July Favourites


Today, I have my July Favourites. I swear this month has just disappeared and all of a sudden it’s my birthday and I feel like I lost my last month of being 18!

This month has been really good in blog terms – I got double the views of last month! Thank you to anyone who follows me both here and on Twitter, I really appreciate it! I haven’t really been doing much this month, just working, but August will be the month of fun! I hope…

Anyway, here is what I’ve been loving in July!


Nivea Daily Essentials Moisturising Day Cream

This moisturiser has been my absolute favourite this month! I actually tried this and loved it a while ago but when it ran out, I bought a different one which isn’t even close to how good this one is so I had to switch back. It’s quite thick, which I really like, but sinks into the skin so quickly and leaves it feeling so soft. I’ve been using this before using primer.

Rimmel Fix and Perfect Primer

I think this is an all-time favourite and holy-grail product for me. This must be at least my fifth repurchase now and I haven’t found another primer that I like as much! Again, I really like the thick consistency and when I don’t wear it, I can definitely see the difference it makes with my make-up!

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade


My friend kindly gave me this as she wasn’t too keen on it. But I’m glad she wasn’t as I love it! It looks a bit daunting (blue!?) but I’ve found it’s given me such a subtle highlight which looks really pretty!

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

I know everyone has talked about this so if you haven’t tried it, give it a go and you’ll see why! I used this when it first came out and loved it. However, I think my eyelashes became immune to it and it stopped working as well. Is this even possible? I don’t know, but I gave it a break and now I’ve come back to it, it’s working it’s magic again! This makes my lashes look both long and full and I haven’t found another mascara that does this!

MAC Velvet Teddy and NYX Lip Liner in Nude


I’ve been wearing these two together a lot throughout July. Velvet Teddy is my favourite MAC lipstick. I think it really suites me and it’s quite a natural colour which I like. The NYX lip liner is almost a perfect match, too.

Garnier Volcano Face Mask

I wrote a post this month about Affordable Face Masks and this one came up top! I wrote a proper review in that post so if you’re interested give that a read, but I’ve stocked up on this so I have enough to last me for a while!

Jane’s Patisserie Mint Aero Rocky Road 

Both my mum and I are obsessed with Mint Aero and when I found this recipe, I had to make it! I’ve made one batch which we’ve just finished with another planned for later this week! This recipe made so many and it lasted us over a week. I’d recommend checking out this recipe as well as the many others on Jane’s Patisserie!

Gavin and Stacey

If you know me (or follow me on Twitter), you’ll probably know how much I love Gavin and Stacey. July was the month that Series 3 was re-added to Netflix and I’ve just been watching it on repeat. I could probably recite all of the dialogue to you and I just never get bored of it! The Christmas special has also been added and I’ve been watching that so much this month – it’s my favourite episode. As I said, it’s on Netflix so if you’ve never seen it, please give it a watch!

That concludes my July Favourites! Let me know what you’ve been loving this month!

I also wanted to apologise if the pictures aren’t the best at the moment. I’m currently redecorating my room so I’m temporarily in a different room and everything is a bit muddled! Hopefully it’ll all be back to normal soon. Home ware hauls and a bedroom makeover post to follow!
