July Favourites 2015


Hey Guys

Today I'm going to be showing you the things I have been loving throughout the month of July.
Starting with..


Fashion 


Layered Necklaces

I never really wore a lot of jewellery before but I was sorting through my jewellery collection & decided I should probably start. I also really liked the festival trend of layering necklaces on top of each other. Here are some of my favourites
L-R Primark, Boohoo x3, Newbridge Silverware.

Primark Flats

I have been looking at the Pebble Snake Slip-ons by Vans. But I have been unsure if they suited me or if I would get any wear out of them. So when I spotted these almost replicas in Penney's/Primark I was very excited to try them. I have worn these a lot so far & love how they look. They are so comfy & go with everything. For less then a tenner shur where would ya be going?

Beauty


Zovirax

Unfortunately this month my face has decided to attack me with cold sores. So I have been using Zovirax. It is one of the few things I find that actually helps.It has defiantly been a holy grail for me this month. If you suffer from coldsores then I defiantly recommend this, It helps to prevents them if you apply it straight away & it really helps with the healing process.

Real Techniques Contour brush

I have been loving this since before July actually. This brush is from the Real Techniques core collection. I really like the shape as well as the size. I find its perfect for contouring & applying blush. I sometimes use it for applying powder to my under eyes as well. It could also be very good for applying highlighter but I haven't tried if for that yet.

Smashbox Full Exposure eyeshadow brush

Another brush I have been loving is the double ended eyeshadow brush from my Smashbox Full Exposure palette. One side is a fluffy blending brush and they other is a flat shader brush. Basically a MAC 239 & a 217. Which is very handy when my mac eyeshadow brushes are dirty. But I have been loving this brush for concealer. I use the blending brush to blend my concealer on any blemishes & under my eyes. I really like how it looks because I find when I apply concealer with my finger it looks patchy & doesn't stay in place.

 MAC Russian Red


I got this lipstick as a Christmas present & have been wearing it a lot the past month. Its a lovely blue-toned matte red shade, However I do not recommend applying it on a bus or train like I did. It goes on really well & doesn't dry out my lips. This is now my new go-to red lip.


Lifestyle


Bagels

This month I eat far too many bagels especially the cinnamon & raisin ones. I've defiantly ate at least two packs of the New York Bakery bagels. It seems that every time I eat out this months I ordered a bagel. From just butter to hummus and avocado. But my personal favourite combination has to be cream cheese &  raw smoked salmon.

Big Brother

In July I fell down a Big Brother hole. I watched it religiously every evening with my mother & became totally obsessed. Its all I wanted to talk about to my friends and family & by the end of the series my sister & best friend knew all about the show from barely even watching it.

For the month of August I will be doing B(A)EDA - Blog (almost) every day August where I will be trying to get a blog post up every week day this month.
If you want to read yesterdays its all about positivity I'll link it here
That's all my favourites for this month..

 Leave me comment if you have been loving any of these things too.

Happy 2nd day of BEDA!

Love always,
Nixie
