July Favourites

Sunday, 30 July 2017

This year seems to be passing at lightning speed, and as it's nearly August, I thought that it was certainly about time that I wrote up my July Favourites! 

I know my 'Favourites' posts can be a bit few and far between, but now that I have broken up from Sixth Form for the summer holidays, I just knew that I had to make some time to write such a post once again - especially when I have been loving so many things throughout the month of July...


Now we are in the midst of summer, it is sunflower season once again! As many of you may already know, I just love to have flowers in my room, but it must be said that my favourite of all the flowers are probably sunflowers, so it's really lovely to be able to get beautiful bunches of them and see them sat on my drawers in all their yellow loveliness.


A few months back, I started to collect some badges to wear on my beloved denim jacket, and in the month of July decided that it was certainly time to find some more. On Etsy, there seems to be absolute masses of badges for everyone - after searching about for some music-related ones, I stumbled upon a cute little store (which you can find HERE), and ended up getting three new badges.

It was rather hard to whittle down my options as there was so many cute badges available, but I eventually opted for the three you can see above including designs themed around the Stone Roses, David Bowie and The Smiths.


Okay, so July was the month where I really really got a bit obsessed with culottes! Having seen quite a lot of people wearing culottes in photos on Instagram, I realised that I would finally like to try a pair out for myself - New Look really seems like a great place to get culottes from at the minute, considering that they sell also sorts of different colours and patterns for very reasonable prices, hence why it was my first port of call when looking to buy myself a pair.

Since then, I have pretty much been living in culottes and now own three lovely pairs (including the stripy ones that you can see above) Being a bit fed up of wearing jeans all the time, culottes are a welcome change, as they are really flattering and super comfy - plus, they look really cute when just paired with a t-shirt and trainers....

This is pretty much a makeup product that I have rediscovered over the past month, as upon clearing out my makeup drawers a few weeks ago, I found this once much loved palette buried below the rest of my contour products...

In previous months, I just couldn't get enough of this product with it's lovely contour power, and it's even more beautiful highlight - therefore, it has really been great to find this contour kit out, and use it as part of my every day makeup looks once again!

Stone Roses Vinyl

I won't really ramble on about this one all that much, as I think I have talked about this album in a previous post... However, it must be said that this record has been getting a heck of a lot of play on my turntable lately, as not only is it one of my favourite albums anyway, but it really just gives off great summery vibes, and is one of go-to LP's to play on a sunny day.

So, that's all for my July Favourites!

I hope you all enjoyed this post, and I look forward to hopefully uploading lots more good content over the next few weeks considering that I am free of homework and revision for a while!
