Monthly favourites // July 2012

July has been fairly rubbish until my birthday, I was completely spoilt, so that cheered me up. I've loved way too many products, picking the ultimate favourites was hard! I haven't even included fashion items, but I'm sure I'll do more OOTD's if people enjoy them, does anyone actually like them? How has your July been? What have you been reaching for?

Makeup:
Revlon - Lip Butter - Strawberry Shortcake - I've been wearing this lip butter so much during July. It's a great every day lip and super moisturising. 
Lush - Liquid Lips - Passionate* - This was released last weekend worldwide, but I've been testing it for around a month. I love using it as a blush, though you only need a few dots. It's such a beautiful colour, I reviewed it here, see how amazing it is on my lips!
No7 - Summer of Dreams Bronzer - I adore this, the pretty shimmers have worn off due to use, which is a shame, but it still remains a brilliant bronzer, I reviewed it this week for more detail here.
Sally Hansen - Diamond Strength - Flawless - This is amazing and it was only a pound in poundland. If you missed my Ombre Nails here, I used this as my topcoat, I've had no chipping for the best part of two weeks. I highly recommend you give this a go.

Body Products:
Lush - Shower Smoothie - Turkish Delight - I picked this up the day after my birthday, I haven't been a fan of the smoothies in the past, but Lush have got this one to perfection. I also had a little demo in store so that sealed the deal. It's so soothing and moisturising.
Lush - Body Conditioner - Ro's Argan Body Conditioner - The second item the lovely Lush lady got me to buy after a demo. This is beyond amazing, the scent lasts all day and works great with Turkish Delight and Rose Jam, my favourite bubbleroon. 
Lush - Hand Cream - Helping Hands - My hands have been neglected due to still feeling not quite right. They've needed a lot of moisturising so I cracked out Helping Hands. It's a very rich hand cream that works wonders.
Natural Collection - Body Spray - Mango & Papaya - My favourite scent of July. This is summer in a bottle and it's £2. I read so many blogs raving about it, I had to pick one up for me and another for my Mum. She loves it too. 
Dead Sea - Spa Magik - Salt Brushing* - I've always had tiny little bumps and slight redness on my arms, if you're like me, don't wait till I review this, buy it. I still have no redness and little bumps. Best scrub of my life, cheaper than a spa, leaves me feeling like I've just stepped out of one. 
Dead Sea - Spa Magik - Hair Magic Serum* - This is their conditioner, I used the whole sachet in one go. Incredible, so many compliments and my hair feels amazing. Better than any salon treatments. I'm really loving this brand, I want to buy it all.
Dead Sea - Spa Magik - Mineral Shampoo* - I wanted a pick me up and ended up using the whole sachet, though you get two uses, but keeping an open sachet is messy. Again, this is just brilliant. I'll be repurchasing and reviewing it all.

Hair Styles:
I've been using less heat on my hair this month, messy buns and loose curls/waves have been my go to hair styles. Messy buns are perfect for this heatwave and my loose waves required me putting my hair up in a turban towel for an hour, then taking out, work OSiS+ Body Me through and leaving to dry into loose curls/waves.

Music: 
Gavin Degraw's album - Sweeter, I used to listen to him so much & then there's Landon Austin, the youtube sensation.

Food & Drink:
I'm deprived of bread etc; but I'm feeling a lot better without it, suggestions of replacements would be great. However two items that are the new ways to my heart, Little Miracles, Organic Energy - Black Tea, Ginseng, Peach, Acai & Haagen-Dazs, Secret Sensations - Créme Brulée...plus unlimited supplies of Dominos Chicken Kickers.

  2. Was it this polish? This is just the clear and not a top coat :) I find clears better than actual labelled top coats! X
