Summer Essentials

Happy Friday!

We are well and truly into summer now (supposedly!) so I wanted to share a couple of my ‘essentials’/ favourite things for this time of the year. If you enjoy these types of posts then definitely check out my¬†Spring Essentials¬†and¬†Holiday Essentials¬†to hear about a few other bits and pieces that have become essentials for me. Today’s post includes a bit of everything from body care to clothing so I hope you enjoy it, here they are:

  • Jewellery:¬†Obviously you can get through summer without jewellery BUT it might not be as instagrammable! My FAVE piece of summer jewellery is anklets because I don’t really get to show off my ankles any other time of the year! Accessorize do really nice ones or if you’re feeling creative you can make some cute ones like friendship bracelets! Other pretty jewellery that I think gets to shine in the summer is necklaces, either a little dainty one with a bardot top or a statement necklace with a plain dress for the evenings! Summer is definitely the perfect time to get into jewellery!
  • Sandals:¬†One of my favourite summer fashion items is the sandals, the couple of months a year where we can show of our perfect pedicures! I love a whole LOAD of sandals and mainly get mine from New Look because they have a large range and the pricing is usually pretty good. My favourite coloured sandals is probably tan because it isn’t as harsh as black ones against my pale skin and I think the brown ones go with any outfit.
  • Vaseline:¬†You might be thinking this is a bit of an odd one… and you’d be right! BUT give it a chance. In the summer I use Vaseline on my eyelashes before I go to sleep because it really helps condition them and just improve their appearance. Obviously you can do this all year round but I mainly do this during summer because I can’t really bare mascara when it’s warm! I like to keep my lips moisturised too but use a lip balm for that- I think that these little things help me feel a little better about wearing less make-up in the summer… mainly because it sweats right off.
  • Body Mists:¬†Smelling good should ALWAYS be a priority and even more so in summer. I’m currently using the PINK body mists and have been for a while because they are so difficult to finish! I use to love the Hollister ones but they discontinued my favourite scent… I am still a bit gutted about this. I LOVE a nice fruity, floral mist in the summer and these scents usually end up reminding you of summer memories, which I love!

Hopefully you’ve enjoyed reading this post and it has maybe reminded you of a couple of essentials you might have forgotten about this summer. I do use most of these products throughout the year but they definitely get used A LOT more throughout the warmer months.

Enjoy the sun,

Amy

August: Collective Haul

Happy Monday!

After a bit of retail therapy throughout the month I thought I would post my first haul post! These are probably my favourite posts to read BUT for the sake of my bank account I’m going to limit my own ‘haul-ing’ to maximum once a month! Another thing that I want to do with my hauls is have a follow up post with maybe one or two products because despite my LOVE for hauls sometimes you never hear their further thoughts- so in the following weeks definitely come back for more on these products! Here’s a bit of what I’ve been buying this month:

  • Boot’s Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Spot Wand, ¬£4.49: If you’ve read my¬†Blushing about‚Ķ Skincare¬†post then you’ll know I have oily, spot-prone skin and was trying a Body Shop oil to target my blemishes. I used it for a few months but haven’t seen significant results from that specific product (I still like other products from that skincare routine!) so decided to give this a go! I’ve used this range from Boots in the past but then turned to The Body Shop, hopefully this dual-ended wand will make my skin smooth!
  • Boot’s Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Pore and Facial Strips:¬†I can’t help but LOVE seeing people peel off nose strips… bit gross I know so wanted to have a go myself! I think they can give more noticeable results than face masks too. Hopefully this will work with the spot wand to help me feel better with my skin whilst not drying it out too much.
  • LUSH R&B Hair Moisturiser, ¬£11.95:¬†I’ve wanted to look try some LUSH haircare for a while and with the humidity I thought now is as good a time as ever!
  • Maybelline¬†Superstay 7 Day Nails in Nude Rose, ¬£4.49:¬†As you might have seen in my¬†Basic Girls Guide to: Nails¬†I am VERY Barry M focused when it comes to nails but recently I’ve found that the shade range doesn’t always have what I’m looking for. I still love them but I wanted more nude-y, sophisticated and subtle colours so I had a look at other brands and found this one which is a perfect pinky colour.
  • Maybelline¬†Superstay 3D Gel Effect Plumping Top Coat, ¬£5.99:¬†I have been using the Barry M Plumpy top coat for a while but it’s started to go VERY gloopy and made bubbles on my nails! So I wanted to give a new one a try which hopefully will have more longevity.

