some more sun.

Real Techniques Makeup Brushes// As you may know I got these for my birthday and ever since I have been obsessed. I got the core collection for my birthday and I bought myself the expert face brush. My favorites have been... (From left to right on first picture)
- Buffing Brush
- Contour Brush
- Expert Face Brush

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation// If you follow my instagram you will know that I have had two dance shows in July and this foundation was my rescue. I don't wear foundation on a day to day basis but on special events this is my favorite to use. It just does so much but looks so natural and dewy.

MUA Prime and Conceal Palette// I bought this near the beginning of July and I have just fallen in love with it. I love the concept of having 4 different colored pigments to help counteract each problem that could possibly be on your face. I would really recommend this for any beginner.

MUA Lip liner in Red Drama// Again I don't wear lip liner every day (especially not red!) but again this was a necessity for my show. The pigmentation, staying power and price, you just can't go wrong. This was £1 and I need to go back and get some more everyday shades.

Skincare/ Body care
Montagne Jeunesse face masks// I have been obsessed with these. They are so affordable and are just great for a pamper night. This brand just works great with my skin. My favorite face masks are the mud ones, I am using the chocolate one at the moment.

Zoella Scrubbing me softly body scrub// I got this, again, for my birthday and I am in love with it. It is quite harsh but I only use this once maybe twice a week and I will have to repurchase it.

The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Body Butter// I have three body butters from the Body Shop but they are all different formulas and this is my favorite by far. This is only a mini but I need the full size because it is honestly just amazing.

Garneir Micellar Cleansing Water// This was 99p from home bargains, and since I really wanted to try it I bought the mini. everyone raves about this and I have to agree, it is a great makeup remover. I have nothing to compare it to as this is the first micellar water I have ever tried but I need more. Will deferentially need the full size.

Neutrogena hand cream// This has been a new discovery of mine as I had ran out of all my hand creams, so this was the first one I found that I was intrigued in. I wasn't expecting big things but WOW! this is great. It is very thick as it is medicated but every time I use this my hands just feel so soft.

Michael Kors watch// I got this as a joint birthday and doing well in my exams present and I am honestly so grateful I was bought this. I have worn this every day possible and I have had so many complements on it. I am just so in love with it.

Joma Jewelry Bracelet// For my birthday my best friend got me this bracelet and I am in love with it. I don't know if you can see by the picture but it is a little tree and silver. I have worn this non-stop since I got it. It goes with everything and just looks so cute.

 Soother// I actually lost my voice a few days before my birthday and for about a week I had a rusty voice, but I am all better now. Soothers were recommended to me for my throat and I am not saying they helped but I even eat them now as I have been that person that always has a sore throat. The blackcurrant are deferentially my favorite.

I will actually be doing a separate blog post on my summer playlist but my most recent favorites have been...
Love Me So - Stereo Kick
Chain - Nick Jonas
Do What You Like - Taio Cruz
I Don't Like It, I Love It - Flo Rida
Poison - Rita Ora
Shine - Years and Years
Waiting For Love - Avicii
The Way We Are - Alesha Dixon
We All Want The Same Thing - Rixton

Love Island// This month I have just been addicted to this show. It was on ITV and ran for six weeks. I managed to catch up a few weeks after it started and I have just fallen in love with each person in their. I can't even recommend you this program enough. It is not scripted but if you like shows like Gordie shore and TOWIE, you would love this.

Jake Boys and Emily-Victoria Canham // I have discovered both very recently but I just can't get enough of both their vlogs and main channel videos. They are honestly relationship goals and I feel like I know them even when I don't. If you ever need cheering up just watch both of their daily vlogs.

Years and Years// In case you didn't know I went to Radio City Live in Liverpool in July and Years and Years were performing. I liked a few of their songs but as soon as they came on stage I just felt and immediate connection. The lead singer Olly Alexander, looked so adorable on stage in a over-sized jumper and ice blonde hair and they sang three songs which were my three favorites. Now I am just going to buy all of their albums.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Leave a comment telling me any blog post ideas you have for the summer and hopefully I will try and upload more than once a week.
