I feel like July was a reallllllllly long month but I don’t feel like I have many favourites at all! But the few things I was loving this month, very super amazing!
NYX / Contour and Highlight Palette
I’d had my eye on this contour kit for so long and when I was in Milan, I bit the bullet and treated myself. I wasn’t sure how effective it would be on my skin as it’s a powder kit but I was so pleasantly surprised. There are different contour shades, some lighter and some darker which is great for different skin tones. I personally use the lighter tones as I’m quite pale. The highlights are just amazing! Again, there are four shades, and my favourite is the first shimmery one. When I wear it I feel like my face has been carved by angels. I love this product so much and what is great is that it is refillable and completely affordable at only £18.
NYX / Butter Lipstick / Mary Janes
I absolutely adore NYX lip products. And when I seen this absolutely gorgeous red shade, I had to have it. I’ve been obsessing over red lips recently, even though I can’t pull it off like Cheryl Blossom in Riverdale. Honestly, make up goals. I love this shade by NYX and it applies so smoothly. It can get a bit messy if you’re drinking coffee etc but it does last pretty long.
Bellapierre / Cosmetic Banana Setting Powder
This product honestly sets my make up so well. I tip some onto my skin and leave it for a bit then brush the product over my face. I don’t use powders on my face anymore as it feels too heavy and it feels like it’s clogging my skin but honestly, this powder is so lightweight so I have been using it every day to set my makeup!
I’ve been a Love Island loyal since season 1 and rooted so much for Hannah and Jon and in season 2, Kara and Nathan. Now season 3 has come to an end, I am lost. I haven’t really backed a couple from the beginning this season but I absolutely love love love both Camilla and Jamie. I was so chuffed for Amber and Kem winning cos they proved so many people wrong. Now I have Love Island blues.
Wilde Like Me / Louise Pentland

Behind the mask she carefully applies every day, things just feel … grey. And lonely. She struggles to fit in with the school mum crew.

After 4 years (2 months, and 15 days!) of single-mum-dom, it’s time for Robin Wilde to Change. Her. Life. Exciting new opportunities are about to come Robin’s way … Perhaps a man, perhaps the chance of a lifetime …What will Robin do with the possibilities she creates for herself? And what potential will she unlock if she takes the leap?
Ahh, I had pre-ordered this and was so so excited when it arrived! I absolutely love Louise and just knew it would be a great read. It was so so funny at parts and I laughed out loud quite a few times!
And I think that’s it for this month! What have you been loving?
