This June and July…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I have combined the past two months favourites together into one post as I was a bit delayed on Junes favourites. It has been a great couple of months. There has barely been a weekend where I have not been doing something and I think the rest of the year will be the same what with weddings and birthdays. All very exciting!

Anyway I shall stop chatting on and get on with the main event:

Beauty

There are a few beauty items to share with you this month. I shall start with the make up items as there are a few more of those than skincare!

It took me ages to find a concealer that worked for me and finally I have in the Maybelline The Eraser Eye. All other ones I have tried just dried my skin out. I have seen this recommended by so many bloggers and have tried to buy it so many times but it appears it is extremely popular and I could never get it in my shade (light). Finally I have it in my clutches and it is as good as I hoped. It has a creamy texture which blends in perfectly under my foundation.

One of my main issues in summer, especially with sun cream being used in excess, is shiny skin. I have dry skin by nature but in summer it gets that little bit more oily especially through out the day. Soap and Glorys One Heck of a Blot is perfect for getting rid of that shine and it is perfect for popping in your bag with the addition of a mirror too!

Two items that I go back to every day when doing my make up is the Maxfactor Creme Puff Blush in Seductive Pink and the Benefit Roller Lash Mascara. The Blush is a perfect colour and so easy to apply. It really gives your cheeks a lovely flushed colour and I hear it is a great dupe for the famous Hourglass blushes. The Roller Lash seems to have mixed reviews but I personally love it. I think it is great for those with long lashes as it really exentuates them.

As for skincare items I have narrowed down to two that I love.

The Yes to.. range has really become popular and I personally opt for the Yes to Carrots for my dry skin. I love the day moisturiser. It feels so silky on the skin and leaves my skin perfectly hydrated.

My final beauty product is the Korres Wild Rose Exfoliating Cleanser. This is great for giving your skin a weekly cleanse. It can be used more regularly but I like to use it once a week to get rid of any impurities. It really works and smells great too.

Fashion

Two items have been at the top of my list these past two months. Both are from H&M and are perfect for summer. One is a soft black playsuit that is flattering and extremely comfortable which can be worn day or night!

My second item is a soft and loose mint green top (my favourite colour at the moment) which can be paired with skinny jeans and is perfect for a casual day look. Again it is so comfortable!

H&M is a really affordable brand and I love the quality.

Jewellery 

I have been on the search for more jewellery lately and seem to have found a few good pieces. Unfortunately one item (A selection of rose gold necklaces) cannot be shown as I have misplaced them (typical me).

The other items however are a necklace and bracelet. Both from Accessorize and both equally pretty. I have been pairing them with my new fashion pieces and they go perfectly.

Food and Drink

I am only going to talk about one item in this category as if I talked about all the food I have eaten and liked I would be here all day. I am a massive lover of tea tho and one I always go for is Pukka teas. Their Supreme Matcha Green is a lovely Green tea and tastes amazing as well as being very healthy for you!

Read

I have not finished this book yet but as soon as I picked it up I could not stop reading. I am nearly finished it and have found it inspiring and brilliant. Wild should be a must read for all. Cheryl Strayed really takes you on her journey along the PCT as well as her personal journey. It has made me want to go on a hike and see the world more. As well as that it reminds you to be grateful for what you have and appreciate all around.

Well thats it for these past two months! There are plenty of things I love but this is a snippet of those.

What have you been loving?
