5 Favourite Things | July

I can’t believe it’s August already but…I can’t wait for Autumn/Winter clothes!

(Shop Here)

I have a new post up for you all and I thought since you liked it so much before that I’d let you know my July faves! I have way more but I just wanted to show you my top 5..

First off I wanted to start with a clothing item because, well…I love clothes!

It has to have been my most worn item of my summer wardrobe. I wore this maxi to the beach ( abroad obviously!!!) to work, on nights out and even to my sons birthday party. Throw it on no matter what state the legs are in and you are done! Such easy dressing, which is what summer time should be about.

Bobbie brown shimmer brick compact in Rose.

Because of doing a lot of travelling during the summer, be it buying or holiday, I always try to keep my make up bag to a minimum and that’s why this is such a must-have for me.
It can be used on eyes, cheeks, lips, as a highlighter and I’ve even come up with a few extra uses for it… A shimmer brick is a necessity for every make -up bag.
I particularly love this Rose colour as I have found it takes me through all seasons.

Hard to admit this but I have been only recently introduced to gel eyeliner and feel for that reason I had to include it.
I am using it more subtly during the summer months but have already got more confidence and know I’ll be lashing it on now that it is officially autumn. I have tried loads of brands but particularly love this one. The set comes with Black and Sepia Ink and a Mini Ultra Fine Eyeliner Brush. It takes a bit of perfecting so all tips are welcome but the results are worth it.

I got this beautiful nail polish as a gift at the start of the summer and it has been in my hand bag ever since because it always on me! The colour is 617 Holiday and it is stunning. It lasts forever and goes with almost everything. Such a great pressie! Love it!

When my whole family decided to host our third annual summer cooking competition the stakes were really high. Having been on the winning team for the two previous years I was feeling determined to make it a three-in-a-row. Foodie magazines became a daily purchase but it was in Delicious that I found my winning recipe. This was possibly the most amazing dessert I have ever made and most importantly it was easy peasy!

Raspberry ripple and pistachio parfait – a genuine crowdpleaser….

That concludes my July faves…what has been your favourites this past month? Comment down below.
