July was a very good month - if you want to know the ins and outs of why, you can see here on my LIFE AS OF LATE post from a couple of weeks ago. Between busy days at work, a birthday and even a blogiversary though, I've managed to note down the things I've loved most this whole month, ranging from things shiny and new to reaffirmed old flames...

1/STYLE
monica vinader / riva ring
a white tee
denim

2/ BEAUTY
jo malone / wood sage and sea salt
braids
pro:voke / touch of silver brightening shampoo
m.a.c / yash
body shop / virgin mojito shower gel

3/ LIFE
rumour mill / rudimental
bagels

As you can see, I've enjoyed a casual approach to fashion, something that seems to happen every summer as I skip the faff in favour of flip flops, jeans and a tee. And - no surprise - my MONICA VINADER ring comes up trumps as it has not once left my side, y'know literally.

In the beauty books, I'm sad to say my favourite ever perfume is down to its last droplets :'(. WOOD SAGE AND SEA SALT by Jo Malone is both masculine and fresh, making it my ultimate day scent all year round, but especially in spring/summer. Between that, my lovely MOJITO shower gel, and blonder hair thanks to my PURPLE SHAMPOO - it's fair to say I've fully embraced the sunny weather in my beauty routine. Braids and a NUDE LIP have also been firm favourites, sure to last the whole year long.

Lastly, bagels with anything and everything on have been my first choice for breakfast/lunch, preferably whilst listening to RUMOUR MILL on repeat, my favourite song by far all month long.




Happy hump day folks
