I have no idea where this last month has gone with two weeks of brain numbing exams & then two weeks of holidays, it seems that June has run away from me and now were all half way through July!
I’ve been putting off this post for a while from both lack of inspiration & sleep deprivation.
Now that school is back into full swing I have noticed a few products lurking on my makeup shelf & on my desk just waiting to be featured.
Strawberry Shower Wash The Body Shop – This heavenly smelling liquid have been around for years. I remember my mother taking me to The Body Shop when I was little and buying the very similar smelling strawberry lip balm (Which I bought a new one of the other day…). Made from strawberry seed oil & possibly unicorn extract, it is my second favorite body wash under Original Sources Mint & Green Tea Wash.
Daily Oil Control Proactiv - This stuff should be renamed liquid gold! I have very oily skin (
Aqua Splash Tangle Teezer - My hair has naturally big long curls so it's very easy to get my hair matted & looking like a birds nest. I find that if I brush my hair when it's dry it just goes frizzy & horrible, being able to use the new Tangle Teezer in my shower when running conditioner through my ends is possibly a life saver! The bristle are long and short removing little knots normal brushing can sometimes miss. I picked mine up from my hair dresses Bianca's Hair & Beauty Salon.
Batiste Dry Shampoo in Mamba NEW - I do have to admit my favourite scent is Cherry but Mamba is a close second. Batiste Dry Shampoo is always perfect between washes, it leaves my roots fresh & less oily. It also gives added body making my already voluminous curls even more bouncy!
Daughter Of Smoke And Bone By Lani Taylor - I've read this book several times & it still remains one of my many favourites. You can read a good summary HERE. I like that it's a new concept not a reality/fantasy fiction thats be done before.
Washed out Denim Jacket from Dotti - Although this purchase was on the pricy end I was glad I picked it up. I see this piece as a staple almost everyone needs in there wardrobe. I was tired of constantly pulling out my cardigans when it go cold and looking like an eighty year old grandma. I can wear this over dresses or... heck anything really! Next time I feature some clothing I'll try it on so you can see how it fits - but currently i'm sitting in my pi's, under a cozy blanket, watching Master Chef. UPDATE - You can see it in a post HERE.
It seems to be mostly beauty favourites this month but I'm sure next time there will be more of a variety because I'm going shopping with my Aunt on the weekend - vintage shopping I think. If you enjoyed this post be sure to leave a comment on what you enjoyed & how I could improve!
