Monthly Favourites | July
I cannot believe it's already August, which means there is only 21 more Friday's until Christmas day!! I hope you've all had a wonderful summer so far, even though the weather has been so terrible here in the UK; rain, dull, cloudy weather is no good for summer really.
This past week has been awesome, if you don't know already (don't know how unless you've been living under a rock as I've gone on about it so much now) it was my birthday on July 31st so I've had a really great weekend celebrating that, so obviously that is my first big monthly favourite but here's the rest of what I've been loving this month..
Birthday Presents and Celebrations
Thank you so much to everyone who made my birthday celebrations so special and amazing. A massive thank you to everyone who send me birthday wishes, and to all the people who gave me cards, presents and money, and a massive huge mega big thank you to my husband for making me day so special, and for everything.
Brie Mode Dress
Phil gave me this awesome Brie Mode dress as an early birthday present a couple of days before my birthday and I am so happy with it. Something I don't really talk about much on my blog is that I am actually a fan of WWE and I love Brie Bella. I also love, Paige, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose.
Jurassic World Movie & Game
I love the Jurassic movies and now that the new one has came out I couldn't wait to see it. We downloaded it and I also bought the new Jurassic World Lego Game for the xbox. I loved the movie but I knew I would, and the game is just as good. The only thing is that because I am a fan the makers have tried to put all the movies into one game and sometimes it all doesn't sinc up. I would suggest getting the game if you are a Lego or Jurassic fan.
Vintage Tea Cups
I bought these in Home Bargains for only 49p each - bargain! I only bought two and I regret that so much, I want to go back and see if I can buy two more as they are so cute and I love them so much. I can't find them online but I did find ones from Havens that are so similar but are way too pricey so I would suggest going to your local Home Bargains and searching for them yourself.
Heart Shaped Makeup Brush
I admit, I seen this online and only bought it because it was cheap and looked really cute. They arrived really quickly too which was great and although the packing wasn't really wonderful as they were just in a plastic bag with no bubble wrap, but I started using it right away and I have to say it is awesome. I have been using it as a blush and highlighting brush and it works just great. Plus it's pink and super soft too.
July Glossy Box
July Glossy Box was Paris themed and if you have been following me and reading my blogs for a long time you will know I love Paris. Its been my favourite box so far and the stuff I got in it was just wonderful. I have a blog post already about this so click here to read it.
I really needed a new shelf in my make up room as so many things were piling up so I bought this from Argos and it works so well, I love it. It makes the room look so much more tidy and the shelving is beautiful even though its was cheap for only £14.99.
Nail Polish Remover Pots
I have been after one of these for ages and just haven't got around to buying one so I seen them on Amazon and thought I would buy one (since then I have bought another spare one, one for my nan, one for my mum and one for a friend), they are so great! I really would recommend getting yourself one of these.
Calendar Memo Board
I would recommend this to everyone, even if you're not a blogger. They are great for keeping a schedule on everything, I personally write that blog and such are going up on what day and then write them and schedule them for that day, such a bargain at £2 as well.
If you are a blogger and have done a monthly favourites post send me the link? I love reading them and seeing what everyone is loving each month. I hope you have all enjoyed July, and I hope you all have a wonderful August.
