My July Favourites

Hello beautiess,
It's nearing the end of the month again! July has been a pretty good month for me I started a new job at the Body Shop which I have been loving, and I'm about to go on holiday to Malia in Crete with my girlfriends. The weather here in England has been hideous this month, cold and windy and rainy and so unseasonal. It definitely has affected the make-up and the hair that I've been wearing, so if anyone is interested in seeing how I've been wearing make-up in the rain I'm thinking of doing a FOTD? Anyway, onto the favourites!

  • Something I've been really loving this month has been a staple in my make-up bag for a while now, but I recently rediscovered it when Essiebutton did a blogpost on it. And it's the Soap and Glory eyeshadow quad called 'Lid Stuff' it's got such brilliant neutral eye colours in it, perfect for every day wear. Since I'm embracing my natural brown hair now, I've been loving using the dark matte brown colour mixed with a bit of 'Wedge' by MAC for my brow colour.

  • Still on the same theme of make-up I also loved this month is my new foundation routine, I featured both of these things in my recent haul and I am LOVING it, it's the L'Oreal Lumi Magique Pure Light Primer teamed with Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation, I love to mix these together on the back of my hand, it gives such a lovely dewy, glowy lovely finish to the skin. Nothing too heavy but it still covers nicely, it's just looovely. I've also actually just recently finished Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum, and I've read some fantastic reviews on Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation, any other recommendations?

  • Now, onto hair care. I have dry, damaged, horrible, frizzy hair. I'm just going to come out and say it. There. It's out in the open now. Do we all feel better? I do. But no, I once had lovely soft ringlet curly brown hair, but of course I wanted to put every dye known to man on it and straighten it and curl it to submission and I regret it so much. So since I've dyed my hair back to brown I've been trying to leave it as much as I can not using heat and using deep conditioners twice a week, and all the hair oils I can get my hands on. (By the way, if any of you have any miracle treatments or products you think I should try out please comment) But I picked up a new leave in conditioner recently that I've really been liking and been using religiously all month it's Inecto's pure coconut leave in conditioner . I've tried a fair few leave in conditioners and I love the way this one is incredibly affordable (£1.99 from Savers!) and genuinely makes a difference on my hair without weighing it down or making it feel full of product. Word of warning though: if you don't like coconuty smells, AVOID because you will not like this!
  • My random favourite of July has to be Desperate Housewives, I have been working my way through watching all the seasons, i'm at the very start of season 8 atm. But no spoilers, PLEASE!  

I've been stuck in a little bit of a blogging rut recently, and I'm determined to get out of it. Any suggestions of future blog posts would be very welcome! 

Speak to you all soon, Love Daisy xxx
