This is my favourite outfit this month. It is so easy especially through this heatwave. When I was in London getting on the tube to work was an absolute nightmare, but when I started to wear my TopShop dresses like this one I felt so much better. The material is very light which makes me want to wear it every day. I never thought orange would be my colour because I have very blonde hair, but after I wore it for the first time I literally fell in love.
Summer dresses have been my thing this year, I love pretty things. Boho, girly but I also love the retro, festival style. I can’t wait to share with you all my Boomtown outfits.
This month I have been reading SweetBitter which is a novel by Stephanie Danler. I am not that far into it yet but it is a book that I have seen advertised everywhere, especially in America. It is about a young girl who moves to New York to start her new career but goes down the wrong path by hanging out with the crowd and getting involved with the wrong things. So far I am loving but I do find it hard to find time to read books. Since being in London it has been something that I definitely want to get into as it does increase your worldly knowledge and your ability to read and write. Especially as I am doing a course based slightly on English Literature.
I bought this book from Amazon and I do recommend it as the perfect Summer time read. It is very different to anything I have read before. It has now become a major television show in America which I will start watching once I have finished the book.
This has been my favourite beauty product for a while. As you can probably tell from my blog I am not massively into make up. I don’t buy expensive make up, I don’t wear lots of make up, I am just not passionate about it. Don’t get me wrong, before I am going on a night out I like to use my Morphe or Naked eye shadow pallets but on a day to day business it just is not my thing. I am way more into skincare and making my skin glow, as you can probably see.
But saying that, I have recently been LOVING this M.A.C highlighter. If there is any make up I wear it is BB cream, mascara and highlighter. This product just makes your skin glow incredibly, without giving it an obvious line across your face. It is very suttle and very thin, making it pretty easy to use and you don’t need much of it. It is the perfect Summer make up product.
This one is called Soft and Gentle – you can check it out through this link!
As you all know I have been in London the past 3 weeks so it is very hard for me to pick a favourite place as London as a whole is amazing. But if I had to pick one place it would probably be Covent Garden (or Hyde Park in the Summer)! Covent Garden is the perfect place to go and hang out after work, there is music playing, lots of fancy shops and just a good atmosphere. I was lucky enough to be working just a 20 minute walk from Oxford Street and Covent Garden so I found it extremely hard to not go shopping after work – I think this is how I spent so much money, aha!
July has been a very exciting month for me, a lot of new doors have opened and it has inspired me to do a lot more stuff with my time. Travelling, days out and not just sitting about wasting my days. Life is too short and I would hate to look back in the future and think what if. Make the most of everything.