This month I’ve tried to resist much make-up purchases just because I’ve been fairly satisfied with the products I have and wanted to focus on trying to target other areas like my spots- which hopefully in turn will help my make-up sit more smoothly! I hope this has provided some inspiration for your shopping list… although I’m sure you don’t need any haha!

Comment below your favourite purchase this month!

Summer Drugstore 5 Product Face

Happy Monday!

I’m going to start the week by sharing 5 pieces of make-up that together create a really, REALLY minimal look which will be perfect for a nice summer picnic, lazy days or just when it is TOO hot! Most of the time this ‘5 product face’ is my go-to because even though I LOVE buying make-up and reading ALL the reviews, watching videos etc. I’m not as adventurous as I would like to be. Also most days I tend to choose sleep over full on glam so these 5 products I turn to when I’m already running late during the summer months… Here they are:

  • Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer, ¬£7.99:¬†I tend to choose this concealer in the summer because it is quite light, easy to blend and brightening. It helps give a healthy boost to the skin, instead of caking up! For most of the year I tend just to use it under my eyes but in summer I use it pretty much everywhere because ¬†it is so lightweight and gives a natural finish.
  • Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in 002 Pink Blossom, ¬£3.99: ¬†Powder is essential for me because I GLOW and not in a good way… more like a hot mess kind of way. So this really is necessary and it’s honestly the only one I’ve tried! It adds a hint of colour whilst blending seamlessly with the concealer to give me a comfortable amount of coverage and most importantly it keeps me matte… well it gives it a good try!
  • Rimmel Brow this Way Gel in Clear, ¬£3.99:¬†I’ve talked about this already quite a bit BUT I would 10/10 recommend in a minimal look especially! It just makes it look like I’ve made an effort with my brows when I completely haven’t- which it what I try to achieve with the whole look!
  • Seventeen Bronze Shimmer Brick:¬†Unfortunately, I think this has been discontinued so you could replace this step with any other bronzer! I think that this adds some colour to your face and I use it REALLY lightly mainly around my forehead and slightly on the cheekbones. I know that Rimmel have bought out a similar product recently, Revlon and Soap& Glory also have ones so it might be worth trying them out to create a similar shimmery bronzed look.
  • Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey, ¬£7.99:¬†This balm REALLY works for summer because of the moisturising formula which ends up drying into a stain to give your lips a lovely healthy look. This is a nude-y pinky shade which is very flattering and can be built up to create a slightly more bolder lip.

Hopefully these products have given you some inspiration for when you want some make-up but quickly and naturally! You can either use these products as a base for a more striking look by adding mascara or contour, and it can be adapted for different times of the year by changing the lip colour or swapping the bronzer for blush- so it is  very versatile look!

Let me know if you have any bronzer recommendations as mine has been discontinued and your favourite go-to product for if you’re in a rush!

Beauty Products I Regret Buying

Happy Monday!

I LOVE reading and watching people’s ‘Products I Regret Buying’ and ‘YouTube Made Me Buy It’ posts, so I thought I would share some of the products that I will not be buying again. Blogs and YouTube are obviously all about sharing the good products but I think it can be just as worthwhile seeing what to steer clear of too. I’ve already posted a¬†Hits and Misses: Concealer Edition¬†and a¬†Hits and Misses: Mascara Edition¬†which you can check out to see what concealers and mascara’s I regret buying. Here I am going to share some other beauty bits that I wouldn’t re-purchase/ shouldn’t have bought the first time:

  • Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara, ¬£5.90:¬†I know some people have really liked this product, but it made my eyebrows all crispy! The wand shape was really strange because it is really rounded and I just don’t think that worked on my brows. The colour also seemed to clump on some of my brow hairs so there was an uneven distribution- which I think was because of the weird brush shape! It just simply didn’t work for me and I much prefer the Rimmel Brow This Way Gel, which I now use in clear because this Maybelline one really put me off using coloured brow gels in the future.
  • KIKO Kiss Balms:¬†I couldn’t find these on the website now BUT there are some lip balms that look suspiciously similar just in different packaging- I haven’t tried them though so I can’t comment. However, I’ve tried multiple Kiss Balms when I was younger I was really drawn in by the cute name and packaging. They were very strange though because they are so oily, like after one use the stick would go down SO much- I could have used to0 much but you needed to in order to¬†build up the colour. They did contain A LOT of glitter, not just shimmer, which was the look I was more into (lol) but this was one of the reasons I got rid of ALL of these and would definitely not recommend them… unless glittery, oily lips are your thing.
  • Max Factor Excess Shimmer in Copper, ¬£7.99:¬†Now this cream shade is not THE worst, but it just didn’t do much and for almost ¬£8 at the drugstore I expected a lot more. I bought this after loving the Maybelline 24hour Colour Tattoo’s and was on a real cream shadow hype, but this wasn’t half as good. It’s a lot more of a gel consistency which kind of creased more on my eyelids and although it blended well, it tended to blend into quite a sheer colour which was not what I expected. Sometimes on a really natural day I pop this on but very rarely and I think I could have¬†spent my money better elsewhere and stuck with the Maybelline ones.
  • Bourgeois Rouge Edition Velvet in ‘Happy Nude Year’, ¬£8.99:¬†I really wanted to love these and would like to try the Aqua ones, but the matte ones were not enjoyable. They really wore off in a weird way that made my lips looks so strange, they created the white line thing- I don’t know if other people get this with matte liquid lipsticks?! Basically, it is not a good look- 10/10 do not recommend. If you are more use to the feeling of wearing this type of lip product you might enjoy these but for someone pretty new to this, it was not an enjoyable experience.

Hopefully you enjoyed this post, obviously these products might work differently on you and I am CLEARLY not an expert so it could just be me using them wrong!

See you for another post on Wednesday at 10am,

Hits and Misses: Concealer Edition

Happy Friday!

Today’s post is about EVERYTHING concealer. I don’t know why I have a thing for concealer but it’s definitely one of my favourite beauty products. I think it’s one of the single products that can instantly change your face and make it look like I’ve made an effort. I’ve included 5 that I’ve tried that really stand out to me as either a successful hit or more of an ineffective miss. There are some other concealers that I’ve given a try that I didn’t feel particularly passionate about either way, like Rimmel’s ‘Wake Me Up’ I feel like that’s a bit in-between. So here are 5 concealers that I think REALLY fit each category:

Concealer Hits:

  • Collection Lasting Perfection, ¬£4.19:¬†Don’t worry I won’t bore you with more talk about this product because there is probably not much to say about it that you haven’t heard before. Just know that I think it’s worth the hype and I find it to be best at covering spots, bit cake-y for me under my eyes. Like an annoying ex, I can’t help but always go back to this one.
  • Bourjois Radiance Reveal, ¬£7.99:¬†I love this, the packaging is SO cute as well… not that it’s super necessary but just fyi. Great for under the eyes because it brightens but isn’t too thick that it creases. One of the few products I’ve found that literally gives an instant lift under the eyes and I really don’t see myself looking for a new brightening concealer for a long time, it’s become a staple for me.
  • Seventeen Stay Time, ¬£4.49:¬†I’ve not seen a lot of people talking about this product but it was one of the first concealers I bought and I really liked it! If I’m being honest I do use the Collection concealer much more BUT I wanted to include this one to give people an alternative, which is of a very similar quality. The main difference I found is it is less coverage than the ‘Lasting Perfection’, so this could be the perfect one if you don’t have many blemishes or are a bit wary of a potentially cake-y look.

Concealer Misses:

  • Maybelline Eraser Eye, ¬£8.99:¬†Potentially a bit of a controversial one… I’m crazy like that. The main reason this is a ‘miss’ for me is the shading! It is SO orange. I am very pinky-toned… like my blog name suggests, so it looks awful on me and by the time I’ve blended it enough to match my skin tone the coverage seems to completely disappear. So you’re probably thinking I bought the wrong shade BUT there are only 5 options in the UK and I went for the shade ‘light’, because I’m pale, so there really was limited choice and I just simply think this product does not do my shade. I bought this a while ago when I think there were about 3 Shades so maybe the new ones will be more suitable for me. The formula probably has potential and I don’t mind the weird sponge applicator, it is literally the sheer orange-ness to it which does absolutely nothing for me.
  • Maybelline Cover Stick, ¬£3.99:¬†I don’t know if people are still into this concealer, but I used it before and really hated it. Just completely cake central on all my spots. It didn’t even conceal, it just made it SO obvious that I had tried to hide my spots but completely failed. It is thick, cake-y and made me agree to never stray from creamier liquid concealer again.

