July favourites

Woooooo my first favourites, how exciting! I've been at home a lot this month so I've been loving loads.

Make up:
Garnier Miracle Skin Perfecter BB cream 

I remember saying that I would never jump aboard the BB boat, but I have to say that this stuff is good. I wore my Estee Lauder DoubleWear Light yesterday and it was rubbish in comparison. This gives me a dewy glow with a decent amount of coverage, and it works well with my concealers to banish blemishes and dark circles.






Max Factor Masterpiece Max Mascara
I used to love this, and then I became poor and couldn't afford it's £9.99 price tag for a while. I decided to splurge on it recently as I had an interview for Max Factor and it is as good as I remember it to be. It separates the lashes, builds volume, and I can add crazy layers to create some really pretty lashes. The small brush means that it's great for my spindly lower lashes as well. I love love love this.



MUA Blusher in Lolly
This is a lovely blush, it's a pretty colour, highly pigmented and gives me a great glow without being too pink. The coral-y tone looks great for the summer and it's a definite winner for me.




Skincare:
The Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream 
I've been using this for ages now, and I'm still on my original tube. I'm talking like, 5 months maybe? It's super good. It's also great for really sensitive skin because of it's kind ingredients. This means that when I remembered to wax my mini tache (yes yes I know) the other night, I didn't feel instant stinging pain the moment I applied my moisturiser, because I used this first. Yep. It's an eye cream that doubles as upper lip cream. Interesting.




Body:
Roger and Gallet Fleur d'Osmanthus Shower Gel This is so not me but it was a leaving present from a child and his Mum, and I actually love it. It's almost got a manly smell, but the scent lingers for ages and I just love it. It's soap free and really gentle, so it's a winner for me.


Bling:
Stretch bracelet by Lipsy
This is just so cute and pretty and it looks great with a tan. Even though I don't have one.


Clothes:
Spotty dress from H&M I probably tried on every single black dress in Swindon to find this beauty. I needed something interview appropriate and everything I tried on made me look like a whale at a funeral. This, however, is flattering, it's a great length and it's just perfect for smart occasions. I wore it with tights, a new cardigan, 2 rose gold rings and these booties from New Look.

Food:
Pitta bread! I am in love with these, grilled. Yes yes they're good with hummus and cream cheese and all that but they're great on their own and they satisfy my carb cravings.

Human:
Tanya Burr I watch and read a lot. Like a lot. But recently I've been going back through Tanya's old posts and she is just lovely. She is perky and cheerful and her recent holiday photos from Cannes made me swoon a little. Love love love.

Thank you so much for reading about what I've been loving. What are some things that you have been loving this month?
