Hey everyone, I hope you’re all doing well and welcome to my blog. So as July has quickly come to an end, I thought I would do my monthly favourites because my last one seemed to do quite well so I thought I would do them monthly. July has been such a busy month as it was my birthday towards the end and I booked my first holiday abroad so more than likely, there are going to be a lot of favourites this month, these will be ranging from beauty, skincare and clothing and some other bits and bobs. I really hope you enjoy, if you do, make sure to give this a like and feel free to leave a comment because I love receiving feedback, also, if your interested in reading more from me, give my blog a follow, I’m aiming to get to 200 followers by the end of August.
As I mentioned in my June favourites I was waiting for my passport to arrive and finally it came at the start of July which was so exciting because finally I am able to leave the country whoop whoop! After a long time of looking, me and my boyfriend decided to book a short city break to Rome and I am so blooming excited, Italy is so beautiful and I can’t want to be able to explore it. I am also planning a trip on January to Berlin which is really exciting so my passport will be one of my favourites for a very long time.
MAC Liquid Lipstick shade Burnt Spice
I’ve never tried a MAC product in my life and my boyfriend brought me one of their lip colours for my birthday which was also this month so I may as well mention that. After first using it I was in love, I’ve wanted this Lipstick for as long as I can remember in the exact shade, It is the perfect nude lip colour and I can definitely see the difference between a high end and drugstore. I posted a review on this Lipstick on my blog a couple days ago so if you’re interested in giving it a read. have a read of my most recent blog posts.
Another present that I got from my boyfriend for my birthday was a Pandora bracelet which I am extremely grateful for and it is so beautiful. I’ve wanted a Pandora Bracelet for the longest time and to finally have one is amazing. The main reason I wanted to have a Pandora Bracelet is because you can purchase charms that can mean something to you and I find that really special, I’m already planning on purchasing a passport or plane charm when I go abroad which would look so so cute.
Rainbow Top from Zara
There’s this top that I’ve wanted from Zara for the longest time but I could never find it anywhere and when I finally did, it wasn’t in my size until my birthday when I was able to find this specific top in my size I was over the moon. I’ve been wanting to experiment with clothes for a while and I wanted to add a pop of colour to my wardrobe and I find this top so flattering, I love it.
If you didn’t grasp already, I am obsessed with skincare and knowing I have a good skincare routine makes me really happy and is really important. For my birthday I got a Simple Skincare travel kit which is really handy as I’m going away in a month but I also love skincare products especially their toner and moisturiser. The moisturiser soothes your skin out and the toner cleanses your skin and you can really feel the nourishment and it is so affordable too. If your looking for a good skincare range to check out I’d 10/10 recommend this.
Highlighter has come back around to becoming my favourite skincare product. Last year I was obsessed with highlighter and I’ve started to again this year. I feel it really adds to a makeup look especially in the summer and there’s no harm in wearing too much highlighter is there? My favourite highlighter at the moment is the one out of the Freedom Highlight and contour palette which has almost ran out so if you have any highlighter recommendations, let me know in the comments.
I’ve been loving Instagram recently and also shooting photos for my blog, its been so fun! I’ve gone up by 300 followers this month and i’m so insanely happy with that, I’ve also changed up my theme to suit my personality more and I’m so in love with it. By the end of August I want to hit 1,000, I know that sounds so optamistic but I’d love to reach 1k before I go to Rome. If your interested in checking out my Instagram, my username is chlolaurenn21.
I know this is a really really weird one but I’ve became obsessed with raspberries, before this month started, I’d never tried raspberries before and I’m now obsessed and I love how good they are for you! They even taste like sweets! If your looking for a really nutritional fruit, I’d really recommend these but you’ve probably already tried them. And that is the end to my monthly favourites, let me know in the comments what your favourite thing was this month, I’d love to know. Thank you so much for taking the time to read and until next time x
