July Favourites!!

Sorry this post is coming to you girls so late. I'm getting my room redecorated and everything had to be removed from my room which included my internet. Now I'm back and my room is nearly complete. I'm getting new custom built shelves for extra storage so hopefully that's going to be done soon. I'll keep you posted on what the finished room is like.I'm loving it so far.

So it's time for my July Favourites!! Wow this month went unbelievably fast. I can't believe it's the last month of Summer already. July was a quiet month, I was working lots and I had a few birthdays to go to. With that said, I still had a brill month! Hope you all are enjoying your summer.

Here are some of the products I've fallen in love with this month...

MAC + Marcel Wanders Lipgloss in Beatrix
 This is an old favourite of mine. My mom brought me back some goodies from her trip to New York last December and this was one of them. This collection wasn't available in Ireland so I was glad she picked it up. This lipgloss is a gorgeous golden nude colour. Sadly it's a Limited Edition so I won't be able to repurchase it. I'm trying to make this one last.

Benefit Funday Sunday Palette
 Wow I love this palette. I bought Sunday Funday at a Benefit Cosmetic event back in June. I've been using it so much as of late. I love the four eyeshadows that are included in the palette as they so wearable. This would also be perfect for travelling as it also contains a Benetint, Hoola Bronzer, eyeliner and a lipgloss. Sunday Funday palette is Limited Edition so get it while you can.

Korres Pomegranate Lip Butter
Being such a big fan of lip products there was going to be more than one in my favourites. I've been using this lip butter for a little over a month now and I love it. It not only moisturises but it also leaves me with lovely reddish lips. I'm definitely going to try out some more makeup product from Korres as I was so impressed with this product.

Kiehls Creme De Corps
Creme De Corps is my first purchase from Kiehls. I was really looking forward to trying this out. This is a lovely thick cream and is great for dry patches. After using this on my arm and legs I'm left with lovely soft skin. This product comes in 3 different sizes the one I own is the smallest. Creme De Corps Light is also available for people who find the original too heavy.

Liz Earle Eyebright Soothing Lotion
I am such a fan of Liz Earle. This is another product I love. I use Eyebright lotion every morning before I go to work. This product has a cooling effect on my eyes and they are left looking refreshed. It has become a big part of my everyday skincare routine. You can have a look at my full review here.

Vera Wang Lovestruck
My mom bought this a few weeks ago and gave it to me. It's my must have perfume. I love the classic floral scent and the gorgeous packaging. I doubt I will be chugging it around in my bag though as the bottle is just too pretty.

Yankee Vanilla Cupcake Candle
This candle smells amazing. It has a gorgeous sweet scent which I love. I got the medium size jar so it has lasted for ages.

What have been your July Favourites?? 



  1. OMG Laura, you got THE palette!! I agonised over it for 10 minutes and didn't buy it, a decision I've regretted since it's sold out & impossible to get!
