July Favourites 2017

Mum's favourites

Rimmel Sun Shimmer

 Rimmel - Sun Shimmer

Summer time inevitably means that you can't get by with just t-shirts and jeans alone, dresses and skirts become worn on the regular - unless you don't mind sweating your arse off that is. I don't know about you, but, I happen to think that there is nothing more uncomfortable than being over-dressed, on a sunny day.

Being naturally pale is painful in the Summer months, I can't get a good tan of my own since I need to wear factor 30 or else burn and going without false tan is a sure fire way to have people staring in horror at my milk bottle pins. So, Rimmel's Sun Shimmer - instant tan, comes in super handy on those days when I want to give my legs some air.

With the weather being so unpredictable, it is the perfect tan for me to apply last minute and I love how natural it comes out. I've nearly finished a bottle already this month.

Orphan Black

Orphan Black 

I began watching this series at the beginning of the month and I became absolutely hooked. This series is an action packed, sci-fi thriller which I found on Netflix and I'm so surprised that I hadn't heard of it before. Tatiana Maslany who stars as the leading character(s) keeps you glued to the screen with her fantastic acting talent. I'm up to the third season and would definitely recommend this show if you're looking for a new watch!


Nude by Rihanna

My last favourite for this month, Nude by Rihanna. I love the seductive undertones of this perfume, it is summery but also very sensual. I feel like it has now become 'my' scent. Many times I find that I love a perfume but it doesn't feel authentic once worn, however I feel that Nude is a fragrance which I can see myself re-buying in future and making it my staple scent.

Mia's favourites

Num Noms

Num Noms

Mia has so many different toys that she collects - Shopkins, Grossery Gang, Tsum Tsums and I'm sure there is a few others, that I am forgetting. This month she has began collecting Num Noms which she enjoys playing with. They have scented tops which cover things underneath such as lip balms and nail polishes. Some also light up or move around on wheels. They are really cute, so they make a nice little treat for her through the week.

Rainbow rocks

My Little Pony - Rainbow Rocks

We have been seeing advertisements for the upcoming My Little Pony film, which Mia is really excited to watch! It isn't out until the beginning of October however she has been watching the older movies a lot this month, in anticipation for the new release. She loves playing with the equestrian dolls and taking them out too.

Gooey Louie

Gooey Louie

After watching many YouTube toy videos, Mia always asks for these kind of games, so this month she got Gooey Louis and she has found great humour in making all of the family play along. It is actually not as cringey as it seems and the boogers aren't slimy either, thank god! They are like squishy plastic. Each time Louie's brain pops out we get a fright and laugh.

 Thank so much for visiting to check out our favourites this month.
