It's already the end of July! ONE MONTH OF BLOGGING AH! This month has gone past so quickly and I have a load of favourites to share with you. I hope you enjoy this post and if you would like me to make this a regular 'end of month' blog post then please comment!

Batiste Dry Shampoo 

This has to be one of my most used products over the past month. It has a gorgeous refreshing scent and is quick and easy to use after going to the gym or if you don't have time to wash your hair before bed. 

It works by spraying it all over your hair then massaging it in and it removes any excess oil. I find that it works almost as well as a normal shampoo.

These are available in different scents and I would also recommend the 'blush' scent which is in a pink aerosol. 

Urban Decay Powder

I purchased this back around January and never used it however I came across it in my makeup storage and decided to try it out. Ever since then, i've been loving this powder for when you want coverage but you still want that 'natural' look.

This is perfect for the summer as no one wants to be wearing a thick liquid foundation during hot weather or when on holiday. I find that this covers blemishes and spots quite well and it stays on really well. 

As this is quite an expensive powder, I choose to wear a cheaper one on a daily basis but for those really hot days this would be the perfect powder! You can purchase this in more sophisticated stores such as The House of Fraser, it is not available in high street shops.

EOS Lip Balm

There seems to be a big hype about these lip balms and I kinda understand why. I love the design of them as they are easy to carry around in your handbag or in a purse. This literally goes everywhere with me...

It fully moisturises your lips and keeps them moisturized for a long period of time whereas other lip balms which are claimed to be 'long lasting' aren't that good. 

I would definitely recommend this product to any girl any age. 

BIO Oil 

Until recently, i've definitely underestimated this product and been a bit put off by the price but I suffered from an allergic reaction and had really dry skin on my face a couple months back and decided to give in and see if it was really worth the hype. 

This literally got my skin back to being hydrated so quickly, I had tried everything and this was the one product which quickly helped. If you have dry skin you should purchase this as it will most likely help. 

It's also got a lot of other benefits such as fading scars and stretch marks, sorting out uneven skin tone, ageing skin cure and rehydrates skin. This is a must have for summer for looking good and getting rid of those horrible stretch marks!

Hollister Palisades Beach Perfume

I usually stock up on my yearly perfumes during the Christmas break and they last me the majority of the next year. I bought this back in December specially for summer and I've been loving it ever since I opened it. As you can see from the picture above, i've used most of this already...

I love the scent, it has that floral and summery scent. I'm sure you'll understand what I mean aha!

This had to go in my July favourites as it just reminds me of summer whenever I smell or see it.

Fitness Magazine 

Purchase in your local supermarket or newsagent.

During the summer months, everyones so determined to get their version of the 'perfect body' and if your needing inspiration then I would send you in the direction of this magazine. It includes lots of fitness information and its a summer special so why not pick up a copy and read it on your summer travels whether that's on a plane, beach or at home.

I've learnt a few more fitness tips and recipes from this magazine and if you like a quick read then this is the one for you!

I hope you enjoyed my July favourites. Comment below your July favourites and if you have a blog post with your monthly favourites on then leave your link in the comments and i'll make sure to check it out.
