July Favourites 2015

Favourite posts are so repetitive but I always find myself writing one anyway. It gives me the chance to show you what I liked, and I know from reading other blogs, finding new products is always fun. Not that these goodies are anything new, quite the contrary. You may or may not have one or two  of them already but if not, you are seriously missing out. 

Essie Nail Lacquer 26 Status Symbol | £7.99
If you love a bit of colour, Essie polishes can do you no wrong. I say it over and over again, Essie is my favourite nail polish brand of all time, and this polish is an amazing summer shade that goes with everything. This creamy and feisty hot pink polish stands for everything you've always wanted in a mani and pedi. As always, application is smooth and this stuff lasts ages on my nails. A must in everyone’s collection!

Garnier Ultimate Blends Strength Restorer Serum | £3
My hair likes to play tricks on me. One day it looks amazing with no products in it. The next day however I am left with frizz all over, split ends even more noticeable, and that is when this little guy comes in action. Two generous pumps applied to my dry ends and the remaining on my palms all over is all it takes. The result is healthier and shinier looking hair, more manageable and not at all greasy. It really is a no-brainer this has great reviews online. Affordable and great! 

Bourjois 123 Perfect Colour Correcting Cream Ivory | £9.99
We quickly looked at this product on my recent haul (see that here), and at the time I had only used it twice so I couldn't really say if it was going to be a favourite of mine, but a few more uses followed and that was enough to decide how I felt about this face product. This covers my redness extremely well, and despite being lightweight, the coverage is amazing as is the staying power. Perfect for the summer and perfect for my holiday! 

Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara Medium Brown| £4.99 
Before this, I had been using the clear brow gel from Sleek which always flaked after a few hours. This, on the other hand, is my brow’s new BFF. It stays in place all day and doesn't streak, flake or clump. At first, the wand looks scary, but it gets the job done flawlessly and if you want picture-perfect looking brows, this is a must have.

Lollipops Lip Balm Délicieuse | £4.15
This godsend was wrapped beautifully inside my last Glossybox (see more on that here) and since then I have not been able to put it down. Used with Lush Lip scrub, this stuff yields lips that feel looked after and cared for. It also has no parabens, which is always a plus and it has been the one I've been reaching for ever since.

Favourite TV Series:
Jane the Virgin
“US comedy drama about a driven young woman with a slightly unrealistic view of romance who is saving herself for marriage but is artificially inseminated by mistake.”
My Latin roots are so well displayed in this show and I love how funny and witty it is. It reminds of Gilmore Girls, with a tad (read a lot) more drama. If you haven’t yet watched this, you will devour the first season in no time!

Melissa & Joey
“After a family scandal leaves Mel, a local politician, alone with her niece and nephew, she hires a man named Joe to become the family's male nanny.”
If you loved Mel in Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, you will love her in this. She is just as funny and I love her chemistry with Joe (who is a hottie!!). Sadly it has been cancelled after 4 great seasons, but if you love clean comedy with a hint of romance, you will enjoy watching this as much as I did.

Let me know what your favourites are below! Have a lovely week ahead beauties!

  18. I would like to try that brow wand. I need to find a way to make my brows looks neater.
    And I've briefly seen Melissa and Joey. From what I've seen it's hilarious. It's a shame it got cancelled.

  40. I tried the Bourjois CC cream, but it did nothing to my face. I was left feeling very disappointed. And OMG, Jane the Virgin seems like a must watch. Thanks for the recommend!!

  41. Love this Essie nail color, so pretty color, perfect for summer. This Bourjois cream sounds interesting. I need to give it a try. Have an amazing day, sweetie. xx


  42. Lovely pics! I love your blog:)

  43. I am loving how all of these products are so affordable! I've only been using BB Cream but I'm thinking of switching over to CCs just because they're much more lightweight and better for my sensitive skin; the Bourjois one you selected sounds so good! I can't believe the Garnier serum is only four pounds?! The serum I use is hella pricey and I don't see a massive improvement; looks like I know what to get next, haha.

    I LOVE Jane The Virgin; it's such a witty, intelligent and cleverly written show! I hope you have a wonderful August, Pam! <3

  54. I love the CC Cream from Bourjois, it feels very lightweight but still provides a good coverage. I hated the brow gel from Maybelline though, the wand was too big for my patchy eyebrows and the result was a mess.

  55. I am now going to watch Jane the virgin!


  56. I'm so glad I came across your blog. I've actually been so confused as to what brow gel to purchase. I initially was going to buy the Benefit Gimme Brow but now that I know that the Maybelline Browdrama works, I can purchase it since it is a cheaper option. Who doesn't love a good budget buy?
