July favourites 2015

Beauty and lifestyle products I have been loving in July

So it has come to the end of July which means it is time to write a post on newly discovered products which I have been loving this month-enjoy!

-Hollister low rise denim shorts- I was in desperate need for a pair of shorts this summer and I was fortunate enough that when I went into Hollister their shorts were in the sale. I loved the ripped effect of these shorts so I snatched them up at a bargain price of £20.

-Urban outfitters top- I thought this top would be a perfect match for my new shorts and it was also in the sale section, from £26 to £12. It is very light and would be great in the hot weather, the white colour also means it would match most of my clothes.

-Maybelline eraser eye concealer-I purchased this product under the wise words of Gabriella (VelvetGh0st) as I felt like my No7 concealer kept on creasing underneath my eyes. When I went to boots they only had the nude shade so I took the plunge and I purchased it. The concealer was a good recommendation as it blends easily with my makeup and did not crease, it was a bit dark and I would have preferred the 'light' shade but for summer 'nude' is good as I would be wearing a more bronzed face.

-Garnier summer body lotion- This has probably been my favourite product of the month, I really wanted to get a tanned look without spending the time of sunbathing and I was too scared to use a fake tan. This product is a 2 in 1 as it adds a buildable natural looking tan and also moisturises skin so I don't have to have two separate products.

-Virgin Mojito shower gel-Virgin mojito is body shop's new fragrance, it is a mixture between mint and lime and is a perfect summer scent, the aroma reminds me of lime starburst! However this is a limited addition fragrance so I will have to stock up on the shower gel before they are discontinued.

-Crescent bay Hollister spray- This spray has currently been my summer fragrance and is a floral scent.

-Citrus Verbena Haircare duo- L'occtaine en provenance relased their new fragrance which is the citrus verbena, as in the name it is a citrusy scent and is perfect for the summer months. The bright yellow colour represents the bright, zingy flavour and I decided to purchase the fragrance in form of hair care products.,83,1,39615,753349.htm?newversion=true&=#s=29793

-Special K cereal bar milk chocolate- I decided to add a food favourite into this post as these bars have proved a nice healthy snack. I often have them in the evening as a healthy replacement to a chocolate bar.

-Real techniques brushes- So there has been much hype over the real techniques and  my only product was the powder brush so I decided to purchase the eye brushes to help me with detail on my eye make up. I have not really used them so far as I am so scared to get them dirty but I think they will be my new staple eye brushes.

W.I.P nails!

Review of urban outfitters northern lights, secret garden and bonjouri nail polish from their W.I.P range which was on sale.
Left to right polish names: Northern lights, Secret garden and Bonjouri
Whenever I am in urban outfitters I am constantly admiring the W.I.P nail polish range but at the price of £6 each I have always restricted myself from purchasing them. However, during my last visit the store had a summer sale on (which firstly really scares me seeing as I have only just started my summer holiday) in which the nail polishes were included in. Instead of their usual price of £6 I purchased the polishes secret garden and bonjouri at £3 and northern lights at £1 (even the cashier said she would have to go and later purchase northern lights during her lunch break due to the amazing bargain!)
Here is what I would match each of these nail polishes with:
Northern lights- This is a matte colour which is a royal purple with gold glitter immersed throughout it. This purple has a majestic feel and I would especially paint my nails this colour when attending formal events. I would incorporate other purples, gold's and dark colours in my outfit to highlight the gold glitter.
Bonjouri- This consists of white, blue and pink pigments and is such a fun nail polish. For me, this is more of a casual polish and I think denim jeans or shorts and white tees would really projects this fun print.
Secret Garden- This is a clear polish immersed with blue sequins. This polish is quite a challenge to apply however looks a masterpiece when finished. This is a real summer colour for me and I am planning to paint my nails this colour when I go on holiday as I think it is the perfect match for laying by the pool and relaxing by the sea. I think this colour would compliment other blues and denims as well as white and silver.
