July Favourites

 
 

Once again another month has flown by and has brought me to some rediscoveries of things I love. July hasn't been a month for beauty favourites but mainly a month of random things.

Beauty
You may have guessed that this would be in here as I have mentioned it in many blog posts already in July. I just love the Bourjois Colourboost Lip Crayon in 'Peach on the Beach' and  I think it is the perfect summer lip colour. The formula is amazing as it is moisturising and very smooth to apply and the pigmentation is great as well. I have also loved having glowing and bronzed cheeks, the Benefit Sum Beam has ticked all the boxes for me this month. It's so easy to apply and makes your cheeks gorgeously radiant.

Non-Beauty
As it is the summer holidays I have been reading a lot more than I usually would. My favourite book in July that I read has to be 'I've Got Your Number' by Sophie Kinsella. I found it hilarious and so cute, the characters were so intriguing and although the ending was kind of predictable and some things were quite unrealistic. Okay I should probably tell you the plot (no spoilers don't worry), it's about girl named Poppy who is engaged to a guy name Magnus, she loses the engagement ring (which was an expensive family ring) and on the same day loses her phone. But then somehow she finds a phone in the bin (that's the unrealistic bit) and the phone belonged to Violet who was someone called Sam's PA. So Poppy ends up reading all Sam's e-mails and gets to know more about him. Its a very easy read book and I really recommend it if you want to read a feel-good book.

For TV shows I have been really obsessed with Gossip Girl, the storyline is so hooking I can't stop watching it. I can't even begin to describe it because I know I won't do any good. But if you haven't seen it I highly recommend it.

Recently I have been trying to eat healthily and smoothies have been something that I have been making nearly everyday. My favourite smoothies are berry ones, they are so easy to make and delicious.