Hopefully you’ve enjoyed this post and it has given some inspiration for your¬†shopping list this weekend! What are your favourite concealers, as you can see I’m always in the mood to try new concealers, so would love your recommendations.¬†

Have a lovely weekend,

Summer Luxury Lust List

Another day, another Lust List post… I just can’t help myself at the moment! Last week I did my¬†Summer Drugstore Lust List¬†so it’s only fair that I get to share a higher end one too. I find with the more luxurious ones the products stay on the list for A LOT longer, so they can get quite long and include more staple products that I’ve never had the chance to use. Here are a couple of the new additions this Summer:

  • Urban Decay’s The Heat Palette, ¬£39.50:¬†This new release looks LOVELY with a really nice mix of mattes and shimmers! Usually when I see this palettes there seems to be random colours, but this one seems to have the most wearable shades for a less adventurous eyeshadow wearer like myself. They’re all very amber-y with deep pinks, browns and oranges (it looks nicer than it sounds!).
  • Kylie Cosmetic’s Vacation Collection:¬†I feel like every single new release Kylie does I’m really drawn in by… I think it’s the snapchats of all the products that really get me into it! In this collection the main products I would love to try are the ‘Send me Nudes’ Velvet Lips, the Ultra powder highlighters and either the contour kit or the ‘Wet Set’ of highlighters. Everything looks really glow-y and summery, I just don’t know if that level of glow would suit my tomato skin tone during the rainy British Summer… but a girl can dream haha.
  • ¬†Benefit Box O’Powders Cheek Parade Palette, ¬£49.50:¬†I’ve already used a few Benefit powders because I got a similar set for Christmas a few years ago. BUT that has not stopped my lusting after this one. This new set comes with ‘GALifornia’ and the ‘Hoola Lite’ which I haven’t tried, they look SO lovely and like they would suit my pale complexion. I already know I love some of the other powders in this collection… so maybe this one will make it off the list and into my collection.
  • NARS Liquid Blush in Orgasm, ¬£23.00:¬†I’m really having a thing for blusher at the moment and this is a ‘cult’ blush straight away. I love creamy, liquid blush because it is so natural and lovely to apply! The packaging for this is SO classy as well, so it would look fancy too. I’d consider trying the ‘Multiple’ stick too but when I saw the liquid one I thought it really is something different and a bit more unique.
  • Tom Ford Double Decked Eyeshadow, ¬£48.00:¬†The price of this is just crazy BUT it’s like nothing I’ve seen before. It has a cream shadow and a matching really shimmery powdery one too. I’ve seen it on YouTube, it looks just divine and is a really, really good innovative idea… unless there is something like this! I think this will be a lifelong list item though because it SOOO much money for an eyeshadow, like my Mum would probably faint if I told her about the price of this haha.

Hopefully this has given you some inspiration or just helped you indulge in all this luxurious make-up without having to spend so much money. I see these like little therapy sessions and then I try and move on… until the next season comes around!

Comment below¬†what products are on you Luxury Make-up Lust List and if you’ve tried any of the products on mine!

Drugstore Starter Kit

Today’s post isn’t going to be the typical Drugstore Starter Kit because I thought it would be useful to recommend a brand under each title rather than a specific item. This is a different way of writing a ‘Starter Kit’ post because it gives people the freedom to look within a brand and decipher their own preferences within make-up, rather than me just listing products… which I’ll probably do in the future! Whether you’re new to make-up, visiting the UK and want to try some products or you’re just on the hunt for something new then hopefully this post will help! It might be a long one, so I hope you’re sitting comfortably:

Foundation, L’Oreal:¬†This brand has a wide variety of foundations and alphabet creams to be tried- this is why it deserves to be looked into when searching for that starter foundation. Personally, I like the ‘Infallible Matte’ foundation for a full coverage and ‘True Match’ is another very popular foundation to go for too for a more natural finish.

Concealer, Bourjois: Obviously, the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer deserves a shoutout here BUT for a brand I would say Bourjois. The Radiance Reveal concealer is one of my favourites and is perfect for lifting under the eyes. Also the Healthy Mix Concealer looks really lovely, but I am yet to try it but it is on my Summer Drugstore Lust List.

