Now hang on a minute but am I the only one who actually can’t believe how fast July has come and gone?? I feel like it was just last week I was sitting here writing about my June favourites and already it’s time to wave goodbye to July and to welcome August. I have to say, although I love summer and and I love the beach, August is not one of my favourite months in the year. Working in retail means August is the busiest time for us therefore, I can kiss goodbye to any sort of life for the next month.. urgh!!
Anyway this month has been a funny one for favourites, and I have definitely accumulated more lifestyle faves than beauty faves! Here’s what I’ve been loving throughout the month of June!
Kylie Cosmetics Maliboo Lipkit
I have quite a few Kylie Lipkits, and I know they’re controversial but I have to say, I do love them! Koko K is one of my favourites along with Exposed and Candy K but Maliboo has always been at the top for me and I have been wearing it non stop this month, it’s the perfect nude and would suit any skin tone!
I mentioned this product not too long ago in my ‘Recent Beauty Buys’ post, and also mentioned the skin fronts from Jeffree Star Cosmetics in my ‘June Favourites’. You guys, this one is everything to me! It’s not only my favourite highlighter of the month, but I’d say it’s my favourite highlighter EVER. I love the colour and how glowy it is.. definitely worth it.
Now I would be totally lying if I said I didn’t pick up this lipstick for it’s amazing rose gold packaging, but nevertheless it’s very quickly become a staple in my makeup collection, and I have been wearing it on a more day-to-day basis, whereas Maliboo by Kylie has been used on more of a fancier day out basis!! I bought the lipstick in the same shade in the matte version, but I do slightly prefer the creamier and shiner finish of this one.
This product was also mentioned in my ‘Recent Beauty Buys’ post, and I have been wearing it ever since pretty much everyday and it’s become a favourite of mine very quickly! It’s a very fresh scent, which is what I’m into, and I have had so many compliments from not just friends and family, but complete strangers when wearing it, which is nice because sometimes when I’m wearing a perfume, I can’t really smell it on me after so it’s slightly reassuring when someone else can haha!
July 23rd marked mine and my boyfriends 7 year anniversary, so I thought I had to mention him in here somewhere hehe! He’s obviously not just a monthly favourite, he’s literally and everyday of my life favourite but the day was lovely! We had some much needed ‘us’ time and just laughed and enjoyed each others company with some pizza and bubbly (he knows the way to my heart!!) I can’t quite believe it’s been 7 years since we met as 14 and 16 year old school students..what a journey we’ve been on!! A lot of people can’t believe we have been together that long, and always ask but I guess I just got really lucky. He’s my absolute best friend, and I really wouldn’t change it for the world.
We are heading off on holiday at the beginning of September, so therefore have on bit of a ‘beach body’ mission. We live in a really pretty area of Cornwall, and when the weather has been dry we have been trying our hardest to get out and about and enjoy the scenery. We have been walking and cycling a lot to help get us exercising and keeping healthy, and the pretty views definitely make it worth it!
Ohhhh McFly. My favourite band of all time since I was about 10 years old, I just forgot how much I loved them until recently! I have recently upgraded my spotify account, and came across all of the old McFly albums and I feel like I have fallen in love with those 4 boys all over again this month.. if I’m taking anything with me into the month of August, it’s my rediscovered love for McFly!!
See you next time,
