♡ July Favorites

August 05, 2013

July has been a great month, not only has the weather in the UK been exceptional, but I've also discovered a handful of products that I've fallen head over heels for. 

1. Dove Nourishing oil care leave-in conditioning and care spray
I've been using this spray for 3 weeks now and I am completely in love. It can be used on either dry or wet hair and I've found it works wonderfully on both. I generally spray this into damp hair after washing to help de-tangle and when dried I find my hair is left really smooth and virtually frizz free. Even on my fine hair this doesn't weigh it down or make it at all greasy. It also smells incredible, I just can't get enough of this stuff. For only £3.59 I can't recommend this enough (and it's currently half price at Boots). 

2. Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon in Peach on the Beach
As evident from the battered packaging, I've been using this non stop recently. The formula is amazing, it can be built up for more of an intense look or applied lightly for quite a natural hint of coral. It's also quite glossy without being at all sticky. With added spf 15 it's also been perfect for the heatwave. 

3. Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover
Despite hearing endless hype surrounding this product i never really believed that it would work. It takes a little bit longer than 1 second but this stuff is amazing and is definitely quicker than using normal nail polish remover and cotton wool. The scent is also a lot better than normal remover, quite sweet with a hint of vanilla. Overall, it's made the whole process a lot more enjoyable and I will definitely repurchase. 

4. Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze
This one is a bit of a re-discovery (as you can most likely tell by the packaging!) as I've had it for quite a long time. With the recent heat I haven't been wanting to wear much make-up, especially not eye shadow, though this is perfect for a quick and effortless wash of colour that doesn't smudge or crease despite the temperature. The bronze colour is also gorgeous, it can be layered for quite an intense look but I prefer adding a small amount and blending it out for a more natural daytime look. 

5. Kiehl's Creme de Corps Body Butter
I've been using this twice a week as an intense treatment to nourish my skin and keep it in good condition. It feels so luxurious and smells amazing. Full review here.

  18. Hello Lovely!

    Ive used the Dove leave in intense hair treatment conditioner and I absoloutley love that! Do you think it is worth me purchasing the spray you mentioned as well? or as im already using the conditioner, It wont make much difference??

    Love you blog by the way! Im really glad that i stumbled upon it!
    Lots of love

    1. Thank you (:
      Yes definitely, i use both but find the spray is great as an immediate 'pick me up' as you can use it on dry hair if it's looking a bit worse for wear (:

  19. Gorgeous pictures, I've definitely been loving my colour tattoo eyeshadow too, it lasts so well especially as I get super oily eyelids :-)

  20. I like that you focused so much on the interpersonal aspects of growing a brand. One of the really tricky things to get across to new bloggers (without seeming like a jerk) is that it’s still all about reaching out to other people–you’re not just drawing people to you like some glowing beacon for internet moths, you’re going out there and communicating with them.