Powder, Rimmel:¬†Stay Matte Powder. There isn’t much more to say is there? I haven’t tried any other powders BUT that’s because I don’t really know what more I could want from a powder. It keeps shine away AND adds some coverage, whilst not breaking the bank- win, win.

Blusher, Sleek:¬†I contemplated putting Bourgeois again but they’ve had their time to shine… so if you can’t find a Sleek blusher to tickle your fancy then try them! Sleek do powder blushers, cream AND palettes- they’ve got it ALL. Sometimes the shades look a little outrageous but, from the selection I’ve tried, they’re very blendable and look seamless on your face. My favourite is the shade ‘Rose Gold’ which is apparently a dup for Nar’s infamous Orgasm blush.

Eyebrows, Soap and Glory:¬†I think they do one of the most extensive eyebrow ranges in the drugstore through their ‘Brow Archery’ range. They have a lot of different nibs and I think they’re the best quality out of my collection. If not then second place is Rimmel simply because of their ‘Brow this Way’ gels… but these products have their own post coming soon so you’ll have to come back to hear more about these!

Cream Eyeshadows, Maybelline:¬†I’ve tried a few different cream eyeshadows because they’re my favourite way to add colour to your lids with the ‘Maybelline Colour Tattoos’ being the best! They’re really creamy, last on your eyes and blend really easily with my favourite shade being ‘On and On Bronze’.

Eyeshadow Palettes, Revolution:¬†Honestly, I’m not very well up on eyeshadow palettes BUT I’ve tried one from Revolution and I really liked it! I think it was the Iconic 3 one which are based on the Urban Decay Naked palettes.

Mascara, Maybelline: This was probably the easiest choice for me because Maybelline have LOADS of mascaras to suit any of your eyelash needs. My favourite has to be the Lash Sensational because it gives full lashes without clumping- I have talked more about Maybelline mascara in my Hits and Misses: Mascara Edition.

Lipsticks, KIKO:¬†Alright, you can’t buy it in Boots or Superdrug BUT I love them. They’re all I use BUT my favourite Smart Lipsticks have been discontinued… Why does this always happen to me? SO I am going to find some drugstore alternatives, so stay posted whilst I search for some lip choices. If you do get a chance to go to KIKO though I would recommend their lipsticks, if they’re anything like their old ones then you’ll LOVE them.¬†

Hopefully this post gave you some drugstore inspiration and an insight to some of my favourite products. I have left out primer because I haven’t found one that I could honestly recommend, so I usually just moisturise before, and I don’t use eyeliner… I just don’t trust myself with make-up THAT close to my eyes. You might notice Bronzer and Highlighter are missing too because I have not found any that are either still around or that I like.

Please comment below any recommendations for any products that I have missed out- especially Bronzer and Highlighter!

My Skincare Saviour

This product is my ALL TIME FAVOURITE skincare find. Literally, my ride or die. NUMBER ONE, nothing else I’ve tried has come close. Who knew someone could get so passionate about a cleanser… turns out I’m that girl.

Without further ado here it is… Soap and Glory’s Peaches and Clean Deep Cleansing Milk *the crowd goes wild!*¬†I’ve barely heard anyone else talk about this product, so hopefully this will give it some of the hype it deserves.

FullSizeRender.jpg Soap and Glory Peaches and Clean £8.00

I’m on my second bottle and have been using it for about 3 years, so I feel qualified to give it a complete review. It is clearly labelled for all skin types and as my skin has changed throughout my teenage years it really has helped at every stage! During the past couple of years where I have delved more and more into skincare this product has been a staple and has remained in my routine whilst I change other products around it- the other products can be seen in my¬†Blushing about‚Ķ Skincare¬†post.

So why is it so good? WELL, it lathers perfectly- with the texture being a creamy milk which massages seamlessly into every pore and surface of your face. If you spend a bit of extra time deeply massaging your face with this then the results will definitely be amplified. The smell is really nice too, peachy… not a surprise! I use it as a make-up remover too, but its cleansing qualities are what really makes it for me. Even after one use your skin feels SO SO much cleaner, it looks a lot clearer too with noticeable results, and I was always grabbing this after a long day. It clears out your pores insanely and definitely helps with the improvement of spots- obviously it doesn’t eradicate them, but it doesn’t claim to.

