My July Favourites

Hey! It’s the 31st of July and this means that it’s the perfect time to show you my July Favourites! Now most of the things are random but I’ll start with my three beauty (ish) favourites! 🙂

1. Garnier Softening Cleansing Lotion

I have been loving this cleansing lotion because it takes my makeup off perfectly and it doesn’t affect my sensitive skin. It has lasted me the whole of July and for £3.29 it’s very good value.

2. Zoella Sweet Inspirations Body Mist

I received Zoe’s new Body Mist for my birthday and the new ‘Sweet Inspirations’ range smells incredible! I love having a little spritz of this during the day to freshen up. I have used this every day since my birthday!


3. Cloud Washi Tape

I purchased this cloud and heart washi tape from Paperchase and its so beautiful. I have loved using it in my journal throughout July.

4. Primark Rose Gold Vanilla Candle

I know its summer and a lot of people only light candles in Autumn/Winter but this Primark candle had been sitting on my chest of drawers for ages and I decided to light it. It smells so strong and has melted evenly. I also just love the rose gold colour!


5. Beautiful Broken Things – By Sara Barnard

This book is AMAZING! It is in Zoella’s book club and it has such a heart-warming, honest and emotional plot and it really explains the importance of true friendship! I couldn’t put it down and I strongly recommend it! An absolute MUST-READ.

6. Finding Dory

I watched Finding Dory in the cinema yesterday with my best friend and we enjoyed it so much! It was so cute, funny and a great sequel to Finding Nemo. I loved it, please go and see it at your local cinema!

That’s all my July Favourites!!!

A Family Party

Hey! Last weekend I went to my Great Auntie’s 80th Birthday Party. It was set in her son’s beautiful house and garden and there were around 60 people there. It was so lovely to see her because I hadn’t seen her for a few years and to have a lot of the family there together was really nice 🙂

They had a small marquee tent that had lots of cakes, sandwiches and drinks in. There were these delicious scones and I couldn’t help but take a photo of them!


I loved spending the time with my younger cousins. We kicked a football around, chased each other and stupidly danced along to the live Jazz band! Then we went to the field where their Alpacas are! They are so cute and my cousins and I fed them 🙂


After, my Great Auntie did a speech and a toast! Then the cake was cut and we sat on the grass eating it and talking.


It was such a lovely afternoon and I enjoyed spending time with the people I love. I’m so grateful for all of them ❤

Thank you so much for reading! ❤

Mini Stationery Haul

Hey! Recently I have been loving all things stationery. I have started journaling and I wanted some new notebooks and washi tapes to decorate the pages 🙂

I went into my local village and to my surprise there was a new stationery shop and from there I picked up a few things. I got the Leuchtturm 1917 Purple A5 squared notebook, the Page Mates sticky notes and two washi tapes.


Then I went into Sainsbury’s and found that they have a new floral range out. It is absolutely stunning! So I couldn’t help myself and I picked up the pack of three washi tapes and the ‘Dream Big’ notebook. Then I found the gold notebook in the sale for just £1.50!


I am in love with my new washi tapes! 🙂

That’s everything that I bought!

Why Haven’t I Posted?

Hey my lovely followers ❤ Now I kind of have some explaining to do. I haven’t been blogging since the 4th of May and I need to let you know why…

Firstly, towards the end of May I had to finish my health and social care coursework so I powered through so much work to get it all done early. I also felt so anxious and down, and  I had no inspiration to blog around this time, let alone the time to write a post!

I mentioned this before in another post but, my friend is currently in hospital suffering from anorexia and I have spent time writing her letters, visiting her, making sure she’s okay and trying to be the bested friend I can be. I hate watching her go through this and it affects me in ways that neither her or anyone else will ever understand. No matter how long it takes, I know she’ll get there in the end! ❤

Also, I’ve not been in the right headspace to post as my blog is a place that is positive and I didn’t want to post anything when I wasn’t feeling positive.

I currently have tonsillitis as well so I’m on antibiotics for that! BUT… I’m back and I have been planning lots of posts and I’m ready to start up my blog again!

Thank you for sticking around for me and as always thank you so much for reading ❤
