BEAUTY || Monthly Favourites; July 

Hello my lovelies, 

Y'know what the end of the month means, oh yes monthly favourites!? I can't believe we're over half way through 2015, woah! July past in the blink of an eye, if I've not been working lately I've been sleeping, so it's been a crazy month. SO I'm just going to get straight into it! 

black xs- The first product of the month is almost a forgotten favourite. My parents brought me this for christmas after I'd been contemplating getting it myself for months. The scents from Paco Robanne are just 'wow'. This perfume has some undertones of the male Black XS and as I'm obsessed with that scent well this has just been perfect for me. It has such a scent which gives it that feminine touch and lasting wear of the scent is pretty impressive. (It's very early and I can't think of much vocab to describe this pretty little bottle)
witch blemish stick - This little beauty has been in my stash for some time & recently I've been having a few more breakouts than I'd like, so having this little stick to help control and get rid of those spots is pretty perfect!
vo5 heat protector - My hair is possibly the least looked after part of any routine I have. I some how forget the importance of looking after my hair. Thankfully the other week Superdrug had an offer on some vo5 products and I got my hands on this heat protector, dry shampoo and some strong hair spray and I've got to say I'll be using vo5 alot more as these products are awesome!!
b.defined eyebrow kit - I will forever be thankful to Eff for this little beauty. It took me so long before I started doing anything with my brows and I do just like to fill them in for more definition. I only use the shade I need and the gels and highlight in the set do see little use, but the shade I need for my brows is perfect, I've almost hit pan and I'll be terribly upset when I can't use it anymore!
pro fix makeup setting spray - I picked up this little gem a few weeks ago now, I'd be craving to text out some setting spray, wondering whether it REALLY did work. I can't say much for this keeping my base makeup in place, however I feel as those my eye makeup stays perfect, especially through an eight hour shift. Which is perfect for anyone working I think!!

tv shows, films, books & music. 
This little section this month is lacking in TV shows, netflix has taken a back seat this month. Mainly as I haven't had a spare minute to sit and watch anything. I'm currently trying to get my computer fixed so I can start watching ONE TREE HILL, which I desperately need that fix. That being said to fill the void until I get my computers disc drive working, I've had Spotify on repeat and listening to all the One tree hill playlists, finding my favourite songs from the series and some forgotten and hidden gems. I haven't had much spare time for the cinema either sadly, however I watched MAGIC MIKE and ANT MAN recently and loveddddd them both so much!! Now fingers crossed I get to watch Inside Out & Southpaw during August. ONE LINE A DAY is a book I got for Christmas (from tom, I think?) and it's crazy to believe I've been filling it in for half a year now. This little book excites me so much and I can't wait to complete this book and in 5 years time see the development of myself and my life simply through little stories in a book! 

everything else. 
I'm not lying when I say nothing really happened this month. My favourites are almost non-exsistent. I moved my bedroom around this month and re-created my little living space and I couldn't be happier. I like to make my room something I like to spend my time in, as I don't just sleep in this room it's my little place to escape and oh it just makes me so happy! 

what I got up to. 
I'm not lying when I say I can't remember what I've done this month. I recently upped my hours at work, practically going from part to full time hours. Thankfully it hasn't destroyed me and I feel I've proved so many people wrong by managing these hours. But it also means I have very little social time. However in those days between; I've played bowling THREE times. Toms family decided that a family trip out would be fun, frankie and bennys and a game of bowling and an hour in the arcades...this happened twice in one month. While the third time happened with some friends from work just a few days ago, I've adored those memories. I also spent an evening drinking with some friends from college, catching up on each others lives now and reminiscing on how things were back in college. I also spent a few days with a friend from work, lots of lunch dates and trying bubble tea for the first time. My parents also celebrated their 26th wedding anniversary, and they choose to spend their evening with me and Tom which was lovely. We drank and eat some yummy things.
