July 30th • Posted in Favourites
This month we’ve started experiencing Summer the real way, which made me in the mood for a holiday and nothing more really, but between planning out our well-deserved few days away in August and working non-stop to avoid the whole overwhelming pack of work stuff to get through when we’ll be back, here are a few things I’ve loved in July…
L’Oreal Color Riche Nail Polish in You’Re Worth It
Yes, I’m back on the nail polishes train! Although I still need to find the perfect sandals for the season, there’s nothing I love more in summertime than nail polish on my toes. I love myself a good coral and that’s usually my first choice (remember?), but for some reasons I’ve been obsessed with grey-ish, lilac-y blues recently and this L’Oreal gem is just the most perfect nail polish ever!
Not only the shade is pretty much everything I was looking for in a nail polish recently (it’s blue, but sometimes looks grey and surely has some lilac in the mixture), but also the formula is spot-on. This L’Oreal Color Riche line has always left me impressed about its lasting power and it’s not letting me down even this time!
Ambre Solaire Bronzer Self-Tanning Lotion – Garnier
I’ve talked about this recently, but I couldn’t really do this favourites post without mentioning my fave Garnier Self Tanner. This one is a gradual tanner, so great to build up a nice natural colour even if you’re starting from the palest of skins (something like my skin). It never fails to leave me looking glowy and naturally tanned without being super intense or orange-y. Although it’s meant to smell a bit better than your average self tanner, I still think the biscuit-y scent is very strong for my liking, but I like the results that much that I can tolerate it!
Pretty Frill Beach Shorts – ASOS
The best thing about having a holiday is the whole swimwear shopping spree that usually comes right after the booking stage. This year I may or may not have already added a couple more bikinis to my collection, but the piece I’ve fallen in love with already are surely these ASOS Frill Beach Shorts! I’ll be honest, I was stalking these for weeks even before knowing we were going to be on a beach anytime soon! They are very sheer, so probably only appropriate on a bikini or swimsuit, but they’re so flattering and well made in the softest fabric ever – I believe I’ve just discover a Summer holiday gems for years to come!
I’m usually not one who is anywhere close to be curious about supplements, I don’t want anything artificial in my body at all and prefer to source nutrients into my food instead, but I had already worked with VITL a couple of times on some recipes and have been following them ever since, so when I was introduced to their VITL Greens*, although I was a bit restrained at first, after reading about their “Vegan, Non-GMO, Gluten-Free” ethics, I thought I’d give them a go. Each sachet contains 19 all-natural superfoods that are extremely good for nail and hair health, but also energies and immune health. I’m going to talk about them more in details soon, but I’ve been having one sachet per day since a week and I’m already obsessed with them!
Lastly this month, I’ve been quite enjoying this yoga routine from Madeleine Shaw on Youtube: I love myself a quick yoga practice a few times per week, something that leave my muscles feeling like they’ve worked nicely, and leaves me feeling energized and ready to move on with the rest of the day, and this sequence is what I’m finding myself to go back to quite often lately!
And that’s it! In a nutshell, my July favourites!
Would love to know what you’ve been loving lately, I’m especially after some books recommendations! x