Overall, I would REALLY recommend this product and if you have a similar oily/combination, spot prone skin to me then this should really help! This is the only skincare product I completely swear by, I think I am getting there with my ‘Tea Tree Toner’ from the Body Shop though but I can’t be completely sure yet. I really hope this product works as well on other peoples skin as it did on my own- keep going with it though because I have snubbed other products without giving them a real go… I’m just impatient haha!

Have you tried this product? Definitely comment any other skincare products below- I’m in the need for a good, oil-free moisturiser if you know of any!

Summer Drugstore Lust List

Happy Monday!

My shopping addiction has REALLY got going recently! Unfortunately, I have to try and resist… so I’m going to try and fulfil the need by delving into another Lust List. I’ve written one a couple of months ago that was focussed on high end make-up, don’t worry I’m still lusting after all of that still. Over the last couple of months I am loving some of the new releases on the highstreet, whilst pining over some older products that I’ve not got round to trying. I’ve narrowed it down to five products that have caught my eye, hopefully they’ll all make it into my collection one day:

  • Real Techniques PowderBleu Collection:¬†Don’t you think these look lovely?! I mean I’m not completely sure on how different they will apply in comparison to the core collection… BUT I’m a sucker for pretty packaging. They’re so fancy and out of the collection I think I would probably go for the ‘Soft Powder Brush’ which is priced at ¬£22, it looks a good brush for an all over bronze.
  • Bourjois Healthy Mix Collection:¬†I’d love to try the concealer and powder because I always hear great reviews about these products. I like the idea of it being beneficial for your skin whilst covering any flaws, I’ve also heard people say that it is natural and lightweight.
  • NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, ¬£6:¬†NYX is a big mystery brand to me, as I am yet to try ANY of their products! Since launching in the UK I have been meaning to though and these lip products seem like the best place to start because they appear very popular. I would need to look at them in real life to determine which shade is the best, a mauve-y nude is my go to, but they’re definitely a product I’m looking to try soon!
  • Soap and Glory Solar Powder Bronzer, ¬£11:¬†This product has been a staple for many people for a while but I have resisted and I’m not really sure why! It has a slight sheen to it but is far from shimmery and the pan mixes two shades of bronzer. It seems like the perfect bronzer for summer, something I am yet to find!
  • Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blusher, ¬£6.99:¬†This one doesn’t get as much hype as other products, but it has always managed to catch my eye! I tried a gel blush before and loved the natural finish, so would definitely love to try a creamy one. The colours seem quite vibrant in the pan but I’m guessing they look prettier on your skin! They’re so cute and tiny too- perfect for travelling!

There are so many products at the drugstore that look so lovely at the moment, I’m sure this list will continue to change throughout summer! Let me know what products you’re lusting after recently and if you think I should give some of these a try!

June Favourites 2017

Happy Friday!

I will try not to do the typical ramble about how quickly June has gone… but know that I REALLY can’t believe it is almost July! We’re halfway to Christmas, my FAVOURITE time of the year! Anyway, here are my monthly favourites including a little bit of everything this time:

  • LUSH D’Fluff Shaving Soap, ¬£5.95:¬†Summer= CONSTANT shaving to keep my skin summer-ready. I’ve found this improves the process slightly with the refreshing strawberry scent and
  • Rimmel¬†Stay Matte Powder, ¬£3.99:¬†This was part of my¬†Drugstore Minimal Make-up¬†look and, even more so this June, it has become a real STAPLE. We’ve had a heatwave in the UK at the moment and I CANNOT cope, so this helps to try and save my shiny forehead… it’s a big task but I think this powder gives it a good go.
  • Barry M Passionfruit Gelly Nail Pain, ¬£3.99:¬†I usually have a nail polish favourite and this month is no exception! For me, this is the PERFECT coral shade and pops a tan like crazy. It’s a perfect summer toe shade that co-ordinates well with pretty much all of my outfits and sandals.
  • Bardot Tops:¬†These have definitely been a favourite this month! They make summer clothes more bearable for a body-conscience gal. I find they cover me up but keep me cool- the perfect formula. I’ve found most of my favourites are from New Look, mainly online because in-store I was not as impressed!
  • Love Island:¬†One of my FAVOURITE tv shows has returned this month and I am loving it. I am completely addicted. I’m hoping most of you will already be watching it, but if you haven’t then you really need to give it a try especially if you’re a reality show junkie like me! My favourites at the moment are Marcel and Gabby, but they change daily because the show is so fast-paced and people can instantly become unlikable.

Let me know what’ve you been loving in the comments below!
