I still can’t get over the fact that we are heading into the start of August this week, has the summer weather been and gone already?! I swear we had a bit of sunshine at the start of the month, but now it just seems to be a constant grey sky with the odd down pour… Hopefully August will bring us a bit more sunshine. But before the new month begins I wanted to share a few bits and bobs that I have been loving over the past few weeks.


My first beauty favourite of the month has been the Mandelic Acid Cleaning Mousse by Shills. This is a lovely and gentle cleanser that I have been using first thing on a morning to really freshen up my skin and wake me up. It is suitable for all skin types, and the liquid cleanser is pumped out of an exfoliating pump that transforms the product into a soft foam and I have loved using it. 

I have also loved the new fake tan release from Sunkissed Bronze Professionals, Rapid Tan & Tone. This is a beautiful product that allows you to personalise your finished look as the tan develops further, the longer you leave it on your body before washing it off. You can read my full review here but it is a streak free, coconut smelling, and long wearing, perfect for summer. 

The last July beauty favourite of mine has been the Newtons Foot Therapy Anti-Bacterial Polishing Foot Scrub. This is a lovely summer companion as it gently exfoliates any hard or dry skin on the feet leaving them feeling amazingly soft and smooth, ideal for sandals and flip-flops.  


Moving onto my monthly lifestyle favourites, I have absolutely loved wearing these Primark heeled sliders. I bought these a few weeks ago for just £10 and they have become a real summer staple of mine. They have already featured in my Primark Haul YouTube video and The Perfect Summer Outfit on the blog. They just seem to go with everything and I find them so flattering and they give me the perfect amount of height. 

Although Marie Kondo’s The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying featured in my July Recent Reads post, this has been such a favourite of mine over the last few weeks. I have finally read it cover to cover and have begun to apply a lot of Kondo’s tips and tricks for tidying my home and keeping it tidy. I feel like it has changed my outlook on things and it has been a very inspirational read for me. 

My final July monthly favourite has been USA Travel Books. James and I are planning a road trip around the states early next year and I have been obsessed with finding out as much information as possible. I borrowed a bag full of books from the library trying to get some inspiration for our trip. We have planned and booked a few bits already and I am so excited to get more sorted over the next few weeks.
