So, during the last two weeks I have been away in Cornwall for my holidays. My two older sisters who don't live with me also came down with my niece and brother-in-law. I had a great time; going to the beach, eating lots of ice cream and of course a sneaky bit of shopping! However, where I was staying the WiFi wasn't great so I wasn't able to write and upload a blog post. I apologies for this lack of posts but business will resume as normal as of this week and I leave you this a few photos from my holiday.

July Favourites

I still can't believe that another month is over! July has been very relaxed after all the hard work of the last couple of months. Lots of sun bathing and preparations for my up coming holiday taking place. Lots of products used and loved and some not so much. So here it is, my July favourites. 

My first favourite from July is the Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream. I don't like to wear heavy make up during the summer, but my skin is not great at the moment and this BB Cream is great. It gives great coverage whilst still feeling light. It's very easily build-able for those days you feel like your skin is not at it's best and to top it off it has SPF 20 to protect your skin when out in the sun.

The next product is the Piz Buin In Sun ultra light sun spray. Now I'm quiet picky with sun cream as I hate feeling sticky for ages after applying it but with this I don't. It absorbs in to your skin almost instantly. It has SPF 50, UVA and UVB protection. I can normally get away with an SPF 20 or 30 but with the recent heatwave I didn't want to take my chances and then get burnt. 

The next item is the Avon glimmerstick eye liner in brown. It's extremely rare that a go out without eye liner on because I feel eyes look a bit lost on my face without it. Crazy I know! I normally wear black eye liner as it's such a classic but I felt I needed a softer colour for summer, so I went for brown to go with my hair for a natural look whilst still framing my eyes. 

Another of my favourite products of July are the Bourjois Color Boost Glossy Finish Lipsticks. I'd been looking for these for a while now but my local Boots never had them in stock when I went in. So when I went to a large store I had to pick up 2! I got the very popular Peach on the Beach and Orange Punch. I've heard lots of amazing things about these, but wow! The pigmentation is fantastic, they're great for every day and can built up for a more intense, pop of colour for the evenings. It's the feeling of a lip balm but the colour intensity of a lipstick. It's a win, win situation. 

As I mentioned in my last blog post, I've been buying a lot of nail polish this last month, some would say too much, but I don't think you can ever have too much of a good thing! In particular I've been buying the new Barry M Gelly nail paints. I currently have 8, which I didn't realize until I went to pick my top 2, which I'm telling you was a very difficult decision. The two I ended on picking we're passion fruit and papaya which I think might be my holiday colours. They're thicker than a normal nail polish and don't chip as easily, which has been great at work recently. 

Another month. Another lot of products I've been loving. Hope you enjoyed.
